My boyfriend and I stayed at Grande Bay in St. John for the first leg of our vacation and we couldn't have picked a better spot! The room was clean and well maintained. The best part of the room was the balcony overlooking Cruz Bay Harbor. We enjoyed having breakfast and sipping our coffee on the balcony in the morning....

I went on a trip with my husband and another couple, we booked the one bedroom connected to the studio. This was more then enough space for 4 people. We had our own separate balconies, sitting space and large bedrooms with decent bathrooms. The view from the decks is amazing, on a clear day you can see St. Thomas. The...

What a spot! What a resort! The property is exceptional - clean, spacious, quiet and the proximity to town is an added bonus, but, what really separates Grande Bay Resort apart from any other property on the island are the people - from Paul, Dawn and John to Marvin - simply put they are honest, hard working, good people.

My wife and I just returned from a week at the Grande Bay Resort and could not be happier with our choice. The location is perfect - right in town and with a beautiful view of the bay. The room was incredible with modern accents and the staff was extremely helpful and were some of the friendliest people I have...

Dear Travelmom555, You are most welcome, and so happy the family had a great stay at the property! While a car is not necessary on the island having our onsite own Jeep Rentals has allowed us to enhance many guests vacations.

This resort is so amazing. The staff go out of their way to help. The island of St John sells itself but staying here just made it that much better. You couldn't ask for a better location! Just a short walk to the restaurants. Walk down the street or step out onto the beach right in front of the resort!

We did not rent directly from Grande Bay Resort, but that is where we ended up, which was fine. Our condo faced the harbor so we had the water view, but did not have the quiet beach experience we had hoped for, as it is across the street from the sand. The beach is really in the harbor, so not...
