“Get away from everything bothering”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Yes, my room was very basic and rustic, and the bathroom sure saw better days, but the bed was comfortable, the view from the private balcony breathtaking, and the staff from gardener to management as sweet, helpful and fun as can be. Cabier Ocean Lodge has only a few rooms, so you get known to the staff and other guests quickly. The beaches are more or less private - on the left of the peninsular mainly for swimming, on the right for snorkling -, and although they are not the biggest with the whitest sand, they are secluded and great to swim. The inhabitants of the local village, Crochu, who come to swim in the evening or over the weekend, are friendly, polite and pleasant to talk to. - The hotel manager also offers tours over the island for a very reasonable price, which is a great opportunity explore the island. He knows everybody and is well liked and respected, which gives you inside of the islanders' lifes you wouldn't get with big sightseeing groups. It is a bit challenging to drive yourself: The streets are narrow and often very steep, and, of course, they drive on the left! - The hotel manager is also a wicked chef! Dinners are very private, prepared exclusively for the announced number of guests. There is no menue, but one 3 course dinner (and he didn't repeat himself once in a fourtnight!) every night, prepared with locally available foods. And it is delicious!
If you want to get away from it all - noise, traffic, stress, internet, and telephone - this is the place to go to! I do have to point out, though, that I was, indeed, the only guest without cell phone and laptop. Most guests bring these electronics, no one complained about bad cell phone reception, however, the internet, sometimes, had its own working hours :-).

Room Tip: Opt for the highter quality rooms!

We have just returned from two blissful weeks at Cabier, a small hotel on the south-eastern corner of Grenada. We were first-timers to the Caribbean, and we were attracted to Cabier for its out-of-the-way position (the bumpy track - an excellent deterrent to mass tourism) and the lure of the excellent food. Our room was vast with a well-equipped kitchenette, but our star attraction was the shady balcony overlooking a few palm trees and Cabier Beach (lovely sand, safe swimming and good snorkelling). A strong wind blew all day and night, keeping us cool and comfortable - and we have returned relaxed and completely chilled, in a way that most of our holidays fail to manage.

The staff are warm, welcoming, and couldn't have done a better job. Bruno and Iris see to the food and business end of things, and Bruno's cooking is excellent - just pray that he does the chocolate mousse when you're there - with a very varied set menu each evening. Cindy lights up the place with her smile, and Florence, Candell and all the guys who help with the gardens and beach are lovely mines of information on flora, fauna, and local life. The beach is always quiet, but rather nicely contains a mixture of locals and Cabier guests - this place is no hotel compound, but it forms part of the community.

We came home having made new friends, both with fellow guests and with the staff, and can't wait to return. Grenada was fantastic and Cabier was a truly lovely place to stay.

we came to Cabier Lodge on a Sunday afternoon and was very warm welcomed. We sat on the very end and was watching the sea, the birds, the waves and smelling the ocean. What a place. You fell calm and peaceful. The Lodge offers a lot for Family with children, like Donkey riding, they have a padding Zoo and the Beach is fantastic for children.
It is really a great place for families.
But I think it is the best place to get back to yourself when you are stressed out. It is far away from everything. Only you , the sea, sun and Iris and Bruno taking care of you.

we find this Lodge, here in tripadvisor and we understand it was what we were looking for our summer holidays in Grenada during Carnival August 2012.
we travel with our son 9 years old and everytime we looking a place nice for him too!
this is Cabier Ocean Lodge, seems to stay in a family, Bruno and his Wife from France are so sweet and professionally.
we eat a special dinners, looking the sea in a beautiful athmosfere..the food supreme because Bruno is a professional teacher cooker.
in this lodge there are a small zoo where every day our son Andrea was busy with all the animals and the funny monkey and beautiful donkey too.
we saw Armadillo , never saw in our life...

the only thing that we can advise, it's for the position fareway from downton need to rent o have a jeep because the wild way to reach the lodge , is full of hole, after that no any other problems.

the staff are very nice and professionally , everyday smiling and with Bruno (professional tour guide too) we went 1 saturday to do haash maratone in the foresta
we enjoy so much with local people and european.
Cabier Ocean lodge will stay in our mind forever!
thank you Bruno!

ciao Cinzia Paolo e Andrea

If you are looking for a more off the beaten track experience of Grenada, rather than sitting on one of the beaches around St George’s (not that there is anything wrong with that, and we were lucky enough to be able to do this as well, and to be honest Grenada is very well set up to try small stays at different locations), Cabier Ocean Lodge is a very good option. Far enough up the West Coast (50 mins from the airport, but only 19 miles), to feel out of town, but not too hard a drive up the winding coast road from the capital (COL does an excellent route guide from the airport, which got us there without a mistake).

We booked one of the rooms with aircon, and were very glad we did, as the humidity was very high when we were there. It was low season, and we were the only people in residence, but the staff were still very attentive, and were able to get the beach chairs out and answer questions when required.

If you drive yourself, you need a jeep, especially if it is wet. The road is not especially tricky, but would not have wanted to try it in an ordinary car.

We did a bit of self-catering, but the breakfast and dinners were very good, especially considering the usual chef was on holiday. There are a couple of other local beaches nearby, but not a lot else to see and do, unless driving much further North up the coast. However, COL is the perfect place to arrive, stay, unwind, relax on the beach, stroke the Donkeys (about 12 live in a reserve on the beach), swim off the gently sloping beach, snorkel on some of the off-shore reefs and cliffs. And generally “Lime”, I think is the expression.

My husband and I were married in June at Cabier and we had the best experience! Bruno and Iris and all their staff went out of their way to make our wedding day and our whole vacation special. From the cake and flowers to the beautifully decorated gazebo and the donkeys-everything was perfect! We stayed in one of the studios at two bays villa for the week, and it was perfect, very quiet with beautiful views. It was so much fun playing with all the animals-Judy the monkey, Rocky and Bella, Cinderella and all the other donkeys. We intented to do self catering for most of our meals, but quickly changed our minds once we tasted Bruno's cooking-it it is the best!! We miss Grenada and Cabier so much and can't wait to go back!
