Melia, Paradisus Resorts, and The Reserve at Paradisus

Reserve only the best. Stay at Melia, Paradisus, and The Reserve at Paradisus Resorts.


Meliá Caribe Tropical


Market Place restaurant Melia Caribe Tropical Meliá

Gourmet specialties prepared for you at show-cooking stations at the Market Place Buffet

Meliá Caribe Tropical All-Inclusive Beach & Golf Resort has a special place in my heart. Why? Because we’ll be traveling there on Nov. 15! Social Media Coordinator Sarah and I (Copywriter Susie) will be checking out the three buffet restaurants, the 10 specialty a la carte options, and 14 bars with international and domestic drinks. See which restaurants we like the best—Asian fusion, Mexican Tex Mex, Italian, traditional Dominican, and even American cuisine—and also whether my new pair of awesome jeans will fit on the way home! (I’ll be packing my yoga pants just in case.)

Not convinced to head to Meliá Caribe Tropical yet? The resort has two YHI Wellness areas, 10 swimming pools, casino, golf course, 13 meeting rooms (which GOGO will utilize this November), and a Flintstone-themed fun zone for kids. Guest suites have a private terrace or balcony, a separate setting area, and a small fridge, because at all-inclusive resorts, fridges are your best friends.

Paradisus Palma Real Resort

Paradisus Palma Real Resort is situated on Bávaro Beach, which has been declared one of the world’s best beaches by UNESCO, but it also boasts 398 square feet of waterscapes with one main pool, complete with six hydromassage areas, one children’s pool, one adults-only pool for Royal Service guests, and two pools for Club Meliá guests.

The resort has mature entertainment options for moms and dads like unlimited free green fees at the Cocotal Golf and Country Club, and a full program of activities including workshops, musicals, evening shows, and live music.
