Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda

My family and I visited Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda in July. Check in was a breeze. I asked to change the location of my villa and they were very accommodating. The grounds were beautiful, the food was good a tad bit salty but good. Our rooms were cleaned twice a day ave safety was not an issue for us. We felt safe everywhere we went. I have to give the people of Dominican Republic a round of applause. They were so kind and friendly. They try their very best to accommodate you. Adonis was always looking out for us. He knew our exact drinks of what we wanted as soon as we sit down to eat. He is the best!! Hector was great as well. The entertainers, Juan and Angel were awesome, they really kept us entertained. Thank you to all the staff at Esmeralda who made our stay enjoyable!!

Wonderful family holiday

Just returned for 2 lovely weeks at the Esmeralda. Once again the staff were amazing and made the holiday (especially Jesus the chef in the beach restaurant who cooked us fresh chicken for lunch every day). The rooms are good, the restaurants are good (especially the Brazilian in Esmeralda and the Portifino in Amber), the pools are lovely (can still get a sunbed up to about 9am), the beach is beautiful...need I go on?!
There were a few things that have changed since we came last year and not for the better. We really missed the beach restaurant opening for breakfast and also the bbq at the pool restaurant. We also had no wifi in our room, but it did work in our daughters adjoining room..we did note this to reception but it didnt get sorted.
We also loved the activities in the pool, especially the inflatables and the paddle board yoga!
Had a wonderful holiday but just wasnt as good as last year!

First time in the Dominican Republic ????????

Been here for 11 nights!. The hotel staff are amazing they just go upon and beyond. We’ve dealt with a few members of staff on daily occurrences and they really make your day start with a bang! Some of the people I’d like to give a big shout out to are;

Pedro- breakfast waiter
Grizel - Beach waitress
Ruth and Medley our butlers
Jaylin- quiet pool waitress
Raquel- lobby waitress

We tip when we thought it was deserved and these definitely deserved it!

The beach was lovely and clean and enjoyed a few days there!

The buffet restaurants were ok, always something nice to eat.

Two of my favourite restaurants were Arricife and Takara.

We had daily ice given for our room and our maid always made sure out mini fridge was stocked up well.

Thanks for a great time and see you soon!
