This is one of those cases where you really wish zero stars could be granted to a business. If you travel to Paradisus Palma Real, please be prepared to deal with constant harassment within the resort and beach. There are literally dozens of illegal vendors everywhere offering people drugs and other illegal items. All of this as the resort staff/tourist “police” take bribes (literally, in front of you) and turn a blind eye. The quality of entertainment and food are beyond underwhelming, especially when compared to similarly-priced resort chains (i.e.: Excellence Resorts or Iberostar). The rooms are in very poor condition as well, with rust being present throughout most metallic items, including outside tub. The staff is rude and under-trained, again, especially when compared to the performance you find at comparably-priced resorts in the Punta Cana/Ubero Alto region. My one (and only) trip to this awful place ended on the second day. My fiancé and I had a nonrefundable reservation; this experience was so traumatic and disappointing that we decided to book a vacation on the fly for the remainder of our stay in the Dominican republic — at a resort we knew and away from this awful place. We ended up spending an extra $2200 to make the change, but it was money well spent to leave this place! Our advice is simple. Stay away at all costs; the experience and value at competitively-priced chains in the area is so overwhelmingly better.

Dear Eduard0j0aquinc, First of all, we would like to thank you for preferring us as your vacation destination at Punta Cana. At Melia Hotels International, we distinguish ourselves by providing an excellent service, where our guests feel at home. For this reason, we are sorry to realize that your stay did not meet your expectations and that your current impression is not the desired one. We extend our most sincere apologies and allow us to point out that what you have experienced is not representative of the quality that we are used to offering. Nonetheless, we think it is important to mention that we're aware that you have already contacted us via Facebook; Where our colleagues tried to provide you the proper assistance by asking you to share your reservation details with them. However, it seems to us that you are not very cooperative, which we regret very much. Once again, it would be a pleasure for us to assist you. Please provide us in a private message with your booking and contact details. Kind regards, Guest Service Center Management

Just thought I should let people know the Reserve is currently closed. If you are booked here, you will be moved to the Grand Reserve next door. The Palma Real is also closed for another week, and the Reserve won't be open until sometime in the new year. I had read about this in another review so had emailed the hotel a week before my arrival asking if the Reserve is open, and got a non-commital answer. Had I known we would be moved to the Grand Reserve, I might have changed my reservation as I specifically wanted to return to the Reserve. Allowing bookings for a hotel that is closed is bait and switch. Otherwise, the Reserve is a nice resort - I posted a review of it last year that you can find through my profile.

Dear Sophia, Thank you for preferring our property us your vacation destination. With great anticipation, since October 1st, Melia Hotels International has restarted its operations in the Punta Cana area. Our greatest desire is to create travel experiences for our guests that allow them to leave aside, for a few days, the various events that have occurred; for this reason, our Management has chosen to offer its clients, free of charge, a higher room category than that reserved in our The Grand Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real, a hotel that forms part of our portfolio of high luxury resorts. However, we understand that these free services or modifications cannot be carried out unilaterally or without prior notice. Therefore, part of our protocol in these cases is that our Commercial team contacts our clients to inform them of the change and make themselves available to them in case of any concerns. For this reason, we would like you to excuse us in the name of our commercial team if you have not been contacted before your arrival. Nevertheless, we hope you are spending a great time at our resort and enjoying the personalized service. Kind regards, Guest Service Center Management
