“Vacation at the Grand Beach Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

Beautiful place. Courteous people to greet us, even speaking our language (French). Excellent food and commodities. Being an author, I was spoiled by being able to write under the palm trees, by the swimming pools near Chez Gaston. A special appreciation for a man who served us two years in a row, always polite, always courteous: Jean-Paul Blondet.

We had a great stay here, the hotel is immaculate, the staff are friendly, the swimming pools are clean and if you choose the right one then won't be too busy.
The room was good, thank god for aircon because it was hot!
But the beach was AMAZING!

Dear Jimbo S, thank you for choosing the Grand Beach Hotel and for giving us the top traveler rating possible.
It is pleasing to read of the joyful experience you have spent onsite with us. We appreciate the positive feedback you have had to share of our staff service attitude. It is a top strive for us at the Grand Beach Hotel to welcome and service all our guests in a hospitable and attentive manner. We are glad our efforts to maintain a clean and immaculate environment throughout the property has met your expectations. You are correct to mention that the first level family pool tends to get busier at times; therefore, we also do our best to recommend guests to also visit the 7th floor adults only tranquility pool or the beach area, accessible directly from hotel premises. It is great to know you have enjoyed the time spent there.
We would like to thank you once again for your review. Now that you have experienced and enjoyed what Grand Beach Hotel has to offer, we would like to welcome you back again soon.

we were received very friendly, room is just great for a family with 5 pax (3 large beds in a 2-room apartment), view is fantastic and the quality of the breakfast buffet is very high.
Friendly staff, all clean, no desires left open - a 'can do' attitude throughout the whole grand beach
We enjoyed it again, and next year we will be back again for sure. Highly recommended.

Very nice hotel, and the rooms are good. Great location, and helpful staff. It's fake like the rest of Miami Beach, but you can't expect otherwise, and it is nice anyway, so we didn't really care about that :-)

We stayed at this hotel in late June to early July. Hotel is very clean. Everything from the lobby to the 6 elevators were clean and spotless. We stayed on the 20th floor facing the beach, and the view was spectacular. Beds were clean and soft. The balcony gave us views of the beach and parts of the Bay across the street. From the room, you could see the cruise ships out in the ocean, and could see the sun rising in the morning.

The hotel has 3 pools and 4 hot tubs. 2 of the pools and 2 of the hot tubs are located on the 1st floor before you get to the beach area, and the third pool and other two hot tubs are located on the 7th floor. The 7th floor is the adult-only location. There were plenty of white towels.

The location isn't near anything walking distance. You either have to walk several blocks to get to a restaurant. There is an iHOP restaurants near 67th street and Collins. You have to take the S Bus there if you don't have a car or don't want to take a taxi. Also there is a Burger King, Dominos, Walgreens, and CVS approximately 20 minutes south of the hotel and over three small bridges.

Staff were nice. The hotel restaurant is way over priced. One morning we went downstairs to the lobby to see the restaurant which is located in the back before you get to the private beach, and they wanted $23 per person for a buffet-style breakfast. Too expensive, so we left.

Room Tip: The Double Ocean View suites are nice. They directly face the ocean.

The first thing I have to say is this is a BIG and very busy hotel, however, it works like a small boutique hotel. Room service, housekeeping, front desk, concierge, all impeccably agile and professional. The location is great. The rooms are super comfortable with great beds and pillows and showers. The beach service is that of a top hotel and in general we loved everything about our stay at the Grand Beach. Would return for sure!

On the downside, the parking cost and the waiting times for our car to be brought by the valet service might be improved, however the people are so nice and the hotel works so well, that this one aspect did not affect what we thought was a great stay..

Dear RoxinBA, we appreciate your review of the Grand Beach Hotel and the top traveler rating you have had to share of your stay with us.
At the Grand Beach Hotel, it is our main strive to deliver the best accommodations and the most attentive service possible to all our guests; thus, we are encouraged by the wonderful feedback you have extended in relevance with so many of our property’s services. It is unfortunate you have found our valet parking service as a downside during your visit to property and even though its pricing and efficiency have not affected your overall experience at our hotel, we would like to share with you that valet parking fees are a standard on Miami Beach due to the limitation in space. We hope you would be happy to learn that our property charges a below average for the area valet parking fee, despite the fact that we extend this service 24-hours a day and provide in/out privileges with it.
We look forward to welcoming you back again soon and appreciate your business and feedback, which will certainly be passed along to the team.

My daughter and I stayed here July 11th thru July 16th, its a beautiful hotel. Staff at the front desk were helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms were very spacious, but the description for our room did say there would be apull out couch, there was not. The rooms were very clean. Great location, far enough away from South Beach and the noisy clubs, only 15 minutes by car.
The cons- valet parking only $30.00 a day, you can call ahead for your car but you will still have to wait, this should be an option not mandatory, there is a parking lot down the street but its $20.00 a day and you have to walk. Also smoking is allowed right outside the doors of the lobby, this is a problem for those of us that dont smoke. Alot of thier guests light up right outside the doors and stand there to wait for thier cars.
The pool on the 7th floor states adults only but both times we were there, there were young kids in the pool
I would definately recommend this hotel

Room Tip: We stayed on the 15 th floor with a view of the ocean to the left, and Biscayne Bay to the right. B...

Dear CChristie966, thank you for spending the time to write a review of your recent stay onsite.
We are pleased to learn you have found our property to be beautiful. At the Grand Beach Hotel, we strive to welcome all our guests in a hospitable and attentive manner. In this regard, we are happy to read of your satisfaction with the helpful and knowledgeable service that our front desk staff delivered. We appreciate the positive comment you have had to share regarding our room accommodations due to their spaciousness and cleanliness. It is great to know our beachfront location has proved convenient to you and your family during your recent visit due to its direct access to the beach area as well as its close proximity to South Beach. We are very sorry to hear about your disappointment with our valet parking service fee. Unfortunately, valet parking is a standard on Miami Beach due to the limitation in space. We hope you would be happy to learn that our property charges one of the lowest valet parking fees in the area, even though we offer this service 24-hours a day with in/out privileges to guests. The 7th floor pool onsite is indeed an adults only pool area limited to guests above the age of 21. Our management takes this rule seriously and acts very efficiently and promptly when alerted that under aged guests are present at this area; thus, we encourage all our guests to not hesitate and contact management when this happens to be the case.
Thank you once again for your feedback. We sincerely hope you would be willing to choose our hotel next time you visit Miami Beach.
