We stayed as a family of 4 the week of New Year. The resort is OK, food was good, but not great, the food selection was adequate. Drink selection was horrible - cocktails were made from local drinks, no international drinks were anywhere in a bar...not counting Spanish wine in plastic containers, which by itself was absolutely un-drinkable. We spend...

Negatives At check in, at night, the desk said your room is down there ( ie: go find it). We found it after wandering a bit but couldn't turn the lights on. The bell boy arrived and showed us how to turn on the electricity with one of the keys. The other key didn't work. The next morning we bought...

We just returned from a week at the Grand Paradise. This was a 3.5 star resort, and was a nice cheap week, but it was confirmation that you get what you pay for. Reading reviews ahead off time helped us to keep our expectations a bit lower so that we were not too disappointed as we knew what to expect....

What to say? This resort was clean, but "tired". The staff were generally pleasant and helpful. The food at the buffet restaurant was very good. (At the a la carte restaurants - not so much). The beds were comfortable, BUT the phone never worked, there was no lock for our balcony door, the A/C was very noisy, the water took...

Great holiday with my family. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Beach was beautiful. Nightly entertainment was good. Juan Tate was very helpful and friendly employee. The bartenders were great. Had our drinks ready when we were walking up to the bar.

Nice resort - inexpensive and clean. Buffet food was great - lots of choices and tasty. Entertainment not the best for adults but a relaxing enjoyable vacation. Pool was great and the grounds a pleasure to walk around. Service staff all very friendly and helpful. We were 7 adults travelling for a week. My only advice was be careful going...

I got a room facing the pool ground floor. I didn't know until the last 2 days that they were temporarily using the other restaurant as the buffet. They opened the regular buffet the last 2 days. so I had a different feeling then. However the food wasn't very good. Bland , the same and mushy so just be careful....

We wanted an inexpensive escape during high season but wanted better food than Cuba offers. Grand Paradise fit the bill. We weren't interested in excursions; just wanted to relax on the beach and catch up on our reading. Shade is hard to come by on the beach. We found a couple of areas with palm trees on the left beach...

Stayed at Gran Paradise from January 6th thru January 9, 2017 and I couldn't be happier with my selection. I reserved a regular room but I was upgraded to a suite, which was worth it. I'd never slept in a hotel so calm at night. The beach is a long strip shared by 5 more hotels. I found the beach...
