We opted for a junior sea front room (upstairs) and would definitely recommend going for the sea view for that extra privacy. Air con on the roof a...

This is a cozy place for anyone wanting to be undisturbed and just relax, good service, fantastic seafront location and plenty of food and drink. The drinks that were served were much better than any other All Inclusive places we have been to so far. Some plus for us who had the Ultra All Inclusive was that we had free...

Stayed at Grand Bay last week, what a wonderful friendly place. Great food choices, plenty of choice for everyone. Would thoroughly recommend a massage during the stay, it was amazing. Nothing is too much trouble for the hotel staff. Fantastic week away, beautiful setting right on the beach, really made to feel very welcome.
