Great escape from the Chicago snow
Posted Dec 16, 2016
We just got back from our short trip to the DR and loved every part about our stay at the Paradisus Punta Cana. We did not pay for the Reserve, and didn't think we needed to while we were there. We checked in on Sunday afternoon and stayed through Wednesday afternoon, and our room was a perfect distance to the beach, the staff was so friendly and attentive, the beach was kept in great condition and the food was surprisingly better than I expected. Neither of us had stayed at an all inclusive before and we couldn't have imagined a better experience. The only surprising part of our trip was the amount of children and families that were at our resort. If you're looking for a resort without kids, this isn't it. Even at late night dinners there were young children at some of the nicer restaurants. Tips for traveling would include buying the DR tourist card online before traveling, bring small bills for tips, and make reservations on the first day of your trip for the restaurants you want to visit.
