We stayed at the GBP San Juan April 13th to 20th. What we got was a budget friendly vacation that we thoroughly enjoyed. Like many reviewers we were were somewhat skeptical on what we were in for when we booked this vacation. Many of the observations listed by reviewers have validity. Yes, the drive from the airport to the resort...

We stayed at this resort for a week, between April 7th and April 14th. We stayed in block "E". Before coming here I made sure to read the reviews and was prepared for the following: 1. Wifi is not free, you have to pay for it. We paid $80 USD for 4 people (family pack), which was reasonable. 2. The...

Overall I’d give 3.5 stars, with the top up to 4 stars thanks to the very nice staff. Travel (Air Transat) – Besides the lack of leg room which is common amongst airlines, the flights (Fredericton to Puerto Plata) went off without a hitch. This is likely the first time that I’ve had flight departure times (especially when compared to...

Went as a family group of 6. 3 Rooms in total. We flew into Samana airport instead of Puerto Plata. We saved $80 per person on airfare doing so. The difference in taxi fare was an extra $20 US and 20 minutes longer from Samana then from Puerto Plata. Well worth the savings for a large group. The resort was...
