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

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

Went to Grotto Bay for a quick get away from the states in April. It was a great Hotel. Very clean and the staff were very very knowledgeable on the area and what to go see. There is a bus stop in short walking distance that will take you into Hamiliton or anywhere you may like to explore. They have... More

We booked a "deal" online so didn't expect how lovely this would be. Very clean rooms, comfy beds, balconies, great waterfront views from every room, a series of small 2 and 3 story buildings all in Bermuda colors, wonderful pool, small but terrific beach with big slides etc for kids and water sports center discretely off to the side. Lobby... More

Was suggested that Grotto Bay has a great brunch, went there with friends and was given a table in the middle of the empty restaurant. Had to ask waitstaff to arrange another table with a view, and the restaurant did not fill up. The man at the podium was very loud and came over as being obnoxious. What was observed... More
