I have stayed at Coral Cove a half dozen times over a span of nearly 20 years, with many trips to other Caribbean islands interspersed; all in all, Coral Cove remains one of my favorite destinations. First, the 'perch', with its panoramic view of sea and nearly undeveloped opposing shoreline is top-notch; I cannot think of a more idyllic place to relax with a rum punch and a good book. Second, Grenada is a fascinating island to explore, with many interesting towns/villages and other points of interest (e.g., national parks, rum distilleries, cricket pitches), including the extremely attractive and still relatively authentic capital, St. George's, all within 30-45 minutes drive. Third, Grenada's numerous beaches, though all a 10-plus minute drive from Coral Cove, are well worth the trip, each with its own charms; I especially like the calm and uncrowded Morne Rouge, which is also one of the closest. Finally, the restaurants on Grenada are fantastic - and there are many; I have never had a bad meal, whether at touristy places in St George's or in small seaside or village 'bistros' somewhat off the beaten track. I want to add that my visits have been in February-April, when it has indeed been quite breezy, and I have never had any issues with mosquitoes - in fact, Coral Cove is in my personal Caribbean database as a bug-free zone (very different from some places in the same months). The accommodations and service at Coral Cove are, as many other reviews have noted, somewhat basic, and certainly not what one would expect if one was looking for a four-star resort experience - but that is not the point here: Coral Cove is a great 'perch' above a gorgeous stretch of sea and coastline, perfect for long morning coffees and evening cocktails, and a superb base for exploring all the fascinating nation of Grenada has to offer.
