We stayed at the Esmeralda Jan 4 to Jan 11th 2017. We had originally booked at the Principe however upon arrival were told they were overbooked so were being moved to Esmeralda. This was considered an upgrade however we were travelling with family members and were told we were not able to go to their buffets with them for family...

Thank you to all of the staff at the Esmeralda for making our vacation so great! We just returned home from a 7 day all-inclusive vacation. We booked our holiday, last minute through RedTag. I would recommend paying a little more to stay at the Esmeralda because you have access to all Bahia's in the cluster (5 or 6). We...

Buffet, bars, butler service under Ramon and Don Pablo Collection restaurants always have a way of exceeding your expectations. My two nephews loved the experience while my brother and i were repeating customers. Bars serve premium liquor, nightly entertainment and ambience is very family oriented. Note: repeat customers should know that Esmeralda will become adult only, since the newly-built Fantasia...

Very saddened by the lack of service a "luxury hotel" would offer. This hotel is great if all you want is the 7 à la carte restaurants however if you are looking for service, you are best to save your money and stay at one of the lower ended resorts. I honestly believe they do not know what "luxury" is.

This is our third visit to a Luxury Bahia Principe all-inclusive resort; we stayed at the Ambar location 9 years ago. The Esmeralda is also an adults only resort located near the beach.
