Grotto Bay Beach Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
My wife and I had a wonderful time at Grotto Bay! Our room looked out onto the ocean and we were greeted by beautiful views every day. The all-inclusive aspect made everything very easy. Everything that we had at each meal was delicious. Christian was an excellent host at the restaurants and always took the time to talk to us. All of the staff was friendly and courteous. If there were any downsides, it would be that there are quite a few stairs to walk up and down so someone with mobility issues may have trouble. The private beach is on the smaller side, but is well-kept and perfect for laying out. We wouldn't have picked anywhere else to stay and are definitely looking forward to a return trip!
I stayed here at the end of April and early May. The hotel was very comfortable and well maintained, and had many amenities, including a pool, an outdoor heated Jacuzzi, a private beach with chairs, umbrellas, and towels provided to hotel guests, two restaurants, and a couple of bars. I particularly enjoyed the buffet breakfast and the delightful afternoon tea that was complimentary for hotel guests.
Friends of ours had told us about this place and we finally made the trip and couldn't be happier with where we stayed. It's a nice quick trip from the airport and a beautiful setting. The staff was very welcoming and the property is very peaceful and each of the units overlooks the water so you can't go wrong no matter what building you are in. The units are not high end luxury and maybe could use a little updating but for the limited amount of time we spent in the room it was good. There was so much to do on the property, between enjoying the pool, visiting the cave for a dip (well the others in our group did the water was a bit too chilly for me!), and enjoying a massage at the spa, also in a cave, it was great! Yes, the spa is in a cave! It was quite an experience and would surely recommend it. We opted to do the "all inclusive" package which I am torn about. The breakfast buffet was great each morning (Note: the "coffee bar" set up at the bar in the morning is NOT part of the all inclusive package). Breakfast includes a full buffet with an omelet station made to order, waffles and crepes made to order as well as all the other breakfast items you could imagine and the food was good. The food at the beach/pool cafe was great for lunch and we all tried a variety of thing and enjoyed everything. The drinks were also included which may have made the "all inclusive" worth it since we enjoyed ourselves at lunch, by the pool in the afternoon and also at dinner and not having to think about a bar bill was nice. Where I am torn is dinner...they have two restaurants right next to each other and one is a little more casual than the other, the problem was the menu was "limited". There was a set menu so if went each night it was the same thing with only one special. The food was good but my other half is not the most adventurous when it comes to food and it was tough for him to find something to enjoy after the 2nd night. There was a buffet one night that was GREAT, they really had everything from sushi to a raw bar, a carving station to paella. Not to mention the desserts they had so I can't complain about the level of food just the variety if you are there for a few days. We did end up going out a couple of times which I suppose can be expected even at an all inclusive but I would have liked to have seen a little more variety with the menu. It was nice to find a place like this and it was even walking distance to a swimming hole down the street and some more caves that we were able to explore and I can't forget feeding the fish at the pagoda on the resort. All in all I would HIGHLY recommend this resort and we would surely stay here again if we go back to Bermuda.
This is an excellent place to stay in Bermuda. It is very close to the airport... only minutes away, and yet it has a very secluded and remote feeling. It has its own bay and not one but two submerged shipwrecks for you to explore while snorkeling. There's also a beautiful small Grotto to explore where they feed the fish daily. The amount of fish you can swim among while snorkeling is absolutely amazing. The food is terrific. I am still dreaming about the surf and turf cookout on the beach Thursday night. There were quiet places at the resort for those who wanted to relax, and there were social places for those who wanted more interaction. Something for everyone. The staff was helpful, kind, and courteous, to a person. The rooms were very clean and the beds were utterly magnetic. They were so comfortable we could hardly get out of bed in the morning. I am already planning my next trip back and another great experience at this resort. Bravo!
We stayed at the Grotto Bay end April. We thoroughly enjoyed it, starting with the warm welcome from the bellman and found the other members of staff from the night manager to the Portuguese gardener without exception to be friendly and helpful. The food was of good quality, well cooked and with a reasonable selection. If you intend to stay here we recommend you take out the all inclusive option as drinks can be expensive. There are no restrictions on drinks other than that wine is served by the glass rather than the bottle and champagne is excluded. We will certainly return.
