Beautiful Location

Great hotel with lots of fun activities to do on the resort (paddle-boarding, boat rental, swimming in the cave). The beach is beautiful and if you want to venture out of the resort it's safe to travel and public transportation is readily available. I definitely recommend the all-inclusive package because the pricing is incredibly expensive otherwise- you will end up paying the all inclusive price anyway.

Wonderful Place to Relax

Grotto Bay is ideally located, close to the airport and within short bus distance from anywhere in Bermuda. The property is beautiful, the service is friendly and efficient. The rooms are comfortable with great views. The food is good (if expensive). The pool is lovely. We have stayed there five years in a row and plan to return again next yesr.

Try the pastry shop at the Dockyard. It's a great place for lunch. The salads and sandwiches are delicious and reasonably priced. And the desserts are wonderful, made by their Swiss pastry chef.

Worth the Money

I stayed at this hotel for Thanksgiving. It has a private beach, a pool, and a tennis courts. I was surprised to learn that the facilities were available without extra charges. The internet in our room was a bit spotty, but overall it was a great experience. Oh, and it's also very very close to the airport so it's convenient, just across the bridge. A lot of busses run through the hotel.

Our second stay....

We stayed at Grotto Bay the second time in 2 1/2 years. The only reason I am no giving it 5 Stars all around is because the Lunch served by the Pool was not as good as it could have been. Too windy, not enough variety, but still good food and the Wind, well who can beat Mother Nature. And after a very heavy rain we had ants in the room, however we told the Front desk personell and they were taken care of. We can't say enough about the staff, everyone was courteous, helpful, friendly , just like the last time. If I go back to Bermuda it will be to Grotto Bay.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Pass on the Swizzle Inn, the Swizzle was more like a fizzle. The food was overpriced , poorly presented and the place should have been cleaner on a Sunday afternoon (before the crowds). The well advertised Rum Swizzle missed ingredients and was served in a plastic pitcher rather then a tall glass. Definetively a no go.

Central Location, Pretty peaceful

If you're looking to stumble out of a bar and be close to your hotel- this isn't the place. But it's a great location if you want to explore the different parts of Bermuda. Our hotel room was clean, and the surroundings were quite. It's location for the Bus route was very easy and it's so close to the airport that it isn't an inexpensive cab ride (which was the only thing that was inexpensive about Bermuda). The location to the crystal caves was great and the Swizzle bar next door was convenient and a nice place to watch a Soccer match or get some food. I got an amazing deal on this place in April and although the weather isn't "tropical" in April it was a relaxing and really nice trip, especially with it only being a 90 minute flight from Boston!

Get the Bus pass for however many days you will be in Bermuda you will use it and you can use it on the ferries as well.
