not represented well in on line reservation site

Pros: location
Cons: need to better represent what it is- management even says it's not a hotel, nor meant to be
Location: close to parks/shopping. easy to drive to
The reservation was not what was represented- booked a one bedroom suite with limited housekeeping, courtyard view, and balcony. was given one bedroom suite overlooking parking lot and no patio/balcony- told that did not exist. NO housekeeping for duration of 3 night stay. thin walls, and scampering of small kids in room above limited good rest. location was good for what I wanted, and the amenities- pool and outdoor activities were nice. didn't use the kitchenette. Superficially designed to look more like an upscale resort- but details showed poor craftsmanship. no assistance with luggage offered, but trolleys intermittently available. requested late checkout instead of 10 am, and was given an 11 am departure.

Really nice rooms and lovely location

The staff was really nice and helped us get us a room that was the best for our needs. Every staff member says hello and asks if everything is alright. If you need anything they do everything to get it for you quickly.

Lots of comfort amidst the crazy.

Pros: I liked that it was very quiet and the staff was friently. The rooms were comfortable and spacious and clean.
Cons: I think that the resort could provide the paddle boards, kayaks and paddle boats for the guests without a charge. Most resorts do in my experience.
Location: The location is perfect if you are visiting the parks.
The Grand Beach was perfectly like the positive reviews. It was a very low key, relaxing and fun environment to return to after a day out in the crazy area of Orlando. We had fabulous weather and I felt like we were in an island somewhere. We were on the 5th floor of building 8 and it was extremely quiet. Our view in room 8510 was ehh, but the proximity to the courts, lake and pool was nice. I am an early riser and walker and the lobby had fresh purified water and complimentary coffee that I appreciated very much.

We had a nice time at the Grand Beach hotel. The hotel staff were very friendly. There were many activities as the main pool. It was a fun place. The furniture is a little dated and it needs a little sprucing up in the dining room and living room but it is very clean. We would definitly go back.

The essentials are superb!

In a nutshell, room and grounds could not be better. Pools and activities are fairly basic however, so if you are looking for a full resort experience this may not be your best bet. Otherwise, this is a top notch choice...

Great stay! Wish we could've stayed longer!

The room was accomodating!  In fact, we were upgraded to a 3 bedroom for the price of a 2 bedroom.  The place was spacious, clean, and had a more than adequate kitchen.  Rooms were clean and having 3 bathrooms was a plus! For the price we paid, I think this place was the best, and we've stayed in many "condo" hotels in Orlando due to us being a Family of 6!  I would certainly come back!  The only downside was the loud workers at 6am!  They need to tone down their voices at that hour.
