“coyaba beach resort Grenada”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Just got back last week from the Coyaba Beach Resort Grenada.
Lovely location right on the beach, probably the best part too. The hotel is quite small so everyone mixes really well. Met some lovely people.The staff were amazing, so friendly and cheerful and they soon get to know you. Food is good although the Al a Carte menu could do with changing from time to time. Also the breakfast was quite limited, with the food station being quite small. The lunch time menu at the pool bar is good. Bar staff make the best drinks, no watering down here! Very limited entertainment which means there isn't much atmosphere of an evening, but still pleasant. The hotel was very quiet, as was the whole Island at this time of year, but at least there was no shortage of sunbeds. There are a lot of vendors on the beach which does get a bit annoying, but they do usually go away with a "no thank you". Also sand flies and mosquitoes were are huge problem. Most mosquito bites seemed to occur around the bar/restaurant area of an evening. Nothing seems to work against them either, so be prepared.
the rooms were OK, but a re-furb would be nice. They were clean, but a bit tired we felt, particularly the bathrooms which don't have a/c. Still, were clean.
We did our own trip around the island for a day. Not much to see. We all doubted very much as to whether to rum distillery has actually produced anything in the last 50 years or more and even if it does we wouldn't want to drink anything made there as is disgustingly dirty! Also doubt if the chocolate factory produces anything either. Both properties look derelict! Not an ounce of stainless steel in sight! But still, it was a day out! Do call at Petit Anse and call in the hotel there for lunch or a drink as the views are fantastic with the most fabulous breeze. Very welcome on a hot humid day.
Overall we enjoyed Grenada and the Coyaba. The gardens were lovely and staff were great.

Room Tip: Choose a superior room, as are slightly bigger.

We stayed at the Coyaba Beach Resort Hotel for two weeks in June 2013 on an All Inclusive package purchased from British Airways. The hotel is located on the central part of the beautiful Grand Anse Beach with golden sand and crystal clear waters and this along with the fantastic colourful gardens made for a really relaxing holiday. The rooms were fine although the bathroom was a tad old fashioned and the three times we needed to call maintenance (for faulty safe, leaky air conditioning unit and a failed bulb) were all attended and rectified promptly. All the staff were efficient but with the exception of our room maid and a couple of ladies in the restaurant and bar (Rachel and Idis) all took a while ‘warming’ to individuals. Perhaps a more outward welcoming approach would be of benefit to the hotel. The manager was very friendly and communicative and his style of approach should be adapted by his staff.
However, the food aspect of the package left a lot to be desired. The repetitive nature of the menu, the lack of tastiness and sometimes poor quality of meat cuts meant that alternative options such as purchasing items from the supplementary menu or visiting the neighbouring establishment of Umbrellas was sought. Moreover, the additional high charge for items such as prawns was quite ridiculous – similar more tasty options were available at Umbrellas at less than the supplementary charge. One item of food I ordered from the supplementary hotel menu had even reduced in quality on the second occasion. There were plenty of salad and pasta options but the meat dishes considered of chicken or tough beef and pork cuts, so be warned and consider a breakfast plan only. The breakfasts, although repetitive and lacking in imagination as to selection did the job satisfactorily. I would have awarded a fourth ‘star’ had the food been better.
There is a small swimming pool with a swim-up bar but the pool is rarely used and why would you when the sea is so perfect? There are more than enough comfortable sun loungers but you will have to pull your own onto the public beach should you wish to sunbathe there. If you are on AI Package make sure you do not miss the Beach Bar or ‘Sin-Bin’ as some staff referred to it – it is close to the two beach entrance security huts.
We would return to this hotel on a different meal plan as the location is superb. The walks along the beach were really rewarding and the hawkers were not as irksome as some other reviewers have indicated. They have a living to make and a simple ‘no thank you’ always sufficed. There were also some interesting characters including a guy who took his two dogs out for a float in the sea and the fish salesman who called out for business via a sea shell. The gardens contain numerous attractive bushes and a variety of fruit trees with at least four different types of lizards and several bird species. The red land crabs that live in the road ditches outside the hotel are also very interesting. The sunsets can occasionally be quite spectacular.

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.
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.
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!!
