Pros - The poolside service was amazing. Argenis, Diogenes, Leandro, and Willis provided amazing service and were extremely helpful. These guys were amazing and made it really fun for me and my family. - The resort grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Cons- The service and food for breakfast and lunch was below average at best at the buffets. The buffet at the Gaby and Naos was tiny and very limited. They had almost nothing that catered to the "Dominican" experience for food. Most of the food was very "Americanized" and/or "Europeanized", meaning it was mostly bland and limited. As a businessman and someone who can spot when there are cost cutting measures taking place I noticed the following things: - there were no straws available at any of the restaurants. While this may seem minor it is a first indicator to the attention to detail of the resort. Almost every person I talked to at the resort (American or otherwise) noticed it, especially when they bought a coconut drink that they were forced to drink out of a tiny hole instead of a straw. - Salt and pepper were not available at any table, if you wanted it you had to wait 10-15 minutes before they even remembered that you asked for it. - They were clearly understaffed and you had to fight for decent service at the restaurants. Your drinks took forever to be refilled, if you ordered a Coke, by the time it got to you it would be watered down and warm. - The showers in the suites were disgusting, we had to call the front desk to have them give a deep clean to the showers and even then it wasn't done appropriately. They also never cleaned and replenished our small towel supply. If you want music and food by the poolside, that has been removed by the current management group according to the resort workers we spoke to during our time there... - Again, something that seems minor but is an indicator of larger problems, there was no music available in the pool area other than when they had their resort cliche pool exercise classes and dance classes which lasted all of 30 minutes. The only music available was the one that I put on my personal phone and speaker. - If you want food by the poolside you can forget about it. There is no food available at the poolside, if you want food you have to get out and get dressed to go to the mediocre buffets. Overall it was a very underwhelming experience at the Paradisus. I had heard of and read good reviews on this place which is why we went there but it was a very underwhelming experience and me and my family will not go back. We love Punta Cana and there are many resorts that are way better than this one. We will not go back to it.

The resort was nice. Clean rooms, nice pool and nice beach but so difficult making reservations for dinner. If you go with a large group you will never be able to eat together. And they need to have more activities to join during the day. They should play more games and try to get people more involved. People who worked the casino were very rude.

Joint Family Vacation

We visited Paradisus Punta Cana as a joint family vacation - two families, so we had a total of 9 in our party. The resort was very nice, the room great (very good AC - it was hot so we needed it). The junior suite set up was great - very roomy. The bar and entertainment staff were great, always friendly. If there, find Miguel behind the bar and ask for his rum drink... very good! The food was fine. Mexican restaurant was excellent. As a group we had a very nice time and had fun. We did have some problems with guest services. They weren't as helpful as we would have liked. We had trouble upon check in. The person who checked us in, forgot to put keys in two of our three check in packets. When we got to our room and unloaded all of the luggage the service staff had to let us into our room. It took two hours, two phone calls and a trip to the check in desk to get the room keys. Not sure why the keys weren't delivered to the room immediately. By the time we received the keys we missed the opportunity to make our week long dinner reservations. We had to wait until the next morning and it takes 24 hours to secure a reservation so we now had two nights with no reservations. When making reservations, you get a wish list but end up with wherever and wherever they can accommodate you. We had a party of 9 so we only got 2 dinner reservation out of the 5 nights and not at the time we wanted. The one night we were assigned to the "Beach Barbeque". We didn't even know what that was because it wasn't a selection on the restaurant wish list. Apparently is a party on the beach. Sounded like fun. So we walked to the beach and nothing was set up. We were told by the buffet hostess that the dinner was moved to the main lobby for the night. Would have been nice to have been told this. We walked up to the main lobby to find the "Beach Barbeque" was moved to a ugly conference room and the food served was not very beach barbeque like. The second reservation we received was at the Grill - which is the steakhouse. Very good... It would have been nice to have the reservation guest services person help us a little more to try to accommodate our party. Maybe helping us split our party to get a better chance at reservation. Communication was limited. The Mexican restaurant is the only restaurant that is open for lunch so we were able to eat there for lunch, which was very good. The buffet was decent. It would have been nice if the food selections were labeled. Sometimes it was hard to tell what it was you were eating. All and all we had a nice time, which is what counted.

beautiful grounds. Terrible service.

Beautiful grounds and beach. Good accommodations. Except for a few persons, the service was unbelievably bad. We requested a reservation tro a Japanese restaurant 3 days before arrival on 7/2/2017. Upon arrival, there was no record of it. We tried for 2 days and the lady in charge always gave us the same answer. We were simply "dumped" for unknown reasons to us. The alarm of the clock in our room did not work. We requested a replacement on the second day of our stay and up to the time our vacation ended, we did not receive it. To end it all, we needed to wake up at 2:00 a.m to catch an early flight to Miami. I personally asked the lady at the reception desk the evening before. And, guess what !!! THEY FORGOT TO CALL US. Thank goodness I woke up at 1:55 a.m. Around 2:15 I called the hotel operator and he simply told us that there was no record of my request. Again....Unbelievable...No one seemed to care and hardly apologized. My native language is Spanish therefore, there was no excuse about misunderstanding. We have stayed at other Paradisius resort where everything was almost perfect. As far as we are concerned, Paradisius Punta Cana is not worth what we paid, which was not "peanuts". Please improve the service or.......... Thank You.

What's to Love

All-inclusive everything: the cocktails, the grub, the utter luxuriousness of it all.

Royal Service - an exclusive boutique hotel within the resort, complete with butler service.

Squeezing every ounce of stress out of your bod with hydro-massages, facials & the private gym.

Feeling Zen with YHI Move classes that includes Prana, Power and Hatha yoga. Namaste.

Getting your craft on with classes for making cocktails, sushi, stained glass, candles and more.

The Kids Zone - water games & art workshops. For teens, DJ classes & mangrove tours.

 

What We'd Change

The resort at Paradisus Punta Cana is very large and spread out. And sometimes the wait for the shuttle is 15 or 20 minutes. But remember, waiting in paradise isn't a hardship.

 

Why You Should Go

Only 35 minutes from the Punta Cana airport. Your dream vacay will be here zippity zip.

Rally or beat the swim trunks off your opponent on four tennis courts. A little rivalry never hurt anybody.

You can tee off at the world-renowned Cocotal Golf & Country Club. Bring your A game.

In the surf, you can dive into kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving (for certified drivers).

On terra firma, there are guided hikes, bike tours, a rock climbing wall, paddle tennis and more.

There's killer entertainment: live music, Latin & Dominican parties, but that's just the tip of the beachberg.
