Grand Paradise is fine. From my understanding, the management has done this place some good.

I think you need to clarify your idea of "party fun resort" most resorts will be around 70% or more couples or families in my opinion. Are you looking for a good nightclub extensive daytime activities, somewhere central to a few bars outside the resorts, that info may get you a few more suggestions

Adult only resorts aren't typically what you'd call party places. They're geared more toward romance. Family resorts are going to have kids of all ages, including teenagers.

Melia Caribe Tropical might be a good choice for you. Stay on the Caribe side. Most of the kids are on the Tropical side where they have Flintstone stuff around the pool.

Melia has a pretty good night life. They have a disco on site, which is usually hopping after midnight, and there are clubs close by, such as Mangu. Melia sometimes holds a party/rave late at night in the Square Bar (indoor/outdoor). They also have a pretty good casino, and a live band in the main/lobby bar after the show in the theater is over.

It's an extremely large resort (more than 1400 rooms), with tons of restaurants and bars. My friend calls it the Swiss Army knife of resorts, because there's something for everyone.

last year stayed there for 15 days with a 6 and 8 year old. It was great. Upon registration...ask for the manager....slip him $50 and he will/ may make dining reservations at a different resturant for every night. Or you can call daily and make you own , 12 hours in advance though.

HAGT !

Yes...corruption is king...But....funny how when payoffs don't work ...the place is a dump...never going back! LOL

In my mind...Occidental...or better yet Princess Bavaro would offer what you are looking for.
