    This was literally the worst hotel experience that I’ve ever had. You’d have to be crazy to book a night at this place when there are better resorts such as the Hyatt or the Sanctuary. We booked this trip for a 2 night stay over Valentines weekend. As Expedia gold, I’ve booked 100s of hotels and 5-6 resorts in Punta Cana alone. When we arrived, the people at the security gate claimed that there was a problem with our reservation, though I’m looking at it in the system over the guy’s shoulder. He refused to let me go to the front desk to speak with them about any problems that may exist and we had to sit out in the sun for 2 hours before I made enough ruckus to convince him to let me go inside to speak with the front desk. Once there, the front desk personnel claimed I would have to give them additional money in cash in order to make my reservation. I explained that I found this to be very weird and after 2 hours of talking to them I asked to just call Expedia. They initially claimed they couldn’t call Expedia, so I asked for use of the WiFi in order to make the call as my US phone doesn’t work in DR. These idiots quickly exclaimed that I couldn’t use the WiFi because it was only for guest.( which I already had a paid reservation that these morons didn’t honor) Ultimately, I decided to just leave after 4 hours and book at a far better hotel though I paid 2-3 times more. This place isn’t 5 star quality by far, it’s hardly 3. The reviews on this site are skewed

    Esmeralda hasn’t changed in the last several years and could probably do with a little refurbishment. The service, however, is fantastic. The staff here is attentive, friendly and efficient. Juan, a restaurant manager, remembered my name after a week since I had talked with him, and another restaurant manager walked me to a tram stop when I was unsure of how to return from a different resort. For my last breakfast, Jaro escorted me to a decorated table, and Angel joined him for a special goodbye. With both a quiet pool and a party pool and direct beach access, it’s hard to beat Esmeralda for a great vacation.

    Staff is amazing, excellent food, great entertainment. Outside areas really well mantained. Interiors, especially in room buildings need some maintenance. Cleanliness could be improved. Overall, very pleasing stay!

    As time progressed, my trip became better but to be honest and fair I will mention the good the bad and the ugly. Rooms are very dated, smelly and not very clean. The pool area and over all hotel looks well maintained. The restaurants are far from 5 star. The facility is huge and you have many dining options but they were all booked and the options really were buffet buffet and buffet. Staff is over all well trained and it wouldn’t be right to complained just because a few lazy faces. This facility is a strong 4 star.
