We just went October 27th to November 3rd. Our flight with Air Transit was amazing!! Our trip started off really well by the staff greeting us right as we got of the bus with cold drinks and "Elvis" being the bartender. This really created a good first impression and felt like they were welcoming us into their home. The rooms... More

The party was fun and u had a great time. The staff especially Jonathan javier kept it entertaining and everyone looked like they were having a blast. The music was good, the costumes and decorations made it feel like a Halloween party in North America.

The animation guys are very friendly. Even if it's tough to get the guests to join in activities. Jonathan Javier and Luciano were especially outstanding. The rooms are clean, the water pressure and hot water is good.

As annual cruisers, we (my wife and I and our friends) took a chance on an All Inclusive for the first time to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. At first blush, the resort is a little dated and could use some renovations and touch ups but it is important to point out that almost every day we were there, we... More

Went to Grand Paradise from Oct. 13 to 20, 2014. First time in Puerto Plata. Resort is a mere 15 minutes from the airport. Arrived at about noon at resort. The check in was well organized and we were able to get rooms right away. I would say resort was about 1/4 full. Well, that is, until they let the... More
