Grand Lucayan Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
My friend and I stayed at the Grand Lucayan over the Christmas holidays, and we had a great time. The staff were all very friendly and extremely hospitable. Even through part of the hotel is under construction due to the recent hurricane, our relaxation at the pool and beach was not interrupted. I really enjoyed the daily Bahamian breakfast delights. I can't wait to visit again later in the year!
I really enjoyed my stay at the Grand Lucayan. The excursions were very inexpensive. There were a lot of different things to do, especially for those who love the water. The food was good, the all inclusive is a great deal, just can't wait to go back, but I will fly next time, not take one of the "free cruises" as they are horrible.
The property was great, very clean and an amazing beach. Food was ok normal all inclusive food. Service was awful, could not get a glass of water at any meal. The people servicing the food and bar areas were acting like we were not there. After the divistation from hurricane Matthew and all of the properties that are now closed down you would think they would be happy to have a job. Lastly the casino is closed due to hurricane damage.
We had a stop in Freeport on our cruise. We chose to purchase a day pass to the resort. Drinks and food were pretty pricey. The bar didn't open until 11am. The grounds, pools, and beach were spectacular. Unfortunately, it was too cold to get in the ocean or pools. The hot tub was broken too. Even though the weather didn't cooperate, this was a beautiful location. It would have been worth the money if the weather was warmer.
We chose the European Plan. We ate lunch at Waves, the pool side restaurant, and at Aroma Café, the pizza side. The food was average but the servers were attentive and nice.The pool area is very clean with plenty of chairs. The pool is kept clean, despite the number of sea gulls swimming in it and the wind blowing leaves and debris into it. We saw a guy skimming it several times a day.The towel attendant is friendly and helpful.The beach is clean and the sand very fine. You can walk about a mile down the beach, past several other resorts, which were closed due to the hurricane. We walked on the beach a couple times a day.Our room was a king bed on the 2nd floor. It seemed kind of humid and they provide a dehumidifier which is nice. The room and bathroom were clean and kept clean by the staff. The bed is a bit on the soft side and the pillows are very soft. We ended up using the decorative throw pillows because they were firmer.Our daughters had a double queen room on the first floor. Their room did not seem humid and they did not have a dehumidifier. Their room also seemed a bit smaller but they may be because of the 2 beds.The rooms have an arm chair, dresser and desk. It comes with a coffee maker, coffee, tea and bottled water which are replenished every day. It does NOT have an ice bucket but there is an ice maker located on the ground floor. You can buy a small Styrofoam cooler at one of the convenience stores in the Port Lucayan Marketplace or at the Solomons grocery a couple miles past the marketplace. There is also a liquor store in the same plaza as Solomons. They do not sell beer, wine or liquor in grocery stores. If you would like a small refrigerator in your room, call the front desk and they will bring one up.We bought snacks and drinks to keep in our room since we were not on the all inclusive plan.The employees are friendly and always greet you. Check in was rather slow and I'm not sure why. There were 3 front desk attendants and only 2 people in each line. But all lines were slow.It is a nice property and we had a relaxing time, which was our goal.
