Its location on a relatively undeveloped stretch of Grace Bay Beach, and an atmosphere so subdued that guests sometimes feel they ought to be tiptoeing, make Point Grace a haven for people who want no sounds but the lapping of waves, and, occasionally, a recommendation from a waiter. The 28-room resort has a modernized British Colonial style; the roomy suites feature a full kitchen and washer/dryer; there’s an excellent, if small, spa; and the restaurant is romantic enough to encourage marriage proposals, or reinforce that they were the right thing to do. But guests looking for a party atmosphere, or whose pleasure is to see their kids happily splashing in the pool, might want to look elsewhere.

Staying at Point Grace requires a taxi or rental car to get just about anywhere conveniently. No need to travel for a beach, though, as Point Grace’s is superb, and the use of Hobie Cats and kayaks is free. On foot, the Regent Village and Salt Mills Plaza shopping centers are about 15 minutes away. The Provo Golf Club, with four sets of tees for all level of players, is a five-minute drive, and Da Conch Shack and Rum Bar, a longtime favorite for local food, is a 20-minute excursion.
