Went to Grand Paradise in Las Galeras Samana and it was great! I was there with my boyfriend from feb. 18th-25th, 2012. The hotel was nice, it is not a 5 star luxury resort, but it was nice and clean. The resort had lots of bars and not only had the main buffet area but also another one by the beach which was great if you wanted to have a quick lunch by the beach instead of going all the way to the other side of the hotel. The beach was beautiful, needs a little more sand to have that caribbean feeling but it was good. The staff was AMAZING! they were super nice and friendly. Internet is a little slow but you'll get through it if everything you need it to check your e-mail and facebook. The entertainment team is amazing and the disco is a lot of fun too! I would definetly go back! The people that write bad reviews are probably too picky and that is why they did not enjoy their trip. The rooms need a little more light, coffe maker, matches and some notepad and a new shower but all in all it was fine. I am not very picky and just enjoyed my time there, you get what you pay for. There are a lot of French people and they have their own activities, which is fine but we are not allowed in their activities, but they are allowed in ours. Obviously you have to be smart as to what you eat, you can get sick anywhere, in a 2, 3, 4 or 5 star resort, try to stay away from raw vegetables and the fish. If you want a nice quiet vacation and don't want to spend too much, this is a great option.
