Just back from Grand Paradise

Was very surpised, Great resort not too big. clean rooms.

Beach wonderful, lots of chairs and shade. Food was impresive, Went to three resturants, Seafood, Asian, Itilain, Buffert always something great cooking.

Pools very clean and large.

Hated the markets and the aggressive people in selling, There is batering and there is batering in Punta Cana, They do not want you to look only buy, very rude if you do not buy in thier stall. Tours very expensive and lots of Bus time in all of them.

Each tour about $75.00 US a person.

No night life in Punta Cana other than your resort, and

I would not recommend that you go out at night.

We went on one tour, which was the Catalina island tour. The cost was $89.00 US per person, We stopped at a old village for about a hour to look around, then on to La Romana, we took a boat to the island, lunch, and then 2/1/2 hours of snorkling, Great water and lots of fish, (Bring suncreen there). We also talked to people that went on the big truck tour into the mountains, that seemed to be fun. There was also a tour to the city Santa Dimango, but that is a long day, I guess you leave about 6 am and get back around 8.

The room that we were in was 4301. It did not overlook the pool or ocean but it did overlook a garden area and a building from the resort next door , Beaches. It was very quite,

and no noise at night. Try and say in building 4 & 6, as the other side of the resort the rooms at the back of the buildings face a construction site, 24-7 they run, so not a great view.

We also hear that Beaches has a larger casino with tables.

There is also a very large casino in Town with stuff going on, Again about $12.00 US cab ride each way.
