Very pleasant stay. Resort is on a big block of land and next to the beach. Always felt spacious and relaxed. Facilities are really great especially for kids such as daily kids activities, daily resort organised activities. You have to get used to 'island time' so relax if things aren't happening exactly at the time specified. That's just the relaxed way of life it is there. The resort restaurants, its many bars, seating is plentiful and never lacking seating. Overall a great experience. Highly recommended.
I have been to Grand Hotel twice now Once in October 2015 and again in July 2016. I have decided to come back nine months later as I knew Grand wouldn't disappoint me. The location is very hand to shops and restaurants. The staff are warm and welcoming and you know you can rely on them for information you need. I have become good friends with some staff especially Cyclone who is in charge of booking tours. The service in the in-house restaurant is excellent especially when you request room service. The rooms are clean and well equipped. The toilet and bathroom is excellent with electronic blinds for the glass window. The balcony is a nice place to chill out when you wake up early in the morning to see the sunrise or even the sunset in the evening.
