We chose Grotto Bay Resort because it was one of the few resorts (if only) beach resort that provided an all inclusive option. It was thee best decision!!! All meals are included...which were satisfying and had plenty of options for picky palettes and those with dietary restriction. Alcohol also, excluding premium brands, but they had several "specialty" drinks that were excellent. My favs were the Cymone Surprise and the Island favorite..."The Swizzle". We took full advantage of the non-motorized water sports that are a part of the inclusive package i.e kayaks, paddleboards. We also went down the slide a few times, which is not included but no one is standing guard in the water ;-) It's a very easy resort. The beach is small but quaint. The beach attendant granted your ever wish...setting up your beach chairs, umbrellas (no charge) and he even had sunscreen! It's a small island, so you can always visit the many beautiful beaches the island offers. Yet another reason to get the all-inclusive! Bus and ferry passes are included. My honey and I would go to breakfast and hit the streets. One day we took the bus to Hamilton for shopping...the ferry to the Dockyard for sightseeing then to St. Georges to hit the beach then caught the bus back to the hotel in time for lunch and dinner. Yes, all in one day! We also hit a local spot "Gombay" on our last night...had a cool time chatting it up with the owner! It was easy and safe. Should you get a little mixed up...the bus drivers and/or residents do not hesistate to help you. Most of the staff are attentive and friendly and go out of their way to accomodate you. Victor managed the restaurant with five star class and Veronica met us each morning with a warm smile! The DJ and host at Karaoke night made it entertaining for all. Rooms are well maintained and had recent renovations. WARNING: For seniors, those with physical limitations or lazy folks: The buildings are situated on a hillside so there are plenty of steps you would need to take leading to the pool, beach and to the hotel lobby. Could be a blessing or a curse. Helped us work off those drinks and meals. Also important to note is that you have to pay a high price for wifi...$6/hour or there are other plans based on your need. However, there are free wifi spots in downtown Hamilton. We stopped at a diner in Hamilton, bought a ginger beer and were able to use the wifi to call home and check email. The piece de resistance of Grotto Bay Beach Resort are the Crystal Caves. Phenomenal!!!! They are at the resort...free of charge. Walk out of your room and take a refreshing dip in the cool waters of the cave. It's like nothing you've ever experienced and probably won't any where else on the island. All in all...a fantastical tropical treat to our senses. We will be returning with kids in tow next time.
