Beautiful place....awesome people

E. Michael is awesome! Look for him in the lobby...or anywhere on the resort and he will help you to know the best places to see. The food is awesome and the all-inclusive fee is well worth it. You also get a free bus pass which makes it easy to visit the entire island. St. George's has a free walking tour each day at 10:30 that is fun and let's you learn some Bermuda history.

Comfortable hotel with lots of unexpected amenities!

We went to Grotto Bay for four nights. What we loved about this hotel was the location, the daily tea time, the two sunken ships that were explorable, the onsite spa, and the grotto! I've never stayed in one place where you could do so much without leaving the resort. If you do leave, Grotto Bay is a great central location to St. George's and the beaches there or the beaches on the south side. The rooms were also comfortable and clean. Some things that could be better - the place is on a hill, so you have to go outside to get to the main building and the path to the beach is not direct. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would go back there over any other location again.

Fantastic Getaway!

The hotel was great! Not near the city of Hamilton but in Hamilton Parish! One big difference but it was great! The public bus is the best way to go and it picks you up outside the hotel! The Grotto at the hotle was a great free sight to see!

Long weekend wasn't long enough!!

Because the flights to Bermuda arrive well before you can check in, we arrived a little too early for a room. The staff was wonderful! She suggested that we store our bags with the bellman and go up to the Swizzle Inn for lunch and perhaps check out the caves, which we did. When we got back our room was ready. Nicely furnished room, spacious and nice sized bathroom. FABULOUS VIEWS!!! Their private beach was great with beachside and poolside service. Very relaxing....Each morning there is a full breakfast buffet or continental buffet. A little pricey, but having a huge breakfast gave us energy all day and there was no need for lunch, so all in all, a great savings! Afternoon tea was free and also very nice. The consierge, was super helpful and quite knowledgeable. Really didn't want to leave when Sunday came.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you?re not renting scooters, get a bus pass for all the days (except your day of departure). It's inexpensive & takes you all over the island. The bus pass is accepted on the ferries (no additional cost) and is another great way to travel. The buses and ferries are extremely clean and timely. The drivers are very friendly and accomodating.

very family friendly

The Grotto Bay Beach Resort in Bermuda was excellent. They have a great beach with fish to see whether you snorkel or not. They have a rental place owned by another company that rented sunfish and kayaks and scuba diving and more. They had plenty of chairs at the beach with umbrellas. The food at the restaurant was good and they had a buffet outside with good music and an entertaining band to dance to. Its location is great and the bus system in Bermuda is excellent. We had a great time.

Love the Grotto

The resort is very close to the airport which is very nice!! It is a little oasis with its own beach! The restaurant was amazing! And the ambience and staff is very accommodating. Also, I did one of the spa treatments which was amazing!!!
