We went here for a charity event and it was fantastic, the hotel and ball rooms were nicely decorated and the staff super friendly. Parking was a breeze and the food we sampled was over the top, hope to come again next year.

First off, I would have given this 5 stars, but the resort was renovating the building next to ours and did not tell us at checkin. It was very noisy with scrapping of paint. The resort was very quiet so I am sure that we could have been put in another unit farther away. When we told the front desk,...

We had an ocean view, 2 bedroom suite, very accessible for my wife's new hip. Kayla and Kia, and really everyone on the Front Desk staff went out of their way to help us enjoy our 50th Anniversary.

We are owners in Aruba and found this resort to be very similar, but on a much smaller scale. We also were there at the end of October/early November, getting into off season, as well as the area recovering from Hurricane Matthew, so things were very quiet. The property was in great shape. Our condo inside looked brand new and...

Grande Ocean continues to be one of Marriott's top resort destinations. They deserve it as the place is a 5 star resort with great staff and activities. We were here with our niece from Texas and we had a fabulous time. Weather was perfect.
