My husband, myself and our friends stayed at the Grand Oct. 16-21. We had a very nice vacation overall. I thought the beachfront room was one of the nicest rooms I have ever stayed in. The staff was wonderful, the beach was beautiful (and I was concerned about this prior to our stay), and the grounds lovely. Breakfast and lunch... More

Heaven on Earth! It would be redundant to describe how posh this resort is. Pure opulence everywhere; from the marble football length size lobby, to the restrooms, every nook and cranny has been thoughtfully and methodically planned. I will attempt to make this review brief, but rest assured there is no worry in booking this wonderful resort for your special... More

We stayed at Iberostar Grand from Oct 6 – 13. Usually we travel south in Jan and Feb and on occasion May/Jun. This trip was in celebration of our 25th anniversary. Here is a little bit about my husband and I, so you can decide if our priorities for an AI are similar to yours. We are in our 40's.... More

This is the first review I have ever submitted to TripAdvisor, although I have used the site for years. I felt compelled to tell everyone what a great time my wife and I had at the Grand Paraiso. The food, the service, the activities, the room, and the overall experience was top notch. Everyone went out of their way to... More

My husband and I just returned from The Grand and had the time of our life. From the moment you walk into the lobby, you are blown away by the decorating of this place. You are greeted with a welcome drink (champagne or a fruity drink). Check-in is done very quickly and then you're whisked away to your room by... More

I just want to start off by saying that the hotel itself is beautiful and the attention to detail is truly amazing. As stated in many reviews the pools are incredible but there is not much of a beach right in front of the Grand. If you like to swim you need to walk to the Lindo to find suitable... More

Our experience at The Grand leads me to determine that it's a PRIZE RESORT IN THE MAKING. Any shortfalls we experienced (and most complaints you'll read about on this site) can really be chalked up to growing pains. My actual rating on this property would be 4.5 as has been said many times before; I'd rather give them a little... More

Slowly settling back into reality… We came back on Sat 9/22 from a fabulous week at the Grand and are slowly settling back into reality. It’s hard to come home after being treated like royalty for an entire week. We’ve been to the Lindo twice and the Maya once and decided to check out the Grand this year. I knew... More

Iberostar was the Ultimate!!! Everyone there treated us like we were royalty. The service was outstanding. The hotel is immaculate. We enjoyed every meal including the spectacular buffets. The beautiful pools and the grounds are kept up on a daily basis. We had a room with an ocean view and it was very romantic no matter what time of the... More

I agree with most of the other reviews here but having stayed here for 14 days, I think we found more issues that led us to wishing we had stayed only about 10 days. We are both well travelled and stay in only the best, we hope! We arrived and were greeted at the main entrance with a towel then... More
