We recently spent a week in a two bedroom unit (1 br + studio) on the first floor at Grande Bay. I specifically wanted a location that was within walking distance of Cruz Bay restaurants so the location was perfect. We rented a car to explore the island by day so it was great that Grande Bay also provided parking.... More

Let me start this by saying this property is not for everyone! There has been much ado about this property violating zoning laws and generally being an eyesore on the St John waterfront. Having said this, there are a few other properties that were started and never completed on St John. Sirenusa and Pond Bay among them. At least this... More

We rented directly through VRBO for a stay this past week. Loved the interior, at-home amenities, and location. However, be forewarned that there is new construction nextdoor that can impede your view and not look the same as pictures or youtube videos an owner has posted because their pics/videos are outdated. Our unit had a youtube video posted that had... More

We had a unit on the first floor closest to Cruz Bay. It was so incredibly convenient to walk down one flight of stairs and be at the restaurants, or at the water sports or scuba diving boat. Grounds were very well kept. Units seemed relatively new, so everything was nice quality. Covered parking also a plus. Would definitely come... More

My husband and I stayed at Grande Bay Feb 25th-March 3rd. It was our first time to visit the island of St.John and we fell in love with it! Leading up to our trip I worked directly with Colby Thompson who was utterly fantastic! He was extremely helpful with coordinating our arrival, various activities & reservations throughout the week.

Dear KBANJ, Nothing like "love at fist sight" and we are all happy that you enjoyed your first trip and anniversary here at Grande Bay Resort & Residence Club! I have passed a copy of your review along to Colby and I couldn't agree more that he is "fantastic". Same time next year? Kind regards, Paul More

I have stayed other places on St. John but I liked Grande Bay Resort the best because the room was exceptionally clean and quiet. Everything was perfectly maintained and the staff was cheerful and helpful. The front desk staff had excellent knowledge of the island from restaurants, hiking trails to secluded beaches and snorkeling areas. I enjoyed walking to the... More

Just finished a weeks stay at the Grande Bay in a three bedroom condo and it was great from start to finish. This is not a full service resort, but is very new, close to everything and well kept condo community. The staff was very helpful before we arrived and while we were there to make sure we had what...

We just returned from our 5th visit to St. John. It is our favorite spot. We rented villas in prior years so this was our first stay at the Grande Bay Resort. We have already booked for next year. The location is great. We walked to dinner every night and could walk across the street to the beach bars to... More

It is allways good to read constructive feedback from a seasoned "St. John" traveler and trust me we will take it to heart. I already have plans to retrofit the balcony seating during our off season so that next season the "balcony" experience is more enjoyable. Thank you for the positive review and I look forward to welcoming you back... More

We booked a 2 bedroom condo through the owner via VRBO. Our dealings with the owner and the property manager were excellent. We paid $3300 for a week during peak season, which was the most reasonable rate I could find for any of the 2-bedroom Grande Bay condos. I want to limit my review here to the property itself. The...
