My wife and I visited Paradisus Playa de a Carmen for an upcoming 26th Wedding Anniversary set for June 3, 2021. We had lunch at Pavo Real by the Sea. We decided that this location would be perfect for our anniversary dinner. Overall great service...onsite. However, that service was overshadowed by the lack of responses to my emails, online inquiries, and phone always sounding busy. I’ve been trying to connect with someone to reserve a table with no response back. 5 emails, 20 calls, 3 online inquiries and nothing. I went as far as contacting the Paradisus Playa de Carmen’s concierge for help thinking that it may be more of a local thing. Nothing!! They also made the same comments. We will be going back in June as I stated above and hopefully whilst there, we will have luck making a reservation. I will also make another reservation elsewhere in case we are not successful.More

Having a real hard time making and confirming reservations. The online reservation system does not give a confirmation, Sent 2 emails with no response, tried calling several times but always a busy signal. It is almost impossible to contact.

I visited this magical place two weeks ago to celebrate my sister's retirement. After reading all of the very positive reviews I hoped the experience would live up to my high expectations. This place is not to be missed! It blew us away. We were...delighted with the intimate setting and wonderful seaside views from our table on the porch. The service was outstanding without being overbearing. Staff helped us with wine pairings and their recommendations were spot on. We both enjoyed seafood and fish for both appetizers and mains. The dishes were done to perfection (not overcooked) and were very artfully plated. Our waiter even helped us with photos and seemed as excited as we were to be at Pavo Real. Bravo! We hope to return again one day.More

We have vacationed multiple years at Kin Sol Soleil and thus eaten many times at Pavo Real by the Sea. This vacation, we brought our adult children and spouses for a total party of 10 people. Pave Real staff did a superior job meeting the...needs of our large party for breakfasts, lunches, dinners and more. We had 2 scheduled large family meals that the staff truly made special for our family. We have one family member with dietary restrictions and the staff made sure that all her needs were accommodated. The view from the restaurant is amazing and again the staff and chef are superior!More

Truly exceptional evening! The setting is spectacular, gorgeous sunset glow on the billowy clouds. The only thing better was the food and service. Wonderful fresh unique salads. We shared the lobster for two...best I ever had. I can’t wait to return....it’s magical and very romantic!

Pavo Real by the Sea was a spectacular spot for dinner. They were located right by the ocean so you got to enjoy the relaxing ocean breeze and sound of waves as well as the moon rise in the background. The staff was attentive to...all our needs and our waiters Carlos, Roberto and Emilio were all incredibly friendly and on the ball. The restaurant had amazing seafood and I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a scenic dinner spot.More

We were in Cancun/Puerto Morelos for the weekend celebrating my fiancée’s birthday and were looking for a place to eat on our last night in the county. A quick google search brought up Pavo Real. It’s not the easiest place to get to but the...journey helps build up to the beautiful ocean view. Well worth it. The food was excellent. I had the Duck and my fiancée had the lamb. The service was top notch. Carlos, Emilio, and Roberto did their best to make we had a great experience.More

I was staying at Kin Sol Soleil, and this is their adjacent restaurant. For hotel guests, they offer an incredible free breakfast with a wide variety of choices and yummy homemade breads. We also had lunch and dinner there several times. The restaurant is intimate,...with both indoor and outdoor seating which overlooks Maroma Beach. If you are staying at Belmond Maroma, Pavo Real is a quick 5 minute walk on the beach or through the hotel garden. If you are driving there from elsewhere, it will be difficult to find as you must make your way through a large forest, which is a bit of a maze, but you can arrange for someone at the hotel to meet you just off the road and guide you to the restaurant. We enjoyed the many meals we had there. Great staff, too!More

Good seafood especially , well cooked and lovely to look at . Good menu choice . Wine is reasonably priced which is a nice surprise for this coast . The staff are very friendly but are little over zealous , maybe because so the restaurant...wasn’t full and they wanted to help , constant top up wine etc . All our food choices were fish and excellently cooked although the risotto rice was on the stodgy side despite its excellent seafood and flavourMore
