“Business or pleasure?”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

I stayed at the Emerald Resort during a business trip in May 2013. It was wonderfully relaxing, the rooms were quiet, clean, the internet worked flawlessly, and all the facilities were in good order. Definitely value for money, and I had a hard time not thinking that I was on holiday.

The Emerald Resort and Casino is very close to our home and so if we have visitors especially from overseas it is somewhere nice to take them. There is a Safari Park with lots of animals, a Water World for kids, amusements for all ages. Good restaurants from upmarket to fast food. I haven't stayed in the Hotel or Lodges but hear they are quite good.

Room Tip: As I said I live local so have not stayed at the resort.

Was in South Africa on business and stayed at the Emerald. The staff was excellent and the breakfast was incredible. Room was clean and very nice. Would recommend this hotel to anyone. As for the restaurants we ate at 2 of the casino restaurants, Breeze and the one inside the casino (can't remember the name, high stakes or something like that). The one in the casino was very good, really enjoyed the food there. Breeze was a mess. All the food was dry and overcooked and the waiter was rude and demanded a certain percentage as a tip from the whole group. Not a great meal, if I was ever in the area again I would still stay at the Emerald and just skip Breeze.

Arrived here late Monday night to find wrappers under the luxury slipper bath, clearly cleaning was not very thorough the day before.

Day 2 and Day 3, my breakfast room service (my yoghurt) from the Day 2's breakfast is still in my room - charming, outside the fridge. My dinner from Day 2, take away pizza and salad is still in my room.

Day 2 and 3, no cookies or water bottle replaced in my room.

Clearly quality of service is not what I'd recommend this place for.

we stayed at the bush lodge, was very nice, very clean, spacious, private, rooms were very nice, was truly a bush experience, but 4 star, maybe... I can only imagine what the river lodges might have been lie and that was rated 3 star... the little zoo that Emerald ahs is quite nice. The aquadome to me was dissappoiting... its more for kids and toddlers, so as an adult dont expect too much. The casino is small, the restaurants were nice and there are some fast food options,
cant really see the Vaal dam which we thought we could from the lodges...
There is a really nice pub on the back entrance of the resort which is on the vaal, where we spent the afternoon having drinks there, around 3 to 5km from the resort. All in all it was pretty decent,

Room Tip: definitely chose the bush lodges over the river lodges if you want more upmarket.

Lovely setting.
Chalets(especially the bathrooms) very old and delapidated
Linen and towels clean.
Excellent choice for a family break.
We spend 5 days and had enough to kept us busy all the time.
We used our boat for 3 great trips on the river.
The cleaning staff very unfriendly and rude when they want to collect linen - no concideration if you are still in bed or busy - need to be addressed. Did not ruin or time but a nuisance.
