We have stayed many nights at the GC. However, we were greatly disappointed in the management's control over the guests' conduct for this July 4th weekend; and it seems to worsen with each summer holiday. Even though this is a relatively new complex, it is unbelievable how much noise travels from unit to unit. Guests are extremely noisy all hours...

The management of this condominium complex is simply horrible. When we checked in our refrigerator would not close, and consequently was not cold. We could barely get the back doors to the porch to open, and the air conditioner was marginal. We paid $460 per night for this! Just to make sure we nver stayed there again, the management team...

We, just returned from the Grand Caribean,--nothing "Grand" about that place. A/C units make too much noise when they turn on and off, especially in the middle of the night. The pool was green and being worked on, (if you can call it that) Mentenance Man didn't show up till the next day.. We decided to go to the Beach,...

We just returned from the Grand Carribean and we were very disappointed with our stay. The condo was very nice but the service was horrible. They basically only offer a "towel exchange" as far as maid service goes. This was very disappointing considering the complex we had stayed at in the past is the same price and offers full (even...

After a miserable experience at the Mayan Princess three years ago with wet floors and deterioration evidenced throughout our condo with no willingness to remedy the situation by the office staff, two years ago we started going to the Grand Caribbean. We again went this year and have already booked for next year. What a pleasant surprise after our experience...

My husband, 3 year old and friends just returned from a 3 night stay. This place is fantastic. I'd highly recommend it for people with children. We stayed on the 3rd floor, furthest condo away from the pool. (Which I'd recommend as the pool can be crowded and loud.) The condo was lovely. Everything you need. Clean and plenty of...

Our family has just returned from a three night stay at this lovely property that sits so close to the ocean that one feels they are a part of the ocean! We loved waking up early, watching a beautiful sunrise, (we were in a second floor unit) seeing the ocean, and sitting on the patio enjoying our morning coffee or...

We recently stayed in the Grand Caribbean Condos. The staff, including the general manager, are very unfriendly. There is no hospitality! Our A/C unit in the condo we were assigned to would freeze up in the middle of the night and then would make an awful sound when it was defrosting. We will not ever stay at this condo again!...

We have just returned from a 3-night Thanksgiving weekend at the Grand Caribbean. From the initial telephone contact to make a reservation until checkout, the experience was very positive. The location for us (childless couple) was ideal. Located a few miles south of Port Aransas proper, and at least 1 mile from any neighboring condo, the beach was not very...

Our trip in May was wonderful!! The weather was perfect, the beach was a little overflowing with seeweed, but that was being taken care of throughout the day. I would recommend the Grand Carribbean to anyone!! We have been going just about once every three months, and it is well worth it. We call it our "Ladies Only Getaway" and...
