Exchanged through RCI for this resort and stayed in a two bedroom 3rd floor unit in building 8.
You enter into the kitchen and immediately came up against a large round kitchen table. Very hard to get around it especially with a luggage cart. Kitchen was fine, well stocked with all the appliances and utensils for a weeks stay. Livingroom had a pull out couch that was not very comfortable. TV was way too small I think it was about a 25" . Door to balcony was just about ready to break and the balcony was in much need of upgrades. Our wonderful view was a bunch of electrical lines from the power plant. Traffic on state road 535 was crazy and noisy.
Master bedroom was very big with a nice king size bed large jacuzzi tub and nice shower. Master also had a small TV.
Second bathroom as well was nice and big and decorated well. The second bedroom though had two twin beds and we found the room to be very small. Could barely get into the closet as one bed was right against it. The room also did not have a TV and really should have. So called dresser looked like wooden slats put together not very impressed.
Mid week housekeeping was nice as most resorts don't do this anymore.
Found the a/c to be extremely noisy, large unit was located in the ceiling outside the bedroom doors in the hallway. Washer and dryer were full size.
The resort itself does not have gated security and there was a note in our package that said they were experiencing vehicle breakins in the area, so don't leave anything valuable in them.
This did not make me feel secure at all. The pool areas were very nice, we had what looked like a newer pool by our building with a hot tub area, and there is also a pool at the main check in building. Both were well heated but lacked a bar at both. I also found they should really announce all daily actiivities over some kind of a speaker as you didn't know what was happening at the check in pool from the other pool.
We did the timeshare tour, was very pressured at check in to take it even though we kept telling the girl Shelley that we didn't want to. THis was a mistake the manager was very rude and basically called us liars. We told them from the beginning that we were not interest in Sunoption points or any other timeshare as we already had 3 of them. He kept on and on. Never again.
Sunterra Grand Beach resort was OK, I don't think we will exchange back though as I just did not feel very secure there. I would have looked to have seen the 3 bedroom units though, as I am sure they are much larger than the 2 bedroom ones.
