I thought the place was gorgeous, the staff is amazing and friendly, rooms are very clean, food is okay and always fresh, although you will get sick of it after a while.
We picked the "Esmeralda" resort, because we were looking for more quick, relaxing vacation, and that it was. The Esmeralda resort is more family/couple friendly, if you want more of the younger crowd Punta Cana would be the place. However few other reasons why we decided to stay at Esmeralda was because it had it's own private beach only Esmeralda guests are allowed to stay there, also you are able to have book a la carte (restaurants) for every evening. You are also able to go to Punta Cana buffet and eat there. It is a step up from Punta Cana resort. It is a bit pricier however if you like the extras it is definitely worth it.
The staff was great they were very accommodating and friendly, they always seem to go out of their way to make your stay there unforgettable. Ramon Diaz was fantastic, if you have a special request he is the guy to talk to. The front desk Andy and Esteban were very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were always clean which was nice, always fresh towels.
The weather was great it only rained once and for few hours, and we went mid-September which is their hurricane season. I had a good experience and would definitely recommend this place as a more of quit, relaxing vacation.
