First impressions were good. We received a warm welcome with drinks and cooling face towels and luggage was taken to the room, which unfortunately was not as requested (too small).

Even though we're fussy eaters, we always found something in the restaurant which we enjoyed as their was loads to choose from. Eating in the buffet restaurant which was overlooking the beach, what an amazing view!! Our holiday...

Have just returned 12 hours ago. First impressions of the hotel were not good. The lush gardens were chopped to twigs, and all round the hotel grounds were pipes covered with metal grates that didn't meet so there exposed holes in the grass every where. Travelling with a 3 year old wasn't good. The rooms however were really good sized...

We purchased the romantic dinner by the sea and my wife loved it. Super lobster dinner and first class service. We were very disappointed with the male check out receptionist (I did have my glasses and could not receive his name tag. He would not tell me his name), He when he made us pay 15 dollars for a plastic...

Me and my Boyfriend travelled to the Grand paradise 19/06/11 - 3/07/11. On arrival we were given a cocktail, the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. The room did have a few problems at first as the air con wasn't working and we had no black out curtains, but the staff moved us as soon as we complained. Food- breakfast...

Went for 2 weeks in May 2011 - was the best holiday ever. First time the Caribbean but read up on it before so after reading the reviews decided we would make it what we wanted it to be. Booked a sea view room - it was sea facing but trees were in the way - the perfect view was...

We had an issue om checkin in regards to getting appropriate rooms. We had asked for 2 double rooms with 2 beds in each. We had also asked for rooms on lower floors as 2 of the people travelling with us were seniors and had trouble with stairs. Only room available with 2 beds was on the 4th floor. They...
