“EXCELLENT TIME !!!”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Arrived April 1, 2014 and stayed 7days. My husband and I had a great time. We stayed in building 7 first floor and the room was very nice and the house keeping kept the rooms very clean. Mattress was so comfortable!! The food was great in both restaurants and in the buffet. The beach was clean and there was always an activity going on to keep you busy, if you don't like just sitting on the beach. It was awesome that there was 3 bars located on the beach, so it was only a short walk from anywhere on the beach. Bartenders were great and they always had our preferred drink ready before we walked up to the bar. If you want an awesome Caesar take a quick walk outside the resort to the mini mall ( two minute walk ). There is a very small bar in there called Traguitos. The owner makes a awesome Caesar with real clamato!!!

Room Tip: Pick building 7 or 9. on the beach, great views and if it's windy you can still sit out and not...

I enjoyed my stay here among the things I liked the most is the friendly atmosphere from your staff especially the group of Animation including the following members: Amauris, Joel, Jonathan,Aris and Janeth. They really made us feel at home.
Also, our housekeeper Rosita incharged of room 1514.

Joel was AWESOME - I enjoyed the entertainers - the weather was beautify and the hotel was great. Michaelangelo was very good. Artisimedes was AMAZING, he taught me how to dance Salsa, Meregue and Bachata. And I got music from Romeo and Drake. :) Jonathan was crazy fun as well, he is the best dancer I've seen - I enjoyed the Domincan Folklore and the Latin Dancers, the guests were nice and our hotel room was clean. The customer service was great and the entertainers were the best part of this vacation. (Joel, Joanthan and Aris)

My first stay in Dominican Republic. The staff has been so friendly with great entertainment every night. Excellent food, and we always had a staff member trying to see if they can make anything better. Especially my friends Joel and Jonathan. Would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to relax and enjoy the sun

food repeats itself but in different forms
rooms were clean and all staff was very helpful and friendly.
the bar staff was great.
Monday to Fridays was very quite, but the weekend was very busy, due to the locals being able to come onto the resort, which i did not mind as they were also very nice people.
i would return mainly because of the staff.Jose Pilar the bartender was one of the best there.

Room Tip: just ask for a room on the ground floor near the pool, as it it the most central area

We were at the Grand Paradise for the week of April 17-24th. The hotel is excellent for the price paid for an all inclusive one week trip. The service from staff, especially Francis who was able to set us up with great accomodation before we leave... ask for him at the desk...

The whole staff is dedicated, polite and warm.

2 little downside. I would have expected a ready to lock safe ( you need to rent a specific lock for the safe (20$))... not really expensive and yes it is mentionned but still... quite some essential stuff when abroad...

As well, the beach is far from beign clean... Although it is the responsability of the tourists to show etiquette, the group of resorts/hotel on the beach ( and not just the Grand Paradise) could make an supplementary effort to enhence that side of the trip for tourists...

Overall a great place without having to pay much...

It was a very nice resort, a very nice beach. The food at the la carts were great, the food at the buffet was always the same food just mixed into something different. There was no service for your drinks when on beach or pool side. Yes a bus comes every five mins but it was always full the 2nd bus was mostly empty, we did not like having to take the bus back and forth, you need to pack for the day what you need for the beach/pool. We are used to walking to things close by. The bartenders at different bars could not make your drink the same, it was always made different. Be careful on excursions the buggies, kids on side of road asking for money, when you get to the beach the guys will try and give you a drink making you think there for free then they will ask for payment when leaving. Also shops at the cave they want you to buy there stuff, they don't tell you this before u go. Entertainment was not good at all.

Room Tip: You want to be close to the beach and main pool. If you are not could with stairs you need to ask fo...
