I found Sibonne here on TA and it was much appreciated. This hotel is in one of the best spots on Grace Bay. The hotel is small but that allows it to be the closest to the beach. We were litterally about 20 to 30 steps from the beach. All of the other resorts are set so far back that you don't feel like you are getting the value of being on beach front property. By the way we had room 109 which was the next best room to being in the apartments which were on the front facing the beach. We could see the Garden, the Pool and the Ocean from our little back porch. The best part about 109 is you can go out the back of your room (the sliding glass doors) and be 10 steps from the pool. Or go out the front door, walk down the beach access and you are there on the beach, 20-30 steps. It was so close that I came back to the room several times to refill our water bottles with Ice and drinks...just a GREAT location.
The hotel itself is one of the smaller ones on Grace Bay but for the value, to me it was the best. My wife and I are the types that the room just needs to be clean and that's it, no mints, no towel animals, no room service...none of that, we are there to be on the beach and to see everything. And the best part is, the room WAS clean and very nice. Had a King Size bed, coffee maker (which they gave you a pack or 2 of coffee every day for it), little fidge, iron and cable TV, soap, shampoo...alll the things you get at a typical hotel. House cleaning every day.
The ladies at the front desk were great, we checked in and the lady was brief about everything but told me what I needed to know. She gave me 2 towels for the pool and beach and said to bring those 2 back and she would give me fresh ones. They could probably work on their people skills some but they always were nice and friendly when I talked to them. The gentlemen that is at the front that helps with the bags is great too...very nice and will help you with most of your questions. Like I said...you're not going to get pampered here but that is not what we wanted so this was perfect.
Bay Bistro which is next to the pool is a GREAT!! restaurant, great food and what we did to help with the cost of food was eat muffins of fruit in the morning (got at the IGA on the way in) and then go there and have their "Snack Menu" which is from 3:00-5:30. Got an awesome cheeseburger, fries and a pickle for $9. And let me tell ya..it's no snack, it's a meal!...It had to have been a 1/2 pound burger and a plate loaded wtih fries. So just keep that in mind when you go. And then we would eat and appitizer there later that evening for late dinner or just have their awesome desert special, Coconut Cheese cake with Ice Cream and Stawberry's or Fudge Brownie with Ice Cream.
But all in all we had a GREAT experience at Sibonne and the reason we had a great time was we knew what to expect and hopefully this review will help you decide if this is where you want to go. Best place on the beach...at least to me it was.
Like I said in the review...room 109 to me would be the best out of all of them. The closet room to...
