Our stay at emerald palm was nice and comfortable. The property is very well maintained in terms of cleanliness, plantation, pool, fountains and service. It has a separate kids playing room with many activities, though most of them were paid. A few paid outdoor activities like shooting, car ride are also present. The resort is around 10-15 min. Walkable distance from the beautiful VarA§a beach The hotel staff allowed us for early check in and late checkout which was very appreciable The coccum juice welcome drink was very refreshing The Halloween night, DJ, and live evening music kept the evening charged up The 1BR apartment we were allotted was big, beautiful, well furnished with 2 separate rooms with attached bathroom (2) and 2 separate lawns We didn't took the hotel meals as it was too costly and had it at few nearby walkable restaurant The only prominent con the hotel has is the extremely high tariff of the taxi service from the hotel with the taxi union present right in front of the hotel not allowing any other taxi to pick up the guests To overcome this mess, guests can either hire a vehicle or taxi from nearby homes (so many of them) with pickup from their places I would genuinely advise the hotel to at least start a free shuttle service to nearby beaches, that would definitely raise their trp Overall, we had a very pleasant and comfortable stay at the resort and thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Goa.

It was a holiday trip with my family. We visited Goa in the month of September 2016. We booked this hotel through online process. The destination was a wonderful place. We like the beaches in Goa. The hotel location was convenient to stay. The hotel appearance was good with the interior look. The receptionist was polite and they were helped to do check-in and checkout process. The services staff were provided all requirements on time. The room provided was clean and well maintained. The basic facilities were available in the room. The bathroom was clean. The WiFi facility was available in the hotel. We had food from the hotel it was tasty. The spa facility was available in the hotel. It was very nice. The pick and drop facility was available in this hotel.
As Varca Beach resort is more popular, it gets filled up faster and sometime we get to stay only at this resort. Though this is good too, the added pool, added activities, vicinity of the beach makes Varca property more desirable as it is owned by Club Mahindra, where as Emerald is a leased property We have stayed at this Club Mahindra Emerald resort several times and we did enjoy the stay each time. The restaurant here serves good Goan food and also few international cuisine. In the evenings, there is a live counter of pasta, shallow/deep fried fish and other snacks as part of the buffet dinner. Good food indeed. There is also a bar that serves some alcohol. The swimming pool is squarish and lacks crowd, though there are a few water games like balls etc, it is boring to swim in the square pool. The car rentals are cheaper that the ones available from the Varca Beach Resort. There are also a few restaurants just outside the resort. But the residents of Emerald can access all the facilities of Varca beach as well The beach is exactly 1. 6KM away from this resort and most hate to walk this distance to the beach and there are no auto/taxis are available. It costs min Rs. 400 to take a cab from outside the resort, even to cover just 1. 6 km. Hotel doesn't have any vehicle to drop off from one resort to the other or to the nearby beach etc.
Not far from madgaon railway station just 5 or 6 km away is situated club mahindra emerald palms resort. Last year I with my friends stayed at this beautiful resort. The staff at the reception greeted us with flower petals and a complimentary drinks. The room we stayed was air conditioned with all modern amenities that include sofa cum double bed, TV, coffee maker. It is a perfect place to relax after a dip in the pool. We paid some high luxury tax at the resort because of Goa property as specified by the resort staff. Meals have always been good at Club Mahindra resorts for we have been to several Club Mahindra resorts. If you like at the resort there were places to have some hard drinks for enjoyable vacation to spoil yourself completely. Next day we went to the beach and a casino which was on a cruiseship which included the buffet meals, some entertainment show along with the entrance fees to the ship. It was absolutely worth it for the price and made our trip a perfect beach side vacation at Club Mahindra emerald palms resort.
Been here for an off season family holiday in July 2015. Nice Resort with quite big reception area and courageous staff. Enough big pool with designated kids space where they can have fun. Few tubes and balls were there to play. Two fountain in the open space where once can sit and relax. We got 1BHK having separate bedroom and living area. Bathroom has two door to have an access from both. Small dining table to have something inside room Staff was very good in restaurant as well room services. Room service was very prompt when needed. Precisely restaurant staff were very nice with offering us different variety from the menu. Very good care taken of my 2 year old daughter with food she can eat. This is newly acquired property so they do not have microwave and refrigerator in the rooms which is little disappointing. Local driver association do not allow you to rent a local car or bike from outside. Local sightseeing form cars outside property is little pricey. Best option if you are driving on your own vehicle if not rent a car from resort people only to have a safe travel. There have been cases where car rented locally got a flat tyre next morning.
Hotel is nice. But pool is small. It is a beach resort no arrangements in Bath rooms. House keeping is average. Food nice. Cost is affordable. Beach resort is superb and beautiful and clean. Beds are nice, kitchen is not provided with oven. No shampoo. Bed sheets not changing daily. On payment only they are changing. Bathrooms are not provided with buckets to clean wet sanded clothes. Activities also too rush and in a small room. Cycling is nice in beach. To stay for two or three days is beautiful relaxing and enjoying trip. Staff courtesy is average. Really we enjoyed the beach very much. Safety measures also nice. Sea foods are so yummy. Iceycreams all flavours not available for children.
I travelled with a friend of mine to Club Mahindra, Emerald Palms, Goa from 12-15 September 2016. This was my fifth visit to Club Mahindra Resorts. Earlier being CM Gir (in 2014) and Mussoorie, Binsar Villa, Kandaghat and Goa in 2016. The resort was certainly not the best of CM properties. Well maintained greenery and artistic statues. I would still rate Kandaghat as the best one, out of the five resorts visited by me. The distance from airport is around 30 km. We had a lot of problem in finding the resort. No where there was any sign/ direction board. Only at one place there was a board mentioned CM Varca Beach (and Emerald Palms was not mentioned), so we decided to ask for the direction from that resort only. But after one km, we found two boards for the two resorts. All good at CM Emerald Palms, Goa. Reception staff was prompt. Housekeeping staff was courteous and helpful. Rooms were good (I stayed in 1 BR room, Room No. 611), which was quite spacious with two balconies, two double beds, two toilets, two TVs. But there was no kitchenette. Balconies were not big enough though and one of the toilet seat did not have jet attached. The nearest beach was Varca Beach, which was around 1 km from the resort. But less said the better about the beach. It was a very isolated one and one would feel scared to visit after sunset. The restaurant in this resort was very costly. For example, if you are a member, you will have to pay Rs. 560 for breakfast. The dinner we had ordered in our room was also not very tasty, like the other resorts. There are two restaurants just outside the gate of the resort. We tried both. One of them is almost equally costly. Food in these restaurants was also not very tasty. May be because we had ordered vegetarian food only and their speciality was perhaps in Goan food. If you are going to this resort for just keeping yourself in the resort and not exploring Goa, then it is a good resort. The swimming pool inside the resort and the isolated beach could also give you enjoyment. But if you want to explore other beaches, Panaji and other places, then its not worth. Why I am saying this is because, the best beaches and tourist crowd is in North Goa. Unlike South Goa, where this resort is located, North Goa has crowd at beaches. The distance from this resort to Baga beach is around 60 km and it takes at least two hours one way. So you lose four hours daily in travel only. If you are not a member of Club Mahindra, I would suggest you stay in Mapusa or Panaji or somewhere in North Goa only. But if you want to just stay indoors, then this resort is also good. The evening activity is really wonderful. You have DJ, Goan Dance, Magic Shows, etc. In the evenings. Swimming pool is very nice and a lot of crowd is seen in the pool. Pradeep Kumar New Delhi
