So I read all the reviews before I left. I had already booked the trip before reading the reviews. I was expecting the worse. I was pleasantly suprised. There was no wait to check in, bell hop helped with luggage, key worked right the first time.The rooms were updated and clean. Water in the fridge everyday, even a 2L bottle... More

We just returned from Grand Paradise yesterday; so I wanted to write this while it was still fresh, as I depend on other's reviews when booking my vacations. My feedback is that there is a reason everyone is so back and forth on this resort. It is not for everyone, but if you are looking to get away inexpensively...MY OPINION... More

My purpose of the trip was to attend a wedding. The wedding was cancelled so a few of us decided to go as a vacation to relax. Day one - Check in was a disaster. We were told that becuase of the wedding being cancelled we had to pay more for the room. We did not know that you had... More

My husband and I traveled to Grand Paradise(GP) from March 15 - 22, 2010. This was our first trip down south to an all inclusive, and here is what we thought. We arrived at 9:00 p.m. and were checked in in about 5 minutes. They gave us a room key, and the bell hop took our bags to our door... More

Where do I start? We did a lot of research and wanted to give this resort a try based on price, newly renovated rooms and reviews. Yes, I did read that late Feb-early March, the resort hosted a large amount of grade 12 spring breakers/grad trip with so-called chaperones, so we thought when we went on March 25-April 1 2010,...

My Daughter got Married in April at this Resort, and it was great. The Staff, The Hotel, The Rooms, The Beach, The Food, The Drinks, everything was as good as any 41/2 and 5 Star Hotel in Mexico, Aruba, Punta Cana and many other places I've been to. I would recommend this Hotel to everyone

Just got back from the Dominican on April 8th, and it was probably one of the best vacations I've ever been on. I went with my parents and 2 of my friends, and was a little skeptical about going after reading some of the reviews posted by others. After going, I don't really understand what people were complaining about. When... More
