We visited as a family of four, with two young teenagers. This is a family-oriented resort so, if you are a party animal, just forget it and try Bahia Principe in Samana. Most people there were couples with children or couples experiencing their second honeymoon. The food was amazing in terms of both, diversity and presentation. The same goes for... More

The holiday package was great value for money during the off season, although I would recommend better quality resorts in the Samana area, especially during high season when prices increase. In North American standards, this is a three star resort and you receive three star treatment and services. Reception staff leave a lot to be desired in terms of client... More

This resort is very relaxing but needs a few updates here and there. The food is your typical local fare and the wait staff are very attentive. The weekends are very busy with the locals taking advantage of special deals to fill the resort so can be a little annoying. During the week, very quiet with mostly tourists looking for... More

My friend and I went to the Grand Paradise Samana from July 11th-July 18th 2015. Needless to say, I was excited before the trip started, as I've never been to the Dominican before. However, by the end of the trip, I couldn't wait to get home to Canada. Pros of the resort: -property was beautiful -beach was amazing (I was... More

It was first time. Very good hotel. Nice staff. Many thanks to Alvaro, supervisor of reception desk. All staff, maids, security guards, waiters, entertainment staff, sport staff (that Marocan-Dominican descend guy) were professionals. Definitely, I recommend and come back to that paradise.

Went with mom, dad, brother and two sisters. Didnt really know what to expect as this was our first time in DR. To keep it short and simple, PROS: Staff were great! Extremely friendly--not overbearing. They know when to keep and stop talking. The beach is probably one, if not the resort's best asset. Amazing beach with coconut trees everywhere... More
