We just returned from the Paradisus in Cancun and had the most fantastic vacation we've had in many many years. It is a great romantic get away that is fun and exciting with lots to do or if you choose, not to do.
If you go, stay in the Royal section in building five. You have a private area for breakfast with no children around, but most important, you have a private pool and beach area. This really made our trip.
This private pool / beach area made the trip for us, specifically the pool attendant Vicente. He was extremely attentive to all of our needs, constantly checked on us to make sure we were comfortable, was very funny and very personable and extremely knowledgable of the area and history of the country. I am not a big tipper, but he is one person I enjoyed giving a tip to every day. He was fantastic and a major reason why we had such a nice experience. Every morning he greeted us with a big smile and often a funny joke to start the day off.
The rooms and the resort are very, very clean and everyone on the staff that we encountered were friendly and helpful. Vicente was our favorite by far, but we had no complaints about anyone there.
We highly recommend this resort and can't wait to go back!!!!
