service for nonefrom andytscg
Very Dissapointingfrom A TripAdvisor Member
If you like to be left to your own devices and aren't a serivce orientated person then this is the place for you. The rooms, all suites, have a good sized kitchen and are large enough to make it feel like your own apartment. But if you like the odd bit of room service, a mini bar and generally to feel that if you want something then you only need to ask, I don't think this would be the place for you.
I can only echo other people's words when I say that service is not high on the agenda. The staff are more happy chatting to each other. From the moment we pulled up to the resort I think I knew that it was not what I had been expecting and with all the construction work going on (leaving a nice fine dust over breakfast and lunch crockery and cultery) at least for the majority of this year, I think that the resort will be further spoilt.
Food was alright, nothing amazing. Breakfast a buffet affair, again nothing out of the ordinary. Gym is a 15 minute walk away, not 5 as the woman on the front desk had said. Basically our overriding impression is that this is an aparthotel, geared for people who are going to cook for themselves and want to be left alone, therefore, spas, gyms, room service and restaurants aren't high on their priority list. Just a nice beach (which it is) and good views out to sea, which all the rooms have.
I would go to Parrot Cay, it is FANTASTIC!!! We had 7 days there first and if I had known what GBC was like sooner I would have stayed at Parrot Cay...
The BEST VACATION EVER!!from ChrisTravel
A fabulous experiencefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The suite was lovely with 2 large bathrooms, enormous kitchen (for a hotel) and beautiful ocean views. The maid service (twice a day) was wonderful. The beautiful touches in the room (especially on Valentine's day) did not go unnoticed.
The staff at the hotel was friendly but not intrusive. Carol at the desk was very helpful with dinner reservations (and they would shuttle you to and from each night.) Carlos on the beach had my chair ready with extra towels as soon as I came down each morning. They brought Evian, fruit skewers and ice cream during the day. The breakfast buffet was nice, the muffins were the highlight. Beverly was such a friendly face each morning.
The beach is gorgeous, it is just a shame that they are doing so much construction, (Grace Bay included).
My greatest fear is that the resort will lose it's intimacy with the addition of the new rooms (and the addition of children)
A great part of the success must be attributed to the hotel manager (Nikkeel) He was a huge part of the feeling of the hotel and was the most charming manager I ever have come in contact with. He always had a smile and always greeted you by name. I would hate to see the resort without him there.
A truly amazing week at a first class resort!!!!!!
TOTAL PARADISE!from TinaLS
A True Disappointmentfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I have stayeed at many fine resorts around the world and would have to say that this was the biggest waste of money ever. I visited Parrot Cay Resort and would highly recommend that hotel over Grace Bay Club to anyone debating between the two properties.
a true gem!from chloelue930
The beach is gorgeous, powdery, white sand that stretches for miles in each direction. We think it's one of the most beautiful beaches in the carribean, if not the world. [Presently, there is quite a bit of construction on the island, including additions to the Grace Bay Club. We truly hope this does not change the character of the island and this resort]. The staff brings you Evian with your beach chair and towel. Each afternoon, complimentary, home made sorbet is delivered to you on the beach or at the pool. The afternoon tea is just lovely, and a welcome break from the sun.
Anacaondo, the restaurant, was phenomenal. Breakfast each morning there was a large buffet was many options, including fresh fruit, fresh baked pastry and yogurt. Dinner was also divine, a true culinary delight. The staff remembers your preferences and brings you what you need without even having to ask.
The hotel runs a complimentary shuttle to restaurants and resorts in the area, and provides complimentary service to and from the airport. We can't wait to return to the Grace Bay Club!
Most beautiful water and beaches, BUTfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Poor servicefrom VyVy60
Very Disappointedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The ocean front suite we had was clean & spacious, but the layout was very odd. They had a very comfortable bed in where the sitting area should have been and the couch up on a second floor that no one would use. Therefore, if you wanted to watch TV comfortably, you had to sit or lay on the bed.
They really need to work on the staff to be more warm, friendly and helpful. We felt a lot of the staff (not all) was quite cool and indifferent. They spent a lot of the time, just standing around talking to each other, instead of taking care of the guests. I could go on and on with more examples, but that would take too much time and space.
Grace Bay beach is fabulous, but I would look elsewhere such as the Alexandra Resort for better service, food and value for the dollar.
Top Local Tips for Providenciales
Taxis Most restuarants and shops we went to are in the Grace Bay Area. The hotel was easily able to arrange taxis for us for no more than $10 for the two of us.
Great Restaurants With all of the development on Provo there seems to be a demand for high quality restaurants which is great. We particularly liked Coyaba (very romantic) and Magnolias (great view of the harbor)
LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP there is a lot of construction and building up of the island and you should GRILL them to see if they are undergoing construction ANYWHERE on the property or if NEIGHBORING properties are undergoing construction - get it in writing because this is not what they want to tell you!!!
