“Attentive staff, fun activities, great views.....Wonderful”
Reviewed August 19, 2006

My husband, two year old son, and I stayed at The Grand Hotel this past weekend with a group of my husband's co workers. We could not have asked for a better trip. It is true that there is construction and not all of the resort is open. The only limitation that this seemed to cause was a lack of on site places to choose from for dinner. We ate dinner at the Lakewood restaurant for one dinner which was great and the drinks were perfect. We ate our other meals at the poolside bar/restaurant which was perfect for cold cocktails and easy meals for kids. The staff at the restaurant was GREAT. They always seemed to remember us and greeted us with smiles and warm words. The resort it self has a lot to offer. We spent most of our time by the pool which is perfect for all ages. My son was fine playing without floaties and never got bored b/c there were so many different places to explore. They also had crafts, activities, bikes, boats, playground, etc for kids/families/adults to use. I did not go to the spa, but one of the women in our group said the quiet room was wonderful and that the massage was the best she had ever gotten. There is entertainment in the evenings and a social hour in the afternoon. Our room was on the first floor of the Spa Building. It was very nice and had everything we needed. It was clean and well kept. The beds were comfortable with new, soft, linens. We did not have a balcony, but did have french doors that opened up to a view of the marina. It was beautiful at sunrise. The staff went out of the way to make our trip carefree. For example, after realizing our two year old was not going to make it through a sit down dinner (what were we thinking to begin with???) we needed a last minute sitter. I had never used an onsite baby sitter that I was not familiar with. I was nervous. We used the "AYS" button on our phone and were able to arrange for a sitter. They suggested the local nanny group out of the phone book at first. I told them I was not comfortable with those services and would rather use one of their camp counselors or lifeguards etc to do the baby sitting. They understood, went to work on a solution, and called us back in no time. The director of recreation scheduled her 19 year old, college student, daughter to keep our son. She was such a wonderful baby sitter and I felt comfortable with her since her family and other people who knew here were right on site. When we returned my son cried and begged me to stay with the sitter longer. That never happens.....so should show what a good job she did to keep him busy, safe, and entertained. Everything was pleasing and easy. We went with work, but will definitly return for a vacation or a quick getaway weekend.
