Location: gated community in which there is nothing to do unless yo go outside to the main city. Rooms: clean but the maids are picky and often do not take the gifts you offer them and in return lack service such as do not give you towels or throw out the garbage. The pools and the beach are nice however...

We were at Grand Paradise Playa Dorada Puerto Plata for 2 weeks i.e. November 24 to December 2011. We had not been at that resort since 2004 and we were very happy to return because we had heard excellent comments from friends who had been there. Great total rebuild of the resort, sparkling clean, great service at restaurants, at the...

This resort is terrible. Check in is not great....didn't have the right room and had to have a big fight with the front desk to get the right room.

Just came back from the Playa Dordas complex and the Casino at the grand paradise was tipping cards, taxing off the top of chip piles, and a Pit Boss was watched faning out cards putting them in order and then handed them to the dealer after they had just shuffled the rest. THEY PUT THEM IN PLAY!!!
