I have taken a long time to contribute to this site and the reason for this is that I could not come to terms with the meaning of 'total relaxation' and thought it was a figment of my imagination. You always come home from holiday a little despressed and it's hard to get back into the swing of every day life, but I'm still trying!!!! almost a year later!!!!
With a high pressured job, I had to have a good honeymoon, we arrived and were appalled at our room which was situated next to the pool. It was 4pm DR time and the pool arobics were beginning.
We got married the day before, hence we were shattered our 6yr old son was with us, we are the family after all.
The bed for our son was not in the room when we arrived and we were amazed that he was expected to sleep on a mattress that was not fit for a dog.
We were very calm, and walked around to the reception area, I explained our concerns and that we were on our honeymoon and expected better than this. They were fabulous, within 20 minutes they took us to another room on the opposite side nearer to the reception area, it had a living room, where our sons bed was already made, balcony, seperate bedroom, bathroom/shower/wc. and just outside of that a utility area which we could hand wash our smalls.
We did however have a problem with insect bites around our ankles in the beds?????
The room was cleaned on a daily basis and everyone was so friendly and 'chilled'.
Food was fantastic, pool, sea, snack bars, the bars,
everywhere was fab.
I have never been overseas on holiday and returned feeling as if I had been away for a month, but I did there.
Our only real complaint was the flight - cramped wasn't the word.
I desperatly want to go back, next time first class!
I would recommend Paradise to anyone, 4 star it is not, but it is very real, relaxed, happy, people smile and genuinely want to talk to you. Not like the rat race at home!!
