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... More

We spend two weeks in the resort and it was one of the best vacations ever! The animation Team Javier Jonathan amourös aris and the whole staff is great. The time passed way too fast and I really wish we could have stayed longer. The beach is wonderful and really close

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... More

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... More

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... More

It was good. Amazing views and scenery. Staff were friendly and attentive. The entertainment was enjoyable but was repetitive. The food could have been a lot better. Lots of flies in the salad/ fruit and birds flying around during breakfast and lunch. Various activities including mini golf, tennis and table football to name a few. We were thoroughly entertained my... More

This hotel was GREAT! Best vacation I have EVER been on. It's been 3 months and I'm still talking about and reminiscing on how much fun I had. Myself and 10 friends stayed at Grand Paradise the week of May 26 2014. Because it was low season the resort was very quiet except on the weekend because many locals spend... More

I will definitely be going back! Amazing staff! Front desk staff Maria was very helpful throughout my stay. Entertainment budds: Amauri, Aris, and Jonathan were just too fun. Overall just GREAT! For the price; you get what you pay for. Don't expect a 5 star hotel, because it's not.
