This was my 1st trip to the Caribbean and I had a great time.
The staff at the Grand Paradise were extremely helpful and it felt like being in the company of friends, especially the entertainment staff. They were there morning noon and night and were always full of energy.
I feel bad about giving this hotel a 4, it does deserve so much more, but the food really let it down, the Italian restaurant was poor, defiantly quantity over quality, The main buffet restaurant was average food. By our 2nd week we got very bored of eating the pretty much the same thing day in day out. They tried with the theme evenings but somehow it didn't work. I think what let it down for me was that there was no Caribbean food, and surely when going to foreign climbs you want to try the local food or is that just me?
Also my boyfriend went a few years back and he noticed a big difference with the food (back then he was eating lobsters on the beach), someone told us that it was because they just weren't getting enough visitors so they had to make cut backs.. shame it was on the food!!
Anyway it has an amazing beach, and the rooms are pure luxury ours over looked the sea and it was a little slice of paradise...
We did 6 trips and they were excellent value for money ( we used Morgan on the shopping mall, such a lovely guy and truly went out of his way for us, he took us out to see the true Dominican.. it is a beautiful island)
The evening entrainment was a laugh and as a young couple we really enjoyed it!!
