Best vacation ever!

Would recommend Thu, Sep 11, 2014
Staff was helpful and pleasantly respectful. The grounds were beautiful, our room was exceptionally clean and the view from our balcony was heavenly! Can I upload a picture? Definitely going again next year!

Entertainment hint

Rent a scooter so you can zip around and enjoy the island. Beaches are free but the best ones are alittle far so rent a scooter and you will not be disappointed.

great for young families and grandparents!

Would recommend Mon, Sep 1, 2014
The check in process only took only ten minutes, then after confirmation the bell captain whisk our bags away to our room; when we opened the door to our room my husband and I were both taken back by the view, our private balcony, and welcome package of one bottle of cold water and pretty cellophane wrapped giant chocolate chip cookies.

Entertainment hint

the surf and turf night was nice but not worth $80! We ate as much lobster we could, delicious. it rained hard for about 10 minutes where the manager and staffed rushed to get towels for the floor while musicians kept playing. The music stopped at exactly 9:29 pm just while people were starting to dance; guests started to trickle out after music stopped.

Great beach getaway

Would recommend Tue, Aug 12, 2014
The resort is located on a wonderful beach. The sand is clean and the water is calm since it is on a bay. There are no waves here. A couple of small shipwrecks (maybe pontoon boats?) are located just off the beach. Hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating. Food at the hotel restaurants is outstanding, with the fish and steaks being some of the best we've had on the island. Rooms are relatively spartan, but clean. They have nice, well kept tennis courts staffed by the very friendly resident pro who also plays on the Davis Cup team.

Attractions

Blue Hole park is located about a 1/4 mile away. It is a forest/jungle that boasts many trails to explore, secluded inland lagoons with cliffs for swimming and jumping, and caves that you can explore and swim in. We've been here in June and August. August can be rainy since it is the beginning of wet season.

Fantastic Family Getaway

Would recommend Fri, Jul 25, 2014
We traveled to the Grotto Bay on a family vacation. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. This is a great place for children because the bay/ocean was extremely calm. We didn't have to worry about a wave washing them away. The room was extremely clean and comfortable. Most rooms have an ocean view. This hotel is also great for couples. There were many couples staying as well as families. We did the all inclusive plan which is a good value. I would definitely recommend the Grotto Bay!

Honeymoon

Would recommend Thu, Jul 24, 2014
The staff was very attentive and the amenities were perfect. The pool area was very clean and the beach was picture perfect. The water was a beautiful, clear turquoise and we heartedly recommend the couples massage in the resort's grotto. The location can't be beat. The resort is minutes away from the airport. Don't forget to take a walk down the road to the Swizzle Inn and enjoy one of their signature drinks. We can't wait to return to celebrate our one year anniversary.

Shopping hint

Get a 3 day bus pass and go to St. George. The perfumes are a good value.

Very good service, many activities, but a bit loud

Would recommend Mon, Jul 21, 2014
I have stayed there twice. All of the rooms have a nice view of the aquamarine bay, are clean, and convenient to all of the activities on the hotel. The hotel's restaurant/dining is quite good, if a bit pricey (that's not a complaint - dining anywhere on Bermuda is costlier than in the US). There are a lot of amenities -- you can swim in the hotel's own cave pool, swimming pools, or the bay; you can receive massage other spa treatment in another cave (underground caves are common in Bermuda); there is a ship wreck just off of the beach where you can snorkel; the hotel can provide glass-bottom boat tours. There are not many restaurant options nearby, but the Bermuda bus system is excellent and there is a stop just outside the hotel. The biggest negative is that many of the rooms have doors to adjacent rooms. You therefore are at the mercy of your neighbors -- when they are a quiet elderly couple, you do not notice. When they are a group of college kids staying up to 2 AM drinking in their room (my latest experience), it can be quite annoying because you can hear everything and have difficulty sleeping. The doors to the outside also are rather un-insulated, so you are disturbed by most people walking by talking. Overall there is good value here, but I would make it a point in the future to get a room without the shared doors and/or as far from the central building as possible to reduce the extraneous noise.

Dining

There are only a couple of dining options within the hotel, and only 1 restaurant within walking distance. All of the meals at the hotel are nice quality, but very expensive, even if you buy an all-inclusive package. Unless you plan the spend most of your stay at the hotel and avoid most of the rest of the island, you will be eating elsewhere for many of your meals anyway. If you want to save money, go into Hamilton to the local super market (on Front Street) and buy groceries for breakfast and/or lunch. Each room has a coffee maker and refrigerator. We bought a half-pound of ground coffee, a half-gallon of milk, cereal, orange juice, bagels and cream cheese for ~ $30. That's slightly more than the price for a single person to eat a single breakfast at the buffet in the hotel.

Would recommend Mon, Jul 21, 2014
Had a blast at Grotto Bay. It is casual and comfortable with all of the charms that Bermuda has to offer. The location is ideal and only a short walk to the Swizzle Inn, moped rentals, and underground caves. I cannot wait to return!

Dining

Swizzle Inn is close by and reasonably priced.
