“some perpective”
Reviewed June 13, 2009

okay, this place is nice....not perfect but nice! If you are expecting an international 'All Seasons' standard you may be disappointed.
Its an apartment resort so dont expect daily service, thats not standard here. You can however pay for it if you want it that bad, or else stay somewhere else!
Rooms are a little dated, but well provisioned.Yes you will to restock basic provisions yourself. These are easily accessible at handy but overpriced reception or about 500m South at Coles grocery store/supermarket.
The grounds are really lovely, tropical and calming and there are two nice pools and BBQ areas. One pool was heated, but only just enough to swim in.
Beds were OK. Bedrooms are not airconditioned but living room is. This may be an issue in summer.
I found the staff nice, not rude at all.
Balcony doors had extra locks and doorways had special locks. There is a room safe provided for small valuables. We were not broken into.
Quiet end of Miami probably would not suit anyone looking for some nightlife or who wants to be in the thick of things, but for a family on a relaxing quiet holiday with easy access to the beach we liked it., A car would be recommended.
On Saturday a seafood supplier came and we bought great fresh tasty local prawns for a great price. She blows a whistle and sings out "fresh prawns". Dont hesitate.
All in all a good stay. Excellent value for money.
Recommended.

My husband, son and I stayed for 3 nights and were very very disappointed. Dirty, tired rooms.More like an up market caravan park than a resort.They charge $1 for a roll of toilet paper and only change the sheets every 8 days!Poo on floor in ladies toilet.Stay away!!

we have previously stayed at Grande Florida three times. Twice in a two bedroom apartment and the last in a three bedroom apartment. Each time was fantastic. We found the staff to be cortious and willing to help. We are now in the process of organising another trip to Grande Florida which ourselves and our children are looking forward to emnsly! We have no problem in telling people what a great resort it is when they ask what is the best place to stay.

We arrived after 2 days on the road not really knowing what to expect. We were booked in for 13 days and were really excited. We had been reading mixed reviews, Our room wasn't quite ready when we arrived but wthin an hour the kids were in the gorgeous heated pool and didn't want to get out. We had a bottom floor apartment and it was absolutely beautiful. And safety was not of a concern once we were inside - all entrances lock and there was a safe in our roomThe bathrooms were the only rooms that could do with a makeover.
Our 4 and 5 year old girls felt they were in paradise. This tropical feeling resort has won our hearts and i am sure we will be back. It was spotless, the barbecues were always clean and ready to go, the gardens are delightful, the pools are amazing,the staff are friendly and helpful. It is an amazing place and we didn't want to leave.
We did the theme park holiday even driving up to Australia Zoo but the kids loved being able to swim before we went any where and when we got back. I really cant say enough about this gorgeous tropical oasis.
There was a group of people who turned up during our 2nd week and they took over - of the impression they were the only ones there but they were the only rude people we came across.
