Overview

The BlueBay Group's Mayan Riviera resort, the Blue Bay Grand Esmeralda, gives you the chance to base yourself in a Mexican Caribbean paradise, framed by Mayan-style thatched roofs, with decorative wood carvings accenting the rooms. Impossibly blue water flows up to meet rugged inlets and white sand beaches directly in front of the Blue Bay Grand and you can spend your days comparing it to the beautifully clear water of the oceanfront pool, or opt for the more active approach and try horse-riding, archery or kayaking. Dine in peace on traditional Mexican pozole at Don Isi restaurant while the little ones have all their video-gaming and playground needs taken care of at the Kids Club.

Hints and tips

If you have a day to spare, take a trip out to one of the Riviera's islands, such as Cozumel, off the coast of Playa del Carmen. One of the best snorkelling destinations in the Caribbean, the island is also home to ancient Mayan ruins of San Gervasio, and the colonial architecture of San Miguel, the island capital.

Nearby attractions

Neighborhood

The luxury, all-inclusive Blue Bay Grand Esmeralda is located eight miles north of the town of Playa del Carmen on the Riviera Maya coast of Mexico. Drive a few minutes north of the resort to Tres Rios Ecopark to see first-hand the lush mangroves, sink-hole caves and untouched coastline characteristic of the Riviera Maya, and when the sun sets, head down to Playa del Carmen to sample the Latino-infused sounds of hotspots like Mambo Cafe.

BITTERLY DISAPPOINTED

Would not recommend Thu, Jul 2, 2015
ROOM HAD ROACHES AND WHEN BROUGHT TO THEIR ATTENTION, WAS TOLD WHAT DO YOU EXPECT, YOU'RE IN A JUNGLE. ASKED FOR EXTRA TOWELS TO COVER THE DAMP/SLIPPERY FLOOR AND WAS TOLD WE THERE WAS A LIMIT OF (2) MORE BECAUSE OTHER ROOMS NEEDED TOWELS AS WELL. DIRTY BREAKFAST DISH REMAINED ON THE DRESSER AFTER HOUSEKEEPING SERVICED ROOM. HAD TO PAY WI-FI COST FOR EACH ADD'L DEVICE ABOVE (1). LUNCH AND DINNER WAS BARELY EDIBLE. HAD EARLY CHECK-OUT @ 4:30AM AND GOLF CART/SHUTTLE WAS 30 MIN LATE EVEN THOUGH WE REQUESTED CART NIGHT BEFORE THEN DRIVER COULD NOT BE BOTHERED TO RETRIEVE OUR LUGGAGE FROM ROOM, HAD TO BRING TO HIM INSTEAD. VERY DISAPPOINTED ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THE AVG PRICE PER NIGHT OF $400+.

Would recommend Fri, Jun 19, 2015
We had a great time, it was our 5th time at Bluebay! They are very accomodating (we asked for a room change closer to the main pool-they changed it the next morning like they had promised). The food was outstanding!! We got to Riviera Maya twice a year, and it is the hotel with the best food. The rooms were very clean. Overall, it was a fantastic hotel!

Great place

Would recommend Fri, May 1, 2015
The grounds are nice and large but they have a cart shuttle if you don't feel like walking. Not far away is a cenote river that dumps into the sea. It is highly recommended. To get there go down to the beach and facing the ocean make a left and walk about about half a kilometer.

Great stay, we love this resort

Would recommend Mon, Apr 27, 2015
Overall Blue Bay is a great resort and service in general is great. Unfortunately a couple incidents happened when we arrived such as the front desk personnel treating in a not so politely manner. Then we had to walk carrying our luggage and kids for about a mile to our room. the rest of our stay was pleasant and had a great time.

Just an okay resort

Would not recommend Tue, Mar 3, 2015
Resort was very scenic and rooms were clean, however the food, drink and service was just ok! Our air conditioner didn't work all that great but we were able to get cooled down from the ceiling fan. When we called for roomservice 3 different times for different things it took forever for them to respond. Once it wasn't until the next day. The restaurant's you had to make reservations at had bad service and food wasn't all that good. Buffet food was much better. Don't think we would return to this resort again.
