For those of you who haven't experienced 'all inclusives' in third world countries before, do not have high expectations for this resort. Find a 5 star in Punta Cana, if you want the Dominican. You are going to an old, poor, dirty town. The resort is a 3 star, at best. The air, climate, water, food, drinks, smells, tastes, are...

We were at this resort just before Easter. The rooms were great, comfy beds and clean. The food was okay, we had no problem finding something we liked to eat. At the snack bar at the beach they serve chicken wings, fries and pizza daily among other things, for the really picky this would satisfy them. People have to remember...

My husband and I vacationed at Grand Paradise Playa Dorada in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic April 7th - April 14th 2012. We were extremely disappointed with the entire experience. I had secretly planned this trip for our 15th wedding anniversary and his 40th birthday. We could not have been more disappointed. We had stayed at Playa Dorada, but in a...

The beach was great, the pool needs a little work. The rooms were fine but are a little small. Was quite sick while i was here, a few people in our party were as well. I'm not sure if it was a bug or the food.

We were at this resort for two weeks just before Easter. The resort is well layed out and easy access for most- very easy to meet people. The wait staff were very friendly once they got to know you and tipping didn't hurt. The rooms were clean. One key was an issue at times but we did manage-- had to...

Went there with my wife and two sons (15 and 13). Horrible first impression: rusty roofs, everything looked cheap, badly maintained and built in very bad taste. Especially if you expect to see the quality of a 4 star resort (surprisingly this resort has 4 stars!?). The more we walked in to the resort the more depressed we got. Before...

We got a room with mold in it, then another room with termites, no fridge and no Phone. Finally the third time we got an average room (after 3days). This hotel is not a 4star, I would give it a 2 1/2max (I am a frequent traveler). I should add that the hotel staff was not helpful, when we complained...
