Nice hotel close to beach

Posted Jul 3, 2015
Great hotel right on the beach, we had an upgrade on arrival which gave us a better view we also received a free bottle of champagne, the only negative comments would be the pull down bed, the mattress was terribly uncomfortable and the free wifi was disappointing slow. But that wouldn't stop me coming back :)

Great View, Clean, Close to the beach

Posted Jul 2, 2015
Great View, Clean, Close to the beach. Family environment, nice pool with a nice bar off to the left where you can order food and drinks. You can walk right onto the beach from the pool down and ramp and there you are. Our family had a blast.

Nice hotel right on the beach!

Posted Jul 1, 2015
Pros: The restaurants and bars were amazing. The Bongos staff are fantastic!

Great experience! Would definitely recommend to others and would come back. Recommend an ocean view. The breeze coming off the water and into the room was great.

Grand Plaza Beachfront Resort Hotel stay

Posted Jun 29, 2015
Pros: Overall decor was really good. Parking was easy.Revolving restaurant has great views and good food. Easy access to beach.
Cons: Service was poor in the rotating restaurant. Maybe a deal could be worked out between the hotel and cabana vendor so that cabana rental could be lower
Location: close to downtown St. Petersburg.
Great hotel and a great location. Nice pool area and lots of good beach front. Plenty of outside dining area, some on the beach and some out by the bar area with nightly live entertainment.

Auf einfache Strandhochzeiten spezialisiert

Posted Jun 29, 2015
Pros: Die Lage
Cons: Alles!
Location: St. Pete Beach, Dali-Museum, The Pier in St. Petersburgh, John´s Pass
In die Jahre gekommenes Strandhotel, welches sich wohl auf primitive Strandhochzeiten spezialisiert hat und dementsprechend andere Gäste nur als unwillkommene Lückenfüller anzusehen scheint. Unfreundlich beim Check-in, Zimmer -obwohl für vier Gäste ausgelegt- nur sehr klein und mit unzureichendem Stauraum. Morgens regnete es durch die Balkontür hinein, mehrere Handtücher mussten zum Aufwischen genutzt werden und wir waren ca. eine halbe Stunde beschäftigt, um den Schaden in Grenzen zu halten. Beim anschließenden Auschecken erfolgte nur ein lapidares "Sorry", keinerlei Entschädigungsangebot.

Not clean!!

Posted Jun 28, 2015
The bedsheets had what appeared to be a large urine and makeup stain on them. When I looked further under the bottom sheet it was absolutely disgusting. It was covered in stains. Whether it was vomit, urine or worse it was unbelievable what they let their guests sleep in!! Looked like they had made the bed with the same sheets used by the previous guests in that room and have probably never changed the under bedding! The hotel was very dated and rundown. Chain on the door was barely hanging on. The air vent in bathroom was in the same condition. The refrigerator had to be wiped down before I could even put my water in it and then it almost fell out in the floor bc it was uneven and ragged. The staff were apologetic and tried to put us in a different room but who wants to stay in a hotel that is obviously not taken care of. We checked!!

Location Location!

Posted Jun 27, 2015
Great experience staying at the Grand Plaza Beachfront Hotel! Literally on the beach, so you can't ask for more location-wise. A few restaurants on-site which are convenient and actually really good food. Bongo's bar is on the beach and great for grabbing a piña colada then laying out at the ocean. Room was clean and spacious. Hotel staff was very pleasant. Hotel was sold out and there were several weddings going on, but you never felt "crowded". I will definitely be back to this hotel!

Perfect location that is right on the beach!

Posted Jun 23, 2015
Location is perfect! Everything that you would need is either right on the resort property or within walking distance. Staff is wonderful and extremely helpful. The restaurants on the property are reasonably priced and delicious!
