This hotel however was boring. Rude maid. No atmosphere and average food. Absolutely boring. The best day at resort other than when away at... More

We enjoyed our vacation very much. The beach and grounds are beautiful! The evening entertainment was very good, great outdoor shows. During the day it was pretty quiet but this was no fault of the staff as being a couples resort and only about 25% full, it wasn't very animated. This was fine by us as we were there to... More

The quality of all the food was excellent, whether it was room service, the hilltop restaurant or the Japanese restaurant. Despite... More

This was a perfectly reasonable hotel and I didn't have any major issues however there was certain things which made this stay less than perfect -the variable standard of staff-some were great and very helpful (Rueban deserves a shout-out) whereas others were plain rude and just could not be bothered (the woman in the computer room deserves a special mention)...

We stayed for a week at Paradisus Princesa del Mar Royal Service ("RS") and it was overall great. Seriously, the price difference of RS vs normal hotel is 100% worth it.
