My family arrived for our first trip since Covid. We were welcomed and taken by the large beautiful property and gorgeous views. The pool and large beach areas allow for guests to enjoy the gentle waters of the north side of the island. The resort is located across the bay from the airport and the air traffic didn’t interrupt our enjoyment. Staff worked continuously to make sure guest were enjoying themselves. The housekeeping staff were efficient and helpful. The servers and especially the bartenders were engaging and added a to the trip by sharing local history and traditions. Shout out to Duane! We took advantage of the water activities, gym, AMAZING spa and yoga classes. The property has its own wet and dry cave to explore. We rented kayaks and stand up paddle boards on the property. Our 18 and 22 year olds enjoyed themselves as it was a family vacation without the night life aspect. In addition, we were able to book a sunset cruise and deep sea snorkeling trip from companies that were located and departed from the property. We did not participate in the all-inclusive option for all meals/drinks as we like to try different restaurants. We ate two delicious dinners (with gluten free options). We opted for the all inclusive breakfast (huge buffet) and had some lunches and bar food during our stay. It was convenient and inexpensive to do our our laundry on site. The bellmen helped secure taxis for the various outings and helped with luggage due to the hill with golf carts or transportation. I noticed transportation support of different abled patrons as well. Overall, I look forward to a return to the island and to a stay at Grotto Bay. It was an amazing week.

Spent three nights at Grotto Bay in July 2021. Had a great room with an ocean view - would definitely recommend that! Private beach was a nice-to-have, although we ventured out to visit some even more beautiful beaches on the island. I didn’t love being right next to the airport - if you turned your head to the right while on the beach, you see airport. Also, was about a 20 minute taxi ride to Hamilton. We didn’t opt for the all-inclusive option and were glad we did not — there are too many other fabulous restaurants in Bermuda to confine yourself to the same one for every meal. Had massages in the cave - that was a superb experience. I can see this being a perfect resort for families with young kids because you have everything right there -food, pool, beach. But for adults, I’d say overall, definitely a great place to call home base, but you’ll want to venture out to better beaches and restaurants, and everything else there is to see in Bermuda.

We had an oceanfront delux room, right on the water front with a beautiful view across the bay, the causeway and airportlooked great at night too. The hotel is intimate and has a tropical escape feel to it. There are lots of activities to do on site; sailing, kayaking, renting motor boats, scuba diving, paddle boarding. There are two spectacular underground caves, one you can have spa treatments in and the other you can swim in. We thought the beachside grill food was good and enjoyed lots of poolside cocktails. We had breakfast and ordered room service, happy with both. Highly recommend this happy, fun, great value little hotel.

I want to take a moment to say thank you to ALL staff for another wonderful stay at Grotto Bay Beach Resort July 1-6, 2021. And a bigger thank you to Manager, JP Marten. Three best friends from Delaware had an awesome time enjoying the resort to the fullest. Our ocean front superior room was comfortable and well taken care of by our meticulous housekeeper Tanya Usher. The location was perfect for us. We did take advantage of the golf cart rides and shuttles to the top of the hill and even to the Swizzle Inn for my friend’s birthday celebration. We would like to recognize several staff members who were outstanding in making our vacation fantastic. Winston at the main bar was welcoming and accommodating to our every request. Victor and Duane at the pool bar were fantastic bartenders. Our meals on the all-inclusive plan were all delicious for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Casmin and Jeff both took care of us a few times and were outstanding servers. We enjoyed the water sports when the winds calmed down and Deklin from the water sports area was knowledgeable and helpful. Kayaking and snorkeling were fun. We were able to go to see some of the gem locations on Bermuda including Horseshoe Bay Beach, Sea Glass Beach and Dockyard using taxis as well as buses and ferry’s. I was happy to share with my friends as this was my 4th time vacationing in Bermuda and the second time staying at Grotto Bay Beach Resort. We only wished we had one more day to explore. We do hope to return maybe bringing some more friends to experience one of my favorite islands. Don’t hesitate to book this resort. It’s the best hotel on the island offering an all inclusive option that is worth every penny.

This trip was beyond my expectations. My husband and I stayed at the Grotto Bay Beach Resort in 2015 and loved it. We tried to return with college friends and our daughter in 2020 and the pandemic thwarted our plans. We rebooked for July 2021 and loved every minute of our trip. It was worth the wait to get back to Bermuda. The hotel staff were amazing and the guest themselves were friendly. Last time there were business travelers and guests from Europe. This time, there were many young families, enjoying their vacations. The waitstaff in the restaurants were friendly and accommodating, including Lensley, Wilfredo, Cosmin, Shauvin, Will, Veronica and others whom I did not catch their names, We enjoyed chatting with other guests during meals and excursions. The bus trips were the best. Friendly local residents who always tried to lend a hand with navigation. It's not like SEPTA! Bermuda, we love you. Can't wait to come back again. Thank you <3
