I went with a large faimly group for a wedding. Have been to Emerald Island many times, but have never stayed at this particular place. It has a great location, but that is all. We tried several times to call before coming to find out the amenties of the room(s), but it was push one of 5 choices, then one of 6 choices, etc. Never could get a live person on the phone. Since the suites are advertised has having a mini refrig and a microwave we didn't bring anything with us except some basic food supples -drinks, snacks. The kitchen area has no plates, cups or silverware. Neither does the suites have a iron, iron board or a hair dryer.
The room service brought clean towels but did not empty the trash. The suite we were in had tile floors, but no broom to sweep sand . Being right on the beach there is of course sand tracked in. The pool was nice, but no hot tub area which would have been nice.
The bathroom was adequate. The ice machine was located in the middle of the complex.
The one other thing. The Islander is located next to the Western Regional Beach Access area- so by mid morning and later there are hundreds of people on the beach . So the area in front becomes very crowded. The people come to the access area and then walk down to the beach and go to the right or left. So the area becomes very congested. More so than places that are in the center of the Island.
For the money paid I would expect better amenties. It it conviently located on the Island.
