“Nice short stay after sailing trip”
Reviewed 6 June 2011

Stayed here for two nights after 14 days on a small sailboat in the BVI, so keep in mind we were just tickled to have air conditioning and a flushing toilet! We found it reasonably priced (off season) and clean. Free drink ticket when we arrived - for 2 rum punches. Can't say we were thrilled with the drinks or food, but it filled the void. Beautiful sandy beach... Airplane noise, but we expected that, and it didn't bother us in the room. We chose the 3rd floor for the view and didnt mind carrying our bags up the stairs. Enjoyed seeing the two private sailboats anchored right out front.

We're not really super picky and most of our reviews are very positive. Here's what happened on our one stay. We checked in and went to our superb room right on the beach, that's where things started down hill. The room was a mess and clearly hadn't been made. The desk apologized and offered a room on the 3rd floor, same building. She left out that there was no elevator. We finally got all our bags up 3 flights of stairs then went to dinner. When we got back the room was hot even after running the AC while we were at dinner. We called and the only room left was next door a double bed Vs a King. I'm waiting as I write this I'm glad to say it looks like the maintenance guy seems to have our AC working. It's now almost 10 pm. I think this is going to work. No offers of reduced rate, but the lady at the desk will be here tomorrow so she agreed to give us a late check out. That means we can swim in the morning, get a shower, and catch our late flight home if the AC holds up.

The staff are great but this hotel needs some work and is clearly not managed well or they would not give customers rooms that aren't clean and have A/C's that need maintenance workers to turn them on. Next time we'll stay somewhere else.

We stayed here for a 6 days and had no complaints. Room was neat and clean. Furnishings are a little dated but who cares when you have the most beautiful view of the beach from your room! Had no problem getting beach towels. Front staff were courteous and extremely helpful. The beach was clean and the waters were warm and clear. If relaxing is your thing this beach is an excellent choice. The beach bar had great burgers (huge!) and rum punch, definitely try it out.

We had a lovely stay. Had a few problems with our rooms but the staff took care of fixing the mix up the next day. Rooms were in building 1.....great views. Housekeeping very helpful and friendly as were all the staff, especially Tiffany. Had a great and relaxing time with our friends who were first time visitors. We'll all be back! Janet

This hotel is very convenient to the airport 2-5 minutes, and about a 10 minute taxi ride to town. Taxi rides are $6/person either place.
Beach is very pretty. Not a beach for long walks but good for lounging and dipping.
Rooms were nice size and beds clean and comfortable. Food expensive for what you get, we ate next door and had better luck.
Check in and out was on "Island time" so be sure to give yourself extra time.

This hotel has a beautiful beach, which was enjoyed by guests and locals alike. Our room was not ready when we arrived in the afternoon, so the front desk gave us a complimentary drink coupon.

Our room was on the third floor overlooking the beach. It was adequate. It was an end room and had an open window in the bathroom with no screen and no crank to close the window. So, there were mosquitos in the bathroom. We just shut the door. Overall is was a good place to stay close to the airport to catch our flight out in the morning. The staff was very helpful.

The Emerald Bay Best Western seemed like a good choice when searching online. Both the bar service and restaurant had awful service and prices are definitely high for the quality of food and service. Don't show your welcome drink pass to the bar before you order or you will get a partial/weak drink. The room was clean and nice, just short on simple things like coffee, towels, tissues. Would not bring a guest back to this "resort".
