Our family had not done an all- inclusive vacation and the last time my wife and I had gone on an all-inclusive was over 10 years ago. After spending a week at Esmeralda, our thought is: what took us so long?! From the moment we arrived for check-in process (we were seated and sipping cocktails - no check-in lines!), we knew we were in a for a great stay. Everything was perfect from the rooms, grounds and pools to the restaurants, and most importantly the beach. Everything was spotless and clean, including the beach. Food at the buffets was excellent with a lot of choices; we actually preferred the buffets to the à-la-carte restaurants. All three meals were excellent and were very happy with the food and the service all-around. In particular, Osvaldy who worked the breakfast and supper shifts at the outdoor terrace at the buffet was awesome! Very warm greeting every morning when he saw us arrive for breakfast. He was fantastic - on our last night, he even got the band and the staff to come sing Happy Birthday (and a couple of other songs) for my daughter who was turning 10. A very special moment for our family as they serenaded our daughter - big thanks to Osvaldy. All the staff was pleasant, and very hard-working. The pools, although I am a beach person who needs to be dragged there by my family, were fun with a great atmosphere. The beach was also beautiful with plenty of huts for shade, beach chairs for everyone, blue water, nice sand, and as I mentioned, NO litter. I am certain my famliy will return there as this was a near-perfect place for a family vacation.
