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

This is my third stay at this great and friendly guest house. Ed,Keith,Juan and all the staff go out of their way to make your stay welcomed by them. They provide extra special touches such as bathrobes, frozen fruit and lavender scented iced towels while sunbathing poolside.

This was the second time we went to Grand Palm Plaza, and are planning to return again soon. The rooms are comfortable, with a good bed, a small fridge and large TV. The property is well located, steps from the beach, and well maintained. The staff is particularly friendly and helpful and make your stay a great experience.

Ok hotel, with friendly staff. Really quiet and a bit boring. Pool area too dark and no sun. Ok for a relaxing holiday when you don't demand and expect to much. It say's incl breakfast, but don't expect more than a muffin or some cereals. Location is great and by the beach and restaurants.

We are a small intimate 15 room resort. We explained to you upon check in, our sister property The Royal Palms facilities were always open to you.... More

This is the second time we have been to the resort. Edward, Chun, Juan, as well as everyone else who runs the resort, are fantastic. Every need and/or desire is taken care of with a smile. Clean, relaxing, convenient, just a wonderful place to vacation. Can't say enough. Thank you so much. We'll be back!
