Very Beautiful

We had a great time. The food was amazing & the resort was beautiful. Our only complaint is the pool did not play any music NOT ONE DAY!!! It was kind of boring. I liked it but dont think well be going back. We want a lil more "LIFE" by the pool.

Poor service

We've stayed at the Paradisus properties before, notably the excellent location in Playa. We were expecting a similar experience in DR but were quite mistaken. Everything APPEARED very similar, but service levels were drastically lower. Food quality at the main all-day buffet locations was also poor - bad options, bad service, just bad. Brunch was one of the best features in Playa - here it was a complete disappointment every morning. I would consider the brand again but only after a lot more research and looking at other options. I was a raving fan prior to trying this location. The description here also doesn't highlight that the Reserve is VERY family friendly in the DR. Expect kids to be everywhere you go.

Ultimate relaxation

We spent a very relaxing week at the Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real to celebrate a 50th birthday. The airport transfers both ways were painless and efficient. From the moment we checked in the service was excellent. Our room was ready and we were shown to a beautiful, large one bedroom unit over looking the pool. It was so big easily 2 additional people could have stayed there. Irvine was our "concierge" and he made our dinner reservations. He did a great job of getting us into a different restaurant each night. Our favorite restaurant was Rare-- the steak house. I had the best ribeye I've ever had. The only choices for breakfast were the buffets which had a plethora of options but a few times were pretty crowded. One of my favorite things was a leisurely breakfast at the larger buffet, sitting outside by the pool with a beautiful view of the ocean, beach and palm trees. We really enjoyed getting to know Fausto, our server at the buffet. All of the people were very friendly. Overall the food was very good. The drinks were top shelf and the bartenders were great at offering suggestions of new drinks to try. The fitness room at the Reserve was very nice with adequate equipment. We enjoyed a beautiful 10 minute walk from the Reserve to the beach but they had golf carts if you preferred a ride. The resort was very quiet, which we loved-- not a loud party atmosphere, but there was fun to be found. Overall, it was a luxurious, relaxing vacation and we hope to go back someday.

Can I stay in the Reserves forever?

from the time we arrive we were treated like family - they actually remembered us from 2016 trip. everything is included and you know it from the word go - Folks are tripping over each other to service your every need. We enjoy going in the "rainy" season as it's a lot less people and so that much more attention just for us. We will be going back year after year.

The modern, swank rooms are humongous and have Jacuzzis.

It's an epic family-friendly resort with a children's swimming pool and toddlers' splash pool.

The ginormous, spellbinding spa with extensive treatments to please your soul (ahhh).

Mother Nature showing off at the breath-stealing Eco Garden where tomatoes, okra and bananas grow.

Fancying a full day of unlimited free greens fees at Cocotal Golf Course. Cart fees apply.
