First this is not a typical Florida Beach Hotel. It is definitely LGBT. The service was excellent, the staff friendly, the rooms clean, and the pool really heated. They were kind enough to get our laundry done and helpful as per advice. The room were nicely decorated, and you had access to the facilities of the other establishments of the... More

Once again, my husband and I experienced a wonderful week at Grand Palm Plaza. The entire staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Special kudos to head housekeeper Juan for his promptness, thoroughness and personality; Nicholas and Luis also did a GREAT job. We have already booked our three week vacations for next Winter, escaping the harsh realities of Pennsylvania. We... More

We have returned to the Grand Palm Plaza for an extended stay. After being here a month, I have to say it is better than ever. Edward and Keith are exceptional. They do everything possible to make us feel like this is our home away from home. It is a beautiful property and very well maintained. The rooms and suites... More

Had a great 4 night stay at the Grand Palm hotel this past week. The setting was quiet, and serene, and the room very nice. Met some nice guys at the pool, and the garden area was clean, and well kept. The heated pool was perfect for the windy night dips we took. We will be back, Thanks again D&D

We were lucky enough to get down twice this winter to our "home away from home", The Grand Palm Plaza. We always enjoy our stay, and the guys always make us feel like family and friends, which we consider them in return. Thanks as always to Edward, Keith, Chun, and even that sassy "Ms." Juan! It's nice to still have... More

This was my first trip to the Sunshine State. I didn't know what to expect. I was more than pleasantly surprised when I walked through the gate of the Grand Palm. A calm oasis with a heated pool, palm trees and privacy. The staff were immediately helpful with our bags, our room and advice on local sights. Plenty of parking,... More

We were pleasantly surprised about the cleanliness and size of the room. For the value, you really can't find a better place. The best part was the staff, who made sure we had a comfortable stay. We were definitely the youngest people staying at the hotel, but we really didn't care. It's private and quiet, close to the beach, and... More

I stayed here my first night in town before my partner joined me the next day and we stayed down the street. The staff that greeted me were quite friendly and helpful. There was plenty of free parking, which is a luxury for FL hotels. It was quiet that night, but the guests all seemed to be enjoying themselves. Grounds... More
