Hello readers....I just received an email from TripAdvisor about our favorite Island get away location and I am motivated to speak about this property since it was one of the most magnificent beach locations we ever visited. ( It was last year and we would have been back this year, but are going to Europe for anniversay and birthday celebrations with help of TripAdvisor travelers instead this year.)
There were so many travelers when we were there that chose this property last minute so hope this email is of use to travelers. Make a note....many of the resorts and restaurants close in early in September for repairs, vacations, etc. so if you want to go to a certain restaurant, make reservations by August 31st. Point Grace's last days open were September 3rd so call in advance for that.
Upon arrival at the airport, let the resort know your plane arrival time. They will pick you up with a driver. Our driver had great stories of celebrities who stayed at Point Grace, so that itself is worth a few laughs. Grace Bay Beach is one of the most magnificent soft sandy beaches you can visit. If you love to swim in clear blue warm ocean waters like we do, this place is for you. This property has two possibilities for rentals: a few two story high end apartments $$$$$ right on the beach, (which we also viewed and were spacious) and cottages around the pool (equipped with full kitchen, oven, microwave, stove, dishwasher, dishes, pots, pans, etc. It has an eat up bar, a small dining area; clothes washer and dryer in room. Big king bed (in our cottage),full shower and bathtub in room, long covered porch but open aired, large closet.
If you look at the photo that Point Grace shows above , our second floor cottage porch had that view from the porch. We could see the ocean. It was also next to the breakfast inclusive cottage. Often we would grab a few sandwich and cheese meats with bread at our breakfast buffet for a light lunch picnic later. You could also have lunch at the pool bar, or if you are at the beach, make arrangements with the beach attendant to bring you lunch with a drink. We are beach people, so spent the day in the water at the sandy beach at the end of the boardwalk connected to the pool. The beach attendants set up your chair, bring you ice in a bucket, bring you towels, and anything you need. About mid afternoon we were in the water, and our attendant was walking toward us on the beach. He slipped off his dock shoes, walked into the water with a food tray on his shoulder without breaking stride, and offered us fresh pineapple and strawberries he had just cut up. It should have been a commercial for the property it was so great !!! We had dinner at Grace's Cottage one night which was pricey but magnificent. We both had one of the specials on the menu; I had fish, husband had meat. MAKE RESERVATIONS !
The other nights we either ate a late lunch, loaded up on free appetizers at the bar, and/or then went for dinner along the beach at another location. We could have cooked in our cottage, but choose not to. A grocery store is about a 15 mintue walk away for provisions.
Point Grace has wonderful staff, very approachable and helpful. It is by way of comparison to the other resorts on the island a small, quaint, family owned property with lots of privacy, an uncrowded private and secluded beach area (not so in many other properties on that same strip of land). because they own two pieces of land on either side of their location, it affords privacy that other 5* resorts don't have. It is quiet, and although Mary (concierge no one can forget) can set up any activity for you at the main desk, don't expect the hustle and bustle of Club Med, Seven Stars or Regent Grand or Regent Palms. By was of reference, as you walk down the board walk and face the ocean, on the right side at the very end of the beach stretch a few miles down is Club Med ; Seven Stars,(large busy high rise) Regent Grand ( few story high rise ) are also in that area. On the left side of Point Grace down the beach is Regent Palms, (a 5 * once owned by the same Regent Seven Seas Cruise Ship line) and many of the other resorts. This particular area is a very very busy stretch of beach with many families, kids, couples and properties vieing for the same stretch of beach from adjoining properties so keep that in mind if you like the beach .
There are also many restaurants you can walk to from your property, so food is usually not an issue to get a meal . We stayed mostly local , ate twice at Hemingways about a 5 minute walk from Point Grace, and once at a small cafe at Seven Stars Resort. We have been to Grace BAy beach three times through the years, and would choose Point Grace over any other. Hope you travelers enjoy this piece of heaven !
