Our family spent a week at the Emerald Grande from April 11th thru the 18th. It was our first time, and it was wonderful. I read reviews for months prior to our vacation and was somewhat concerned about things like beach access, pool size and difficulty getting around the resort. Let me say that we were more that satisfied with the beaches available to the resort, they fit our young, and not so young, family members perfectly. There is a choice of two, and they are both beautiful with great staff to help you set up and take care of your needs while you are enjoying the beautiful white sand and emerald green water. The shuttle to and from could not have been more convenient and the crews were so very friendly, and attentive. The pool was wonderful as well. The water was very comfortable and we enjoyed the poolside service very much. The staff in general on the entire property were great. The bell captain, Brian, exceeded our requests, and was so pleasant, as were the all of the bell boys. The front desk staff always helped and again were very pleasant with every need that we had. Our check in and out were as smooth as could be.We loved the convenience of the Harborwalk, the restaurants were great with great food and views. We didn't even rent a car, and had no regrets about doing so. The only little problem we had was navigating around the resort the first few days, until we found our "route" to and from whatever we were going, whether it be the pool, the beach or the Harborwalk. The elevator system is a bit challenging, but once we caught on, we were fine. We were guests of Wyndham and the assistant guest services manager, Mark is fabulous!!! He helped us so much, as was Klaus, a very nice gentlemen that was more that helpful in so many ways. Thank you so much to both of these gentlemen that helped make our vacation so nice. All in all in was truly a wonderful family vacation, and we are more than looking forward to a return next year. Thank you Emeral Grande!!!!!
