Great Staff, Great beach

Stayed in swim out room 4 nights. Beach was beautiful. We did not use the hotel pools much as we had our own. Staff of Animacion was awesome: Decibon, Adelfi, Manuela, Kimberly. Maria and Juan at the bars were always great. Santiago is my new amigo. And Carlos the bellhop is awesome and fun. The resort is smaller and lends itself to knowing the staff and the guests easily. The adult area is quiet. It is steps to the beach or the pool. The good: The staff, the beach, the bars, the size The bad: the sales pitch, the lack of restaurants being open during the week (heard the mexican was great but it was never open). I didnt go for the food. The buffets were very good and no long lines at all. The three restaurants had good food but lacked variety. Wouldnt recommend for the gourmet, but it was fine for me. Can be as relaxing or as vibrant as you choose. I definitely had fun AND relaxed. Thanks again to the staff.

Average for sure

My spouse and I went to Emotions for my spouse’s birthday. I would rate this trip a 2/5 experience. The room was very humid so everything was moist. The floors felt wet, the bed felt wet, the air felt wet as well. Another complaint that I had was that not everything on the resort was all inclusive, some part of the resort was for only “gold members”, So they had access to everything. Not the people who booked a regular all-inclusive trip. Also, there weren’t a lot of dining options which I did not like. I would say the only upside was the 24 hour room service, and the beach.

Wouldn't stay again

The resort is small but it was nice as you didnt have to walk very far to get to the beach or the resorts common areas. Beach was beautiful. Water had waves which we prefered more calm water. The resort is located on a nice stretch of beach in which you can walk on. Hotel was clean. Resort staff were friendly. We had a language barrier when checking in. Was told cheap Caribbean did not submit our reservation to the hotel therefore, we could not check in and had to pay out of pocket for 1 night until we were able to contact cheap Caribbean. Hotel staff was not friendly or helpful in contacting cheap Caribbean and I had to reach a friend in the states to sort the issue out due to not being able to make any USA telephone calls on the resort. The food at the resort was horrible. Even the a la carte restaurants were not good. Food was cold and not many choices. Cuisine was very Dominican inspired. Other than this, the hotel was decent. The only reason we wouldn't stay again is due to the food.

Emotions not my first pick

Resort was just "OK". Would rate it fair. Don't get me wrong it was NOT horrible - it truly was just "average". The food was decent and no one got sick but that is all I could say. The waiter / waitress service was very good - maybe they are trying to make up for the mediocre food? When we go to an all inclusive resort (there was eight of us traveling together) - we want to be "wowed" by at least one meal and NONE of us could make that statement. Adult only pool was on the small side but at least it was close to our rooms. Beach was again "fair" but nothing to write home about and nothing stood out. The restaurant near the beach was just a snack bar with some samplings of the mediocre food. The only PLUS for me was that it was walking distance to a very nice resort golf course. Walked 18 holes with a caddie at the crack of dawn on 3 of 7 mornings and that was by far my best experience of the trip, especially the morning that I convinced my 26-year old son to take the walk and golf with me! Would NOT return to Emotions Resort and neither would any of the eight of us traveling together - sorry - just being honest!

What's to Love

This all-inclusive in Puerto Plata has 3 swimming pools, 2 Jacuzzis, and a gorgeous beachfront location.

The Wet Feet sunset dining experience by the pool or beach is SO romantic!

The kids will love the rock climbing wall and all the activities sprinkled throughout the resort.

 

What We'd Change

The ocean waves are strong at times so difficult to snorkel here, but the soothing sounds and the warm temps make it still easy for swimming.
