I stayed in this resort as a sole vacationer from Sept.30 to Oct.07 with Air Transat. I had vacationed in Cuba, Mexico several times but this was my first time to Dominican Republic. Everything is above expectations and I am very satisfied. Considering the price I paid, This is absolutely a great deal. The resort is beautiful and well maintained. All the employees work very hard and are very kind/ helpful. One individual I must mention is Sahoni who works in the buffet as a hostess. She is very sweety and professional. Her smile makes my vacation more colorful.

Nice hotel but the most amazing people

First off i would like to mention we paid bellow $700 pps including an ocean view upgrade in the 1000 block (room 1113) amazing view from this room on the wilder side of the resort, we had a resident cat that stayed with us after the second day and he took care of any other intruders, he is a small male cat gray and black with a tail like a racoon so a little saucer of milk will make you best friends and he really works for his keep was our first time in Samana and this hotel, loved it from day one but we booked this last minute so i did not look at the differences between select, premium etc so was quite surprised to have so many restrictions but it is a very small resort compared to other places we have been. so at first i was upset.. can't go here can't go there etc and then inquired for an upgrade wich was about $500 for the week... to cool off we took a walk to las galeras, a very short 10 minute walk and absolutely loved the little city so decided then that insted of spending $500 extra at the hotel we would go to town and have some fun everyday so if you plan on staying at the hotel.. take the upgrades in advance as they seem to be much cheaper, if not the town is fun and cheap and locals are fantastic, there is a french restaurant open very early called la Marseillaise and the owner Michèle is a very very nice person and she serves amazing seafood for lunch between 15 and 30 usd for the big stuff. a must when in town or if not she has ice cold beer and breakfest as well. the staff at this hotel was amongst the nicest we have encountered, from the front desk to maintenance people wow what a bunch.. if you don't get along with people here you got a serious problem, the food is amazing (except the italian restaurant..sorry) but everything else is just perfect and with this staff its even better. Guests were mostly from Germany and were very nice to talk with, if any of you are reading this HELLO to Alex. Mrs Uve and his beautiful wife and all the people we had the pleasure to meet. we also spent time with a great couple from the north of France BONJOUR les ch'tis !! and of course we naturally flocked together with other crazy Quebecers. a real blast we had and would return anytime if the price is right A special thank you to Sahomi (hostess but should in my opinion be a server, she is perfect for the job, if you don't hire her for service i will hire her for my place anytime.lol) thank you to Captitana Sahomi who's smilling you can never get tired of and greats you like a king, to Anaysabel smith my hermana and Yocasta Acosta.. but really each and every person at this hotel was simply amazing and for me it's the reason i travel i hope to see you all very very soon. we miss you Roberto Y Lisette

Last week, I went with my two daughters and my wife to the Grand Paradise Samana to enjoy a week of vacation. This was our first time in the Dominican Republic and it was an amazing experience. We were able to relax and enjoy the beautiful view of the beach. Also, there were many activities in the hotel like archery, volleyball on the beach, kayak, and learning to dance salsa and bachata (Dominican traditional dances). The staff was really nice and friendly, the restaurants and the buffets were delicious and the animation team was always nice and entertaining. We met fascinating people on the entertaining team like Daily and Juan that invited us to many activities and made our stay very charming. What we most enjoyed were the spectacles during the night, because the dancers were really good and creative, besides we learned a lot about the Dominican culture. After the spectacle, the dance club was always open, they had good music and we danced a lot. We had a great time. The last day, we were sad to leave but happy, now that we have beautiful memories of this trip.

Great holiday

We stay with my husband and my daughter (5year). Its very clear, nice and quiet hotel. We are only czech tourist and almost are from the Germany. The personal are very kind, they are still working. The food are delicious, amazing. Breakfast have every day smoothie from the fresh fruits. There is very big choice from food. The pool is very clear. But what is one problem, price per wifi. 38 dollars per person per weel for a bad internet, on the room we have bad signal and 1st day of reklamation they spoke we sent you a technic man, 2nd day they spoke we reset router and 3rd day they spoke on the room is no internet, you must sit only on reception, sorry, its no corect. We ask when we bougt a internet of quality wifi on a room because we have a daughter. In the city you can buy internet 9 dollars per 5 days, no limit. And another thinks. We choose the hotel with playground for our daugter, but tobogan arent here, they cancel because it was damage. But foto of this playgraund is on the web site still. We have excursion with company Joel and Ludi, big thanks Miquel, the guide man. It was amazing.

For what we paid it is a solid 4 star

We are currently here right now. I am here with my mom and 2 teenage boys. We booked this trip as cheaper get away before school starts. We have no complaints. The food is good, the people are nice , the rooms are clean. The beach is beautiful. It is a quiet resort not a party resort. We upgraded with air transat to premium and it was well worth it. Wifi is strong in the room and at the pool. So if you are looking for a relaxing time this is a very good place.
