Terrible sewage smell
We stayed in unit 522 for a week and had to put up with a terrible sewage smell all week. We reported the issue on day 1, and they sent maintenance to pour bleach down the bathtub drain, the smell kept coming up. Made our stay pretty miserable - and all we heard was that they did everything they could to fix the issue (pouring bleach was the only thing, and that’s not how you fix sewage problems).

The location is great - walk to the beach, shops, restaurant. Astrolabe has good breakfast and good dining option. It's a quite intimate place to eat. We loved it. The hotel is in a quiet area. The rooms are connecting and not sound proof so we heard the people in the adjacent room talking laughing, going to the bathroom, etc....Depending on the neighbors, sleep was so-so.

We loved our stay at Esmeralda Resort! This property is the perfect mix of everything you want in an Airbnb (privacy, spacious rooms including a kitchenette with minifridge and silverware) but combined with the services you want from a hotel (daily housekeeping, fresh beach towels everyday, front desk staff for recommendations/help, and breakfast onsite included).Its a very short walk to Orient bay Beach, next to the best full service beach bar, Coco Beach. Location and property can't be beat!

Loved the private pool! The restaurant was also great, both the included breakfast and the lobster dinner on Friday night. It is quiet, relaxing and within walking distance down the beach to several good restaurants. I would go again in a heartbeat!
