Resort's customer service and cuisine are lacking, some say
Paradisus Punta Cana Resort takes its Bávaro Beach location in Punta Cana seriously, with the surrounding landscape inspiring the resort's decor. The all-inclusive property's public spaces are open and airy, constructed from local materials and brightened by indigenous flora. Suites come equipped with LCD TVs, sofa beds, stocked minibars, free Wi-Fi access and private balconies or terraces. Paradisus Punta Cana also encourages its visitors to enjoy the resort's setting: Take advantage of unlimited green fees at the Cocotal Golf and Country Club, indulge in a treatment at Yhi Spa, relax by one of five swimming pools or head to the beach for some kayaking or sailing. Visitors can also use some of the amenities available at The Reserve at Paradisus Punta Cana, the resort's adjacent sister property. When its time to eat, Paradisus Punta Cana offers nine dining venues that serve a mix of cuisines, including Mexican, Argentinean, Mediterranean and Japanese. Most past guests enjoyed their stays here, although several report outdated decor (in standard suites), mediocre food and slow service from the resort's staff.

Critic Reviews



Paradisus has many innovative amenities while also exuding a charismatic quality – like vintage wine – that produces the warm feeling that makes for loyal, repeat guests. Big-league improvements have continued at this long-established resort, which has sometimes struggled to keep pace with the competition.

Fodor's Choice


The largest of four Paradisus resorts in Punta Cana, this 683-room property still manages to feel uncrowded due to its expansive grounds. Guests can expect to walk or hitch rides on the regular shuttle service to get to the beach, pools, luxury spa, yoga studio and impressive restaurants around the resort; there are also bike stations for those who prefer to cycle.
