“Simply fabulous! No complaints!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

I was a guest at Emerald Grand thanks to the generousity of a family member. We stayed in a beautiful 3br/2ba condo with a nice balcony that overlooked U.S. 98, the main "strip" in Destin, and the harbor. The condo was extremely comfortable - great beds and linens, well-stocked kitchen, several flat-screen TVs, nice combo living room/dining room. Other special touches included a washer/dryer, huge shower in one bathroom with a built-in seat, and huge soaking tub and separate walk-in shower in the other bathroom. The condo was nearly perfect - there was some noise at night but not bad enough to inhibit sleep.
What awaits you outside the condo is the best part of Emerald Grande, however! We LOVED taking the shuttle boat to the private beach. The shuttle runs every 30 minutes and is a fun way to get to the beach. The beach has nice umbrellas and chairs, with employees who bring you drinks, etc. The beach area is in a little cove, so the water is calm and a gorgeous, crystal-clear shade of emerald green. Lots of children were enjoying the water, which is nice and shallow. The best part: if you order room service from the hotel, it can be delievered right to the beach! And the room service food is actually really good!
I really can't imagine anything better than sitting on a comfortable lounge chair under a shade umbrella, eating a yummy lunch and looking at the fabulous views of beach, bridge and boats.
Other features I really liked included the large outdoor pool, good customer service and restaurants and shops located within a short walk of the condo.

Room Tip: We stayed on the side of the hotel facing east, which featured good views. Next time we would like t...

I stayed here with my wife's family in March 2012. We made the trip to Destin from AR to get married on the beach. This place was really nice. Great view of the Harborwalk and close to everything. Really nice modern rooms, bathrooms, walk in showers, huge balcony overlooking the harbor. Would definitely stay here again. Really cool place.

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!

Stayed here for spring break with my family of five in a 3 bedroom/3 bath condo booked through book it. The establishment is in a good location close to all the water activities on the harborwalk, although at night it can be loud due to the pub across the street playing live music. Our first night was a bit rocky, I was awakened at 2am by loud college students next door. I had to call guest services five times in order to quiet them and didn't get back to sleep until after 4 am. The rest of our stay was pretty uneventful. The condo has everything you need kitchen, washer/dryer, etc. Overall, our stay was good.
