This was a perfectly lovely few days in Cruz Bay. We had a 2-bedroom suite with was spacious, immaculate, lovely kitchen, stocked with everything you could possibly need. Top quality linens, washer/dryer and comfortable furniture. Sitting on the balcony over-looking Cruz Bay with a gentle breeze was heaven. We had no problem with elevators during our stay. St. John has...

We did not rent directly from Grande Bay Resort, but that is where we ended up, which was fine. Our condo faced the harbor so we had the water view, but did not have the quiet beach experience we had hoped for, as it is across the street from the sand. The beach is really in the harbor, so not...

The rooms are new, appliances are modern, furnishings are nice. Location to Cruz Bay is perfect. Pool is shaded a lot of the time and the hot tub is against a side wall with almost no view of the beautiful harbor right across the street. Probably why it's always deserted. Looks like the site designer dropped the ball on that...

Just got back from staying at Grand Bay Resort! This is the place to stay. Only steps away from the ferry, shops and restaurants. The studio apartment was perfect for the two of us. Our balcony overlooked Cruz Bay and we could see all the outer islands. Within a 30 minute hike along the Lind Trail just behind the National...

Having stayed all over St. John for over 25 years, we opted to try Grande Bay this time. We were met by the 'concierge' upon arrival who kindly explained how this place operates. We're very familiar with timeshares, condo & villa rentals, etc. so it was no surprise to learn that housekeeping came midweek only. They were happy to organize...

I can't speak highly enough of the Grande Bay Resort. Our trip to St. John was one of the best we've ever had, and a large part of that was thanks to our stay here. First, the service was top-notch. When we had a hard time finding the hotel (while St. John is small, it is confusing to get around...
