We spent a week at Swallow cottage in November 2007. All the cottages are located yards from the beach in a parkland setting. They are much as described below: spacious and well equipped (if you must have a TV you are probably missing the point). A nice feature was a living room/kitchen that is effectively open to the beach, apart from mosquito protection. This gives an amazing view/feeling every time you enter the room.

Again, I don’t want to repeat what has already been written below but we agree that the staff (Tim, Thaneia and Ann) were very friendly and helpful. Most importantly for us they managed to maintain the balance between being available for queries and being overly intrusive.

In particular we liked the well thought out small touches and extras that are included at no cost (local phone calls, light laundry, Safe deposit, watersports etc). It’s not a huge deal but friends staying in an adjacent “top 5” resort were worn down mentally and financially by expensive extras, all with an additional 18% tax/service charge.

You can’t compare like for like but if you are looking for beach side self catering accommodation it’s a perfect antidote to the all inclusive mega resorts and at significantly less cost.

We stayed at the cottages for 2 weeks in early March, and had an excellent time. The cottages, and the apartments are very spacious, and comfortable.
We have stayed in the cottages at least 4 times in the past, some stays of 6 weeks.
The maid service provided is good, and all the staff are helpful and friendly.
There are several good restaurants, and bars within walking distance.
The swimming in the sea is safe.

We spent a week in December, not Christmas, and we expected fairly good accommodation according to the rates we were expected to pay. We were disappointed in the type of accommodation which we received. At these rates you would think that they would at least provide cable TV in the cottages or apartments, but this isn't the case. If you should wake up as we sometimes do in the very early morning, what is there to do but look at the walls or read a novel. We really missed that entertainment feature that most hotels in this price range do provide. They had a games room with a wide television screen which we shared with the other guests but this was locked up at night until daylight. The beach is shared with Calabash Hotel and it is very nice but swimming with weeds on the bottom is not our thing. I have to say that the staff were very nice and well trained. The property is well maintained but is no better than I can find in northern Ontario in Canada for a lot less money. I enjoyed the short walks to bars and restaurants, but I think Lance Aux Epines Cottages could provide more features such as fully air conditioned and cable TV for the money they ask.

We enjoyed the LAE cottages - it is a relaxing setting, right on the beach. The cottages are spacious, with good kitchens, dining area, screened-in porch, well maintained, comfortable - simple, just right for the beach. Was a bit buggy when we were there - but very manageable with repellent. The beach is attractive - great for small kids - with a gentle surf. The water was not crystal clear and there were numerous sailboats docked off the shore, but still made for an excellent beach spot, with plenty of shade, if desired. The location is good - with decent restaurants in walking distance - car could be useful for touring and food shopping/restaurants, but not needed. Staff is friendly. Free use of kayaks/paddleboats and game room is a plus. Would stay there again.

Was most impressed with how friendly Grenadians were - race relations seemed better here than anywhere I've been. Enjoyed Grand Etang forest visit and visit to La Sagesse Nature Center (beautiful undeveloped beach). Get taxi driver Boney (connected to La Sagesse) to take you to Grand Etang - he has an "in" with the monkeys there.

Island's recovery from Hurricane Ivan in 2004 has been remarkable - relatively few signs of damage to the untrained eye.
