I went in Feb 2007, with 21 people and had a great time. Going with a large crowd was good because there was always someone to do just what you wanted to do. The beach was awesome, the pool was great too. Enjoyed doing the water aerobics with Sexy Blackie. Enjoyed the entertainment with Chicken Legs too.The staff are very... More

Hola! My mom and I just got back from Paradise Beach club and we had an incredible time! We were nervous booking "the attic room" but in the end it was much better than expected. Your key is to a door on the 3rd floor. Once through the door you walk up a spiral staircase and then there are doors... More

At first we got there and they gave us a regular room. I must admit it was dark, and right outside the kitchen from the buffet so all we heard was the stove fans so we where not impressed. I mean if you never are in your room only to sleep hey save the little bit of money and get... More

I have to say excellent for the rating of the Paradise Beach Resort because the staff and the beach were simply the best. I have never met a staff more willing to please in all my years of traveling. I know that this resort is only a 3 !/2 star resort but the staff and the beach in my opinion... More

Just got back from this resort, was really nervous prior to arriving because of some of the reviews, but for what you pay it was really worth it. We had an attic room, not great, but with patience it all worked out fine. The food was OK, after a few days we went to Pizza Hut, I recommend this just... More

My girlfriend and I had tons of fun at this resort. It is probably the oldest resort in Puerto Plata, and you can tell. The rooms are outdated (Just like most of the hotels in third world countries). This didn't affect our trip in the least. The room was always clean, and the staff were always friendly and accomodating. The... More

I’ve been to Paradise Beach Resort from the 17th of Feb till 1ste of March 2007. Checking reviews before I got worried where I would end up.

Just wanted to say that it's not as bad as a lot of people say, sure the rooms are a little old but if you upgrade to the superior or junior suite from booking it's definitely better (they will charge more for an upgrade there), plus you really don't spend a lot of time in the rooms. I went with... More
