“AMMMMMMAAAZZZZZIIINGGGGG”
Reviewed June 2, 2010

I stayed at Grand Beach this past weekend for Memorial Day weekend. I was so suprised at the amenties the hotel included for the low price I paid. There are a total of 3 pools, 2 downstairs, and 1 on the 7th floor. The only bad thing was that it was a little ways from South Beach and we had to catch a cab everytime. I would recommend this anyone who is looking for a luxury hotel.

The beach views were great (if you get a room with a view). Also great views of the canal and downtown Miami. The hotel is very clean, but most of the staff speaks Spanish (as does everyone in Miami, apparently). This can make it difficult at times to get your car, or talk to the concierge, etc.

The pool/spa areas are very nice and there is direct beach access from the pool area. Also, the beach is very nice and clean. The hotel has a station on the beach to provide chairs/umbrellas (for rental), towels, and water. It made going to the beach very convenient.

The biggest downside is the parking. You are forced to valet and it costs $25 per day. This makes it very inconvenient at times. If you forget something in your car, it can take up to an hour for them to find it for you because you won't be allowed in the garage. Also, every time you want to go anywhere, you have to call ahead to get your car. So, do you tip every time they bring it? After paying $25 per day, this can get very pricey.

Overall, I would stay here again because it was in a nice area and it was a very nice hotel.

I just returned from a 4 night stay with my husband, his cousin and her fiancee and we're thinking of returning for my husband's birthday in Septemeber. The location was perfect and the hotel was fabulous. I would have liked to see cheaper prices for the onsite restaurant ($70 for breakfast for 4.), a microwave in the room, and the valet took a little too long at times. We did find an IHOP 15 mins down Collins (keep straight on Collins when you turn out of the driveaway and it'll be on your left) where we got breakfast for under $50 for 4 people. The heated pools are so relaxing. The staff was very friendly and helpful and my husband ran into the owner a couple of times. He was very nice and wanted to make sure that we were happy with our rooms. The beds are a dream and the cleaning staff was very good.

This is a nice property somewhat away from the hustle and bustle of SoBe. The pool areas and the beach were very relaxing. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We choose this hotel for a business function. A good value for the money.

Spent four nights in April with spouse and teen daughter. Ocean front room was fabulous; lots of closet space; 2 bathrooms, king bed and separate area with sofa bed and second bathroom. My daughter could have her own space/ own tv/ own desk. Fridge was handy, toaster would be desirable. Having breakfast on the balcony facing the ocean was great. Saw delivery of lots of balcony furniture while there. Restaurant in hotel is okay re food and price, but service in the evening was awful. By now perhaps they have worked out some of the kinks. I would certainly return. Thought the robes were fine, would have liked to see a makeup mirror in the bathroom.

I so enjoyed staying at the grand beach hotel, the beach is right behind the hotel, they have like 3 pools, the tranquility pool was so nice and peaceful..the only problem was the travel back and forth to ocean's drive. The bus was $2 bucks but ran slow at night. It stops at about 17th Collins, so we had to walk blocks to get to the strip starting at 5th. My hotel room was so comfortable, the staff was very nice and professional..another problem was the $450.00 fee they needed for security, luckily I had a cc with that type of money..all and all I would not stay here again because I loved Ocean's Drive so much, but I really had a good time.

Stayed with husband and two kids after our caribbean cruise, beautiful location. We had a room with views of the ocean on one side and views of the bay on the other side. Our room was perfect for a family of four. Two queen beds and a sofa bed.

Loved the pool and being so close to the beach, however there is a charge for beach chairs $10 a chair so for a family of four to make it worth while you would need to stay there most of the day.

Thought the food was a bit pricey for what you got and the service needs a little bit of work. Hotel was very clean considering everything was white (they might regret using white as a decor as time goes on).

We booked a Miami city and boat tour from the concierge which I would recommend doing.

The only down side was that there isn't many restaurants around but we did manage to find a wonderful family Italian restaurant, great food and great price called Carrabba's Italian Grill which is around 10-15 minute walk on Collins Ave.

Beware though my husband's expensive razor was stolen but the staff handled it well, he had to claim it on the insurance.

Despite all this I would stay here again.
