From the minute we walked into the lobby of the Paradisus we were meet with a wonderful staff of people from the Concierge to check in. The lobby had beautiful flower arrangements that were changed every couple of days and the greenery that hung from each floor was well maintained, Our room was spacious and the mini bar was stocked with cold drinks, beer , water and snacks. The buffet food was delicious and never boring. We use the pool in front of the buffet restaurant and were never without a cold beverage or any snack thanks to our waiter Sergio Mescro who took well care of us. The entertainment was great but the location where they performed could have been somewhere else were we did not have to sit on the stairs going down to the beach which were hard and uncomfortable, the Michael Jackson impersonator group was fabulous. My friend and I went to the SPA which was a wonderful experience calm and soothing, we spent a couple of hours there and were never rushed to leave by the staff. We truly had a wonderful time recommend Paradisus to our friends family and 1 has already booked it for December on our recommendation.

Room Tip: for the extra few dollars choose a room with the ocean view

This is our second time to Paradisus Cancun, and we booked the family concierge because the royal service area was out of commission. The check-in had a couple of hiccups - we had to wait a while to be shown to our room after we were given notification via what's app that it was ready, but not a huge deal. we had booked the lagoon view with the king bed, but when we got to our room, there was a very strong unbearable varnish smell.. instant headache. Our butler immediately got us another room, and upgraded us to ocean view, which we were thrilled with, but this room only had 2 double beds which we were told would be put together, but it never happened.. a little disappointing bc it was my husband and I's 4th anniversary. Besides this, we were very happy with our stay, and we got excellent service from our butlers, Gabriel and Fernanda. They both checked in with us daily to let us know when they arrived and offered us help every day, booked our dinner reservations and made our stay vey special with bottle service, chocolate covered strawberries and rose petals. They also helped our friends and my husband plan surprises for me. Our housekeeping was excellent.. there was a lady that came by with a cart almost every day asking if I needed extra towels. We were very pleased with with the friendly staff all over the resort, and were always greeted with a Buenos Dias with a hand over the heart.. Our favorite place to eat, same as last year, was la palapa.. the food was amazing, and the staff (Cesar, Eddie, Moises, Jorge, Daniel, Joel, Ignacio? And others- lady waitress and the waiter with the gold tooth), went out of their way to make our time enjoyable. They also served us on the beach and Came up and down the stairs so many times to check on us.. My feet were very swollen from the heat, and they actually brought me bags of ice so I would feel better. Other restaurants: bana- the sushi restaurant - amazing food and quick service. Beautiful ambience with the indoor vines and plants.. mole - authentic Mexican restaurant.. the food was very creative. had cappuccino bean soup in a mug and had froth on top so it looked just like a cappuccino.. also had pork with a delicious sauce and sides. My favorite thing there was the mariachi band. They came up to our table singing.. also excellent were fuego- Latin fusion, market grill - Brazilian steakhouse, enso- Thai food, and vento- Mediterranean food.
We liked to also go over to the coffee stand, gelato stand, royal service coffee area, and the swim up bar. entertainment was amazing.. we saw the Michael Jackson impersonator, the performers by the pool dancing, and the Mayan dancers. Cocos beach bar and the red lounge both had excellent service and friendly staff as well. I was also very happy to learn that the resort has a full time worker that releases the baby turtles.. I was lucky to be on the beach while one was being released. We also had hydrotherapy included, and went a couple days.. love the spa, aromatherapy and the shower jets.. as soon as you are in the vicinity of the spa, you can smell the citrus incense.. They have an area outside with the hydrotherapy with herbal teas, drinks, cucumbers and healthy snacks. Only complaints besides check-in.. the elevators smelled disgusting.. also, it is really hard to drink frozen drinks without a straw.. They werent available anywhere on the resort. Some of the frozen drinks and fruit juices had a very chemically taste, like there were artificial sweeteners. Overall, our stay was amazing and all of the staff went above and beyond and we would love to come back.

Well the place was nice along with the staff , one of the few downsides is the air conditioner, only your room has air , no ac in the restaurants . The other one is that someone came in my room and stole my money , once I called the security they came to my room asked me questions , they searched my room as well as my luggage making sure my money was not somewhere else in the room . They checked the electronic door mechanism to see who came in my room and and according to them no one but me enter the room ( figures ) . The next day I went and talk to another security staff member to tell them to check on the people that comes in to the hotel and sales you the excursions because they are the only people that have your hotel name of course and your room number so they know how long you will be out of your room , the guy looks at my face and said no that is IMPOSSIBLE , I laughed then as I tell him that it sounds like an inside job he assured me that they have a security system that no one can crack , I laughed some more and went back to my room , then I realized they are sitting on a gold mine , cause here in the US we have one of the best secured systems and Russia , North Korea and China were able to crack it so I hope they take advantage of this situation LOL ! Little to say I will never go back to that hotel ever again . PS I know they provide a safe in the rooms and my money was taken from a drawer , still an inside job so be careful use the safe specially if you are going to an excursion .

I can’t wait to write this review, last week I was at Paradisus Cancun :AMAZING, beautiful, hotel, the lobby simple but great for me less is more!! , the reception was nice and the gentlemen that made our check in was very courteous, we get there a little early and immediately we were taken into the room : the rooms was very nice we had a lagoon view and the busy boulevard, but the entrance to the lobby was to far from the street that we didn’t hear any noise at all, the little fridge was full of drinks, cookies, chips a little downside, the bed was a little hard for me but I ask them if they can do something and immediately they send the housekeeper to put some soft stuff in the bed and was fine, the toiletries fantastic!!! And there was not that musty smell that sometimes you feel as a soon you enter the room overall great room , the buffet for the breakfast was really good they were changing the menu almost everyday, unfortunately I didn’t get the names of the people working in the restaurant, but everybody was really nice and complacent they go far and beyond to make you feel important, the bathrooms in the common areas as the pool, the lounge and around the hotel ; super, super clean, love the tacos and quesadillas corner , the Mexican restaurant was great, the Japanese, fabulous, but the level 0 of the hotel the best amazing beautiful, my husband and me had a massage OH MY GOD !!! You must have it !!!! was wonderful !!!! In overall wonderful resort, I will be back as soon as possible I definitely recommend this hotel

When we exited the bus, there were friendly faces awaiting us. We were offered a washcloth which had a lovely aroma. We were assisted with our luggage and upon entering the hotel, noticed how beautiful it was from the distance.

What I loved:
-A quick and smooth check-in.
-The room was beautiful - picture perfect.
-We had access to the snacks, soda, water in the refrigerator, 24-hour room service (for a $5 fee), unlimited food and drinks.
- Impeccable customer service.
- There was a number of restaurants on the grounds which served very tasty food.
- Housekeeping was amazing.
- Their efforts to assist us and accommodate such a large party was greatly appreciated.

What I would improve:
- There were limited channels on the TV in which most of them were in Spanish. There were only a few programs in English.
- I didn't enjoy the majority of their alcoholic beverages.
