Another Week in Paradise

We're back in the Dominican Republic at the stunning Paradisus Palma Real. Like every other Sol Melia Vacation Club resort we've stayed at, this place is pretty close to paradise. Every detail of landscaping and decor has been carefully tended, and the all-inclusive plan is a great convenience. The food is unspectacular, but very well presented, and there certainly is plenty of it. I'm loving the bottomless Chivas Regal and Absolut Peppar vodka :-).

As great as the Palma Real is, we still give the edge to the Paradisus Punta Cana, where we stayed last year. We loved the beach service there, and the people we met were fantastic. We still talk about Miker, our beach waiter, who took care of our every need and entertained us with jokes and song. If we had it to do over again, we'd go back to the Punta Cana, but this ain't bad for now! See the slides below.
