We stayed at the Paradisus, Cancun in the week of Nov. 18th, 2013. When we first arrived, the place smelled and looked amazing, the atrium is the nicest I've ever seen. Before all the positive stuff, I have to say that, we had somewhat of a hard time with our room reservations, we booked (and paid for) the family suite, but the room they led us to was not at all what was pictured on their website....we were pissed and needed to argue with the manager to get the room we paid for. They must have overbooked and tried to pull a fast one on us. Eventually and with much frustration, we got our room, one the first floor, with ocean view.
The rest of the hotel is very very beautiful, always clean and well maintained. The gym is nice, the spa is excellent (expensive) and the beach is super clean. If you are travelling with small children, be aware that the waves in Cancun are a bit rough, as for us, our 7 year old had to hold our hands when we went for a dip.
There are a couple of football sized pool, which are extremely clean and beautiful. The buffet food is very good and all restaurants are also deserving of high marks. The service is tops as well. We even experience the tequila tasting get-together, which was very well presented and I must say extremely interesting.
Overall, we were very happy about our stay at the Cancun Paradisus and would recommend it to others.
