Good value,

The hotel was in a very convenient location mid way between Hamilton and St Georges. The facility was a resort with many activities right on the premises. The bus stop was right at the entrance as well as the scooter rental facility. Many of the room amenities had been recently refurbished and upgraded. The main restaurant was 5 star and not that expensive. we had a great time and really enjoyed this facility. We would definitely go back.

Beautiful Location

Grotto Beach Bay Resort was extraordinary! The setting of being in acres and acres of lush tropical foilage, flowers everywhere, birds, chickens and lizards everywhere, caves to explore on the property, a three-tiered beach with palm trees and comfortable lounge chairs and bar, the low-water area full of thousands of fish to watch, the on-site boat rental, plus the breath-taking view of the aqua water of the Bay, all made this vacation like a trip to Paradise! The rooms were comfortable and roomy with private balconies to enjoy the view.

Great value, great setting.

The Grotto Bay Resort was very close to the airport but we heard no airplane noise. It had a resort setting and was well maintained. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The breakfast buffet was extensive and had made to order omelets. The one dinner we ate there was just adequate. (We ordered a pizza and salads. The pizza was a frozen supermaket type. The salads were okay.) It takes approximately 20 minutes by bus to get to Hamilton or to St. George.

Love this Place!

The bus comes right to the hotel and makes getting around the island easy and the hotel front desk sells bus passes. The dining room was great, wonderful breakfast buffet, great cafe by the water. The beach is small but very nice. The Swizzle Inn is just down the street and Baileys Ice Cream is across the street from that. We loved the whole vacation and would love to return!

Grotto Bay Bermuda

Outstanding location and service, we even were given a bottle of champagne for our anniversary. Our stay was really enjoyable even though it rained most of the time and we haven't stayed anywhere else that we could say that.

Wonderful vacation spot

6 days and 5 night of absolute pleasure. No need to leave the property if you don't want to. Everyone was pleasant and seemed determined to make our stay enjoyable. We came off season so the poolside amenities were not open yet. Easy access on site to 2 great restaurants, spa, pool, beach, caves, busses and a short walk to an offsite restaurant, parks and more caves. Just 10 minutes from airport by taxi.

Go with a bus pass. It is good for all busses and ferries. Be sure to greet the drivers before asking a question and they will always flag you for your proper stop and offer info on where to be picked up for your return.

Relaxing vacation

A wonderful experience, convenient to the airport, bus lines, and waterfront. The staff were all friendly, accomodating, and assisted us with everything with a smile. Dining staff was excellent as well as fresh and delicious food. Room service was great, and the grounds were nice. I would stay here again and will recommend to all.
