“Very Nice Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

We are not golfers, but are Bluegreen owners and wanted to check out St. Augustine. This was our first time in the area. The resort was extremely well maintained. Our one bedroom villa was very spacious and comfortable. My only complaint was that the shower area needed updating. The building we stayed in is scheduled to be remodeled this month anyway however. Most of the buildings have already been remodeled recently. It was very quiet and peaceful. We didn't talk or see a lot of the staff, but all that we encountered were very friendly and helpful. We will come back in the future.

Stay was ok. Our room was outdated. TV's we're from the early 2000's.Sales staff try's so hard to sell you timeshare points. They don't take no for an answer. When you tell them that not at this time they became very belligerent and downright hateful! Could have left at that time! Pool was nice but that is all they have here that was nice!

Went for a wekend and enjoyed tha stay. Welcoming at the reception desk was very friendly as well well as all employees in the areas that we visited. The entire place is nicely kept and clean. Our suite was very confortable and had all the amenities needed for any lenght of stay.It is a few miles away from san agustine which is a beautiful little tow to visit. The resort was quiet and enjoyable.

We enjoyed our stay, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice, we plan to return for sure! I'd request an updated room though, the new rooms they showed us during the tour are beautiful! Unfortunately, we didn't know this prior to our stay.

Spent 6 days at the Grand Villas resort. We had a 1 bedroom unit. It was a decent sized room. Pool area was nice , clean but very loud. If you do not like loud kiddies , ask for a room away from the pool. I do not mind the noise.

there is at least a 20 minute ride to downtown St. Augustine Historic District, but parking down there is plentiful. I would not have given up this beautiful resort to be closer to the downtown area.
So many of the downtown hotels are either really expensive or have poor ratings.


Every one here was nice, welcoming and the grounds were beautiful! We ate next door at Caddy shacks, and loved it. Need to find that place here and give a review.

This place is out of the way, exit 323, historic area is 318 and the beach area is 311 and 305. Plenty of places to eat at the next exit, lots to do in historic district. There is also an IMAX theatre on the grounds. Also you are in the middle of a golf course I do not play, but6 the course did look beautiful.

I would recommend this place, clean, quiet, the walls are thick and you never hear anything above you or next to you at all. I will be back!!!.

We traded our timeshare week for a week at Grande Villas. It is our second stay there. As before, we were impressed with the good customer service. The World Golf Village complex is an interesting place that seems to have not taken off as they hoped. Many of the storefronts are empty. Yet there are good, reasonably priced restaurants, an IMAX theater, a wonderful golf museum and beautiful golf courses.

The Grande Villas seemed a bit tired this time. We were on the top floor of bldg 5 so no noise above us. We were told later that some of the bldgs have been renovated and I wish we had known to ask for that. However, we were reasonably pleased with the accomodation.
