Paradisus Short Review/Pics (Long)

The food.... I have had some of the best meals I have ever had here. And deserts... oh lord I am going to be dieting hard when I leave here.
The beach is beautiful, powder white sand and the water will take your breath away with all of the shades of turquoise and blues. No creatures thus far but there is some seaweed. They have had a couple of storms but it isn't bothersome and they clean it everyday. You can walk 5 minutes down the beach and there is a little flea market with cute souveniers or you can take a golf cart right outside the resort and there is a shopping center that has Hard Rock and apparently lots of shops (we havent been able to go yet)
They have entertainment everynight, and I don't mean cheesy skits, like good shows. Last night they did a Circus... like Cirque De Soleil, and it was incredible. Everyone was dancing and it was a great time. Afterwards everyone went to the disco, which is open every night, and you can't help but shake it!
The pools are unbelievably huge and they have little whirlpools throughout that have jacuzzi jets. The temperature isnt that different but the jets feel great. The best part about the place is the bali beds. They have bali beds all over that are huge little huts with comfortable beds in them around the pool that give you privacy. They have speakers in them with low, calm music that allows you to sit back and listen to the beach but not hear everyones commotion. I have finished one book and am starting on another. And I can't tell you how many times Tim and I have snuggled up reading and fell asleep together on those things. I have never been more relaxed or comfortable.
They also did a honeymoon social, which I was not excited about. But when we went they had candlelit tables set up and served champagne, scrumptous appetizers, and gave us a spa set gift. They also had a wedding cake and took pics of you cutting it, very cute. They had a trio with a female vocal that sounded so much like Norah Jones, I about peed my pants! WE LOVE NORAH JONES, and when she sang I literally had to get up and go look. She sang for an hour and we danced by our table, truly magical.
During dinners they have a male trio go around and seranade couples with songs like "I Swear", very sweet.
As far as getting married here, as I said before I think it would be extremely beautiful under the gazebo over the pool, set to candlelight. You can't imagine how breathtaking it is. I have seen several set up on the beach (I am including a pic where they are setting up one right now) and it would be breathtaking. Really, you could do it inside the buffet line in one of the restaurants and I don't think you would be disappointed, lol, everything here is so exquisit. If you guys see a place online you want me to look at and take pics, just let me know. I am here until Tuesday (1st).
One more thing... I definately recommend the Royal Service. A lot of places online said not to get it, but we love it. It gives you one more restaurant to eat at that is exclusive to RS and is the best we have been to. Also there is a private pool that is adult only you can go to with private bali beds that your butler reserves for you. He also does turn down service with chocolates, runs romantic baths (and puts something in the tub, holy crap it was unbelievable, we both woke up the next morning and felt we had been under a spell, lol, I am not kidding) and he takes care of anything and everything you need. For the small price difference and depending on what room you get, its included, you can't miss it!
Ok, I am going on too long, let me know if you have any specific questions. We are doing a spa day today so I will let you know how that is later.
Here are some pics...
