Great Place to Stay

Villa was really clean and fresh. Room opens up to the pool which was also awesome - just wish it would have had steps down instead of entry by ladder. Breakfast was good - can order eggs for a cost - about $7 US. The beach was a little trek but have chairs down there and provide towels. The water was so beautiful - the best colors I've seen so far. Lots of restaurants that you can walk to. Also two small groceries were convenient. For any fast, cheaper food there is a pizza place that was very tasty. They do have a bus service but we didn't use it - didn't seem like the easiest from what was explained. Taxi to get here and back to the airport was $40 each way. Service was excellent at the resort and down at the beach. This area was hit hard by the hurricane and is still recovering but it wasn't a problem. The beach was lovely and about 1 mile long - great to walk.

Couldn't have been happier with the resort.

We were very satisfied with Cheap Caribbean. Everything went smoothly. All flight and resort reservations were just as promised. The resort was very nice with only minimal evidence of the hurricane damage. The building our room was in had no evidence of any damage. There are still many areas of the island that have severe damage but the area we were in had many restaurant choices with exceptional food. I would highly recommend Esmeralda Resort and Cheap Caribbean.

Nice get away!

We had a very romantic winter get away at Esmeralda. Love the layout of the room and resort. Close to the beach and nice to have a pool nearby. Very clean. A bit sad to see how much damage the island experienced from the hurricane, but rest assured this resort is very much up and running!

Wonderful experience

We learned so much with this awesome experience. The island and its people continue to recover from the hurricane of nine months ago. The issues we experienced are issued that will be reclaimed as the wonderful people continue to rebuild their facility. Highly recommend the trip.

Hotel Description

Esmeralda Resort: Prime Location on Orient Bay

Esmeralda Resort features luxurious, villa-style accommodations with the personalized service and atmosphere of a private club. Rooms are spread out within villas, each with its own private pool. You'll fall in love with the graceful, open-air, colonial-style architecture in a coconut grove setting.

If you're ready for some action, luckily for you, Esmeralda Resort is located right on Orient Beach, stretching up the hill and overlooking Orient Bay. In addition to the lovely resort grounds and a spectacular beach, you're only a few steps away from all the watersports you can think of. Windsurfing, sailing trips, snorkeling, scuba diving, deep sea fishing and more can all be arranged for an additional charge.

When you've worked up an appetite, you can dine poolside at The Astrolabe, which features local specialties and fine French cuisine. If you'd rather venture out onto the beach for some great food, you can dine on 5 different Orient Beach restaurants - Bikini, Kontiki, Kakao, Waikiki and La Playa - and have them charge it directly to your room with a personalized customer card provided by Esmeralda.
