This was the second December in a row we were lucky enough to spend vacation in a unit in Grande Bay. Having vacationed on STJ for years, I think I can say that it is our favorite location. We rented a 3BD/2BA unit and shared it with another couple. The unit was clean, well appointed, and large. The kitchen was... More

The pool is amazing! Hot tub is even better! Staff has figured out that it's all about the customer. Paul, Dawn and Joe were terrific. They made... More

We spent 10 wonderful days here at Grande Bay. Rooms were well stocked with the enamaties from home. Close to walking distance from shops and restaurants. Washer and dryers included in our room. Checking out the pool today since we have been beaching it since we arrived here. Plan on staying here next year.

Dear Shirley G, Thank you for your review. I am pleased you found the room amenities and the location ideal for your vacation. It is true that there are so many beautiful beaches on St. John that many of our guests never even realize we have a pool! I look forward to meeting in person during your next stay! Sincerely,...

Grande Bay Resort provided awesome customer service! We arrived on a very rainy day and Dawn was there to meet us at ferry w/umbrellas! Accommodations were beautiful and clean. Resort is in a convenient location to restaurants and grocery stores. Can't wait to return!

This is an AWESOME did I say AWESOME spot, the views are unreal. Right next to the bars and restaurants but far enough not to hear people. We actually ended up buying a "fractional" ownership so we will be back time and time again. I and WE LOVE this place.

We stayed in a well-appointed 3 bedroom condo for 4 nights July 2015 with one other couple. The balcony views of Cruz Bay were gorgeous. The sun-set right over the water every evening while we enjoyed cocktails. The condo itself had everything we could need, a well-stocked kitchen, beach chairs and towels, even snorkel equipment!
