Just returned from a 10-day vacation at Esmeralda with my wife. We had a fantastic time. The resort is relatively new and is in beautiful condition. The grounds are beautiful with palm trees and plants, all beautifully taken care of. The two pools are clean and well maintained - one is busier and louder, the other more quiet. There is... More

She immediately made herself available to escort us to our suites and leave her contact info in case we needed anything. She was warm and conversational and made note of our... More

Very nice hotel, close to the beach. Entertainment: There is a new hotel (Bahia Fantasia) right next to Esmeralda which has an awesome waterpark. I would recommend go to the bar at Bahia Fantasia as well (Bar at Esmeralda is a bit crowdy and I found barmen way more friendly and hardworking in Fantasia rather than in Esmeralda). Food: If...

For my birthday we spent 11days in Bahia Principe Esmeralda. The stand out feature for us that made the trip generally and particularly my birthday special was the service. On the beach we were looked after amazingly by Wildly and in our room the hospitality provided by the butler service, specifically Edward, was fantastic!

The adults only part of the resort is a scheme. The beach is shared by families from all the resorts, and restarts are full of kids in each of the 5 resorts. They served fake liquor in every bar, meaning t was locally produced spirits such as vodka, whiskey, tequila, and rum, all made to the poorest standard of quality.... More
