After staying at Tidewater last year, this so called resort reminded us of a Days Inn. Opened the door and was hit by an old musky smell. Liner in shower was nasty with mold! Carpet was dirty & stained. Horrible smell at entrance to beach. Can not take cooler in pool area. View was beautiful but you can get that... More

Dirty- the bedding pad between the sheets and mattress was flipped over and had what looked like a fresh, orange vomit stain on it, the walls were filthy, and the carpet looked like a petting zoo had lived there. Out dated, all but one piece of furniture on balcony was broken. Elevators were gross all day, everyday and the fans... More

This was our first time renting thru VRBO. The unit was dirty when we walked in stains on the comforter. Bunk Bed top bunk creaked loudly whenever moved on it or touched. Which caused us to use the pullout, not part of our plan. It was uncomfortable. The couch had stains. Only 4 bath towels, 2 hand towel and 2... More

We stayed at this so called "resort" for a baseball tournament the first week of July. Our team mom promised it would be fabulous..not so much! The units are all run down and dirty. The carpet is disgusting and we had to insist they come clean the carpets it was so stained. There was mold coming out of all the... More

We had a Very Nice Stay while staying at Emerald Beach Resort. We stayed from Wednesday, July 2nd until Sunday, July 6th 2014. We actually rented from an individual that owned his own unit. We found the location of Emerald Beach Resort just fine and close to a lot of things to do within walking distance. On arrival we could... More

The only reason this receives an average review is because of the amenities. The pools were amazing and there is a Starbuck's in the lobby. Big score on both counts. The room was rather beat up and ran down though. The carpet was disgusting and I didn't feel comfortable walking around in my bare feet and constantly had flip-flops on.... More

My husband & I went to PCB a few weeks ago for the first time in a long time. PCB in itself is a very busy place. The Emerald Beach is a big resort. Offering lots of amenities such as Starbucks. We booked thru Sterling Resorts. Everything went smoothly. Would stay here again. You do have to figure your way... More

This is our second stay at Emerald Beach Resort. We book through our travel club, Global Discovery Vacations, and I'm glad to say we have confidence in what accommodations we will have when we reserve through them. I think many of the bad ratings come from poorly or non-managed units. We stayed in #2030, a two bedroom with a set... More

We rented the unit for 3 days (2 nights) in May 2014. The unit itself was worn and not quite clean. The furniture was quite worn. The carpet was stained; I believe it's not that clean, since I got runny nose after sleeping a night there. The most irritating one is the air conditioner: it just didn't work. It blew... More
