Really did my homework using the TA forum. We do not know anyone who had ever been to St. John. Grande Bay's location was the selling point. We had a one bedroom on level 2 with a prime parking place. I began to realize that parking was a really big deal on St. John .So was the elevator for beach...

It's not often that you leave the comfort of your own home and go somewhere that has a better bed!!! Grande Bay Resort is one of the most amazing resorts I have ever stayed in. It offers amazing accommodations for my family. So clean. Feels like your own home or better. Just steps from all Cruz Bay has to offer....

Grande Bay in Cruz Bay proved to be a great location for our vacation. We were within walking distance to all the restaurants and even a small grocery store in town. There were many taxis close by to take visitors to the nearby beaches. The apartment was the perfect size for a couple. We had one bedroom and 1 1/2...

We've been coming to the Island for 22 years and this was our first time at GB. We rented from an owner & it couldn't have been easier! We were very lucky to get a good price, a great view & all the little extras - coolers, chairs, parking space, snorkel gear, etc. It was so convenient to be able...

love love loved it! Great location, an easy walk to some bars and food. Right off the Ferry Dock. Easy cab ride to Trunk Bay and other awesome places! Would go back in a heartbeat. We were nervous because it was 'across the road' from the beach but it turned out to not be an issue. the road is tiny!

My family and I stayed in a 3 bedroom condo at Grande Bay in May 2013. This was our first visit to St. John. The location is perfect, a one minute walk to the restaurants and shops of Cruz Bay.

My husband and I stayed in a studio condo for 2 nights before our villa rental became available. This is our 6th trip to St. John and I was pleasantly surprised by this resort. The location is terrific and the views of the harbor and its constant activity were entertaining...no need for the TV ;-). The staff were very helpful....

This was our fourth stay at Grande Bay and the resort itself is 5*. We rented through VRBO and our unit was just ok, but we got a good rate. We had a 1 BR unit in the lower building B202. Upon arrival the unit had a funky mildew smell that made all our clothes smell. The villa also had...
