The Grand Hotel is an excllent choice for those not wishing to experience the hustle and bustle of South Beach on their doorstep. It is a 7 minute bus ride from the main resort with its numerous bars and restaurants. The buses (S or L) run about evey 15 minutes until very late into the evening. A taxi will cost about $10.
When choosing the Grand Beach we didn't expect too much but was pleasantly surprised on arrival. The reception is bright and clean and the staff at the Reception Desk were helpful. Unfortunately, the Bell Captain was non existent. After waiting 45 minuites for my bags I went back to reception and collected them myself.
We stayed in room 1832. It had a full sea/beach view, a large balcony, a small lounge area with large TV, small kitchen, a seperate bedroom with large TV, a full bathroom, and a shower room; overall a nice clean room.
The bar in the hotel is in an odd location approximately 25 feet away and directly opposite to the reception desk. The swimming pool was small and the surrounding area shaded. We could never get a sun lounger. They have an adult only pool of the 7th floor but that to was always busy with no free loungers. $20 a day for two sunbeds and $10 a day for each umbrella on the beach is excessive.
