Positive Reviews

Butler service well worth it.

Many guests of the Paradisus Palma Real raved about the personal, attentive service they received from the hotel butlers. Many felt that they were treated like royalty, and the attention to detail was truly impressive for those upgrading to this level of service. A bubble bath with rose petals? No problem. Help with restaurant reservations? No problem. Nothing was too much for these hard-working staff members.

Bring the kids and still have a vacation.

The Kids Club was a hit at this hotel, with many children asking to attend daily. Parents felt they were leaving their kids in good hands while they got a bit of quiet time. Evening babysitting services for an additional fee was also a nice way to enjoy a private dinner or relaxing drink by the ocean.

Evening entertainment a fun time.

Guests felt that nighty entertainment was just that- entertaining. A nice mix of evening dancing, music and shows was fun for all ages. Talented performers stood out in dance ensembles, and in an evening performance featuring music with various every day objects.

Negative Reviews

Separation of guests.

There are two categories of service at the Paradisus Palma Real: Standard and Royal Service. Guests foregoing the extra cost for the Royal Service felt a little left out after encountering areas designating for Royal Services guests only. Things like separate swimming pools and restaurants meant guests were segregated by service class, which didn't sit well with some.

Hit and miss food.

While many enjoyed the meal offerings at this hotel, others weren't impressed with overcooked meals or bland dinners. It seems some restaurants were better than others, and while food is a very personal preference, many guests had repeat complaints about the buffet selection at this resort.

Seaweed on the beach.

Bavaro Beach has been declared by UNESCO as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The powdery white sand never fails to disappoint, but several guests to this hotel noticed that seaweed that had washed ashore was something staff couldn't stay on top of.
