Great Resort!

This was my first time visiting Punta Cana and I was very pleased by the service, accommodations, and overall aesthetic of Paradisus Punta Cana. Upon arrival, we were immediately greeted and directed to check in. The staff was very welcoming and friendly and made us very excited about the upcoming week at Paradisus. The room that we had was exactly where we wanted to be (close proximity to the beach and restaurants) and was much nicer than I had anticipated. The next 2 days were spent poolside and eating in the restaurants/buffets that were available to us. I have seen several reviews stating that the food was bland - I disagree. I thought the food was fantastic and full of flavor. The service at every single restaurant or buffet that we attended was incredible - everyone was so nice and very quick to return with our drinks. The last 2 days we decided to upgrade to Royal Service so that we could partake in the adults only pool and upgraded dining options. I must say, this was 100% worth the extra money! The adults only pool was so relaxing and all the cabanas that were offered were very comfortable. In addition, the Royal Service lounge was incredible - we stopped in and had several conversations with the employees in the lounge and they were incredible to talk to. Sharing stories about their lives and what it is like to live in the Dominican Republic and making suggestions about things to do and see. Lastly, the nightlife and shows at Paradisus were incredible On the first night we attended a Cirque show that was probably my favorite show of the entire trip. The performers were incredible! Each night there would be a DJ and the staff would teach everyone new dances - the dance staff was so much fun and knew how to get everyone to have a great time. Overall, I 100% recommend Paradisus to anyone traveling to Punta Cana and I hope to get back at some point in the future!

Great to Relax!

The resort is very nice. its very serein and a Great place to relax. The down I saw was the food options. I have been in many resorts and this has been the least favorite in food preference. The breads were not fresh, tasted stale. The buffet had the same choices every day. with the exception of maybe 2 items. The food always seemed cold. They have a trolley to take you around however it takes a long time for the trolley to arrive at a pick up point. I believe they only have one of these cars. the room is nice and spacious however it needed a couple of refreshed items such as the mirrors and the safe. the company that Cheap Caribbean recommended Amstar was a headache in the airport. They work totally manual so they had to look for every passenger one by one in some paper sheets they had. It took us an hour to find out which was the shuttle that was transporting us to the hotel.

Will not go back

The resort was lovely. Lot of green space that was very well maintained. The staff was very friendly some more attentive then others, even with tipping. Our butler was very accommodating and friendly. Seen to all our needs and offered suggestions to make the stay more enjoyable Now the negatives The food was subpar. Had a steak at their grill it was so tough. It was a ribeye Neither my husband or I finished a 1/3 of the meal. Food was on the bland side. , The food at the buffet was on cold side to Luke warm dried out and/or tough. Overall all dining experience was a 1. Alcohol most drinks are not what you are used to the US. They add fruit juices to everything. No speciality tropical drinks like other resorts..

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.
