눉Having read a lot of review complaints, they are mostly valid but easily rectifiable to ensure a pleasant stay The Wi-Fi is certainly poor and for the first week it was very slow for general browsing even from the balcony. During the second week the modem was upgraded and this improved the speed and range. However it would cut out every 5 minutes so any streaming was not worth attempting. We got a 3G sim from Emtel and that worked really well. There are certainly small lizards in the rooms but we learnt from experience that this could be reduced by closing all windows in the evening. Ants weren't too much of a problem as we kept everything in the fridge. However if you are particularly susceptible like me, don't sleep with the balcony door open or the mosquitoes will attack you with a vengeance. This also made sense as the other guests can be loud at night and on Saturday nights we could hear the nightclubbers. However downside of the closing the balcony door is trying to sleep with the loud noise from the A/C which you must have on instead.
눇We stayed at Grand Bay Suites for 2 weeks. It is comfortable, convenient, close to beaches, restaurants, shopping and excursions and excellent value for money. It is only 3.5 star but this is mainly to not having a restaurant on-site. It is well furnished with all kitchen facilities available making it ideal for self catering. Everything you may possibly need is provided although a full length mirror would be a handy addition. The photos posted here are exactly as the place appears and we did not get any unwelcome surprises. The pool area is nice enough and not too busy. The sofa bed was comfortable enough for my 18 year old son to sleep on, but it is only suitable for one adult or two small children. We were on the second floor and it certainly is best for privacy with only two units per block on each floor. We had both units, one for us and one for the three teenage kids. The only person to come up to our floor every day was the very polite and courteous cleaning lady. There are no lifts but we had little difficulty getting our suitcases up the two flights and were helped by the hotel staff.. The TV's were 37" but had only four channels with BBC World News as the only English service. The TV's did have HDMI and VGA connections so you could easily plug in your laptop to watch your own content. We did not have anyone going through our belongings (as others have stated) and were given access to the laundry room which we used frequently over our two week stay. This was free of charge but we obviously did need to buy our own detergent. We brought our own chopping board and knife but this was not needed as a large chopping board and knife set is provided along with kettle, toaster and microwave oven. An iron was also provided but an Iron board would have been welcome. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Ram is the Hotel Manager and gave us good advice on excursions and restaurants.

눉We booked 3 suites,couple of them were not ready even though we arrived after 1400 hrs.
눇Nice hotel in a populated area of Grand Bay. Spacious apartments, nice neighbourhood with couple of beaches just 5 mins walk away. Staff was very helpful all along the way. Ram and marrie at reception made our stay trouble free. We booked activites with the hotel along with rent a car. Everything was just perfect. I will definitely stay here again.
