Great experience

I have mencioned about this hotel to many of my friends, encouraging them to stay in it when visiting Punta Cana. It is a peaceful retreat from the former paper mill that the hotel used to be. Everything is first class, from the beautiful pools, wonderful restaurants and amazing beaches.

Great family trip, worth the money

We have been to DR many times and this was the best and friendliest hotel. After changing rooms because of the smell of mildew, we were upgraded. The only complaint I had, (and the only reason I'm writing about this is hopefully this will help someone), was that after a storm tons of seaweed washed up. Although there was someone trying to clean it up, it was just too much. If you became in direct contact with it, you would get seaweed lice. Many people in the hotel had it. I know the hotel cannot help mother nature but a full staff should have been there to clean it up and everyone should have been told not to go near it or in the water.

HUGH HOTEL

The only disadvantage to this hotel is that it is so large - I was told 3,800 rooms. Our first impression was negative because we had to take a shuttle cart from the main lobby check in to our location even without bags, it was too far to walk. Likewise, we had to take a bus or cart to go back and forth to the evening shows which was very annoying and for many rooms a shuttle to the beach was also required. Given all that, they did manage the crowds well with limited waiting in line. We stayed at the Esmeralda section which was happily close to the beach. The beach was crowded but there are plenty of chairs although you have to get there very early to get close to the water. The food was as expected with many different buffets but all seemed to have the same food. We tried a couple of the a la cart restaurants which varied a lot - some really good and some just so so. You will need to book restaurant reservations very early in your stay - we tried on the first night of our 7 day vacation and most were either booked up for the week or only available very late i.e. after 8:30. Not until the last day did we find the adults only area which was much quieter on the beach. The beach itself was very nice but you should expect it to be cluttered with sea weed. Although the staff was constantly working to clean it up, they could probably have done a better job since seeing all of the plastic bags filled with sea weed and tractors going up and down the beach was not very attractive. Overall, a very pretty location but net time I will look for something smaller in size and less crowded even if I give up some of the options.

Great Family Trip

It was Valentines Day that we arrived to Punta Cana, and it was beautiful hotel, great staff. Beach and the view was amazing. Make sure you make the trip on the boat with scuba diving and different island, it was amazing. Soo many great and positive memories. Food was actually surprisingly good, people were very friendly and very helpful. Rooms were cleaned daily. I mean overall the the experience was amazing, the only problem we had the whole trip was that my parents room had a broken AC but we managed to have a good time anyway! Thanks to everyone for making this trip wonderful!!!!

Make sure to discover the WHOLE hotel, because we only stood in our part, but there is solo much more to it, and plus shuttle bus drives all over and can take you place to place!!!

Wouldn't recommend

This hotel did not meet my expectations. Upon arrival the front desk staff was not pleasant. Our first room had toenail clippings on the floor. When we asked for a new room, the said they had non available, until I asked to speak with the manager. We eventually got into a new cleaner room. The food was not good. It was the same meal each night.

Beautiful location

The ocean was amazing as was the room. The grounds were beautiful as well and not a very long walk from the ocean to any part of the Esmeralda resort. Staff was friendly and attentive. I've been to other all inclusive resorts and I will say that you don't do to an all inclusive expecting amazing food, just edible but the food here was poor. I enjoy a few restaurants but the buffet was pretty bad. Worse, my boyfriend and I had stomach problems our last day (thank god it wasn't the first!) and I imagine that's from the food. While the rooms were big, clean and beautiful, we also slept only ok, maybe it was the mattress.
