Erik is the charismatic leader of many beach activities, as well as been a front line performer at many of the enthusiastic nightly shows. Front desk service was excellent. We had a... More

I stayed at this hotel for 4 days and 3 nights in the beginning of July. It was an amazing perfect escape from reality. Everything was perfect. The staff gave excellent service and were very devoted to customer satisfaction. The beach is beautiful. The water is crystal clear and warm, very little waves. The coconut trees line the beaches so... More

This wasn't the first time I had travelled to Dominican Republic or to Grand Paradise Samana. The hotel itself is clean, well kept, the food good and entertainment too. However, now that I see the big picture, would hesitate to return again. The male staff, beware ladies, as charming as they all may seem will take advantage of any woman... More

I stayed at this hotel 4 nights and it was a big mistake. The remote control did not work on my TV and they didn't bring me one, instead they asked me to go to reception to get one. The toilet tank was damage and even though i reported it they never went to fix it. i had to keep... More

We stayed at this resort the second week of July and we can say this place is awesome !!! The rooms are fresh, modern and well kept. The entire resort looks good, the food and drinks are better than we expected, BBQ dinner by the beach or a special dinner invitation are only few surprises the resort may hold for... More

This was my first all-inclusive trip so I have nothing to compare my experience with, but I really enjoyed my stay at the Grand Paradise Samana. The beach was fantastic; beautiful and quaint. Zero bugs. The grounds were beautiful. The buildings could use some updating but they were still nice and open. I went into the trip knowing it was... More

This was my second trip to the Grand Paradise Samana this year, and I was not disappointed my second time back. I loved it just as much as I did the first time. The room in building 5 was great (we requested to stay there because we liked the location so much last visit.) The food in the buffet was... More

I had the misfortune of booking 7 nights at this dreadful place. I am leaving after 2 nights. There are so many things wrong with this resort that it would take a book to describe them, so I will only name what I liked. There is plenty of water for a shower! That is the only good thing I have... More
