The primary resort was nice but I was disappointed with some of the beach area that had a lot of plastic on it. I think more trash containers on the beach could have helped some.

I thought the property had a great beach location. Bars/restaurants and even the buffet had beach/water views. I only stayed on a mon/tues so it wasn't that busy so nightly entertainment was avg. Also the buffet was avg. But...i think the location and beach made up for it. I would go back.

Decent, but not gourmet level food, some healthy options, some foods on the buffet had flies sitting on it, but that's common in that part of world. Distorted music is blasting from speakers day and night from various activities, if you lucky (like I was) you room would be on the middle of two different sources of music, so you would enjoy cacophony of sounds 16 hours a day. Resort had no gym or any exercise facilities, which may not matter for most. Not a terrible place on a tight budget.

The hotel is nice. The room was clean and pretty with and awsome view. The food was ok and it can be better. Most of the staff were nice and polite but some were just not quite proffesional.

Great value. We had a good time. The beach needed cleaning. We went there after a storm and saw lots of empty bottles washed up on the shore.

I stayed here 6/1-6/7/19. I must say, all the staff was very friendly, just make sure you have patience when speaking with them. I always saw someone cleaning the floors and picking up. The food was good, different things every night. Plus, it's right on the beach, literally a few steps away, beautiful views and good places for pictures. One thing was that on the beach there are people who try to sell you things, just remember, it's OK to tell them no. Also, they had entertainment every night, different shows and things for people to participate in, if you wanted to. All in all, worth the price, had a great time.

Always an awesome experience at Grand Paradise. The staff are fantastic from the Bellmen to the Bartenders. I would highly recommend this resort. This was our 6th visit and we can't wait to visit again

the location was great and the beach was beautiful.

The Select, adult section was really nice. All the Premium Alcoholic drinks were real, not watered down or mixed with cheaper kind. Mini bar in room was filled up every day with bottled beer, soda and plenty water. I enjoyed it very much and was very relaxing! Will go back again for sure.

the hotel was ok. Only the towels for the pool must be clean, mean wash. those towels were not washed and clean. I want to bring out the entertainment, they are fantastic, in special Issac.

Did not like the differents packagas , beach and restaurants separations.

The hotel is nice and staff, and the food is good. Hotel need to upgrade the internet facilities. Internet just available in the common areas.

The hotel its kinda of old but the rooms have been nicely remodeled! Its small but cozy

Very close to the beach and so much to do with in and out. Will visit again very soon.

Beautiful setting, nice grounds, cleaning staff very friendly and helpful. It is a large property so it gets very, very crowded, food is ok, wifi service is poor, difficult to access and expensive. Other fees for basics that were not expected.

I would say good and nice beach and clean at all. Food is fresh and staff is very friendly.

Staff are friendly, room was amazing and we really enjoyed our stay.
