My wife and I booked our 1-BR suite (4-304) through a VRBO owner (managed by St John Villa Co); you can also rent directly through Grande Bay. Great view, end unit, covered patio facing Cruz Bay. The STJ Villa Co rep met us at the Customs dock (we'd ferried in from Jost) and walked us right over to GB. The...

We rented directly from an owner on our return visit to St John to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. 10 years ago, we stayed at The Westin for our honeymoon. We LOVED St John but did not love The Westin. Grande Bay is was perfect for us. We loved St John even more this time than we did on the...

Just got back, rented a Grande Bay villa through St. John Villa Company. They offered several to chose from and we went with 5202. I highly recommend St John Villa Company. They not only provided a fantastic villa, but provided outstanding support and help. They had the answers for questions on what to do, where to go, when to go...

This resort is very clean, safe and comfortable with a great downtown cruz bay location. Not the best for young kids, but doable if need be. Pool is nice but not really a kids pool, no restaurant or bar but you can easily walk to to one.

Love Grande Bay. We have stayed there many, many times now. Always great. The location, the accommodations, the service are always fantastic. We love staying there and cannot think of staying somewhere else. Dawn always takes such great care of us.

We stayed in a 1-bedroom condo for a week over spring break. The location is absolutely perfect and I cannot imagine staying anywhere else on the island. You are right in Cruz Bay which is the ideal size beach town. Many choices for restaurants as well as souvenir shops. The condo itself at Grande Bay was just the right size...

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.

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.
