Stayed at numerous places in the islands and Grande Bay outshines them all. The people here are all tremendously talented and Paul must be commended for hiring such a proffesional, courteous staff. Everyone is so friendly and the entire resort is beautiful. Tastefully decorated rooms, comfortable beds, well stocked kitchens and everything you need for a beach outing is available.... More

We just got back from our third trip to St John and our second stay at Grande Bay. We stayed in a studio suite. It was so nice and had just about everything we needed. We used our outdoor electric grill as a frying pan and an oven. All you need is a little aluminum foil and some imagination! Our... More

This stunning condo complex is located in the heart of Cruz Bay. Definitely no need to rent a car-everything was within walking distance. This was especially nice when our flight/ferry got in late-we didn't have to find a cab, just simply walked over to our hotel. The hotel is RIGHT on the beach. Be advised that there is no daily...

Grande Bay Resort is in the perfect location on the island. The rooms are spacious and the amenities plentiful. Dawn, one of the managers, was so helpful and left us needing for nothing. The gym, pool and hot tub overlook the bay and every room is comfortable….especially the beds! Our balcony overlooked Cruz Bay, which provided us with plenty beautiful... More

From boating excursions to heated pools, the comfiest beds in the world to morning espressos, this resort, located on the most beautiful curve of Cruz Bay is about as close to heaven as you're going to get.

We stayed at Grande Bay for a week in one of their studio apartments. It was perfect - great location, very clean, nice pool, helpful staff, and a decent value. There is no question that we will stay here again on our next trip to St. John, which can't come soon enough!!

We stayed at the Westin in past years but always drove off property for better beaches and dining so we decided we'd try Grande Bay for the proximity to Cruz Bay. We were not disappointed. I can't honestly think of anything this place could do better? It was just perfect for us and the Cruz Bay view was a delight!... More
