Our stay at Grand Beach was an exchange through RCI. The three bedroom unit we stayed in was one of the most spacious layouts compared to other resort condos where we have stayed. Two of the bedrooms had their own bathroom and Jacuzzi tubs while the third bedroom had a full bathroom right across the hall. This is a great... More

Grand Beach facilities are great! Room size excellent, proximity to Disney and malls excellent, having access to washer/dryer inhouse priceless! Sales staff promised breakfast for listening to a 30 session during breakfast to go over updates. Showed up for breakfast and was told we had to stay for 1 1/2 hours. Not a happy morning. No signage for the condo,... More

We are staying in a 3 bedroom unit, which for three of us is large. It really is more of an apartment than a suite, with a complete kitchen (full sized stove, dishwasher, small appliances, double sink), a washer/dryer, 2 king beds, a room with 2 singles, and three full bathrooms. One en suite bathroom has an oversized tub, the... More

I really enjoyed staying here. I had a 3 bedroom suite and it had everything and more than I needed. The room was very clean and the location was very close to Disney, however it would have been nice if the hotel had a pool bar or something on site to have a cocktail and the Marketplace store was really...

The Grand Beach Resort was amazing! There were plenty of activities and pool options. The grounds and rooms were impeccable and could not have offered more value. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. They could not have been more accommodating. Loved our two weeks there and hope to return often.

We got a free 3 Bedroom from a friend for the week on Thanksgiving 2014. (Yes Free and I would say we paid for what is was worth) At check in they hit you with a $175.00 resort fee. Supposedly for Internet, activities etc. Well the resort is 90% Buildings and Parking! What activities? We have been here for 7... More

The ultimate family vacation destination, Grand Beach in Orlando is just minutes from Florida's Walt Disney World®, SeaWorld®, Universal Studios® and endless designer outlet malls. Past guests have enjoyed the amenities of our quiet lakefront getaway where you can take a dip in the outdoor pools, relax in the whirlpool or enjoy fishing, canoeing and other water sports on Little...

When we last stayed in Orlando we stayed at the nearby Polynesian resort (almost a Diamond resort) and decided to give the Grand Beach a try. We were mostly enticed by the variety of activities on the resort grounds. There's a mini golf course that is actually quite challenging and very new. It's free and you can play as much... More

Very nice place, clean, near restaurants, places to visit. Only drawback is no restaurant/bar on property. Pool is great! Miniature golf on site. View of lake very pretty! Don't get hooked on Diamond Resorts package....not worth it!!

Wonderful location, great view and we loved our screen-in veranda. A great place to sit and have breakfast. Helpful staff. We will return for another stay. The rooms were spacious, clean and each room had a bathroom. We love the grounds as well as the beach.
