Just got back yesterday from a 5 night trip for my friend's wedding and we had an amazing time!! First I'll start off with the room. The room was modern and the cleaning staff do an excellent job tidying up each morning and evening. I loved having the butler service - Rushane and Donovan were excellent! Rushane helped us out with difficult to get reservations at the Surf and Turf restaurant and Donovan surprised my boyfriend and I with a bottle of champagne that we didn't even have to ask for.
Next, the pool area and activities. We did not have trouble finding seats by the pool and the servers were very attentive no matter where we sat. Never waited long for a drink. I also really enjoyed the variety of activity options and the "Star Friends" did a good job running them. There was something new to do pretty much every day. We only saw one show, The Ideal Couple, but it was entertaining and I would definitely recommend it.
The food and drink did not disappoint! Because we were there for a wedding at the Suites next door, we ate at two restaurants there for the rehearsal and wedding dinners. Both dinners were very good - one was at Calabash, the other, Mare Nostrum. The cream of asparagus soup at Calabash was one of my favorite dishes of the vacation. At the grand, we ate at the Surf and Turf, Gourmet, and Kiniro Japanese. Gourmet was our favorite of the trip. The Japanese restaurant has Hibachi tables which was a lot of fun and a great way to mix up all the surf and turf we had been eating. The staff at all the restaurants were very attentive. I'd also recommend getting the food they grill on the pool deck next to the bar and on the beach at lunchtime - delish! Most of the beer available was Red Stripe, and the wine was a house brand. I'd recommend the Tempranillo. There was a large selection of liquor brands to pick from.
If you're trying to pick between the grand and suites, I would pick the grand. I thought it was worth the extra money to have the adults only experience, 24-hour butler and room service, and being able to order bottles of wine, champagne and hard liquor to the room. I also thought the rooms at the grand were larger and more luxurious.
Overall, we had a great experience at this hotel! It was pricey, but worth it. Shout out to the AWESOME piano player at the lobby bar on Friday and Monday night.
