We went to Grand Paradise Samana on a last minute trip for our anniversary and had a great experience. When we checked in the front desk girl Gina spoke very good english and was super friendly and helpfull. And even during our stay we spoke do Gina if needed more water or whatever, service was great. We got the safe for our passports ($15) but worth the peace of mind. The resort is very clean and well kept. Beach is beautifull with powder white sand with great snorkeling, even went out on a kayak for first time (free to use). Beach restaurant is right next to the beach so minimal walking and food was great even had ice cream. During our stay we had three on the beach candle light dinners...AMAZING...is all I can say. There is three pools, the side by side kids/adult which is ok just plain BUT and the third one little further down the resort is adults only pool with a nice water feature (there was no one at this pool ever so it was like our own). Enertainment staff has activities, I did the aerobics in the ocean...COOL.., also there is a nightly show. Since we were there just before Halloween they had a show and decorations at the disco.Overall the food was very good, there is a chef making eggs to order for breakfast and a pasta for dinner along with an extensive buffet (bread was very fresh). Coffee was good too but instead of the hot milk they usually put out I would use the cold milk by the cereals. ALSO at the pool bar they have a yummy capuccino machine (they will even put a little alcohol in it if you ask)There is a few excursions you can book with Ramon we did one is was fun. We met lots of very nice people, shout out to: Catelyn and Robert, Annie and Steve and the very interesting Terry and Trudy. Tip: we flew into Puerto Plata airport so the bus ride to this resort was 3 and a half hours. But were told if you fly right into Samana airport its about one hour bus ride.
