We came to the Grand Lucayan on a cruise package and stayed 2 days. All we wanted to do was relax in the sun and the pool area delivered that. There was a large pool with plenty of chaise lounges. The landscaping provided areas of shade or sun so that we could choose what was appropriate depending on the weather. The hammocks that were scattered around the grounds were also a wonderful place to hang out and relax. You may have to wait form them however, because there are only a few.
The receptionist made sure to give us a ocean view room high enough to see the water above the trees and the view was fantastic. The sun rose right off our balcony and the sun rise every morning was spectacular.
The two negatives were: 1) The A/C created an ugly streak of dust on the popcorn ceiling. They need to remove the popcorn so that they can keep the ceiling clean. 2) My husband got bit by sand flees on the beach. They didn't bother me but he was bit numerous times. There weren't any at the pool area so that is a good alternative.More
