Our Opinion

A fantastic 5-star resort that is well-known for its outstanding and attentive guest services. Great a la carte and buffet items available. Depending on when you stay, the resort does have a tendency to be a bit quieter, making it perfect for adults and couples.

Location: Beachfront in Riviera Maya, 20 minutes from Cancun International Airport.

Amazing resort

This was our first time at the resort and i must say its simply amazing. I'm not sure how anyone could write a bad review for this place. From the moment you arrive you are treated like royalty. The hotel is beautiful and the staff attends to your every need. We spoke to several guest who had been to the resort 10 plus times and said no other resort compares. The food was amazing and it so quiet at night you feel like you are the only ones there. The waitstaff was amazing and the bartenders. We will definitely be back.

Amazing All Inclusive Stay for GF Diets!

My husband I and stayed for three nights in September 2017. We were greeted by a fantastic member of the staff named Ricardo that really started off stay off nicely! The hotel room, salt water pools, grounds, spa, and beach were beautiful! The food was incredible. I am required to eat a gluten free diet and the staff was very accommodating. The hotel provides a special dietary letter to show when dining anywhere. Chef Octavio was fantastic . He was always available to me to ensure I had gluten free meals and knew what I was able to eat from the buffets. He arranged several special meals for me like GF crepes and GF french toast at breakfast and a delicious GF lobster creme pasta at diner. He mentioned I could arrange other things like GF pizzas and GF hamburgers, too! Special thanks to Emilio at La Brisa breakfasts. He was very friendly and attentive each morning, making our stay more special. We will definitely return!

Fabulous hotel and staff. Weather could not spoil anything

I went with my husband for a week in October, this hotel is excellent, nothing really to fault. The staff go out of their way to make your stay fabulous. The hotel decor is spectacular. We had the standard junior suite overlooking the tranquility pool. so this was really quiet. The waitress at this pool was lovely. The food was good. plenty of choice, we ate in 3 of the special restaurants and the standard was very high, again the service was fantastic. The weather was rainy but was very welcome because of the heat and humidity. I cant wait to go to this fabulous hotel again.

Great All inclusive

An excellent valued all inclusive resort. There are multiple resorts within the property that range from high end to value based. All but the high end one is family friendly. The buffets are plentiful and a variety for every taste. The specialty restaurants prepare quality meals prepared to order. The bars are open from around noon.

Another fabulous trip

This was our 3rd visit to the Grand and it was just as wonderful, maybe even more so, than our previous. We have always stayed in building 74 and really enjoyed the location being close to the restaurants and bars so we were unsure how we would feel about an oceanfront room. Everyone here talks about how wonderful they are and now we get it. We absolutely loved the location. Sitting on the balcony in the mornings and evenings was lovely. It was also great to be able to quickly pop back to the room from the pool or beach. The week we were there it was, unfortunately, quite rainy. We had one complete washout day and rain on and off every day. There are covered walkways to the main building from the ocean front rooms and umbrellas in the room so it was never a problem going to the main building. We like to walk but there are golf carts to take you back and forth if you prefer. We ate in most of the restaurants except the Italian as the only time slot available was 6 which was way too early. Tony’s was great and we also enjoyed the Japanese. I would have to say our least favorite was the French and, judging from the others we spoke with, we were not alone. The service in all the restaurants and the buffet was wonderful. One of the things that sets the Grand apart from other hotels is their service. Every single person working there we came in contact with would greet us with a smile. This was a mother/daughter trip to celebrate my mother’s 80th birthday. We first came here for her 70th, then her 75th so it only made sense to come back for her 80th. A shout out to everyone working in building 71 the week of Sept 30 to October 7th. I won’t list them all because I would not want to miss anyone. They could not have been more attentive and made my mother feel like a queen. We arrived the morning of her birthday at the pool to discover that not only had they noticed where we had been sitting the last couple days but that Alex, the pool concierge, had taken it upon himself to decorate the cabana with balloons, streamers, towel cake with fresh flower and candles and the chairs all made up with towels. He went above and beyond and my mother was absolutely thrilled. We ended up with a couple of downpours that day and after every one he would rush over with dry towels, remove the wet ones and set the chairs up again. For the rest of the week every time he saw us he would be right over to get her all set up with towels and see if there is anything she might need. He is truly an amazing young man. After a great day at the pool and beach we arrived back to our room to find it all decorated and champagne on ice waiting for us. Supper at Tony’s was just as wonderful with the table decorated and everyone, staff and guests, coming over to wish her a wonderful birthday. A special thanks to everyone at the Grand who helped to make this such a memorable trip. I hope to be back again sometime soon and we will definitely be staying in an oceanfront room!
