Very Good

The beach access is great. Spinners is a great place to end the night. Really, really, really wish you had ethernet access in your rooms. The wireless network goes in and out. I've never been in a hotel as good as that one that didn't have ethernet in the room, had to go into the lobby to have a secure connection to the internet for an extended period of time without a drop out.

Perfect for our family re-union

We enjoyed a weekend for our family re-union. We enjoyed all amenities of the hotel and the beach side, great food, very friendly and committed staff. Especially the revolving springer restaurant on top of the hotel was amazing and they provided fist-class food, good international wines and professional services. Thank you very much, we will come back.

Grand Plaza really is Grand

The hotel has wonderful amenities, especially sitting right on the beach, with three different restaurants, a pool, a gym, a fantastic penthouse complex and other features. Everything is so convenient. We will definitely return. We ate at all three restaurants and the food was great. All of the staff were very friendly and attentive. We are very happy with Grand Plaza.

Not the room

I have stayed in many different hotels and to be honest, this hotel offers too little for the money. The view of the ocean is awesome but I reserved a full view of the ocean and they gave me room 612 with partial view of the ocean. The floor was full of sand, the room is actually a hallway with two beds, two people cant walk side by side, the room was always warm, I kept setting the AC lower until it was on 60 and it was still warm. There is nothing in the room but coffee, not even a package of creamer. They don't offer breakfast, you have to pay for it For the price of one night at this hotel, is not worth the grief. The staff does the best they can, and they try to help even though the front desk told me there was no other rooms available, I could see from the beach, there were some dark rooms that look empty the whole time we were there. When I called to verify my reservation, they kept telling me that I had a full view of the ocean, but did asked if I was with your Company. Also being new years eve, we asked if the fireworks were visible from the area and they assure me we will see them, another disappointment. They were some so far, you could hardly see them.
