I normally don't take the time to write reviews, but I feel like this place was so amazing that I have to brag about it. From the time we checked in to the time we checked out I have absolutely no complaints. We arrived in Destin much earlier than we anticipated so I decided to call and see about an early check in. This was at 11:00am and the room was not ready but they said they would call if they got it ready. I didn't expect a call because of some of the other reviews. Well 1 hour later at noon they called and said our room was ready to go and we could go ahead and check in. This was great!! Once we got there the girls at the front desk were super nice. Check in was a breeze and we went to our room which had a patio that opened up to the pool. The room was perfect. We ate breakfast every morning and the food was really good and no complaints about room service. Each time we called they said give us 25 minutes and it was always less. The beach shuttle to the beach was no big deal...we went every day and the longest we waited was 10 minutes for the shuttle. All the people working on the shuttle were really nice and the driver was super sweet. The harbor walk is very fun and upbeat. We really enjoyed the environment. We will definitely recommend this place to anyone and we will definitely be returning to Emerald Grande. This hands down is the best place we have ever stayed.
