Cruz Bay options

Postby msfcambridge » Sun Apr 16, 2017 9:44 am

We have been back 5 days and are planning our return. :D We love the Coral Bay side and ususally make our home base at a villa there. However, we'd like to like to give Cruz Bay a try next time to be closer to more dining options within walking distance or a very quick ride. Any recommendations? It's just the two of us and we're open to Grande Bay but tend to lean toward a villa. Thanks!

If you are up for a short ride...check out Sopre Mare and Bordo Mare owned by Mike Mullen ( Mully) . Also we have stayed at a Penthouse unit in Grande Bay 1 time and loved how easy it is to walk everywhere. Also guaranteed parking in the garage area ! But know that it can be a little noisy until late in the night depending on which bar has live music.

We stayed in villas for our first four trips and enjoyed them, but our last 2 trips have been at Grand Bay. We really love being able to walk to the restaurants and shops in Cruz Bay. We were at Grand Bay three weeks ago and we love being able to hear the music from the beach bar when we were sitting on our balcony at night. We never heard a thing when we had our door closed.

We just returned recently from a stay at Grande Bay and you cannot beat the convenience factor! Being able to park in the garage and not have to deal with parking downtown made it so easy!! Grande Bay is super clean and I was impressed with our stay. Yes, you can hear the nighttime happenings at the Beach Bar, but it didn't bother us a bit (and we were in the building closest to that end). I would stay at GB again for sure!

If you are considering Grande Bay, then I would also highly suggest that you take a look at Gallows Point. Beautiful spacious individually owned/upgraded condos just a 2 minute walk up the small hill from GB. Beautiful grounds and awesome views, right on the water, and with surprisingly good snorkeling right there. It is the only place my wife and I have stayed (6X in the past 7 years). I recommend the upper ocean units, buildings 1-4 (our last 2 stays were in 4C). Take a look. The link below is their official website (not to be confused with the units that Suite St John owns/rents with a similar-looking website). Enjoy!
