“Good Location at a Reasonable Cost”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2011

I enjoyed my 7 night stay at Siesta from Jan 29 to Feb 5. I arrived at 7:30am before the front desk staff arrived, so the taxi driver used the lobby phone to call for Nima, "the man in charge". He greeted me and put me in a temporary room until my room for the week was ready at 2:00pm. I enjoyed a hardy breakfast at their restaurant before resting and moving to my permanent room.

The location of this hotel is excellent. It's tucked away but within easy walking distance to the Spice Mill Mall and Grand Anse Beach. At the mall, you can buy groceries at the IGA, souvenirs at many stores or eat at the food court. The Siesta has a sister hotel - Allamanda where you can use their facilities. I didn't realize this until half way through my visit. You get free use of beach lounge chairs, the pool/spa etc.

My rating isn't excellent for this hotel due to several minor points. Unless you ask, there isn't information on tours available in the lobby or your room. I inquired about brochures and was given a Sunsation Brochure and a small map which helped me locate restaurants and sites.

I asked someone at the front desk what the hours of the restaurant were and she did not know. I therefore only ate breakfast there twice - my first and last morning. Please note, this restaurant is only open for breakfast, so you will need to venture out to dine for your other meals which is a great way to taste local dishes and meet other like minded visitors and wonderful Grenadians.

I am however, impressed at the Hotel's desire to fix any issue that arises. I needed a light bulb changed in a wall lamp and new batteries in the TV remote which were quickly replaced. On the flip side, I had an ongoing challenge of trying to get a clean wash cloth every couple of days. That's the only towel I requested to be changed every so often and several times it was not replaced. I will always remember to bring one from home to avoid the frustration ;-).

I so enjoyed my Grenada adventure and was very happy to find The Siesta Hotel, a simple no-frills hotel with "weathered charm". When I return to Grenada, I will happily consider staying at the Siesta Hotel once more.

After a long flight from Germany some 12 hours later stayed here at a reasonable price. Next flight was at 3:00 pm the next day, no problem staying in the room until taxi picked me up around 2:00 pm.

We have been staying at Siesta annually for many years(well into double figures) and find the hotel more than satisfies our needs and expectations.
Agree entirely with family review 'crutd001' Gillingham Kent Sept. 2010.
The ambience,location and friendliness of the staff is all you could wish for.
Close to Grande Anse beach,Spiceland mall and many eating facilities.
Since hurricane 'Ivan' things in the hotel are gradually improving and the WIFI facility is particularly useful to business and holidaymakers alike.
It is a family run hotel who live on the premises and should anything be required they or the staff are only too pleased to help.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a no fuss,tranquil and satisfying stay.

We got in on the evening November 25th. The room and accomodation were fine, however when I inquired about the Restaurant and Bar , I was told ot was closed for the week. So here it is , every day , we had to find ourselves some where else to have meals, rain or shine. This was a bit inconvenient for us, especially on mornings.

We must apologize on behalf of the restaurant. We were changing ownership of the restaurant during that week. They were moving out as we were moving back in. Hence the reason for the disruption in service. This was our fault. We should have made arrangements for food to be served during that period. Nonetheless, the transition is now complete, and we are serving breakfast every morning from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. Guests also have menus in their rooms and have the option to place outside orders for lunch and dinner. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience that took place during that week.

Siesta is one of our favourite places to stay in Grenada. It is a family run hotel and great value for money. Located just a few minutes walk from the beach, the rooms and apartments are well appointed and nothing gives us more pleasure than sitting on the balcony and watching the boats sail by. The staff are more than helpful. On our way to Grenada (at Gatwick), someone spilt a drink over my wife's coat, and on arrival at Siesta the staff had the coat cleaned for her. You would be hard pressed to find better service and a more friendly staff anywhere.
Having lived in Grenada some decades ago, we return each year to visit this island, dear to our hearts and over that time have stayed many places and can certainly recommend Siesta.

my first stay was very pleasant, the name speaks for itself, a very tranquil atmosphere,
however my second stay, three nights, an unfortunate and regrettable experience.
we had the misfortune of encountering a front desk woman, she must be at least fifty with numerous moles on her face. what she lacks in a pleasant smile and clean face she makes up for in ignorance and an impudent attitude.
she spends endless time gossiping on the phone, engaging mini bus drivers while guest await service she cannot purvey. one evening I was advised to walk to the supermarket at 9.p.m to get matches to light an insect repellent. The following morning I visited the front desk, attempting a stimulating conversation / directions to the beach was an impossibility, in my travels I have not encountered such utter ignorance. Owners must screen their staff before unleashing such ignorance on unsuspecting customers.

Because of this review we have implemented a customer satisfaction training program for all of our staff. We have brought in an independent consultant to training each of our departments - reception, restaurant, housekeeping. We're a small tight knit group, but that's no excuse. We know that this is an area that we can improve upon, and have taken the first steps towards providing better customer service.

We were very fortunate indeed to be able to spend three weeks of this summer holiday at the Siesta Hotel. We have stayed in some of the larger hotels in Grenada in previous years, but needed a more frugal place to stay this year. We had a one-bedroomed appartment and were delighted with our stay. The hotel is a bit of a walk away from the main Grand Anse beach, but it is set in such lush and tranquil surroundings and the excercise was very good for me!
We enjoyed the bird and insect sounds and were able to see glow worms and fruit bats at night. We were able to buy our own fresh fish from the local fisherman on the beach, and really appreciated the cooking fascililties in our apartment. The double sink was particularly useful when preparing fresh mango and numerous other local fruits, and the large refridgerator was an great asset. The room was cleaned daily, the maids were friendly and trustworthy, and happily adapted to our holiday routines - letting the teenager lie in and us eating or drinking on the balcony!
The hotel management and staff were always helpful and courteous, and the teenagaer was particularly happy to have free access to the internet!
This is a child friendly and family run hotel and was very good value for money! We would certainly recommend it for anyone wanting an unspoilt and quiet holiday in Grenada.
