We hosted all of our children and grandkids for a week at Grand Caribbean. In doing so, we rented two condo's (4001 & 3008), a three bedroom and four bedroom. This provided more flexibility and privacy than having a large 5-6 bedroom house as we have had in the past. Grand Caribbean's location, mid-way down the island, affords lots of... More

This was my first time to stay at the Grand Caribbean. We had so much fun and these condos are beautiful, clean, well maintained, and just a boardwalk away from the beach. In the unit where I stayed on the second floor, the bedrooms had extremely comfy beds; the kitchen was fully equipped; the laundry room had washer/dryer appliances and... More

We loved the location! We could see the beach and we were right above the pool. The condo was very clean and very nice. We also loved the pool, very clean and big. The only thing we didn't like was the customer service from the lady who runs the front desk "Sherri" she was very rude several times and was... More

1990's tube TV and VCR. Worn out furniture and beds uncomfortable. You hear every footstep in unit above. Large with nice floor plan. Washer and dryer. No hot tub. Two grills on wrong side of building with no shade. Can see ocean but not beach.

I reserved this place for my wedding venue because of the low Conference Room rate, location, and because of the rooms I could get for my guests on the wedding location. However, I have received extremely poor service since I reserved it and the wedding is still 6 months away. I have asked questions about reserving a block of rooms... More

Our condo was very clean. The room had views of both the sunrise and sunset. The balcony was a serenity place, sitting and listening to the waves. The master suite was huge and also had access to the balcony. The kitchen was stocked with everything you would need on vacation. The kids loved the pool and spent hours, even after... More

A friend of mine and I travailed over finding accommodations to meet the needs of some friends from church who were participating in the recent Conquer the Coast bike event. We narrowed condos down to three and since my husband (a pastor) had performed a wedding @ the Grand Caribbean when it was first opened years ago . . .... More

I reviewed this property already but left out one important tip. Stay in a unit on the second floor or higher. If you stay in one on the first floor, you will not be able to see beach from balcony because of dunes. But this property truly has everything you could want........ Full size Washer n Dryer, full kitchen, balcony... More

We've been staying at the Grand Caribbean for several years as part of an annual girls' trip. This year we're in Unit 2002. It's okay, but the owners could definitely make some improvements. There are no kitchen towels or dish cloths and the front door frame needs to be either cleaned or repainted. For the second time in two years... More
