Travel with celiac

We had a good time! Very warm, bring sunscreen! Ate at restaurants every night and food was very good! We have been to many all inclusive as in Mexico and thought the food was better here. We stayed a week and were in villa 90 close to the beach. We had a great butler named Edward! I have celiac disease which was a little tricky here. I handed each server a letter typed in Spanish which helped. Only suggestion have gluten free pasta available at Italian restaurants :)! Speaking Spanish here is also a plus.

Great resort and animation team

We visited the Esmeralda resort for 2 weeks and had a great time. It is a luxury resort and although the resort consists of 6 different hotels it doesn't feel massive. Personally we liked the Esmeralda and preferred this above the other parts of the hotels. Reason is that it is close to the beach and you can easily use the sea and the swimmingpool without having to change the sunbeds. We always had sunbeds on the beach where there was plenty of space to get beds with parasols so no need to wake up at 6 to put your towels on a bed like still some people tend to do. I must give complements to the staff of the hotel. From waiters and reception staff and bell boys and animation team all are super friendly and like to serve you with a smile. Really a nice experience to see people working while enjoying it to communicate with the tourist. I would like to recommend to use the bahia app to make reservations for the restaurants. The buffet restaurants are good and we never had to wait a long time before finding a nice table. They have this very well organized. Regarding tipping: although they appreciate it the staff is not expecting to get tips and you do not notice the difference in the level of service you get. We always gave tips and I want to recommend to also think about the people that are cleaning the resort and the gardeners. They are easily forgotten but are working very had to keep everything clean. Especially please think of the people that are cleaning the beach (see weeds). They are from Haiti and only earn 3usd / day. I think they deserve some extra money and attention from us tourists. Another positive note is the animation team. They are doing a great job and through the day (even when they are not on duty) they always try to start a conversation and their smile and positive attitude is helping to a positive vibe on the resort. Special thanks to " Mini- me" and Danny boy. A negative note is that the WiFi connection and speed is really poor. In the room it is Oké but on the beach and quite some areas on the resort there is no connection with a reasonable speed possible. This should change!

Parents 26th Anniversary! ❤️

A vacation I’ll never forget! I first would like to thank Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda for their hospitality and for having my parents and I to celebrate their 26th Wedding Anniversary! Edward made my parents feel so special! The room was decorated with balloons, candles, and roses! And there was a cake waiting for us with a bottle of wine. My parents and I were so surprised, we loved it! I also wanted to show love and appreciation for the Entire Animation team: Luis, Danny Boy, Daneidy (Mini Me), Yoan, Shakira, Andreina, and Luisa! They are all amazing and so talented! They each bring their own talents and personality to the team. I’ve always wanted to learn how to dance but I was always nervous. Everyone on the team made me feel comfortable to step out of my comfort zone and to have fun! They work so hard each and everyday whether it be at the beach, pool, etc. I learned so much while having a blast! You can tell they love what they do! They always put a smile on everyone’s face. The memories they have created for my parents and I will be something we will treasure forever. The week went by so fast. As the saying goes.. time flies when you’re having fun! This isn’t a goodbye, this is an until next time! Thank you again and God bless!💖❤️

Absolutely perfect!

Almost there, but to crowded.

As other people have written before almost a 5 * experience. Our butler Noris was most def 5* and was always helpful and service minded in a natural way. She really made the stay much more valued. This is kind of the problem with this place, a lot of the staff was wonderful but then a few where more interested of checking their own phones than to help the guests. If you want to be 5* everyone should be on their toes. Food and beverage was even better than we expected and the bookable restaurants was great. The beach was astounding but had some problem with seaweed which this hotel really put in an effort to solve for the guests. The only problem was that the beach was so crowded as well as the pool in the afternoon. Another thing is that I don't understand why this place has rules that they not really make sure are followed. You are not allowed to 'book' sunbeds with towels, but we ate breakfast EVERY day when it opened and all of the good sunbeds where already taken and not used until 10-11. We also found kids in the jacuzzi when staff was around. If you want to be a first class hotel you really have to make sure the rules apply to everyone other it just empty words.
