My husband and I will be visiting Grace Bay for the first time in Oct. We have been to many other islands but I have always wanted to visit Grace Bay. I have narrowed the hotel choices (I think) down to Ocean Club West, The Sands or Royal West Indies. We are looking for a 1 bedroom perferrable ocean front/view with a balcony. I would like to be able to walk to an area where there is good snorkeling, restaurants like Mango Reef and Somewhere Cafe, as well as the grocery store. We probably won't rent a car. We don't need fancy just comfortable with a good vibe and great beach and beach service would be a bonus. I think The Sands is having a special where every 4th night is free. Thanks for the feedback. It is apprciated!
