Reviews for Grande Bay Resort & Residence Club
We stayed in an upper unit on the third floor, studio and one bedroom together which was perfect for 5. We had wonderful views, great breezes and super quiet! We loved the location for exploring and walking to drinks, dinner and shopping! Our unit was perfectly stocked with chairs, towels, cooler, etc but also all the necessities and a binder full of menus, rentals, maps, etc. We had a great experience and will always stay here from now on! See you next summer!

My husband and I recently stayed in the Sunswept Studio at Grande Bay. It was a special occasion, so I was nervous booking, especially considering it would be our first time to Saint John. Anna, the owner, responded quickly to all my questions, making every decision very simple. Upon arrival, we were greeted at the Ferry Dock and shown to our room. It exceeded our expectations. The views were just as shown and we enjoyed them daily. The room was a perfect size for just the two of us and the bed was very comfortable. Everything was so clean and had it's place. We enjoyed the colors of the room and the dark wood furniture complimented everything. Between the owner, the staff and amazing property management, we weren't in need of anything. The studio has a hotplate, dishes, washer and dryer, nice size bathroom and we loved the courtesy of other guests who left items behind so we did the same. There is a locker assigned to you with items for the beach and if you rent a jeep, they will have it waiting for you in the garage. Honestly, we couldn't have been happier with the room, the views and the proximity to everything in Cruz Bay. We love hiking and took advantage of the trails close by. Lind Point Trail was an easy hike to Solomon and Honeymoon Beach. Wow....can't say enough about the water and the many beaches St. John has to offer. Taxi's are readily available to take you to ones that aren't as close. We enjoyed snorkeling almost daily and exploring. All of Anna's recommendations were wonderful and we truly enjoyed Uncle Joe's BBQ Ribs, their homemade punch, Margarita Phil's, and Joe's Rum Hut for lunch and dinner. The beach bar is so close and allowed us to meet people from all over and enjoy music nightly. We took a day trip by ferry to the British Virgin Islands to visit the Baths. The snorkeling there was truly amazing. If you take a taxi to Hog Heaven for lunch, you will not believe the views. It is a restaurant on the side of a mountain/hillside overlooking the entire island. The food was very good and our taxi driver made it even better. He stopped along the lookout points and gave us the history of the island. If we had it to do over again, I would stay one night there to have more time to explore. Thank you to Orville, with Blessings Taxi for making our day even better. I am thankful for those who shared their reviews of this room and I would love the chance to stay again sometime.
This is an awesome place to stay! So convenient to everything, no driving necessary unless you want to rent a jeep to drive the island. Shopping, restaurants, groceries and the ferry are all a quick walk away, no taxiis! You can hear the music from the outdoor restaurants at night which is kind of nice. I would wholeheartedly recommend this place! They were so gracious, we were never told no to anything we asked of them. From giving us directions, accommodating an emergency parking pass, letting me print boarding passes, and making suggestions to anything we asked was such a breath of fresh air! A/C works in each room independently so everyone was very comfortable. We opted to have the refrigerator stocked which was very nice, drinks were cold and ready when we got there. There were are coolers and beach towels on hand as well. We watched fireworks and ate ice cream right on our balcony, which was so enjoyable with no traffic and no stress!! We will be staying here next time for sure! Thanks guys! The Bennett family....

This was third trip to St John. Always felt safe and relaxed on this friendly island. First stayed at Grande Bay in 2012 and then in 2014 stayed in private villa at Chocolate Hole. Both were great. This time with baby decided to stay close to town because we planned on being on boat quite a bit and no driving. Thought Grande Bay was best choice. Not so. Noticed things are getting lax, no security guards, no cameras in front of Main Street. Our condo was robbed (found out later 4 condos were hit.). Went for ice cream and watched the clerk get robbed. Many poor vagrants wondering around. Never remembered seeing this before. No real police presence. Never saw a cop near the busy areas. I think a wonderful place is going down hill fast. The condo itself was quite nice, clean and well furnished. We had building 1 Room 1101 Boating - our captains were fantastic. They took great care of us. Boat was Catzilla! Captains are Joe, Katie and Ryan. Fabulous. Would highly recommend.
We stayed in VRBO #288205, the studio, for 5 nights and booked directly through the owner. We loved everything about this place! The management greeted us right at the dock and they were extremely helpful in answering any questions. The pool was never too crowded and very relaxing after a day at the beach. The unit itself was perfect for the 2 of us! It had a little kitchenette with a small fridge and toaster oven, a grill, toiletries, coffee filters, comfy bed, and amazing balcony views! (highly recommend booking on one of the upper levels for optimum views). We loved being able to walk around town and hit happy hours, and we also only rented a jeep for 1 day, so it was convenient to the taxis. Only minor complaint, and this has nothing to do with the condo or the owner, but management had our screen door wide open upon arrival, which I am sure is for effect so we could see the view upon entering. Well, we had about 10-15 mosquito friends living with us for a few days. But everyone should come prepared to St. John with DEET anyway, which we had, but we still got eaten up at night. Tip to management - keep screens closed pleased lol! We will absolutely stay here again, and I would recommend this unit and the owner Tom to anyone! He was very pleasant to work with and was quick in responding to all emails.
