“A Memorable Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

My wife and I spent three days here and would definitely go back. This hotel, perched on a high bluff surrounded by water on three sides, has one of the best views in the Caribbean. Bequia and other islands could be seen from our room, and the view from the pool area is truly panoramic. Our room was exceptionally clean, inviting and comfortable. The staff was friendly and attentive. Very good meals at both the hotel and beachfront restaurants.
A great place to un-plug from the world for a while.

The best about this hotel is the view, it is really beautiful. It has not only grand views to the beaches side but also good views to tyhe airport side. The hotel isn´t new but has some charm. The major downside is the location. Yes, the views are great but if you don't have a car you will depend on taxis because walk on the road isn't a good option. The hotel has two restaurants. The beach restaurant, the Grand View Grill is very good. The other one, inside the hotel buiding is very expensive and the food is bad. The staff is very good, always doing everything to get the customers satisfaction. It has in room cable internet, but wireless is just on the lobby. There is no fridge in the rooms

Room Tip: The rooms nearest the pool have the best views

I stayed for one night on a business trip; upon arrival (late - 11pm?), I would have liked a drink/light meal but the entire hotel was shut down. In fact, there was no receptionist, rather two security guards who checked off my name, gave me a key, and told me to report back in the morning for a proper check-in.

The layout of the hotel is literally like a boarding house, with rooms scattered throughout. My room was on the second floor, and, like all the other unoccupied rooms, was wide open. The downside to this is that I spent the first half and hour chasing down moths, flies, etc. before I could settle in and catch some sleep.

The rooms are 'named', not numbered, and are styled in a style I suppose you could call 'contemporary victorian'. They've tried to stay 'vintage', but it goes a bit too far in the (spacious) bathroom with the mirror's silver backing falling off. Bed was comfortable and closet was large. TV was a 19" tube.

Morning breakfast was served in a quaint common room on the first floor overlooking the ocean; quite beautiful and the food was well-prepared. Coffee was hot and strong.

A couple hours later, bar service was in order and the two gentlemen at the bar were friendly and accomodating. Drink prices were reasonable and the beer was ice cold.

Checkout was easy; however I haven't seen a hand-written bill with carbon paper copies for quite some time now. I paid with my credit card in local currency since some quick math told me that the hotel was taking a few percentage points on the exchange when I was offered to pay in USD.

Overall, a good experience. Given the limited choices of quality hotels on the island, I would probably stay here agin.

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.
