Grotto Bay Beach Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The location of the resort is great. There is a bus stop at the resort. By bus, you can travel to Hamilton, the main "town" in 30 minutes or St. George in 20 minutes. From the resort itself, you can walk to the Swizzle Inn and Crystal Caves. The room was very nice, and the bed was very comfortable. They offered complementary tea time, which we enjoyed. We also enjoyed that the beach was on the bay side, so there weren't waves. The water is so calm and relaxing. We could even do some pretty good snorkeling right off the resort's beach. It's nice how close and private the beach is at the resort. Eating out in Bermuda is quite expensive, but the poolside restaurant at the resort was very affordable for lunch and the food was great. We also really enjoyed the morning coffee shop for a quick pastry and coffee (again very reasonably priced). The staff was very friendly and always helpful. ***Note there are lots of stairs to get from the main resort area down to the pool and beach, so people who struggle with stairs may not want to stay here.
great to have an all inclusive hotel , everything was very satisfactory.the food ,staff and ameneties alsothe free bus and ferry passeswould have liked some more musical entertainment in the evening.overall no complaints.also so convenient only a few minutes from the airport
We couldn't have imagined a more romantic gorgeous and fulfilled honeymoon. Not only is Bermuda a beautiful little slice of paradise with so much to see and learn but the resort was perfect for us. Great food, amazing staff "Wilfredo, Brittany, veronica, Nicole, janay, junann, alllen" and everyone else at the resort (everyone was amazing). Plenty of activities and equipment for exploring the coves, caves, and shipwreck. The views from everywhere were amazing. I highly recommend the all inclusive package as we were provided all activities, food, drink, bus, and ferry passes which was amazing.
Enjoyed a long week-end at the Grotto Bay Resort. Great spot and lovely resort. Very convenient from the airport, it has a bus stop right out front, and Oleander scooter rentals nearby. When we arrived at 1:30 PM, our room was available. The front end Manager had a bit of a story about being confused on what room we wanted so they gave us a room with 2 double beds and at this point they were sold out and had nothing else available for us. When I booked an oceanfront room with a King bed I thought it was quite clear. They had our e-mail in the reservation if they really wanted to reach out - I booked it 10 months ago so they had plenty of time to clarify. It was disappointing since my husband is 6'2" - a double bed isn't quite as roomy as a King bed for sure ! The oceanfront rooms have a nice balcony with a beautiful view. The rooms are a nice size but with a very small bathroom. The hotel room doors have glass fronts with built-in blinds. Unfortunately, they let in a lot of exterior light in even when the blind is fully shut. If you like a dark room - this can an issue. Not sure if all doors had this. The noise from other rooms might be an issue - we had quiet neighbors but you can hear the TV and even coughing in the next room. We enjoyed coffee and yogurt at the Café before heading out to enjoy the island each day. They have a self-serve cafe for a quick bite and then the main dining room for a full breakfast. We returned in the afternoon to relax by the pool or beach each afternoon. The pool and beach have a nice beach bar. We didn't make it to the afternoon tea but it looked lovely - offered from 3:30 - 4:30 each afternoon and complimentary for guest. We had dinner one night at the hotel and it was very nice and reasonably priced. On our last day, I requested a late check out at 12:30 PM instead of 11AM. They accommodated us but gave a bit of attitude. She apparently forgot to program our key because when we went to our room at the end of our stay - we were locked out of our room and had to walk back to the front desk to have our room key reprogrammed.On both requests, the front desk didn't give the service you expect in Bermuda. At an average room rate of $ 400 and all-inclusive rate of $ 125.00 per person per day on top of the room rate I would expect better service from the staff.
First time to Bermuda, our scuba club (16 of us), dodged a bullet with the weather, following the devastation in the Caribbean, so luck played it's part, but the friendly staff and fabulous food, added to the enjoyment. The scuba shop, expertly run by enthusiastic divemaster/intructors, (from Dive Bermuda - Robyn, Brendon & Alex), provided 5 days of safe and fascinating diving. The included bus passes made exploring the island, effortless.Will definitely be back!
