Girls Vacation

We just arrived home from the Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda. We're we spent an amazing week. This resort is truly a 5 star hotel. It was actually my second time at this resort I was there in June 2016 and I can't wait to go back. We arrived late and the front desk was very helpful. Thank you to Ramon Diaz the butler supervisor he made sure we were well taken care of he was such a pleasure to deal withHe appointment Meldy to be our butler for the week. He was so great. I've never been in a place were the Supervisor works so well with his staff and is not afraid to roll up his sleeves and out. He actually remembered our names and always asked how the aervice was and if we needed anything. They are very lucky to have such an outstanding person working for them. Guest services you have to deal with Yoleida when we arrived she printed all my restaurant reservations and she was always so helpful and kind. We ordered room service many times and the concierge Isaia was so nice I kept forgetting my room number he was so kind. He would call me just to make sure we got our order and we enjoyed the food. If you eat at the buffet make sure you get served by a Adonis he is so wonderful he remembered our drink orders every time. I forgot to mention Ambiory he will bring your luggage to your room he is such a pleasure to deal with. If your going to enjoy a drink in the main lobby make sure Charina or Yuli take care of you these girls are awesome very hard working. The entertainment is so good don't miss the Michael Jackson show I swear it was such a good show if I didn't know better id swear it was MJ himself... All and all it was my second time at this resort and I can't wait to go back. I truly felt like I was home. The people are just so amazing they truly work hard to make your vacation very memorable and they truly did!!!! If you want to have a great vacation visit this reaortYours TrulyMaria D'Angelo

Just spent an amazing week ( our 11th visit ) to the Bahia our 6th at the Esmeralda ! We traveled with our adult children and spouses to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary!! First off cannot thank Ramon Diaz enough for looking after us and making our anniversary so special ( thanks for that ) . We were impressed room request were granted , dinning reservations were granted ( picked up tickets upon arrival) . Once again impressed by the cleanliness of the resort & the tropical vibe !! Also like the fact that some of the shows now come to the Esmeralda like Michael Jackson !! The beach party was pretty nice however looking forward to Adult only . I will say we were a bit disappointed the saxophone 🎷 player wasn't part of the entertainment he was there 2015 .. and also really enjoyed boogie night .. which again we missed this trip , anyways always something to do 😊 !! As far as buffets , a la carte dinning always a good selection .. no complaints at all , also again the staff make it so enjoyable.. a big thank you to Carlos at the jasmin a new server starting out he was a delight ! Beach hardly any seaweed had a few red flag days .. guys enjoyed body surfing those days , however most days were great 👍🏾 nice touch the beach service now goes around with platters of sandwiches, soft drinks as well as the usual bar service . Rooms were clean , bar fridge stocked daily always had clean towels , face clothes great maid service .. forget our maids name however always got a smile , hug or a high five everyday ..big thanks to Ana who took care of us all ( night time service ) also Felix & Luis our butlers!! And the many bar staff Sandra , Josephine.. and many more staff who go out of there way to make our stay so enjoyable .. we will be back .. adios my friends for now 😎👍🌴We visited Oct 14 -21 Darlene & frank

Fabulous Vacation

I stayed at the Lux. BP Esmeralda with my two adult daughters from October 10-17, 2016. I read a lot of reviews before selecting a resort and this one seemed to have only a few negative ones which is why I chose it over other 5 star resorts. Everything was fantastic. The check-in was quick and the front desk staff were friendly and helpful. I requested a room change because we wanted to be on the ground floor, and my request was granted with no fuss at all. The room was beautiful with two canopied queen sized beds and a huge bathroom with a jacuzzi tub. Everything was spotlessly clean. Our cleaning lady "Luce" was terrific. She made sure we had everything we needed or wanted. We ordered room service once at 2:00 in the morning after a night out. The service was fast and friendly. The staff members in the dining rooms were friendly and efficient. We had a favourite server, Nestor, who made each of our meals special. He took great care of my daughters, and he always had a smile and a joke for us. On the beach, servers came around with plates of sandwiches and cold soft drinks. There were others who took alcoholic drink orders. The beach was beautiful and never too crowded. There were no lineups for buffets or at bars, which was a treat. I would definitely recommend this resort and can't wait to return to it.
