... She was stucked from the beginning. This all happen at my mums birthday. We woke her up in the morning at 7 am with cake and presents. She wanted us all to go to the gym with her, so we did. I think she had a really good day at the beach. In the afternoon we bought coronas from this lady at the beach. She has been walking past us every.singel.day yelling "coronas" in this really high annoying voice. I think she got happy when we finally bought ...
... back to the hotel. I think its safe to say we were all pretty intoxicated at this point. There were a lot of motor taxis that kept stopping and asking us if we wanted rides, but we declined, mostly because of me, because I am scared of motorcycles. (mostly from a family friend of mine who lost his leg when he was 18 in a motorcycle accident)
As we were walking a police truck pulled up to us and they asked if we wanted a ride. Steven told them no because ...

Made tons of friends, had tons of fun. I did not really want to leave. But I guess I have to. The morning of, I packed my bag and was ready to leave. Brought our bags to the front of the lobby waiting to be picked up by our travel bus.
Spoke to my parents after breakfast, and guess what our flight is delayed because there was a horrible snow storm in Toronto on the day of our departure. So our flight was delayed till 8 PM. That wasn't that bad, so we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Club at Grand Paradise Bavaro Punta Cana
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!
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.
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.
I will break it down for you so you can get an overall idea of the resort.
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.
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.

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)!!!
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)
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...
