This is the 2nd year that my husband and I have stayed at the Great Bay. The views are awesome and worth the stay!
The rooms are clean, but smell musty when you first arrive. After a few days, we didn't notice it much as we burned candles and sprayed lysol! The buffet meals are okay, nothing spectacular. We ate several dinners at some of the great restaurants on the island, especially Peg Leg's, Mark's, and The Greenhouse. The pools at the hotel are great, especially the new infinity pool. The drinks were plentiful, but they ran out of strawberry daiquiri mix!!! The staff is very friendly and accommodating. A few complaints: We had to ask several times for towels because they ran out; people slamming their doors at all hours of the day & night (very loud because of tiled floors); and the traffic on the Dutch side of the island is horrendous. Other than that, we had a marvelous time and look forward to going back next year when our timeshare is ready!
