Just a five-minute taxi ride from L.F. Wade International Airport, Grotto Bay Beach Resort couldn't possibly be closer to your point of arrival or departure—so if you're looking for a hassle-free, all-inclusive beach resort where you'll have on-site access to sailing charters and diving excursions, then this is the place for you. Spread across 21  bougainvillea- and hibiscus-draped acres, the resort has 201 recently renovated rooms in 11 cottages, all with plantation-style furniture, island-inspired artwork, and private outdoor balconies or patios. 


But it's the waterfront that makes this resort especially suitable for families and couples. Alongside the calm waters of Castle Harbour, the resort's pink sand beach barely gets a ripple of waves. The water is so still, in fact, the resort added a floating water park featuring a huge inflatable slide and trampoline about 30 yards from shore—a family-friendly romp within eyeshot of Grotto Bay's two other waterfront attractions. Both located on a pier adjacent to the resort, Ana Luna is a 44-foot catamaran available for half- and full-day sailing charters around the east end of the island, and Triangle Diving takes guests on adventurous SCUBA dives of all sorts, including dives to the sunken wrecks that are prevalent in Bermuda’s waters. For those who choose the all-inclusive option, there are two bars and three on-site restaurants, which serve Continental cuisine for all tastes (although the food at the resort is quite unremarkable).
