I'll point off the bad things first which is two things, the wait for the room and the people wasting my time trying to sell me a time share. (no bueno) Now the good, the food was great, the staff also, the room was very nice and clean, the pool bar is outside the pool but very close by and... More

We stayed here for 4 days 3 nights. The food at the gourmet and Brazilian restaurant were amazing, but avoid the Mexican one as it was it not good (I am Mexican so I know Mexican food pretty well). The place was always clean and well taken care of. The people were very friendly and polite. As I have mentioned... More

We stayed at this hotel from the 30th of June to the 14th of July- we are a family of 4 with two teenage children. This is not 4/5 star by UK standards- but as we have travelled extensively we were expecting this. The room was very basic- not as pictured in the Thomson brochure- they must have used the... More

The hotel is in a good location but it needs updating and good maintance. During my stay, the telephone in the room didn't work and TV only had local channels. Plus the bathroom wash basin plug didn't work and the sealant around the bath tub was faulty. The air conditioned could not be adjusted so it was either very cold... More

We were actually at this resort the same time as other recent reviewers and i can totally agree with the comments. Our first problem arose when we were shown to our 2 rooms in Block 4. The rooms were far from clean and quality was really poor, broken furniture, wardrobe doors off their runners. certainly not 4 star (or 4Tplus)... More

As people can actually see from previous reviews I would like to think that my comments and observations are very fair and unbiased. The review that I am about to write is a little toned down as I am preparing a legal case against our tour operators and the hotel. So here we go - We arrived on Sunday 29th... More

So we (my wife, our 6 month old and myself) just spent a week at the Grand Marien from July 5th to the 12th. So let me give you a run down of our experience there :) Check in: check in was quick and pleasant, the staff was very cordial. There unfortunately was no welcome drink which was a little... More

The hotel is beautiful a true paradise, like most hotels in Dominican Republic! :) However, some things made our experience here... Not so great. I’ll list a couple: Rooms: 1. The toilet in our bathroom wasn’t functioning well, every time we tried to discharge it will take almost 5 minutes maybe more, while you stand there looking at the “thing”…... More

There was lots of choice and nothing for me to complain about. The drinks are great too lots of choice and branded rum which was nice,... More
