Grand Paradise Playa Dorada Questions

I'm curious if any one can tell me what the electrical outlets are in the rooms and if I need to bring an exchange plug ??? Also do they hand out beach/pool towels or do we need to bring our own ??? Any info would be helpful,

THANKS !!

Tracy,

No exchange plug needed as outlets are 2 pin flat.

You are given towel cards on arrival which you then exchange for pool/beach towels, do not lose you towels as they will charge you for replacing them !

Same plugs as you are used to. However I would bring a small (6-8 outlet) power strip. Sometimes the outlets are recessed and your chargers (phone, computer, tablet etc) may not fit in the recessed area. Also most of the time there are not enough outlets in the room so this will give you the option of more outlets.

Do they have slushy drinks here? Is there a casino nearby? Trying to get some some pros together to help my cause!

Hi 152Water,

Yes they have slushy drinks made in a slushy-style drink dispenser. Concerning the casino there is a small 'American Casino' located right beside the resort.

Yes there is a $US10 per person Tourist Card on entry and a $US20 per person Departure Tax but both are included in your packages from Canada unless you are flying with Sunwing/Signature.
