“Great Place to Relax and Enjoy !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This trip was meant to be for relation and rest. As a 30 room boutique hotel owner in Barrio Amon, San Jose, Costa Rica for the past 23 years, I know the industry. Everything was just great here , from the friendly greeting of the owner, Mike to all of the staff including even the gardener. The food in the restaurant was wonderful with a nice variety every night on the white board. Being called the spice island, the restaurant at La Sagesse lived up to that reputation , using nutmeg and cinnamon in many of their dishes , very tasty. We sport fished one day with Captain Gary on-board Yes Aye and came back with fresh tuna, wahoo, Spanish mackerel and king mackerel, all wonderfully prepared by the staff in sushi appetizers and outstanding plates of different styles. In the morning and at night there are many local expats as well as boaters that come to enjoy a fine meal and it makes for a friendly enjoyable setting , with many times everyone setting at a large table , just eating, drinking and exchanging stories. The beach is very peaceful for swimming and the next bay over , which is a short walk thru the trees at the end of the bay lays a very secluded beach for anyone that wishes to REALLY enjoy nature in a more natural style ! I stayed in a bungalow at the end of the property with the waves lapping almost at the outdoor deck. As clean as it could be and wonderful bedding. I enjoyed several fine cigars here and the view is peaceful . All in all a wonderful, relaxing and peaceful vacation which is what I went for in the first place. Thanks to Mike , his lovely wife and all of the staff at La Sagesse ( by the way this is French for wise ) for an outstanding experience on the Island of Grenada. Thomas in CR

“Favorite place on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Favorite beach on the island, hotel and restaurant on the beach and nothing else. Fairly quiet unless it's a local holiday. Enchanting, wish I was there even today.

“Our third time at La Sagesse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Two weeks ago was our third visit to La Sagesse and it is still a wonderful place. We take a cab and spend the day there on the beach, eating lunch at the restaurant. Service is friendly and efficient and the food is delicious!

My favourite is the seared tuna with salad and their secret recipe Beetroot Dressing (I will one day figure out the ingredients apart from beets!). Hubby doesn't eat fish but there is always something on the menu he likes!

When we were there two weeks ago it was low season in Grenada and for a while were were the only customers but when we left several others had popped in for a late lunch.

The beach is stunning and the water safe and calm. Their are sunbeds if you want one and for a cold beer the restaurant is just a couple of steps away! There's also an outdoor shower to remove the sand from your feet before taking the cab back to your hotel.

We will always spend at least one day of our annual vacation at La Sagesse.

“The monkeys are so fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

As part of our island tour, we stopped at the nature preserve. Much to our surprise, a monkey literally climbed over my husband's shoulder to get to a little kid trying to feed about 4 monkeys. The monkeys are not native to the island, but were brought in during the slave trade. Rain forest is lovely and well worth driving or hiking in.
