Hi Folks, I should have written this review about a month ago, while it was fresher, but hope this helps future guests at Grand Paradise. We traveled to Grand Paradise, Samana from December 26, 2013 to January 7th, 2014, via West Jet Vacations. Transfer to and from hotel was fine--the drive through Samana (we have been there before) is pleasant,...

My wife and I joined another couple for a two week vacation at the Grand Paradise from Jan 30th - Feb 13th. Our advanced planning for the trip included reading many reviews. I can now state that the vast majority of bad reviews are far from the truth. I can only imagine that most were written by people who would...

This was our third winter trip to this resort and I would still recommend it for quiet winter escape. First 2 times was with Sunwing with terrible flight times (you arrive in the dark) and this time was with Air Canada Vacations; we stayed 2 weeks this time Jan 26 - Feb 6. When we arrived, there were no porters...

We also came back very sick (3 days in emergency) from this resort. Someone was ill there and just passed on the germs. Although there was an inspector in the dining room all week (January 11-18), people just aren't smart enough to practice simple hygiene (place the serving utensils on the plate after use, not in the food containers, use...

We traveled to GPS last week - just got home last night from a 7 day stay. We had an Ocean-view room in building 12 (1221), King sized bed, newly updated room. The room is a good size, very clean each day. No complaints on the room itself at all! The Ocean-view room however, I wouldn't pay extra for it!...

First impressions: Check in was on the bus from the airport, which was very nice, as we had just to find our room once we arrived. The reception area is pleasant, but unfortunately always seemed to be filled with smokers, so we didn’t spend any time there. Everything looked clean and tidy. The grounds: Everything was immaculate. There is a...

Do Not stay here. Not only did you have to put your toilet paper in the garbage beside the toilet, but sometimes the toilet would not flush. When it did flush it would leak on the floor. The floor in my room was covered in Calcification. This could have been cleaned and scraped off the floor, but the room was...

Had an amazing vacation. This hotel is better than going to Punta Cana! It has a relaxing feel and the staff is amazing. Wilfredo ensured that everything was right with my hotel room.
