Got a Groupon deal. Facility is a bit dated, but clean and maintained. The room, overlooked the garden with a balcony and was kept spotless by housekeeping. Yeah, there was a ceiling leak in the bathroom. Yeah, the water was lukewarm in the morning. And low pressure when everybody else is taking a shower so there's not a lot of... More

The beach was beauriful. The resort was very relaxing with amazing entertainment. The staff was very friendly. Mikiki Johnson and Youssef Dariff made my vacation a great one! Robert at the bar served tasty drinks and Alberto of the scuba department made my first experience down south to The Domican Republic unforgetable! Gracias!! :)

Myself and 5 friends (ages 21-23) had our springbreak vacation at this property. Firstly, the staff was very welcoming and friendly. The entertainment group made sure to get us involved in their many activities and performances. The rooms were clean and safe (ocean view). The buffet food was usually good but some items weren't of the greatest quality. However, there... More

This was our second visit to Grand Paradise and we traveled with 5 friends and stayed for two weeks. If you're looking for gourmet food and fancy chocolates on your pillow at night, Grand Paradise isn't for you. However if you love virgin beaches and natural beauty it can't be beat. When we arrived in our room we were greeted... More
