This is a very nice resort. Everything was clean, landscaping was beautiful, employees were over the top friendly and helpful. Over all a very good bang for your buck. The only negatives were the high density of guests, although this is what keeps the prices down. If you don't like crowds try to eat in non peak times. It helps... More

We stayed at Esmeralda from December 13th to the 20th. My Wife and I went with our three kids, 17, 20, and 22 as well as two of their girlfriends. We stayed in building 92. Overall we were all happy with the resort, but not with Privilege Club. If you are not a member of the Privilege Club, I highly... More

Fantastic resort! I just spent 10 unforgettable days at the Esmeralda, and can’t wait to return. It was my second time at this resort and it seems to only get better. The resort is comprised of 5 properties, hence, very expansive. Fortunately, staying at the Esmeralda or Ambar, entitles us to the amenities of all 5 resorts. They offer trams... More

First of all I am glad I spent time to read many reviews before selecting a resort, it pays off. You sent a room request and we got what we requested, stayed in Villa 91 top floor, facing the pool, beautiful view of pool and beach. From the begging we were recognized at repeat customers (we went to GBP Punta-Cana... More

Just came back from the vacation as two families with kids, stayed from Dec 13-20. Probably one of the best vacations we ever had. Hotel: very convenient location not too far from airport, medium size territory so all places you need are within a short walking distance. Lots of shuttle carts on premises so no issues moving around. Rooms: we... More

Our family came back after our last stay in 2012. This resort is nothing short of amazing for the price we paid. The employees are allways eager to help and most have a good communication skill in English. Both the buffets and specialty resteraunts were good with one exception. Allways inspect the rarity of the meat you are about to... More
