That would be the Emerald Grande, part of the Harborwalk Village.

Search this forum for various opinions, some quite volatile.

That place goes by a couple names around here...

To tourists like you and me...The Big Disney-Like Place.

To the developer and condo owners...Heaven on Earth.

To locals...The Devil's Lair.

In the phone book...The Emerald Grande.

I too would like to see a review from an actual tourist that stayed there, not one from an owner pimping the place or a local blasting the place.

I'm confused-I thought the reviews on this site were written by people that had actually stayed there? Personally, based on the reviews, I would not stay there. I may be biased though, because I am one of those people who refer to it as "that monstrosity they built on the harbor".
