With a view of the Caribbean largely formed via movies and 1980's Bounty adverts, I did not know what to expect of Grenada.
Upon arrival at Blue Bay Lodge it became clear that we had truly landed on our feet with perhaps the friendliest proprietor you could hope for.
Lisette cares not only about those that stay with her at Blue Bay but also what they think of Grenada, hence her personal involvement in our holiday, from arranging waterfall excursions to taking us into the local town and introducing us around.
Blue Bay Lodge is made up of rooms that make you feel like you are visiting a friend, warm (or cool if you need the aircon) and comfortable, everything you could need for a room that you should be only be spending time in to sleep on this fantastic island.
When we dined in, we did so with the other guests and Lisette on local specialties such as "oil down" and of course more types of fish than you could think of.
Blue Bay is not for the 5 star hunting hotel lingerers, it is for those of us who are more adventurous and are the type that leaves with another firm friend and a feeling that we actually experienced Grenada. A high recommendation from us, my parting words in the Lodge visitor's book "it was like staying with a member of the family" couldn't be more appropriate.
