After three weeks traveling between Caribbean islands, Cabier was a welcome respite. Although we thoroughly enjoyed our visits to other islands, we were so relieved to be free of traffic, busy streets, noise and crowds. Like other previous reviewers, we found this lodge to be a retreat of sorts. We were happy to spend most of our time being lazy on the sandy beach or splashing in the warm Atlantic--usually alone, or at most with one other couple. We also found that the configuration of the dining area makes it easy to either interact with the variety of interesting guests, or to remain private. Enjoying a very leisurely meal under the mango trees that shade the outdoor dining, while we lost ourselves in the movement of the water below, was one of the most soothing and luxurious experience we've had. Both of Iris and Bruno are great fun if you take the time to get to know them; but they're also considerate and thoughtful hosts. At the time of our arrival one of us was experiencing some nausea from a meal eaten the previous day on another island. We discussed with Bruno our preferences for some easy to digest, light, vegetarian fare. Without hesitation, he produced dishes that were very tasty as well as beautifully presented. The next day my wife requested fish cooked rare, the way she always likes it. Few chefs dare to serve fish truly rare, in spite of the request, but Bruno's fish was cooked perfectly. From the first taste, my wife declared it the best cooked, most tasty fish she ever had in our many travels to the Caribbean. I had a similar experience with every one of the dishes I had during our stay.

Our room, with a kitchen, was very large, clean and well supplied, with a wonderful view through the trees of the ocean below. The internet connection worked very well. Our first afternoon in the room we both luxuriated in a nap with the balcony door open and the warm ocean breeze and ocean sounds sending us off to sleep. Both of us agreed that our bed was one of the most comfortable we had ever slept on during our travels. (Our preferences lean toward a more firm mattress, rather than mushy or sagging, if that helps you to know why we liked it). The bed was also enormous, so we could be really spread ourselves out. Although there were only occasional mosquitoes at the time of our visit, we really appreciated the mosquito netting draped around the bed-- it promotes more restful sleep, knowing that none of the little monsters will sneak up on you.

Unlike other guests who have reviewed this site, we made a decision beforehand to NOT rent a car this time, and by the end of our five night stay, we were very glad for that. Japal, the driver who picked us up from the airport drove us to the lodge on the first day. By the time we reached the lodge he had offered us a wonderful introduction to the island's history, people, and neighborhoods. Always respectful and never intrusive, he answered our questions fully and often with great humor and personal insights. He lives close to the lodge so it was very easy to arrange for him to pick us up two days later and spend a day driving around the entire island. Along the way, at our request, we stopped at road side fruit stands, small markets, a nondescript but surprisingly good restaurant for lunch, and some interesting, lesser known sites for us to visit. Whether you rent a car or not, we strongly encourage you to spend a day driving around with Japal. During the remainder of our stay, we were only too happy to just be lazy and stop driving around for a change.

My wife declared every day during our stay: "We're coming back here!" I concur.

Typically Caribbean - relaxed, charming and remote - a perfect setting and wonderful food. Amazing views of a secluded bay. One for nature lovers and photographers. Off the beaten track so a car essential.

What a wonderful setting – a small promontory in a secluded bay. It’s fairly remote, so you’ll need a car to get around.
Spacious rooms all have verandas overlooking the beach. The little restaurant and bar face the sea on the other side. Don’t expect an extensive menu, but when it’s all fresh local fish, fruit and vegetables expertly cooked, who needs a menu? The “big breakfast” will set you up for the day (there aren’t that many eating places on this side of the island).
Michael the relief manager was most helpful and attentive, both before (by email) and during our stay, and all the staff made us very welcome – they even managed to find some lobsters for dinner on the last night despite the fishermen having to content with a couple of days of stormy weather.

This was my 3rd stay at Cabier with my student group. Iris and Bruno aided by special assistant Judy the Mona monkey could not have done a better job. The rooms are ever very clean and very roomy. All have special views. The restaurant deck is the social center - the place to meet and greet your fellow travelers from around the world. Dinner with an European flair under the mango trees is remarkable.
Go see Grenada's rugged side. Stay at Cabier!

Stayed: June 2015

Cabier keeps its Caribbean feel and whilst not a luxury hotel, the rooms are charming, the setting and views are amazing and the terrace and great cooking are perfect for long lazy gourmet evenings. Well done to Bruno and Iris for running such a gem of a place. We hope to return!
