Just spent a whole week at Blue Bay Grand Esmerald. Went with two friends and had lots of fun!!! Amusement team were great and organized different activities for guests to be entertained (Uri, great guy!). Food was OK, however getting into the special restaurants was difficult as reservations were suggested to be made early morning.
Swimming pool area nice, swing bar great (Samuel bar attender the best!) and waiters were very efficient. The beach unfortunately is awful, the sea is not very clean and clear. Went to Tulum and the beach there was beautiful!
Rooms nice and sports bar although opened, was quite empty every single night. As there was only 40% occupancy (which we really appreciate for the day life not to be crowded but nightlife at the hotel was dead), we went out to Playa del Carmen every night. Coco Bongo is really worth it as a show (yo can not dance is it it really crowded) and if you want to have a blast, you should go to Pallazo and Mandala.
