Sweet, Sweet Deal!!!!! First time in Puerto Plata, and I would definetly return to both Puerto Plata and the Hotel. We flew with Jetsgo, and I honestly have no complaints about the airline. I have had good and bad experiences with many different airlines, you get your good flights and bad flights. The airport in Puerto Plata was great. We... More

Two friends and my self enjoyed the Paradise Beach Club from April 27th to May 3rd. My experience is quite different than many of the other reviews I have read. First of all I never heard of any of the rooms being over booked. The minute you walk into the hotel you are handed a drink, you receive your package... More

My wife and I decided to be spontaneous and go on a week vacation somewhere tropical and we got a really awesome deal for the Paradise beach club May 9-16. Reading all of the reviews we were absolutely terrified and were not expecting anything when we got there. But we figured we will get what we paid for and that... More

I recently vacationed at Paradise Beach Resort in Puerto Plata, D.R. AND was disappointed by my stay. I had no qualms about revisiting Puerto Plata as I had stayed at Fun Royale - Carribean Village 8 years ago with my family and enjoyed the stay and the hotel and the Dominicans were very friendly. This time however I was extremely... More

I had a wonderful time staying at Paradise Beach in Puerto Plata. The people there are so friendly, to name a few: Gladys at the reception, Mario at Michaelangelo's A La Carte Restaurant and a few others working at the buffet (dont know their names). Although the room smelled musty, it was inevitable because of the humid weather. A tip... More

It was my first time ever to travel to Dominican Republic. There were four of us in a group. My 14 year old daughter and two other friends. We had a great time. The hotel was really nice and the food was great, depending on what you like to eat. The breakfast food was the best. The weather wasn't to... More

We just returned from the DR and our stay at the Paradise Beach Club in Playa Dorada (April 19-25). After reading several of the reviews here on this site we were more than a little worried about what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. Over all, we found the staff at the resort very helpful, friendly and eager to... More

I was at Paradise Beach Resort from April24 to May1. It was a lovely vacation for the price. It was my first time to a Carribean Resort so I try to write mostly facts, not too much opinion: -clean rooms and well kept pool and beach -friendly hard-working staff -poor food, I ate pasta, rice and bread and still had...
