had stayed there 2 years earlier as our first experience in the Dominican. The hotel was okay then when considering the price. Chose it again this time from one of the last minute sell off sites as a "devil you know" choice with a "superior ocean view room". Well that turned out to be on the ground level and apparently...

We just returned last night from the Paradise Beach Resort. The four of us had all been to better resorts but considering we were there for under $600 cdn it was great. The location is very good with two great stretches of beach, located across form the shopping plaza (expensive but convienient). Weather was beautiful, 30+ every day, some rain... More

Upon arriving to "Paradise" beach resort, I was surprised at the great service we received while checking in. Everything went smoothly, until we got to our room. Now before I continue my story, I should say that this was my third time in the Dominican Republic in 14 months. I've been to several other countries in the area as well,... More

I just returned form the Paradise Beach Club and after reading the reviews by other patrons I was very worried! I was pleasantly surprised. The room was large, clean NO bugs the shower was hot and worked well every time I used it. The air conditioning worked perfectly. The food was fine about average for an all inclusive and I've...

I must have read 100 reviews before I left for my vacation and I was a little worried. My boyfriend and I arrived in DR on March 12th and had a amazing week. I really don't have any complaints, the food was good, my room was great (I would suggest a superior room), and the staff were a great bunch... More

We were at the Paradise Beach Resort in early March 2005. I had read reviews on Trip Advisor that were not kindly. I don't know what they were referring to. Our room was very large and clean. Unfortunately we had to change rooms because we were in direct earshot of the nightly music and my husband wasn't happy with that..but... More

Just got back yesterday from "Paradise," and I hope to give those who are contemplating staying here a fair and accurate representation of the guest experience at this hotel. First, I should say that I stayed at this hotel 6 years ago (in 1999) and it is a far different place now! My boyfriend and I are both in our... More

After reading some reviews about this resort, my friend and I (both in our 20's) were kind of hesitant, but really looking forward to getting away, relaxing and partying the night away. We vacationed at Paradise in December 2004. We booked a last minute deal and paid about $600 CDN each. After arriving in DR and being welcomed by some... More

Have been to this resort a number of times. My daughter was getting married in Feb '05 and chose Paradise for it's intimate atmosphere and excellent beach. We were a little nervous for the actual wedding because of the long distance arrangements. Must say nothing has changed. The quality of the hotel, maintenance and service have remained excellent.
