Trip Advisor

“From pre wedding prep to arrival to welcome dinner to rehearsal to wedding to post wedding excursion to departure Grand Caribe was amazing. We arrived assuming to be overwhelmed with finalizing pre wedding details, but were surprised with a full blown vacation that had a wedding falling in between. I cannot find one negative comment. Great job to this entire staff and resort. Thank you for making our stay and day special and all the little special surprises a long the way. If I had to do it again, I would do it 10 times over at Grand Caribe!!!”
