Wow, what a great trip....
The Paradisus PC is the best resort we have ever stayed at.
From the 10 restaurants, clean rooms, friendly staff, AMAZING beach, there is everything you can need or want.
We traveled with our 11 year old and had no problems finding things for him to do. Included in our package was horseback riding, and scuba diving.
I want to thank the person that posted that we should ask for a room close to the pool! Boy, that really helped.
When we checked in, we requested a room in building 10 which is poolside with a balcony. They checked and said they could get us one but it would be a couple of hours to be ready but it was worth it.
(I tipped the guy because they don't have to give you a requested location)
When you stay there, you are steps from all the restaurants and beach. If you forget something in your room, no
So, ask for that location FOR SURE.
The food was great in all restaurants except the Chinese where it was nothing special. If you want to eat at the French, Japanese or "the Romantico", make sure to make reservations as soon as you get there.
Tips for the beach:
Every day there were towels layed on some of the best chairs under the shaded areas. We noticed that nobody EVER came to sit in those chairs day after day... ALL DAY.
The resort has a "no reserve policy" but most people don't know about it and will not sit in a chair with a towel.
If you don't see any personal items on a chair, I would take it and don't worry. I would even clear the towels off of chairs that had been there for hours to make room for others that were looking for good ones. My wife started calling me the "chair manager" :)
There is a Volleyball and soccer area on the beach and my son played for hours every day with other kids.
We will definitely be back!!
