4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I got an excellent package deal online, so the price was very good. This was not a budget hotel, and it was clean, safe, and very well kept. I was busy off-site and did not use their onsite amenities/ activities, but the pools, mini golf, waterfront area, grills, and playground all looked very nice. As a woman traveling solo, I... More

After all the hotels and resorts my wife and I have stayed at this is by far the best. The grounds are very clean. The rooms are apartment like, not just one room with a bed.the bathrooms are awesome with a whirl pool for a bath tub. There's 2 TV's. One in the living/kitchen and one in the bedroom. WiFi... More

I have stayed at Grand Beach for last several years and each time has been a great experience. Staff is awesome especially Tiffany. They go out of their way to accommodate members. Diamond does an exceptional job of ensuring that units are clean and in good working order. We had lovely 3 bedroom condo which was perfect. The beach and... More

At our last stay, Narineh, one of our friendly hosts at the front desk, heard me say that our anniversary was coming up. On her own, she put together an very nice basket and delivered it to our room. She is the perfect example of what we have come to expect at Grand Beach. The facilities are the best we... More

My family of five stayed at the Grand Beach over the Christmas holidays in a lovely 3 bedroom, 3 bath unit. We were very pleased with the amount of space afforded to us by this unit. We had a top floor room with a view of the Lake. I would recommend requesting this, as I did when I arrived to... More

We had a 1 bedroom in Bldg. 8, and I was very impressed. The seating area and bedroom are separated by windows and a door, with blinds. The bathroom had a garden tub, and was pretty spacious compared to some hotels I've stayed in. Despite the smell of some of the neighbor's cooking, the visit was very pleasant. The biggest... More

This was the first time we stayed at this resort. Went with family for Christmas vacation and stayed 1 week. Overall the resort was fine however, it did not really feel like a resort. There was no restaurant on property and there was only a small convenience store next to the front desk. My family and I are used to... More

Our family stayed at this resort beginning the Friday after Thanksgiving. Our requests for room location was met (top floor, lake view). Grounds were well kept. Our 3 BR 3 Bath unit was very spacious. Weather was great. We had a couple of minor problems but they were handled promptly by housekeeping. The front office manager, Jennifer S. was very... More

Much more than I expected. Huge jetted tub in master SUITE. Screened deck. Lovely grounds with heated pool, mini golf, 2 playgrounds. 3 miles from Epcot. 5 miles from Magic Kingdom. Easy travel to and from all Disney sites. And NO sales pitch!!! Unless you wanted one. I highly recommend this accommodation!!!

The rooms were fabulous, the location is close Disney and the pool is adequate. The only main issue was the toxic chemical smell that would not go away. We were too exhausted to change rooms on arrival, so we turned on the exhaust fans and opened the main door to air out the room. When we awoke, all of the... More
