Mermaids spotted at Grande Shores!
Have you or your child been dreaming of becoming a mermaid? Now you can live out your dreams on vacation with Mermaid Adventure Swim's fun and unique classes!
 
Mermaid Adventure Swim hosts hour-long classes at our oceanfront pool on Tuesdays from 9-10am and 10-11am for $30 per person. Guests are provided with a mermaid swim tail or shark fin of their choice for the duration of the session.
 
After an introductory tail instruction, the session splashes off with an underwater obstacle course, synchronized mermaid movements and a treasure hunt. A keepsake photo will be taken so the memories can be treasured forever.
 
These classes are fun for kids and adults of any age or gender! All skill levels are welcome and arm floaties are available if needed. Visit Mermaid Adventure Swim on the pool deck just prior to the session to register for a class!
 
Property Improvements
Renovations to the Pool Bar
 
Grande Shores' Food and Beverage staff, especially our favorite mixologist John, are excited to work in our refreshed pool bar.
 
New cabinetry, paint and wall decor makes for a very happy environment for staff and guests alike. You will find the best frozen drinks along with a new offering this summer. Sno-cones, anyone? Our new sno-cones are so cold and flavorful we think kids of all ages will enjoy them on a hot day.
 
We just love improving upon our amenities and hope our guests will stop by to enjoy some cold drinks. John certainly will make his best creation for you!
 
Shoreline Café's New Look
 
Shoreline Café at Grande Shores is a popular gathering place for our families seeking a hot and hearty breakfast or a cold drink with dinner.
 
Shoreline Café has undergone renovations and has reopened with a stylish new look. We have completed our flooring project, replacing the carpeting with luxury vinyl planks. This improvement has brightened up the dining room, providing a warm atmosphere for guests to make memories, and satisfy their appetite.
 
We hope to welcome you to Shoreline on your next visit to Grande Shores.

Guest Comments

"We had an oceanfront room on the 1st floor. It was really nice to be able to walk right into the pool area. The room was nice, beds comfortable and the access to the pool and beach great. We would definitely stay here again."

"The staff was extremely friendly and helpful! The pools were super nice and clean! My room was clean and freshly painted. I loved the full size trash cans in the room, loads of towels, and plenty of paper products in the bathroom. The outdoor games were fantastic too! The outdoor grill and bar were perfect! I really feel like this hotel tries to think of everything to make a guest's time well spent and comfortable!"
