Overview

Family-friendly resort within a megaresort with a private pool, kids club and spa, just a 10-minute walk from Punta Cana’s white sand beach

The Look

Spread over 96 acres, the Paradisus Punta Cana is bisected by a sprawling tropical mangrove marsh. Given the natural surroundings, the hotel decor aims to bring the outside in: The lobby is an open-air pavilion flanked by palm fronds, trellised plants and rich mahogany or rattan furniture. On the opposite side of the marsh, the beachfront restaurant complex has the look of an upscale nightclub, with white cabanas, gilded accents and cheeky lamb-shaped benches. Double beach beds and colorful light sculptures give the adjacent Gabi beach club a loungey, Miami flair.

Bed and Bath

Unlike the design-oriented lounges and restaurants, the room decor is subdued and contemporary, with subtle Japanese-inspired touches such as orchid photographs and sliding screen doors. Each of the 170 suites comes with cushy bathrobes, Thierry Mugler bath products and a minibar. All rooms — even the smallest category, the 609-square-foot Master One-Bedroom Suites — have double whirlpool tubs and balconies or terraces. The Reserve consists of eight villas that share an intervilla concierge service; consult them if you need dinner reservations, spa appointments and the like.

Beyond

In addition to the hotel’s seven pools (including a lagoon-like main pool and two reserved for children), the Reserve’s main draw for families is the Kids Zone, a children’s clubhouse with a rock wall, bounce house, arts and crafts station and even an infant nap room. Book a treatment at the Yhi Spa, a Zen enclave with palapa-style treatment rooms and a tribal statue–dotted pool area. Of the 12 restaurants at the resort, three are specific to the Reserve — but it’s worth heading to the five-restaurant complex in the main resort, which has a hip spread of international cuisines. There’s also a top-notch gym, a casino, four tennis courts, rotating daily classes and a varied roster of nightime entertainment.

In the Area

The Paradisus is set along immaculate Bavaro Beach, so there’s no need to pony up for snorkeling excursions — there’s a natural coral reef brimming with colorful aquatic life running along the turquoise coast right in front of the hotel. Don’t miss dining at Michelin-starred Martin Berasategui’s molecular gastronomy restaurant, Passion, at Paradisus Punta Cana. Though not part of the all-inclusive package, this Spanish celebrity chef’s seven-course tasting menu (priced under $100) is a scrumptious bargain. Golf fans will also appreciate the unlimited golf and zero greens fees at the Cocotal Golf & Country Club. If you’re looking for nightlife beyond the hotel grounds, locals love Akon’s Jewel Club.

One of the best resorts I have ever stayed in!!!
Dasmister

When I went to The Reserve at Paradisus Pinta Cana I was offered so many am duties and extra things with out even asking. They made sure that everything we needed was taken care of. I highly recommend you get Family Concierge if you go with family and if you go with only adults you should get Royal Service. There are little extra things that they do for you if you get these things. They assign people to help you with your every need if you get Family Concierge or Royal Service. The restaurants are exquisite and have very many different types of food. The beaches are beautiful and private only to the resort, you can rent cabanas a and the ocean waters are so turquoise you can all the way to the ocean floor!! I guarantee that if you stay at the Reserve at Paradisus Punta Cana you will have a very pleasant and enjoyful stay.

Property was great, beach clean, and the service from the staff outstanding. We are ready to go back. Received the best massage of my life. Four wheeling and the catamaran I would I recommend to all the vacationers.

If you are looking for a hotel that exceeds your expectations then this is the place for you. From the moment we arrived to the day we left we were treated like royalty. our concierge even followed up with us upon our return to London. very unexpected but a touch of class. The master suites are huge and ooze luxury, so much space, huge living area with sofa beds, a kitchenette, lovely bedroom with 2 queens leading onto a very spacious balcony with spectacular views. The bathroom has a large jacuzzi with separate area housing the toilet and shower. Rooms are cleaned daily and beds turned down. Our concierge surprised the kids each evening with little touches that made them feel special (jacuzzi balloon bubble baths, scented pillows and a whole personalised gift hamper on arrival). The restaurants are fabulous, all booked in advance by our private concierge; Passion restaurant is a must for the adults (an extra cost) but an experience you will not forget. The resort is huge and the shuttle service frequent to whisk you off to another breathtaking experience, you never feel crowded and the staff are amazing, the beach is just awesome although a lot of seaweed in the water. We were really impressed with the night entertainment at the theatre and main lobby, in our view this was a lot better than the beach bar / disco entertainment. The family concierge go out of their way to ensure you have an all inclusive holiday without any fuss. Beers and bubbles were delivered to our room on ice each night (at no extra cost), a private cabana at the pool was booked for our 10 night stay in advance which was pure bliss. A morning on the beach followed by an afternoon at the pool became the norm. the pool staff were amazing and provided activities each day (foam parties, water aerobics. paddle boarding, painting, candle making, dance classes etc....). A huge thank you to the staff for making our stay so memorable, in particular Sandra (our family concierge) - she is an angel and deserves special praise from her employers. Also a huge congratulations to Thomas who has nailed the superior hospitality that this hotel has to offer. I highly recommend this hotel, book it - you will not be disappointed!
