I've booked the Reserve at Paradisus Punta Cana for my family - me, husband, and 3 boys, ages 16, 14, and 11 for spring break week in April. I made this decision rather quickly, which is so unlike me! I normally read and investigate ad nauseam before making final selection. I am now questioning my decision. First, while the Reserve ranks #3 on TA, the main resort is much lower - I think #43 - which concerns me. Second, we always like an ocean view from our room, and the Reserve section does not offer that at all, as it is set back pretty far away from the beach. Third, and I know this sound crazy, but my husband and boys always like to end the day in the hot tub, which I don't believe there are any of at PPC. Fourth, while the boys love a beach vacation - swim a little, lounge a little, and eat a lot! - after that they will be looking for something to do. Will there be enough activities to keep them interested? And finally fifth, PPC seems enormous and I may want a smaller property. Looking through the TA reviews, the NOW Larimar seems to be a better fit for us. Can someone who's been to either of these properties weigh in? Thanks!
