Employees very courteous and helpful. Loved the fresh lobster special for $52 dinner for 2 includes the full course dinner with wine and great service. Entertainment there were some good days and some wonderful days. Beautiful view from our hotel room.

Had an amazing time with my entire family when we traveled to this hotel. The room, food, experience and beach is amazing. The only downside was we found some of the female staff on reception slightly rude at times but we understand language barriers occur. Would love to return to this hotel.

My sister and I spent the last week at the Grand Paradise Playa Dorada and it was wonderful. We were continuously entertained by their Animacion team who always had fun activities including dancing, athletic competitions and water sports. We would like to say a special thank you to Olman, Jonathan, Yanet and Jan Carlos. They made our vacation so enjoyable!... More
