We stayed at the Paradisus the week of January 26th to February 2nd for our annual ladies getaway and were blown away by our experience! The resort is gorgeous, clean, and the service highly exceeded my expectations. Book the royal service!! It is well worth the extra money! Upon arrival we were quickly greeted and introduced to our butlers Francisco and Erik who made sure we had everything we needed for for the week. They were so accomodating and friendly! We found a tequilla at Blue Aguave that we wanted to purchase to bring home but wasnt for sale on the resort so Fransico offered to purchase it for us on his day off and bring it in for us!! Every single employee that we encountered on the royal side was amazing and always greeted us with a smile and went out of their way to make our stay special! Our favorite servers were Karina and Consuelo! They made our stay so much fun!
As for the restaurants your definitely not going to leave this resort hungry or thirsty for that matter.We enjoyed all of them but our favorites were Vento, Bana, and Tacos. Juan Carlos and Victor were our servers at Vento and they made the dining experience a BLAST! Probably the best service I've ever recieved anywhere!! Anotonio at Bana was fantastic also! Make sure to check out the blue aguave for tacos and tequilla tastings. We vacation quite often and my biggest complaint about a lot of the resorts is the food! Definitely not the case at the Paradisus!
The nightlife at the resort is great and fairly laid back. The Avenue Bar is a lot of fun and you can expect to meet a lot of fun people! Look for the server Danielle! She was so friendly, remembered our names from day one, and never left us thirsty! The Red Lounge is a little small but a good place for dancing! Make sure you find Gabriel and order a Mexican Baby Maker!! He was such a fun bartender and always made sure our drinks were full!!
When we first booked this resort we were a little weary because it was in a transition period from the Grand Melia to Paradisus but were so happy with the experience. The only thing I would suggest is playing a little more latin/vacation music throughout the resort! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!! We will definitely return!!
Side note!! Tip the employees!!! Yes it is all-inclusive but the employees work very hard and deserve a little extra!!
