Eye opening experience- for one, the only reason this property has high ratings is because of the sexy young activity leaders. Yes, it's beautiful, luxurious and clean. But, the pool was so cold hardly anyone got in, extremely limited pool/beach food options, huge inconsistency with service, never knew what activities happened at what time (missed 2 turtle releases, etc), bathrooms by beach unusable forcing a difficult hike, no ocean activities, and worst of all : every restaurant besides buffet requires reservations of which we could not get in a single place the entire week unless we wanted to eat at 9:30pm. (We arrived Saturday and by Sunday morning this was what we were told.) The Spa is very small, and wait for it- NO HOT TUB by pool! We are timeshare owners at VDP and wanted to see if we were missing out. What we missed was VDP. Tried to get released so we could switch resorts and Paradisus refused, forcing 6 of us to be where we didn't want to be, paying premium money to eat at a buffet every meal or crap on the beach. We will never come back nor will we ever recommend to friends/family. If it wasn't for booze, beauty, and a couple excellent servers the whole week would have been a complete bust! Feel ripped off!
