“Lovely place on a great island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We visited to celebrate my wife's 'significant' birthday! Coyaba is perfectly located on a fantastic beach (and probably on a better part of the Grand Anse than some of the 6* hotels nearby!). We visited at Easter and because the greedy travel companies had all put their prices up, there were very few people staying at the hotel. In most regards this was great, not having to think about booking tables for meals or fighting other nations for the sunbeds! The downside was that there wasn't really much atmosphere of an evening. This is hardly the hotel's fault per se, but some of the staff did seem rather miserable as it was so quiet. That said, many were really good fun too. The room was excellent, the grounds fantastic. Catering was satisfactory if a bit samey. And Grenada is a really great island to enjoy, with fantastic scenery and very friendly people. We would return.

Room Tip: There is not that much difference between a sea view and a garden view room!

Situated on Grand Anse beach the hotel is in a great location. The beach is clean and when we were there very quiet; there were some hawkers on the beach and we found them to be a bit annoying at times but a polite 'no thanks' would normally mean that they would move on. We loved the staff and their genuine friendliness and the hotel gardens were a pleasure to walk around with lots of differentb plants and animals to look at.
Where we felt let-down with the hotel were the rooms - whilst well cleaned the bathrooms were too small and very dated they would benefit from a major revamp. The main room also felt old and tired but the bed was very comfortable and the AC worked very well. Food was repetitive, whilst well cooked it was very samey; even choosing off the al la carte did not give too much choice. It wasn't until a few days into our stay that we found that the casual restaurant had a different lunch menu (wraps, sandwiches and burgers) to that found in the 'posh' downstairs restaurant. That, at least, gave us some more variety.
There were many trips that the hotel would/could have organised and people who went on them said that they were very good and value for money. We used the spa (very good) and the dive school (eco divers) who were also very good. We managed to do all of the dives that we had planned (and some that we didn't), the highlights being the numerous wrecks in the area - particularly the Bianca C.
Overall we had a good holiday but felt that the hotel did not quite live up to our expectations.

Went to Grenada for a friends wedding, 2 weeks all inclusive at the Coyaba Beach Resort. Had a lovely time, it's a beautiful place- the people are friendly and even though it was the beginning of their rainy season, the weather was wonderful. The hotel was clean & nice, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the only issue we had worth mentioning was a dissagreement with the Hair Dresser & Make up artist brought in for the wedding. So I would advise any Brides/Bridesmaids going here to make sure all costs & details concerning the hair and make up are covered well before the event, in writing if possible.

This was the second hotel in our Saga "Islands of the Caribbean Tour" and a great improvement on Blue Haven in Tobago.The gardens are beautiful, standards of cleanliness in all areas is good as is the food. Rooms were also of a good standard although some people complained the en-suits were too small. Lots to do both in the hotel and in Grenada itself

Just come back from 2 weeks all inclusive at Coyaba.
Firstly this was not just a typical holiday for us, it was where we have just married and spent our honeymoon.
We booked it as part of a wedding package last year and I had done my research on Tripadvisor before choosing this resort.
Positives:-
Hotel is clean, gardens idyllic and staff were very friendly and anything we wanted or asked for was met. We were there 5 days before marrying and the wedding coordinator Sandra helped us sort our documents before the ceremony. There was a problem with the hairdresser the hotel provided so Sandra helped me find another girl to do my wedding day hair and she didn't disappoint. I was able to choose the type of bouquet I wanted and we also met with the head chef who designed a special wedding day dinner for us based on our likes/dislikes. Again everything was perfect and the staff knowing we were getting married made it extra special for us. We married on the beach and the other holidaymakers and staff all came to watch, champagne was brought to the beach to share with our new friends and a yummy cake was provided which we gave to the guests and staff that evening. Next morning we had champagne breakfast in our room.. lovely. During the stay my husband fancied some fresh coconut and after chatting to one of the hotel gardeners he brought some in from his garden the next day for us.
The beach is perfect with a few hawkers but they didn't pester you after you said a firm no thanks. Neither of us had any dodgy tummies which tells you what the standard of food was like. 2 restaurants, one casual and one more formal for the evening but you could eat the same menu at either restaurant, it just boils down to whether you want to wear casual or dress up.
Food was lovely with afternoon tea provided at 4pm daily with some biscuits/sandwiches. The pool was ok with a swim up bar serving cocktails and soft drinks all day. You could take a drink away with you and onto the beach if you liked to.
Nice clean bedrooms with comfy beds and pillows cleaned daily. After we married we asked if we could swap to a ground floor room nearer to the beach which they agreed, again nothing was any trouble.
A good fitness room there which my husband used most days and it was nice just to stand inside and cool off when it was humid outside!
We hired a car for a couple of days, it was delivered to hotel and the paperwork completed in 5mins. There are plenty of excursions to choose from but we decided that hiring a car and seeing the sites ourself was better for us with no time constraints and you could just go where you wanted in your own time. Drove to the north of the island and only needed to put about £20 petrol in it. A drive through the rainforest a must and we visited Concorde Falls.
Negatives:-
By the second week some of the evening meals had become a little repetitive.
Hardly any evening entertainment apart from a steel band once a week and a very good singer mid week.
We both felt that the managers Tuesday night cocktail party was a bit of a let down. We arrived and couldn't wait to meet the owner and tell him we had just married at his hotel the day before but he didn't seen that bothered. He asked us where in the UK we are from and that was it really. His reaction disappointed us a bit and he was keen to move on and say hi to other guests. We felt it was just a public relations exercise and nothing more. It would have just been nice for the owner to have been a little more happy to know that we had chosen his hotel to marry at considering there are plenty of other places in the world we could have chosen. Lastly I got eaten alive by Mosquitos and had to get the doctor out 2 days before flying back as they got infected. About 20 bites on 1 leg, 15 on the other and that was after using over 50% deet in the repellant and other strong stuff. I didn't use perfume as that also attracts them and wore loose clothing to stop them getting trapped.. Little blighters still bit me!! I think the they got into the restaurant at night as its open air and they must just like my blood although husband got bitten second week and
he doesn't normally get bites. It could be the time of year as it is going into their rainy season. Maybe hotel could spray something around the gardens which may not attract them as much, I know some hotels do this.
We met lots of return guests who had been there several times before and for value for money I think it was great. If we return to Grenada again ( hope we will) we'll definitely go back to Coyaba but I'll check out best times for not being eaten alive by the Mosquitos!!

This hotel starts off with the huge advantage of being on Grand Anse Beach, the longest and possibly the best beach in Grenada. The sea is fairly calm and the beach is excellent for walking - turn left when you leave the grounds of the hotel for the better half of the beach - while the hotel is situated in a sizeable garden which is kept in first rate condition by an army of gardeners.

I would disagree with some of the previous reviewers who have said that the hotel is tired or in need of modernisation. Although the bathrooms are a little on the small side, I thought that everything else was more than adequate.

Most of the guests - when I was there - were repeat visitors and staying on an "all inclusive" basis, all of which would suggest that the food and drink was excellent, and it was. I tried several other nearby restaurants and nowhere was the food as good as at the Coyaba.

Also, bear in mind that this is the driest part of the island - the weather was very good and it stayed dry even when it was pouring with rain a mile down the road.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the ground floor if you don't like climbing stairs. There are no lifts.

I made my trip to Grenada for the first time with my beautiful girl friend and we stayed at Coyaba. On entering the resort their was a change the feeling, the place was quiet and windy. This is what I wanted for the both of us, just to relax without any interruption. We were welcomed with a big smile the food were excellent. Breakfast and lunch were buffet style. Every day was a different menu for lunch and dinner. Even though we had a problem with our room door the first night after we came from dinner the manager (sorry i didn't get his name) came to check the problem and gave us another room to stay in while they were trying to open the door. Eventually we collected out stuff and stayed in the new room. Grand Anse Beach was fantabulous.... I never thought that I would have experience sea water like that. We were entitled to water sports and that was lovely. Even though the weather was overcast we still enjoyed the beach and pool. The bar staff were very friendly. The manager even awarded us a complimentary stay because of the problem we had the first night. There were so much things to do at the hotel that it would be hard to find time to leave it. For sure I will return to Coyaba Resort. It was excellent
