... 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.

... still forced to take the 8 PM bus to the airport. So we spend almost all night at the airport. We slept on benches that were there. Of course Punta Cana was not expecting to have this many people to be at the airport at once. There were people lying on the floor and sprawled out everywhere. The amount of walking space was limited. Causing walking hazards and such. Eventually our plane has arrived after a another set back. There were no planes in Toronto that ...

Fourth day here in Punta Cana. Enjoying the sun.

Today, my boyfriend and I went to the Dolphin Explorer adventure. It is amazing, I got to swim with the dolphins, it was only 4 hours. I wished we got to spend more time with the dolphins. But it was really short. Included in the Dolphin Explorer was the bird show, and ...

... the end of the day, we got to see how the locals make cigars (rolling tobacco), of course you can buy cigars here at like 1/2 the price. Plus they have all different types of smokes, cherry, vanilla, and chocolate. We were also able to see local wood carving. So beautiful.

That was the end of the day. We had dinner at the Japanese restaurant but if you were spoiled like I was growing up in Toronto. The sushi, maki and sushami isn't to the standard that you might be used ...

... 10 seconds. So nothing to really worry about. Pack an umbrella or a raincoat, but honestly, it does not really rain that much only in the morning and really at night. So the rest of the day is sunny skies.

We meet with our tour guide today, I guess that is what you would call him. I am not sure, he doesn't give us a tour or anything, he just tells us things that we could sign up for and what to do and not to do. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Paradise Bavaro Punta Cana

    What a beach!

    from

    Just back from a 2 week vacation at the Grand Paradise & regretted having to leave. The beach was fantastic and varied from day to day (i.e high/low tides, degree of waves). Extremely enjoyable & felt secure even when the waves were higher/stronger. Could walk for miles on the sandy beach without having to watch where I placed my feet (same applied in the water even when away from the hotel beach area). Although the 2 pools looked fine, I never went in (unusual for me!).

    Baby's Paradise ?

    from

    As parents of a one-year-old children, we spent our first holiday in a big big club. Here are the facts.

    Love It!

    from

    Fabulous!!

    It was everything i dreamed it would be. ABSOLUTE PARADISE!

    Everyone will love it and those who complain about little insignificant details are just too picky and over critical, you dont deserve to be at these type of hotels!!

    I give it 5 STARS!! Returning next year with the family!!!

    Warm and friendly

    from

    If you don't travel much to the Dominican Republic, then you may have trouble seeing the four stars....BUT IT IS! It is a destination full of people as warm as their sunshine. I have seen some people get involved with the activities and others who expect to be doted on. The one's waiting to be doted upon should not hold their breath!!! The staff is more than wiling be be of service for those of us who aren't fluent in Spanish...so long as we are patient and try to communicate calmly. The staff smiles back at you when there is a small communication gap! The food is very good in all execpt the Chinese place. I wouldn't make that my first choice. We stuck to the buffet and had a great variety of dishes from all over the world. The Pasta Station is a WINNER!

    With time it should get better!!

    from

    If you have recently booked this place or plan to please be cautious. I would try to talk to someone that has been there as recent as possible.

    Never go back

    from

    The place is very beautiful and maybe we would have enoyed it more if we spoke spanish. We found some of the help to be very rude to English only poeple.

    Grand Paradise Bavaro/Amsha marino

    from

    One can be critical of any resort but to be fair my family had a great week. You cannot have the same expectations as at home. The rooms were fine. The property was very nice and very clean. The food was good and plentiful. We enjoyed the buffet more than the Cana Grill or Michalangelos and never ventured into the Chinese restaurant. The attitude that previous reviews had stated was simply not evident. Apparently the front desk staff was completely new. Daniel Francisco checked us in and he was very helpful. I am however concerned about my final bill. I had only several moments to review our bill before heading to the airport and it confused me and still does. It looked as though I may have got a good deal and apparently I did because they sent a representative to the airport to find us since they did not include my 13 yr old daughter in the final calculation. We were at the airport check-in and trying to understand what the hotel wanted from us. More money. Any ways I am waiting for my Amex to come in. This was an unusual circumstance that should not happen again but does reflect how I feel about the resort. I can recommend the resort. The water was almost as nice as Cancun. Finally the resort needs to organize how to serve people. The beach bar had far too many people butting in ahead to get served. The front desk had the swarming also. They will improve. If you are going there have a great time.

    Tremendous

    from

    This is a fantastic resort. The staff is great and extremely helpful. The food is excellent with 4 different restaurants to choose from. We loved the resort.

    You shoud know what you are paying for...

    from

    it is not what you expect for your holidays, the food is BAD, you dont know what to eat not because of a long menu but because there are very few things that do not taste bad, the food in the restorants itīs also bad not to mentiont it is reheated... leaving the plate hot and the food cold... the atenttion it's very slow and the rarely solve the problems that you may have, if you cant afford a better hotel i guess it's ok but it is worth it to pay a little more for a far better food and service. The do not have enouf towels for the swming area... but it is not THAT bad if you know you are gonig to get a second class attention...
