The Emerald Grande
All the local know about it, have seen it and most have visited it. How many of you have actually stayed here?
As a local, I’ve visited people staying here and I even take fitness classes out on the Captain’s Deck. But the chance to stay onsite with a group of ladies who were not familiar with the area was a chance I could not pass up. I also had no idea the vast array of amenities available to the guests. From the concierge desk on the Grand Vista level, to the Grande Vista Grill onsite, pools, beach access, free wi-fi, and the spa – there is something for the whole family. The rooms have full kitchens if you prefer to dine in as well as all of the comforts of home (coffeemaker! shampoo!) The pool is spacious and when you stay onsite, they will check out towels poolside. There is even a shuttle that will take you to a semi-private beach complete with beach service. (Thanks Quentin!)
The Emerald Grande offers several packages to make your couples getaway, family vacation or honeymoon special. Once on-site if you need help deciding what to do next, Maria at the concierge desk can help! She has information on local restaurants, charter boats and movie theaters. (Maria is also a great friend of mine and she really does seem to know EVERYONE.)
The Emerald Grande is located right on Harborwalk Village and its amazing shops, restaurants and nightlife. Harborwalk Village even has a Kids Zone and is opening a Zip Line course and rock wall on 6/15. I can’t wait to try it out and fly across the length of Harborwalk in the blink of an eye.
Emerald Grande and Harborwalk are quite a gem in the Destin community and I am happy to visit them often.
