I was there in July 2012, with my wife and 5 years old daughter. The hotel is very clean and the the beach is great. I loved the vegetation with palms, wide variety of flowers and nice grass all over. No mosquitoes at all! The staff is friendly and helpful. Food was decent, with plenty of things to choose from....

We had a fun time at the Smile at Grand Paradise Samaná Resort in the town of Las Galaras in November 2011. The resort has all of the basics you'd find at an all-inclusive resort -- plenty of food and alcohol, swimming pools, and a nice beach to soak up the Caribbean sun. The resort is walking distance to the...

We travelled to the GPS July 25 until Aug 1st with our 11 year old. We were looking forward to a week of rest and relaxation. We did travel the 4 hr transfer from Puerto Plata which we were aware of and did enjoy it. It was spectacular to see palm trees overhanging the approaching road while looking at the...

Staying at Grand Paradise July 2012, was truly a great place to relax. I traveled with two of my friends. We stayed in a triple occupancy room which was always clean and our fridge restocked by the time we returned. In the first hour of arriving on the resort we already felt welcomed by many of the staff including Samuel,...

I travelled to Samana with two of my friends. We travelled there to get away from the busy city of Toronto, Canada. The location of this resort is amazing. The resort is not to far from the town, it's about a 10 minute walk. There will be people on the beach that come around trying to sell coconuts and souvenirs,...

My wife and I traveled to Grand Paradise Samana from July 13-20, wish we could have stayed longer. We are independent people and not fussy. A 2 1/2 hour bus ride, long but beautiful countryside, awaits you if you travel with West Jet. You do get a break halfway through for rest room etc. On the trip to the hotel...

Not only is the country amazing, the location is perfect. Right on the beach front with an amazing layout of rooms, pools, bars and restaurants. For me though, the thing that made this hotel amazing and so different from others was the staff. Especially the entertainment team. They were so welcoming and skilled at what they did, it realy set...
