TLDR : maybe not the fanciest in the world, but definitely the fanciest in Emily’s world.
As this is this first hotel Emily has stayed in I have been big time hyping this up.
Queueing for check in Emily turned on the charm and excitement and the receptionist allocated us what is probably the best room possible. The bedroom is huge with a view of the sea and The Grand Hotel opposite, it is potentially shabby on the inside but the view from across the street still lives up to the name and I feel gives off Grand Budapest Hotel vibes:
It cost me £70 per night but I booked around the time everyone started realising a foreign holiday would be a gamble and a ball ache this year. So I imagine it would ordinarily be cheaper.
We are directly over all the toddler fun South Beach has to offer with donkey rides and amusements, also a minute away from all the shops and McDonald’s. Although it is a very steep trek down to the beach the Victorian Tramway is still running which is fun and only £1.30 for adults with under 5s free so it is perfect for us as walking up the steps is way too much effort with Emily on my shoulders.
Although the hotel windows are a little dirty and the decorating a little shabby, with the super friendly staff and this location I couldn’t care less.
10 out of 10.
