    Nice family getaway

    Great location, nice large rooms with semi-private pools, very friendly staff. Only problem was a broken patio door that was a security concern, but it was quickly dealt with the next morning after arrival

    Very friendly & helpful staff, restaurant is top notch, rooms are in excellent condition. Individual pool for every 4 units was a real plus. Easy walk to the beach. All around excellent choice & we would highly recommend after staying for the week! Beach is also in great shape with three brand new beach side bar / restaurants!

    Esmeralda Resort is still recovering from The terrible Hurricane Irma . They have fully renovated reopened the fantastic Restaurant Astrolabe run by Thomas and his associates. We stayed in Building 470 and it had new AC, new Fridge, new kitchen utensils, and fresh paint . Most units but not all have reopened and some are under repair still . The pools are great , the ocean has fully recovered . Coco beach restaurant and the beach chair set up have not been redone yet and may take time still . A short walk to the newly re built Bikini beach to use chairs and shade at no cost to Esmeralda guests is not asking much considering how devastating y the hurricane was. All the staff are positive and trying hard during the rebuilt of the remaining units and grounds. Some patience is needed until than. Orient beach is still as spectacular as ever and will be complimented when all the renovations are complete . By the way there is some construction noise during the day , but it is not a problem . When you are on the beach the sound of the ocean is all you hear

    Front desk staff was arrogant and dismissive. Concierge was absolutely no help. We were booked by Windstar. When we asked about transfers they acted like they never heard of Windstar. Checkout was 10:00 so we had to sit in their lobby for 2 hours waiting for transfer. Bell staff and bartenders were great. Breakfast Buffett was good. Room was small but clean and well appointed. Common areas were limited and felt tight for number of rooms.

    Great people, sadly still recovering from Irma

    This was our first visit to SXM since the devastation of Irma. So saddening to see the devastation but very heartening to see the islanders working hard to reestablish themselves. Esmeralda needs help with landscaping and beautifying the facilities and is obviously still in renovation mode. The staff is friendly and eager to please. Breakfast here was wonderful as always. Best of luck to all as you continue to work on getting this beautiful island back to its former glory.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Its an excellent location resort with friendly staff, but we are upset we were not told not to use water for drinking, etc upon our arrival. The notice about that was face down on the reception desk, they showed it to us only when we asked about why there is no warning anywhere to be found. We saw this displayed at a different resort. This negligence places tourists’ health in danger. There were couples with kids in resort, not sure if they even knew of the problem
