Best vacation for our family

Beautiful grounds, amazing staff- happy, welcoming, friendly. Endless pools. Not fighting for chairs at the beach or the beach. We stayed at the reserve & didn’t need the family concierge. We had Augustin who was automatically assigned to us when we checked in. He set up all our dinners, golf, tennis, spa treatments as well as organized our check out & ride to the airport. We took full advantage of the great drinks ( real alcohol- not watered down) good food at the buffets as well as in the restaurants. We really liked the restaurant Raw- steak house. However the best food was at Passion. Unbelievable food experience! There is a charge for this place but well worth it (The drinks are included). It started with the bartender (Starky). He is very creative, and passionate about his drinks & the drinks are outstanding. He truly made the best drinks I have ever had! The food at Passion was over the top amazing. We did the tasting menu paired with the wine tasting. The service was 5 star. White glove service, synchronized service of meals & drinks. We couldn’t have a better dining experience anywhere. Luis Rubio was our main waiter & he orchestrated the other 3 servers for our table. (We had a table for 4). Also the sommelier was spot on with the wine & the information about the wine. The best family vacation ever!

Excellent family vacation

We went 4 adults, 5 days 4 nights. Food, drinks and service we’re amazing and I would highly reccomend getting the concierge service. We had Augustin who made the vacation effortless and really helped with every single question we had and truly made the vacation even more relaxing. We had also gone to the resaurant passion which had, like the rest of the staff at this hotel, unmatchable service. Highly reccomend heading there if you’re okay with spending a little more. It is definately worth footing the bill. The bartender Starky is simply the best bartender I have come across and we’re from New York! This was just the perfect place for the 4 of us to get away from our crazy lives and just relax. Definately one of the best vacations highly highly reccomend staying here!!!

Perfect family vacation

The service was amazing everything was very easy to do the weather is always nice our concierge guided us the whole way and set up reservations every night at the time we wanted. All the food was amazing and because everything inclusive everything was fantastic. Our guide Augustine was fantastic he was so nice and he told us what to do and what we could do everyday. I would last night we went to Passion which is a little expensive but the best food I’ve ever had the bartender Starkey was amazing and creative with his drinks.

Never fails to impress

The Service was great, as usual with Paradisus hotels. Many family activities, clean pools, beautiful beaches. Rooms were cleaned impeccably and food was delicious. Some but not many options for those with dietary restrictions.

NOT a 5 Star Hotel as listed by many.

To be fair to some employees working there I have to say that there are some very good, hard-working people working at Reserve portion of the hotel. Most of the employees, however, are mismanaged, in fact, management gets 0 from this review. The main lobby should have someone fluent in English working with guests, if I pay full rate at a 5-star hotel I should not have been asked if I speak Spanish. The hotel room was worn and a lot of components needed service badly. It is a shame as this hotel had nice rooms at some point not now. Shower door was liking water, toilet didn't flush properly, balcony door didn't close, the front door lock was not working properly, in fact, they have given us used worn cards for a front door first time in my experience I have seen that in a hotel of this class.... the list goes on. Food was ok not great. Kids zone was great but a lot of small elements didn't work, pool area the same experience substandard not a 5 star maybe 3 at best. Beach and pool, in general, I could not find someone to help with towels. Again hate to write this bcs there are some really good hard-working people there who strive to help but majority needs a lot of training on customer service.
