The Paradisus in Cancun was the first all inclusive trip for my boyfriend and I. We opted to upgrade to the Royal Service and I have absolutely no regrets!! Hector was our personal butler and he was pleasant and very courteous. He was very helpful in helping us get acquainted with the hotel and the concierge was useful in helping us make our dinner reservations every night. The hotel itself is gorgeous! It has the aesthetic of a mini-jungle when looking from the main lobby and all of the restaurants and rooms are very clean, well-kept and beautiful. Every inch of the hotel that I explored was beautiful. The Royal Service side of the hotel was very beautiful as it had it's own pool and cabanas for Royal Service guests.
Our first night we opted to try Mole which served Mexican cuisine. I personally did not like the food served at this restaurant but the waiter was very pleasant and the food was served very quickly. The next restaurant w tried was Bana, Japanese cuisine. The fried calamari and dipping sauce was superb and the chicken teryaki roll and shrimp tempura roll were awesome!!! The Market grill was my favorite. The grilled meats were excellent and the side dishes were well seasoned and tasty. Everyday, we ate at Naos for breakfast and popped in occasionally when we wanted a snack throughout the day. The orange juice was freshly squeezed and by far the best orange juice I have had since I was a child. The coffee was excellent and there was a wide range of breakfast items to choose from.
In the Royal Service, we were able to book our own personal cabana every day if we wanted or just hang out in the main pool or on the beach if we preferred. The pool boys, Sergio and David, were very friendly, courteous and helpful. The service at the Paradisus was, in all, excellent. Everyone was friendly and very accommodating.
I must say that the hotel was very organized in all of it's undertakings. Checking in was a breeze, so was checking out. I was very impressed by the level of organization and the excellent level of service that we received during our stay. It far exceeded my expectations. Additionally, I had a 50 minute relaxing massage at the spa and it was excellent.
I cannot wait to return to this resort. I hope that all of the people that I met during my stay will still be there when I go back. I recommend this resort highly and if I could give it more stars, I definitely would!!!
The Paradisus is a paradise on earth!!!!
