Just back from this resort. very pleased. Things were winding down for the season which meant no line ups for food, drink, towles or beach chairs. So relaxing. Nice and clean and staff were great. We paid a extra $100 for a ocean view room on second story with a nice balcony. Beautiful view.

Stayed there in March 2015 and had a very good time. Lovely beach, warm and clear water; only the lack of chairs was the disappointing part of our vacation; please get fifty more chairs. Our man at the entrance is the best ''Alvaro'', always ready to help or to guide you anywhere you want to go. There is no much... More

Earlier this month I had the pleasure of visiting this little gem in the beautiful region of Samana. I found the Grand Paradise hotel to be very well located in a rather virgin region of Samana where the hotel industry is not yet fully developed, although it wont be long before this area becomes more and more popular.

We have visited this resort 5 previous times and the 6th time was not good. The renovations they have done have made the rooms and reception area beautiful, however in most other areas this resort has definately gone down hill in a year and a half since our last visit. We were greeted ok but all three people behind the... More

Beautiful grounds, good food, stunning beach, great shows and fun disco.... what more could you ask for?! My favorite person at this resort is Mikiki Johnson on the entertainment team... he's hilarious and so much fun! I would return to this resort just for Mikiki's archery and Spanish lessons every day. :)

This hotel is really a grand Paradise! I came back yesterday, April 24th 2015 and I am suppperrr sad. The people are very nice, the beach is amazing, the food is good. In all my trips, this resort is number 1. It is perfect for kids, couples, even to travel alone. The staff is amazing, Chulo and Lovence the photographers... More
