Family of 5 including parents with 3 adult sons enjoyed the Christmas 2018 week in this well-equipped unit located on a wide stretch of beautiful Grace Bay beach. Beaches is right next door but, no worries, there is enough of a buffer that the noise and crowds are not noticed.
It's a short bike/car ride to the Graceway grocery store where you will find most of the brand names - food, toiletries, alcohol, etc.) that you are used to but at significantly higher prices. A smart move would be to bring your own sunblock and bug spray.
Close by, you can arrange to go parasailing, tubing, etc. as an out of pocket expense. There are several very good restaurants within walking distance on the beach.
The situation is that this rental is not part of the inclusive amenities of the Alexandra Resort so the restrictions are the following: pool use is included, but bring your own towels (7 are supplied in the condo) and don't use the pool chairs. (There is an outdoor pool table adjacent to the pool under a canopy which was fun). On the beach front, there is a large section of beach chairs for non-inclusive guests with blue sun umbrellas with butler service that is separate from the Alexandra inclusive guests who have cream sun umbrellas. The resort's water fixtures (trampoline and tower) are also available to non-inclusive guests. There is a kayak, paddle board, and beach noodles available for the non-inclusive guests, as well, kept on the Beaches side of the property.
There were some minor inconveniences as a result of not being part of the resort all-inclusives (not being able to use the pool chairs, we were stopped once coming onto the property from the beach as we did not have the inclusive guest bracelet, the front desk staff wouldn't let us know when our baggage lost by American Airlines arrived there or have it delivered- we had to keep checking for it). For the money you save on the nightly rate, these minor inconveniences are well worth it, and then some!
Keely's place is totally awesome! My husband and I loved our 14 day vacation at this clean, quiet, next to the beach condo. The patio and the bedroom had beautiful views of the sea. The kitchen is well equipped with all that you might need. All towels and lined are plentiful and brand new. The washer and drier was great too. Everything was beyond our expectations. Thank you Keely for having us stay at your beautiful home! We will be back!!
