We have recently returned from an amazing two weeks at the Esmeralda, great food, drinks, spotless hotel and beautiful beach. Although I wouldn't have changed getting married in the Domician Republic we felt some of the wedding package we paid for was misleading. Firstly, don't be fooled by the beach wedding pictures advertised when in reality the location is in...

Hit.... The grounds off the complex are immaculate and provide plenty of walks. The numerous blocks of rooms are well separated and not directly overlooked. Rooms are spacious, good size balcony, comfy bed/pillows and changed regularly. Bathroom good with walk-in shower and Jacuzzi bath. Buffet restaurant did provide some good meals (some nights) and the Takara Asian restaurant is a...

Our stay at this hotel was truly great. I booked this trip for my mother's birthday. This resort was just perfect. Staff were extremely friendly and courteous. The room was large and very clean. Mini bar was restocked daily w plenty of drinks, alcohol and mini snacks. Each room has a room assistant (butler service) should you need anything extra....

Absolutely loved this resort. First and foremost it is absolutely beautiful and very very safe. They have security that monitors everyone coming and going. The grounds are gorgeous and well kept. The resort has 6 Separate places and this is the one closest/on the beach. By the way, we walked up and down the beach, 45 minutes either way and...

It's our first time at Punta Cana and we just had an amazing time at this resort. It is a huge complex and we're glad we stayed at the Esmeralda which is closest to the beach. Even though the place is big, there is a shuttle service that runs all the time to take people at different points. The grounds...

This resort was awesome. We have been to Punta Cana at least 6-7 times. Each time, we have chosen a different property. We would return to the Esmeralda if they continue to keep it an adults only resort. Esmeralda is one of 6 different resorts all in one under the name Gran Bahia Principe. Combined, they are a huge property,...
