    This isn't a fancy hotel, but for the price it delivered everything I expected. If you want upscale, pay upscale. If you want a clean, well located, friendly place to stay on the beach and have a good time, this is it. The staff was responsive and amiable. There's a bar directly on the beach, a coup;le of restaurants on site, a seafood place next door, and a souvinear shop across the street. The pool was clean with plenty of lounge chairs. It's a little loud, because the floors are tile, but that's probably what you get at most places in Florida. I recommend it.

    I liked the location, being right on the beach. The courteous, and friendly staff made our stay very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone that is wanting to just kick back and relax.

    There wasn't anything that was negative about our stay.

    Everything was as advertised. No extras. Very comfortable room and great view of the beach.

    The bathroom could be a bit bigger.

    The staff at the hotel were very friendly and accomodating, couldn't say enough about how lovely they all were. My room on the 9th floor was very clean and comfortable, large comfy bed, great view, bathroom was a good size and had good water pressure in the shower. The food at the beach bar was tasty, lots of loungers around the pool, immediate sand/beach area was well maintained, as was the lobby and common areas. Hotel was in a great location to the beach and local shops and restaurants. There were several weddings while I was there and they looked beautifully organized.

    Just a few small things - the hotel has some minor wear and tear on it in the rooms - the odd crack, tear, stain, etc in some of the fixtures...nothing a little TLC couldn't fix (but as I said the room was very clean and comfortable). Also, there are no umbrellas anywhere around the pool loungers - these would be nice and the sun just gets too hot to sit out there all day without an option for coverage. There are no loungers on the beach - you have to rent them from an independent merchant for $20/day which is unreasonable. A surf shop across the road sold chairs and umbrellas which many people bought to use on the beach.

    The staff were absolutely fantastic and the location in proximity to the beach was excellent! Often you get told hotels are beachfront but are actually behind other buildings etc. This just is not the case for the Grand Plaza!!

    It's not particularly close to any areas for a night out, however they do have a free taxi service (who operate on tip payment) to get you to places which isn't too bad and you can eat at a lot of the hotels nearby which have nice bars etc. We actually ended up moving rooms as the first room we were supplied with had a really noisy air conditioning unit and a rattling door which meant we couldn't sleep, however, we got moved rooms that same day, without hassle, all whilst engineers were coming to fix the issues we had brought up ready for the next guests. Coincidentally, our second room was bigger and had a larger balcony but the first room was still adequate.

    Right on the beach, after a busy day at Busch Gardens we checked in about 7, just in time to see the sun set. Sat outside in the beach bar till late, the food was good and we had live entertainment. The singer was very good, talked to us all, made the kids laugh and made us feel welcome. Would recommend this hotel for location and atmosphere but don't expect too much luxury in your room. Comfortable and adequate just to sleep.
