Had a wonderful time, travelling with a group of eight. Staff was especially attentive, helping to celebrate our birthdays and making sure we had cake, banner, and shots. Beach, pool, room all great. Weather was perfect, didn't see a mosquito. Would like to go back. Thanks, Esmeralda!

we asked for adjoining rooms with our two adults kids but when we arrived we were on different floors. They could not do anything that day but moved my children next door to us the next day. rooms were lovely, quiet, comfortable very clean. fridge was stocked each day with soft drinks and small bottle of run, whiskey and vodka. spent most of the time on the beach as the pool was too warm. We went into the Bavaro pool in the afternoon as it was cooler and more activity going on. Easy to get chairs on the beach. Bar service everywhere including the beach. Water sports were free. Staff very friendly and food was good. We will go back for our 3rd time this November.

Great Vacation, Great Resort! We will be back!

We stayed one week in April at the adults only Esmeralda. There's been a lot of talk about not being able to find a chair on the beach. We didn't seem to have much of a problem with that unless we waited until noon. Even then, there were still chairs available, may not the best sites but not a problem. We found the resort to be exceptionally clean. Looking at the other resorts on our beach walk, we thought ours was by far the most appealing and clean. They ran out of washcloths the second day. Not sure why... the maid didn't speak English. She did try to apologize. The food was abundant on the buffets. We found it to be good. I'm always up for trying what the locals eat so we appreciated the beachside prep area just outside buffet where they made a Dominican rice and shrimp in a large skillet served picnic style at lunchtime. We had a room on upper floor overlooking the pool. I thought it might be noisy but the pool closes early enough and there was no noise problem at all. We slept great. Like others mentioned, just ask for a pillow of your liking and we had lavender aromatherapy added to them and the room. You do need to ask every day for the aromatherapy, they won't just automatically do it. We gave our butler a generous tip at the beginning of the week and she made sure to have the drink of our choice available in the room fridge. The coffee is truly amazing. We couldn't get enough at breakfast. Others at the resort said room service was not worth the wait. We didn't use it as we were close to two buffets and we just used our balcony for morning coffee which we made in our room. The only reason I didn't give the resort a five star rating is because the service seemed to be inconsistent despite tipping. Some of the staff will bend over backwards to make sure you have anything you need and others not so much. One morning there were three staff standing around talking with each other and we kept having to get there attention to get more coffee. That seemed to be the case throughout the week. We also found that we had to get our own drinks at the pool and the beach most of the time. The on grounds transportation was always prompt and available whenever we needed it. We went to the on grounds shopping area and found you can negotiate prices at some of the shops. I paid twice as much for some jewelry we saw on our expedition the day later. We took the Outback Adventures tour and it was fabulous. This is where you'll want to buy coffee, coconut oil, cigars, cocoa, jewelry or homemade chachkies. Worth the money to take this tour. Overall we had a great time. WiFi was spotty. No problem with smokers.

Let me start by saying that this was our 9th time at the Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda and can't wait for the next time. The Hotel is amazing the service is all you can ask from in a Luxury Vacation, the staff goes out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. I need to list some of the special people who made our vacation unforgettable. Front Desk: Oscar Entertainment Team: Sexy Chocolate, Danny Boy, DJ Junior and of course the Manager- Luis Gonzalez. Butler - Nori Cleaning Staff- America I would like to thank them all for taking such good care of us, they truly go out of their way to make you want to return to this hotel. Hope to see them all soon.
