The Tuscany on Grace Bay
What We Love
- Ideal for self-sufficient families; all condos have full kitchens, laundry rooms and enclosed balconies
- Sensational views of Grace Bay Beach and the Caribbean at sunset
- Good amenities for a condo hotel: private pool, small gym, shared tennis courts and use of cruiser bikes
What To Know
- Condos are privately owned, so expect a homey style and personal items in some units
- Location at the quiet northeast end of Grace Bay Beach means it’s a taxi ride to most restaurants and bars
- No restaurant on-site or 24-hour staff

Classically tropical, with nods to its Mediterranean name, a lounger-dotted pool is at the heart of the resort, surrounded by breezy open walkways and mustard-yellow buildings. Bursts of bougainvillea brighten the manicured lawns, aloe vera plants and stubby palm trees in the gardens, and you’ll catch come-hither glimpses of Grace Bay Beach between the two accommodation buildings.
Bed and Bath
Housed in two mirror-image five-story towers, all 30 suites have full kitchens (with every appliance and utensil imaginable), laundry rooms, living areas and furnished balconies enclosed by mosquito netting. All units have three bedrooms, but can be booked as one-, two- and three-bedroom suites — staff just lock off the bedrooms that aren’t in use. Condo owners have free rein over the decor, so interiors run the design spectrum from dark rattan furniture and citrus accents, to a beachy Miami style in soft pink and sea glass. Common throughout is an open-plan layout, a flood of natural light and a seashore soundtrack. All bedrooms have en suite stone bathrooms, with standalone showers or tubs in the Queen and Twin rooms, and a combo of both in the enormous master bathroom.
There’s no bar or restaurant here (though kitchens can be stocked in advance), and the staff clocks off in the late afternoon, but that’s all part of the appeal for the families and groups who return year after year. Use of the tennis court is shared with newer sister hotel the Venetian, just next door, and the lounger-dotted pool is a kid-friendly warmup to the real star of this show: Grace Bay Beach. Accessed via a palm tree–flanked catwalk, guests can make use of the loungers and small palapa-shaded tables, or just lie out on the white sand.
How to Get There
Everything was top notch. The bed, pillows, appliances, black out shades, a/c, wi fi, balcony, coffee, kitchen, beach, staff, grounds. Have stayed all over the island and would definitely return to Tuscany. Quiet location, not much activity on site, but perfect for beach relaxing. Ours easily turn it into a party with a group. No HBO in the room created some drama for GOT finale, but I figured it out on my iPad. Definitely suggest a stay here. Newer, well maintained facilities.
My husband and I stayed the Tuscany and absolutely loved it! It was peaceful, had a beautiful beach and great location, the staff was amazing and helpful, the condo we stayed in was SO WELL APPOINTED AND TERRIFICALLY FURNISHED! We loved eating breakfast on our balcony daily and taking long walks on the beach. We rented a car to go shopping, snorkeling, out to bars and restaurants. The resort is super quiet and we didn’t have to worry about a crowded beach or being bothered by too many people around the pool. We are already talking about when to return. Shauna and Terria were helpful in booking excursions for us, making restaurant reservations, etc. We love that the community is gated and the grounds were beautiful.
My wife and I just completed our first couples trip and our 4th trip to the island! The whole staff is incredible and it always feels like home. I just can’t say enough good things about The Tuscany and the experiences we have there.
