“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

The Kalinago is on a quiet beach with a gentle surf. It is a perfect setting for the sunset. Our room was very comfortable and the staff helpful. We would definitely stay again.
The access to the hotel could be difficult, it is down a very steep drive. Otherwise a great location.

We did not stay at this resort but ate in the restaurant and sat on the public beach in front of the hotel. Sign on beach Happy Hour 4-7 every day. To our dismay this did not include a rum punch! Complained about the mis information and we were given a 20% discount.

After 2 weeks on Grand Anse beach and 1 week on Carriacou, we returned to Grenada for our final week, this time on Morne Rouge Beach (April 14 to 20, 2011).

After much research, as usual, we chose the Kalinago Beach Resort directly on Morne Rouge Beach. It was built in 2010 and named after the Carib indigenous people, who in their native tongue called themselves Kalinago. The resort was very nice and suited us well, even though it didn't have a kitchen (small fridge though, which we found very handy -- we were still able to have our breakfasts and some other meals on the balcony). We opted for a room on the 3rd floor as the price differential between ground floor and upper was minimal. Also no mosquitoes higher up, not that we noticed any on the beach. Our room was the second from the end on the top (3rd) floor as seen from the beach (see photo). The room was very nice and spotlessly clean. Although reviews of the resort’s restaurant were mixed, we found the food very good, prices reasonable, and service friendly. Since Morne Rouge Beach is fairly small and has only the 2 hotels, it is very quiet. This hotel is exactly the kind of place we enjoy the most – small (29 rooms) and family run. The owners and staff are very friendly and will help with anything you need.

The resort had an enjoyable free drink and appetizer gathering one night (manager’s weekly cocktail party) and on another day guests were taught how to make Grenada’s national dish, “Oil Down.” Most of the guests attending joined in and we all had fun chopping various vegetables for the dish. We needed to leave for our turtle tour before the dish had finished cooking so they saved some for us to have the next day – it was excellent.

The Morne Rouge Beach has lovely sand and is excellent for swimming since it’s so calm. Snorkeling, however, was not worth the effort. This beach is next to Grand Anse (south) and it only took about 15 minutes to walk up and down a hill to get to the Grand Anse Beach where we went for a number of early morning walks and bought groceries nearby.

We give the Kalinago Beach Resort high marks and would certainly return.

Room Tip: Go for a room on the 3rd floor - wonderful views from the private balcony.

My wife and I loved ourselves at Kalinago beach resort. Our room was the deluxe suite and was well decorated by one of the staff.The entire ambience was so good we agree to return there. Everything,even the food we tried was good. My favorite dish was the cod fish with plantain,while my wife loved the buffalo wings. So we are looking to return to see our home away from home and the hospitable and professional staff. So if anyone is thinking of a place to get away, consider this resort.

This is the second time we visited Kalinago. The staff are the best, always friendly and go out of their way to make your time with them perfect. The food, the hotel, the beach, the drinks...doesn't get any better.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are beach front.

Reading some reviews continues to convince me that some people constantly look for flaws rather than looking at the many plus points of being on a delightful Island with a developing tourist industry. The menu is simple (are not all the menus at all the restaurants?) and is always an indicator of good food; the service was faster than most of the places where we have dined over the last two weeks and the tuna was hot and served with an excellent ginger and lime sauce. Coffee was good and overall the bill reasonable at EC$ 160 for two

Given some people want the negatives: the dining room has walls of dark painted walls - and the tuna had bones in it!

My wife and I have just returned from a short break at the Kalinago. We loved the room, which was clean and spacious. The beds were very comfortable too. We ate in the restaurant twice while we were there, and meals were tasty and well presented, though not always precisely what was set out on the menu. Morne Rouge beach is just a few yards away, which is clean and lovely to swim in. It's a pleasant walk away from the Grande Anse beach area, which as well as a quite beautiful beach has a shopping centre and and restaurants. You can catch the fantastic dollar buses from there into and back from just about anywhere on the island.

For all these good points though, the Kalinago has some noticeable flaws which detract from the overall package. They have a lovely open-air bar between pool and beach, but for some bizarre reason they insist on playing loud music in it practically all the time, and not nice laid-back reggae which would have been OK (if a little less loud), but sometimes harsh Dancehall-type sounds, 90s R&B divas, full-on stuff from the 80s and so on. I have very wide tastes, but every time we went down there for a drink we would be forced away within a few minutes. It wasn't just us.....the bar was just about always empty or had one or two die-hards. This, I think, is symptomatic of a hotel which just doesn't get the needs of its guests, doesn't try to understand them and therefore doesn't give them what they want, but what the staff as individuals think is right. Guests therefore end up spending time and money away from the Kalinago, which can't be good for the business. I think the hotel management need to give some serious thought to this for the future.

The other flaw became apparent at the weekend during our stay. Morne Beach is, as I said before, beautiful and calm, and the Kalinago sits centrally on the beach. Close by, though, are areas of land which front the beach which are used by locals for a range of functions, from church get togethers to parties. I haven't a problem with that at all. It's great to see. The events can be very noisy though, which is outside the control of the hotel. Saturday was OK, but on Sunday there was a party which went on all afternoon until late into the evening, and the music to this was incredibly loud. The land the parties are held on is adjacent to the right hand side of the Kalinago, when looking from the beach. It must have been very annoying for guests at that end of the hotel. Fortunately, we always travel with ear plugs, so we were able to blot out worst of the noise. As I said, this is outside the control of the hotel, but they need to acknowledge that this might be a problem for some of their guests at weekends. I asked before we went for a quiet room, as I had read on Trip Advisor about noise problems, but was told by the hotel that all their rooms were very quiet. A bit disingenuous perhaps.

I was wavering about whether to plump for 3 out of 5, but am giving a score of 4, as I think this is fundamentally a good hotel, though it could be much better.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the restaurant end.
