Ok, this is going to be a long review so put on your Bermuda shorts, pour a Dark n' stormy and get comfortable. 1. Concierge desk: My relationship with Grotto bay started weeks before our arrival with emails to the Concierge desk. My husband is disabled due to brain cancer surgery and faced several challenges in Bermuda. My inquiries were...

Having stayed at Grotto Bay before it never lets me down. Relaxing on the beach, cocktails at the bar, very friendly, very knowledgable staff. As a swimmer it is a great Location. So close to the airport that you are literally on the beach in 15 min. I use it as my comforting base for business too!!!

Our first visit to Bermuda, and it has been a wonderful experience. Bermuda is a beautiful country, friendly people, stunning beaches, scenery and warm,crystal-clear sea. We stayed at Grotto Bay which is perfectly situated due to its proximity to the airport. On our day of our departure, we were still paddling in a kayak 3 1/2 hours before our plane...

Recently went to Grotto Bay with my wife for our honeymoon mid Sept 2014. The resort itself is a sprawling 10+ acre resort that sits on the hills overlooking the Castle Harbour/St. George's Harbour. It is very close to the airport but you do not even notice that the planes are taking off/landing unless you really sit and watch. The...

All inclusive ticket was the way to go! Hybiscus room for dinner, great food and service. I will skip the outdoor BBQ's next time, just average! Beautiful view of the bay from room, awesome! Groundskeeping was poor to subpar, they seemed to be behind with grass, hedges and trimming, weeds growing in the cracks everywhere. But everything considered "Will do...

I agree with the "Sandersons" review, below. We were apprehensive about the Grotto Bay for our first ever visit to Bermuda after reading some of the reviews, but went with our decision because of the all-inclusive deal, which was great value. The location was ideal for us, we prefer to be away from noisy nightlife, clubs, bars etc so this...

Just returned from Bermuda after a 2 week wonderfully relaxing yet busy vacation. We had our trip planned for some time so I regularly read the reviews and was cautiously optimistic when we arrived as there were various comments about bugs, the internet , bed quality and the topography of the Hotel. Our lodge was beach side so yes we...

Just returned from a 5 night stay at Grotto Bay, can't fault the hotel, food or staff. My only suggestion would be maybe have a few bottles of water/juice in the room fridges for the all inclusive guests.

We chose this lovely resort mostly because of location and the all-inclusive plan. Being seniors, we were delighted with all those aspects of our stay. Staff members were most helpful, the food and drink were abundant and delicious, the transportation ( especially complimentary bus & ferry passes) was very convenient. Most of all, the resort itself provided comfortable accommodations and...
