Since 1999, this resort has been my go-to locale in the Dominican Republic. I know that other resorts have more amenities and better quality dining, or maybe are closer to the Orange Bazaar, but if you want a beach and surf vacation with some great people there to make your stay fun and enjoyable, this resort is great! The only...

I had a very bad experience here but others I met did not have the same issues. I am an honest about my reviews. This was the worst experience not only by the issues but how management treated me when I complained. When we got to the hotel they provided me with the Junior suite which I DID book, Be...

But then the hiccups began to appear. We were asked daily by the Timeshare reps to go to their presentation. We politely declined every day but there they were the next day...and the next. The pool...it looks so lovely and inviting, yet it is so COLD! By the end of the week there were plastic cups and straws floating in...

We have read very carefully the comments posted on the TripAvisor page and became very much concern with some of the issues brought forward. It would have been very helpful if this issue would have been notified to the management while clients were on premises so the hotel have the opportunity to attend to all the issue in a precise...

My husband and I spent April 12-19th at the Grand Paradise. It was our long awaited honeymoon and we were super excited to sit back, have drinks, eat good food and enjoy our surroundings. Unfortunately, that's not exactly what happened. When we arrived at 130pm, our room wasn't ready and we were ok with that because we knew check-in time...

Leaving this morning from a week vacation at the Grand Paradise, Select Club. We had an exceptional holiday. Staff are amazing especially at the select bar. Food was great. I would suggest only a couple things. The bathroom lighting is not adequate, it would be great if there was another a la cart option and perhaps more of a separation...

The hotel was really clean and well maintained. The food was good. The staff was nice especially the bartender at the beach which was always smiling, dancing and in a good mood. I was happy to get my drink at the beach from Carlos.

We stayed in a suite with a kitchenette - without any dishes, pots or pans or cutlery so it was mostly useless unless you brought your own. The room was ok but a bit of a hike on the 4th floor up and then up a set of inner stairs. The resort overall is in desperate need of an update....
