I had gone to Bahia Principe Esmeralda two years ago... Rooms were amazing, the service was outstanding, food was excellent however entertainment throughout the day and evening was lacking. When we returned this year, it was a very big change (for the better) when it came to entertainment. Fransisco, Carlo, Raymond and Luis definitely made every single day very exciting...

We visited the resort from Aug 12-19. We decided to stay at this resort for our renewal of vows. There were 30 people in our group.

We are so glad & happy we stayed at the Esmeralda and not at Ambar (all adults) as we originally wanted, cause we went to visit after and it was dark the hallways, boring, and the walking to the restaurant in the evenings from lobby to dinner had a funny smell. Esmerala is the greatest. We were welcomed by Oscar...

I was traveling 8/11-8/18. Here is my perspective. I was in the esmerelda building 96(96117) which to us was a perfect spot. I was closest to the lobby, the daily buffet,Jazmine, the coffee station, and the swimming pool/beach. No need to take a tram anywhere for this property.
