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.

Excellent time during our vacations .. the dancing teaches were amazing :-) We look forward to returning next year ... We strongly recommend the place if you want to have nice beaches and nice people around ! Please ask for Ronil Reyes if you want to learn how to dance quick, super nice guy! Also for David at the gym when you want to have an incredible workout, best spinning class ever!!

Went here with my parents in early April. SO SO SO SO many good things to say about this resort. 1. The grounds are absolutely beautiful so if you are looking to take great photos this is the place to be. Super clean and well maintained. 2. The resort has such a cozy feel and is easy to get around. 3. Food was great. We only visited the buffets as that was more than enough for us. The buffets are right by the beach so it was super convenient! 4. Beautiful beach. Very clean. I had taken a walk along the beach and walked by a couple of resorts and I have to say the Paradisus beach was in the best shape! There is a bar on the beach and Juan Batista was amazing to us everyday! 5. The stafffff. Super kind and friendly and really create a connection with you. Ronil and William were part of the group that was in charge of entertainment and they were both super fun and great to be around. 6. A very well organized entertainment schedule and everything was always on time. Loved all the parties. The staff made sure to include everyone in the festivities. WIll 100000000% be coming back here!

Amazing AI holiday

At the reception you are greeted by lush gardens, a grand entrance, seat swings, ponds with flamingos and turtles in a beautiful and tranquil setting. Bags taken to one side for you as you check in and get your room keys with a refreshing drink. You are then taken on a golf buggy to your room through more well kept gardens surrounded by a palm tree jungle. The accommodation is all in blocks looking like large Villas to not spoil the setting. The you will notice the bikes dotted around for the guests to get around on should you wish to. We stayed in a junior suite close to the main pool that is their entry level room but it was modern, large, clean and well kept. A double walk in shower, dressing gowns and slippers, daily stocked mini bar with beers, soft drinks, milk and water and a balcony looking over the gardens and palm trees. The Paradisus main pool is very large and linked with a shallower pool for children and another for water sports. All secluded enough to feel like you can get away from either if you want to. The sun loungers were well spaced out but we never had issues finding any. A swim up bar on one side and set back bar on the other side offering all the drinks you could want. All of the spirits they used tasted good, the wines were sweet but no complaints. Sparkling wines were the only drink not on the basic all inclusive package that we noticed. Daily activities at the pool included Aqua aerobics, water polo, and paddle board exercise. All no pressure to join in and fun to watch. Lots of energy from the activity team in house and also Master class sessions of pilates, step and aqua by Anne-Marie were of a very high standard. It was good to have an experienced, qualified instructor who specialised in these classes. Next to the pool is the large Gabi beach bar and restaurant. Very modern and definitely the favourite hang out for the younger guests. Chill out, café del mar style music, great selection of quality buffet food at lunch and dinner we ate in here most of the time when we didn't fancy going to one of the restaurants or taking advantage of the 24hr room service. We never had an issue getting a table or waiting long to be served cold water and drinks. The restaurants between the pool and beach are all set within their own area of gardens, ponds and wooden walk ways and other interesting features. A lot of time and skill has been put into the layout of this hotel. The staff all well trained and happy to help with anything. We found booking the restaurants should be done at least the day before if you want to be eating around 7. The ala carte restaurants are smaller than the buffet ones, tables not too close together maintaining a good dining experience making booking necessary. Beyond the restaurants and GABI is the beach, amazing soft white sand and palm trees. No seaweed as mentioned by other guests. Maybe there had been a storm out at sea?. A dozen large double bed comfortable loungers. To the right the Royal service area with an abundance of butlers back and forth with drinks orders. A little further on the beach area for those staying at the reserve. We had fantastic stay at the Paradisus Punta Cana and would definitely come back again for another holiday and recommend to family and friends.

Stayed at Paradisus Punta Cana from April 4 to the11 and have to say it was the best vacation. The resort is absolutely beautiful and clean, the beach is fabulous and the pool is so clean with lots of chairs for everyone. This resort has the best staff. Guest service manager Oscar De La Cruz was fantastic our rooms were the best, Argenis De Los Santo was the best poolside bartender he was always so happy and pleasant the best ever, Diogenes Hernandez, Marcelo Sanchez, and Leandro Sanchez make the best drinks at the pool bar. Entertainment by Xtasis Serve and wandel y lancelo was great. I can’t say enough about this resort I will definitely be back.

We arrived late on Thursday April 4th! We arranged through Dominican Limo for a Black stretch limo to transfer us to Paradisus (About 20-25 Min drive) Upon arrival we were very pleased with our rooms in the same villa #15 with a pool view:) Exactly what we had requested prior to arrival! Big thanks to Oscar De La Cruz! Guest Services Manager, he ensured all of our requests were met and our Dinner resverations were complete. He was very attentive and ensured us if we needed anything at all to let him know, he was bery easy to make contact with via email! We quickly got a chair the next morning and had amazing pool side service by Argenis De Los Santos. There was 5 of us and he always made sure we never had a empty glass. He went above and beyond to help us with chairs, food etc! His english is very good and easy to understand. The other bartenders at the pool Diogenes Hernandez, Marcelo Sanchez, Leandro Sanchez are all attentive, quick at making the drinks! And all drinks are made from scratch! No slush machines which we prefer! We did some paddle boad yoga with xtasis service wandel y lancelo group and it was good, we didnt even fall off! The resort is clean, and pretty easy to get around! I came last fall and enjoyed the resort just as much! We walked down to the markets on the beach there are some to the left and some to the right! The beach is beautiful and not alot of seaweed! They have nets out to catch it! All Dinner Restaurants we tried were fantasic! And the Champangne was great! We will return as we were pleased with the resort and everything it has to offer! Thanks again Paradisus for everything!
