Stayed at Grand Paradise March 17 - 24. Good flights with Air Canada, on time in each direction.
Our third and best D.R. vacation this winter, following Blau Punta Cana and Barcelo Puerto Plata. Good choice of food at the Buffet and, unlike the Blau, I did not hear of guests getting sick. The Restaurant staff work long hours for low wages but I did not see much tipping.
The saturday evening show was especially good. The friendly animation team organised activities - Daniel, Yessi, Mikiki and others.
A beach front area is roped off and there is an exhorbitant charge of $15 to snorkel in this " Natural Aquarium " I have no objection to a local hiring equipment but to enforce a charge on a public beach is outrageous.
Booked a National Park tour with Familia Tours in Las Galeras ( next to Chez Michel ) Augusto gives good prices. Take a flashlight for the caves.
Good value for money and likely to return.
