Stayed here Oct. 7-17 2012. Had a great time. Had the beach to ourselves (wife and I). Guess it is slow season but we go every Oct. somewhere and have never seen it this quiet. Some days the only people on the beach were the hawkers. Who, by the way, are some of the most civil in the whole caribbean, a simple "no thanks" was always enough. Did find a cockroach in the tub a couple of nights, but this is the caribbean for heavens sakes. Once I put them out on the deck they left. Food was a little pricey, but as others have said, there are plenty of great places to eat in walking distance. (Umbrellas, Coconuts, Le Chateau across the street, and for great pizza and salad Le boulangerie is not a walk but well worth it. Also towards St. Georges, B B's was very good and the Weiner Scnitzel place.) Needless to say, the price of food at Grand Beach should not be a deterrant. Neither should my spelling. AS to all these negative reviews, I think many people look for a five star vacation at a three star price. If you know how to make the best of a vacation on a beautiful beach with a beautiful pool and clean room this might be the place for you.
