“HOSPITALITY AT ITS BEST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Hello Debbie and Francis! I will always fondly remember the absolutely fantastic week we spent at your hotel in August 2013. Your location turned out perfect for us. You made it possible for me to get a rental car when everyone else said it was impossible during the busy carnival week. Thank you so much for taking care of my teenage son in so many ways, including feeding him and taking him to the carnival!. It was nice to be able to stroll over to the nearby magically beautiful Groom's beach in the early morning. Coming in and going out of your hotel felt like home with your readiness to meet every need; you guys truly represent the best of Grenada. Without reservation, we will certainly come again and recommend your hotel whole heartedly. Best wishes and lots of love always, Karis and son, Ethan.

Room Tip: Roof top room was nice -- great view and cool breezes

Thank you for all your kind comments. So nice hearing from you! We also enjoyed having you both here with us. I enjoyed having your son around, as I had just dropped off my son in the UK to finish his schooling, I missed him very much, so your son was like my son. Glad you enjoyed your stay and we are also looking forward to seeing you soon again. I am glad that I was able to help you with a car.

Take care, see you soon

Regards

Debbie and Francis

Located not far from the airport, walking distance for us but perhaps not others, Le Heliconia provided us with everything we needed during our one day stop over in St George's.

Debbie made us feel very welcome, was friendly and gave us any advice for which we asked. We arrived quite late (9:30pm) to a warm welcome, introduction and suggestions where to go locally to eat, something we did not expect her to do at at time of night!

The rooms were large, like an apartment, with separate bedroom and kitchen area. And for the value was exceptional. The room was clean, quiet (we had a front room along the road to the airport) and were not disturbed at all. Breakfast on the upper balcony was basic fare but quite good.

A bit away from St George's town centre and Grand Anse beach, but within 5 minutes walk to a beautiful secluded bay (which harbours a number of restaurants and resorts/bars), Le Heliconia is a pretty good place to stay. If you want a Caribbean resort stay right on the beach, this is not the place for you. However if you want value for money, don't mind spending 5-15 minutes driving or walking to get to the town centre and beaches, Le Heliconia offers a good alternative.

We could not fault this hotel and would stay there again

Despite being so near the airport, the Helliconia is just a few minutes walk from a great beach; restaurant (the Beach House is one of the island's best) & a fun bar with live music. Our room and veranda were lovely and cool. Good breakfast but we didn't manage to try one of their renowned burgers. Debbie & 'Bishop' made us feel like old friends and gave us lots of useful, insider information about the island and Carriacou.We've already highly recommended to our local friends and others we met on our travels.

Room Tip: We weren't disturbed by traffic, even at the front of hotel (which has best views)

My husband and I enjoyed the accommodation and the personal attention of the owners, Debbie and Bishop. The personal interest they both take in your visit is very refreshing and a reflection of the Island people. We stayed there at the beginning of our trip and on our way back to the airport. This rounded off our trip with many fond memories.
We had two different rooms and both were very clean and well maintained.
We appreciated the use of the kitchenette as we did desire to prepare our own food, as to food allergies.
The excellent personal contact by email, when booking is what sealed the deal as we made our plans to visit the north side of the island.
The car we rented was IDEAL, well maintained and very good value.
We truly appreciated the personal service of a ride to the airport.

Thank you for making us welcome accommodating our vehicle needs. That is a real bonus.

Room Tip: The rooms on the upper level have high vaulted ceilings with an airy feel to them. Excellent value f...

Hi Sue, Thank you very much for your kind comments. We truly enjoyed having you both stay here with us. Glad that you found the kitchenette very handy for your cooking needs. We always try to give our customers value for their money. Having a car rented from us also made getting around even easier for you as you had lots to do back and forth.
Looking forward to welcoming you both soon.

Kind Regards

Debbie

We had a wonderful stay at La Heliconia. It has the perfect location. The rooms are spacious and clean. The kitchen is fully equiped. If you do not want to cook or to go out for dinner, then you should have a taste Debbies cheeseburger, delicious! Like all the other food she prepare. Good prices for the food. Breakfast was fine. Heliconia also has the best prices for a rental car. And the cars look perfect. We felt very welcome at La Heliconia. Thank you Debbie for your warm personality and hospitality!

I had business to in Grenada and was realty frustrated with the manner in which my flight arrangement were coming out (delays and rescheduling)
I went online to find a hotel which is the airport, has with professional and courteous staff, and had provided a personal touch.
This I found at La Heliconia. A lovely family operated hotel operated by Debbie and Francis Bishop the owners who made my experience in Grenada a very pleasant and relaxing one, from my online booking Debbie was there to my arrival where I met the unassuming Francis.
Very knowledgeable re their history, cultural and current happening and always has time to provide advice and information. Debbie's logistical skill-sets were indeed impressive as it relate to working out ground transportation, meals and recreation.

The accommodation was very ideal with A/C, Wi/FI, Cable TV, lovely balcony view, clean sheets and towels, kitchenette and lounging area, lovely indeed. There are no internal phones so one will have to go to front desk for all things, no pool, but they have a view to die for, and the attitude of their staff provided a very relaxing atmosphere.

Room Tip: Ask for the upstairs rooms with the sea few

My boyfirend and i just stayed at la heliconia and we were both very impressed!! The cost of the stay was very reasonable, the hotel is in a fantastic location - very close to the airport, main town and the most spectacular beach! The facilities in the room were very good, supplying everything you could need for an apartment holiday. In particular it was the staff that made la heliconia. Debbie and her husband should be proud of the atmosphere they create with thier bright and bubbly personalities. Thier knowledge of the island is priceless and they were always offering any advice that could make out holiday better. I would love to stay with them again as I can honestly say they made us feel as comfortable as if we were staying with family, it was a pleasure to meet them and to stay at la heliconia, I would stay again in a heartbeat!! A very relaxing and enjoyable place to stay that left us feeling refreshed and revitalised. Thank you.
