Overall we had a great experience. The resort location in a cove between two mountains on the sea was very romantic; the view was spectacular. Our accommodations were lovely and comfortable (we had a suite facing the marina). All of the staff were friendly and helpful. This is a great resort for couples of any age, including those with children. The breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets provided excellent choices and quality food, and their menus changed daily. From our perspective, it was far superior having the dinner buffet than eating at the other restaurants on the property, which were disappointing. That said, this didn't spoil a wonderful, relaxing experience. The selection of beverages, including wine and liquor, was great. It is a very quiet all-inclusive resort, which suited us perfectly. No parties are allowed. This might not suit some, but it worked for us very well. The spa experience was excellent. We enjoyed getting Swedish massages. We made this trip, in part, to celebrate my wife's birthday. The hotel management sent a bottle of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries to our room on her birthday. We were pleasantly surprised and delighted by this gesture. We just came back to NYC yesterday and are already dreaming about our return to Riu Palace, St. Martin, Anse Marcel. Merci Beaucoup. A bientot.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Esmeralda for 2 nights and upon check-in, we both instantly regretted not staying for longer. The resort is absolutely beautiful with 360 degree views of mountains, palm trees and ocean. The room we stayed in was huge with a nice king size bed, kitchenette equipped with some small kitchen utensils and a bathroom with overhead shower. The room was clean and very spacious. Please be aware that the outlets are European and require converters for your electronics. The front desk was kind enough to provide them for us. I only wish that there were more outlets in the walls (really have to look hard to complain about something!). The staff at the front desk was very helpful in orienting us to that side of the island and making dinner recommendations for us. They took care of booking our reservations and calling the car service for us one night for dinner. Everything was perfect and wonderful and I have already recommended this hotel to everyone back home!
