“Wonderful Resort Vacation”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

We traveled to the Paradisus for a seven day vacation in February 2012 and it was WONDERFUL. The food was excellent - better than any all-inclusives we have done previously. The staff was wonderful and went out of their way for us at every turn. Karla (reservations desk) was a god send and made everything easy and stress free! The room was out of this world - everything in the resort is gorgeous. The only downside was the beach itself was small and covered in seaweed but we are not really big sand people anyway, so it didn't put a damper on anything for us. We would DEFINITELY go back to this resort. There was no need at all for royal service - our room and service was stellar. It was fantastic. Heaven. The decor is perfect down to even the smallest detail - clean, well kept, beautiful. There is nothing we could possibly complain about.

We stayed at the Paradisus in December 2011. We opted for the royal service and were not disappointed. It was our 4th stay in Playa and definitely our best so far. Edwin was our butler and he went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. Gener at the Royal service restaurant went to great lengths to make sure we enjoyed every meal. The food was dynamite! my only complaint was the beach was a bit rocky when you went in the water but they were working to improve the resort every day. Beautiful resort, fantastic food, and first class service!

Room Tip: Spring for the Royal Service, its worth it!

I travelled at the Paradisus from Jan. 18-25th, although I have already provided my review on the Esmeralda section, we were able to visit and eat on the Perla Side as the food throughout the resort was wonderful.

The only downside was the coupons we received for attending their presentation. We wanted to use the coupons for the spa which were US dollars but it was never applied as the front desk before leaving. The lady at the desk said she will apply it but it got too confusing since the hotel bill was in Pesos and we have very little time until our bus came to pick us up. When i got home and looked at my visa account there was a charge of the full amount for the spa (2 massages and 2 facials for almost $600 US) That is very over priced.

You can view a video review on Youtube under Bookit.com. I was interviewed by them and i can be seen at 4:34 and 5:22. Type in Paradisus La Esmeralda and La Perla

Stayed at the resort in February 2012 and found it to be so beautiful that it was almost unreal. The whole resort even smelled wonderful. I would recommend the pork tenderloin at Fuego if you stay here. Enjoy!

Room Tip: I would recommend a room that is on the top floor and faces east for views of the gulf.

The hotel opened in November, we were there in December so there was still work to be completed. It is a beautiful hotel, very South Beach , five star feel, modern, beautiful furniture, gorgeous pool (the water was quite cold)
, friendly staff. The food and a la carte restaurants were top notch, some of the best we have ever had at an all inclusive, also try the martini bar, the mixologist makes wonderful martinis, all kinds. You definetely get the five star treatment from the staff, very nice.
The breakfast buffet was amazing, lots of variety,first class ingredients.
Downside was that the room had not been properly cleaned and finished after construction, still dust and plaster in places and we heard the same from other people. The vegetation is brand new so you don't get the feel of a lush and tropical environment, gardens, etc. which i love. You cannot see the water anywhere from the restaurants or the pool, or anywhere from the property unless you are up. The beach is protected by mangrove so there are trees separating the hotel from the beach. The best part of the beach is on the family side of the resort, we were on the adult side (La Perla) and it was very rocky and dangerous with sharp rocks.
