We rented a 3 bd / 2 ba codo (VRBO) on a top floor with a great balcony and view. Although we rented directly through the owner the staff at Grande Bay treated us like the most important guests on the Island. This is a great property with a premier staff. Their recommendations for things to do, individual cabbies to... More

We just returned from our first visit to St John. We rented a studio condo in Grande Bay hoping it would put us close to the heart of the action in town. The location could not have been better. It was within walking distance of the ferry to/from St Thomas (Red Hook) and several great bars, restaurants and shops. We... More

We enjoyed our stay at Grande Bay very much. Our 2 bedroom condo - a combined studio and one bedroom - was furnished with very new contemporary furniture, nice quality linens and had lots of space for our family of 5 adults. It's kind of a hotel/condo hybrid so we had much more space than a hotel room but you... More

No vehicle needed. Walk to all shops, restaurants, some beaches, and BARS!!!!! St. John is THE place; although, if you are seeking straw markets & a carnival type atmosphere, you are in the wrong place. It is "laid back", clean, safe, and affordable (by island standards). The tempo does pick up slowly as the sun goes down, with many places... More

This was the second December in a row we were lucky enough to spend vacation in a unit in Grande Bay. Having vacationed on STJ for years, I think I can say that it is our favorite location. We rented a 3BD/2BA unit and shared it with another couple. The unit was clean, well appointed, and large. The kitchen was... More

The pool is amazing! Hot tub is even better! Staff has figured out that it's all about the customer. Paul, Dawn and Joe were terrific. They made... More

We spent 10 wonderful days here at Grande Bay. Rooms were well stocked with the enamaties from home. Close to walking distance from shops and restaurants. Washer and dryers included in our room. Checking out the pool today since we have been beaching it since we arrived here. Plan on staying here next year.

Dear Shirley G, Thank you for your review. I am pleased you found the room amenities and the location ideal for your vacation. It is true that there are so many beautiful beaches on St. John that many of our guests never even realize we have a pool! I look forward to meeting in person during your next stay! Sincerely,...

Grande Bay Resort provided awesome customer service! We arrived on a very rainy day and Dawn was there to meet us at ferry w/umbrellas! Accommodations were beautiful and clean. Resort is in a convenient location to restaurants and grocery stores. Can't wait to return!
