I rarely write reviews, but promised myself I would do so after staying at the Grand Hotel, in January 2013 (better late than never!). I researched extensively on where my husband and I should go for our 10 year anniversary. We don't go on long trips often, so wanted to make the most of it. After reading numerous positive reviews of the Grand, we booked. I was a little nervous about an all-inclusive, but my fears came to nothing. Service, food and accommodations were all top notch. I highly recommend an ocean-front room. The view was breath-taking, like out of a movie. The fruit basket upon arrival was a nice touch, along with checking in in our room. We were surprised with champagne and edible chocolate flowers a couple of nights. The hardest choices of the day were, should we go to the beach or pool, what kind of seafood to try, and what fun drink should be next! My husband and I really appreciate good food, and we were not disappointed. We found the food to be fresh and delicious (lobster twice a day? Why, yes!). We stayed in a fairly blissful state for 8 days. Even with some rain, we just went to the indoor pool or read books on our balcony. We went to a couple of shows, and to the disco one night. Don't expect Broadway, but still good fun. We also rode bikes, did a yoga class, participated some in pool games and went for long walks on the beach. After walking through a few other resorts, we were so happy to go home to the Grand. I could go on and on, but others have expressed their feelings more eloquently than I have on this site. I'll stop by saying that the Grand exceeded my very high expectations.
