    Service needs to be improved

    Recently stayed at Emerald Beach on a business trip to St. Thomas. Location is wonderful. Nice beach, good bar & restaurant. Service poor. We waited over 5 hours to get into our room. We never had the right amount of towels, soap, coffee etc. Housekeeping needs to be improved. We sprayed ourselves for the ants. Had it not been for Gary, an exceptionally nice employee, we might have changed hotels. He was very accommodating. Brought us towels, soap, coffee, extra blanket, etc. Anything we were short that we needed he brought us. Beds were comfortable & the view fantastic. Will probably stay there again next year because the beach is so nice. But really hope that they improve their service.

    Resort near St Thomas Airport

    This facility is just off the airport property on a beautiful section of beach. Some aspects of our room were below expectations, and the housekeeping and support staff were less than friendly. However, the room was clean and comfortable, the beachfront restaurant is good (causal dining), and the bar is just right!

    Brother's 50th Birthday Getaway

    The Emerald Beach Resort was the perfect backdrop to a fun filled family vacation. The hotel was right on the beach which allowed us to indulge in watersports and take as relaxing stroll. The staff was exemplary and the food delicious. The event planner assisted us in planning a ddr delicious birthday dinner. She also provided helpful hints about places to eat and things to do. All twelve of us truly enjoyed our stay!

    Not the fanciest resort, but what a view!

    First time visit to the Emerald Beach Resort. Great location across the street from the airport. Never heard airplanes unless I was outside. Room was decent but can use some renovation. Hot water in the shower did not last very long, but I go used to it. Bed was comfortable. Television was a bit blurry and why Oxygen channel on multiple channels? But the view of Lindbergh Beach and beyond is fantastic. Staff members were nice and we had excellent meals at the Caribbean Fusion restaurant. Would definitely stay there again.

    great place, not fancy but real island feel

    if you want a big ship type hotel this is not your place. clean and island laid back. One of a few places on the beach that is not a condo rental which is risky. Has a beach bar where some locals hang out at
