We just returned from a 5 night stay at the Reserve, the resort is immaculate with plenty of beds/seats/lounges throughout the property, it was very easy to find a nice quiet spot and just enjoy. We mainly ate at the Buffet at Gabi club, no complaints at all as there was something for everyone. Beach was fantastic and the staff were very attentive. Loved the carts that took us wherever we needed to go. 100% will be back next November!
We arrived before check-in so they gave us our bracelets and told us to eat and drink till check-in. Then we had to wait a little longer for our room to be ready. As an apology they upgraded us to a lovely junior suite, overlooking the beach. The food was hit and miss. Try a little of everything and you'll find something you enjoy. There's plenty of fresh fruit to enjoy every meal. They did try to sell us on the Presidential Suites a couple times but they were very nice about it when we said no. They do a beautiful landscaping job and we couldn't help but comment on it everyday. Overall we loved everything about this vacation.

We loved our stay, going privilege is definitely the way to go. The bed was too hard but that was minor. Housekeeping and butler service wonderful. Our villa was close the the beach and pool as well as the buffet. Entertainment each night was fantastic, hats off to those hard working, talented people. The food was great and loved hanging out at Overtime in the evenings for a game of pool. Mikes has the best coffee ever! Thanks to all the staff at this wonderful resort!
I've been sick 2 times goin to Dominican prior and was reluctant to go again, however the good at this resort was absolutely amazing in taste, quality and never had a stomach issue whatsoever. Also this resort is not massive which is also nice as walking around a concrete jungle all day is not my thing. If I was ever to go back to Dominican I woild comeback to this resort 100%
Whala! was a great hotel to stay in. I went with my siblings for New Year's Eve and we had a blast! The staff members are all energetic and helpful. You will hear and see them singing and dancing to salsa and bachata. I recommend that you book your excursions separately because the hotel prices are more expensive than online offers and other hotels in the area.

This is our first trip down to the Dominican Republic and we loved it. We spent about a month trying to decide between hotels in Punta Cana, and finally chose Paradisus, largely due to good review and they were right. The location was great. The staff was very friendly. Most spoke some English. Although, once people found out my husband spoke Spanish, they only spoke Spanish to us. The rooms were kept very clean and were regularly checked. We kept our valuables in the safe, but the staff there all seemed very honest. The restaurants were amazing. We had no problem getting reservations, but it was a down time so not all the restaurants were open in a given night. The pool was amazing. It was huge, pristine, and had more than enough chairs. There were more than enough bali beds on the beach. We did get ants in the room but only when the staff left truffles in there, so we simply asked to not get any more truffles. There is almost no nightlife in the resort at night, so i would recommend going out or going to a different hotel if your want more night life.
