Various styles of rooms are available, including deluxe, superior, and some with ocean views. Children under 3 years who do not need their own bed stay for free, while those aged under 16 who share a room with their parents also stay for free, paying only the standard gratuities.
Grotto Bay Beach Resort Dining
There are three options available at meal times, serving different styles of food which is, of course, always delicious. These are:
- The Palm Court
The food here is based on Bermuda favourites, and sports a relaxed style (and casual dress code).
- The Hibiscus Room
Featuring an elegant style and European dishes with a hint of local flavor, this is a more formal environment to enjoy either breakfast or dinner in. A smart casual dress code is in place, which includes a collared shirt for men. The Sunday Brunch is famous island-wide.
- The Bayside Grill
In the high season guests can feast on a light lunch, as well as bistro evening menus or buffets at the Grill, while in the low season a huge winter breakfast buffet and evening cocktail bar are on offer.
All inclusive meal packages can be purchased by guests if they wish.
