We stayed in the one bedroom Club Condo! It was awesome! It was so very clean and stocked with everything we needed. There was even complimentary bottled waters and a bottle of Cruzan Rum & Cokes upon arrival. It was like home away from home! The bed and bedding are to die for! You are right in the middle of...

We have previously stayed at the Ritz Residences on St Thomas, but wanted to base ourselves on STJ this time around. We stayed in a well-appointed 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit with stunning views over Cruz Bay from the balcony and living room. The air conditioning worked well and is a must-have, in my opinion. The Grande Bay location can't...

Grande Bay is walking distance to the shops, restaurants, ferry, and the taxi stand. Great for small families, couples, or solo travelers. Also a convenient location if you don't want to rent a car. I recommend having your fridge stocked prior to arrival so you can kick back and relax the moment you arrive.

Dear 300kristinew, Thank you for taking the time to complete a review of our resort. I couldn't agree more that having your fridge pre-stocked is a terrific way to start "limin" as soon as possible! See you again soon I hope. Paul

Grande Bay is an interesting place. More of an apartment complex than a resort (for example, no restaurant on site), it's perfectly located in the middle of Cruz Bay. The gym and pool areas are small but well maintained and clean. We stayed in a third floor apartment with an awesome view. It was well equipped and with our family...

My husband and I spent a week at the Grande Bay Resort for our first - but not last - visit to St. John. It was the perfect launching off spot - close to restaurants, bars, shopping and even hiking to some beaches. The staff was incredible - they helped us with dinner reservations, recommended a boat trip to the...

I recently returned from a 40th birthday girls trip. We could not have made a better lodging choice than Grande Bay. It is in an ideal location. Great view. Safe area. It was a very quick walk to the dock and most restaurants and bars, so we did not have to mess with the terrible parking situation in Cruz Bay...

Had a great trip to St John! The Grand Bay was so conveniently located that walking to Cruz Bay restaurants and bars was very nice! We did rent a jeep so we could explore the island which was very nice, but probably wouldn't need it for our next vacation, because taxies are abundant and cheap. We rented a 3 bedroom...

We rented a 3 bd / 2 ba codo (VRBO) on a top floor with a great balcony and view. Although we rented directly through the owner the staff at Grande Bay treated us like the most important guests on the Island. This is a great property with a premier staff. Their recommendations for things to do, individual cabbies to...

We just returned from our first visit to St John. We rented a studio condo in Grande Bay hoping it would put us close to the heart of the action in town. The location could not have been better. It was within walking distance of the ferry to/from St Thomas (Red Hook) and several great bars, restaurants and shops. We...

We enjoyed our stay at Grande Bay very much. Our 2 bedroom condo - a combined studio and one bedroom - was furnished with very new contemporary furniture, nice quality linens and had lots of space for our family of 5 adults. It's kind of a hotel/condo hybrid so we had much more space than a hotel room but you...
