A dream vacation, right from the moment we landed. Everyone we met, from the airport to the resort, was so happy and welcoming and ALWAYS smiling. Everyone we met at the resort was so kind and genuine and it immediately felt like a home away from home. The personal attention and service we received was unparalleled. Laura at the front desk gave us a wonderful welcome and even made sure to see us off on our last day. We met Victor, a resort butler, who showered us with luxuries like lavender pillows and sparkling wine. Our suite, spacious and beautiful, was made even more beautiful every day by Carmen. Nicanor came to our rescue when our room key stopped working and was always nearby with a brilliant smile, warm hello and a joke. We were excited to see everyone each day, even more excited when we hadn't seen them in a few days.
The moment we arrived at the Bahia Principe, we were blown away by its beauty. One thing that makes the Bahia such a wonderful place to stay is that whether you're at the Punta Cana, Bavaro, Ambar or Esmeralda, you have full access to all 4. We loved this - the beauty of walking the resort, the nightly activities and a wonderful selection of restaurants. We didn't get to every one this time, but loved our meals at Santa Fe and Portofino.
We saw so much of the 4 resorts but were always blissfully happy to return to the Esmeralda, which felt like a smaller, more intimate resort. It was the perfect home away from home. And SO close to the beach!
Our first time to the Dominican and to the Esmeralda, but it certainly was not our last! We're already planning on a visit next year and can't wait to see everyone again.
