The place had a living room with flat screen TV, a full kitchen, and the bed room was large and comfortable also with flat screen TV.... More

What a gem! Not a cookie cutter HUGE hotel, but rather a small immaculate charmer. Great employees and service. Few blocks from beach, but was so relaxing I never made it to the beach. Also has a small heated pool. Only drawback- have to walk or drive to restaurants- none on this property.

Great hotel with a great location. The staff and guest seem like one big family. My only regret was only booking two nights. I can't wait until my next visit. The intimate size of the hotel adds to it charm. You really feel like you get to know all of the staff and guests. We love being so close to... More

The New Grand Palm Plaza looks great after the remodeling, but still the same quiet, cozy place. The new staff Keith, Chung and Juan were just perfect. They served you in the afternoon frozen grapes and cold lavender towels on the pool and on Saturday an exotic drink. Manager is Edward, who was already two years ago on the old... More
