I have recently vacationed at Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda. This is my sixth time visiting this exquisite hotel. Luxury Esmeralda really stands up to its name. The friendly cheerful staff are dedicated to their work. They go out of their way to embrace you with luxury and comfort. Esmeralda is a family hotel. In the past two years it has grown. The quality of service has grown as well. It is most outstanding.
The butler service is amazing! Ramon Diaz meets guests needs with pleasure. He is the supervising butler and is the person you would want to look for to assist you with your need. Ramon ensures his butler staff is most attentive to the guests. From romantic candles, champagne, bubble baths, and scented pillows, the butler staff offers even more luxuries to make your stay most memorable. I personally experienced such luxury and would like to extend a special thank you to Ramon for assigning your best staff to shower me with luxury every day. Their smiles, friendliness, and desire to work reflect your excellent standards. Your butler service is professional and certainly exceeds a five star rating. Thank you so much. All is greatly appreciated.
Milfi and Victor ,thank you for the daily deliveries of scented pillows. It was a pleasure to have fresh scents each day. A grand thank you to Marihilenny and Dhaira for spending your valuable time each day getting me prepared for evening dinners. Your love and laughter is greatly appreciated. You left me with lasting memories. Thanks!
The porter and bell service is also available to guests. Nicanor is always happy and anxious to assist with luggage delivery as well as organize trolley service for guests to meet their dining reservations. Thank you Nicanor for your smiles, friendship and spectacular porter service. You were always sure to have me where I needed to be on time.
The Bahia Principe has five hotels within its complex. It is quite a large resort. Guests may walk throughout it but it will consume time. Trolley service is offered day and night to get around quicker.
There are many a la carte restaurants for your dining pleasure throughout the entire complex. A live stage theatre hosts different shows each night for all ages. Great entertainment! A disco and karaoke are open later in the evening as well. Quaint boutique shops are open day and evenings for shopping pleasure.
Each hotel has its own variety of entertainment. Esmeralda offers piano music, a vocalist singer, a saxophone player, and a D.J. night hosting merengue and bachata music. Staff dance instructors are available to teach guests the dance steps. Loads of fun for all ages. A white beach party has been added to the entertainment schedule. Guests attending wear all white to this party. No cost involved. Guarantee fun music and dance on the beach. The stretch of white sand and soothing salt ocean water is a pleasure to behold. There are various water sports offered to enjoy in the water and events on the beach. Beach volleyball is a favourite.
Esmeralda has two fresh water pools and events are scheduled in the afternoons for all ages. Always lots going on and fun. An outstanding luxury offered by the staff is drinks and fruits served to guests by the poolside and at the beach at various times in the day.
If you need a full relaxation experience Esmeralda has its own Bahia spa. The professional massage therapists really treat you to an excellent massage. The hot stone massage is fantastic. The couples Jacuzzi and full body massage is great too. Very romantic.
There are three buffets in Esmeralda so line ups are not an issue. Jazmin is indoors and serves three meals every day. Los Geranios is combined indoor with two outdoor patios and serves three meals a day. Arrecife is an outdoor patio at the beach and serves lunch all afternoon. The food at any of these buffets is fantastic. There is a wide variety to choose from as well. All the food is carefully prepared and cooked to perfection. Each night is a different theme at the buffets so guests get a taste of many cuisines from different countries. The most popular is seafood gala night. Reservations have to be made due to its popularity. The dining experience in the buffets is fun. The staff are always sharing laughter with guests and really cater to children. Thank you to Algelis, Nicolas, Christian, Jorge, and Luis for your special attention, laughs ,friendliness, and excellent outstanding service. I always looked forward to entering Jazmin and seeing your bright smiles. You made my dining memorable. Thanks!
Two a la carte restaurants are located in Esmeralda. Bella Italia hosts Italian cuisine and Takara hosts Asian cuisine. Both are fine dining experiences and service is exceptional. Reservations are required for a la carte dining. The guest service desk is located in the lobby beside the lobby desk. After you check in you need to book your dining as soon as possible as there are many guests to accommodate.
The management and staff of Luxury Esmeralda are achieving their goal. They excel on ensuring guests are welcome, relaxed, pampered, and enjoying their vacation destination.
Thank you to management and staff of Luxury Esmeralda. You made my vacation once again one to remember. I am anxiously awaiting my return to Home away from Home.
