People are snooty and not nice.

Both the visitors and the staff are unfriendly. We didn't stay here and I won't stay here. We tried calling to book a massage in the cave and the receptionist was short with me, the spa was hard to reach,. We somehow managed to book a spa appointment. When we arrived we asked the reception area where to go. Again short and unfriendly. Go ask Customer Service. We find Customer Service and are told in an unfriendly manner like we are trespassing to go sit outside and wait. "Sit outside and wait." We were a little early and that was not appreciated either. It was pretty obvious they didn't want us on the property. Apparently we didn't look like money. The spa itself has a WONDERFUL staff. I hope that I can review that separately. Would have been nice to have a friendly face greet us somewhere on the premises. But if I ever return to Bermuda, I will still consider using the spa.

Best beach on the Island! Cool caves and great activities

Grotto Bay is a wonderful Bermudian experience. It has everything from the caves, a white sand beach with plenty of water sports, and an all inclusive option. The main reason I rated it a 4 out of 5 is primarily for the location, because otherwise the staff and the rooms were underwhelming. We arrived late around 10pm and the staff member at the check-in desk was not very friendly nor welcoming. We were starving and there are not many options for food at that time besides a small bar menu. The main "bar" is so small it can only fit about 4 people. It took a while to order some chicken fingers and a "Rum Swizzle," also served by an unwelcoming bartender. Another thing: the all inclusive or semi-inclusive deals were never offered to us. I only found out about it when we were asked by the servers if we had the deal. This is something you should definitely look into getting if you check in to Grotto. The food at the hotel restaurants is so expensive and just mediocre, but it is really your only option for food in the area. There was not much going on at the hotel, however I heard late one night there was a band out by the pool. Unfortunately, we had no way to know about it until we came back from a night out! They should really be more welcoming to their guests and offer a calendar of events for at least the weekend. They also should provide bottles of water for guests in the rooms. There was such a lack of fresh water anywhere! There was a small gatorade jug at the pool for the entire hotel. Your best bet is to take a walk down to the gas station next to the entrance of the resort and stock up on water, wine and snacks (there is a fridge in each room).

Another GREAT visit at Grotto Bay!

Trip #4 to Grotto Bay is in the books. Another WONDERFUL time spent at the resort. We feel like we are visiting family when on the island. And Grotto Bay treats us like family too! This is the charm of the resort. We love the food, the convenience, the beach, the entire island nation of Bermuda. It was nice to see the updated rooms and lobby and restaurants. Keeping it fresh! The menus are updated daily and the Fish Chowder is still the best on the island. Our compliments to the entire kitchen staff as all of our meals were perfect and delicious. The people there are what truly makes this trip memorable. From the moment we see Wendall, Allen, and Stevon at the front door, we know we are home. Danzella and Patricia running the front desk and welcoming all guests to the resort. Our main guy is Dawud. What a star!!! The rest of the group are as incredible as well: Liviu (Mr. 6 Pack), Captain Christian, Mathew, Veronica, Victor, Belvin, James, Raymond are the anchors of the staff. Duane and Shekara holding down the duties at the pool side bar and Charles keeping up with the crowd at the inside bar. Visiting with Connie at the store and meeting her mother was also a great pleasure. Most importantly, we met the next generation of Grotto Bay family: Shania and Jahdiah are two sweethearts and Chan is such a courteous young man. The future is in good hands. We are looking forward to our next trip to Grotto Bay. Miss you guys! See you Soon! Frank & Karen

Exceptional Customer Service!

We came here for one of my dearest friends 50th birthday. We stayed 3 nights/4 days. The hotel is on the beach and a little over a mile from the airport, great location. The rooms are very clean and a nice size but a little dated. The lobby, pool area and overall grounds are well kept. Breakfast is your typical buffet style. Lunch and dinner were excellent. The food was well prepared and tasty. If you decide to stay here, All Inclusive is the way to go. It's by far the BEST value I've EVER had at an all-inclusive resort. A bus pass is INCLUDED in the all-inclusive deal and you can use it for bus transportation and ferry! The manager Janay, Victor, Veronica, Maliha all of the women at the front desk and the rest staff were warm, friendly and accommodating. They were the best part of our experience! I'll be back for sure!
