An amazing time spent at a place of excellence. Please include a map to the mini market for those guests who take a shuttle to the chalet. Keep up the wonderful service. The employees at the mini-market had been very friendly and helpful as well as the shuttle driver.

We stayed in the Bush Lodges - they are very spacious and comfortably accommodated 3 adults. The kitchen is fully fitted and you can easily prepare food. The verandah along the front of the lodge is wide and is a great place to relax for an afternoon sunset or eat a meal. The showers offer good water pressure and quick hot water. The breakfast included was of a very high quality - they were able to provide a good spread while complying with government Covid regulations. The staff were all great - reception and the restaurant. I needed to work during the trip and the WIFI was fast and reliable. They also have good backup power that comes on within a couple of minutes of a municipal power outage. The Animal World and safari game drive are also very good - the animals are in a very condition, and they have a good number of animal sand variety of species. The only downside we could think of was that the lighting in the lodge was a bit dim.

We were invited to attend the opening of Gas Monkey Pub & Grill and stayed over at the Hotel. What an amazing evening of partying at Gas Monkey (especially after being cooped up at home during Lockdown). Great stay at the Hotel too... really comfy bed and a great breakfast the next morning too.

Your self catering chalets need to be revamped urgently. Kitchen cupboards were oily and dirty, oven was greasy and the kitchen cupboards are worn out. curtains need to be replaced, they are frayed and some of the rings are missing. Lounge seating also needs to be replaced the couch was dirty and had stains. Bathroom and toilet windows full of sider weds and spiders not sure when last that was cleaned. Bathroom rowels were off white and worn out I rather used my own. Only one bedside light was working, this should be check before check in. Bedding had dark marks on the duvet cover. For a resort and I really do like Emerald, I expected more it really felt like sleeping in a cheap motel. I will not be returning to your chalet section any time soon. This was a real disappointment.

Hello nabrah372813 Thank you for your review and comments. I apologise that your experience did not live up to your expectations or our normal high standards. I am disappointed that you found the chalets to be ‘disappointing’ and will pass on your comments to the various management structures to ensure that this is remedied. Our chalets are however in the process of being renovated (on hold because of the lockdown). As you, our guest are most important to us and I do hope that we will see you again where I’m sure that your experience will be better. Laurent Pacariz Emerald Resort & Casino Operations Manager
