I came here for dinner, the staff was nice. Had a pina colada to drink and my brother. Later ordered a Jerk Chicken pizza and and my brother ordered Slow cooked pork ribs which he stated were good. Had enough left back for breakfast this morning.

Great venue

Just spent a week here. We loved the place. Slept very well with the sound of the surf in the back ground. The food was lovely and the staff made us feel very welcome. Thanks Ryan, great time was had. Sand, sea and rum punch, oh, and work.
WIFI not the best, seemed to come and go in the room, but sitting at reception improved the situation.

Delightful Brunch location

We pulled into the Grand Bay and had breakfast/brunch here. Monique took care of us and she was excellent. The service was excellent, the food flavorful and the view exceptional. It was very laid back with the occasional beach walker going by to wherever beach goers go. Though we had a crowd of 9, it didn't phase Monique at all and we had varied menus. Coffee, eggs, bacon, omelets and the rest were all tasty.

Cold Welcome for Non Guests

We arrived at the dinghy dock from our catamaran in search of dinner at 6 pm. We were told the restaurant was closed until 7 but we could order off the snack menu. We were hungry so opted to be seated and look at the menu. There wasn't a single person in the restaurant at this time. We asked to sit out front for a view but were told that all the tables were reserved for hotel guests only and were shown to a small table in the back of the bar area. To the waitress' credit, she did talk the kitchen staff into making us a pizza (the only other option available to us at 6pm). When we finished at 7, and headed back to the dinghy dock, only two of over 30 tables were occupied by other guests. We certainly could have been seated somewhere else.... don't come here for dinner unless you are staying at the resort. I did consider this resort for the land based part of our stay. I am so glad we ended up on Bequia and at Salt Whistle Bay instead. This property has a marginal beach and unfriendly staff.
