Bring your own wash cloths

Original hotel was over booked so we were given a room at the 5 star Esmeralda. Hotel was very nice however they ran out of wash cloths 2nd day there. Room was on third floor with elevators. Food was okay same stuff at every buffet. Don't drink the ice tea or water causes stomach cramps and diarrhea for days. All inclusive drinks were great. Staff was Awesome. The free shuttle was a plus to go between resorts. Beware of timeshare sales people. If you want nice gift with rum, cigar and coffee or free helicopter ride give them 1 hour of your time...gifts are nice. Room service unlimited and daily stock of room mini bar nice touch. Taxi to and from airport $40 each way. Taxi to go to San Juan shopping center $20 each way.

First Family Getaway

The staff were wonderful, friendly, and professional. We had a great time, and will come back here again. The shows were wonderful, and entertaining. The beach and the pools were clean. The food was excellent, many choices to choose from.

Beautiful resort

The resort is really fantastic. Its really like small town so be ready for lots of walking and using wagon bus. The beach is pretty also swimming pools are very nice and clean. You have plenty of options as far as food choices and there is always stg open. We also like the service people are friendly and response to every request. But be ready that not everybody speaks english what creates sometimes problems. Overall the resort offers lots to do and definitely is what they advertise and for my family was more than we expected.
