Great location, great service from the front desk (thanks Dawn!), great beach, great food, great service from housekeeping (bend over backwards nice to make sure we had extra towels, etc). After reading the reviews from previous travelers, we decided on this hotel for a long weekend get-away. The hotel is very clean, has a nice beach (we saw dolphins within... More

the place was nice and clean, the people were friendly. so close to the beach. the food at the buffet was awesome. worth my money. the elevators get crowded though so you have to be very patient coz it takes forever. we had a nice partial view.

We visited this hotel last summer and were pleased with our 2 balcony, 2 bed suite. This trip was a very different story. After paying almost $200 a night for a direct beachfront room we ended up having a view perpendicular to the beach. Yes, we could see, no it was NOT direct beachfront. We were also lucky enough to...

From the revolving bar to the beach, we did it all. It was hard to call an end to our day. The room as clean and comfortable for 3 adults, that's not bad. The staff were super friendly. We loved the area too. So much better than the east coast!

First of all, a lot of the hotels in the area that are beachfront appear dated, so my expectations were in check. But I was pleased to observe that the rooms were well cleaned and service was excellent. There is a nice pool, an excellent beach bar attached with decent food and good prices, and the beach is 10 feet... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights as a break after spending a week doing the Disney parks in Orlando and have to say that the hotel was ideal for a relaxing few days. We booked an ocean front room which was on the 8th floor. It had a double bed and a pull down double, a small but... More

The Grand Plaza Beachfront Resort Hotel & Conference Center was the BEST place for us to end our vacation!! We traveled to Florida with our 3 sons and we loved it! The hotel is very family friendly. We enjoyed days on the beach ( and could rent a cabana for a very small fee), the rooms are beautiful, the view... More

After spending the first night on the south side of the hotel we asked if it would be ok to change to the opposite side so we could have a sunset view. The staff had to change things around to make this possible and we cannot thank them enough. We had a great room with a great view of the... More

I booked a family beach vacation (teenage daughters, 13 & 16) for the 21st through the 24th of July. It was down to 3 hotels - this one, the Sirata and Tradewinds). I was back & forth between them but what settled the deal was how FRIENDLY the reservation staff treated me. Michelle was her name and she found exactly... More

Great food, beautiful rooms and view, plenty of activities on and around the hotel. Housekeeping for rooms could use improvement. My wife and I spent a week at the Grand Plaza. On a few occasions our room didn't get cleaned too well. Tissue wasn't replaced when it was empty. Instead they stuff a few extra in the box for us.... More
