Just returned from The Grand-WOW. It was amazing. My husband went to Iberostar Beach resort and loved it-but wanted to go to the Grand for our honeymoon. What a great decision!! I read the reviews on here before we left and I wanted to contribute my own opinion-it may be lengthy, but hopefully people will find it helpful!
As soon as we walked into The Grand, we were greeted with smiles and mimosas! We were ushered to the front desk and were upgraded a room for our honeymoon! The room was actually ready even though we got their earlier than scheduled. When we walked in, the room was beautiful. The bellhop showed us the room, balcony, and the binder with room service, pillow choices (I know, I know), movie choices, and tv stations. I like a firmer mattress and the mattress they have are soft pillow tops. I know a lot of people like those, but it was pretty soft for me. The staff worked very hard to make it more comfortable!
The bathroom is really big with two sinks, a hair dryer and a make up mirror. The shower is incredible with a rain showerhead..so relaxing! The tub in the middle of the bathroom is great! Our night butler, Kevin, filled it a couple times with bubbles and rose petals for us! Very nice touch ;) When we got back from dinner that night, we got back to the room and the bed was turned down with little chocolates! The air conditioning does not work when the door to the balcony is opened, which makes sense. It did get a little warm in the room, but eventually cooled off. Overall, a 10/10 for the room.
Food: The dining is great! The buffet has a lot of choices and the food is great! We went to the Italian restaurant, the Surf and Turf, and the Japanese restaurant. All of the food was good, but we definitely liked the Japanese the best! It had a great atmosphere (see the picture) and amazing food! We were a little surprised that the only red wine they had to offer was merlot. Not a big deal at all, but it was surprising that the only time you could get Cabernet was at the Italian restaurant for an added cost...but that was the only thing I would change regarding the dining experience. The breakfast buffets were delicious as well. There was an indoor buffet and an outdoor buffet by the pool. The drinks were wonderful! I cannot tell you how many bars this resort has!! Anytime you need a drink, just turn around and there will be a bar or someone willing to grab your order! Overall, dining 9/10!
Beach and pool: wonderfully refreshing! The ocean was beautiful!! I couldnt get over it! We walked down the beach to the other Iberostar resorts and noticed how many trees were on the beach there compared to at The Grand. The Grand definitely has the best beach! Plenty of chairs, however we did go down before breakfast to snag 2 chairs for the day. Like I said, there was always someone around to get a drink if you needed one. At one point, one of the waitresses, Jodi, knew the drink I liked and always had one ready for me! Overall, beach/pool 10/10
Entertainment: I could go on forever about the amazing people that work here! We definitely made some friends while we were there and actually were asked to be in one of the shows! It was a lot of fun. The Star Friends and the bands at night were great!! My husband and I loved Peter (Mr. Neat), Thunda, Fresh, Bubbles, Kiki, and Stella!! Such amazing and fun people. 10/10!
Overall, 10/10. Will we come back? Definitely!! The other guests were a blast to hang out with as well!!
Sorry for the long review, but everything about this hotel was amazing!! I hope you stay here and enjoy your stay as much as we did!! I hope Iberostar knows the wonderful people they have working for them: our butlers, Kevin and Densten. Star Friends that I have already listed, all of the swim up bar bartenders, and we LOVED Jodi-Kay :) Thanks for a wonderful stay!!!
