This is a delayed review of our stay at Grande Bay Resort earlier in the year. This was our fourth time to the island but our first time staying at Grande Bay. In the past we stayed in villas on various parts of the island and absolutely loved the experience of staying in Cruz Bay. You don't have to be the party people to enjoy being able to walk in to town. Pretty much every restaurant that you want to go to on the island is within a ten minute stroll from your room. Parking is horrendous in Cruz Bay so not having to worry about driving in from our villa, finding parking and then driving home allowed us to enjoy our evenings quite a bit more and have a few extra cocktails. :)
The room was fantastic with a great view of Cruz Bay, St. Thomas and some other small islands. We rented a four door Jeep Wrangler directly from the resort which was a fabulous perk. The car was a step up from what we typically get but the price below what we normally pay. Parking was provided at the resort free of charge. Being able to pick up and drop of the car right at the resort was nice and not having to deal with the other rental car companies was a plus. Colby rented us the car and was very nice, as was Emily, and all the other staff we interacted with and we hope to see them if we come stay again.
Overall this was a great experience and we are glad we gave Grande Bay a try. We look forward to coming back soon!
