Beautiful photo Michelle!

  • Good nightly entertainment

  • Very clean rooms

  • Great kids club that kids actually like going too!

Travelers Didn't Love:


  • There was a shortage of beach and pool chairs and/or people "reserved" more than they needed

  • The two hour bus ride from the airport to get to the resort

  • Many people complained that there were long wait times for everything - this is especially true at the busiest times of year January through April

  • There was a lack of shade on the beach with very few palapas

  • It didn't feel like there was enough staff for the number of guests

Tips for Staying at Memories Paraiso Beach All Inclusive


  • Reserve the a la carte restaurants early as they book up quickly

  • "Diamond Club" value depends on what you like - it includes premium alcohol, upfront reservations at the a la carte restaurants, bath robes, butler service at the beach and better rooms

  • For a very quiet room try requesting bungalow 54 on the 2nd floor

  • Travelers recommend the catamaran/dolphin trip

  • Some travelers were able to get around the reservation process for the a la carte restaurants by tipping the maitre-de

  • Exchange your money at the bank just inside the town square for a better exchange rate (and quicker service) than at the reception desk
