Beautiful beach

We loved the resort overall. Exception one hour wait time for check in. Room was located in building adjacent to construction site. It appears that cheapcarribean customers are treated differently. This was our second time. First time we were in the Ambar/adults only section. Room was not ready first night; we had to stay elsewhere. Rooms are dated, especially TV and furniture. Beach is great but busy. Unsure where all the new guests should go upon completion of construction. Lunch was ok with little variety. Liquor options are good but not top shelf. Staff is friendly but clearly working for tips. Again, overall good value for money. Punta Cana beach is great.

We had a party of ten that went on vacation together. Trying to find something for six adults and 4 teenagers to agree on doing would seem challenging, but with the many options for excursions there was no disagreeing. We had the time of our lives. Boats, snorkeling, kayaking, dune buggy, you name it, we did it. Never a dull moment. The hotel staff was amazing. Kind and courteous to everyone in our party. Our room was impeccably clean and always tidy by the time we got in from all activities. A beautiful paradise no matter where you looked. Beaches and pools and food and fun...what more could you ask for? :)

Waste

The food is horrible, very few people speaks English including the workers and the bed is hard! All they play is Mexican and Spanish music. Very limited mix drink menu Pros The place is spotless and very well kept!

June Vacation

We very much enjoyed our stay in Punt Canna. The resort was beautiful, the people were friendly and the amenities were great. Our room was clean and comfortable. We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary, and our butler decorated our room and brought a beautiful and delicious cake on our last evening. The scented pillows brought fresh each evening were a nice touch. The beach was beautiful, plenty of chairs with shaded huts. There were beach activities throughout the day and easy access to rental equipment that did not interfere with those who wished to swim. We spent most of our time at the beach. The pool was too warm for my taste, and it was clean and also had fun activities like underwater spinning and a DJ. If we waited too long to exchange our beach towels, they ran out of fresh towels at about 6PM each evening, we just exchanged in the morning, but it would have been great if they had more. Many folks complain that the drink cups are small, so you may want to bring your own, we did not have a problem with the sizes. The housekeeping was hit or miss, the room was always clean, and some things were not restocked and when we called the items were brought up quickly. We were there for four days and ate most meals at the buffet. We found the food at the buffet to be well prepared and that there were a few items that were constant, the menu changed every day offering nice variety. We ate one meal at the Brazilian restaurant by the beach and the food and service was amazing. We also appreciated the little coffee bar that was set up for most of the day in the lobby. While tips are included we brought American cash and exchanged for small bills at the front desk to tip our servers and that was appreciated.Most of the employees can help you in English. Each night there was entertainment in the common areas that was fun. Be sure to pack your sunscreen and essentials as the prices on the resort for last minute items were very high. If you take the little tram to the front of the resort the prices are much better in the little shops in the "square." The property is enormous and guests are welcome to try new restaurants or pool areas around the property which is connected by little golf cart paths with shuttles that run every five minutes. We had a great vacation and were very happy with our stay.

Hotel Description

Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda Don Pablo Collection: Meet The New Kid on the Beach.

Welcome the newest addition to the Bahia legacy, Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda; this all-inclusive dreamboat lies along the pearly shores of the Dominican Republic's famous Bavaro Beach, with the sparkling Caribbean Sea dancing under swaying palms.

Sink your toes into the velveteen sands of Playa Bavaro as you breeze by the beach bar to pick up a tropical beverage en route to one of Bahia Spa's massage gazebos. Or, order a fluorescent, umbrella-decked drink from the swim-up bar in one of the two glittering, lake-style pools while the kiddos splash in the nearby children's pool. Once you have cooled off, heat things up in the Jacuzzi before sprawling on a lounger to achieve the perfect shade of bronze amidst the lush gardens.

Indulge with your all inclusive package at Arrecife Restaurant, or treat your taste buds to an innovative Italian meal at Bella Italia. Then, take in a show at the resort's amphitheater or move the party to the nearby Congas Bachata, where the disco keeps a late-night groove going.

In the warm, sunny hours, stroll the quaint streets surrounding Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda and explore the private Pueblo Principe Shopping Center, a perfect place to stock up on souvenirs, gifts and island trends. Grab a refreshment at one of the many bars or experience the blinging and dinging of the casino.

Make your way down to the beachside aquatic activity and sub-aqua center for family fun, with windsurfing, water skiing or skimming over the waters via catamaran. The youngsters have plenty of options for fun of their own at the Kids Club, with activities like the beach-side Mini-Olympics, football, tennis, volleyball and even muscle-building classes. Or let the kids aerobicize the day away in the cool ocean breeze, learn how to merengue or putt-putt around the mini golf course while you and your sweetie hit the big fairways at nearby 18-hole Punta Blanca Golf Club (one of three outstanding courses in the area), squeeze in a tennis match or spend the day getting Ayurveda treatments at Bahia Spa.
