Last night we were treated royally to a feast at the Coco's beachside restaurant at Paradisus Caribe, a neighboring hotel in the same hotel family as ours. We first took a tour of the hotel at Paradisus Palma Real. The two hotels are on the same huge property. GORGEOUS!
After the tour we sat down for our feast. We were given the best service because our waiter was a former employee of Rafael. He brought us bottled water and fresh tortilla chips before we even ordered. We first were served different ceviche options. The shrimp ceviche was delicious with cold peppers and onions. Mom had an octopus ceviche and despite my efforts to try new foods, I was still a little creeped out by octopus! Next we were brought the biggest portions of food I have ever seen in my life. I ordered a flank steak and mom a lobster. I was good here and even tried a piece of grilled onion. My close friends and sisters know, onions and I don't mix well. Although I had high hopes for a Dominican onion, I still haven't grown a liking for them. We enjoyed the evening eating and getting to know Rafael better! He's made sure our trip here has been perfect!

Dinner was such a great time! It's a gorgeous day outside now so we're pool bound again! Tonight we are being treated to 80 minute massages, under the stars!
