We just got back last week from 5 nights at Treetops. We're a couple in our late 20s. It's a restful, beautiful base from which to explore Grenada.
What we loved about Treetops:
1. Pam and Chas. Welcoming (greeted us with cold drinks to enjoy on the veranda after our late night flight arrived), knowledgeable (Pam met with me most mornings over coffee to help plan our days - knows everything about things to do/places to eat on the island and tips), and fun (invited us to join their friends for happy hour at local bar). We learned and saw more about Grenada than we ever would have otherwise. We got lost multiple times driving through the interior but it was part of the adventure, we got to talk to locals to ask for directions countless times.
2. The views. 'Nuff said.
3. The landscaping. Gorgeous flowers.
4. Our room. A study in fitting in everything you need in a small space. A mini kitchenette with microwave, egg poachers, fridge, a cafe press, electric hot water kettle, etc. We LOVED Pam's homemade bread, and our fruit(from the garden)/eggs/cheese was replaced as needed. Making breakfast and enjoying it overlooking the views was one of our favorite memories.
The butterfly room was whimsical and artful, like a cabin with unique touches everywhere you look and it exceeded my expectations. As another reviewer said, not swanky, but peaceful. Wooden floors and walls and bed. Thought we would miss the A/C but we didn't, with enough breezes. Slept with one sheet most nights. Fabulous shower with views. Plenty of towels provided which you hang to dry outside in the breeze. Paula the housekeeper does laundry and dishes and keeps the room tidy. The first night we got there I worried about privacy since you leave the windows open all night for the breeze, but no one walks by your room due to the thoughtful layout of the place.
5. Levera beach (you shouldn't bring valuables, but this was no different for us than other places we've visited, and Pam lets you know where you can leave them)
6. Walking around the property barefoot, including down to the spa. The water temp, not too hot, and jets are perfect.
7. The WIFI was faster than ours at home in NY.
8. Treetops was such a nice break from our usual life that some days we wanted to just stay there -- me, writing and tanning in the sun, my husband reading in the shade.
9. Last but not least, NO biting bugs. We didn't get bit once, which is a rare thing for me. And no creepy crawlies.
What you should know:
1. If you arrive in the evening, I wouldn't do the drive from the airport. Winding roads, sometimes unmarked. Pam can help find someone to drive.
2. Plan ahead for evening meals as options are limited. There's a BBQ if you buy your own fish. Enjoyed The Heights and Aggie's for food, the local bakery, and Petite Anse for drinks overlooking the ocean. Wished we could have tried Helena's but always got there too late in the day.
3. Bring your own shampoo.
4. We rented a car and drove everywhere.
We spent two nights in a fancy villa near Grand Anse after Treetops. Yes it was nice to be able to walk to the beach, but missed the personal touches of Treetops when we were presented with store bought bread, Smucker's jelly, and bad coffee -- nothing like Treetops.
Zero pretense here. We can't wait to come back someday.
