    Best family vacation ever


    We were a family of eight! Two parents, two teenage grandsons and two sets of Grandparents. I will never be able to say enough about Grotto Bay. The beautiful beach and pool. The caves to explore. The kayaks for the older people and the stand up paddle boards for the boys and their mother. We had so much fun and the people at the hotel couldn't have been nicer.

    “Amazing Resort!”


    "lots to do here such as snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, caves and cave swimming beaches and more! The ocean side rooms have amazing views, they have a handy little store in case you forgot or need anything and have good food. There's two bus stops at the edge of the property near the road as well as in walking distance to the crystal caves, an ice-cream shop and bar. The staff was very polite and wanted to help in anyway possibly. Loved staying here and would 100% stay again. This place is a definite recommendation to anyone going to Bermuda"

    Better than Disney


    Bermuda is also where Roy indulged in one of the best massages she's ever had. “At the Grotto Bay Beach Resort you walk into a cave, and there are these floating beds on top of water that you lie on to get a massage. My daughters literally asked if we were at Disneyland.”

    Short Ride from the Airport


    Well, on the final day for my visit before leaving Bermuda, we took family and friends to Sunday Brunch at the Grotto Bay Hotel. Renown for its Bermudian cuisine, we delved into the traditional feast of cod-fish and potatoes, with tomato sauce with onions, then there was the Peas & Rice, Wahoo fish, Sushi Bar, Jerk chicken , other meats, Mac & Cheese, more foods and a host of desserts . We then relaxed on their grounds. It was a nice end to our weeks vacation in Bermuda.
    Short Ride from the Airport. Great Surroundings and Bermudian Food

    The affordable perfect getaway


    Grotto bay exceeded every expectation we had. The hotel staff were all eager to help make our vacation perfect. The grounds were immaculate. The food was delicious in both the hibiscus and Palm rooms and the bartenders knew just how to get your night started right :). The hotel room was just right for the two of us. Everything was clean and organized. I would recommend this place to everyone and anyone.

    “Beautiful Resort ”


    We recently stayed at this lovely resort and think it is beautiful, accommodating and fun! All of the staff are wonderful and kind! The beach is magnificent, with lots to do - sailing, norkeling to view the fish and shipwrecks, kayaking, and many other activities. The Spa is lovely as are those who provide the services there. The rooms are quite nice, many with a beautiful ocean view. The food and beverages are exquisite. The bar and one of the restaurants is right next the pool and beach, which is great! I can't say enough about Grotto Bay and the fabulous people who work there! Thank you to all at Grotto Bay! Bermuda is spectacular!!

    Welcomed by the staff


    Just spent 5 days in Bermuda and stood at the Grotto Bay Beach Resort. Great location about a two minute ride from the airport. We arrived at the resort and immediately felt welcomed by the staff.

    “Spa - Massage in a Cave”


    "My fiancee and I had a lovely couples message in the cave at grotto bay. Friendly and attentive masseuses did a great job. The spa is beautiful with soft lighting illuminating the cave. The waiting area is beautiful and peaceful. The pool and beach at grotto bay are also beautiful areas to unwind following a message."

    “Quiet retreat”


    If you're looking for some quiet time. This is the place. This resort features all you'll need for your escape. The caves on site as well as the non motorized water activities offered leaves no major reason to leave the resort or book an excursion.

    Once in a lifetime experience


    We had the couple's cave massage at the Grotto Bay Spa, one of the best massages I've ever received. Definitely a highlight of our honeymoon! We had Vickie and Della, who were friendly and professional. We opted for the 90 minute massage, worth every single penny,... The cave is connected to the ocean like the Crystal Caves you can tour nearby, so all the stalactites drip into pristine blue water the whole time. Sublime and so peaceful! A once in a lifetime experience!

    Awesome


    This place was soooooo relaxing and the staff was extremely friendly. Can't wait to go back. The caves that are on the resort are majestic and the amenities like snorkeling and kayaking are great as well. The dining was decent and the hotel is five minutes from the airport. Also, a short bus ride from all of the major attractions the island has to offer. The rooms are beautiful as well. I can't say enough about this place.

    “A GREAT GET AWAY !”


    "The entire staff was incredibly friendly, as this is a phenomena found throughout Bermuda... The all inclusive was fantastic, offering some of the best meals I have ever eaten. The chef is a maestro. Every meal, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, TERRIFIC. They are certainly not cheap on the liquor, offering great drinks. The grounds are beautiful, and right across the road from Blue Hole Park. Wife, and I will definitely return"

    “Great Vacation!”


    I went with my family of 3 which included a college student. There was a lot to do...swim in the pool, swim in the ocean, lounge on a mat in the ocean, paddle board, snorkel, kayak! Meals were wonderful!! We did the all-inclusive and enjoyed the buffet breakfast, lunch by the pool and the dinners in the restaurants. All the staff were so friendly and helpful! They included the transportation passes (bus and ferry) and that was great!

    “Excellent spa!!!”


    "My husband and I stayed at the Grotto Bay Beach Resort for our honeymoon in July 2015 (sorry this post is late) and we still talk about how the couples massage we received at the resort was the best we had ever had! Our masseuses were amazing and so skilled at what they do. Enjoying the massages inside the cave was such a unique and special moment. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience I'm glad we were able to do. It was the perfect way to start our vacation in Bermuda!"
