I already wrote a review about LBP Esmeralda few years ago when we went as a couple (not with the 2 year old) saying the hotel was near perfect but still needed a few tweaks to really get there. Well I think the same this time around.
Everything is great, staff is friendly and caring, very nice. The room is quite big and is cleaned everyday with much care and attention. Food is not out of this world but very eatable and the pools and beach are great.
The only thing I dislike about this place is the fact that if you need something (a crib, the trash removed, just to cite some examples) you have to ask several times before they actually decide to do it. They tell you they’ll take care of it but half the time it doesn’t get done.
Also, some foods have that weird flavor like they’re almost rotten sometimes. Something the hotel should know about and be careful with.
Last thing : the parties at night. It’s fine but if you’re going for an early night with a baby that has light sleep, know that the music BLASTS until around 11pm.
So like I said : good but perfectible.More
