Perfect beach, scenery, and location. Food was very disappointing, especially the Italian restaurant (ended leaving and going to buffet). Both the rooms for our group had problems; one had an air conditioner that leaked into the bed, technician came very late at night and room was in terrible condition, no light in closet, the safe was broken, wooden attic was...

I had an amazing week at Grand Paradise in Samana! We were a 3 girlfriends and had a wonderful trip. The resort is absolutely gorgeous! The beach is one of the best I have ever been to. We really liked the grassy areas of the beach and the hundreds of palm trees. We were always able to find lounge chairs...

We arrived in Samana just before lunch and were greeted warmly by our Sunwing Rep, Rapmone. He gave us our welcome pkgs from the resort which included our keys. He also gave us the basic information we would need to get our vacation started ie/ towels in rooms, buffet open until 2:00 so that when we got to the resort...

I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful from Yinauri and Emilio at the reception (He helped me figure out the wifi on my BB10) to Benito our favorite bartender at the poolside bar and Juan and the female bartender (I don't remember her name) at the Sports bar on the beach! Our room, 1201, was clean and...

If we had the time and money, we could easily have stayed two months, we never get bored, always something to do both on...

Scenario is spectacular, they assigned me a cabin where nothing seemed to work. Air conditioner was dripping water right on the bed. Little light in the room and any in the closet. Remote control still doesn't work after 3 trips to reception. Air conditioning was repaired at 11 pm. 5 hours after reporting it several times. Food is terrible. Night...

Went to this resort in January/2014 - After our 2nd day we all contacted a virus along with many others on the resort to which we all had for over 2-weeks. Beach was not made out to what it was suppose to be a lot of seaweed etc. Not near enough lounge chairs, most were broken. Food was not appetizing...

Just spent a week here with my wife and 7yr old daughter and had a pretty good time. This is our 4th vacation in the DR and have also been to Venezuela, Jamaica twice, and Mexico twice so I do have some good reference for comparison. The resort is large but well laid out and kept pretty clean. I had...

I would thoroughly recommend the Grand Paradise Samana. The staff are so lovely - Mikiki in particular made us feel so welcome and always had a smile in his face. The location is brilliant - right beside a gorgeous beach. We went in October when there was plenty of space on the sunchairs by the sea and the lovely pools....

This was our second trip to this resort and just like the first, everything was so impressive. Service at the front desk is very helpful in a number of languages. I had the impression many of the guests were French, but we met people from all over the world. I had requested the same room and was so pleased when...
