I also loved the fact that there were always chairs anytime of the day..this was amazing. The resort was very clean, our room was very nice and clean and we had... More

This tropical resort is nestled away in Samana Bay at Las Galeras. The location is remote, given the long drive involved, but let me assure you that it provides you with such natural beauty & a scenic Paradise. Good name. The property had everything we needed for our two week stay. We arrived in the night & were given a... More

Found some food at the restaurant on the beach and you can get drinks in the disco (dancing stops at midnight but the bar stays open until 2 am). Satisfied our hunger and... More

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....

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
