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.

My husband and I have been to Punta Cana 5 times and have stayed at 5 different resorts. All resorts have been great, we just like new experiences. This is the first time writing a review, but felt it was necessary to do. We stayed at Paradisus Punta Cana from Feb 10-16th and had a wonderful time. About a month prior to leaving on this trip we almost switched to a hotel we stayed at last year, due to some of the reviews we had read. I am so glad we didn’t change hotels and that is my main reason for writing this review. What we really liked about this hotel: 1. The grounds were beautiful. The hotel is large, but we enjoyed walking the grounds and taking in all the beauty! You can hop on carts that come around, but we only did that once. 2. The service was great! We had royal service. Our butler was Alex and he was always there for us. He booked all of our dinners and had surprises in our room for us. We also had amazing service at the royal pool area and at the lobby bar. Every night after dinner we liked to hang out at the lobby bar and the service was top notch! We will miss Juan, Jose’ and Juligo! They are amazing!! 3. The beach was awesome! Waves were a little intimidating, but once you got past the break zone we had so much fun. We also enjoyed walking the beach in the afternoon. Overall, food was okay. We enjoyed Bana, Mole and morning breakfast at Palapa the best. We also enjoyed ordering snacks at the royal pool area and having a little picnic lunch on our beach chairs. I know there have been a lot of reviews about the rooms being dated. In comparison to other resorts the room met our expectations. We don’t spend a lot of time in our rooms on vacation. All in all we had a lot of fun! The resort exceeded our expectations and we were sad to leave!

Nice resort but large

The paradisus Punta Cana is a beautiful well maintained resort about 25 minutes drive from the PUJ airport. The resort is huge and spread out. They provide trams that run throughout the resort to take guests around. They have several al a cart restaurants that are reservation only. Be sure to make your reservations or you’ll be dining in the buffet each evening. It would be better if they implemented the AMR way of dining at the Now Jade or sapphire in Mexico and allow guests to choose which restaurant they wish to dine at and give them a pager to hold until their table is ready. This system works so well and allows more guests to dine at a time that works for them. Our room was clean, tidy and had all of the amenities needed for our stay. The pool was large and beautiful. The pool bar offered easy access for adult beverages and the pool bar attendants were friendly. The beach was huge and ocean a beautiful turquoise color. We enjoyed strolling on the beach in the afternoon. The staff at the front desk were efficient in getting our room assigned but had an issue with one of the keys upon arriving at our room. Since the resort is so large it is not easy to get issues resolved in a timely manner. The staff seem to work on a very slow pace of “island time”. It was shocking after spending much time in Mexico and receiving top notch treatment to find this semi lack of concern.

Best vacation ever!

This hotel was above and beyond what I could ever imagine-we loved our stay and will definitely be staying at the Paradisus Punta Cana in the future! The resort is clean and absolutely breathtaking. The staff is always friendly, kind and welcoming. There were two gentleman at guest service that were fantastic and helped us out several times during our stay-their names were Tony Toribio and Esteban Astasio. They offer excellent service and Paradisus is very lucky to have them. They are the best!! Thank you for making our honeymoon a dream vacation!!

Excellent service

Amazing week spend at Paradisus Punta Cana
Sat Feb 16 03:10:44 EST 2019
My wife and I have spent the first week of February at the Paradisus Punta Cana and this was one of the best weeks ever in an all-inclusive resort. We have stayed in more than 15 resorts in the past 12 years and this resort is by far the best we have stayed. First of all the people there are so devoted and always ready to help you. I spoke with gardeners, maids, servers, bar tenders and more and all of them were so nice and friendly even if my Spanish is limited. That being said, the Paradisus is an ECO friendly resort and you can see that when walking around. The garden is full of royal palm tree as well as coconut palm tree. Most of the trees were in flowers at this time of the year and it was really nice for the eyes. Lots of gardeners are working around to maintain this site at the top all over the place. As soon as you get there you feel like home. The customer service and people at the front desk are helpful and well trained which makes you get into vacation mood at the first minute you get there. The room are very nice and super clean. King size bed really comfy and two showers in the bathroom. We had a second floor room with a Jacuzzi on our balcony and this was a plus for that week (luxury junior suite). For dinner, this resort puts the accent on a la carte restaurant offering many different restaurants for every taste. Buffet are nicely arrange for the morning and lunch. For dinner they also have very good food at the buffet but more limited compare to other resort I have visited in the past but this was not a problem since you don’t have to use the buffet for dinner anyway. Go to a la carte restaurant and you’ll not be disappointed. The food is awesome in every restaurant. Special mention to the Fuego restaurant for their tartars and sushies, really awesome. As always in Punta Cana the beach is perfect and this resort probably has one of the best places on Bavaro beach as there is a lot of space between the palapas and the water. The pool is very nice and very well maintained every day. Overall, the ambiance at Paradisus has made this vacation week an unforgettable week and be sure that we will return to this resort no doubt. I would like to thank all the Paradisus staff for this amazing week. Muchas gracias y esperamos volver a verte pronto.
