Or fourth visit to Spice Island, so you know we like it! On this visit we were impressed by how many others had stayed before, and how many "first timers" were already planning to come back.Why the popularity? I think there are four reasons
Position. From the hotel you step directly onto the two-and-a-half miles of Grande Anse Beach. In adition there are several gentle walks available from the hotel to places such as Quarentine Point and Mourne Rouge. Across the road is a shopping mall with a supermarket, a bank and a pharmacy in addition to smaller local shops. If you want to get to the capital, St Geoges, the number one bus takes you there from the road end.
The rooms. We stayed in a Seagrape Suite which has a bathroom with a jacuzzi bath and a shower, a large bedroom with lots of storage space, a lounge area with a TV and DVD player, a covered patio and an outside patio equipped with loungers and a hammock
The food. The food here has steadily improved over the years and is now first-class (though it's easy to eat too much). The house wines are better than they were, and the bar is well stoked and has good bar staff, The service in the restaurant is good.
The staff. As with any hotel the staff have an enormous importance when it comes to enjoyment.We found them welcoming and efficient, and it's probably noteable that several have been there since we first went in 2006. The Hopkins family, who own the hotel,are ever present, which ensures everone is on their toes.
Any drawbacks? The entertainment is of mixed quality, and if you want to be in the bar drinking noisily until the early hours of the morning this is not the place for you - the bar shuts at 11pm, and is often empty well before that.
