Just arrived home today from the DR. and where do I start. First of all if you are looking for a 5 star then this place is not for you. I would give it maybe a 3 star. Ok so the beach is not the nicest, but there are other beach close by, like Sousa, we spent 2 days of... More

Well where can I begin? In my humble opinion, if you want a average hotel that offers decent food then the Paradise is for you. The staff we found to be very helpful and nice. The rooms are poor, no doubt about it. Nearty every room in the hotel has a musty smell, however, after a day or two you... More

On Nov. 6-10 I visited Sun village resort and had the absolute worst time in my life. The resort was so horrible I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. I've been making trips with my co-workers for the past 5 years, often going twice a year. This year we decided to try another resort and got a rude awakening....... More

We had booked 5 nights at this hotel. The moment we arrived we were depressed. Our room was depressing; however it did overlook the beach. The swimming pool was depressing and even the hotel is located on the worst part of the beach which is quite beautiful and runs for miles. Fortunately, we were not on a package. We left... More

My boyfried and I thought this would be our dream vacation since we really had not been on a real vacation in a while. At the advice of some friends and co-workers who had been to "Paradise" we took their advice and said "Lets' Go". Please keep in mind that these friends/co-workers were Dominican themselves. And the nightmare begins....the room... More
