Emerald Greens Condo Resort
Ranked #44 of 163 Hotels in Tampa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 1, 2011

This was the second "golf buddies" trip to Emerald Greens. It is not a resort hotel but rather a condo/villa development in the center of three VERY nice 9 hole golf courses. As such it doesn't have the full line of services that one would find in a major hotel, but that shouldn't detract from anyone's enjoyment who is there for a golf holiday. For non golfers there are tennis courts and a massive pool with a separate protected water play area for children at the pool complex.

The condos are very comfortable, spotlessly clean and daily maid service that includes dishwashing, keeps it that way. Marvelously comfortable Tempur mattresses insure a good night's sleep after a day on the links.

All the photographs on the website are a true representation of what you will find at this resort.

The golf courses are in wonderful condition with generous fairways, although with plenty of water to make up for this generosity.

The staff are always polite and helpful.

If you don't want to cook for yourself, you do have to pay attention to the opening days and times of the dining facilities at Emerald Greens. The main dining room is only open Wednesday through Saturday and the bar menu which is available everyday closes early in the evening. The food that our group ordered was not Michelin star but was well above our expectations.

There was some shuffling of tee times and courses to accommodate the private members and tournaments, but this didn't detract from several days of very enjoyable golf.

From the first phone call to Drew to plan the trip, through to the last email after we left, from Jessica with their Sangria recipe, the staff was extremely helpful. The rooms were large, beautiful and convenient to the golf course and Tampa Airport. It was easy to make changes in the reservations as our plans changed. We had 14 golfers ranging from scratch to high handicaps and all enjoyed the golf. They made it easy to get on the course, but it was no problem to play other courses while staying at Emerald Greens. The staff really went out of their way to make sure we were enjoying our vacation. Excellent restaurant suggestions of Iavarones and Mimis, as well as our meals at the resort. The prices for the rooms and golf were very reasonable. You will not be disappointed, and we plan to return.

Because we had such a good experience in February, we decided to return to Emerald Greens. Our main purpose was to play tennis... the courts are wonderful!! I can't say enough about the courteous and accomodating staff! The resort was very clean and well kept in all areas. The suite was plenty big for the 4 of us, room service provided daily.
We are already planning our next trip to this fantastic resort.

This resort was chosen by my friends, who get married over the weekend. The 2 bedroom suite was more than enough room for the 3 of us that stayed in it. It was beautiful, clean, and all staff was very nice and helpful. It is in a great location also. I would definitely stay here again if I made another trip to Tampa.

Booking this over the phone and email was a great experience from beginning to end. There was nothing but good things to say about the whole experience: the room, dining, golfing and the staff were outstanding. They even have Tempur- Pedic mattresses.
I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a place to enjoy a getaway to somewhere warm and or a golf destination.

Went as a group of 4 buddies on a long weekend golf getaway. This place blew all of us away. I'd recommend calling them up (versus booking online) as the sales manager (Drew) hooked us up with the package and set up some deals on other golf courses as well. He was incredibly helpful and responsive, and offered a number of alternatives to accomodate us. Then I got a confirmation document with itineraries and tee times, so we knew exactly where to go.

The price was good...fantastic for a group of 4, versus staying in a hotel.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo unit. We arrived to find a full modern granite kitchen, appliances and dishes, 6 complimentary happy beverages waiting for us, a washer and dryer, free wireless internet, 3 flat screen TVs, golf carts parked outside our door (golf carts had heaters and air conditioners if you can believe that!), 2 full bathrooms....everything a hotel has to offer and then much more.

Oh and the golf was great, the clubhouse had fantastic food and service. They have even better all-u-can play deals, which we will probably take advantage of next time.

I'm not sure if they will continue to offer this (or if they are temporarily filling vacancies while they sell these units) but I would recommend taking advantage of this while it lasts. We are already planning our next trip there.
