This place was booked just for a night. The room was very clean and spacious. The check in and check out was smooth. Staff is very friendly. Vegetarian food had wide spread and it was delicious. Beach is about 10 minutes away. Taxi and scooters are available just outside the gate for reasonable price.

Service should be improved. Rooms are cleaned but when we came from outside still the room was not cleaned. We ordered for bathroom chappals they didn't give us so finally we went on counter and took from them.

Went there for a family vacation. Courteous staff, decent facilities. A kilometer away from the beach and you will have to walk or shell 100 bucks for the taxi. Sad part is self driven taxis are not allowed in the premises as it is in Varca and this is true for any resort in Varca.
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 VarÃ§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.

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.

In the month of February it was a holiday trip. The destination was very hot, the cab was best way to reach hotel. Architecture was good front office very spacious, photos were nice. The appearance of the hotel was excellent internally and externally. Service was good; they were not providing complimentary food. Rooms were spacious and clean. All amenities were available there. There were no indoor and outdoor activities. There was no pick and drops. That was an amazing time to spend. There was no delay in check in and checkout. The staff's members were helpful and very friendly in service.

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.

Club Mahindra Emerald Palms is a very nice resort in Goa. It is 45 minutes drive away from Dabolim airport. Madgaon railway station is just 20 minutes away. So the commute becomes easy.
I stayed there twice and my stay was pretty comfortable. My family, especially my kid enjoyed it the most.
The restaurant is nice. They provide variety of food options. The ambience is pretty cool.
There are different activities carried out inside as well as outside the resort.
Inside, they have facilities like, swimming pool, gym, cycling, spa and special game zone for kids.
Outside, they take you for different Tours like, paragliding, boating, sightseeing etc.
Club Mahindra Varca beach resort is just 1. 5 kms away from Emerald Palms. One can visit that resort as well.
