5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

We spent a week with wife, two young kids and grandparents in a 3 bedroom suite. It was perfect. Very clean and very well equipped. the kitchen had everything you need. The pools were my 4 year old's favorite part.

We spent a week at the Grand Beach Resort and would highly recommend this place. We stayed in a 3 bedroom suite, the accommodation is beautifully furnished to a high standard, very comfortable and fully equipped with everything you need for a "home from home" experience. The two large bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and the third twin has it's own bathroom across the corridor. Each room has it's own flat screen tv, there is a safe in the master bedroom. There are double doors opening onto a verandah, which is a lovely place to sit and for added comfort the verandah's have flyscreens. Only downside is an additional charge for the internet would have expected this to be free of charge in this day and age. There are two pools on site. A little shop for incidentals and a small "fitness" centre. No restaurant on site but plenty of place to eat nearby. This resort does offer reduced tickets for the Disneyland, Universal etc. However, to obtain the discounts you are required to attend a "timeshare" presentation. Be aware there is a heavy sales pitch employed and the presentation we attended lasted for 2 hours, we got through it without being drawn into a purchase and did benefit from some good discounts.....however, be aware it is a hard sell!!!

We just returned from spending two awesome weeks at Grand Beach Resort. The first week was with our son (20--he had his golden birthday on the 20th), his girlfriend and our daughter (22). We stayed in a three bedroom lockout unit so my husband and I had a complete apartment all to ourselves. It was comfortable and well equipped. The flat screen televisions were incredible and we had movie night three of the nights thanks to the inclusion of a DVD player in the room. We loved the fact that there were two pools. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking in the unit and we had taco night and hamburger night and pizza night, all very fun. The second week, my mom (88--she turned 88 while we were down there) and my two brothers joined us. We shipped the kids back. We moved to a regular three-bedroom unit and have to say that the screened porch was our most favorite thing in the apartment. The french doors opening out onto the porch were so sweet and our unit overlooked one of the fountains (Bldg. 7) so we had a pond, wildlife and a fountain as our view--plus we could see the lake as well. The staff was very helpful. We grilled out about five of the nights--everything from chicken to hamburgers to Kingfish freshly caught that day on our deep sea fishing trip with Sea Levelers out of Cocoa Beach (highly recommend them if you want to go fishing--Captain Greg and Mike were awesome). At the end of the two weeks, it was hard to leave. We wanted one more thing to send us off with even more fond memories of Orlando, so we asked the Concierge for a good recommendation for an Oyster Bar. Again, they came through with flying colors. They recommended the best oyster bar, though not waht most travelers would come across. This was truly the local oyster bar with the best oysters. Lee & Rick's Oyster Bar on Old Winter Garden Road sold the gulf oysters by the pail (3 dozen approx per pail) at the reasonable price of $18 per pail. They shuck them right in front of you and lay them right out on the bar. Very yummy. Anyway, Grand Beach was definitely my favorite place to stay in the Orlando area. We have stayed quite a few other places there over the years (six trips besides this one) and would definitely recommend it to anyone of any age.

Room Tip: Building 7 overlooking the pond

You cannot ask for better resort. Close to every entertainment sites and shopping. This resort is constantly maintained. Service adequate and fast. I was up at six every day of my stay to enjoy every moments and notice the resort was already on the go with pool and site maintenances. The rooms were self maintain but linens were left at your doorway every two to three days. No restaurants on site but if you needed to go out there were lots nearby with walmart shopping centre. Basketball, tennis, suffle board and volleyball court all on site. The suite were fantastic. I will be recommending this resort. Thank you to all the staff. Not every resort is perfect. The only fault I found is that all other places I stayed before did not charge for the Internet connection, this one did. I hope they change their policy regarding this matter. I give this resort a five star.

Room Tip: If you have a family of six or more a three bedroom suite is the one you want. If you make your own...

This is a fabulous family-oriented resort. We were 5 adults and a 3 year old. The 3-bedroom unit was spacious and well appointed. That said, we found the third bedroom with twin beds did not work well for a 6 foot+ adult. Beds were very comfortable with nice linens. We especially enjoyed the screened-in porch. There was lots to do on the resort and it was convenently located to Disney and access to other area attractions. The staff were all pleasant and attentive.

Why a 4 and not a 5? In this day charging for internet access is unconscionable. Even worse, charging on a per computer basis is just plain mean. Also, I love my hot shower in the morning and it wasn't happening here. Minor complaints in the grand scheme of things.

Room Tip: Building 5 is right beside the childrens' play area but a bit away from either of the pools.
