Guest reviews for Emerald Resort & Casino

Nice Self catering Chalets

Pros: The shuttle to the nearby casino was good, the animal park, game drive and water park were excellent.
Cons: The toilet and bathroom facilities need attention, the TV in the room could do with being larger (small screen in a large room looks wrong)
Location: Game drive and animal park, water park, casino and restaurants are all close by
The rooms were comfortable, spacious and very clean. Our stay was enjoyable and the staff were friendly. The hotel is undergoing renovations and changes to their facilities, and I would recommend that they rethink the toilet and bathroom facilities - a hand basin in a toilet that small just takes up space that is needed for your knees, and I think that a proper shower stall would suit the room better than the bath and hand spary that they have.
