Great place to have your wedding!
Great venue to have your ceremony and reception. The venue is very accommodating and Carol was great to work with. The ballroom looks really nice and the venue is reasonably priced.Sent on 11/20/2019

Great location right on the beach
The Islander was our hotel of choice for our wedding guests. They were very friendly to work with in setting up our block of rooms. Everyone we worked with was so nice. When one of our guests had issues with flights and arrived very early in the morning the hotel was very accommodating to them.Sent on 10/07/2019
Being right on the beach was great and they even have beach chairs that can be used for free!
Various room styles are available for you and your guests!

I have been high level employee for a Fortune 200 company, in the pharmaceutical industry for 20 plus years. In that position, I attended many corporate sales meetings, executive conferences, and new product launch meetings all around the USA. In addition, I had our corporate meeting planning group reporting to me for a period of time where I was exposed to many vendors in this space across the US.
I most recently hosted a Rehearsal dinner for my son’s wedding in Emerald Isle at the Islander Hotel and Resort.
The service, the professionalism, the overall experience was second to none. I have never been so satisfied with the whole process, from walking into the faciality for the initial discussion, to paying the billing at the conclusion of a wonderful event.
Carol Mortensen who was the event manager, from the beginning to end was outstanding. Her guidance was focused, detailed and overall exceptional. Carol recommended an outside caterer “Class Act Catering”, which was just as awesome. The food was exceptional, as well as the bartenders who served the rehearsal dinner for 75 people were just wonderful. My wife and I received so many compliments about the food, the bar, the service and the facilities.
I would highly recommend this venue to anyone. If this review seems a little over the top! Well it is, and so was the service!
