We would definitely stay here again. The staff was fabulous. Our room was beautiful. The location is perfect for walking to dinner. It looks like all the rooms have a view. The resort has coolers and beach chairs for your use.

My new husband and I spent our honeymoon at Grande Bay Oct 13-21 in one of the studio suites. This was my husband and I's first time to St. Johns and to say we were impressed with Grande Bay does not seem adequate! The staff was so incredibly friendly and happy to help! I personally thought Grande Bay has the... More

My wife and I celebrated our 27th Anniversay in early September. I surprised her with a trip to our favorite island, the same island that we spent our honeymoon at. We first stayed at the Grande Bay in January 2013 and had the best vacation of our lives. It was a no brainer when deciding where we would stay this... More

If you have been to St. John, you know it is necessary to drive or taxi to many of the great spots around the island. Location can be really important. Grande Bay is perfectly located for an uncomplicated trip to St. John. The unit we rented was modern and well equipped, which provided an option to eat some meals, snacks,... More

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...

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
