Pretty Property in Paradise
This resort is very large. Esmerelda is close to the beach. We were very lucky with our room - it was close to the lobby area, and very quiet. We loved it! The beach was very nice - clean - soft sand. Interestingly, while there are signs saying that reserving beach chairs is prohibited, the great majority of them had towels on them by 8:30 am. Same with the poolside chairs. People get up early to claim their chairs. The food at the buffets were about a 3.5 - 4, on a scale from 1-5. We couldn't get into the Brazilian restaurant at all - the entire week, so we did the Italian and the Asian. The Italian was very good, and the servers were very friendly. The Asian featured a buffet for appetizers and desserts , and then you ordered your main course. The house red and white wines were good - no complaints. We did some excursions to Santo Domingo and a catamaran snorkeling adventure. The communication for the evening activities could have been better. There was a carnival event one night, with a roasted pig - but I couldn't find mention of it in their website. There was also something at the beach - again, nothing on the agenda site of their website. One last note - while I understand that the wait staff there shouldn't have to speak English, it would have been helpful for some of them to understand some English. There are a lot of international guests there, and English is pretty universal for most of them. I did my best to speak Spanish and learn some words.
