Loved the Paradisus Punta Cana!! Any questions?

We just got back Wed. Nite Jan 25th from Paradisus Punta Cana.. Hubby and I were a little apprehensive after reading some bad reviews.

Don't hesitate to go. We loved every minute of it. We did do Royal Service and we got an ocean front room with a Jacuzzi.

The grounds of the resort are just beautiful. We loved the restaurants. It was great fun trying a different one every night. I would go so far as to say, even without the Royal Service we would have enjoyed ourself immensely.

The pool and pool bar is the greatest. Just hang around it, in the water and you will meet all kinds of interesting and wonderful people.

The greatest feature of the Royal Service was having your own personal "butler" fill the jacuzzi for a "romantic bath". They would fill the tub with bubble bath, spreading flowers and candles around the tub and bathroom . It was so romantic, and made just the perfect vacation. A truly wonderful thing for you husbands out there to surprise your wives....

In other reviews People complained about so many things we just never experienced. The staff were wonderful and attentive. The distance from the main building to the pool area was a nice little walk. What else do you have to do in the evening, walking off a fantastic meal...or you could just wait for the train that takes you all over the resort.

For anyone looking for a great beach, beautiful resort and great food, I highly reccomend the Paradisus Punta Cana.

I"m glad that you loved it. We will be going in March all 25 of us for my daughters wedding. I'm wondering if you did the malaria meds before going to Punta Cana? We did the Paradisus in 2004 and loved it too.

Hum...sounds great, I am leaving for the paradisus in about 8 days...this is for my anniversary and I am hoping everything works out well. I am going to attempt to use the butler service and "royal" service to my advantage...I want an "in room" couples massage...and dinner in the suite on the day of my anniversary...I'm brushing up on my spanish as I here that maybe a problem for some...but I'm keeping an open mind!

Did you play golf? Is the course open? Did you notice if you could rent clubs? Thanks

starkap,

Walking around the resort is easy. You shouldn't have any trouble. There are two seperate hubs....The main lobby that has the casino and where the shows are. Also several restaurants. Then closer towards the beach is another main area with more restaurants, the pool etc. The two areas are maybe a 10 minute walk apart. It really wasn't bad at all, we enjoyed the walk. If you don't feel like walking you can always jump on the open air carts that make continuous circles around the resort. You shouldn't have any trouble getting around. We just enjoyed strolling around. As you walk thru the beautifully landscaped areas, they play really relaxing music coming from the small little speakers so it is really enjoyable. Sounds just surround you. Have fun, I know it'll be great.

kapekodder,

We have been to the dominican repulic twice in the last 8 months. We were concerned about the malaria meds too, but we chose not to take them. We had no trouble with mosquitoes either time at two seperate resorts. I donn't think it's a problem but you might consult your physician. Take some bug repellent just in case.

MJE1230,

Not sure about renting golf equipment. I read a brochure that said you must have your own equipment, so we never checked but the day before we left, a coulple that did golf said you could rent golf clubs. They said the course was pretty good...that's about all the info I can give you. We didn't see it for ourselves. I wish I had checked it out sooner, we would have golfed...

Eglantine,

You wanted our room number, it was building #25 rm 1253. It was on the first floor with a balcony looking out on the beach and ocean. The second floor probably has a complete view, but we enjoyed where we were.

It's on the corner, so you also have a side window with a view. There are sand dunes between you and the beach, so it cuts the complete water view, but you still could see plenty. It was just gorgeous...
