We rented our condo thru a private owner who was exceptional! We had a wonderful time here and love the location. This was our first trip to St. John and cannot wait to return. The condo itself was so comfortable and roomy (a 1bedroom). We also looked at the Westin. While it was nice, it is a very large resort... More

Our apartment was fabulous, spacious, well kept, and well appointed with all of the creature comforts. The staff couldn't be more accommodating and helpful. They thought of everything. The only drawback is that although it is on the water, it doesn't have a beach. It is, however, a 2 minute walk to the town's shops and restaurants.

Can't miss by staying at Grande Bay Resort. Parking is a big deal in Cruz Bay, and Grande Bay provides free, covered parking with easy access to the accommodations. Great pool deck with hot tub. Convenient to downtown Crus Bay. Very nice staff. Very accommodating. We usually stay at Lavender HIll when we visit St. John. This was our first... More

We stayed at Grande Bay recently for a couple of nights, and after years of coming to St. John I have to say this place is not what it should be for an island experience. When they built these condos there were many reports of black mold throughout the building. Our room smelled like mold and it had those open... More

Dear Guest, As President of the Grande Bay Homeowners Association, I am sorry you did not have a positive experience during your stay. As you know, most of the units are owned by individual owners and several units remain under the ownership of Bay Isles, and we all work together with the goal of making sure that all of our...

My husband and I arrived at this Grande Bay studio and fell in love with it. It had everything you needed for a week’s stay on the island. Mini fridge, dishes, utensils, beach chairs, coolers, ice maker, iron, blow dryer, beach towels, and little extras like sunscreens, lotions, toothpaste, etc. The view from the balcony was great. You are high... More

I did a VRBO here last week. The design of place has a few design quirks. Anytime you leave your unit, you have to go through a garage. It's kind of like hitting a bunker on the island from the TV show Lost anytime you go outside. The pool is always in the shade during the high season. The building... More

Went to St. John to celebrate my cousin's wedding. Stayed in condo with my mom and two sisters. Great location, we could walk everywhere. Minutes from ferry dock, easy to wharfside village. Beach across the street. Business center to print my boarding pass. Would definitely stay here again. Other family members stayed here also, so made it very convenient to... More

This was my wife and my first time to the Virgin Islands and we had 20 of our friends travel for my wife's birthday. We concluded our trip at the Grande Bay and are already talking about returning. The staff was great and the facility exceeded our expectations. Would definately return.

We love the island of St. John and have been going there for years. We usually stay in another resort but decided to try out Grande Bay this time. We are so glad we did. There are so many good things to say about this resort from the location to the rooms. We stayed in a 1 bedroom on the... More
