Grotto Bay Beach Resort sits on a lush tropical estate featuring dramatic caves and acres of woodland preserves along the water's edge in Bailey's Bay. Scattered over 21 acres and sloping down toward three private beaches are 11 colorful cottages in traditional Bermudian architecture overlooking the turquoise waters dotted with small islands.

Swim on the private pink sand beach and in the fresh water pool, or languish in the outdoor Jacuzzi surrounded by gardens above the beach. Sail, snorkel, wind surf, dive ancient wrecks or explore the delicate and beautiful coral reefs. Take a boat cruise on a sunny afternoon or during a glorious sunset. Play tennis night or day, or work out in the exercise room. Grotto Bay Beach Resort is also conveniently located within five minutes of two of Bermuda's finest golf courses.

Grotto Bay Beach resort offers two fine-dining options. At The Palm Court, enjoy a relaxed and tropical atmosphere for casual dining. An island-inspired menu and an exotic beverage menu ensure your enjoyment for dinner. Or try the elegant Hibiscus Room that features traditional European cuisine with a Bermudian flavor- the perfect choice for more formal dining. If you just want to grab a drink and mingle, head to the Rum House Bar.

Spend a day at the spa and spoil yourself. With many different types of massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, and body scrubs, you can achieve ultimate relaxation at Grotto Bay Beach Resort.

Airline created a rough start that turned into a great vacation
DAVID L.
Oct 27 2018
American Airlines created some issues which caused a delayed and very stressful start to our vacation but the staff at Grotto Bay made it all good. By the time we arrived in Bermuda 8 hours late because American Airlines had no forethought to have a new crew ready after a weather delay pushed the regular crew outside the FAA work time regulations the room we wanted was not available (king bed over 2 doubles). The staff at the Grotto Bay put us in a room one step down from what we paid for but it was a king bed and moved us into our proper room with the king bed the next day. This trip was for my 50th birthday and the Grotto Bay went the extra mile in working with my wife to make the trip awesome. We will definitely be going back!

Disappointed
DENISE G.
Jun 23 2014
I was so disappointed in my stay at Grotto Bay. We were in building 8 so had a hike up the hill to get to the room. Then to go to lunch, the pool or what is referred to as the beach you had to go down several levels of steps. I was glad I had not taken my disabled mother with me as she would not have been able to walk to the room or the pool. I was also disappoint in the fact that tips are included in the all inclusive package but they have you sign a receipt at every meal that has a line for additional gratuity. There was a comedian one night and gombay dancers for five minutes another evening. That was the extent of the entertainment. I had so much more fun in Aruba

CATHIE F.

From the moment we arrived, the service was outstanding. Grotto Bay Beach Resort's staff are attentive, friendly and very knowledgable. The property is beautiful. Our room was completely refurbished with Mahogany furniture, an excellent mattress, fine linens and a bathroom finished with Travertine tile. The view from our room was amazing - gorgeous Grotto Bay. We did not purchase the all inclusive plan. Instead, we ate at both the hotel's restaurants and local restaurants. The breakfast buffet, at Grotto Bay, was large and had multiple delicious entrees. Lunch was at the poolside grill and served sandwiches/salads. Dinner was in one of the formal dining rooms. In St. George(a short bus ride from the hotel), we'd highly recommend Temptations Bakery and the CV Cafe for breakfast. In Hamilton, Flannigans and Dockside have waterfront views and excellent pub style food. To get around, we purchased 7 day passes for both the bus and ferries. We traveled the entire island by public transportation, visiting historical sites, beaches and the main cities. For $56 USD, it was very inexpensive. Bermuda is a clean, beautiful, friendly island. It definitely ranks as one of the best places that we visited.

Grotto Bay is such a wonderful place and we have stayed there many times and will continue to return there in the future. They were so accomodating to all of our needs. The facility is beautiful and located near the airport with a bus-stop out front.

My family was extremely pleased with our stay at Grotto Bay. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Bermuda. The facilities were spotless, the service and food were great, and the pool and beach were very nice. The bus and ferry pass that was included with the package came in very handy. We are already talking about going back to Grotto Bay next year. All of the staff were exceptionally friendly. We found the same friendliness and cleanliness throughout Bermuda.

We loved the location of the resort which is close to the airport. We never heard the planes. We enjoyed everything about the resort. We did the all inclusive which we would recommend. This includes 3 meals/day, all drinks, transportation ( bus or ferry) and use of the non motorized sports( kayaks and snorkeling equipment). Every staff member was friendly and accommodating. There was also a nice mix of guests.

Lovely hotel. Food was excellent and can’t fault the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Bermuda is a really interesting country - very clean and safe, we’ll definitely be going back. Visited Crystal Caves, The Dockyard, Aquarium and all good value for money. Excellent bus service too.

This trip was amazing! The Grotto was like paradise!! The views, the pool, the beach, all perfection. I swam in a cave, got a massage in the cave spa, it was otherworldly! The food wasn't anything to write home about, but it was fine. I have a gluten allergy and they were amazing about it! I was introduced to the chef, he made sure I had options. They went above and beyond! 5 stars all the way around!
