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.

awful resort

We went as big group of 17 thinking we were going to a real paradise, unfortunately was completely the opposite. We booked for 7 days thinking we wouldn't have enough time to enjoy our vacation, however by the third day we all were ready to leave, bored, had horrible service. Phone line was not working in our rooms, TV was not working, food was old and repetitive each meal got everyone sick. Entertainment was very poor same entertainment each day, shows were cancelled, unorganized activities. on the website it is advertised free WiFi which is not the case it cost $38 us/7 days. The drinks were too sweet can't taste the alcohol. Whatever they advertise is not what you get. Children services were only for couple of hours not the whole day, and nothing planned there, kids were not engaged. will never go there again...

Disapointed

After staying at this resort for a number of years for vacation,We arrived to find the shady area of the beach transformed into the Select Club section. This section is an extra cost and like a private members club. If you wanted any shadewhile on the beach you had to go to the other side of the resort where the beach is winder. This was a big disapointment for our group. As for the rest of the resort and services, these were good and We had no problems.

Awesomeeeeee!!!!

I must say that this resort is probably in the top two best places I've been to. Very clean, the food was great, and the service was top notch. Best bargain and everyone was very nice to us. Especially Francis at the reception desk. He was very courteous and made sure we were taken care of. Definitely will make another stay at Grand Paradise.

The real paradise

First time in DR and honestly I love it!! The people are great, respectful and professional. The pool/beach view is very relaxing including the environment. If it wasn't for the "entertainment team" the place would be a down low. Thanks to them and their professional activities for making my girlfriend & I feeling comfortable and at home. This is the place to be a next vacation here will be for sure.
