Winter 2021 - Vol. 12 | Issue 1
The team at Grande Shores hopes this newsletter finds you well and enjoying the new year. In this newsletter you'll find updates on the resort's commitment to cleanliness and safety, our newest team members, and an exciting photo contest.
Continuing with our pledge to provide the safest and cleanest environment for our guests, we at Grande Shores are making sure travelers have peace of mind when booking, checking-in, and relaxing on property. We understand that when you go on vacation, you want to focus on having a great time and forgetting your worries. There’s no better place to do so, than our beautiful property here in Myrtle Beach.
Rest easy, knowing our entire staff has your safety in mind with daily tasks that ensure the highest sanitation throughout the property. We only use CDC approved materials in cleaning and you will certainly see our staff frequently wiping down surfaces, wearing masks, and helping facilitate any need you may have. We are also very proud of our guest education, where we have friendly reminders throughout our building and grounds to social distance, wear masks, and use our many hand sanitizing stations. We are all in this together and are looking forward to a terrific 2021!
When the weather is cooler, it’s a great time to make improvements and upgrades to the already beautiful Grande Shores.
This year, we have installed new carpet throughout the entire building and are making our parking garage look fantastic with new paint and power washing. When you check in, you’ll definitely notice our new LED façade lights, which really showcase and brightens up our entrance. We’re adding even more comfortable sitting areas for our guests to relax and meet.
Another terrific addition to Grande Shores will be the implementation of our new Key/Lock system. Our new RFID locks will be safer and more secure, as well as super easy.
We can’t wait to see everyone in 2021 and are excited to see your reaction to the wonderful upgrades!
