After weeks of agonizing I finally settled on Paradisus Cancun for a 7 night trip. My first consideration was beach, then swimup pool bar, then restaurant selections. Beach came first because I was not going to the Caribean Sea to swim in the pool - and this beach did not disappoint! At check they ask you to attend a timeshare... More

Based on reviews and some personal inclinations, I opted for Paradisus Cancun. And boy did I make the right choice. What I was looking for is what I ended up with. Nothing can be perfect, so the small and minor issues that came along did not overshadow my love for this place. Lovely place, nice people(guests and staff), lots of... More

Great property. The hotel has a large foot print so the layout can be a bit overwhelming and confusing to navigate but once figured out, things are pretty centralized. The resort is clean and has some very unique features in terms of interior landscaping and design. The food overall was very good. The sushi left a little to be desired... More

Stayed here two years ago and have been wanting to return. This property is situated on the most beautiful beach I have seen---to include Hawaii. The staff is amazingly attentive and as happy as a ray of sunshine. We were originally booked for Family Concierge as I got a great deal on CheapCaribbean but they upgraded us to Royal Service....

The resort was fantastic! The room was nice and the view was beautiful. Being an all inclusive resort I had read reviews about the food not being so good at some other resorts so I chose this one and the food was great. The included room service and mini bar was a nice feature as well. The only complaint was... More

I am a huge fan of Paradisus resorts. We previously stayed at Paradisus La Esmerelda but this time chose Paradisus Cancun for several reasons. Paradisus Cancun allows access to all restaurants for children while Esmerelda was very restricted. Too many adults only dining. The staff at Paradisus Cancun were phenomenal in providing outstanding service. We were blown away by their... More

We booked Paradisus for a getaway over Thanksgiving. We found the staff very friendly and accommodating. Our room had a lagoon view -- more like a view of the entrance to the grounds, golf course and road. The room was well equipped and comfortable. When we checked in, we were told we had been upgraded to royal service which gave... More

The service was exceptional. Everyone we encountered were extremely friendly and courteous. Pablo at the buffet, Sophonia at the pool, Carlos at the tequila bar and the guy who works at the coffee bar (can't remember his name) were all servers we saw daily and they were all very nice and friendly and provided fantastic service.

This was a large and beautiful facility with many amenities. The staff was professional and very friendly. I would've rated 5 stars except the facility allows young children everywhere, including pool bar, bars and all restaurants. It was nearly impossible to relax. Would recommned adults only bars and adults only areas.
