Here's what you need to know: 1. This resort is one of several Bahia resorts that are really all different areas or parts of one giant resort. This Punta Cana collection of Bahia resorts is HUGE. There are literally thousands of people staying there. For us, the Esmerelda was clearly the best because we were adults only who like the...

Hello! My boyfriend and I spent a great vacation at the Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda from February 2 to 9, 2017. Overall, it was a great hotel with so much to offer! While my rating is a 4, my intention was to give a 4.5 (but there are no half points here!) What I learned (and read from posts) is...

This is a lovely, intimate resort on a larger property. If you are looking for quiet and relaxing, this is the place. The employees are top notch, the food was great and there wasn't a whole lot we were disappointed in. I would recommend a room on the pool side, as there is a mini road on the far side...

This hotel is located close to the airport ( about 30minutes) on a beautiful stretch of the beach. It's unfortunate that the food was very average. Having stayed at other resorts in Punta Cana and for the ratings I wouldn't stay there again. It seems they stagger a lot of the restaurants times either for staffing or to appear busier...
