We stayed here for Spring Break with a family of 6 in a 3br/3ba condo. We were in room 427 and the views were gorgeous. A little noisy at times because we were partially facing the bridge/hwy 98 and you can hear the cars passing by but it really wasn't that bad. The room was clean and had more than what we needed in it. Housekeeping was there everyday, cleaned dishes and put them back in the cabinets, made all the beds, took away used towels and re-stocked all the bathrooms with new ones. There were free movies to "rent" from the kiosk which was right on our floor. The entire staff was friendly and helpful and I have no complaints. I read few reviews about the horrible service so I was somewhat expecting it but never once encountered anyone rude the whole week I was there. The location is fantastic and we loved hanging out on the Harborwalk. Great food, nice shops, great atmosphere.
Unfortunately, there are people in this world that just seem to have a negative experience no matter where they go or what they do. If you're one of those people, then I guess you won't like this resort. If you're like the rest of us that are looking for a beautiful, clean place to stay with everything close by and really want to have a great time, the Emerald Grande is the place for you.
We will certainly be back!
