The Grand Lucayan was the best part of an all inclusive cruise/timeshare package I booked. I had no idea what I was getting into but the timeshare people made this a hard deal to pass up- an overnight cruise on the Grand Celebration to the Grand Lucayan, stay 2 nights and cruise back to Ft. Lauderdale. I opted to turn... More

1st time here, but will definitely return. We are here celebrating my wife's birthday, as part of an all inclusive cruise package. Have found most of the staff friendly & helpful - only 1 seemed indifferent (a bartender ). Room is large, nice.. but the view is not the greatest - we are overlooking the roof of the maintenance area,... More

Great reception staff, hotel rooms were basic but with very nice aspect looking out over the ocean. Good system for towels and meals/drinks so that you don't have to carry cards/cash around. Serpentine pool with a swim up bar was simply amazing. Lots of families present and the beach staff were always helpful. Lifeguard on duty and couldn't ask for... More

Don't have much to say, but the island is a beautiful place as well as the hotel. The beach was wonderful and the food was awesome. Grand Lucayan hotel has got it all i must say, but the customer service was really poor. Not much employees cared about helping you if you asked them and the some of people are... More

My husband and I stayed at the Grand Lucayan resort as part of a cruise and stay package, for 2 nights. We arrived there Friday morning and left Sunday early afternoon. The location of the hotel is absolutely beautiful. Right on the white sand, clear turquoise water beach. The pool area is right in front of the hotel, and the... More

I helped build this place back in 1998-99 and she was quite the beauty back in her day. Unfortunately like all beauties, they require maintenance, a word that's apparently quite foreign to the Bahamas. Sherman-Williams is the only product used for maintaining over there. AC units, tile repair, pool refinishing, plumbing upgrades, elevator maintenance, all things this aging gal needs.... More

We have been to the Bahamas by private boat since 1978, so we have a lot of Bahama experience. We have only stayed at the Grand Lucayan Hotel twice and this time was in connection with the Grand Paradise Cruise Ship out of West Palm Beach, Florida. We had a great time but would say that overall the hotel seemed... More

This is not my typical vacation choice, but for what it was, it was great! GOOD: The beach is right there, and has great sand and pretty blue water. It's clean, both inside and out and efficient. Enjoyed sitting in the pool at the pool bar. Great get away for families, or those that want beach, food, drink and shopping... More

Great place to visit, rest and get some sun. The weather is beautiful and the seas are a bright and brilliant blue. Sitting on the beach listening to the waves rolling up on the beautiful brown sand. The local straw market is full of beautiful hand made items, and vibrant island sounds just like most Bahama Islands. The locals were... More
