This was a dream come true vacation for me. And I was able to share it with two very good friends. The Grand Hotel was celebrating its 125th Anniversary and everything offered was over the top. The quality of service was outstanding from the wait staff, bellboys, room attendants etc.
The meals are served in a grand manne, 5 course and very elegant like a step back in time. Getting dressed for dinner was such a treat. And the food was very good, to die for desserts. It was a girls weekend for us and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. We spent evenings on the veranda with a glass of wine and chatted the night away. The attention to detail, the service, the beautifullly appointed rooms are something you rarely find at any resort. And to top it all off a horse -drawn carriage tour of the island, bellisimo. We stayed at the Grand during the summer
but my new plans are to return during the fall. I would recommend the Grand Hotel for any family, couple(very romantic), or girls road trip.
