My family and I, 11 people in all, spent 6 nights at Grotto Bay arriving on July 3rd and leaving on July 9th. The hotel staff was wonderful and we did enjoy our stay there. However, on our second night I woke up to two men in our room who were in the process or robbing us. My husband and... More

Dear Ed B., As indicated in my last conversation with you the day before yesterday the intruders have been arrested due to the hard work of the Police in combination with the efforts of our security team, management and our CCTV system. I further mentioned during our last conversation that I would be contacting you within the next couple of... More

Although I normally choose to stay at B&Bs, I thoroughly enjoyed the 5 nights that we stayed at Grotto Bay. The only negative was poor wifi, even in the main building. Grotto Bay is at one end of the island, very near the airport but there is no airport noise and, despite the east end location, it is extremely convenient... More

I'm not sure how anyone could really give this hotel a bad review. Just spent 3 nights and 2 days (over July 4th weekend) with my girlfriend and we had a fantastic time. The resort is set up in a cool, unique way, with different lodges spread out throughout the property with the main lodge being in the middle. The... More

I have traveled to 27 different countries including 3rd world countries and this was the worst. Wifi was never working, we were lied to that it would be fixed. Food was fair. Room was infested with ants. We tried to fly home early but no flights were available. Name should be changed to "gross" bay.

Our children surprised us for our wedding anniversary with a long weekend in Bermuda. We had honeymooned there but had not been back in 25 years. The Grotto Bay Resort was just right for us. We landed in Bermuda a little after 11:00 in the morning and by 12:00 had checked in and were sitting at the beach with drinks... More

As I am sitting at this computer, ready to write my review, I am reading a review titled "Didn't stay the night". I must have stayed at a different hotel! My husband and I arrived on a Thursday. We had an all inclusive package and chose an oceanfront room. Our all inclusive allowed us two passes for unlimited bus and... More

I was a solo female traveller and it was my first time to Bermuda. I'm already planning next yrs trip. Patricia at the front desk was extremely welcoming and helpful. She even upgraded my room to room 115 which gave me a picturesque walk out view of the ocean. The pool is well maintained. The onsite cave is really cool... More

My husband and I checked in on Tuesday for the start of our honeymoon after some great reviews from TripAdvisor and pics from their website. We imagined an upscale, fun place with lots of amenities. When we arrived our $600+ ocean front room was tiny and felt like a motel room. There was a dirty cup on our balcony full... More

This was our first trip to Bermuda and we hope to return some day. Grotto Bay Beach Resort is a lovely place to stay in Bermuda. Our room with a balcony overlooking the water was comfortable and the resort staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The bus/ferry system on the island was an easy way to travel with clean...
