We are a family of 4. With children ages 6 & 8. We stayed in a family concierge room and everything was amazing. The service provided by our butler Alejandro was top notch! He took care of our restaurant reservations and activities throughout our stay. We have been to Cancun area a couple times , but our first stay at Paradisus Cancun beats them all. We felt very comfortable leaving the children at the kids club to do activities. The restaurants always welcomed us and the wait staff is also great. At Fuego: Sonia, Grecia and Luis made my birthday extra special! We Loved Paradisus! Going to Paradisus Punta Cana later this year and hope it is just as magnificent!

Room Tip: Ocean view room was great but at night was a little noisy because the night entertainment for guests...

We booked a Family Concierge 1 bedroom Suite with our 11 month old daughter. Let me say that we have stayed at many resorts throughout the Caribbean including 3 other Paridisus’s and the service here was the best we have ever had. Our “butlers” Josue and Alexander were amazing and went above and beyond our expectations. They truly made sure everything was looked after for us. They brought our little girl several little gifts including toys, colouring books, food to feed the fish, cookies and milk in the evenings and even some candy ( which of course I ate as she is not at the “gummy bear” stage in her diet yet). The family Concierge amenities for kids include a back pack with a sand bucket toy set, t shirt, slippers, and a children’s toiletries set. For Mom and Dad we received wine and cheese plates, Champagne and chocolate covered Strawberries and other treats. The suite even had bathrobes for us and a little wee one for our daughter. There were tons of other amenities included that we didn’t take advantage of due to our daughters young age but there is a kids club, baby club, daycare and children’s entertainment everyday to name a few. The restaurants were all quite good as well and excellent service in all of them. We had a great time in Cancún at this resort. If you are looking for a place to go with your kids then I highly recommend the Family Concierge service at the Paradisus Cancún and if you are lucky you will have Josue and Alexander as your butlers.

I don’t normally write reviews but I can’t help it this time! I really don’t understand who wrote those great reviews! We are a family of four with two college-age kids. Yes, we know what good food is but we also know what is totally pre-made-then-frozen-then-microwave food is. The so-called passion fruit refresher coffee has sour milk flakes floating on top, the sushi was ceviche-thin served at “room-temperature”, the Asian flare was nothing but a joke, the buffet looks and tastes like those 6.99 all-you-can-eat at a joint off the freeway, the Spanish tapas was made with frozen octopus then reheat, so come on, they can’t even make Mexican food right! The only thing they did right was the fresh fruits; yes, they are real and fresh. Oh, also the fresh grilled lobster on pineapple, yes, that’s real non-previously frozen lobster. So the food is a “half star”.

The staff on the other hand was fantastic. The place is decent, and the beach is beautiful. If it’s not because of the service and the nice staff, I would give it “one star”.

I have absolutely no idea who would write those high flying reviews on its food except the management!

What can I say about Paradisus except absolute paradise!!! Upon arrival, we checked in at the Club Melia side since we were travelling as RCI guests. They even had candy for my kids which allowed
us to focus on the check in instead
Of entertaining them...especially after a long day of travel! The check in was quick, and out bags were dropped off to our rooms quickly.

The lobby greenery and the overall ambiance of the hotel is simply stunning! I felt like I was in.a rainforest.

Food was amazing both at the buffet and a la carte. We loved the Market Grill and Fuego especially!!! The omelet and smoothie stations at the buffet restaurant are definitely worth the wait. If you don’t see something you want, just ask...the waiter overheard my daughter wanting pasta with butter and he immediately jumped out and said he would get it for her....that is service and it made her day! We also really loved the poolside grill, where we often ate our lunch which had options of wood oven pizza and chicken wings! Poolside drinks were always available...shout out goes to Manuel our wonderful server!!!

We went to the nightly shows each night. The Michael Jackson one and the Cirque de Soleil type show were great!!! There is not a lot of space, so be there early!!

My kids really enjoyed the kids club activities!!! Ceramics, cupcake decorating and wax hands were a hit!! The also likes cooling down by playing video games before dinner. Some of the special activities require registration...so check which activities need preregistration so your kids are not let down!

The pools and beach are breathtaking!!!! Lots of loungers are available. You can also choose to rent a cabana for the day! The pool is on the deeper side except in the kids section, so bring a floatie which are much cheaper at home than in the Mexico tourist area. Remember your thermal mugs so you can stay hydrated when walking down the beach!

The customer service and care of the workers truly stands out at this resort. My husband got injured and needed to have surgery. The manager at Club Melia, Ivette Sánchez, personally drove me and my children to the hospital as she could see the worry on my face about leaving the resort on my own. She also called and checked in daily to check on my husband and my children and myself. Ivette also arranged for my husband to be picked up at the hospital to be brought back to the resort. Georgy, our butler was amazing at checking in on us and looking after any need we had! On St. Patrick’s Day, I was surprised there were not any festivities and I mentioned it to Georgy....when We got back to our room, there were green balloons, green cake and a kids toy!!! This level of customer service is not seen at many resorts...I have not experienced it anywhere! Most people think the being injured on vacation would make you not want to return to the area or resort due to the memories...the customer service and amazing amenities made us rebook for our next vacation of which I am counting down the days!!! This resort truly is as Paradise as it gets!!!!

Many work colleagues have repeatedly asked the name of the resort after I describe it, and tell them about the amazing customer service! A few are looking in to booking there for their next vacation!

This was our second time at Paradisus Cancun, and we'd go back again tomorrow if we could! The facility, staff, restaurants... everything was perfect.
My family - with ages ranging from teenagers to seniors - was there to spend quality time and celebrate my dad's 85th birthday, we could not have picked a better place!
We're forever thankful to the team, who took such great care of every little detail of our stay. Friendly, kind, dear people.

Was there in early December and the weather was perfect, this was my first trip to another country and it was amazing, staff were amazing, all very polite and willing to help, please tip these people they deserve every dollar. The hotel was well taken care of and beautiful. The door lock to my room stopped working and they were up and had it replaced so fast I didn't miss a thing. Food was great and there was always something to eat at any given time. The drinks were good and did the job. I would attend again in a heartbeat, wasn't sure if I'd like traveling but now I can't wait to return to this amazing place.

My wife and I traveled in July of 2015. We left our kids at home, and we enjoyed the Royal upgrade package - in the section of the resort for couples only (no kids!). The private cabanas were awesome. The balcony view from our room was incredible. Everything about this trip was great!

Room Tip: If you're traveling without kids, the royal upgrade is a MUST. Totally worth it!
