My husband, Jeff, and I have been to Grenada multiple times and have stayed exclusively at LaLuna for the past years.I can't say enough nice things about the facilities, the staff, or the location. It's VERY low key--which we like--and completely relaxing. We take the midnight flight from JFK to get in an extra day, arrive at laLuna, and, if the room isn't ready, eat breakfast and lie out by the pool for a nap. The staff remembers us when we get there and asks about our daughter who has come two or three times with us. The chef comes over to recommend dishes, and when we've eaten there several nights in a row, he has come over to ask if we'd like something not on the menu--and makes it for us. It's small enough that the staff remembers what you like and makes sure you have it. We like to be up on the hill for the view, although it usually takes me a couple of days to get in good enough shape not to have to make a few stops walking back up. They toiletries in the bathrooms are wonderful Italian products, but the best thing about the bathroom is that it's partially open to the outside so that you have a wonderful view while showering and you may have a friendly lizard come in. I noticed in March that the steps had been repainted, there were new towels and "our" room had had minor repairs. The worst thing that's happened to us there was a problem with not enough hot water during prime-time for showers, but we have stayed in the same room for the last 5-6 years and the water was perfect on our last trip (March 2013)!
The rooms are wonderful--really big and a nice combination of low-key and luxurious. I love the colors (vivid Caribbean colors, each room a different color).
There are usually couples from different countries there, with ages from mid-twenty honeymooners to couples in their 70's. (We're toward the 59-60 side). Our daughter and her boyfriend are early 20's and LOVE the place. We like privacy (like to sit out and read, wander around taking photos, etc) and never feel crowded or rushed, although on some cruise ship days, there may be an extra 10-15 people on the beach.. There's no loud music, you can snorkel right there, and there are no children. Some women wear nice dresses at dinner (cruisewear) but I usually wear casual pants and feel fine.
Yes--it's a way from town and the road is unpaved toward the end, but to us, these add to the sense of being away. There's another restaurant within walking distance (a 5-minute walk at night) and others within a 15 minute drive.
If I can help with specific questions, ask!
And if you need a guide to the island (and you should definitely take a trip to the nutmeg processing station, the rum distillery, the rain forest, a waterfall or two, and more), contact Mandoo. He's retired from the British Merchant Marines and has come back to Grenada to guide and to work on conservation and ecology. He's a wonderful source of knowledge about local flora and fauna and is a truly kind person.
