My husband and I recently returned from this resort and I must say it was a delight. We stayed there for 4 days and I think that was quite a long enough time to make a review...here goes:
Location: The resort is situated about 3 minutes walking distance from the airport, don't start getting jitters, we only heard a plane once and it sounded like a truck passing by. The airport is not a busy one so there really is nothing to worry about. I suggest you save your taxi fare $$ and take a walk to the hotel it's that close. Unless you have tons of luggage there is no need to pay $25US for a 2 block ride.
Grenada is a small island so if you want to get to the town or do some site seeing you can take a taxi on the main road or one of the hotel taxis easy as pie!!
Resort Grounds: The grounds are expansive and BEAUTIFUL!!!! If you stay here for anything stay for the beautiful grounds. Imagine waking up in the morning to the sound of various birds singing love songs to each other, or stepping out on your balcony and seeing the blue calm waters of the Caribbean, not to mention the flowers, the lake and the ambiance!!! Lets just say the grounds are really GREAT!!!
Food: I suggest you get an all inclusive package. The food and drinks are all very tasty and you won't go hungry! There is also a variety of Caribbean flavors and dishes; Breakfast, Lunch, Tea and Dinner. 3 restaurants to chose from, drinks everywhere you go. Just be advised that collared shirts are a requirement for men at dinner.
Entertainment: There was something to do everyday and night. There was aqua aerobics, nature walks, live music, karaoke night, manager's rum punch lime, so you won't get bored, plus the beach is on the compound and the pool is lively.
Staff: Grenadian people are some of the friendliest, warmest and most agreeable in the Caribbean so it's no surprise that the staff are as accommodating as can be.
Reception: Upon our arrival there was a long delay to get our rooms about 2 hours. I don't know why, but we got cold towels at the desk and we spent the wait walking and looking at the grounds so it was not the worst thing in the world. If you were on a long flight it may have been a tad inconvenient.
Rooms: This Resort is rated as a 3 star so I just wanted to say the rooms are 3 star. Although very clean the furniture is dated. The bathroom is updated though!! Oh and the hot water in the shower is room temperature at times!!! But you're on vacation in a hot island that should not be a major concern!!!!
So that's my review a bit long but I figured I'd touch all the bases.
