We stayed at the Bluebay lodge for two weeks at the end of February (2010) and it would be no exaggeration to say it was the holiday of a lifetime.
Met on arrival by the whole staff team , we were soon sipping rum punch prepared by Barman Danny and finding out more about what to expect from our holiday.
Bluebay is beautifully situated overlooking the sea and is on the main bus route to St Georges. We used the buses almost daily and really enjoyed the experience of mixing “intimately” with the local people.
Everything was done to make our stay special including a weekly barbeque with the owner, staff and family and an island minibus tour again with the owner,staff and family. On our second Sunday we were treated to a special menu of traditional foods which again was shared with the owner staff and family.
Danny the barman and Vanessa the maid joined us as guides on several day trips which really proved invaluable to finding the real Grenada.
The highlight of the holiday was arriving by fishing boat at a local beachside restaurant to watch the sun go down, after a day of relaxing under palm trees on BBC beach.
We would highly recommend Bluebay lodge and Grenada as a destination.
