“Best place for independent travellers to Grenada!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2007

First, I want to recommend everyone to come to Grenada. It is a lovely island offering various possibilities to everyone. And almost the most secure place in the world as local people are the friendliest I have ever seen...
Secondly, I want to recommend to stay at the Blue Bay Lodge at Mount Nesbit. This place is perfect for independent travellers, solo travellers or for everyone who does not like the fuss in big and expensive hotels.
The lodge is situated at the hill of Mount Nesbit in the very green forest of banana and mango trees. You will be around 20-25 min from the capital of St Georges. You will be very close to Gouyave, the city famous for Fish Fridays, close to Concorde Falls - a beatiful place which is a must in Grenada. You will be approx 30 min from the most famous island's beaches - BBC, Grand Anse etc. And you will be very close to sea anyway as it is only 10 min walking to the nearest beach....And anyway you will enjoy taking the buses in Grenada as it is fun!
You will get a very spacious and a very clean room with everyday hot water which is not a very common thing in Grenada. You will get an excellent breakfast or dinner arrangement depending what you want. You will get the best recommendations from Lisette who runs the house and who would arrange for you all the local attractions. All the staff are nice and friendly so I am sure you will enjoy the stay there as I had.
In summary, travel to Grenada and stay in the Blue Bay Lodge...
