Nice quiet hotel Aug 06, 2011
We were 8 people staying at this hotel in 2009.

The hotel is very nice. They had good facilities with heated pool and jacuzzi, a nice little beach with some small coral and a small ship wreck just outside where you could free dive down to it. The hotel is 5 minutes from the airport. Location is excellent for public transport , bus stop in front of the hotel - 20 min bus ride to Hamilton but good service, but we preferred a taxi every time.

We enjoyed visiting the natural caves within the hotel compound at no extra expenses while some other tourists may pay to visit the local cave nearby.

The hotel was pretty quiet when we where there as we were there in the off-season. Had some problems paying with my VISA card at the reception when checking out, but that's probably my banks fault.

All in all I can highly recommend this as well.

Only drawback was that I could not see any diving facilities at the hotel even though I can see others has mentioned it on their reviews.

Affordable beach resort Jul 14, 2011
Stayed at the Grotto Bay Beach Resort for 4 nights. Nice location. 5 minutes from the hotel. Scuba diving on site with own private beach. You can snorkel a wreck right off the beach and feed the fish at another location. has a pool, jacuzzi, and very small fitness center. Food was decent at the pool side bar and grill. Only complaint was the ants. Don't go in July when they have an ant problem, they were everywhere including our bathroom. Pick up buses to st. George's and Hamilton right out in front of the hotel.

A Lovely Hotel Nov 27, 2009
I like this hotel. It is close to the airport, right on a quiet bay area. It has small "condo" type of rooms. The beach is a few steps down, very quiet. There are beautiful palm trees, green grass, etc. on the property. The bus stop is right outside of the property, very convenient to get to places. There is a small cave to explore, it is close to the two big caves where you can walk to. The roosters are active, no need for an alarm clock in the morning. My profile picture was taken in the back of our condo. The hotel property looks much better in real setting than the pictures on Internet.

Beautiful Grounds - Wonderful Private Beach - Very Nice Room Sep 15, 2006
We stayed at the Grotto Bay and had a wonderful time. The room was very spacious with island-style wicker furniture, very nice tile flooring and a nice large bathroom. We faced the ocean and had a gorgeous view. The service was great. The room was a little bit of a walk from the main hotel office, but the staff kindly transferred our luggage upon arrival and departure to and from our room. At the end of every day we'd end up with sand on the floor from being at the beach, and the cleaning crew never failed to have it swept up every morning. We never ate at the hotel so no opinion there. The bus was extremely easy to take into Hamilton with a bus stop at the resort entrance. The private beach was beautiful. Never crowded. The water was crystal clear and very warm. I ordered one pina colada which was way overpriced at $9 and was very weak. That's probably my only complaint. The crystal caves on the property are really neat to see. You can actually swim in them, but the water stays very cold inside. The property grounds are very beautiful. There are hibiscus flowers everywhere you look. One fun aspect is that the property has it's own Moon Gate which is also the entrance to a large hot tub hidden in hibiscus plants and's very pretty. Be aware that there are a decent amount of steps around the property which you can see in one of my photos. Grotto Bay's location has it's pros and cons. It's so close to the airport so upon arrival, you get to settle in right away and avoid a long taxi or bus ride, but it's not close to the main city of Hamilton....about a 30 min. bus ride. Not bad as long as you get on the right bus. One night we took a bus that went a really long round-a-bout route, but that was our silly's really very easy to navigate All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Grotto Bay.
