I am a returning client at Emotions in Juan Dolio. They have taken special measures during Covid times to ensure health and safety for all. I love the hotel as it’s cozy with modern rooms, food, drinks, beach and the hard working friendly people! My favourite restaurant is Lolita (Mexican), as the food is great and as is the service by Rafael, Felix, Jose Daniel, and chef Willy. I also love the Dominican / Italian restaurant and always get fantastic service from Luis and Jose Antonio and all their colleagues. The food in the three open restaurants was delicious as usual and offer a great variety. Was pleasantly surprised how good the gnocchi was! Special thank you to the waitresses/waiters Juana, Sashaba, Orlando, Jonathan, Dionisio, Juan Carlos, Jose, Pedro, Roberto and everyone else there for taking such good care of us. The beach bar staff during the day were fun and always went out of their way to stock the bar with what we liked to drink. Jose in the cafe, always made us feel welcome and provided great service! Any issue I have always gets fixed within reason, all minor and normal for resorts. The reception staff have been very responsive and Navidad helped me immensely when trying to figure out the newly implemented Covid test required to return to Canada. I am fluent in a few languages and appreciate many of the staff at Emotions speaking Spanish, English, French, Italian and others. My Spanish has improved immensely! I hope to be back at this resort as it is and will continue to be a beautiful home away from home for me.

Well the 3 stars because the food was not good , the variety was not great . But Natividad at the customer service was great , super nice and attentive , made our life easier at the resort . The rooms are very confortable, my sea view was amazing , ask for rooms 1217,1219 they are great . New Year’s Eve was excellent , our waiter Pedro deserve 10 Stars , my family and I enjoyed the service , the food was great no complains . So much fun . We went to the Mexican restaurant and they don’t have margaritas amazing , The only good thing there was Juan Daniel , nice and gave us drinks options . The waiter who came to take the order Rafael was not friendly , had an attitude , I want to eat 2 appetizers n he gave me an attitude n decided not to order my main course . Ordered a salad Tex Mex and was bored , no taste and Tiny , the tacos were great , the flavor amazing .Overall it was a great time with family , nice weather , warm beach , beach service was nice as well .
