Overall we were very pleased with our stay. The staff were all very helpful even those that really didn't speak English. Food was okay - some better than others. However if you are not a seafood eater your choices are limited. You can find things, just not a lot of variety. The room was great. Comfortable beds and 3 nice closets. The towels are huge both in the bathroom and at the pool. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. The pools were great. The main pools are 5 foot deep, so if you are short be prepared. I am tall so it was wonderful. And there are tanning lounges built into the pool - ooh so nice. Bring pool toys and blow up rafts. At the Reserve we could find lots of places to lay out either in the sun or in some shade. There are tons of comfortable lounge chairs and beds. And most of the time you could find places with no one else around. It was pretty quiet . Friday and Saturday were a little more crowded. I read some reviews before going that said to bring long sleeves to keep away the bugs. I disagree. It is too warm for that. We did have a few mosquitoes - just bring some bug spray. They weren't bad. To tip or not? We did some. We saw a few others that did, but I don't think many others did. The beach is at the Paradisus Palma Real, a short walk or quick golf cart ride away. And you could almost always find a cart ready to take you. Plenty of places to lounge on the beach but there wasn't tons of seats around the pool over there. However, as a guest at the Reserve you have access to a separate pool over there and it was easier to find seating at it. We did not do the Royal Service, things were pretty nice without it.
