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

This was my first vacation with my mom. We were greeted in the lobby with cold refreshing drinks and very friendly staff. Our rooms were ready upon arrival. The buffet was open and ready for guests. The food was hot, plentiful and hugs variety. A bellhop brought us up to our room, carried our luggage up quite a few stairs.... More

My best friend and I have just recently returned back to the states from what was the most incredible vacation of both of our lives. We've been back for less than a week and we are already planning our next trip to the Grand Paradise Samana. From the minute we stepped foot in the gorgeous reception area, we were treated... More

I returned to Grand Paradise Samana for the 2nd time in 2 months. Upon arrival I was greeted by the lobby personnel in a friendly and timely manner. My room was ready when I arrived. I had a beautiful room with a nice view of the adult pool. When I arrived I was told that the buffet was ready to... More
