We stayed at this resort several years ago with our young boys and my parents. We had a 3 bedroom which was perfect since it has two master bedrooms. It was very convenient and cost effective to have a almost full size kitchen while on vacation. We made our own breakfast daily before heading out to the parks and then... More

My wife and I stayed here in May this year and it was a very nice place to stay. We had an apartment rented and it looked just like your home or even better with a regular kitchen and all the plates, silverware and cooking pans you need. Very close to Disney(just a few minutes away). They have a pool,... More

We are DRI owners and have learned to just ignore the marketing hype these resorts constantly push. That said, this resort has something for everyone. If you can handle the summer heat & humidity you can swim in either of two nice pools, boat, play volleyball, basketball, tennis, BBQ, work out and do much more. The room was huge, clean,... More

We go to Orlando every June with our two grandchildren and have stayed at several different resorts. This place is one I wouldn't go back to. The only real nice thing about Grand Beach is the miniature golf course. The grounds are not beautiful and the pools are small with no shade. We were given a 5th floor room as... More

Was disappointed as expecting better from DRI. Our suite desperately needed a kitchen redo. Balcony overlooked parking lot and the living room furniture was incredible uncomfortable. As they are trying to sell these units they might want to put perspective buyers in better suites. However the grounds and pools as well as the staff were very nice.

We recently got back from our stay in Orlando at the Grand Beach resort. We were very happy with our experience with them! Their location was perfect if you plan to hop to all the major parks. They are right off the main road with plenty of shops, restaurants, activities! They also have special pricing for the theme parks in... More

Taking off one star for those sales calls that wake you up early in the morning. The last straw was the final sales call that told us to go to the front desk for our "gift" while checking out. When I asked what the gift was, it turned out to be another sales gimmick so I asked the woman if... More

Classic Diamond quality on the accomodation, but that´s it. As opposed to Diaomond in Spain, there is absolutely nothing going on on the premises in the afternoon. No Bar, no pub, cafè or restaurant. Also there´s nothing within walking distance. So unless you want to cook all your meals yourself, you have to have a car, or take taxis. The... More
