Construction Notice

A new restaurant, Aqua Trattoria, is being built at the Paradisus Playa del Carmen and is scheduled to open in late-October, 2014. This will result in the expansion of the snack bar capacity for Family Concierge guests, as well as an option for all Paradisus guests to enjoy alfresco Italian Cuisine evenings. Aqua Trattoria will be located in the Family Concierge pool area where the HydroGrill is currently situated.

Simultaneously, we will be improving the adjacent pool area which includes the addition of a new towel hut for towel dispatch and pool concierge services.

In order to secure maximum comfort and satisfaction for all Family Concierge guests during the project, the operation of our Family Concierge building, as well as the HydroGrill Restaurant and its adjacent pool will be temporarily relocated from August 25, 2014, to October 21, 2014. The following will be in effect during that time for guests who book a Family Concierge Room.
