Great location for walking to nearby restaurants, bars and shopping. Be watchful of some pick-pocketing in the immediate area. Beautiful view of the harbor. Within minutes of several beautiful beaches. Highly recommend taking a ferry boat to Jost Van Dyke for the day. There is a restaurant / bar called the Soggy Dollar that is the most perfect beach I've... More

2nd time staying at the Grande Bay and enjoyed another fantastic stay. Super convenient to everything in Cruz Bay, great amenities, clean and well maintained condo resort. Highly suggest you use VRBO or similar to book a unit so you can deal directly with an owner. Just a short way from the ferry, taxi stand, bars and restaurants, Grande Bay... More

On our first trip to Saint John, we stayed at the Grande Bay on a recommendation from a local. It was the best decision ever! A beautiful room with a spectacular view of Cruz Bay, just a short walk from the scores of restaurants, bars and shops of St John. The staff was incredibly accommodating and helpful. It was simply...

Our spring break was saved by the staff at Grande Bay Resort. We are a family of 4 and were supposed to be on a Royal Caribbean Cruise out of San Juan and the ship was broken and we spent 2 days on the ship w/o leaving port. Had to make last second arrangements to salvage our spring break. Grande... More

My family stayed in a three bedroom condo at Grande Bay. We were pleased with everything about this condo and would definitely stay here again. Having a reserved- covered parking spot is a big plus. We were able to walk to all of the restaurants and attractions in Cruz Bay,

I can not say enough about this hotel and the staff. Everything was perfect, the room was beautiful with a breathtaking view. There were little extra touches that most places would never do, like cold water in the room, even a bottle of rum and coke in the refrig. When I called I was taking a gamble because I never... More

We are so happy we chose to stay at the Grande Bay Resort this time in St John (7-101 3 bedroom Sueno del Mar, booked through VRBO #579894). After staying at the Westin the 2 previous times, we were able to get much more of the "St John" local feel this time around. This location is perfect because you can... More

My wife and I booked our 1-BR suite (4-304) through a VRBO owner (managed by St John Villa Co); you can also rent directly through Grande Bay. Great view, end unit, covered patio facing Cruz Bay. The STJ Villa Co rep met us at the Customs dock (we'd ferried in from Jost) and walked us right over to GB. The... More

We rented directly from an owner on our return visit to St John to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. 10 years ago, we stayed at The Westin for our honeymoon. We LOVED St John but did not love The Westin. Grande Bay is was perfect for us. We loved St John even more this time than we did on the... More

Just got back, rented a Grande Bay villa through St. John Villa Company. They offered several to chose from and we went with 5202. I highly recommend St John Villa Company.
