My family needed a great place that would appeal to all ages and after days of looking at websites, we chose the Emerald Dolphin. We are so glad we did. We absolutely loved it. The rooms were very nice- the staff bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed- and even put things in the rooms for our family for us. We had about 45 family members and put together a mini golf tournament. the 18 hole course is bigger than it looks and twice the fun! They even opened a little early for our family and we all had a blast!!! We used the outdoor patio there for a little get together and food and then could just walk back over to our rooms. Everyone had a great time- some even booked a future trip with out the kids- They have jacuzzi fireplace rooms!! And for those with dogs- it could not have been more perfect since there is a walking trail to the ocean and a big field next to the motel. So nice- so perfect. My Aunt is getting married next year this time- and she is even considering the field next to the inn. A tent and lots of room- ocean in background- OH the possibilities!
