Nice place in general, old-fashioned section, even if called deluxe. You have to take prefered club package because otherwise, no access to some pool and more beautiful section of beach.

Positive :

The food is good, the staff smiling, but less than all the Dreams visited until today. The quality of drinks incredible. Pool table and teen section well done. Resort made on the sea.

Negative :

We were sold Deluxe room with garden, but got a very dated room and no access to some sections. Already there are 2 restaurants that do not accept children including a lunchtime. No access to the pool closest to our room. Shady area difficult to find. 1st time it happens to us.

Caution in hotel Grand Paradise Playa Dorada .......... members of the hotel my wife is tempted to violate !!!

Positive :

sorry vacation my wife was tempered by an attempted rape !!

Negative :

My wife was drugged on the last night of his vacation by the date rape drug. She woke in the night with a naked man on her, she managed to grab his walkie-talkie that was on his belt and that's when he landed the bed and left. My wife almost got raped in room 1302 of this hotel !!! Which by the way .... by chance ... the door does not close well in this room. The police nor anyone else has done nothing to help ... it is to believe that they are all complicit !!

The beauty of the place is breathtaking, literally. A temperature ranging from 25 to 32 degrees every day. Several kilometers of beach, the sea is warm and the water is beautiful.

Positive :

The site is very nice and clean. Great rooms with a minibar in the same room. What is interesting with the Riu chain is that you can walk on the site of the other Riu too, so Riu Merengue and Riu Mambu. Free access to the gym with heated air and more! The coffee is excellent to start the day! Side food: Buffet restaurant - Bahía de Maimon Lunch: Excellent, unlike Cuba, real maple syrup available. Many varieties, the cook will make you an omelet to your liking or eggs with a smile, without hope of TIP. Dinner and supper: It's good, but a bit repetitive. At least, the dishes are tasty. By cons, they really cook too much meat in general so it's a little dry, it can be negative for some, positive for others. With sauce, I was shooting with it in the end.

Negative :

la carte restaurants: To book, it is essential you are at the entrance of the main buffet (the Bahía de Maimon) Between 7:00 to 10:30. For cons, I suggest you get there very early. All week, even at 7:50 am, I was told that it was already full .... Two restaurants are available - Italiano Restaurant & Grill-Steakhouse - Normally in a 5 star, we have the right automatically a dinner in each, but seems it that Republic had to fight for a place ... Even though I'm only 23, I have been fortunate to travel a lot. I have enough sense to know what to expect depending on the package and the price that I pay. When I go to a three-star in Cuba, generally I know that the food will not be the '' top '' of my expectations. By cons, when I pay for a five star hotel in the Republic I expect all the same to a minimum. We arrived at my boyfriend and I, an unfortunate event. In fact, my friend found a cockroach in her pizza, below the cheese. I do not think the hotel is unsafe. Sometimes it is the neglect of one employee and the damage is done! But the way the staff handled the situation was a bit disappointed. Noting the presence of an insect in his pizza, my boyfriend is the result went to show the chef who did not say much ... I told him to go and inform the front desk staff. The girl took the complaint and asked for our room number. The next day, still nothing! So, since I believe it is unacceptable to allow a client to find a cockroach in his food in a five star, we went back to ask what happened in the situation. A '' manager '' came to talk to us and we explained the situation again and very calmly. She said she would speak to the chef in question the next day. At dinner time, still no news. Just before dinner, my boyfriend sees the counter and will therefore ask him a follow. She replied: ''? The Chiefs did not seem to know what I was talking, Have you taken a picture '' The boucane beginning to come out of my ears, I think we have better to do than to invent a such history and certainly not as much time to waste VACATION. She finished by:? So what you expect of us' '' Well I do not know if such a situation came to my restaurant, I think that compensation is appropriate and adequate response to correct the situation. In short, a great lack of judgment on the part of this person.

Very disappointing, disappointment upon arrival at the room block 4, smell and presence of mold in several more mosquitoes, Block 1 second bedroom, air conditioning and fridge not working we are told that this will replace the current time, but in vain nothing works after 2 hours, we're still trying again to request a room change, third bedroom okay Block 3 without very outdated patio door does not close. No apology from the staff, very difficult to have the service is very long ... great difficulty being understood. So first day partly lost in managing our room rental. Good service maid, okay show, pretty good buffet food varied, à la carte meals good, especially the Gourmet and Brazilian. Beautiful beach by against the presence of algae and presence vendor who achalent us every day. 07.07.2015 07.14.2015 trip to Dominican significant presences because it is their holiday so much noise and lack of cordiality. I do not recommend this hotel. The site is beautiful but the service and staff to work their expertise and know-being with their guests.

Positive :

The maids very good service, decent food

Negative :

Very poor service, staff is not smiling, pool bar lack of manners. And do not forget Dominican presence on weekends and during the summer vacation, lots of noise and lack of manners. Outdated rooms smell and molds present. I will not return to this Hotel
