Fodor's Review

This all-inclusive offers flash and class in a Vegas-meets-cruise ship environment with 14 restaurants, 11 bars, and nearly 1,000 rooms scattered between two buildings. Rooms in family-friendly La Esmeralda have marble floors, stocked minibars, flat-screen TVs, and extras for the kids—like Play Stations and nightly turndown with milk and cookies. The pool area looks like a water park compared to neighboring adults-only La Perla. For those wanting extra pampering, the Royal Service package includes a personal 24-hour butler, designated pool area, and private Jacuzzis. The two resorts are connected by way of the restaurants and bars; however, certain establishments are only open to La Perla guests, who pay higher rates.
