“Relaxing getaway with old world charm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

The Grand View is a relaxing place: nice comfortable spacious rooms in a relaxing environment. There were plenty of staff around to sort drinks and show visitors around. There's an "old world" charm to the hotel that's lacking in chains or even boutique hotels: sash windows (that don't open!) and old-style flush loos.

Minor gripes? If you eat here note that a service charge is added to your bill automatically at the end of your stay if you charge food and drinks to your bill: you're not told this. Tea and coffee making facilities in-room were missing. And the path down to the Grand View Grill resuarant is steep and unlit with a shaky path.

This place is decent. The management charged $2.00 to print out 2 airline boarding passes, which is absurd. I've stayed at many places where this was complimentary, so this automatically turns me off. The staff is pleasant although when I asked if the tip was included at one of the restaurants the waitress told me no, so I gave her a $12.00 tip. Next day I found out by another waitress that I would be charged a 10% service fee for all the waitress staff. There is no bar swim up bar. Rooms were so so mattresses need to be replaced. No hot water for showers. View was nice.

Very friendly staff, average restaurant for pizza on property with reasonable prices and that is what the food tax is all about when you book over the internet - nothing gourmet. Rooms - older fixtures & plumbing but clean and comfy - great view and good US TV reception. We would go back as a very pleasant stay. Wireless internet only in outer lobby.

The staff was most gracious arranging taxis and side trips. The view was outstanding, room was clean and the price was right. I noticed some other posters mentioned water pressure. Mine was fine. Unfortunately I wasn't there long enough to enjoy the pool. The grounds are beautiful and I spotted some hummingbirds at the flowers.

Rooms were very spacious with great views. The staff were amazing, providing excellent service in a friendly and cheerful manner. The only minor comment was that the windows did not open and we found the ac a little overpowering. Opening windows and ceiling fans would have been nice. I believe some rooms did have this.

My husband and I stayed at the Grand View November 2012. It is a truly magnificent, historic property with (as the name says) amazing views. One of the things I really appreciate about the hotel is the true Caribbean flair it radiates! From the open courtyards, to the fun Caribbean colors, the hotel truly does this area and St. Vincent justice. The rooms are a bit dated, however they were charming, clean, and comfortable. I did not try the WiFi in the hotel. The staff was very friendly, pleasant, and helpful, while the staff in the restaurant by the beach were fun and cordial. Food was terrific! I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Very pretty hotel on the top of a small hill jutting into the bay on St. Vincents Island. The views are Grand and the staff very accommodating. The room was comfortable and the restaurant served good food. Only complaint was poor water pressure in the shower. Reasonably price, good service and a smile everywhere you went.
