Our Opinion
Good value for what you pay. The Grand Paradise is one of the better 3 star resorts in Puerto Plata. Watch out for the Loft Attic rooms as they are small and up a spiral stair case. If you're watching your budget, this is a good choice.
Overview
Surrounded by splendid tropical gardens, this hotel is ideally located on Playa Dorada beach a short walk from shopping centre and the Robert Trent Jones designed golf course. Known for its superior amenities and top-notch staff, the Paradise also offers great food and uniquely designed accommodation. The hotel's eco-friendly design comprises a cluster of Caribbean-Victorian two-storey buildings with white-tile roofs and latticed balconies.

Location: In Playa Dorada complex, on the beach, a 10 minute drive to town and 20 minutes from the airport.

Best hotel staff I've ever met

this is my third time at this hotel and I've got to say the staff here have become like my second family. They walk in to work and say hi to every guest they see, the games are always entertaining and so much fun. I must say I love coming here and evelynn, Jael, Yancarlos, Jose and all the rest of bar staff and entertainment they all remember you when you walk in the resort. I will always come back over and over.

Great trip for 2!

The staff members are extremely friendly and welcoming. They provide great service. The buffet food is great as it offers different variety of foods throughout the day. You can start your day off with a delicious omelet and a nice plate of fruits. The nightly shows are entertaining and fun. Their disco is lively with great music. And they are not cheap with the alcohol! The rooms are well maintained. Also, the excursions they offer at the hotel are awesome and adventurous as they have all kinds of activities to do. My boyfriend and I went to the Demajagua falls and it was really fun. I recommend 👍

Great experience

The service here is amazing. The staff treats everyone like family and there wasnt any trouble i read about online in DR. This was such a nice experience. Im surprised this place isnt at least 4 star. The food was great at the buffet. The animation staff was very fun and encouraged everyone to be a part of the fun. The bartenders were awesome dudes. Yancarlos and mauricio were two of the coolest guys we met in DR. They were part of the animation staff and always made sure everyone was entertained and having a ball.

Amazing Staff

This is our second year coming to this resort and I have to say that the staff is super energetic and are so friendly! One of the staff members ("Happy Happy" real name is Yancarlos) is so full of energy and so friendly with everyone! The food is great, hotel is clean, and overall, had a really great time!

This is the second time we visit this resort and we absolutely love it. Rooms are nice, food is good, and entertainment is great! The staff is amazing. Carlos (happy happy) in particular is great at his job and extremely entertaining. Always gives it his all with a smile on his face! I would definitely recommend this resort.
