Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real

Hi! I am close to booking a stay at the Reserve and need help understanding how it is different from the Paradisus Palma Real.

1. If I stay at the Reserve, I use the Reserve facilities and those of Paradisus Palma Real? (Including the restaurants, casino, etc. of the main resort?)

2. Is the Reserve beach easily accesible from the Reserve pool area?

3. How easy/difficult is it to get to the main hotel( I read in one the reviews that you had wait for a while to get golf carts!)

4. Why should I choose the Reserve over Paradisus Palma Real

5. Any good rooms/room types we should be on the lookout for?

6. How are the Reserve restaurants as opposed to the mail hotel ones?

(We're two families with 3 young kids going the week of Dec15th-22nd).

All help is greatly appreciated!

Hi G3s!

We are headed to Paradisus Palma Real on Nov. 1st - traveling with 3 children. I will try to help based on what I have been told and/or read.

1. Yes - when staying at the Reserve all facilities at PPR are at your disposal.

2. All beach areas are in the same area just separated as Royal Service, Reserve, or PPR and is about a 10 minute walk from the Reserve or you can be shuttled by golf cart.

3. It should probably take crust shy of 10 minutes to walk to the main hotel as it is before the beach from what I understand.

4. From what I have read it seems that people seem to be a bit happier with the service in general at the reserve.

5. Rooms at the Reserve are more contemporary and I am not sure if they are as spacious. We chose the PPR or main hotel because I like the amount of square footage of the 2 bedroom master suite ( We do not want to be on top of our children on vacation - we need the space).

6. There are not as many restaurants in the Reserve, but reviews seem to be good.

Hope that helped a little!

The reserve is the best resort we have stayed at in 6 times to PC in terms of food quality, service, rooms, bedding, comfort... Pretty much anything.. We also have stayed in the main hotel Palma real. We won't hesitate to go back to either but prefer the reserve. The beach is a very nice 10 min walk from the reserve area... There were always plenty of golf carts coming and going but I never used one.. I would grab a dink and take a walk. Nice land scaping, birds, flowers, trees etc to look at on the way. I actually looked forward to the walk every morning. I think the previous poster answered your questions but if you have more let me know...
