We booked a Jr Garden suite at Paradisus Punta Cana and were upgraded to The Reserve for what reason we do not fully understand - had a bit of a check in issue due to not having the correct voucher from AAA so perhaps that's why. I suspect we were picked as possible targets to listen to a sales pitch (90 min long!) from the vacation club within the resort. It wasn't 100% clear that we were signing on for this as language was a bit of a barrier. Not worth your time, do NOT agree to do it. They offer a free $40 voucher for the only restaurant you have to pay for on site, but we did not receive ours. Anyway, we thought we were meeting someone to give us a tour of the whole resort and an overview of what was where - which actually would be a nice thing to do, but nope - sales presentation.
We have become friendly with a few of the folks at The Reserve (which we highly recommend upgrading to if you can). The Gabi club and restaurant are at the Reserve - convenient and nice. Same food basically as everyhwere else, but better ambiance.
Miguel Perez, Welding Davis and Luis Santana are three of the nicest bartenders ever at the
Gabi bar. Luis also works around the Reserve pool during the day. Others are very nice as well, but these guys as well as Josway (I didn't get his spelling right I know, but it is Joseph in English) were our "go to guys". Josway has a tiny bit of grey in his hair at the forehead. These are the folks we felt comfortable with and they always recogninzed us - were most accommodating. Tips are appreciated, but no pressure.
Beautiful beaches - if you like the resort type of vacation with all inclusive this is very nice. Translation booklets would be nice to offer - take your own.
