We stayed at Laluna in April which seemed a good time of the year to visit Grenada. The prices tend to fall a little and the weather is still lovely. We chose Lalune because we like small quiet hotels. It has only 16 rooms so much of the time you seem to have the resort to yourself. The rooms are spread up the hillside and you get valuable exercise up and down the steps. Our room was a semi-detached villa about half way up the resort and had a fantastic view. It was also very spacious with a large terrace which was lovely to lounge on in the evening. The big four poster bed was very comfortable and had pure linen sheets which seemed a bit rough to the touch at first but were fine for us. Don’t expect a marble bathroom – Laluna is not like that. The rooms could be called simple but are so spacious that you have a settee for lounging inside and another outside.
The restaurant operates to a relaxed schedule. Breakfast can be ordered up until early afternoon and overlaps with lunch which can be taken until mid-afternoon. The restaurant staff just have a break between 5-7 before the dinner service. Breakfast is a-la-carte which makes sense for so few guests. There is a great range of options or just ask for what you would like. Other meals are basically Italian which we loved. There is lots of fresh seafood and do not miss the Seafood Risotto – its world class. We booked half-board which allowed us to choose anything we wanted at breakfast and dinner and which seemed good value compared with the a-la-carte prices.
Laluna is slightly remote from other beaches and restaurants. A taxi will set you back 25US$ each way. The only restaurant within walking distance is the Beach House about 200m away. Thats good to try for a change from Italian food.
The staff at Laluna are terrific. You will be well looked after and don’t miss happy hour and a Laluna Mist cocktail while the sun goes down.
Downsides? Snorkelling at the resort is not very good but is amazing elsewhere. Spa has little or no "spa ambience"....
If you are looking for a quiet, romantic hotel that is nothing like the big “all-inclusives” that seem to be all over the Caribbean – try Laluna.
Oh, and by the way Grenada is a lovely place. Friendly people and amazing plants and wild life. Take the rain forest trek with Lennox to the waterfalls – its really good. Turtles laid eggs on the Laluna beach while we were there and during breakfast an Osprey flew by with a fish in its claws....oh, and the humming birds….you get the idea…
