We loved our family vacation here! If you are looking for a family friendly vacation, where everything is taken care of for you, and all you have to do is enjoy your kids, then i highly recommend this resort. My husband, 3 & 8 year old boys, and myself spent 2 weeks at the resort. There was something for everyone. We all equally enjoyed our time.
First off, the food was great. There was definitely something for every taste bud. The all you can eat buffet was huge. The food was well prepared and the menus rotated daily. They even had a simple and adorable kids buffet. Plus there were 3 separate "order from a menu" restaurants. We tried them all. We liked the Italian the best. And, on top of all that, there were multiple drink and barbeque bars. So you never went hungry or thirsty.
The pools and outdoor areas were great. There were three pools to choose from. And an adults only hot tub and cold pool with a walk up bar. We each had our favorite pool. One of the largest pools was heated! I'm always cold so this was my favorite. And of course, the boys loved the kid pool with the pirate ship and water slides. The resort was right on the beach. The beach wad clean and security was always near by. Since it was the second to last resort on the beach, there weren't a lot of non guests walking by. There were plenty of lounge chairs with umbrellas. You may not always get they chair closest to the ocean, but you could always find a nice place to set up and watch the kids swim.
The rooms were a little outdated and in need of some upgrading. But we spent so little time in them, it really didn't matter to us. We stayed in one of the Family Rooms. It had a bunk bed and extra tv that the kids loved. And the bathroom was newly remodeled with a huge shower. The rooms seemed well insulated and quiet.
Finally, the best thing about our visit was the people. The staff were all friendly and helpful. They were all kid loving and understanding. We have two rambunctious boys. The staff never frowned when they went running through the halls or under the feet of the waiters. They always joked and laughed along with them. You could tell they were used to it. And the resort was filled with other like minded kids and parents. It was a place for kids to be kids. My sons made friends from all over the world. It was a great experience. And the staff loved to teach them Spanish words. They came back speaking some Spanish. It was great.
Because the resort is full of kids and staff everywhere, I felt incredibly safe. My oldest son would love making friend and running off with them. The staff made him feel important and treated him as his own person, not just "some kid". My son was able to order his own food and drinks, shop at their store, and ask for help all by himself. At times, we wouldn't see him for a couple hours, and I never worried about his safety. I knew if he was ever in trouble, there was plenty of staff, and friendly families, around to help. I noticed strangers stepping in to help other strangers all they time. It's a very family and neighbor oriented country. Such an amazing country! I love that we are neighbors!
Finally, I have to give a huge and warm thank you to two of the servers that always went above and beyond with our family. Thank you Acton and Daniel (Danny) You two made our stay feel like a second home! I hope we see each other again!
We will definitely be coming back to Crown Paradise again!
