How to Get There
We stayed in suite 306, which is a four-bedroom corner suite, with our two teenage kids for spring break. Grace Bay is an absolutely stunning beach with crazy blue water and there is a pool and hot tub at the property if the wind or surf is too high. There is plenty to do, for a price, on Grace Bay, including parasailing, wake boarding, tubing, or you can go low cost and just swim, kayak, or paddle board with the equipment supplied for Grandview guests free of charge.
The suite itself was way beyond what we needed, but was the same cost as a one-bedroom down the beach at the Windsong. I'm glad we chose Grandview. The location is ideal, within walking or biking distance of restaurants and shops and on the quiet end of the beach. Our property was a bit in need of updating, but still very well maintained and stocked with virtually everything you could want on a holiday. The beds were comfortable, we saw no bugs in the suite (a first for us in the Caribbean), and the balcony is enormous and lovely to sit on in the morning and at sunset (make sure to put on bug spray though!). This island has recovered very well from Irma, with great restaurants and bars thriving everywhere, but be prepared for signs of destruction all over the island, in particular the homes of the locals. It can be heartbreaking, but boosting their economy is a good way to help.
We just returned from a week's vacation at the Grandview. We are a family of 4 (kids are 13 and 12) and we all had a great trip. Location is great and the view is spectacular!! We are all talking about when we will return.
Linda and Peter have put it all back together with very few noticeable issues resulting from the hurricanes. Workers have been here every day the past couple weeks fixing up the little details on the building and grounds and making everything beautiful again. Mostly business as usual.....fantastic!
Condo looks just like the pictures. Fantastic location and has all the amenities you will need. The beach is amazing with powder sand and gorgeous water, definitely would stay at this treasure location again!
Nice small complex between larger resorts. Grounds are well maintained. Units are spacious and clean. Fitness center on site and gated access. Parking is available right outside the door and is included in unit rental. Kitchen is high end and well stocked and even had a few dry goods/staples to get you started (salt/pepper, coffee filters, detergent, dish liquid, oil). We love having a washer and dryer in order to pack lightly and avoid packing sandy clothes to head home. The pool and hot tub are the perfect and not overly crowded due to the size of the facility. Grills are located on site and the hammock is the perfect spot to watch the sun set or rise. Beach chairs are available and maintained right in front of the property. The Grandview was perfect for our family of four. It allowed us to eat breakfast and lunch in the condo and dress for a nicer dinner. The double sliding doors allowed for an amazing view of the grounds, beach and bright blue waters. The unit we rented included paddle boards, kayaks, coolers, floats and plenty of beach toys. Beach towels and basic amenities were provided, including bug spray and sunscreen. We were meet upon arrival by a very pleasant gentleman that got us settled in and made sure all our needs were met. We would definitely stay at The Grandview again.
Generic Island info:
The beach on the island is long and it is a long walk from the chairs to the waters edge. You may have a number of local venders approach you trying to sell you everything from ice cream to day tours and "rides". There are a large number of boats that go up and down the beach (parasailing, tuning, banana boat rides, etc) and there is apparently not a law regarding no-wake zones. They do have a rope that lines the shore that boats must stay outside of but it is very close. The current is strong. They also "beach" or tether a number of sailboats, and floating devices that are left along the beach for advertising and for the vendors to use as needed.
Flies and mosquitoes are ever present. I did not see any mass spraying as we have seen on other islands in the Caribbean.
Definitely consider a car since it is not located in the main business area. Driving is left hand. Taxis are available but apparently very expensive according to our unit owner- $38 for first 2 passengers and the $18 for additional. Roads are sometimes narrow and in need of repair. Roads are not well marked. There are a few grocery stores on the island. The closest grocery store is a few minutes away in business area. Several restaurants are nearby, many inside neighboring hotels.
Snorkeling is not great off shore. Apparently a day cruise is required to see much of anything. We even made an effort o go to the "highly recommended" snorkel sites and did not see much to speak of other than other irresponsible tourists with little experience or knowledge flailing in the water and standing on the coral. Yes, I'm that obnoxious person that will tell you to stay off the coral.
We are big on movies and family games so we were ok with the fact that there is not much for family entertainment on the island outside of resorts. A large number of casinos and gaming rooms are located on the island. Most bars and nighttime entertainment is contained in the larger resorts. Only saw a few Police officers our entire trip despite being on the island during a time when "a heightened police presence" was being implemented. Large groups of locals congregating on corners is very common. Beaches become deserted after sun set, even around large resorts. We did not necessarily feel comfortable being out on the beach at night. Apparently there is a problem with a large number of stray dogs and cats on the island as well. We were advised repeatedly to avoid contact with them, although we didn't find it to be a problem.
Many of the locals we encountered were very pleasant. However, a large number were extremely rude and condescending. We found this extremely odd as we have fortunately never experienced this on any other islands. Many did not interact with us verbally at all. It became almost humorous and the only thing we could compare it to was a visit to WalMart. The check out clerk at the grocery store spoke not a word to us and barely touched our food. One clerk became angry when we asked where we could find the lunch meat. We did notice if they smile
back at you or even look at you in response to a greeting you are good. If not, don't get your hopes up.
