Fodor's Review

Paradisus has so many new, 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, and this long-established resort, struggled to keep pace with the newer competition. The new edgy, beach restaurant complex is strikingly handsome with Naos, the buffet section having the latest of everything, even show cooking. The bar decor is whimsical—you may never get another chance to sit on the back of a wooly sheep with a cocktail in your hand. Even better is the adjacent La Palapa (for Royal Service guests), a global culinary experience with even foie gras terrine as a starter. Gabi Beach Club houses an international, trendy buffet and it looks out to one of several stunning pool complexes. Passion is the super-star restaurant (not included) that will be a romantic evening, and a verbal and edible lesson in contemporary cuisine. Within the main resort, the

junior suites have been renovated in a neo-Caribbean style, with some leather and lame accents. "The Reserve" is the exclusive, family-friendly, luxury enclave that is a big plus. The adults-only Royal Service option is worth the money, too, and you can brag on your butler. With the borrow-a-bike plan you can roll throughout the manicured grounds.
