Grotto Bay Beach Resort Bermuda

Bermuda, USA

The hotel

Grotto Bay Beach is scattered over 21-acres, sloping down to the water’s edge and three beautiful private beaches. Lazy days spent by the poolside are definitely an option but there are also plenty of activities to get involved with, including tennis and water sports galore. Golf enthusiasts are also in for a treat – the resort is just five minutes from two of Bermuda’s finest championship courses. Regular public transport stopping just outside the front gate is handy if you want to go sightseeing, or hire a bike from reception and pedal your way round. Very family friendly, rooms are spacious and well equipped with children spending time in the water or in the playground. There is dining aplenty at either the Hibiscus Dining Room or the Palm Court, both serving buffet delights as well as a la carte. Afterwards, bask in warm tropical breezes on one of the terraces surrounding the Great House or head to the nightclub, spinning the latest tunes, to dance the rest of the evening away.

My husband and i went to Grotto Bay for the second time this year and it just felt like coming home. 90 minutes from hectic and dirty NYC to the most beautiful vacation spot in the world. I felt genuinely welcomed and was happy to see some familiar faces. Especially Liviu, he took care of us from the first minute. The food is very good at both Restaurants, the rooms are quaint and have everything you need. If you like a quiet, peaceful time at the beach, good dinner with amazing service and maybe a late swim in an empty pool, Grotto Bay is the place to go. It has a farm like feeling with lots of charme, cats walking around and the staff feels like family immediately. Ias i don’t like surprises and big party when I’m on vacation, this was perfect for me. As i exited the airport (very cute too) i felt the stress falling off me and 20 minutes later i was at the beach. I’m hoping to go back there again next year ☀️🌺🐈 Read less

Spent a week at the Grotto Bay Beach Resort and overall it was amazing. The ride from the airport is extremely short. Room was not ready till 15:00 but we were able to use the restaurant and go sit on the beach in the meantime. Make sure to pack a bathing suit in your carry on if you are arriving before 15:00. We had asked if possible to get a room with a view as we were celebrating our honeymoon but unfortunately we got a ground floor unit that had a hole in the shower wall with a cockroach and other bugs inside… The shower handle kept getting stuck as well and water pressure from tap was barely running. After bringing this up to service desk we ended up changing rooms, unfortunately they were booked solid so we had to change from a king to two doubles but a better view. No complaints about this room. The food is amazing, not a single complaint, nothing we ate was bland, I made an effort to try all the fish dishes and it was all delicious. If you go with the all inclusive option, you will not be disappointed. Unless you spend on missing more than a meal a day off resort then it doesn’t make sense not to get it. A meal for two with an entrée, main and dessert with a drink would usually average around 160 US, x3 + drinks and you are almost spending 500-600$ a day when all inclusive cost you 228… The resort is gorgeous; the pool is fine but the beach is where you want to spend your time. The water is dead calm, the snorkeling near the gazebo is the best I’ve seen with thousands of fish, there is also a shipwreck within a minute swim from the shore that is very cool. The inflatable play structure on the water is very fun. With the all inclusive option you get free rental of all water equipment which was well worth it, the caves are also very nice, especially on a hot day. We rented an electric bicycle one day from across the road (have to call the company first as they have trailer across the road and will meet you at the resort) and toured most the north shore on trail/road. Very fun as long as you don’t mind driving on the road. We also rented an electric vehicle from down the road as well, make sure to rent a twizee and not another brand as we got stuck with a vehicle that had a regular 110-volt cable which can be problematic as most business have special plugs that are bigger. Overall, great trip, we’ve visited Cuba, Mexico, Dominican, Jamaica and Bermuda tops it all… Read less

Any and everyone is so friendly and personable. The all inclusive is well worth it too. The front office manager Jonee King went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. Dave the evening manager was a big help when we needed some assistance one night. Victor, Winston and Duane were our favorite bartenders. And Wendell the doorman was still there!!!! Can't wait to do my laundry and head back sooner than later!!!! Thanks so much again to the whole staff! Read less

When you go you’ll never want to leave. The first wonderful thing you’ll love is the customer service and second is the stunning views. Everyone is so nice and accommodating. JONEE NEEDS A RAISE! Loved every minute of it! Would definitely go back.
