“Affordable Vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011

Grand Beach is an affordable option for a beach trip. The condos we stayed in was managed by a local real estate company. The pool and hot tub are nice. The complex is across the street from the beach. There is no complex access to the beach so you have to walk all the way across the sand. Wear shoes to cross the road and the sand. Depending on your unit, you will need to bring all your paper products and soaps. They don't really make that clear in their materials. I suggest these items: laundry soap, hand soap, bath soap, automatic dishwasher detergent, paper towels, toilet tissue, kleenex and hand sanitizer. The only issue we had was with a very rude security guard that seemed to be on a power trip. Make sure your parking pass is CLEARLY in your car window or the security guard may eat you alive. Otherwise, if you are looking for an affordable no frills place to stay, Grand Beach is nice.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2009

We stayed in GB 419 and this room was disgusting! The mattress pad had a pee stain on it, the sheets made us break out in hives, and the placemats and carpets were corroded! It is not on the beach, and is covered with rust on the outside! It is barely big enough to turn around in. The shower was designed for people no more than 4 foot 11 inches tall. The bathroom had nasty hair wrapped around the sink and doorknob. We were charged $700 for 4 nights, and I had rather of slept in the car. Or on the beach! Fortunately, we were able to move to Phoenix II and enjoy the rest of our trip! DO NOT STAY HERE!!! GROSS!

The Grand Beach condo was very clean and just as described on the Meyers Real Estate web site. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

  • Liked — great access to the beach
  • Disliked — nothing
