Bahia Principe Esmerelda

Very nice place, right on the beach. To clarify the resort layout, there is a complex of five Bahia Principe hotels here, and the Ambar and Esmerelda are the nicest and the ones that are closest to the beach. Ambar is adults only. Service is good, most are friendly. Food is good, although a notch below gourmet (to be expected). All-inclusive aspect was really nice; all restaurants are basically buffet, with very good selection. Those that are designated "a la carte" are just a la carte for main course. Drinks are included, it was nice to have bottomless wine glasses at dinner. Based on location, resort quality, and all-inclusive aspect, I was very happy I picked this one

Punta Cana KR Feb 2013

Overall very nice hotel. Great beach athough very crowded and no beach service which I can understand considering the amount people staying at all 5 Bahia hotels week of Feb 23 to March 1st. I had stayed previously at the Bahia Principe Bavaro before the Esmeralda addition and prefered the Esmeraldas. They have a bus/train service which has 3 lines... More complicated than the New York subway system but gets you where you need to be. Loved the room I was staying in - Buidling 92 first floor. Very big and comfortable. About a 3 minute walk to the beach. About a 2 minute walk to the pool and lobby.

All was good except........

Our stay was overall pretty good: beautiful beach, nice hotel, nice staff. However, 3 out of the 4 people in our party got sick on our 4 night stay. NOT GOOD. The food tasted good, but was not good in the end. Be careful of what you eat!!

Disappointing

The beach and weather were amazing which ultimately made the trip worthwhile, however the food was terrible and the drinks were sub par. I think if you knew how to work the system and only went to the better restaurants and better bars then you could make this hotel work - a B+ perhaps. But when I am on vaca I want food/drink that is better than a college dining hall, so I won't be returning to this hotel. Depends what you are looking for in a resort.

Winter getaway

This is my wife's and my 6th trip to the DR. We have done many of the popular resorts. We found the Grand Bahia Principe to be amongst the best. We stayed at the esmerelda and found the food and the service a notch or two above the others. But not significant. The food, service, stafff and grounds are superb. No complaints here. Beaches are a little crowded in January-February and if you want a seat by the pool get your towel there early. The only restaraunt that really did not hit the mark was the Tex Mex barbacue and the best was the Thursday night at the buffet..Book here with confidence...great place! Already looking at a return in Dec...

Very nice facilities

Easy to get around, convenient to the beach and pool. There was a great variety of food on the buffet although the hot food could have been hotter and the cold food was always room termperature. The room itself was well-equiped, clean and comfortable.

If you are looking to relax, and lay by the pool or beach this is the place for you. If you want more activities or entertainment you may want to try somewhere else.

Fantastic grounds and facilities, sub-par food and experience.

The actual resort itself is gorgeous and very well maintained. The beach is amazingly located and the pool areas are plentiful and very clean. It is worth the extra money to stay at Esmeralda as it is closer to the beach and has smaller, quieter pool areas. Also enjoyed the multi-cultural guests, as there was a wide variety of nationalities represented. Things that we thought could have been improved upon were the food (although there was a very wide selection, it was very sub-standard in quality), the wi-fi quality (spotty at best in the public places and even though we paid for access in the room we were unable to access it consistently). Language barrier for english only individuals is challenging to overcome. Main advice to anyone planning to go is take PLENTY of US Dollars as there is only one ATM location on the entire resort (which only dispensed pesos) and most places (including checking out at the front desk) didn't accept credit cards.
