"highly recommend this to anyone"
Beautiful setting and the food and service was top notch. I'd highly recommend this to anyone that wants to see the hotel and grounds. If you go, do yourself a favor and dress on the nicer side of casual. I would definitely do this again on my next trip to the island.

"What a beautiful experience!"
What a beautiful experience! Having never been to the grand hotel, i was extremely pleased from start to finish. Someone met us in the lobby and informed us as to what we were to expect and guided us on our way. A hotel map was presented to us for our convenience in touring the hotel. I am speechless when it comes to the buffet. An enormous variety of gourmet foods with wait staff that was beyond superb. We sat in the rockers on the front porch and then walked the grounds. Couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable experience that left so many wonderful memories.Two thumbs up!!
