My boyfriend, and I had the most relaxing 5 day 4 night vacation. We absolutely loved this resort, the entire staff was extremely nice. The food and drinks were great! Our room was huge, comfortable, and clean. It was also decorated with balloons, and rose pedals. (super cute) We will be returning next year for sure! Gracias : ) More>

We travelled back to Punta Cana in November after a great couples trip in July at the Ambar. We wanted to share the beautiful beach, amazing resort and sunshine with our kids. We fell in love with the Esmeralda from the moment we checked in. It was a great vacation that lived up to our expectations. We played Volleyball on the beach everyday and did fun activities around the pool. The kids loved boogie boarding in the waves and swimming in the pools. The room was big enough for the 4 of us (2 kids 10 and 12) and the daily chips in the mini bar were a big hit (as if the food all over the resort was not enough)! The only downside of the trip was rain, it rained nearly every day and we didn't get as much sunshine as we hoped. More>

again another fab stay at the esmerlada section. traveled this time with my 2yr old son and my mother. same expectations were held. i have also stayed in this part 2 other times and 2 other in their bavaro section. beach had little to none seaweed. we had an issue with the rm. 1 king bed which we asked for 2 doubles. it was quickly changed before even entering full into the rm. many buildings on the onside are closed for renos. so we didn't get the rm we requested. understandable. my only downfall and not major is i wish their was a kids water park closer to the esmeralda section. or at least a direct train there since we are paying more to stay in this area. will return in 7 months!
