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

Worst place I have stayed at. Had one hot meal the whole week, and that was a bar-b-q. internet cost you $50 USD for the week and you had to be in certain areas to log in. Taxi rates are out of this world. Don't even think of shopping, nothing is worth the price. Everyone wants to sell you a... More

My family and I went here as a winter holiday and we could not have been more happy. The staff bent backwards to accommodate us, the food (at all restaurants + breakfast) was fabulous! I STILL crave Spanish rice & pineapple for breakkie! During our visit, the weather was iffy but there was no shortage of other activities. A mall... More

Just a great place to be. My girlfriend and I have had the pleasure to visit this great resort three times in 18 months. The staff are very accommodating. Food is pleasing to the palate and never ending. The hardest daily decision is to go to start our day at the beach or pool.

Nice temperature, good foods, good beds, incredible employees. Just hope to be back as soon as possible. It was not our first vacation in Dominican Republic. Grand Paradise was the best report for us (quality/cost)
