Just got back from our 5 nite stay at the Grande Bay Resort. We stayed in the Penthouse in Bldg 1, and it was fantastic. View was spectacular with several outside areas. Super quiet for being right downtown. Loved having a washer and dryer in the unit. Unit was really clean and neat. My only complaint was that the pool...

Dear CeceiliaF991, I am glad you enjoyed the location and amenities our resort has to offer and I apologize for the pool deck being inaccessible while you were here. Thank you for understanding that maintenance does have to happen at certain times of the year and this was one of those times. Kind regards, Paul

We moved to GB after a not so good start to our vacation at another (misrepresented) location in Cruz Bay. We had stayed here last year and loved the property but had mixed feelings about the actual unit we stayed in (privately owned). This year we took a very last minute gamble and hit gold. The unit was absolutely perfect....

In our unit we were provided with a small igloo cooler, an insulated grocery bag, coozies, beach towels, etc in addition to the normal dishes and glassware. They even...

We just had a fantastic weekend staying in an independently owned 1 bedroom, Egret's Rest. The condo was impeccably clean and supplied with all the little fun extras that make it special... coffee, make-up remover pads, condiments, even beach coolers, chairs & noodles. Our balcony was the perfect spot to watch the ferries & people in Cruz Bay. The resort...

Stayed in a 1 bedroom unit via VRBO directly from owner. What a wonderful experience. Covered parking, with walking distance of bars, many dining options, sailing and boat tours, car rental locations, etc. Well appointed rooms including full kitchens, a pool deck overlooking the bay, and more. There is some construction going on beyond one end of the resort but...

I think it's pretty much general knowledge how beautiful St. John is, The questions are....Where to stay? Where to go? What to do?. Before I get into some tips, I just want to say that St. John lives up to it's reputation for spectacular beaches. What makes them great is not only the blue water and white sand, but that...
