Stayed at the Grand Paradise with my husband and 2 teenage kids, Nov 8-15th. The beach is beautiful, no question about that. The resort does get busier on the weekends with the locals and that was the only time the disco seemed to be in use. Would have been nice if it was open during the week with Dominican music.... More

I love Samana. It is a beautiful and stunning countryside. There are wonderful landscapes and beautiful beaches. If you visit someday Dominican Republic, don’t forget to go to Samana town. It is in the Northeast of the capital. If you go, use the highway done for the government. They are three expensive tolls, but the landscapes in the road that... More

Recently visited for the Halloween weekend. The Halloween show was nice and the entertainment team tries really hard to make sure you have a good time. The rooms, pools and facility over all were very clean. The view by the beach was beautiful. Cons and the reason I will not return; the food gets repetitive after the second day. I... More

We travelled to this hotel for our honeymoon and it was beautiful, the rooms were cleaned well and regularly and on arrival we were greeted with a large fruit plater. The staff were friendly and the food was a great variety. There was not much on the entertainment side but over all an amazing holiday in paradise. We also went... More

The Grand Paradise Samana is a very clean hotel. The price I pay is very reasonable. They have a show every night at 9:45pm and we really enjoyed it. The people there are very friendly and we got really good service served by Mikiki Johnson.

My daughter and I returned for the third time this year. The reasons......the location and resort staff. Special thanks as always to Samuel Vasquez for his warm welcome. The resort would not be the same without the fantastic animation team. A special thank you to Pinky, Mikiki, Lima, Bomby, Yonathan, Kaki, Yessi, Olga and Daniel. We miss you already !!!
