This is an amazing place for the whole family and not far of a drive to relax for the weekend. You have many different things available to do and if you a parent, the kids are never bored. Will definitely revisit anytime:) PS: Stayed at the River Resort (Chalets)

Arrive early to avoid long queues. All activities have to be booked and paid for at the front desk, except for Animal World. This can be a pain if you only want to go to the adventure golf or bowling and you have to wait in line with all the people wanting to go into the aquadome. We missed out...

Chalet condition has deteriorated. Not enough dishes in kitchen. Sink cupboard smells as if wet - stinks. Internal doors are creaky. Roads from casino to chalet very bumpy and massive potholes. Had to wait a while to get key.

We celebrated my wife birthday by visiting Emeralds and stayed overnight at the chalets and the experience was refreshing. Thank you for the good service and friendliness of security at the gate, reception staff and house keeper on site who made our stay an awesome experience to remember. We all loved the environment and would definitely do it again!
