If you have been to St. John, you know it is necessary to drive or taxi to many of the great spots around the island. Location can be really important. Grande Bay is perfectly located for an uncomplicated trip to St. John. The unit we rented was modern and well equipped, which provided an option to eat some meals, snacks,...

Great location for walking to nearby restaurants, bars and shopping. Be watchful of some pick-pocketing in the immediate area. Beautiful view of the harbor. Within minutes of several beautiful beaches. Highly recommend taking a ferry boat to Jost Van Dyke for the day. There is a restaurant / bar called the Soggy Dollar that is the most perfect beach I've...

2nd time staying at the Grande Bay and enjoyed another fantastic stay. Super convenient to everything in Cruz Bay, great amenities, clean and well maintained condo resort. Highly suggest you use VRBO or similar to book a unit so you can deal directly with an owner. Just a short way from the ferry, taxi stand, bars and restaurants, Grande Bay...

On our first trip to Saint John, we stayed at the Grande Bay on a recommendation from a local. It was the best decision ever! A beautiful room with a spectacular view of Cruz Bay, just a short walk from the scores of restaurants, bars and shops of St John. The staff was incredibly accommodating and helpful. It was simply...

My family stayed in a three bedroom condo at Grande Bay. We were pleased with everything about this condo and would definitely stay here again. Having a reserved- covered parking spot is a big plus. We were able to walk to all of the restaurants and attractions in Cruz Bay,

I can not say enough about this hotel and the staff. Everything was perfect, the room was beautiful with a breathtaking view. There were little extra touches that most places would never do, like cold water in the room, even a bottle of rum and coke in the refrig. When I called I was taking a gamble because I never...

We are so happy we chose to stay at the Grande Bay Resort this time in St John (7-101 3 bedroom Sueno del Mar, booked through VRBO #579894).
