Make sure to get a cocktail from elvis and book... More

The Grand Paradise appreciate very much when a client takes the time from their busy schedule to write to us expressing their satisfaction for the time spent at the hotel on their vacation. Our staff works very hard to insure that our clients are satisfied with the services of the hotel, and for them this is very gratifying. We look... More

The room itself was nice, not the fanciest, but honestly when the plan for your vacation is to stay on the beach the room doesn't really matter.

I did travel to this resort with a friend in a wheel chair. This place was suppose to be wheel chair friendly. A room was requested for this purpose. Separate transfer from airport to hotel was requested. First, the transfer involved a van that the driver had no experience dealing with a wheel chair. Getting my friend into the van... More
