Just returned from our 4 night stay at Grotto Bay to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, our first visit to Bermuda. The vast majority of hotel personnel that we came in contact with were exceedingly nice, Making our stay the wonderful vacation we dreamed about. The property is quite nice, while the beach is no Horseshoe Bay, or Elbow Beach,... More

Location of hotel is good, Staff are wonderful, special mention for June-Ann, Victor, Feliciano and Maurice the gardener.Rooms are slightly dated but very acceptable. All food is excellent, everything freshly cooked, Chefs are very particular- my wife has a shellfish allergy (muscles, clams, scallops etc) they always offered to cook plain fish for her, just in case the sauce had...

We just got back from a lovely stay at Grotto bay for our Anniversary. Everyone there was wonderful. The grounds are beautiful and you must take a swim in the grotto cave, even though it's like ice water! We did the all-inclusive and I highly recommend it! The food was really good, with lots of options at each meal. The... More

We returned home last week from another lovely visit, our third, to Grotto Bay for a combined anniversary-birthday celebration. We were pleased to find our room was in the Hamilton Lodge, closest to the pool and beach. Our room was very comfortable and had a wonderful view. The grounds were as beautiful as we remembered with hedges of blooming Hibiscus.... More

Traveled to Grotto Bay Beach Resort with my daughter Kelley and two good friends Lisa and Lisa to celebrate my birthday. This was my third visit to Bermuda- 1978 (staying at Hamilton Princess), 2005 (staying at the Wyndom/old Sonesta) and 2015 (staying at Grotto Bay Beach) I can truly say "Third Times a Charm"!!!🍀 Stayed 5/14 to 5/19. We knew... More

Resort is convenient and reasonable. However as most of Bermuda is, the buildings are on the hillside and can get challenging for the older. Service was wonderful but limited (no room service, ice machines not on every floor, long walk for coffee). We enjoyed our stay and the pool (down a hill but service provided) was a lot of fun....

This may not be a five star resort, but the service certainly is! We could not have been treated better, from the front desk staff to Richard the groundskeeper who gave us a lift to the main lodge in a downpour! The property is beautiful, great location with sweeping views of the water. It never felt overcrowded like some resorts.... More

First time to Bermuda with my family and we were very pleased! It's off the beaten path on a more secluded side of the island which we really loved! The staff was amazing especially Jonee who fixed us up with an amazing room! All of the staff was extremely pleasant and ultra accommodating! The grounds are very pretty and the... More

When I arrived at the reception desk the staff was very friendly. My room was clean and comfortable. I had a beautiful view from my balcony. They have complementary continental breakfast at 730 am to start your day. The attractions are a bit out of the way about 15-20 minutes. I would recommend this hotel if you don't mind not... More

Good service, good food and very helpful staff. The views were lovely and the room very comfortable. The bus picked us up at the entrance and we took a 3 day pass and could go anywhere on the island. The grotto caves are very interesting.
