We have just arrived back from a week in the Grand and had a lovely holiday. The weather was hot for the time of the year and very warm in the evening too,
the hotel is ideally situated for the town with numerous bars and restaurants. and a 15 m in walk to the old town.
As for the Hotel itself it was very good, I read some of the reviews before we went and was getting a bit anxious as to what we where going too, However it was a nice surpirse because we had a wonderful seaview room which was probably one of the ones that had been refurbed the carpet - curtains - and the decorating was new. we where in room 554 ask for a high floor as the views are great. The reception and public areas are very nice, the pools are good and plenty of sunbeds never had a problem getting a bed even at 10.30am. The Food was good with plenty of choice howver I do agree with some people when they say tables are close together and it gets very busy at times. The chinese and Italian where very good.
The staff we found to be pleasant and helpful. We went ALL INC which we have done for the last few holidays as its now expensive to eat and drink out every day or night now. The dirnks arent the top quality brands and sometimes i didnt think there wasnt any alcohol in a few of them that they served up especially the cocktails, The only other thing I dont like anymore is having to queue at the bar to get drinks, there was no waiter service. There is a bar in reception but you had to pay for drinks there and yes there was waiter srv. I do think you are treated a bit like 2nd class citizens when you are on all inclusive basis these days.
In all I would recommend this hotel for a good location and nice pleasant surroundings.
We ate out 3 times just for a change of scenery really and I can recommend a couple of restaurants - Le Bistro which is out of the hotel turn first left to the crossroads and its on the corner. and YAMAS which was out of the hotel turn left and walkt to the roundabout turn left and its just up on the left hand side. Both where execellent food and service.
