I had an excellent stay at Grotto bay once again. The atmosphere is relaxed with all of the charm that the island has to offer. Located near the Swizzle Inn and moped rentals,a short ride to the airport, and to the calmest beaches on the island, Grotto Bay is the perfect place!

My husband and I stayed here from July 3rd - July 6th in Room 459 (a second floor, beach-front room). Starting with the positives, the room was nicer than expected - very clean, good size balcony, comfortable bed/air conditioning. The all-inclusive package was a great value. The food and drinks were quite good and there were added values (free bus... More

I went to the pool area to eat, the view is beautiful and the service was very good and quick. However there was a issue when I wanted to go towards the caves with a few others. By a "so called" manager who had NO name badge. On top of being her watching us while we ate lunch and harrassing... More

It sounds like you were being told that the pool... More

Our family stayed at Grotto Bay in early July and overall, we had a great experience. Most staff was very friendly and accommodating. The resort was very nice and the rooms were comfortable and clean. My only complaint is the lack of bar staff. Most of the time, there is only one bar open at a time (pool bar during... More

Dear Laurie F., Thank you very much for your comments and my apologies for the slow service at the bar. Unfortunately we did have a few bartenders out due to road accident and illness. Your comments regarding serving in order of arrival will be addressed. Glad to hear you enjoyed the rest of our resort and services. Regards, JP Martens More

We stayed 4 nights here recently. Very convenient to the airport...just a short taxi ride. The airport noises are minimal. As far as I could tell all rooms are similar excepting their location and view. We opted for a full water view and felt it was worth the premium. The room itself, as others have stated, could be updated. But... More

My family just returned from a week at the Grotto Bay Beach Resort. There were 9 of us spread across three rooms. We had a really nice time, although there could be a few improvements, as is the case with most resort stays. However, overall, we had an amazing time and are already considering a trip back in future years!... More

As others have reviewed, the location, close to the airport, but quiet. The pool area is nice, and the lunch was very good. We did not get the all inclusive because we arrived in the evening and did not want to pay for meals that we would not be eating. Since we arrived late, we decided to book a room... More
