Grand Paradise Playa Dorada
Ranked #8 of 40 Hotels in Puerto Plata
Reviewed 24 August 2014

After completing a 2 year contract, my daughter treated me to a much needed vacation. The travel agency suggested Grand Paradise in DR and it was everything a mother-daughter vacation should be; safe, good food, family atmosphere and value for dollar. Air Transat representative, Fancisco, met us upon arrival and catered to our every need. The of site excursions were exciting and reasonably priced. The hotel staff - pleasant, trustworthy and made us feel as if we were part of their family. Evening entertainment was followed by dancing. Food was plenty and satisfied every palate. The children's center, although we did not use, was organized and staff were extremely comfortable with running a proper schedule of fun events. The talented "Mom" kept them busy; full view of parents if one felt the need to check-in. The guest services team ensured participation in volleyball, aerobics, dancing lessons, and much good fun was had by all. A crew of handsome, young lads knew what was happening morning, noon and night. People skills, language ability and charm had every age feeling the awe of Spanish romance in dance, song, drink and dance. Being poolside has never been so enchanting! Juan Carlos, Aris and Javier - we miss you! We will be returning at Christmas! Until then ...

The crew was very friendly, supportive and attentive. The animators where very much fun & attentive. We were able to become closer to both Javier & Aris and they were both devoted to their jobs! Thank you both for making our vacation special!

I travelled here a little over a year ago and this resort is what sparked my passion for travelling to the Caribbean. Grand Paradise had great food, clean pools, and a great animation team that kept you smiling throughout your trip. This resort was truly a great place for people of all ages! There are plenty of fun excursions to do in Puerto Plata. I recommend the Runners tour as it is a great way to learn more about the Dominican culture. Now that I have travelled to Cuba and Mexico, I can compare the beaches and Puerto Plata definitely lacks in that department. The water was wavy and had a strong undertow. The worst thing about this resort is the amount of people who harass you on the beach to buy stuff. Not sure if that problem has been addressed since I was there. Overall this resort is a wonderful place to visit as it is very affordable and a great place to soak up some Caribbean sun :)

I loved my vacation in this hotel. The waiters (like Jose) and bartender (like Elvis) were very humble and caring, if you needed something, they literally run to bring you the things you want. Even though they don't have a lot of variety in the buffet, it was really good. The views are beautiful and the beach, but in the beach theres people that it always selling things to you, BUT THAT IS NOT THE RESORT FAULT, if you say no, they back off. The entertainment team were really friendly, caring and really funny, like Yancarlos, Jonathan, Aris, Janet, Javier, Amauris, they makes us laughed a lot in the night shows. I personally recommended this hotel because they treat you like family. Hopefully I will come back next summer. One of the best vacation ever, I had a lot of good memories with my family there.

In general this resort was very relaxing and the staff, the food and the entertainment seemed to get better as the days passed by. Javier, our favourite entertainer along with the two restaurant "bosses" were extremely helpful. The only problem was the time share promoters. They were a bit annoying and may have dampened our vacation a bit. But the dinners made up for it as the dinner by the beach was spectacular. Beautiful beautiful experience. The area was amazing and overall the hospitality was amazing. Thank you.

All the workers at the resort were awesome. Javier, aris, amauri, Jonathan did an awesome job with the activities. Ramon and Elvis knew exactly what drink to get me every time. All the workers got to know each of us and knew us by name by the end of the third day or so. We will definitely be back to this resort!
