Great all inclusive!

Chose this allinclusive from cheapcaribbean traveling with 4 other adults and was unexpectedly placed in two rooms (requested) which were adjoined (not expecting), so that was nice. Was immediately greeted at the checkin counter with a cool cloth and pina colada, nice touch. Everyone was hungry at that time, 4pm, and unfortunately there aren't any buffets or restaurants open for food between 330-6 so we ate at the "snack bar" area at one of the restaurants. Food: the best food is served at the restaurants which need reservations, absolutely make these in advance. I'm not a picky eater but did not like the food at the two buffets at the esmerelda. Pool: water was clean, chairs seemed to be claimed early in the am Beach: esmerelda was very close walk (seconds) to the beach. Beach has chairs and umbrellas setup. Waiters take orders for drinks. Literally paradise. Never had a problem finding chairs. Drinks: top shelf liquor and el Principe beer on draft Rooms: bathroom had jet tub and standup shower with toilet in separated stall. Very clean. Housekeeping did a great job. No elevators in this resort and 2-3 levels high. Mini fridge stocked with waters, sodas and snacks, included in all inclusive and restocked once daily Entertainment: we bought an excursion through the resort which ended up being cheaper than if bought anywhere else. Had nightly entertainment by the pool (Michael Jackson impersonator, jazz music etc) Would absolutely go back to this resort!

Excellent

Everything was nice . The people, foods, pools and the beach. The nature was amazing. Everywhere was green and blu . It was a big resort in 4 or 5 small ones. I was in Bahia Esmeralda. It was near to the beach . We enjoyed every single day there . I have been on vacation in so many places especially in Europe it was first time in Punta Cana but not last for sure. Next year we are going to take our doghouses with us. Thank you for making it amazing for us .

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive & all-Dominican dreamy.

The butler service and pillow menu (upon request) & hydro massage shower in the rooms.

Feeling all royal under the massage gazebos & in the VIP cabin with private Jacuzzi.

The delicious Ayurveda treatments at the spa. Swoon-worthy.

 

What We'd Change

The language barrier can be tough and while the staff is very helpful, you may need a small dictionary to help you communicate.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 30 minutes from the Punta Cana airport - a short, sweet ride to paradise.

The PADI dive center is located on the beach.

On May 1, 2017, the hotel will become a hotel for families.

Trolleys take you to your room, if you don't want to walk.
