We booked a one bedroom stand alone chalet but was given a attached chalet. Next door there were little kids that were screaming and pushing and pulling things around.

Very bad stay
It was not good due to the noise that happened while we were there. There was a concert that lasted till 3am. I try to get compensation for the sleepless night, they offered me a game drive. I felt very cheap since I paid in full. At the moment I will not recommend this hotel to anyone e

Poor service & unfriendly staff
I was booked in the hotel from 29/4/18 to 1/5/2018 however i had much more complaints than complements ; Complaints * service - very slow, not efficient and extremely poor * staff very rude * roads inside full of potholes * pools in aquadome were ice cold * beezy restuarant. Waited an hour for our meal. And 10 minutes at the door before someone assisted us to be seated, and we were the only ones standing waiting. *casino very stuffy, no aircon, poor vantilation * poor info on activities * The very reason we also booked at Emerald was becoz of the Aquadome expecting the pools to he heated but only the lazy pool was heated, so very dissappointed as thats the only pool we could go into, hence ALL the pools inside the dome suppose to be heated. * while on our stay, we also came across other guests complaining as well, the one guest didnt get the room he booked and the same time as checking in, he checked out. * Another guest complained about 1 night not having a good sleep as there was a special function outside and the noise was unbearable. Compliments * very clean inside and outside the resort * stunning views * excellent activities and entertainment, absolutely loved the putt putt course. * food in both restaurants, absolutely delicious. * easy access in and around the resort.

You get what you pay for - special rate a ploy!
Special rate applied, but in the end it was not worth any more than the special rate. The non - smoking unit we got smelled so bad of smoking that they we had to ask them to allocate us another one. Luckily they had another that was not as bad. Bathroom a bit of a shock. Shower over bath with not even a curtain. Bath condition not good so taking a bath not an option. As said, the stay not worth more than the "very" special rate so that should be the real rate.

Relaxing Getaway
It was a really nice relaxing break, spotlessly clean. Friendly staff. Lots to do. Really enjoyed the animal park. Casino small.
