Great experience overall! We stayed for five nights for a wedding and it was a beautiful stay. Everything was pristine and the design of the resort was very thoughtful. Fabian was a great concierge and super attentive to our needs (scheduling taxis and making reservations). The food here was great also! Much better than other resorts.

Hotel's Favorite
This place was amazing from beginning to end. As soon as we got to the check in, we were greeted happily with towels and driven to the La Perla side, where there were refreshments and snacks at the check in area. The staff was very friendly and accommodating all around. Some of the great staff that made this trip amazing are as follows: Francisco, our concierge was very helpful; texted us every day with daily events and took care of our reservations Manuel, our waiter at the Market. Alejandro and Rosinna, our waiter and waitress and Cappella. Teresa, our waitress at North Bar during the Silent Bar night. Angelo, our activities coordinator and bootcamp coach! Dora, "Chocla-Dora, Mi Amor, Dora the Explora", another activities coordinator, motivator, and pool workout instructor . Aquileo and Delmar, our waiters at Fuego. Juan Pablo, the chef at Feugo. Guadalupe, our waiter at Mole. All of these staff members were great! Also, the staff during breakfast who graciously served me sliced avocado every morning! All the restaurants were amazing and as a vegan, I was very impressed. All 11 of my girlfriends were big meat eaters and during dinner, they made a very special meal to accommodate me. I am very grateful for The Market, Mole, Fuego, and Cappella chefs who made it possible for me to enjoy dinner with my friends. This place was beautiful, fun, and relaxing! I would definitely come back!

All my congratulations to Chef Pablo on Fuego Restaurant inside Paradisus. From the super interesting starters (we chose the Octopus Ceviche and the Shrimp Chupe) to the incredibly tasty main dishes (one Grilled Octopuss and one Tenderloin) and finishing with a more than pleasant chat with the Chef himself. From all the restaurants on the hotel complex, definitely the best on our experience.

This place is excellent! From the exquisite rooms, full of amenities, luxury bath products, jacuzzis (yes, one inside and one on the private terrace!!!) through the great dining options and bars, it’s fantastic. The service is incredible!!! Everyone is courteous, attentive and efficient. They know their trade and are happy to assist with everything. You’ll feel welcome here. The suite even included private concierge service and she made our stay easy and wonderful. Thank you, Rossana!!! My only complaint is that the night entertainment is very limited. They have live music and djs, but only from 9 to 11pm. They explained that used to be until 2am but, due to the covid, it has been shortened. I really don’t get the point because the risk of contagion is the same, specially because not having more options, just makes the few available more crowded, since people want to not miss those two hours of dancing and fun. Going back to the positives, there are many pools(including semi- private ones) and areas for families and adults. The beach was beautiful and clean. They have lovely cabins for rent which includes the most amazing seafood or meat “parrillada”. There are also plenty of umbrellas and lounge chairs all around. Now, the beach service team is just out of this world, specially Antonio, who’s service and charisma exceeded all our expectations. Great job, Tony!!!! We are definitely coming back to this piece of mexican heaven!
