ravelers looking for affordable accommodation without compromising on location will find everything they’re looking for at a small hotel centrally located in Grace Bay aptly named Grace Bay Suites.
Fully renovated in 2020, Grace Bay Suites offers 24 guest rooms, all of which boast a balcony with a view of the pool, or, for the ground-level rooms, a lanai with a pool view. But aside from this feature that is often highlighted by the hotel’s guests, the biggest attraction for Grace Bay Suites is undoubtedly its sublime location. Situated next door to the Saltmills Plaza, the hotel is within a short walking distance to the beach. Guests can step outside their room and arrive on the sands of Grace Bay Beach in less than five minutes.
