The Paradisus Palma Real

Our vacation to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic was wonderful. The resort was truly amazing. The people were incredibly friendly and helpful. Our excursion on the Reef Explorer was fabulous (I got a massage!). The beach had the softest sand I’ve ever been on. The Caribbean ocean was picturesque, as always. And the food was abundant (although not amazing). Here are a few photos from the trip.

Here’s a view from the lobby – crystal blue water as far as the eye could see!

A view of the pool – it wrapped all the way around the back of the resort.

The beautiful and abundant tropical fish on the reef.

The tide-break just beyond the reef.

On our way to dinner at Passion restaurant – very gourmet – very shee-shee! Possibly the best meal we ate the entire trip.

There was some very interesting pieces of artwork and sculpture around the resort.

This is what vacations were meant for – lounging poolside! Look at those pasty stems…

Enjoying the breeze on the beach.

All good things must come to an end though…here we are waiting for our shuttle to the airport. Sam was less thrilled to be going home than I was.
