We (wife and 7yr old daughter) just finished our third stay in GV.
Overall, we enjoyed the experience this time around as we have on the previous 2 occasions.
Good: Clean property, choice of several pools, good beach access and newer built Pier off beach which is very nice for semi-private sunbathing. Food and drinks are decent and plentiful. Access to spa pool is included in all-inclusive package. Housekeeping staff was good and mini-bar refreshed daily as promised.
Bad: The hotel is understaffed for the number of guests especially in the restaurant "Mythos". Tables sit at long intervals uncleaned and it can take awhile to get drink service at dinner. Hotel has aged a bit with worn carpet in rooms and hallways.
The evening program begins at 9:30pm which could be a bit late for those with young children since the children's evening program ends at 9pm.
Ugly: A/C: The air conditioning is centrally controlled and runs on a schedule determined by the hotel...basically in 2-3 hour intervals throughout the day and night. If you are back in your room at say 4pm, you may not have cold air blowing but just warm air. We had to wait until after 10pm in evening before the cool AC kicked in.More
