The resort is a 4 star and we had a relaxing and fun time while staying there for a week. The food was good for us. The saff was great, they work hard and get paid very little per month so make sure you tip. Air Canada with us was late both ways and they don't care about their customers...

Sighting was beautiful and the beach as well if you don't mind the sea weed. Also the grounds of the hotel were very nice and well maintained. The room itself was not even worthy to describe, dirty, old towels and bed sheets, cleaned everyday with the same water they cleaned the day before. The first room I got was even...

The first few days here were fine. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The pools and beach are nice too. The food was ok. Many local foods were on the buffet which were very good. It is not a fancy resort, but for the price we were satisfied. What spoiled it for us though, is that both my husband...

Travelled with sbmacmaster (review written below) February 5-12, 2013. To add to her review: We did have some issues with our first room (1156). In general I think this was just a poorly kept room. We had problems with the door handle, shower, safe, bugs, and telephone. After two days of going to the front desk with our problems, we...

We stayed here February 12th for one week and would highly recommend this resort. We enjoyed it because it is small, clean, the staff are friendly and the beach area is unique. Our ground floor room was close to the lobby but found it extremly quite. There were no bugs, everything worked with the exception that we had to have...

We stayed at Grand Paradise Samana in December 2012 as a couple. I did not have much expectations but still it's definitely not a 4 star hotel. Check-in wasn't long, however, they didn't give us the remote control from TV or told us how to use the safe and the instructions on the sticker didn't work. Had to go back...

We visited the resort from Feb 15-18, 2013 and my overall experience was nice and Noris Silverio the reservation specialist at the resort was very helpful with making sure we were taken care of.
