Overview

Drive 20 minutes from Playa del Carmen and you’ll hit the Hotel BlueBay Grand Esmeralda – a big beachfront number chock-full of things to do. The trio of pools is where everything happens, and there are loads of poolside games.

At night, the hotel lays on a buzzy beach party – perfect if you’re heading into town after – and live theatre shows. Food-wise, there are six à la cartes including a cracking Mexican place worth putting your glad rags on for.

Please Note

While you're away, you'll have access to our 24-hour digital service, and a rep will visit at least once.

Pools

The hotel means business when it comes to pools. There are three, as well as a couple of swimming spots for kids. Loungers are spread out all around the water’s edge.

Pool Scene

The sand is only footsteps away, and there’s loads of space for sunbathing there, too.

Food & Drink

Food from around the world is dished up at the international buffet, while the six à la cartes offer Mexican, Italian and Asian cuisine. If you get peckish between meals, snacks are served 24 hours a day.

Freshly-caught fish and ceviche is plated up at the seafood eatery, where the tables look out over the ocean. Then there’s the grill restaurant for filet mignon and New York steak.

Entertainment

A DJ gets the crowd going at the nightly beach party – many guests head out to sample Playa del Carmen’s nightlife afterwards. Entertainment, like karaoke, is on from time to time, and the sports bar is open around-the-clock.

Sports & Activities

When you’re by the pool, you can play a game of giant chess or compete in a volleyball tournament. Sailing, kayaking and waterskiing* are up for grabs at the beach, and there are two tennis courts.

Facility Overview

Three big pools sidle up against the sand. This is where most of the action takes place, including water volleyball, giant chess and poolside games. On the dining front, you’ve got a whole eight restaurants to choose from – ticking off Asian, Mexican and Italian cuisine. And after sundown, you can head to the beach for one of the nightly parties, or work your way through the cocktails at the bar

For sporty types, there’s football* and squash*, as well as a pair of tennis courts.

Health & Beauty

The BlueBay Spa* deals in facials, massages and other body treatments. There’s also a state-of-the-art gym that comes with steppers and treadmills.

First of all I'm not really the type of person who would leave a negative review on a media platform because I find it can be generally over critical. This is not a review more of a warning for...
