“A Let Down”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

My wife and I recently booked a one week stay at the Grand Seas through Interval International. We chose the property because of ithe "Premier" rating given by Interval, In that context, the resort was a disappointment and we did not stay the full week. The staff was friendly, but their solicitations to attend sales meetings were intrussive. Common areas show age and the wear consistent with a "when needed" maintenance approach. The view from our room was beautiful but the inside showed age and a patchwork of repeat on the spot fixes. This property was described as "State of the art" and "modern" by Interval, and in that context, it was a huge disappointment. We saw it as a heavy traffic, budget travel destination.

Came here for Spring Break. The place was great. Mostly a family resort though. Everything was clean, the pool was nice, as well as the beach. The only complaint I had was the shower handle kept breaking whenever we would turn it on, and would have to get maintenance to fix it. They finally gave us a new one after the third time. Also, they only clean your room once a week (didn't really mind though).

We had an amazing time at the Grand Seas Resort. The hotel staff was incredibly friendly and the rooms were kept very clean. The two pools were a great place to cool off...being right on the beach doesn't hurt either! We had drinks several times throughout our stay at the tiki bar and were always impressed. I would definitely come back here!

I was worried like some others about staying here. They were all completely WRONG! I do not know why they were complaining, I guess anyone can say what they want on the internet. This is not a top line resort, there are several in Daytona Beach that you can spend $500 per night, I suggest the complainers stay there. The room was clean and had a fantastic view. This resort was well worth the price, the pools are great both indoor and outdoor. The restaurant was great and the breakfast special can not be beat. Great location to stores. House keeping was the best. If you have any reservations about staying here, don't worry, you will enjoy your stay.

So far so good! No complaints at all. We got a first floor renovated room. Very nice and clean! The grounds keepers were very nice and were always cleaning and making it look nice outside. The beach was obviously the best part of the vacation. The front desk ladies were very nice when we checked in. No complaints there at all.

Room Tip: Terrace. First floor. Renovated room.

Where do I start? FIRST they LIED about availability of rooms because we were a family, and not bikers on bike week. Booked hotel online cheaper than they said it would cost, and the front guy was embarrassed to see me come back and check in.
A PERVERT tried to kiss and molest my little brother in their elevator and they did NOTHING to help. They just said to call the police.
ALSO, they charged a deposit on my bank card WITHOUT TELLING ME I WOULD HAVE SUCH A CHARGE. When i explained i am a college student and cant afford to go without that money they said its policy. i told them they are supposed to TELL PEOPLE when they are going take more of their money's ham expected, but they basically said tough luck. Two days later and the money IS STILL NOT ON THERE.
DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

Note-I have to say the security was VERY Kind and did everything to help us (They should be working the front desk).

Ps- if you chose to not heed my warning, at least watch out for the Caucasian desk worker with spiky hair and glasses. He was VERY rude, refused to even pretend to be helpful, and obviously had NO IDEA what the hell he was doing.
