My family and I stayed at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort *&Spa from August 29th to September 2nd. This is a fabulous, beautiful and luxurious hotel for anyone, and it is very accomodating to families with young children. We were greeted by a very courteous bellman, and the staffperson who checked me in was very polite and helpful. The pool area is amazing! 4 pools with a bar in the center!!!! The hotel provides free swim diapers for all children 3 and under, iced water stations and waitressing staff that will take your order and promptly bring your food back to you. Everyone was extremely nice to us, and the pool area was kept very clean by the staff. The hotel provides sand toys in the beachy area near the shallow end at one of the pools. There were dive in movies almost every night for the kids (One night we watched Shrek 3), and fun activities for the kids as well during the day (one afternoon there was bubbletime, another afternoon there was a hula hoop contest). The outside patio area has tons of comfy lounge couches and several firepits if you want to hang out there and chat and have a drink at night. On Saturday night they had a great guitar player performing outside also.
I read some mixed reviews from other hotel visitors - and I have to say that we had a very clean, updated and beautiful room, and no problem getting towels or a seat at the pool area when we went there. Our air conditioning unit in our hotel room was at 67 degrees and that was fine with us. There were a lot of families with kids during the weekend part of our stay, but that was totally fine with us as we have kids ourselves. However, I did see a few people who might not have realized that this was a kid friendly hotel looking a little shocked at all of the kids in the pool. (They seemed to be all couples who had no kids with them). It cleared out pretty much by Sunday afternoon though and it was pretty quiet at the hotel for the rest of our stay.
I just really enjoyed being at this hotel because it was absolutely beautiful and luxurious, and I felt welcome to come there with my chilren. It's hard nowadays to find somewhere that makes you feel comfortable in a fancy place when you walk in with young children. I have told all of my friends and family about this hotel, strongly recommending it to anyone I know!!!! We'll definitely be going back next summer to stay here!
