I don't know how The General manager, His executives, and the marvelous staffs continue to do it? The Grande Vista meets the test of time: Can you be consistently great time after time, year in and year out? The answer is a resounding YES they can! We've been coming here for probably 14 years, sometimes with family, sometimes with friends, sometimes just the two of us and most importantly, we're happy, proud, and confident when we bring clients here!
So what attracts us? There's an atmosphere of fun and excitement in the air, for sure. The grounds are meticulously maintained. The pools sparkling -- AND THEY ARE ALL HEATED OUTDOOR POOLS. The accommodations are spacious and modern. (many are being re-modeled) Free WiFi everywhere. Flat screen TV's. Super-fluffy towels. These all count in the tally, but what really sets this resort apart from so many others are the people who make all this happen. They are genuine and there when you need them. They appear mysteriously to help you light the outside grills, give directions and make suggestions, and so much more -- all with a REAL feeling of helping.
We went to Rick's and it was good. Ask for Gus and he'll make sure everything is to your liking.
The many cheerful "Grande Morning, Day, Night" wishes can't help but get you off on the right foot. We particularly enjoy the balcony for dining out, hanging out and star gazing. On the non-park days, there are lots of Grande activities to fill the days and nights, be sure to participate in the Iron Chef competition -- great family fun!
If we rated the Grande Vista as in the movie industry we would have to award them Oscars in the following catagories:
Best Director (General Manager)
Best Supporting Cast
There is one thing we don't like though--Leaving. We hate to leave, but know it will just be a matter of time before we return.
