“La Palapa in Paradisus Punta Cana”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

We ate at La Palapa in Punta Cana Paradisus Resort for lunch for 6 days and 1 night for dinner. the experience thanks to Nathanael Perez the Guest Service Manager was excellent. Nathanael saw us the first day we were there and stopped us to help us and we so needed that! He took good care of us and helped to make our trip unforgettable! The service and wait staff at La Palapa there was unreal! They so deserve a vacation like we had themselves. They made us feel like royalty and they made our vacation wonderful...If it were not for them, we would not have had such great meals and wonderful service. To name a few would be......the waiters Jahaffrey and Juan Schillaci.. They so made sure we were comfortable at all times and served us like we were the queen and king of Punta Cana. Also...the hostess at La Palapa Yahaira Rosa was unbelievable to us....she sat us everyday at whatever table we wanted and made sure that our service and seating was great! She really did care that we enjoyed ourselves and she made our day, each and everyday by seating us with a smile and caring about our experience. Anything we wanted...she was there...we loved her. Also..there was Kintina at La Palapa that waited on us also and made our day very special...She always had a smile on her face and just made us feel so special and I wanted to take her home with me We loved her......You are very lucky to have all these people that I mentioned working for the resort...we will definitely be back looking for them! BUT this all would not have happened if it were not for NATHANAEL PEREZ. He was the reason that we met all these wonderful people and the reason that we WILL be back on another vacation at Paradisus Punta Cana hopefully very soon. Like I said, Nathanael found us and helped us on our wonderful journey at this great resort.....he is the reason for our happiness there and he checked in with us every so often and even called us at our room the day we were leaving and said goodbye and helped us print our boarding passes to make our exit easier at the airport....I have so much more to say but just wanted to let you know that we so enjoyed our stay there because of Nathanael and his wait staff that I mentioned....

Thank you, Yahaira, Juan, Yasuris Jahaffrey and Kintina...you were all the best! Along with of course NATHANAEL PEREZ. XOXOXOXOXOXO Please make sure they all get recognized for their excellent service and personal being....thank you...Tommy Mainella and Donna Mignone.......

“Relaxed luxurious atmosphere! Attentive staff! Great food!”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

My first impression of La Palapa was the atmosphere which was luxurious, yet relaxed. Something only a nice open-air restaurant on a tropical beach can offer! The staff was friendly and helpful, and the chef, Jorge, that prepared our meals took special care on both presentation and taste. The entire experience was fantastic! I highly recommend La Palapa!

“Amazing location and food combined”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

The restaurant is nestled between Punta Espada Golf Course and Eden Roc at Cap Cana Hotel Beach Club. The surroundings are amazing, the setting is open air and perched close to a point overlooking the ocean and a small inlet with clear blue water and a small white sand beach, while the other side is rocky with waves crashing against. The service was impeccable while the wine selection was vast and the food was mucho excellente! I will definitely return here if I am ever back in the Dominican Republic!
