I've stayed at Majestic Elegance, but not at PPC. I have stayed at The Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real and if the PC resort is similar, it is hands down better than Majestic. Food was better, service was better, and overall management and operations were better.

Thank you so much for your input. PPC is a little less expensive than PPR so I assume their food isn't as good as PPR maybe? Just my guesses.

The Reserve at the Paradisus Punta Cana is the better resort over the Majestic Elegance. The Paradisus has the better food hands down. I found the food to be very average at the Elegance. I've been to all three resorts (Reserve at the PPC, Reserve at the PPR, and the Elegance). The Elegance is a good resort. It's just that the Paradisus resorts are better.

I found that the food and service was of the same quality at the PPR and the PPC. I believe the difference in price comes from the fact that the PPR is newer. It also has a more modern and upscale look over the PPC. Not that the PPC is rundown. It just has a tropical feel and vibe to it. I think I actually prefer the PPC over the PPR because it has a bit more of a livelier feel.

PPC is better for younger kids ..especially the reserve.. The beach is a bit of a hike but there are trams... Have stayed at both as well.

Currently staying at PPC and I agree with everything that has been said above so far.
