The new rooms are spacious, clean. The hotel is not too large so you can walk everywhere without getting tired. Beach is nice, soft sand and clean. Overall, it is a very laid back place that is great for relaxing and unwinding away from the hustle and bustle of city life. It is very isolated with limited entertainment so keep... More

To start, the flight with Sunwing was ok served with two or three table spoons of Champagne and for lunch we got another three table spoons of wine and a cheese sandwich, better than the no frill Air Canada flight we had to Jamaica but with less leg room....

We stayed at the Grand Paradise Samana from Dec 8 through Dec 14. The resort is undergoing renovations. It was not really crowded. The renovations certainly did not bother us. The food was included. There were buffets for each meal. Food was plentiful and varied. There was certainly enough for me as one who does not eat any meat and... More

Previously, we stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa and the Grand Bahia Principe El Portillo. The hotel has some great qualities worth mentioning: The grounds are absolutely stunning. We felt like we were... More

I stayed at this hotel for 1 week. I was looking for something low key and lay back environment. It exactly what I expected. The staffs are excellent from front desk to restaurant and around the hotel. They were all helpful and professional. In particular Dairoby Acosta Lopez and Yinauri Balbuena were very nice in helping me with my stay.... More

The worst hotel I have ever visited! First, check-in, waiting a long time and there was no other guests. The toilet did not work, the hair dryer did not work, the phone did not work, the refrigerator did not cool and finally the floor was dirty, full of dust. NOT WORTH IT!

We spent two weeks at the Grand Paradise in September 2013 and they were fabulous. The staff works very hard and long hours. They deserve recognition. The language barrier is workable. There's usually someone around who speaks English, German, French, etc. There are some fun guys who go around the resort taking pictures and you can purchase them later if... More
