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.

The Good: Beach is perfect, it truly does look like it’s from a paradise. White sand, turquoise water, but also if you like to dive there are little patches of sea weed where we saw many sea life like sea turtles, sea stars, crabs etc. There are many beautiful palm trees that create natural shade and the grass looks like...

The Grand Paradise Samana had everything I was looking for in one tidy package, but with few amenities. I wanted an integrated beach experience where I could leave my stuff in my room and frolic on a pristine beach without the hassle of cooking or driving. The hotel beach, just east of Playa Las Galeras, is beautiful and immaculately maintained.... More

It was a very nice place to visit. If I had a chance to go back again I would go back in a heat beat. The staff were all very nice and friendly. Expecially Mikiki he was very helpful on telling us were the shows were or just making us feel comfortable while staying there.

Nice staff which make an effort to all the clients so that everyone is satisfied. A great thank goes to Samuel Vasquez-Room Manager-who pays always attention that everything is in good... More
