We are regulator visitors to Florida and selected this location after a lot of research. The Emerald Island Resort is the best location that we have stayed at so far. It is very close to Disney, especially to Animal Kingdom and Blizzard Beach using the shortcut via Sherberth Road. Also the Intestate 4 is close by offering easy access to Seaworld and Universal.
The house was situated on a well maintained and pleasant road and was a great place to chill out in between going to the theme parks. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of space and we never felt on top of each other. The pool area was not overlooked at the rear and there was plenty of furniture as we spent a lot of time around the pool, eating our breakfast outside every day and enjoying many an evening drink.
We spent some time by the Clubhouse pool and bar for a change. All the staff that we met were pleasant and helpful and we managed to book on line tickets using the free computers.
We felt very safe at this resort and felt that the security is very good.
The resort feels very select and private but is so close to the 192 and virtually every restaurant franchise that you can of, is within a 5-10 minute drive. There is also a Winn Dixie Supermarket which is really well stocked about a 2 minute drive from the resort.
We all enjoyed our stay at this resort and house and would return here again for a future holiday.
