Beautiful beach
Beautiful gardens and comfortable rooms. The restaurant choices were great and the all inclusive package was exactly what we needed. The best part is the beach - the pool was nothing special but it’s no wonder when there’s a crystal clear, clean beach right at the hotel. I’d stay here again without hesitation.

Lovely stay

Beautiful location
Beautiful location & gardens around the hotel are excellent. The bathroom needed an update in the room and very small. We also found toilets near the evening main bar not clean and definitely in need of update. Staff were very good but the fact it is 5 star quite shocked you could not have all cocktails. Some you had to pay extra.

Great Stay!
My wife and I had a great stay at Diamonds La Gemma a few weeks ago. But we need to make some considerations about this resort: first, this is not a truly 5-star resort. The beachfront rooms are very dated with dark wood furniture, old & stained curtains and need some serious renovations. The beachfront rooms area does not have that light fresh beach feeling. Second, the "all inclusive" package is NOT really ALL inclusive. With only one type of alcoholic drink in each "category"... ONLY one brand of wine, vodka, rum, whiskey and so on. If you want another brand you have to pay extra for it! And not all cocktails are included either. Having stayed at a few all-inclusive resorts around the world, this was a bit weird and disappointing. The hotel grounds are amazing and very well maintained. The vibe is perfect for relaxation and laid back days on a stunning beach. And there's the staff! The staff is definitely 5 stars! They would do anything for you to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable, even though sometimes it seems they need more training. Hats off for Jeremiah at the Tropicana bar! He went far and beyond to make us happy throughout our stay, always with a smile on his face. Thanks Eric at reception who gave us a 4 pm checkout. Olga was also very kind and nice, thanks a lot. Last, make sure you bring enough cash as there's no ATM machine in the resort or nearby. Overall our stay was perfect and we would stay there again! Hopefully, they do some renovations.
