What an awesome fortnight! We have visited DR on many occasions before but first time to the Esmerelda.
The resort is really clean, there are always maintenance men tending to the grounds, painting, cleaning with a friendly Hola as you pass.
The room was gorgeous, best we've ever stayed in, there were 3 of us and our 16 yr old son slept on the sofa bed with no bother for a fortnight.
Food was lovely, varied, and we tried most of the a la carte's while we were there.
A special thanks to Jose at Guest services, one evening I was taken ill at El Pescador and left my handbag with my camera inside over the chair, he tracked it down at Security and they brought it over to the Esmerelda, I was so relieved as I really thought I had lost the camera with all the lovely photos taken on it!
The beach is very clean although crowded and we had lovely strolls in both directions paddling in the sea. The sea was quite rough while we were there but I thought it added to the fun, jumping with the waves.
There is nothing I can say that hasn't been said before, other than we have never felt inclined to return anywhere before but we will definitely return to the beautiful Esmerelda in the future.
