Hi everyone, I hope you all enjoyed the 4th of July holiday! Today, I’m finally sharing my Dominican Republic Vacation Review! As most of you know from previous posts, I recently stayed with my family at the Paradisus Palma Real Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. If you follow me on Snapchat, then you got to see how absolutely beautiful the resort and beach views are during my little daily tours! Not only is the place breathtaking, but the customer service is impeccable and the food is surprisingly delicious. I say surprisingly because every time I hear all-inclusive, I immediately think mediocre, but these restaurants far exceeded my expectations! Even the buffet selection didn’t disappoint. My favorite restaurants that we dined at are: Fuego, Vento, the Hibachi restaurant and one of their VIP restaurants called Olio.

Your Questions Answers:
Were there any iguanas? I was actually pretty relieved that I didn’t see any! Not to say that there are no iguanas in Punta Cana, but I didn’t hear of any on the resort grounds.
Are the rooms nice? Y’all….were the rooms nice?! My room was maybe one of my favorite parts! I’m kind of big fan of room service and they offered 24 hour room service! I’m also a huge fan of relaxing baths and let me tell you that you could probable fit 8 people in that bathtub. That sounds weird when I read that aloud, but you get what I mean! The tub was huge and had a perfect new of the TV! Now that’s what I call vacation! lol I literally took 3 baths a day!
Any complaints about the service or the resort itself? Fortunately, we didn’t run into any issues except I will warn you that I got attacked by mosquitos! So bring bug spray! Also, when I say it’s hot in Punta Cana, I don’t think y’all realize quite how hot! I don’t think I ever cooled down, but most of the time you’re enjoying yourself so much that you forget about the heat!
Did you go on any excursions, do you have any recommendations? Ok.. so I’m not really the best person to ask because I’m a big scared cat and won’t scuba dive or even snorkel so I didn’t participate in any of those events with family. However, the resort did offer really fun activities like paddle board fitness classes and underwater spin classes! I did the underwater spin class and had a blast while also getting in a work out. Speaking of working out, they have a fantastic fitness facility in which I managed to hit up every day that I was there! I mean you’ve got to when the food is that good!
