Paradisus was Beautiful. We stayed on the Family side with our three children ages 9, 10, and 12. We did upgrade to the reserve room and we felt like this was worth it. The reserve pool that we had access to was heated. We also had a concierge named Edgar who was amazing. Thanks to Edgar we had reservations at all the good restaurants and reservations at the gym daily. Pretty much any question we had about the resort Edgar was able to text us through the WhatsApp. Our room was a swim up master suite, that we were upgraded to. We would recommend doing the swim up room because it made it so easy for the kids to swim while we were across the way at the bar or ordering food. Our kids are all very good swimmers and they basically woke up and went out to the pool. I do wish there was another heated pool other than just the reserve pool that we had access to. I also wish that the hot tub on our patio filled with water faster. Otherwise I have no complaints. I noticed compared to other all inclusive‘s in Mexico, that the quality of the food and the alcohol was much better here. Paradisus did a great job with the food and the drinks. They were top-notch. The service was also excellent with genuinely friendly people who seem to care about the quality of your stay at the resort. Two of our favorite and most helpful people were Manuel and David at the beach.

Hotel's Favourite
Isis was AMAZING! She made our vacation a thousand times better and less stressful than it would have been. From the moment after checking in, she gave us a full tour of the resort making sure we knew exactly which restaurant was open when (since we were visiting during Covid restrictions) and what type of food they served, what area was Reserve, and what that meant, since we weren't staying in that area, and even made reservations at her favorite restaurant for that first night. (She gave us some time to decide where to eat the other evenings!) She shared her WhatsApp information. With hs and stayed in touch the entire week and made sure we were well taken care of. When we had a not so good experience, she made sure things were made right....right away! She made sure she came and found us at the pool and checked in to see how we were doing, oh and asked us if we would do the Circle Presentation! But, she wasn't pushy about it,,, which was the ONLY reason why we did it. We chose the BaliBed and wouldn't ya know it....who arrived a few hours in to check on us.....yup! Isis! It seemed weird could walk anywhere around the resort without running into her. I don't know how she does it. I was so blown away with Isis that as a Travel Advisor, I won't send anyone to Paradisus, Playa Del Carmen without making sure they are paired up with her! I just wish I could somehow clone her. Thank you Isis for making me vacation all that it was....PERFECT!!!

If you're looking for a review of the rooms, food, staff (incredibly kind and helpful) or amenities of the Paradisus Del Carmen, I recommend you read one of the other 12,000 reviews posted. My review is about something far more important: the coatis! If you don't know what a coatis is, you're not alone, we didnt either until we visited the Paradisus this Thanksgiving. They're basically a mix of a raccoon, anteater, and honey badger - in the best possible way. The coatis roam the beautiful white sand beach of the Paradisus in hopes that someone leaves behind a margarita or some chips and salsa, and who can blame them? I applaud the Paradisus for keeping their habitat that separates the beach and the hotel intact when other properties may have destroyed it to create a better beach view from the hotel. We visited Mexico for the sole purpose of relaxation and very much accomplished that - but the real highlight of the trip were the coatis and their huge personalities.

Edgar our concierge made all the difference. This is my 3rd time staying here and it was the BEST. Edgar was very respectful and took care of everything we requested from Booking Dinning reservations, Transportation, Booking Covid Testing appointments and etc, He kept in touch all day and if we needed anything he was just a text away. Also arranged for nice gift for my son and champagne for me & wife for the evening. I will absolutely recommend staying at the Reserve side even if you have to spend a little more money. It is totally worth it! It also has nice water sport activities right at the resort which was amazing. The food can be much better 3/5. Wish they add a live pasta station at the main buffet. Overall had an amazing stay and everything was just prefect. Thank you again Edgar!
