The family suites are excellent, although in the field of 2. double bed a door is not provided for. Smokers before clearly login and room reserve. Pool is very small and the loungers old and the service in the restoration friendly but not able. The food we leave. Nevertheless drive, the pool in purchase and eat out.

Big hotel directly on the beach. Nice, spacious rooms; we had a queen size bed and a couch. Two bathrooms: one bathtub, one only shower. Clean.WiFi complimentary; breakfast we didn't have as 1) very expensive and 2) the restaurant was closed for two days, so only cold meals were offered. The chairs around the pools were all taken by 8 am. The beach is clean and the water is clear (no algae as on the Keys in this season). Guests: US, Mexico, Europe: France, Italy, German/Austrian/Swiss. Valet parking only 30 USD/day. Chaotic. For pool/beach towels a towel card is ... offered but only for adults (!!??) and the recommendation is to use one. Weird. read hotel review

    Not very friendly: the hotel as most hotels on Miami Beach offers only valet parking, 30 USD overnight. As we asked if other options are available the info was clearly wrong: public parking houses may be used up to 7 hrs (??). (Google Garage and miami Beach for more info) The second morning the coffee pads were not refilled and there were no hand towels. In the evening we called the reception to request hand towels: they said they will bring them immediately. No towels. Valet parking: one is supposed to call 15 min in advance; when down and the car also there: no vallet to and you the key; wait another 10 min, see other people waiting and getting frustrated...

    On the North beach which is not very busy; quiet. One can rent chairs and everything. Kids Club. Not many places to dine around so one should drive/take the bus either further north or south. Both not within walking distance (not nice) some 5 km. Bus stops directly in front. Bus fare 2,50 USD single trip; bus comes every 10 min.

  • Sport & Leisure

    Pool chairs all by 8 am. One soul then go the beach, where a beach umbrella and a chair cost each 10 USD. No other shade available. Nice open air pool on the 7 th floor: very few spaces and only for 21 y and older.

We are already the x-times in this hotel. What we love, is the large balcony and the huge room with 2 bathrooms at a reasonable price. The decor of the hotel is very bright carpet is almost white. Now comes the downside. Is incredibly hard. It will be in some areas are becoming visible. Finally, there is the hotel is already a few years. However, it is a top-recommendation! read hotel review

Large, modern, and clean hotel. Nice view from the balcony. Great pool areas (one in front of the beach, one on the hotel roof off to one side). Good breakfast buffet. Parking garage can be used for a fee. Public paid parking lot located about 500 meters away. Great for a short stay/intermediate stop. Ocean Drive not far away (about 15 minutes by car). Malls were unfortunately a bit further away (approximately 35 minutes by car), grocery stores and restaurants were available nearby (about 5 minutes by car). Rental car definitely a must! read hotel review

The Grand Beach hotel was one of the nicest hotels I've ever checked into! The hotel might not appear to be so large at first glance, but it has lots of rooms and sufficient parking spaces too. You feel comfortable in this hotel very quickly, because there's a beach club feel) It was all very clean and is all together in good condition. As is normal for a hotel in U.S. there are no extras such as breakfast. Wi-fi is available for free in all areas of the hotel, which is very important especially for young people these ... days.

    I could have moved into our hotel room! We had a junior suite with two bathrooms and a balcony with a fantastic view of the ocean. There was a huge queen size bed and a pull-out sofa. The air conditioning worked really well, the closets had enough room, there were two flat screen TVs, a coffee maker and a mini bar too. We didn't use the mini bar as the prices were definitely over-egged. Both bathrooms were very large and always clean.

    There were two swimming pools and two jacuzzis. Always very quiet. You didn't have to pay anything extra for the loungers at the pool, in comparison to the loungers on the beach, which we didn't actually use since the path from the pool to the beach was only about a couple of steps.

    There was only one main restaurant, Chez Gaston, but that does not matter as there are enough possibilities to eat out. There is a bar in the hotel lobby. I can only write about the breakfast since we always ate out otherwise. At breakfast, you can choose between buffet or à la carte. We only used the buffet, since it was always very good and there was plenty to choose from. There was mostly American food, at least in the morning. Good value for money.

    The service in the hotel is the best. The Americans don't speak any German, but people in Miami, especially, mostly speak Spanish. The rooms are cleaned every day. The staff is very helpful.

    The beach connects right to the Grand Beach and it's breathtaking! If you're searching for white Caribbean beaches then this is the place for you! Miami Airport is a half hour away. The hotel is right on South Beach and you really have to praise the good bus connections here! There are shopping malls everything, whether on Ocean Drive or a bit further away, but the Aventura Mall is worth a visit! All designers are represented :-)

We booked for one night and wanted to be a beautiful afternoon on the beach. After a long, tiring journey, us however told, that we our rooms only against 4:00 p. m. can relate. After this long period of waiting, our room was not very clean. For four people we had a wachlappen, two small towels (fortunately also four large-thank you dear housekeeping). We stayed in a penthouse suite on the 20. floor accommodated. About us was apparently the air-conditioner from the hotel, the the whole night long a hell organized. The room itself was large, if a little ... strange divided. The two bathrooms were a joke. The price for the room was not cheap (net US Dollar 664,00), and for this price you should have two decent bathroom expect. The master bathroom had a small sink, but compared to the sink the other 'bathroom' was huge. The 2. bathroom had a wash basin in terms of size a marble and large was the shower with a shower curtain! When we eventually got against 5:00 p. m. still to the beach arrived, were the beach towels ran out, and the beach boy wanted actually still the total price for chairs and an umbrella charging! Positive is the location of the hotel, but left and right there are other hotels. Positive was the view from the balcony, it was really spectacular-but it was from the neighboring hotel also impressive. Positive was the food at the hotel restaurant - we enjoyed fabulous food. Compliment to the kitchen chef. Also the breakfast buffet left nothing to be desired; but beware when booking: we had online the frühstückspackage booked and then missed, that this only for two people shall apply. read hotel review

We were at the end of our Miami trip for 5 days in this hotel descended, The photos of the hotel, are really like in the hotel, the rooms were very clean (we had a king ocean front suite on the 10 floor) with a magnificent view of the sea. There was on the 7 floor in addition to the pools at the bottom a large pool with 2 outdoor hot tubs, that we enjoyed every night, the view just from the 7 floor was really great. The only negative the staff was - unfriendly and unmotivated the 'young' mr ... checked us what we then just had to wait until it is' ready ' was. The staff at the bar was also rather unmotivated it was unfortunately not a single grinserer from the face. The ice cream (we have not bought) costs 7 Dollar 1 ball! So the is unfortunately really abnormally. In the area there are unfortunately anyway not really something to see, the shops and the shops are unfortunately a little bit further located. Conclusion the rooms are really a dream and also the price-performance ratio for the rooms is ok. The staff was a little friendlier, would be the an excellent hotel ☺ Maybe to see ☺ read hotel review

    The location is good, but not perfect. You can without car actually do nothing, there was no restaurant or shop in the vicinity, to the Ocean Drive about 10 minutes with the car. Bus stop was in the vicinity of the hotel. The direct beach location, however, is of course you can't beat it!

    The pool is really well laid out with two pools and a jacuzzi, there is also a quiet pool on the roof, here is i think the access from 16 unfortunately we had to at 10 o'clock early 30 minutes wait until finally a beach chair was free, that was annoying! But there were fresh towels by the pool, you could also several have.

  • Room

    The rooms were very good! You had two baths, a large main bath with bathtub and huge mirror front and a smaller with a shower and toilet. In addition then the sleeping area with a great view from the balcony and super comfortable boxspringbett, here i 1.80 size hardly my feet on the ground get so padded were the. As well, i have never had in any holiday nights sleep! Here were also many possibilities its to store your things, so much space i have at home in Germany not even. Then there was a living room with couch and two ' rooms' but are open a tv. Parallel tv look but could be difficult, because both rooms are open. There were, if i remember correctly even a german television station. But an unknown where films from the last century were :-).

    The staff did not convince us, the gentleman at the check-in was very condescending, the maids greeted us every morning, i thought that was very nice, the added around the bet (of course for the tip but there one nevertheless then what :-). The parking fees (i don't know more exactly how much $) were unbeatable compared to other hotels. So much have we never paid, made the cheap booked hotel then somehow a little worm-eaten. The gentlemen at the valet were also not particularly friendly. Check-out was a bit with my bill wrong, the lady corrected but quickly and went great with my concerns around.
