I stayed at the Grand View for over a month. I managed to beat down the price to 500 US for a month. This hotel caters mainly to long term guests, many of whom are students at the St. Georges University.
The View was GRAND but the hotel has many problems. The maid service was dodgy. At one point it was a week between cleanings. What spoiled the stay for me though was the total lack of hot water during my stay. The management´s response to my complaints would be to lie about it being fixed, but it never was. The hotel has a pool, but I never used it as two beautiful beaches are within minutes walking distance. However, the hotel is perched on a steep hill, and you should be prepared for a little sweat, unless you rent a car.
Staff at he hotel were generally friendly, if a little inept, but then it is the Caribbean and all too often badly trained staff is the norm.
All this having been said, my room was reasonably nice, airconditioned, with cable tv and clean and I would recommend the hotel to any budget savy traveller. Hopefully the ownership of the hotel will pass on to a owner who cares more for his property as it is one of the best views on the island.More
