I just got back from Grand Paradise earlier this week. For a resort that's favorable amongst budget minded people, it offers a lot. The beach is large and beautiful! The restaurants are situated very close to the ocean , so it makes for a very scenic view while eating. The food is very good, the buffet offers a lot of... More

We had a great time at Grand Paradise as a couple and would recommand to anyone who wants to have a relax and fun vacation. The beach is really big so you can walk for hours either direction you take. Wherever you decide to eat (at the buffet of at the Eden's restaurant) you will have a stunning view of... More

Just returned from this resort on Tuesday. It's 5 or 10 mins. bus ride from the airport, which was a pleasant change, although I actually don't mind a long bus ride because I get to look around. The staff are absolutely wonderful & always smiling. The room was quite suitable. Mine was overlooking the pool where I would go on... More
