Dont even know where to begin. Read so many reviews of this place before booking. They book everyone to the 4th floor then make you pay for the upgrade whether you have a physical disability or not. We tried to book a ground floor before getting there but they just kept saying it will be done when you check in....

This resort was better than I expected, I read the reviews and have to say most of the negative comments are from people that should not travel. The view from the beach is unbelievable, breakfast, lunch and dinner steps from the Ocean and the Mountains is worth every peso. The food was great in all locations edens, the buffet and...

Just got back on March 24th . Visited for 7 nights . The ocean is to die for . The view from the buffet or Edens is spectacular. Can't beat an ocean view for every meal. The food at the buffet was great and there was a good selection to chose from. The Italian restaurant was very good . Edens...

For the extra money it cost to upgrade to Club Select it was well worth it. We felt like royalty from beginning to end of our one week vacation in March 2017. The flight arrival time was excellent and we arrived mid afternoon. The trip from the airport was only 20 minutes. We were taken to a private area to...

We stayed at the Paradise 2 weeks out of 3 weeks we stayed in the Puerto Plata area in February/March 2017. I have stayed at many all inclusive resorts over the years (as my reviews can attest to) and in my opinion the resort is reasonably good for a 4 star and is in a wonderful location with many activities...

To start off, I was there for 10 days. After 3 days, about 400 teenagers from Toronto arrived and turned the experience horrible for all the other guests. I would say they were ranging from 15-19 years old, had no respect for anyone else, no manners, no class and acted as if the resort was their own big private party....
