FACT - My family has been to this resort 2 years in a row and have NEVER been ill and only knew a few that were. Our first year someone on our plane had the flu, sick and all and some people ended up getting the flu from him. This man and his family did not want to cancel their trip.
FACT - We use common sense when we are travelling in 3RD WORLD COUNTRIES... DO NOT DRINK WATER COMING OUT OF TAPS!!!! Brush your teeth with bottled water. Common sense people!
FACT - Palma Real is new to the North American tourism. They are trying but you will not get the same service as in Cancun, Cuba or any other Caribean destination. Go to Cancun if you want this!
We LOVED this place. We are a family of three with not a lot of money for a vacation. Palma Real is cheap and within our budget. They have problems I know but READ people. Read everything and make up your own mind. That's what we did but hey we really want to go to India and I'm sure most people would not be able to handle the cultural different there.
PLEASE do not make your choice on just a few good reviews. Read every one of them. Sit down with the Pros and Cons. That's what we did.
This hotel is best for people that want to White Water Raft, Zip Line, Hike and Kayak!
