Our Opinion

A great luxury resort. This location is doing whatever it can to constantly improve various aspects of it. The beach here is amazing - very spacious, with white sand, and blue water. There are plenty of loungers available around the beach, so you'll never have to play the 'towel game' early in the morning. Amazing bar options to choose from, as well as food options. The staff and team is attentive and always ensure that all of your needs and concerns are met. There are also plenty of excursions and activities, so there is never a shortage of things to do.


Overview

Simply amazing. The staff both in the hotel and by the pool are incredible. These workers are so passionate about their jobs and it's so easy to see. Big thanks to our favorite people here by the pool for making vacation so much fun every single day. Thank you Chris, Stephanie, Sara, Roger, Dani, Fabio and Ithiel. We will miss you and we will be back! Wonderful team.

  • Melissa G :
Fantastic Resort!!!!

We have stayed at Gran Caribe twice in the last two years. The staff is helpful, friendly and go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. The resort is located within walking distance to great shopping. Gran Caribe exceeded our expectations both times. We love this resort so much that we booked for a third time and will be there next week. If your looking for a relaxing vacation on a beautiful beach, look no further and book at this resort.

Very nice and family friendly. Beach had little more seaweed than I like but staff worked hard to keep clean. Plenty of restaurants on site to choose from. Breakfast buffet was our favorite. Swimming pool was good but could be larger. Kids area was great , nice little water slides.
