We visited LaSource 10 days in January 2015; 7 days of this stay were our free week that we earned. Flights to Grenada in a nutshell SUCK, but they are working to get earlier arrival times. We arrived at 9:30 pm. We stayed at a hotel in town and went to LaSource around 8:00 the next morning via taxi.
Check-in was quick. Our room was not ready of course, so we just enjoyed the beach and resort until we could get into the room. We got into our room after lunch. We were in the Pink Gin Oceanview Penthouse Room and we had a fabulous view. The room and balcony are small, but for us it was fine; we don't spend much time in the room anyway. There are no dressers, only shelves in the closet and not many of those. It would be nice if they added at least one dresser to put clothes. We were in this room for 3 days when we were offered an upgrade after we had talked to one of the staff members at the Returning Guest dinner (we didn't complain, we just talked about how we loved the beach view and was happy with our room). The second room was still in the Pink Gin area but it was beachfront with a very large patio that was shared between 3 rooms (don't worry you have patio areas off your room that is hidden from the other rooms and there are curtains to pull for complete privacy). Other than the larger patio, concierge service, and beachfront, the room was the same as the original. We loved the large patio and sat out there every evening. We would not have moved if we given the option to move away from the oceanfront rooms.
Butches is by far the best restaurant in our opinion. The steaks are some of the best we have ever eaten. My favorite was the surf and turf. Shout out to Latoya and Melissa. Latoya is such a happy go lucky person; she just makes you smile.
Le Jardinier is our second favorite. Mornings they serve sit down breakfast which is very good and it is in such an elegant setting. At night it is elegant and the service is superb. My favorite was the Chateaubriand; my husband's was the Bouillabaisse. Shout out to Natalie who gave us superb service and warm hugs.
Cucina Romana is also very good. I would like more tomato based dishes as I'm not fond of cream based foods. Service was excellent and overall the food is very good.
Neptunes was the best for lunch. Their catch of the day was so good. We ate lunch here more than anyplace. It is right on the beach so you get that great seaside atmosphere. The evening meal was a disappointment. Don't get me wrong, the food is good, but there was just something missing. There just wasn't a meal that really stood out as special. The service at Neptunes was among the best. Shout out to Pushadah (aka Pushy) and Adonnis. Both brightened our days.
Spices is the buffet place for breakfast and lunch. Good selection of food but to us it seemed small compared to other Sandals resorts. Jean makes the best omelets and is so much fun to talk to. The evening meal was of our least favorite. Again there just wasn't anything special that stood out on the menu. But as usual, the service was outstanding. This is also open late night for meals.
Tipsy Turtle is pub food. Good if you just want something small. We ate one night because I wanted to see if the bangers (sausage to us Americans) and mash were really British bangers. They were not like any we had in England when we lived there. Good service. Shout out to Johan (I may have mispelled his name); he brought us drinks without having to ask and we had a nice conversation with him.
Soy's and Kimono's we didn't try. We don't like sushi and we have been to several Kimono's. Kimono's is good if you like that kind of food and atmosphere.
Cafe De Paris is a great place for a cup of coffee and a pastry. The ladies here are very friendly and helpful. I feel bad that I didn't get their names but they were all very personable and helpful
Hot Dog stand nothing to write home about. It's quick and simple and they guy making the hot dogs acted like he would rather be someplace else.
The beach isn't the best beach we have visited, but we found it very nice. Yes there are lots of shells etc, but we never had a problem with them. We just watched where we walked. We are beach people and never go to the pool. We also must have shade and we never had a problem finding it. If you go between the gazebo and the water sports shop there are plenty of chairs in the shade. We didn't find people saving chairs at 6:00 in the morning like other resorts. We didn't get to the beach until after 9:00 on a couple of days and still found chairs. The first 4 or 5 days we were there, the beach was almost deserted.
We utilized the Hoby Cats and they were great fun. There was always a wind the whole 10 days we were at the resort. My husband went on a snorkeling trip and he said it was great. He had a good time. He brought his own snorkel and snorkeled in the swimming area and saw lots of fish.
This resort has some of the best staff that we have ever encountered. They are so helpful and genuinely seem to care that you are having a good time.
SHOUT OUTS not mentioned above:
Claire and Kevin at Club Sandals; they were always there to help and always a smile.
Gary and Terence at the living room bar; Gary is a hoot and have Terence make you a Grenadian Sky
Silburn at baggage handling area; we had many conversations with him and he is a great guy
Mr Ritchie, the hotel manager. He is really concerned about what the guests think of the resort. We got to talk with him twice and he is doing a great job with the resort. We hope to see him again soon.
