“Beautiful place in the middle of paradise!”
Reviewed December 5, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

We've just come back from two glorious weeks at Grotto Bay. The location in Salt Pond is ideal as it is halfway up/down Long Island which makes it easy to get everywhere during the day, and that shops and restaurants are only a short walk or drive away. The private beach is beautiful, and next to a warm, clear, aquamarine sea where you can kayak (included) and swim/snorkel. If you want to cook at Grotto Bay, then it is made very easy at the guest kitchen, or by using the Weber next to the beach to BBQ your fish and crab claws (which we did most days!) The rooms are nicely furnished, and there are a good selection of DVDs too in case you want an evening in.

Get a rental car as it is the only way to get round the Island. Make sure you visit Dean's Blue Hole, and have lunch or dinner at Max's Conch Bar (the central source of information on Long Island!) Long Island is pretty quiet so don't go expecting any wild evenings out, but it is perfect for relaxing and recharging while on holiday.

Am already missing those cold Kalik's, and can't wait to go back. Complete paradise - can't recommend Grotto Bay highly enough.

“Good location, beautiful beaches”
Reviewed July 5, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Being located in the center of the island makes this a great spot. Make sure that you book a day of fishing with Locksley if you fish or not! It was so much fun. Also dont miss Deans Blue Hole. Gas up the car and buy your food on Saturday night for the next day as well because everything closes on Sunday. Take the industrial strength bug repellent if you plan to utilize the outdoor kitchen or sit outdoors. Most of all, if you're not prepared to curl up in bed early each night in the air-conditioned room with a good book, go to a resort. If you like to have no schedule and explore on your own, you will love Long Island. Beautiful beaches!!!!
Most of the things you need to explore the island are available: kayaks, snorkel gear, boogie board, cooler, flashlight, beach chairs and more.

“Little Piece in Paradise”
Reviewed April 13, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

If what your looking for is a change from the hustle and bustle of life, then you have arrived in a small place where Peace and Tranquility are what you call your home away from home.

Jean is a wonderful hostess from providing simple little things from toiletries to pop, and crackers and cheese in the refrigerator. wow…. attention to detail……

Your window is open and all you hear is birds, and the waves…..

The private beach is 15 feet away from your deck………

What more can be said…… quiet , peaceful, and tranquil…

Looking for ward to coming back!!!

Jean and Kris reserved us a great welcome!
Grottobay is superb! Quiet, clean. We spent hours on the private beach glazing the sea and triumph of the sunset.
People of the island is extremely friendly and in no time you feel part of the community.
