Grand paradise Samana March 31-April 7
BEWARE=4 hours from Puerto Plata Airport by bus/taxi
If we would have known this we would not have come to this place
Upon arrival in Dominican each person has to pay US$10.00
Many people were not aware of this and were scrambling for it
We arrived at our hotel at midnight after travelling 12 hours that day!
They did have fruit punch and sandwiches available upon arrival
The next day we had to get ourself s organized by purchasing a key for the safety deposit box $15.00. Make sure you have it ready when you go get it from the front desk at the same time pick up a remote control for your TV . The room key, you get just 1, activates the power in your room once you take it out of the slot to leave and lock your room all power goes off as well as air conditioner hence a hot room after spending a day at the beach! An extra room key will cost you $5.00 a day. Previously people mentioned an upgrade to an ocean view room cost $40.00 not now it was $15.00 A DAY per person, last WIFI is available throughout the hotel But at a price of $65.00 a week Internet is also available at $5.00 for half an hour, which you'll need just to connect, as it is very slow! Make sure you have US20.00 left to leave this country! Now after you read this and you are okay with all this and decide to book a trip to grand paradise Samana you will have a lovely time rooms were large and clean, the buffet offered a wide variety of food for breakfast they had a crepes station going as well an egg station where you could order them anyway you like them. For lunch and diner they always had a spaghetti station going as well as some type of meat station, they offer a large variety of salad bar items, plenty of desserts and breads. HOT Tea and coffee always available. There is a specialty coffee bar at the main pool. There are plenty of chairs by the beach and both pools, now shade is harder to come by, along the beach there are lots of palmtrees but they offer little shade, by the smaller pool there are umbrellas. The man made reef to the right when facing the ocean is a cool place to snorkel cost $15.00 pp but worth it, everything you need is supplied and you will be able to see at least hundred different species of fish. A walk to the small town to the left out of the front entrance along the beach offers you a variety of souvenirs, there are quite a few stores past the supermarket as well, the farther you venture the cheaper it becomes! Day trips can be booked here as well, cheaper then those offered at the hotel. A great relaxing time was had aside from the extra charges and the 4 hr trip to the airport in Puerto Plata
