Worst vacation we've had
Aug 11 2017
This was the worst vacation experience we have had. The flight was 6 hours late, when we arrived at the hotel they overbooked and didn't have a room for us. They then put us in a nicer Reserve room for the night but we had to check out the next day at noon and then our original room wasn't ready until 3pm. The whole process of checking out and checking back in cost me several hours with my family on day 2 of our vacation since I had to go to the front desk to check out and again to check in and the resort is very large. Because we didn't have a room until 3pm, we couldn't make reservations for the restaurants until we had the new room number so we had to wait until the afternoon on day 2 to make reservations and because of that we didn't get some of the restaurants we really wanted. In fact, they gave us reservations to one that we didn't even ask for. The hotel staff was not friendly at all from the front desk to the wait staff. The cleaning service wouldn't even come until after 4:30 each day. While we were at our stay the toilet broke at 10:30 at night on our third day and there were bugs on my clothes when we stored them in the closet so I had to keep them in my luggage the entire week. I was shocked at the good reviews and expected better. Our travel agent was able to get us $400 vouchers for another Apple vacation and it expires in one year. Sorry Apple, that isn't enough. At a minimum we should be able to use the vouchers for a longer period than one year. We have spent over $20,000 with Apple of the last few years and will be not be using Apple anymore based on how they handled this.

Hands down best staff out of all the resorts I have stayed at. The hotel is beautiful, food was great, the size of the resort was a big issue. You have to take a trolley almost every. We had an upgraded room by the Beach if your booking that's the way to go. Otherwise prepare go walk!!! If you dont want to catch a trolley its easy to get 15-20,000 steps a day. Trust me my sister got a standard room and we keep track of our steps. Plus her standard room was bigger than my upgraded room!

Paradisus Punts Cana
Aug 09 2014
The resort itself, along with the staff was excellent. However, we felt pressured to attend basically a time share program. Plus it was such a large resort, I would have preferred a more intimate resort. If I returned to Punts Cana, it would not be to the Paradisus resort.

Did not live up to expectations!!!!
Jun 28 2014
Check in went good but we where bombarded with staff telling us to upgrade and how what we paid for only allowed us to a limit part of the hotel amenities. Then we sat through a travel seminar which we were forced into to only be treated rudely because we declined and the rest of the stay the staff where not friendly. We had problems with our toilet multiple times with no fix just temporary fixes day by day. We also had ants in our bed multiple days and the hotel just would keep changing sheets and leave a bottle of bug spray in our room for us to keep using. Tried to get another room but would not accommodate with out a $600 upgrade. We also booked this trip for our honeymoon and upon arrival no one had let the hotel know for that service provided. Not pleased with what we thought we where going to get and really did not.

We were not informed beforehand that we would be pressured to attend a 90 minute presentation. Our guide assigned to us when we arrived was not completely forthcoming about the presentation. He made a lot of promises about making our dinner reservations, and getting us vouchers for the spa, etc. and jewelry. The next morning when he was taking us to breakfast, we didn't realize we were getting primed for a presentation. When we left before the presentation, that was the last we ever saw of our guide and needless to say, he never made those dinner reservations or did we get any vouchers. We were also disappointed in the casino which consisted of only about 10 slot machines and a couple gaming tables. I must say that the entertainment in the theater was exceptional. The beach was absolutely beautiful. We also enjoyed the pool activities, water exercises and especially the water bike spinning classes. The instructors were great!! I also wish we were better informed of the different levels of wrist bands and what they meant before we made our travel arrangements.

Very pretty however some problems
Apr 14 2014
We arrived to a broken bed that took 4 days to fix, however no money offered back or any services extra given. Room service repeatly came in though do not disturb signs were up. Shuttle forgot to stop at our hotel to get us the day for departure, they had us wait an hour to get on next shuttle causing us to almost miss flight. However, the beach was beautiful and the food was great.

We went to the Paradisus resort as a large group. The resort was so accommodating. Elaine made sure that everything went smoothly throughout our stay. The personal attention was exemplary!! The resort is beautiful, the food delicious and the staff very friendly and accommodating. A great choice for a family getaway.

What a crew! Excellent services all over the hotel, but Marcelo´s team (Leandro, Diogenes Hernandez, Willy Peña) where superb! Worth to pay a visit every day for sure! Always super friendly, chatting and serving all with extreme efficiency.

This place is AWESOME!! From the friendly staff and the nightly entertainment this place has it all! The bartenders ( Luis Parra and Bladimir Heredia) that work at the hut on the beach are the BEST! 🍹

Nice Resort

First off, we enjoyed our stay at this resort. We were a family of 7 and our requests for adjoining rooms and double beds were accommodated. The room was very pleasant and clean. The double shower is a great idea, unfortunately, the drain was not working well, after a call to front desk, it was draining a little better. The air condition unit was dripping condensation at the entrance of the bathroom and this was not addressed. The grounds are beautiful and very well kept. The beach is also beautiful all sand, no rocks. There were a few sea weeds but that is to be expected and they were picked up most everyday. A few beefs: the constant traffic on the main alley from lobby to beach is annoying particularly with children in tow. Lots of delivery trucks, small service trucks, shuttles, Circle buggies… The constant sewage smell at the corner of Block 24. We stayed at this block and the smell was terrible. Is it a pumping station for sewage on the corner????? We were quite alarmed by the fumigation truck at 8:15pm driving around all the roads. We acknowledge the need for it (mosquitoes, dengue etc…) but the timing could be better. How about late evening when most people are in their rooms? Now the food. I agree with the reviews about the reservation system. We spent most of our first morning getting reservations for the restaurants. We particularly enjoyed the food at Vento. Mole was also very good. The beach BBQ on Jan 2nd ran out of white wine!!!! Never heard of such a thing. The buffets at Naos and Gabi Beach were ok. Not much variety but nobody left hungry. The staff at the restaurants was extremely pleasant and accommodating, in sharp contrast with most of the buffet staff (except Daniel at Gabi Beach) Getting a coffee at breakfast was difficult even more so a refill. The hostess at lunch at Naos and at dinner at The Grill on Friday Jan 5th was particularly disagreeable. Yes, the job is demanding, the clients difficult and the hours very long but it could be done with a smile and less rolling of the eyes. In spite of all these remarks, we did enjoy our stay.

Fantastic Place

Just returned from Paradisus Punta Cana with a family of 10. Had a fabulous time. The grounds are beautiful and well kept, fantastic for beautiful pictures. The beach is beautiful and great for catching waves, chilling and beach walks. The pool is nice and big and has walk in areas if you have little kids. We had 6 adults and 4 kids and never had concerns of the jumping in, they would walk in to a depth they were comfortable with. Not much entertainment by day unless you are into pool yoga, the foam party was a nice touch though for a change of yoga but fantastic fun by night. Beach parties, music, entertainment. You were never back at your room to early because you had nothing to do. The food was great. Restaurants that we attended provided great service and good food. Buffet was standard but had everything to fill you up that you were not hungry moments later. Ramone served us a few times at the buffet and restaurants and made our kids feel like his family. Dancing with them and giving them high fives every time they saw each other. We had a server at the pool that always had a smile and made sure we were well taken care of. Forgot his name but he was awesome. We never had royal service or reserve and they did not treat us any different. We were family. Our only issue was house keeping which would come around 5 when we returned back to the hotel room to change for dinner, one of my family members they forgot to clean the room. But after a call they came right away. The other issue is storage in the room they could use more drawers especially if a family of 4 is using it. Only for that reason I knocked off a star. Eitherwise the resort is fantastic and I would return again. At the end of the day I had what I wanted relaxation, fun, beautiful weather, beautiful beach and pool.
