Went to Grand Paradise Playa Dorada. Everything was great. The hotel was fun, the food ok but needs improvement and variety. Excellent customer service.The beach is beautiful. Each room's decor takes you to a tropical paradise with floral fabrics and oak-colored furniture. All rooms feature flat-screen TVs, walk-in closets, in-room safes and glass doors that open onto balconies.

Went to Grand Paradise Playa Dorada for 2 weeks through an RCI exchange. RCI's listing refers to it as Paradise Beach Club by VRC, but they are the same. Was there the last week of April/first week of May which was great as the resort is not crowded at all. We were in a 2 bedroom unit which consists of...

Everything was great accept the activities staff. For a job where you are supposed to be nice and social and interact with the guests and fill them in with what the resort has to offer, they lack greatly. I found them sitting around more then interacting with the guests, or they were not to be found. I had one particular...

My boyfriend and I travelled to this resort the end of March, early April and we had such an amazing time! The resort is only about 20 minutes away from the airport which was great since we had a late flight in. Our room was on the fourth floor, and included a staircase leading up to a kitchen, living room...

The Grand Paradise appreciate very much when a client takes the time from their busy schedule to write to us expressing their satisfaction for the time spent at the hotel on their vacation.

Loved this holiday and would definitely recommend this hotel. Staff were very friendly and approachable . Location was spot on .the food was of high standard and so was the cleaning of the rooms. Maids left water and soft drinks in the mini fridge every day too free of charge. (Or as part of the all inclusive expirience) the only...

Since 1999, this resort has been my go-to locale in the Dominican Republic. I know that other resorts have more amenities and better quality dining, or maybe are closer to the Orange Bazaar, but if you want a beach and surf vacation with some great people there to make your stay fun and enjoyable, this resort is great!
