... are really bad quality and not worth what you are paying in terms of what you are getting. I didn't listen, I decided to buy things from there. It was pretty cheap, I didn't spend more than 20 things for 5 items. Some items seems more expensive then I though but it was worth it. It was close and it was alright.

... Toronto to Punta Cana. So the pilots had to wait for a plane to arrive in Toronto. So they could fly the plane to come pick us up in Punta Cana.

OMG! So much work for one flight. So our flight was actually a whole day, if you calculate all the time that we spent at the airport and waiting for the plane. So it was about 7 AM when we arrived in Toronto on Sunday.

Sigh! The longest ride every. It felt longer than when I flew to Hong Kong. LOL!

... lion show that I keep calling, seals. LOL! oppzz.

But the rest of the day, I was just chilling with my friends by the beach and doing some of the free activities.

By night fall we had another "special dinner," it was the Mediterranean dinner. It was alright. It had seafood and pasta. Nothing really special.

Today is the outback trip. So our hotel is the last to be picked up for almost all the trips, so we could sleep in and not have to worry about missing our trip. Therefore, we are the last ones to be dropped off at the end of the day.

This outback trip is a whole day trip, I know whole day. It must be boring however, we did a lot of driving and a lot of looking. The trip includes alcohol of course, without alcohol how could we function. LOL! In addition, it also includes an ...

... what the websites say, they do scare you. It really isn't that bad. So my boyfriend and I signed up for two events.

Dolphin Explorer and the Outback Trip. I am a fan of learning about other people's culture and learning about their way of life. I found this Outback Trip is really interesting, it did give us a hands on experience of the Dominican's way of life, the tour guide also talks about the island, how ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Club at Grand Paradise Bavaro Punta Cana

    Had a Great Time at The club at Grand Paradise

    from

    We stayed at The Club at Grand Paradise, Bavaro and had a great time. There is quite a lot of building work as you initially enter the resort (on the 'Club' side) but once you go through the main reception into the Grand Paradise itself, it is beautiful. Two large free-form pools with plenty of sun loungers and direct access to an amazing beach and beautiful turquoise waters.

    ¡No se os ocrra ir!

    from

    Este hotel no es un hotel de 5 estrellas, el complejo no es feo, pero todo esta bastante abandonado y viejo.

    Las habitaciones son viejas y sobre todo sucias, bueno en general todo es muy sucio.

    Las instalaciones son pesimas, cuando no estaba estropeada una cosa era otra, las duchas de la piscina no funcionaban los jacutzis tampoco etc......

    el servicio también deja mucho que desear......

    Sinceramente os digo que no vayais, no vale la pena pegarse esas horas de vuelo para meterte en este hotel que mi valoración es un dos estrellas.

    Club lookéa hotel balaro grand paradise

    from

    Attention! Le club lookéa n'est pas situé au bord de la mer mais à l'autre bout du complexe grand paradise bavaro. Il faut prendre un petit train agréable pour aller à la plage.

    Peacefull and worth it!!

    from

    I will break it down for you so you can get an overall idea of the resort.

    Amazing beach! Great resort. Average food? Lock your VALUABLES!!!

    from

    Overall this was a very clean, well groomed and relatively well-maintained resort. The Club side is newer with slighter bigger and nicer rooms. There is a short trolley ride from the Club side to the main resort (2-3min) which runs quite often (every 5-10min). I did not mind the trolley ride too much beacause it meant I can return to the Club at night in peace and quite compared to the main resort. It is easier to find umbrellas and chairs on the Club side. The front desk staff were efficient and courteous.

    Definitely Recommended.

    from

    We recently stayed at the Club at the Grand Paradise Bavaro and I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone of any age. Our ages ranged from 51 to 4. There were four of us and we all had a great time. Yes there are some bugs but anyone with any sense would expect there to be. The rooms were kept and neat. We did have to request additional towels on a few occasions. The shuttle that takes you from the Club to the main resort typically runs every 15 to 20 minutes. There were times that we did have to wait longer for it to arrive. The staff was pleasant overall and helpful except the women in the gift shop. Very rude. Also, it is strongly suggested that you bring your own medications, ample supply of sunscreen, lotion, shampoo, etc. These items are EXTREMELY expensive in the gift shops. A bottle of sun screen is $30.00 USD. Definitely book your dinner reservations and excursions upon arrival or the next morning as certain restaurants fill up quickly. The grounds are clean and the wait/bar staff are very friendly. Our 4 year old was a big hit with everyone that worked there and they were all very patient and courteous. The food was not great but there was quite a variety at the buffets.

    Trolly to the Beach

    from

    My family and I just got back from a 7 day vacation in Punta Cana and it was very relaxing and the kids had a blast (then again, the kids will have a blast wherever there is a beach and a Kid's club). Now, where do I begin. First of all, this is no way a 4 Star hotel. Please remember, I stayed at "The Club" which means the rooms are not on the beach, you must take a trolly to head on out to the beach. I new about this from when I booked as well as reading other reviews, so I was expecting the trolly ride, but I had no Idea what a pain it was until you are there. You get up in the morning to trolly over to the Grand Paradise to walk all the way onto the beach to reserve a palm made hut with long chairs all before 8h30am otherwise good luck trying to find some shade...the palm tree huts and long chairs will all be taken. Once you are on the beach it is pure paradise. The beach is extremely clean and the water is fantastic (5+ Stars for the Beach)!!!

    Ok if you speak french

    from

    We stayed here last year and I agree the rooms are alot nicer but all the entertainment at the club is in french!!!! which was a bit annoying if you are there for 2 weeks.(me and my boyfriend 25 and 28-avererage age at the club over 40)

    The Club = gorgeous room

    from

    We were 2 couples that stayed at The Club (Grand Paradise Bavaro). In total, we were 18. The others stayed at Grand Paradise. Our rooms at The Club were simply gorgeous. We had a whirlpool, a glass door shower, all in marble. We also had a sofa. Our room was very big. Having said that, not all the rooms were like that. Guess we were lucky, cause didn't pay extra. The Club is very nice, only pool with an aqua bar. Also had our own lobby bar... But since we were with others, we didn't stay there that much. To go on the other side, there's a shuttle, or it's a 5 min walk...very nice with all the landscaping. To go on the beach, you have to go on the Grand Paradise side. There is also an à la carte resaurant called Manglar. It's the International one...For us, it was the best, filet mignon, fish, shrimps, and the service was crazy. They were always there to give us more wine and cerveza. In general, The Club was more calm than the Grand Paradise. There were more people from France with their own entertainment team Lookéa. That is all I can say for The Club, I'm gonna write a review for The Grand Paradise cause we were there more... And have to say, it was GREAT!!! I would recommend this hotel without a doubt. The only thing is, make sure you don't forget something in your room, if you wanna go to the beach, it will take you 15 min, to go and another to come back. But hey, you're on vacations...Enjoy the place...
