I just came back from memories flamenco.I was at paraiso with my daughter and sister back in may 2013
the good it has a beautiful beach one that I can equally compare to barcelo in the myan riviera( mexico) lovely sand ! ( no rocks)
rooms are clean even though becoming slightly our dated not bad
we were under the impression their was a 25 hour restaurant but only the bar was open .at that time it might of been because the hotel was not full they chose to have it closed.
at flamenco because it is a smaller resort the 24 hr bar serves as a restaurant too ,great idea!
what i did not like in may ( maybe they changed it was that the lobby/reception was not helpful !!! at all) my daughter just turned a year and after a couple of days she became very sick unable to breed and congested! i did not know where to charge my phone so I went to ask the reception/lobby with my sister ,on use of phone to contact insurance asap to help her.they seemed like I was bugging them ! they said they dont have collect calls on their phones(which is what manulife instructions say to do in health emergencies) i asked if I can pay them to use their phone they said "No",I would have to wait till morning till the fax and telephone office open to guests are available. no guests was at their front desks they were not busy but yet they acted like i was intruding
on their work time.
the other staff was generally good except for one a young small short woman who seemed to have her own agenda telling me she is going to bring gifts from home for me after only one minute of meeting me ( i found that highly strange you have not had a real conversation with me )anyways Thanks but i don't need anything I gave her a 10 cc tip.the next day she figured my daughter as she said had no "pappy" hmm yes she does I have a older son at home and been married and together with my husband since 96 lol but i was glad she went after the group of quebec women ( that i talked to ) and they even advised me they were trying to tell her they save for their trip and they are not rich .
anyways once i did the call to manulife i went to the hospital .
i was given only 3 day amoxixillin which everyone said was not a proper treatment here for my daughter ( she never was better there) could not sleep and puked the rest of the trip! on the bus to the airport and the plane as well.
I have no clue if paraiso as a medical facility like flamenco because when i aaked the lobby staff they just wanted me away.they had a tv they were watching and i guess i was interrupting.At memories flamenco my daughter as well as some other little babies became sick they were very much concerned !!! and helpful and even called me late to know if their was anything they can help her with.
memories paraiso can learn from Memories flamenco
paraiso is has the beautiful grounds (massive compared to flamenco) but needs to learn a bit from the pages of flamenco
now at paraiso I tipped over 300 cc ,my sister who can understand much more spanish then me overheard some staff (restaurant)say be nicer to the woman with the baby she tips well.
what I liked about flamenco is the staff is not sickly ( overnice to you) but nice .they do their job treat you well if they get a tip their thankful but even if they don't they don't treat you any less!
