My wife and I stayed at a friend’s timeshare the first 3 days in Destin. Very nice. The next 3 days we had to find a place. We found Grand Caribbean very close to the 1st place and from the reviews on the place we decided to choose it. PEOPLE!! How on earth can you actually like this place. I have been in a more sound proof tent. We arrived early since our other place was only a couple blocks away. They said our room wasn’t ready yet because they were cleaning it. I think the maid cleaned while blind folded. Hair all over the room. In the kitchen, on the dining room table, on the floor, all over the bathroom. GROSS!. There was a layer of dirt all over the place. We were even charged $80.00 to have the room cleaned. Everyone has to pay this. They did a .25 cent job on our room.The refrigerator sounded like a diesel truck. Oh, and the rack inside the fridge was duct taped together. REALLY ???? The ice maker created one huge block of ice instead of cubes. The table and chairs must have been dug out of a trash dumpster. They were falling apart. There was no additional deadbolt on the door and you could see where the door had been kicked in before. The frame is busted. I wasn’t concerned although due to my CHL and hardware accordingly. I especially liked the extension cord and power strip strung across the wall to the TV. Nice touch. The photos on the home page are of a room other than what we stayed in. They would never put our room online. I guess they thought the beaches would compensate for the poor room. Not sure how it got 3 star rating either. Dont expect coffee or even shampoo. NEVER AGAIN.
