We had our passports stolen from our room. On top of that the service is mediocre at best. The hotel is declining to acknowledge that it was done by staff despite the fact that only our keys are the ones that accessed our room. Our Nolitours rep has been of no assistance whatsoever despite what the Toronto office has asked... More

I can't complain too much overall seeing as we paid only $575 each for the week of Sept15-22 lol It's a clean resort, but was empty... I guess being early Sept all the travellers' kids are back in school? There was like 60 people max, during the weekdays. Quite a few locals came on the weekend, and I'll add about... More

My husband and I went to Grand Paradise Hotel for our honeymoon last week. We have never been to an all-inclusive resort and we were so pleasantly surprised! We understood going in that this was not a 5-star resort and so we did not have that expectation. Therefore, our expectations were far exceeded! Everyone at the resort speaks at least... More

As all inclusives go, this one has all the same features. Buffet, restaurants, pool, clean rooms, etc but the big bonus here is the playa Dorada..right at your toes. Never mind the view..one can easily see the mountain in the background..all pix sort of seem like Waikiki! Staff courteous although no one ever asked me to join in the 'fun'..i.e.... More

Third visit to the Dominican Republic and a new experience with the all inclusive program and it was fabulous. The variety of activities and facilities was different every day of our stay. Food was great and for every taste.

first off , I give the location a 5*, eating your meals looking over the water was wonderful. As there were 2 of us we were able to do that almost all the time because of the way the tables were placed. The food was good, they had yogurt a few mornings but then they ran out, as I like... More

First, I am absolutely confused how there are so many positive (even 5 stars?!) reviews of this place. This was one of the worst experiences my girlfriend and I had ever had. Beware of the following things: 1. No one at the resort - it was the height of the summer season in August, but there were only ~15 people... More
