We stayed at Grand Seas resort last week (April 8-14). The only way you could write a negative review of this place is if you are nitpicking at every little thing! This place is great. To all the reviews saying the floor is dirty... well ANY place located RIGHT ON the beach is going to have sand on the floors! no matter how well you clean there is no avoiding it! Its part of staying on the ocean! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful in every way... going above and beyond to help us! One guy even used his own internet to find a location for us on his break... not many people would do that where we are from. The area in general is very laid back, the people are interesting, fun, sooo friendly and non judgemental! We LOVE daytona beach/ormond beach! This resort is not right "downtown" near all the activities, boardwalk, bars, etc, but its right down the street, we even walked it a couple times which is a beautiful walk along the beach! The buses run frequently up and down atlantic so we didnt even rent a car and we got everywhere we wanted to go and more! We actually liked the fact that this resort is a little further north because the beaches arent even close to as crowded its more peaceful and relaxing! No there arent balconies on the beach side, but we got a room that had a balcony type walk in the hallway.. which was almost as good... and the view from our room is amazing!! The entire wall is a window! There was plenty of space and included everything we needed for a week stay. I wouldnt say its a 5 star resort but its pretty darn nice, and only a snob would complain about this resort! We werent bothered at all about a timeshare, and when we were asked once they left us alone aterwards. If you dont use the internet they dont charge you the resort fee. We didnt see one single bug in our room just amazing and beautiful beaches. The pools are clean and beautiful, it would be such a great place for a family with the waterslides and playground and mini golf. We really liked the hot tubs outside which are great on a chilly night. The bar is nicely located and friendly. The food at gilligans is GREAT and not too expensive, and is nicely decorated and modern. Their specials are awesome. Overall we had a GREAT vacation here and if given the opportunity, would definately stay again. A couple recommendations in ormond beach.. Peppers mexican grill about a mile north on atlantic and also Artistic Soul tattoos a couple miles north in ormond beach (we got tattoos while we were there). They are amazing artists and the friendliest, cleanest, most accomodating people ever! We finally found them after checking out the rediculous 'flash' tattoo places in daytona beach. And thank god we did! If we ever return to florida we will be making a trip out there to see them no matter how far the drive! Overall we definately recommend Grand Seas resort and the daytona/orm ond beach area overall!! We didnt want to come home!
