We have previously stayed at the Ritz Residences on St Thomas, but wanted to base ourselves on STJ this time around. We stayed in a well-appointed 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit with stunning views over Cruz Bay from the balcony and living room. The air conditioning worked well and is a must-have, in my opinion. The Grande Bay location can't... More

Grande Bay is walking distance to the shops, restaurants, ferry, and the taxi stand. Great for small families, couples, or solo travelers. Also a convenient location if you don't want to rent a car. I recommend having your fridge stocked prior to arrival so you can kick back and relax the moment you arrive.

Dear 300kristinew, Thank you for taking the time to complete a review of our resort. I couldn't agree more that having your fridge pre-stocked is a terrific way to start "limin" as soon as possible! See you again soon I hope. Paul More

Grande Bay is an interesting place. More of an apartment complex than a resort (for example, no restaurant on site), it's perfectly located in the middle of Cruz Bay. The gym and pool areas are small but well maintained and clean. We stayed in a third floor apartment with an awesome view. It was well equipped and with our family... More

My husband and I spent a week at the Grande Bay Resort for our first - but not last - visit to St. John. It was the perfect launching off spot - close to restaurants, bars, shopping and even hiking to some beaches. The staff was incredible - they helped us with dinner reservations, recommended a boat trip to the... More

I recently returned from a 40th birthday girls trip. We could not have made a better lodging choice than Grande Bay. It is in an ideal location. Great view. Safe area. It was a very quick walk to the dock and most restaurants and bars, so we did not have to mess with the terrible parking situation in Cruz Bay... More

Had a great trip to St John! The Grand Bay was so conveniently located that walking to Cruz Bay restaurants and bars was very nice! We did rent a jeep so we could explore the island which was very nice, but probably wouldn't need it for our next vacation, because taxies are abundant and cheap. We rented a 3 bedroom... More

We rented a 3 bd / 2 ba codo (VRBO) on a top floor with a great balcony and view. Although we rented directly through the owner the staff at Grande Bay treated us like the most important guests on the Island. This is a great property with a premier staff. Their recommendations for things to do, individual cabbies to... More

We just returned from our first visit to St John. We rented a studio condo in Grande Bay hoping it would put us close to the heart of the action in town. The location could not have been better. It was within walking distance of the ferry to/from St Thomas (Red Hook) and several great bars, restaurants and shops. We... More

We enjoyed our stay at Grande Bay very much. Our 2 bedroom condo - a combined studio and one bedroom - was furnished with very new contemporary furniture, nice quality linens and had lots of space for our family of 5 adults. It's kind of a hotel/condo hybrid so we had much more space than a hotel room but you... More

No vehicle needed. Walk to all shops, restaurants, some beaches, and BARS!!!!! St. John is THE place; although, if you are seeking straw markets & a carnival type atmosphere, you are in the wrong place. It is "laid back", clean, safe, and affordable (by island standards). The tempo does pick up slowly as the sun goes down, with many places... More
