First off, I went with my 2 friends. I'm from Toronto, Ontario. My room didn't have a balcony. Second they serve the same food everyday, with some differences here and there. The quality of food was at best a 2.5/5. Thirdly and here's the kicker they water down the alcohol. I hardly drink, maybe once in 3 weeks on average... More

We just came back from our vacation at the Grand Paradise. I asked for an ocean view and ended up with a suite (overlooking the pool and ocean in the background) - which was great for the 4 of us. Kids had their own room (1 slept on a made up bed and the other on a sofa) but it... More

It's almost been a year since I vacationed at this resort and I'm writing now to give my opinion after seeing such terrible reviews. The hotel: The grounds are really beautiful and covered in green grass, plants, and gorgeous gardens. There were a few dirty areas, like near garbage bins and service areas. The lobby was breathtaking when we first... More

A week before leaving for the trip, we e-mailed the resort and asked about ground transportation from the airport. They arranged for a car to meet us. They had a sign with our name on it. It was $35 US and worth it. When we arrived, RCI had arranged for a person to meet us at the door. He showed... More

We spent a week at this resort, and honestly were a little upset upon arrival as saw it listed as 4.5 stars... But later on we found the beauty in this place - even though we were told it is high season now, it was not overcrowded and staff did a good job making us feel comfortable during our stay.... More

Let me start by saying that I am not the type of person to write a review about anything, but after reading all the comments about Grand Paradise and recently visiting it myself, I think my opinion is important for anyone that is planning to visit this resort. The only reason why I gave this resort a 3 is because... More

First off, to be fair I am comparing the experience for my first All Inclusive to 14 cruises I have been on. From all the research I did on the resort, I can say that I was pleasantly surprised.
