This hotel is tired worn out, and expensive for what it is, not to mention the additional (surprise) $12 per person per day housekeeping gratuity charge added to the bill at checkout. Our room was crawling with ants, all over the bathroom and throughout the room. The internet is free of charge, don't bother wasting your time trying to connect... More

Dear Christopher M, Really sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us since that is not our aim. Not sure when you stayed with us but am pleased to report that WiFi infrastructure has been improved recently and we have had no issues since. Regarding ants, unfortunately ants are Bermuda's biggest pest especially if it is either extremely dry... More

It's been 15 years since I was last a Grotto Bay and have been promising my partner a trip as he had never experienced the magic of Bermuda. We arrived to a waterlogged island on Monday 25th August, thanks to Tropical Storm Cristobel's handiwork. The island was experiencing its wettest August for many years and boy was it wet and... More

Had an enforced night here as a result of flight cancellation. All costs covered by Air Canada so it might seem churlish to be picky about the place. The location is good, whilst not the best views on the island. Our room was satisfactory but involved quite a few stairs to get to it. Not ideal unless reasonably agile. The... More

Great weekend getaway at Grotto Bay. So close to the airport you are on the beach in minutes! Super views from our room, great food, good drinks, good service - made for a perfect weekend. We did the all-inclusive option which I would recommend, this way you enjoy all of the food, drinks and activities you want without thinking about... More

Just spent a week with at GBR and I wholeheartedly recommend it for families. Honeymooners, not so much, unless your idea of romance is a screaming toddler needing a nap. I won't repeat what everyone else has mentioned about its location (+), cleanliness (+), friendly staff (++). But here are a few tips: We were there for 6 days/nights and... More

I visited this resort last minute because there was a good Groupon deal and my girlfriend wanted a birthday getaway. The flights were super short and cheap from NYC so we gave it a try. The plus is this hotel is literally mins from the airport , you can look out onto the airport from your room. The views from... More

The hotel is wonderful & so is the staff. My only complaint was the food by the pool was limited and boring. If we had stayed the full week, I would have gotten sick of hamburgers & hot dogs. There is no other restaurant for lunch. It rained when we got there & the hotel arranged for a drive to... More

Dear valued Guest, Although beyond my control, really sorry to read your vacation was washed out. We have had some very unusual weather. We hope to welcome you back in the near future so you may experience Bermuda's typical beautiful weather. Regarding Bayside Grill menu, in addition to a hamburger and hot dog the menu does feature numerous salads, sandwiches,... More
