I went to the resort for five days, four nights in July for a conference. I took my daughter and mother with and we had two rooms. The rooms are very nice, very spacious. Check in was a breeze and bags were brought up right away and bellman was extremely kind. He was from Minnesota and gave us several ideas...

Although I stayed here as a couple I could tell this was a very family friendly place. The beds were super comfortable. We had a room with a balcony facing the golf course. I used this balcony to dry my wet clothes from the pool. That 100 degree weather did the job quite nice. I was disappointed that there was...

Thank you for your lovely comments about our team members and our resort property and we appreciate your suggestion on the hot tubs. As amazing as it may seem, the hot tubs do get utilized in the summer, particularly on cooler evenings. We look forward to having the opportunity of serving you again one day soon.

My husband and I recently went here to celebrate our anniversary. It was great the pool was so relaxing, and the room was perfect. The people who really made the trip completley worth while though were the staff.

I read a lot of the reviews for this hotel before booking. It seemed that anyone who had a bad experience here was on a weekend trip. We started on a weekday in June and it was amazing. We only stayed for one night, but we really got a lot out of our trip. The pool was not at all...

My family stayed for 2 nights (6/16-6/18). Pros: 1. Great sandy beach pool that is not too deep for my 4-year old 2. Because we stayed during non peak days, there were plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas 3. Ice cold water is station at the pool area 4. Two tennis courts 5. Room was clean, comfortable, and quiet 5....

Hotel rooms are very nice. Service is good, location is good, and grounds are pleasant, but if you're a visitor with a pool day in mind, this is not the place.

We stayed at the Esmeralda over Memorial Day weekend (Saturday to Tuesday). Despite the huge number of people there, we had a fantastic time! The room and bathroom were spacious - not cramped at all. The beds were so comfortable! We stayed on the 6th floor, just down the hall from the area that opens up to the lobby below...

We were with my daughters and 2+ year old grandson during Memorial Day weekend and the rooms were very comfortable, the staff very accommodating. The poolside Beach is the BEST for young children...kept him captivated for hours and the easy slope into the pool made it ideal. Bonus: On the holiday weekend, they set up a huge water slide for...

Let me start off saying that the public areas, conference areas and all amenities were gorgeous and it is in a fabulous location. However when you get into the hallways/suites that's where it starts to fall short. The rooms do show their age even though the hotel just underwent a large renovation. The main area where you can tell the...

We appreciate your kind words about our team members, public areas and location. The room service tray should have been removed immediately and we thank you for bringing this to our attention.
