    great location- walking distance in Avalon to everything. Clean, friendly staff, no view of water from room but literally right across the street was the water- so no complaints. Free breakfast in the morning, provided beach chairs, towels if needed, as well as free wifi.

    My husband and I are considering visiting Paradisus La Perla as our family vacation next year and have a few questions regarding rooms and activities for small children. Our son will be 3 when we visit and he is a very active 3 year old. What amenities/facilities do you offer for little ones and their families? We are considering the Family Concierge service, what extra amenities/facilities does this offer over regular room types? Are there snack and meal options catered to little ones available? Thank you in advance for any information you can provide. Regards, Christi
