Celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary, we wanted a beautiful place in the sun to kick back and relax for a week. The hotel was adequate, clean, and comfortable, though nothing like the pictures on the website. The bathroom was in great need of an update . Thankfully, we had a kitchenette. The website raved about the wonderful places to eat on 'restaurant row' within walking distance and were looking forward to delicious, romantic evening meals. Unfortunately for us (only two people), a meal on restaurant row would have cost us about $100.....way too expensive for our budget. Nothing on the website prepared us for such extravagant prices. We ended up finding a small market, buying food, and cooking in the room. Not exactly how we wanted to spend our vacation or our anniversary but it did save us several hundred dollars on food. Good news, the staff cleaned the kitchen the next day while we were out on the beach. Bad news, ants invaded the kitchen during the night. We were...
Steps away from the best restaurants in the Caribbean, we really enjoyed our stay in Grand Case. The rooms were clean and well maintained, but then again I really wasn't interested in the room and more in the great beaches right outside. The security was great as well making us feel safe in what happens to be uncertain times in the St. Maarten area.
This hotel was very friendly and welcoming. The beaches were small but perfect for a relaxing day. Would love to go back.
Has a nice beach, although smallish, with attentive beach attendants and great snorkling. Very nice on site restaurant and bar, but hotel's best feature is it's proximity to great dining within walking distance. Not cheap (especially if you have U.S dollars), but some of the best French and Italian food you'll ever have on an island. The hotel itself is in ok shape, flatscreen tvs in rooms and I-pod players, but bathrooms are small and if you're over 5'9' make sure you're not on the 3rd floor or you'll be hitting your head on the loft ceiling getting out of bed. Maid service was OK, but they're tight with the soap and towels, so stock up when you see them. Also, make sure you exchange your beach towels before noon, because for some reason they won't do it a minute after.
GCBC became our 'go to' place on St. Martin. Have stayed there nine times since 2000. Many of the employees remember us. Have our 'spot' on the beach. Look forward to going there every year.
This beach resort is an excellent place to get away and relax. The location is on the boulevard strip, the 'hot place' in the town of grand chase. The staff was very friendly and very helpful which made my stay even more enjoyable. The rooms were always tidy bath towels and wash rags were changed everyday...beach towels were changed at request. At Grand Chase there goal is to make u comfortable and to accomadate for any circumstances you may have. Overall i am very happy with my stay at Grand Chase Beach Resort and i hopefully plan to return.
We spent a week at the Grand Case resort and were very pleased! There is a lovely restaurant overlooking the ocean which has a nice continental breakfast every morning. The chocolate croissants were great! There are also plenty of good restaurants in town within walking distance. Lots of idyllic views and hammocks to sit back and relax. The watersports office also offered plenty of activities. I would stay again.
Front desk was very friendly and helpful in everything I asked of them. Room was clean and comfortable. The restaurant food was good and the staff was great.It is a quiet and restful place to stay. Short walk to town many fine restaurants,the food was great,Everyone we met was very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay
I stayed at Grand Case Beach Club for 5 nights with my SO, my sister and her SO, and my mother and we couldn't have had a better time. We were drawn to the french side of the island, St. Martin, because we wanted a relaxing, slower paced vacation than what the dutch side offers. The resort is beautiful. The grounds are clean and well manicured. The rooms are very clean, well maintained, and up to date. The staff are very helpful. The beaches, both the north and south stretches, are pristine and never crowded. The onsite restaurant, Sunset Cafe, consistently served great food; I would order from their specials always. They have convenient flags on the beach chairs so you can order a drink right on the water. I read some other reviews complaining how the billing for the cafe is separate from the resort. Not sure what the problem is. You simply let them know your room number and you settle the tab before you check out. Easy. While the resort is located in a nice little secluded pocket ...
Grand Case Beach Club makes for a calm, even serene, destination for families and adults alike. Missing (though not missed) is a 'meet market' atmosphere where booze and hormones intermix. One goes to the Dutch side for this, and also for neon commercialism. This, our second time at Grand Case, proved as laid back and relaxing as the first, with fine dining on the premises or a stroll away in town. (tip: Bring US cash because some restaurants accept physical dollars on a par with the Euro)
I've stayed in Grand Case before and I thought it was the best place in the Caribbean. Things have changed. Our room was in desperate need of some TLC. No one uses the pool. There was garbage in the water in front of our room. We went on an excursion to a small island -Prickly Pear ($$). The snorkleing was terrible. Everything is covered with sand and debris so not much lives there. The town of Grand Case is a disaster. The road is basically unpaved. Cars park on both sides of the narrow road. There is no sidewalk and the locals drive fast though the whole mess. We were nearly hit several times. I would have rather stayed in Orient bay or the Dutch side.
Have returned to GCBC eight times in the past 11 years. We just love ST. Martin, and this property is just the right size for us. The staff members are all long time employees, and really are very caring, attentive people. The Monday managers cocktail party is something we look forward to, and get to socialize with other guests. Many great restaurants and shops within walking distance down in Grand Case. My wife and I have nothing but praise for GCBC. Hope to continue coming back for many years to come.
Wonderful location, friendly helpful staff. Beautiful view. Food was good. Could pay more attention to cleaning details. Continually brought glasses that were not clean. Also the room floor was sandy. Only had 2 bath towels in the room, and they do not provide beach towels.
Customer service was terrible. Or lack of.
Lovely reception, quaint and quiet location, phenomenal value
Nothing! I spent $1500 for a vacation. Only to check out the next morning! This is a French hotel and where so disrespectful that I checked out the next day. They would not serve me food, it was horrible!!!!
The settings, the atmosphere, the room itself. Not a single complaint
The beach facilities are excellent. The rooms are great, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and most of the time the prices for this place are an excellent bargain compared to many other St. Martin hotels of lesser quality and location. The location is tough for those who do not have rental cars, as it is in a valley that only has one access road to it, and you would do well to get out and explore the many, many excellent restaurants nearby.
The private atmosphere of Anse Marcel.Breakfast was nice. Le Domaine lacks the services it advertises on the website.The restaurant is defunct, except for breakfast.Tepid water for bathing/showering.Staff is nice and helpful, considering the limited resources they have available.
We loved the size of our room, its proximity to the beach and at a very fair price. We arrived early and the front desk was able to check us in and bring us to our room; a huge plus for us.
