We have just returned from our best holiday ever. Before going we were a little unsure of the butler service never having experienced it before. We had nothing to worry about - our butlers Ricardo and Orayne made us feel very special and spoiled always there with advice and help when we needed them without being at all intrusive. Our room (Coconut Grove) was lovely and always beautifully clean with the mini bar constantly well stocked with the ice bucket always filled for us returning from the beach. We were running low on coffee one day and asked Orayne if we could have some more. 10 packets later........
The wobbly peacock with Seantastic and Shakin Aiken and Yanque (Yanee) just to name a few was great fun with not only great food but great drinks including my favourite the dirty banana and appleton's rum and ginger beer. Entertainment in the wobbly peacock in the evening was fantastic especially Andre on the piano and with the help O'Shane and Jason as a support act.
Le Papillion French restuarant is superb and the Surf and Turf at the Royal Grill is not to be missed. We also tried the Jamaican restuarant and China Doll at Hillside part of Grand Riveria next door. Both were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed both.
The beaches West and East are scrupulously clean and you are never short of a drink from the beach butlers Cleon, Fiona and Adrian - try the Bob Marley, Cleon will love you for it. :-
All in all an absolutely fabulous resort and holiday with one of the best features being the wonderful friendly staff. Thank you to Mark for suggesting trying the Hillside restuarants and for being so approachable and welcoming. Good luck to Peter Fraser on his new adventure in Grenada.
