“A place to stay...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2008

Last February, I was flying to Grenada and needed a place near the airport to spend one night. I was looking for an inexpensive, not frills place to crash before moving to a marina the next day. I found the Candle Glow Apartments through a Trip Advisor Search. The place appeared relatively new, clean and inexpensive, so I decided to make a reservation.

I made the reservation on line. At the time, I think the reservation went through a European Agency. Anyway, when I made the reservation, I ended up getting double booked; however, a quick return email to the agency resulted in removal of the second booking. I also included a note to the owners that I would be arriving late on American Eagle.

I arrived in Grenada about 21.00 and it was after 22.00 when a taxi dropped me at the Candle Glow. We drove in through a narrow road, past a repair shop and up a narrow street behind (?) the apartments. There were no lights, no signs and no directions to the office. I finally found someone to ask where the office was and was told it was in the house up on the hill. I hiked up the hill in the dark with my luggage in tow and found the owners. They evidently didn't get the note about my late arrival, figuring I was a no show, but were very friendly and walked down the hill to show me my room.

The room was a plain, single room with no frills and no tv, phone, etc. The room was new and clean. It was cool enough outside that opening the windows made it comfortable sleeping. The walls and door were thin and sounded like other tenants were in my room. The owner's dog spent a lot of time barking outside my door.

The next morning I climbed the hill again to check out. The credit card machine wasn't working so I had to pay cash. The owners were a nice couple and we spent some time talking.

I would probably stay there again under the circumstances, as a place to crash and move on the next day. It would probably be okay for a long term stay. I think there were a lot of medical school students staying long term there.

It is not really "near" anything. It is two or three blocks to stores and restaurants, a half mile to the "mall" and a mile or so to Grand Anse.

  • Liked — Inexpensive, close to airport and marina.
  • Disliked — Trying to find where to check-in in the dark.

I stayed here for a month while I looked for more suitable accommodation. I don't like living where many apartments are, and this one had a few, rented out to students who are louder than I would like, though relatively speaking they are not that loud.

The owners are a retired couple who lived overseas for many years. They are very detailed with the billing so everything is clear cut.

The one bedroom apartment was clean, airy, cool and well laid out. If you are a temporary lodger, note that it does not have appliances, towels ETC, unless you are staying in the studio I think. Good thing I had checked ahead of time what they had so I could bring essentials with me.

The apartment is just near the entrance to Lance Aux Epines so very convenient for the buses, and it is also close to one supermarket, and a plaza which has a fruits and veggie shop and a cinema.

  • Liked — Clean and airy, also the owners are very nice people
  • Disliked — That it was basic and did not have many amenities
