I am always a bit concerned about returning to a place where you really had a great vacation. How pleased was i that we did. After realising we had been before an upgrade had been applied to the booking which really added a new dimension to the location in choice of food and dining options.
The friendliness of the Dom Rep continues to grow across all aspects and the facilities and services offered at these type of holidays now exceeds value anywhere in the caribean. Having been all over this is the best value for money £ for £. These beaches are simply the best beating Barbados, Antigua, or Mexico. Go between xmas and april to avoid the humidity.

Room tip: all year round great weather but humidity high off season between Aug and xmas

We stayed here in Sept 2013. The property is very big, but they make it easy to get around with their trolley system. Also, the grounds are beautiful and very-well maintained. The rooms were spacious and clean, and the daily stocking of the mini-bar is a very nice touch. Food was pretty good, especially if you try the different specialty restaurants throughout the property, which I would recommend, as the buffet was nice, but gets old after the 2nd day. Overall, would highly recommend if you're looking for a nice, relaxing vacation. My only regret is that I didn't stay longer.

we just came back from the Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda in Punta Cana, everything was perfect, even if their was construction going on, it was hidden so well we did not even noticed. the beach, the service, the food, the rooms, it was just perfect. we are not very interested in animation or activity, this hotel is more for people who want to relax in luxury not realy for party so i would recommand it for people from 40 + years even if they so accomodate families very well.

Room tip: the complex is on the beach so every room is a good room

We stayed in room 92113.
After spending two amazing weeks at the Bahia Principe Esmeralda, it goes without saying that we was not disappointed in our stay.
The staff could not do enough for you, they were very friendly and welcoming, especially bellboy George :)
The food was outstanding, especially in the a la Carte's.
Rooms were very spacious and well maintained, the lavender pillows and chocolates were a nice little added touch as well as the decorative towels.
As for the beach it without a doubt had the WOW factor, and on the plus side the staff always made sure a drink was in hand!
Id just like to also mention how curtious, polite and helpful Darius the butler was.

I was at Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda in April 2013 with my husband, my daugter and her boyfriend; the place was clean, beautiful. People who work at the resort were friendly and very, very nice and incommoding. The employees at the Buffet Los Geranios are sooo nice and friendly like Francesco and his brother. I loved every minutes of it especially at the pool with Leondra and her partner they were the best, also Marcos where we could get our towels and plan a trip. The beach was fantastic! We loved it so much, we are going back next year.
