Just got home last week. This is the nicest resort we've been to. The food, entertainment, and of course the Bar's were outstanding. The beaches were clean and well kept. There was security visible late at night and we felt very secure.

There is nothing Grand about this hotel except for the overall size with over 700 rooms and in addition what isn't apparent until you get there, is that this hotel has 3 sister properties in the Grand Bahia chain next door to it whereby everyone from those hotels can share the Bavaro facilities which makes it a zoo.
