“Beautiful hotel with real southern charm.”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This hotel resort was really lovely. Wish the rooms were a little bigger for the price. Food was fabulous in the restaurant. There's lots to do here & I love that it wasn't commercialized in this town...just a quaint little place.

We stayed for the first time and it was great! The historic property located near the town of Fairhope rests on the water's edge and provides spectacular views of Mobile Bay. There are brick pathways all along the water front and through out the property. The Grand has its own pier for fishing and gazing at the Bay. The accommodations were clean and very comfortable. Our room had a flat screen TV with HBO and cable connected. We were very pleased with the positive, happy attitude of the staff. They went the extra lengths to answer questions and do all they could to ensure our comfort. (You will find this same friendly, positive customer service attitude in the adjacent town of Fairhope too. Fairhope is only a few miles from the resort.) The Grand has plenty of amenities to choose including wave runners, small sail boats, kayaks, horseshoe games, multiple pools (one with a water slide and one exclusively for adults), bikes, exercise facility and more. Each day at 4 p.m. all guests are invited to attend the historical cannon salute followed by complimentary high tea with cookies. The service and food quality in the restaurants on property were very good however, the cost of food was pricey as might be expected of a resort. For example, breakfast for two was nearly $50. So, we ventured to Fairhope for all three daily meals where the price was considerably less yet, the variety and quality were excellent as advertised. Overall, no regrets. We definitely plan to return to the resort and the local area.

Room Tip: Rooms are well appointed and what you want (i.e., ocean view or not) depends on your price preferenc...

I've visited this resort quite a few times and every time I do, I'm always restored afterwards. It's the perfect place to wind down and recuperate from any job. There are a lot of activities available and with it sitting on Mobile Bay you get warm breeze from the surrounding water and the picture perfect sunsets. The property is big enough to find a quiet spot to be alone or to gather your thoughts. I have yet to try the spa, but I did enjoy the complimentary hour bike ride, which was a lovely way to see the area. It's a bit pricey but money well spent! Go forth and relax!

Room Tip: Get to pool early to guarantee chairs for those in your party and don't forget to make sure you...

My wife and went to the Strand for 2 days as a summer end break. Very relaxing and accommodating with many good restaurants in the quaint town of (Fairhope). Also, thoroughly enjoyed the piano bar at night in the Birdcage. With that said, buyer beware - pay attention at booking time - that there is an additional 15% resort "tax" (per night) tacked onto your bill at checkout so take this into account when reserving your room. I expect we may go back to the Strand but will definitely pay more attention to the additional costs and not be enamored with the published rate/night.

Back to the Grand for a quick get a way. Fabulous as always. On this trip there was just 2 adults so we were thankful for the Adult Pool for some relaxing pool time with great staff to get you anything you need. The dining experience in the Saltwater Grill was disappointing this trip but the other food areas more than compensated. Bucky's fir watching sports, a quiet after dinner drink or to listen to the piano bar is the best way to end the day.

Room Tip: I prefer the north bay building, 3rd floor, facing the bay

Stayed 3 nights 7/30 - 8/1. Check in was quick but requested a king room when booking 2 months prior and got room with 2 double beds. Don't know of hotels that still have doubles, usually at lest 2 queens. They couldn't accommodate us in a king. Room was in the Marina building near the pool, but a walk to the lobby. Nice breakfast buffet and al la carte menu. Hotel grounds are scenic overlooking Mobile bay, small sand beach. Pool area was packed. It was difficult to find a parking space if dining elsewhere and returning at 9-10PM.

My wife and I stayed at the Grand Resort last weekend for a family reunion-and what a reunion it was! Over 200 people in attendance, and everyone really did make us feel welcome, from the shuttle driver who picked me up from the airport, to the front desk, to the gift shop. Room was great.

There were some logistics issues on Saturday night that make me stop short of 5 stars.
For our Saturday evening final dinner, the service was slow and lacking. We had to wait far too long for meals, and I heard several dropped dishes in the room. When someone apologizes for service issues, they need to stop apologizing and TAKE CARE of the issue!

It was also confusing as there was also a wedding in the same building where we had our dinner, and we had to go through that area to get out. Very poor planning on their part.

It made what could have been a 5 star weekend just a bit less, and for the prices that are charged (which includes a 15% resort fee, BTW), it probably won't be worth it for us.
