This is the one resort I always stay at when I am in Punta Cana. The rooms are new, clean and spacious.One issue we ran in to was the front desk. They are not efficient with requests. We had to ask a few times for a new tv remote to be sent up, we never got it. One department that...

We just returned from a family vacation of 6 (Ages ranging from mid 30s to 60) Upon arrival we were greeted with a friendly smile, cold drink and a cold cloth. We arrived before 3:00 check in, which meant that we could not check into our rooms, we were told the usual, go to the buffet and relax with a...

Difficult to rate this resort and no surprises that reviews tend to vary so much.....It will all depend on your past experiences in the Caribbean and whether you enjoy loud music and hordes of people. The Luxury Bahia Principle is an enormous resort - The Esmeralda is an adult only hotel, one of 7 in the resort. Whilst adult only...

We had a wonderful time at the resort. Everything is lovely, especially the grounds which are kept immaculate. The staff are very friendly and seem to enjoy their work. Housekeeping was very good, especially Jessica. I cannot mention everyone or thank everyone individually but I wish to mention how wonderful our "butler" Meldy was to us. He ensured we had...

My boyfriend and I are not huge critics because in the end you can't let little things ruin your vacation. However, I was pretty disappointed with the general service we received at the restaurants. During our stay we were definitely one of the younger couples and maybe we were ignored because staff didn't think we would tip as well as...

I love 98% of this place. The Esmeralda section has an amazing vibe to it and it is beautiful. It is a large resort but you still feel part of a smaller place where they know you. The staff is amazing and the "Animación" team is like no other. They are high energy but don't hound you if you don't...

We had a great time at this resort. Rooms were very clean and never had any issues with the housekeeping. Beach was beautiful and you could walk several miles in each direction. Not really much for snorkeling in front of resort but there were excursions available. We tried three a la carte restaurants and they were great, I would recommend...

We stayed at Esmeralda from March 4-11/17. We do not get much opportunity to travel and this was our first trip ever to the Caribbean or to an all-inclusive resort. I would have to say it was about as perfect a vacation as I could ever have hoped for. I had read a lot of reviews (I was a little...

Great Room, very clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Butler service wasn't great but everything else was good. The only negative is that everyone saves chairs with towels and so there are never any available. Not a good practice.
