“Excellent vacacionts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2013

When i stayed in Grand Paradise I noted a different environment from the other hotels, I liked the costumer service is excellent and the animation too... i liked the costumer service from Jesús Castro and the animators too, they are really funny and Jesús is an excellent employee.

The hotel has an amazing location, it's restaurant smack on the beach is unique, you have an 180 degree view of the ocean, palm trees, the beach, and a very beautiful mountain! Thats the view you get! A trully breathtaking view! Staff works very hard, clean hotel, and food is excellent; no reasons to complain! Beach is very nice on both sides of the hotel, great beach to walk and exercise on, sea is nice! Vendors are friendly! Give the hotel a chance, y won't regret it! I was there in early April! I was truly pleasantly surprised!

my stay in the hotel was very short, as in the day I had to take my time at work ... but the nights were wonderful .... My little free time, it engages in distracted by the animation team, the it filled all my expectations .... I remember especially guillermo diaz .... which .... hope to go back ... but this time with my family ... and so, to enjoy those beautiful beaches and my youngest daughter, which makes you crazy dancing, learn the techniques of these guys so tightly coupled ... recommend it, no doubt!!!

I have travelled to this resort many times and its always a great time. The staff is so friendly. The animation staff are always laughing and always making you feel at home. Happy Boy always seems to be smiling and making you want to be a part of the activities,

First of all, IGNORE THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS, this place is beautiful. The rooms are very clean, the grounds are well kept and the staff will make sure you have a great time. The bartenders and servers are always friendly, and the entertainment staff work all day and night to ensure there is fun stuff to do. Water aerobics, pool games ect, MANNY is very charismatic and he will make the days and nights fun. The entertainment is done at 11 pm so i think complaints about late night noise from other reviewers is unfounded, For the younger crowd, the indoor disco is open until 1 am.

The food is a mixed bag. Some stuff i didn't care for, but there's plenty of selection so you will find something you like. For breakfast I recommend the omelet bar. You chose which ingredients you want and it is made right in front of you, by OLANDO, if you're lucky. Big thanks to OLANDO, he is always very busy making perfect omelets and he still manages to be very friendly. Two a la carte restaurants to chose from, Edens grill is right on the beach and the food was amazing, and Micheal Angelo's restaurant serves standard north American Italian food.

The beach is beautiful, lots of chairs, just watch out for the vendors. They will try to sell you excursions and necklaces and it takes a few rounds of saying NO before they leave you alone, but this is no fault of the hotel, these guys are everywhere off the resorts. GINA was our rep that we met at orientation and she was very helpful in booking our excursions and answering our questions.

All in all, this resort is great for couples, family and friends, there is truly something for everyone, and for what you pay, it is well worth it. Big thanks to MANNY, JOSE, OLANDO, and all the rest of the staff that worked so hard and made our vacation perfect.
