We spent a week at the Bahia Principe Esmeralda in the Dominican Republic at the beginning of December!!! We have visited there before, but we wanted to go back because we KNOW it is a great place to stay, AND it was!!!!! On arrival, we were given drinks to cool down and ....first class service all the time, great food, and we were able to book as many a la carte restaurants as we wanted, part of the Esmeralda benefits - our favorite restaurant on the property is the Don Pablo at the Ambar hotel, best steak we have eaten in a long time, so good, we went there twice!!!.....gorgeous hotel, very clean, large rooms always kept neat and tidy, plenty of towels, many chaise lounges on the beach,even bar service......the ocean was turquoise and clean, and the sand felt good between our toes!!!!! The employees were always so polite and attentive, and made us feel very welcome....we always like to go to the Bahia Principe hotels because they give us excellent service, there are no horrible surprises, and everything is as advertised....In Punta Cana, there are 4 hotels on the Bahia Principe property, so there is never a lack of food, entertainment and activities, but, at the same time, we never feel that there are actually 1000's of people staying there...the gardens are immaculately kept, and there is always transportation on site to get you around the vast property.We visited the small casino, and the market place, but spent most of our time on the beach..We thoroughly recommend this hotel, and all the other B.P.s we have visited.Thank you
