“The name describes the appartments”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

After reading previous reviews we initally only booked 4 nights at the gem before departing for Carriacou and decide to book a further 7 nights on our return . Julia the manager and her staff could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable . The appartment was very clean and spacious with a lounge, Kitchenette and bedroom ,although the furniture and decor where a bit old, the location and veranda made up for that. Our towles where lovley and soft and changed daily and the bed was really comfortable, we have stayed in 5* hotels with less comfortable beds . The only downfall is the Friday night disco although you dont hear the people or the music but the drone of the beat can be heared, but it was only 1 night. The beach is the best on the Island and very safe swiming.

Room Tip: we stayed in a sea view number 8

Stayed at the gem for 2 weeks and WOW i must say this is a spectacular resort for its 2.5 star rating and reasonable price!! The staff and management are incredibly friendly,honest, helpful and a pleasure to be among. Always smiling!!!

The room was beach front, clean, and everything was working up to standards. The kitchen was fully equipped and some days I just had a nice 15 min stroll to the local supermarkets and stayed in and cooked.

The restaurant meals were superb, however I would have liked to have more local options.

The resort is situated on what i would consider to be one of the best beaches I have visited whilst on my stay. Very peaceful safe and calm beach . Locals on the beach very helpful and loved their local art and craft.

There is a nearby club but surprisingly my sleep was never interrupted by it. And I am easily awakened at nights!

I have now discovered an escape heaven and would definitely recommend the Gem.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a good 2-3 star resort, I would definitely recommend Gem

Stayed at the gem for 2 weeks and even though there were problems initially (with lack of hygiene and poor cleaning) really enjoyed my stay. The staff were very helpful and if you found anything not to your liking they would do their best to change it. The rooms are very large and even though most of the furniture is either ancient or broken, it really did not bother me as its only a two star resort and the problems was fixable. The place is dated, but because the rooms are large this for me compensated that fact. Awesome location for a property, and quite possibly the best swimming beach on the Island. Night club next to accomodations and restaurant Fantasia is really noisy at times (especially fridays), so expect to be kept up til the wee hours then. Negatives aside, Great Island with heaps to see and do. Abundance of cheap eateries; Nutmeg, Andels restaurant, above supermarket next to bus station and Spiceland mall have lots of cheap choices. Really expensive for what you get is BB's on the waterfront.
Travelling by bus is really cheap and one can go nearly everywhere if you are prepared to either offer the driver a little more or walk the difference.
Highlights are: Belmont Estate and the cheese and chocolate factory.
Bathways and Levera beaches which are truly beautiful
A drive round the coastal sides of the Island
And of course Grand Etang

Room Tip: choose top floor for views

Vacation was perfect. Place was clean, staff was helpful and friendly. Food was fantastic,especially when dining and overlooking the lovely bay. Morne Rouge Bay is heavenly. This is indeed a paradise.

The trip was absolutely perfect I can say! The island was full of enjoyment with friendly lovely natives. We arrived on a hot sunny day and as soon as we got of the plane and arrived at the hotel, my family and I were greeted with cool refreshing fruit punches. I must say if you've heard of the life on the Caribbean, Grenada is the one to be! From the unpolluted unspoiled environment, rivers, beaches, nature walks, to night life, all Great! Staying at the Gem was like putting the icing on the cake. The warm welcoming hospitality, the constantly smiling faces, the great room service( I mean not once did we have to come back to an unclean room, fresh sheets and towels daily). The staff looked after us well, ensuring we were as comfortable as possible, well informed so we never missed a bright moment in our holiday, advice on the local heritage and must see's! On top of that a hotel could never been more brilliantly situated on its own private tropical bay with such warm water and white sand. It was like a paradise in a paradise!! Every day the kids woke up they would jet down to the beach as if it were the only thing that existed. The food was absolutely delicious. I was no stranger to Caribbean food prior this trip but the attention to detail and just the mouth watering taste of the food, we dined no where else! In the words of the locals 'Big Up to the Chef! And the entire team at the Gem Hotel. You made our time incredible... Already planning our next trip!!!

Room Tip: The ocean view rooms are stunning. At morning, sunset, all day perfect. I'm sure the other rooms...
