A group of of went to this resort nov 16-23. Where do I start.? My room had no air conditioning and the toilet flushed only after I filled the tank myself. I had maintenance come several times but they had no idea what they were doing. Who fixes a toilet with a screw driver? My friends next door had leaks... More

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
