Our trip this year to Grenada, staying at Coral Cove, was our second in two years, so that's a recommendation in itself. We knew that the place hadn't been 'improved' much since our last stay but everything is functional and as another reviewer remarked, 'solidly built.' Most cottages and apartments have AC now but given the steady brisk wind coming off the east Caribbean you can get by without it. Windows can be left open at night because efficient mozzy screens cover all windows; but having said that, the constant cooling breeze keeps the little blighters at bay anyway. But let's face it, this is the tropics and there are bound to be mozzies, a few centipedes and beetles and such encroaching. However, I believe that the properties are treated with a long lasting insecticide because any little critter that made it past the threshold didn't seem to survive very long. A tip though, keep the plugs in the kitchen sinks or you may get a cute little bell frog, smaller than your thumb, singing its 'boink' song to you on the draining board in the evening. They’re utterly harmless and provide a few minutes diversion.
More importantly; Coral Cove's daily maid service is fantastic; the standard of cleanliness is exemplary and there were even fresh flower displays on the dining table every day. Nothing ever appears to be too much trouble. The proprietors, Damien and his mum Esther Noel, are utterly charming. They go out of their way to assist and help and are a mine of information on Grenada. There may be far more luxurious places to stay on the island but for people such as us who spend nearly all day out and about, Coral Cove offers an excellent, sensibly priced and homely base. It's ideal for families with children; there's a decent sized swimming pool and a clean, safe beach for paddling and splashing in. The sea coral, however, reaches the shoreline and although nicely smoothed by time it raises the shore bed to the extent that you can't actually swim from the beach. But all is not lost because there's an excellent, sturdy jetty from which swimmers can safely launch themselves and snorkelers can venture forth. The beach's appearance is quite idyllic being lined with coconut palms, Indian almond and sea cotton trees. High above them you can see magnificent frigate birds soaring and watch heron stalking the tide pools at low water. If BBQing is your thing, then there’s one on the beach and if you want to eat out then there are dozens of places to eat from the cheap and cheerful to the more upmarket restaurants of La Luna, The Aquarium and the Beach House. Grande Anse beach and Spice Island Mall (with large supermarket) are about ten minutes drive away. If any more information is required about Coral Cove or Grenada (Carriacou and Petite Martinique) or other Grenadine islands is required – simply email. Finally though I can’t recommend Coral Cove more highly for a comfortable, sensibly priced, no frills holiday base.
