Royal Service

What a wonderful resort! The grounds were immaculate, and the beach was perfect. No rocks or seaweed, and very few people trying to sell you anything. The Royal Service was great- definitely worth it. Our butler, Sigfredo, took care of us! The food was solid everywhere we went. Breakfast at La Palapa was really good. The trolley shuttles were a little frustrating - they didn't seem to run on any set schedule, and you might wait over 15 minutes for one. We were there during a slower time, which was perfect. I can't imagine battling crowds for all of the restaurants, beach chairs, and shuttles. The room was clean and up to date - the A/C didn't get it quite as cold as we usually like, but we like to keep penguins in our room when we sleep! Overall, I would definitely go back, and would definitely do the Royal Service again.

Nice Upgrade to The Reserve

We arrived and were upgraded to the The Reserve section of Paradisus. I highly recommend this and this is why I gave all my ratings 5 palms. People are great, rooms excellent, service perfect and the options for food dining were delightful.

I write you this email as we are in our “VIP” upgrade at Paradisus Punta Cana. Please keep in mind this is the second time we are staying at one of your hotels. The first time was last year in Cancun last April which we fell in love with. The service amenities and room was amazing there. We checked into the Paradisus Punta Cana on Thursday, April 18. Upon checking in the concierge informed us that for the VIP upgrade there was a promotion going on for 30% off. For the five nights that we are staying at your hotel this should work out to $350 which the concierge stated was the exact price. When I went to check my credit card activity this morning the transaction for the VIP upgrade was a charge of $408 on my card. After getting to our room you could not stay in there for longer than five minutes because it smelled very bad like paint. After calling the concierge back and about 2 1/2 hours later we were moved to a different room. Keep in mind this was at around 11 PM and we have a five-year-old son that I had to wake up and carry as we were transferred via golf cart. The people that moved us to our room we’re giving us an attitude as if it was something that we personally did. The room that we are in now the TV doesn’t work and there is no hot water which was also the same with the first room. I called about the TV on Thursday and here we are Saturday still with no one doing anything about it. I am so upset about everything that’s happened so far on our vacation I can’t even put it into words. It is not fair that we are being treated this way as guests considering how hard it is to save up for a vacation once a year. This will be the last time that we will ever stay at a Melia hotel. No one should be treated this way. I honestly cannot wait to go home on Tuesday.

Fun trip!

My family and I really enjoyed this resort. Our room was perfectly located in between restaurants, beach, and multiple pools. We were on the royal service side and loved it. It is a large resort but we had no issues getting around. We enjoy getting to know the staff and learning about the country we're visiting. Food was good. Bana was our favorite. Gabi beach was our favorite hangout at night. Lots of activities throughout the day and night. We are already planning our return!

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.

Okay, this place is swimming with bars - the lobby, the swim-up in the pool, and in a few of the nosh spots. The Red Lounge is also where you can throw down.
