We just came back from a beautiful two week holiday at the Grenadian, and I have to say it was just wonderful! First off I must mention that the check in was the worst I've ever experienced, but the staff were excellent and are working at improving this. I’d like to thank Lizanie and Crystal for their help at the front desk.
The beach was absolutely fantastic!!! The Caribbean Sea was warm, and the walk along the beach we really enjoyed because of the beautiful views of the coastline. We love to exercise, and found that the walk along the beach was so good, that we didn't even bother to use the gym. We would like to thank Leslie who organized beach volleyball and pool volleyball. We really enjoyed both.
We selected the Hillside room and were very happy. It did have a balcony, but we found that we were at the beach most of the time, so never used it. Our room was kept clean, and the bed was firm but comfortable. The room we had, had a shower, which worked just fine for us, as we prefer showers. One thing to mention is that not all rooms have an in room safe, but they do have additional ones at the front office for no extra charge. We did have a problem with our safe, but would like to thank Allum and also Coleman for fixing it right away. With regards to the property, it is quite large, and there is quite a bit of nature to enjoy. We were very lucky and happened to come upon a nest of sea turtles just hatching and heading out to sea! We also enjoyed the large grouping of ponds on the property which we could walk around. We loved to feed the fish in the morning, and watch the birds come in and catch the fish. It was just awesome to see this so close up and be able to get photos! We just loved the beach, and really liked the fact that it is so spread out. We never had an issue finding a beach lounger, and we weren't bumper to bumper with people. The grounds are a little hilly, with many stairs, so if you have a mobility issue, you would be best to pick an ocean front room.
With regards to the restaurants, the food was very good. There was plenty of variety, and the chefs do a great job. Everything was fresh, and you could tell made from scratch. Excellent homemade soups! Fantastic BBQ on Saturday night with Baby Back Ribs and Chicken! There are two restaurants to eat at, one at the front of the property and one at the pool area. There is an Asian Restaurant on the property, which is a la cart, but we found we were very happy with the buffet at the Cinnamon. Dress code is in effect for dinner only. We would especially like to thank Kathy-Ann for her wonderful service and welcoming smile! Also we have to thank Addonis, as she too was so friendly and helpful! I would also like to mention that you can drink the water – no need for bottled water at this resort.
There are three bars on the property. We have to really thank Gerard! Gerard, you do an awesome job! You work well under so much pressure! We look forward to coming back and seeing you again.
I have to thank Diedy from Air Transat. You are the best representative we’ve met from the many all-inclusive holidays we’ve enjoyed. I strongly recommend the trip to the St. Georges Market and Fort Georges! Our driver Hal was very knowledgeable, and the view from Fort Georges is absolutely beautiful! Be sure to go to the market and buy spices, as Grenada is the spice island. I love to cook, and would highly recommend bringing home whole nutmeg, bay leaves, cinnamon, ground ginger, curry, cloves, and vanilla beans!
There was evening entertainment, and we really enjoyed the female singer with her backup band, and the male singer with his band. One thing that we especially enjoyed was the local drummers with the dancers. Thank you for providing local entertainment of the island.
Finally I have to say, that I loved walking the beach, and dancing at night. I would highly recommend a massage at the beach with Janice! I know she is not with the Grenadian Resort, but a private lady who does manicures and massages at the beach. There is nothing more relaxing then having a leg and foot massage at the beach, while you enjoy the sound of the surf! She is very professional, and knows where the knots are and worked them out. Her price was very good as well.
I would recommend this resort, and can’t wait to go back. I find the island has beautiful scenery, and the beach was perfect for swimming, walking, and snorkelling! The resort has so much nature to enjoy! The people of Grenada are very nice, and they really made our vacation even more enjoyable!
