Right on the beach!

Posted 21-Nov-2014
Stayed here for my birthday! Beds are so comfy! Decent food! Strong & yummy drinks! Hotel made for families... Not the place to go if you want to get away from kids. Only disappointment.. there was a blackout in the early hours of the morning, maybe for about 2hrs. Pretty scary. Hotel staff didn't mention it at all the next day. No apologies for inconvenience.

Absolutely wonderful

Posted 19-Nov-2014
Had a wonderful time, the staff were amazing and spoke English! Spent ten days there with twelve others in our group, all of us had such a good time. Would recommend to anyone. Also had three small kids, 6,5,4. They didn't even want you leave.

The hotel provided us with a great vacation.

Posted 18-Nov-2014
Pros: The comfort of the hotel and the great shows every evening. The food was also world class.
Cons: More live entertainment. The live music would end too early in the evening.
Location: Everything that we had planned to do was near by and the local transportation was easy to use.
It was the first time that we had stayed at this hotel and would recommend it to other family and friends. All the staff were very friendly and helpfull.

Would love to return to this top class Hotel.

Posted 16-Nov-2014
Pros: As above.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: As above.
Attended a family wedding midway through our stay at this Hotel and everything about it was done with so much attention to detail. The Hotel is set on the beautiful sands of the Carribbean and is within easy reach of local attractions. The Hotel staff went out their way to be helpful and attend to any requests that were put to them. The facilities were first class and any trips outwith the hotel were easily arranged. Food was top class with a choice of several restaurants, from local cuisine to Italian. Shops plazas and bars were close by as were restaurants if required but the all inclusive deal was money well spent. All in all a great hotel I would love to go back to.

Not as good as we expected the second time around.

Posted 15-Nov-2014
Pros: Volleyball, room, 6th floor snack bar.
Cons: Restaurant food offerings.
Location: Located walking distance to a local mall and there are a number of restaurants nearby.
This was out second stay at Gran Caribe. We loved it the first time we visited in May. This time we were offered an upgrade to the 6th floor when we arrived late at night in a rain storm. We thought we would get a better room, but the only thing extra was the 6th floor snack bar, which was open 24 hrs a day. The room was identical to the one we had in May, but was not ocean front. There were many people on that floor as visitors and they were loud and wild during the night so sleep was disturbed. Also, there was some clanging of something outside every night as the wind blew.

Great hotel with great staff, but I definitely recommend an upgrade for better room quality. Avoid their Italian restaurant... We've been to the resort 3 times, and this restaurant is never good. We typically hear the same from others as well.

Kid friendly resort??

Posted 11-Nov-2014
Whereas I felt as if the resort itself was average, not sure it ranked high on the kid friendly meter. The resort offered a kid pool and kids club, but part of kid friendly would be the food choices. The buffet that was offered at lunchtime and in the evening was not conducive to kids AT.ALL. The choices offered were definitely geared towards adults. We attempted to make reservations at 7:30 AM on two of the three nights...we were told the earliest reservation offered was 8:30 and 9:30 on night two. What kid eats dinner that late? Night three we gave up and ate off of the resort. Would not make a return visit to this resort/hotel.
