Reviewed January 8, 2013

....as well as check out their Christmas Eve dinner menu. No one was at the bar when we arrived and the bartender was outside the bar so we asked if he was open, he sarcastically looked at us and looked around like “um, yes”. After that he did warm up some and try to make conversation. We decided to have dinner here and arrived in the dining room about 6:45 (dinner “started” at 6:30). They were still vacuuming the dining room and had a buffet set up. We were seated. I enquired as to what was on the buffet and was told, “I don’t know, we’ll see when it’s out”. I really dislike buffets (especially not knowing what the options are) so we left and did not have dinner here. The location is fabulous but I believe the resort may still be working through some staffing and service issues.

My fiance and I spent 6 nights at Kalinago during our first trip to Grenada. We flew from Omaha to Houston to Miami to St Georges. Needless to say we were VERY happy to finally arrive after a full day of travel. Here are our thoughts on Kalinago, in no particular order. :)

Location: The hotel is located a short ride from the airport, but is rather secluded. This was not a problem for us as we were looking for a relaxing vacation.

Beach: The beach is located in a cove which makes the water warm and calm. We spent our days on the beach and most of the time with only a handful of people. The once exception was a day a cruise ship had docked and a Rum Runner dropped off some of the ship guests. Beach chairs are provided at no charge and there are several trees to park under if you need shelter from the sun.

Rooms: Our room was on the middle floor and very clean. We had a small refridgerator we used for keeping drinks and yogurt. The balcony had a beautiful view of the sunset, all balconies are west facing. Rooms were cleaned every day and we always had clean towels and replaced products.

Restuarant: We ate both lunch and dinner at the restaurant and found the food very delicious and freshly prepared. We also tried several other restaurants for dinner and took at cab to each of them. The staff is very helpful and great with recommendations if you want to get out.'

Pool Bar: This is the only place I was a little disappointed with. At night, the bar was always empty so it was uncomfortable to sit down there before going out to dinner or after returning. I also saw a few tourists who were not staying at Kalinago, but were on Mourne Rouge Beach which is only steps from the Pool Bar. Although there is a sign for Kalinago on the beach, they were unsure if they could go and order drinks from the Kalinago bar. The asthetics of the bar could also be stepped up a notch and feature the variety of alcohol more, along with specialty drinks. Our bartender was hesitant to suggest any island/specialty drinks to us even when we begged for suggestions.

Staff: The staff at Kalinago are wonderful! Stacy and the rest of the staff really went out of their way to make our stay special. They knew us by name and were always eager to accomodate any of our requests. During our stay, my fiance popped the question(!) the staff was so generous and setup a special private dinner for us to celebrate. We felt so special and important during our stay!!! Thank you so much to the wonderful staff! :)

We truly enjoyed our trip to Grenada and are already planning our return. The island is very safe, the people friendly, and the food is delicious! I hope in the future more people discover Grenada and Kalinago. It is a very special place.

Room Tip: There is no elevator so if you have difficulty with stairs, request a ground floor room. All rooms h...

It's quite some hike to this hotel, which we rather enjoyed, but it won't be for everyone. The hill out the hotel is 5 minutes of sweating!

The beach on the hotel is pretty nice, though it smelt bad at times and there weren't enough chairs and no umbrellas at all. No drinks service on the beach, which brings me to the biggest problem - service.

There is no service at this hotel and no management. This manifests itself in a number of ways:
- Small things like shampoo and coffee not refilled
- Sheets not changed during the stay - had to ask specifically
- Often no towels available for the beach
- Staff would sit on the beach chair next to you eating lunch, spill lunch down their clothes and then go to the bar to serve you a drink without washing their hands
- Often no-one at the bar at all - would have to go and pour my own glass of water

And as for amenities - non-existant.

- Room Service: (I called a bunch of times and they never turned up)
- WiFi: does not work in-room and is the worst I have ever experienced at a hotel. Don't hope to make a Skype call.
- Tea and Coffee: No coffee machine, though I eventually convinced reception to give me one/
- The hotel restaurant was completely shut during our stay with no warning

The island itself is OK and the Grand Anse beach, a 15 minute walk away is a much nicer beach. It's supposed to be busy in season, but at the end of November, it was quiet. Stay there if you can.

Food was a major problem and there are few good places to eat. You can walk from the hotel to La Luna in 20 minutes, which was OK Italian food. From La Luna you could walk 2 minutes down the beach to the Beach House, which was excellent. The Aquarium is a $20US taxi drive each way and is excellent. Be careful - good food is really expensive on this island, expect $100US a head.

Taxis are not that cheap - $20US to go pretty much anywhere, but they are generally polite and air-conditioned.

So in short - I can't recommend this hotel. Go somewhere else.

Room Tip: Get close to the reception on the ground floor, where you can walk to your room from the beach and h...

Super friendly staff, clean spacious rooms. Breakfast not included - but it is reasonably priced, tasty, and served on a balcony overlooking gorgeous Morne Rouge bay. The resort is literaly on the beach - and with the tropical temperature you don´t even need a towel; jump in the water and let the sun dry you off or hit the shower in your room right away.

You are however dependent on a taxi to get groceries, go the atm or go sightseeing. Still, it is not far from St. George and the taxi drivers are very reliable.

Room Tip: We had a room on the first floor, with direct access to the beach.

First time in Grenada. A beautiful island, we had previously been to Antigua as well as St Lucia, of course many things similar, but the difference with Grenada was that the people - inside and outside the resort - were much more friendly and welcoming, than our experience of the other islands.
The location of the Kalinago resort is very nice on its almost private Morne Rouge beach, the problem is that to get anywhere else, for shopping, eating, whatever, it is necessary to climb quite a steep hill - not something the average person wants to do more than once every few days!
Other than that, the resort was generally clean (although the pool could do with a more regular clean). As already said the staff were excellent, and impossible to mention all but deserving a mention are Christel in the pool bar, and Kelroy, the gardener, maintenance, handyman.
We did a couple of trips, quite expensive, but worth doing to see the island.
The "spicy half day" takes you to the Waterfall, nutmeg station, rainforest etc.
Second was the one day catamaran round the island trip. Unfortunately the weather didn't allow us to go 'round the island' instead we had to make do with up and down the west (Caribbean) coast. A little disappointing but the crew of Carib Cats (Cpt Francis & 1st mate Fedon) did their best to make it a good day, and they succeeded!
Watch out for a vendor on the beach known as Mike - he is a very dishonest man!
There are a few restaurants nearby, though the menus in all are quite limited. That said, if you do find something you fancy, the quality (& quantity) of food is very good. The Boulangerie in Grande Anse is worth a visit.

Just back from our trip to Grenada, our vacation birthday getaway for this year, Grenada
is a lovely place, very countrylike and the beaches are beautiful, my daughters and i stayed
at Kalinago Beach Resort, the hotel rates were quite affordable and it is located on Morne Rouge beach which is a lovely beach that comprise of calm, warm waters and white sand.

We did arrive early from our flight and was promptly checked in, the room was clean, the
beds quite comfortable, the bathroom was large and had enough clean towels for our use,
the room didn't have much of a kitchenette, just a small refrigerator and a counter with some
dishes for breakfast, i requested a microwave and this was brought to our room promptly.
There was also A/C and a ceiling fan to keep the room cool and cozy, the flat screen tv and
other furniture also added a homely touch, the phone in the room didn't work so the staff had to come up to deliver messages but i was a bit disappointed with the view from our
balcony, the view is always important to me so i will give it a seven on a scale of one to ten.
I had requested a room with a great view of the ocean but we were checked in on the second floor at room 10 which is to the northern end of the hotel, our view comprised of some construction and beach front, i couldn't get a good view of the pool either so i tried to focus on the beautiful beach that awaited us.

The staff at Kalinago is quite friendly and accommodating especially Stacy who made us
feel so welcome and at home, the rooms were cleaned daily and the towels replaced with
fresh ones, the pool is a nice size but it should be cleaned more regularly as their were
flying insects in it each time we used it, however it was still relaxing to swim in and the swim
up bar was nice with refreshing drinks at hand, you also get a welcome drink which is non alcoholic upon arrival. There is a restaurant on the premises but i didn't get around to dining there as we ate out the couple times we were out sightseeing, the famous Grand Anse beach is within walking distance, we were given a lot of information on places to go and things to do while in Grenada, by the competent receptionists alanda and Stacy who was quite helpful in that area which made our trip even more fun filled, there are more to see and experience so we will definitely be back.

There really was no major hiccups while staying at Kalingo beach resort, it is nestled a bit away so there is no vending around and the entire beach, pool and hotel surroundings were quite peaceful which added to meaning of a vacation.

Room Tip: The rooms located in the center and on the southern end offer the best views.

My husband and I stayed at kalinago during the carnival season and it was the best .It was our first time to grenada and definitely not the last , we always figured that we well travel and don't go back to the same place, but grenada we got to come back.
The resort is excellent the room are very clean and modernize .The garden are so colorful and beautiful what we really loved while sitting on the balcony.
The staff ; they the most FRIENDLIEST STAFF I have ever seen going out of there way to making us happy. We always travel but the staffs here are a really good asset to the company.
Just to name a few Abby ,lyntia , and christel who talked to us and gave us idea everything about tours and her cocktail is the best I have ever experience. The food at the restaurant is very good . We ate there a few time and we enjoyed it . We went out to other restaurant and enjoyed also.
Kalinago you well definitely she us soon
We loved it
