I read many of the reviews that are less than stellar and have to wonder what those people are thinking. This is a wonderful place (which I understand is about to get a facelift) for the price point. It is close to everything and has a great and attentive staff. They offer bicycles and kayaks at no extra charge. Sure, there is going to be sand on the floor and in a party town like this there is going to be loud music occasionally. But the sand is not something anyone could control and the air conditioning units in the rooms provide enough "white noise" to cover the music and allow a good sleep. If you want more, then bite the bullet and pay the price....

The Emerald Isle is a great place to stay on Pensacola Beach. All rooms face the gulf and the ammenities are top notch. The entrance is a little tough to find, especially after dark, and if your accomodations are on the 17th floor, be sure to ask for the elevator code...access to the top floor is restricted. We found the code in the welcome package afterwards, but there was no indication as to what it was and we played phone tag with management for a while before someone finally advised us. Other than that, we had no complaints whatsoever.

It was a whim, we wanted some "beach time", so I went to the Internet and set it up. The reservations in Expedia were easy with hotel and air fare in one charge. The hotel is extremely nice. My wife and I were traveling without the kids, and this resort in September is great. All the kids are the tiny ones that were not yet in school. The pool deck area was large and the kids stayed on one side, leaving the adults to be quieter on the other side (near the bar ... ;) ).

The hotel was very clean. Our room was a nice size and the beds were comfortable. The restaurant had exceptionally good breakfast. Everyone who worked there was friendly and helpful. We had a great experience. Beachfront was amazing.

This was a nice property with lovely views of the ocean and beach. Everything was clean and we were allowed to check in early since our flight arrived earlier than usual check-in time. Front desk staff was very nice, even though they were very busy since it was a Saturday with lots of guests. We enjoyed the fresh cookies every evening, and the breakfast was fine - what we expect from Hampton and a nice way to start the day. Location was perfect and easy to find. Would stay here again.

Pensacola Beach is an unincorporated community on Santa Rosa Island, part of a 150-mile stretch of barrier islands running from Mississippi to Florida. Downtown Pensacola is 11 miles away and accessible via bridges. A boardwalk lines the landward side, along Casino Beach. Fort Pickens, built in 1834, is at the western tip of the island, about 6 miles away.
