How Does an all inclusive resort make the grade when looking for a resort with tennis? Our first all all inclusive resort with tennis was at the Paradisus Palma Real Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
We stayed in the adult only section of the resort. This area provided a quiet atmosphere. This type of resort offers butlers who are pleased to set up dinner reservations and more importantly our tennis court time.
Our tennis experience at Paradisus Palma Real Resort exceeded our tennis expectations. When we walked up to the beautiful, flower lined fences, well kept, hard tennis courts, we had no idea how amazing our experience would be. The Teaching Tennis Pros bent over backwards to make our tennis experience unforgettable. After William and I played a set or two of singles, our first day, the Pros asked us if we would like to play doubles with them. We had so much fun. The Pros were really good tennis players. For three days, we either played against one Pro and another guest, or we played with the Pros as our partners. Honestly, we would come back to this resort solely on our wonderful experience with the Teaching Tennis Pros. Simply said, they made our trip.
Our resort stay was filled with stellar service, from beginning to end. Each day, after our tennis experience, we would go to the beach. The butler would ensure that our beach area was set up, same place, each and every day. We did not have to lift a finger.
Paradisus Palma Real Resort, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic succeeded in exceeding all our expectations of an all inclusive resort with tennis vacation! When we returned home, we said to each “let’s bring our kids here, they would love it!” We can’t wait to go back!
Tip: Arrange for ground transportation prior to your trip to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. We used Dominican Plus (they have wifi in their vehicles. We paid about $60 for a round trip for two people). Dominican Plus provided excellent transportation service, with very clean vehicles. Otherwise, you may end up in a long line, in hot weather, at the airport. In addition, bring $10 cash per person to pay for your Visa, upon arriving at the airport in Punta Cana.
