On the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Location, Location, Location, if you want on the beach this is for you, only thing closer are the sun chairs. Great beach with excellent sand, plenty of room, chairs, and very safe. You could not wish for a nicer location, with at least a mile of sand beach in both directions.

The accommodations and resort are as described in the homeaway posting, and the resort web page grandparadiseplayadorada

The unit owner, Jerald, was easy to communicate with and responded quickly to questions we asked prior to booking, and emailed after our arrival to see if we had questions. Having access to his internet was outstanding, and he provided an on-site contact who assisted in coordinating everything, including a rental car (cheaper than advertised rates on rental sites).

There is little to no activity on the beach after dark, this makes for easy sleeping, no excessive noise. we went for the beach and to tour, so we did not spend a lot of time on resort activities, but everyone we met was always smiling and welcoming.

Great value, you are not likely to find a better value than this for an on beach location.

Thank you.

Martin & Elizabeth

Nearest Airport
8 Kilometres

My apt is part of the Grand Paradise Resort and is directly on the beach in the best located building on Paradise beach.


There is a 32" TV with cable, anequipped small kitchen with

a microwave, a 2 burner electric hotplate, a blender, pots and pans, spices, cooking oil, all you need for your stay.

There is a full tub and shower, vanity, towels and hair-dryer.

The Grand Paradise complex is gated and has 24/7 security with free parking included. The front desk is open 24/7 also.

There is a big fresh-water swimming pool and a nice swimming

area directly in front of my apt. Its shallow and protected by a

double-reef so its usually calm like a big swimming pool.

Its perfect for beginning swimmers. i and most of my guests

prefer to swim there as its usually calm and easy to swim in the sea. You can hear the surf at night from the apt.

The beach fotos are recent shots from my terrace.

The maid service of 2x/week during your stay is included.

If you want maid service more often, you can call Paula

to arrange it and pay the hotel $5 for each extra cleaning.

You can ask the maid for water and clean towels as needed.

Please be aware that if you accept the big blue towels at

the front desk on check-in and they get lost, the hotel will

charge you $10 for each one not returned.

We prepare our meals in the apt and dine on the

beachfront terrace. You always have the option to select

the meals and drinks option, of $47/pp/day,or not.

If you want the meal plan, the hotel  requires that you

pay them for meals for each day you desire.

We dont eat the food here. The nearby Playa Dorado Plaza

has 3 restaurants and many small stores in the Plaza.

Jumbo is the big super market nearby and has a buffet.

My guests have full use of all the resort activities and facilities.  24/7 check-in to get the room key to my apt 1414.

Paula will loan you my WiFi modem for internet access (which i pay) and she has the only key/lock to my safe box.


POP is the nearest airport, only 8 km.

The Playa Dorada hotels can not offer airport pick-up because

of the taxi union. Plenty taxis there, but always ask the fare first.

Lots of watersports, including free kayak and snorkeling.

Also a lot of kiteboarding now on the beach and there is usually an instructor available for lessons and rentals.

The hotel has an activities desk where you can book the tours

that you want.

We have owned our beachfront apt #1414 for 8 years.

Since this is our only apt in this resort, during high winter season, we can not confirm reservations without a deposit..

We accept PayPal and they can also accept credit cards.
