We had some questions about this hotel because of earlier mixed reviews, but decided to book it because of it's location on Grand Anse beach, and because our daughter wanted pools as well as beach. We are so glad we did!
Our daughter was right about the pools. Large and beautifully landscaped, as were the entire grounds. The resort is beautiful, not fancy, just beautiful, with a friendly, relaxed vibe. The beach was so much fun, just pull up a sun chair under the sea grape and almond trees! We took a short spin on a boat pulling a raft and snorkeled off the beach for shells (fish, not so much). The few vendors were generally friendly and polite.
We are convinced we had the best room on the island. Fourth floor Executive Beach Front .(Thanks to Georgette Davies for helping us move there from the third floor.) The rooms in this building are not yet renovated, but they are large. We were just fine for a week -( my husband, myself and our 18 year old daughter) with 2 double beds, without the expense of booking a suite. The fourth floor really made a difference, because the balcony is so open to the sea and the sky. I could barely go to sleep at night, just wanted to watch the lights twinkling from St George.
We saw another beachfront room and the renovation was certainly nicer, but it was a lot smaller, and we liked the more private location of the executive building too.
The staff is friendly and just really sweet and welcoming. Thanks to Rondell and Trevor who were so kind to us when we first arrived and discovered we had left our passports at the airport!
We found it was best to make our own plans regarding tours, restaurants, etc.
We ended up going on a half day tour up the coast to Belmont Plantation with a local man we met on the beach (Alban Flectcher 419-6514, 459-5263) and had a good time. We had rented a car but did not like driving on the hilly coastal roads with opposite side steering.
The major drawback at this resort is the food. Therefore 4 stars instead if 5. We had lunch twice, and the food was just bad. A real shame, as the resort has numerous beautiful indoor and outdoor eating spaces. It would have been nice to enjoy a meal there. (tip, for lunch while at the beach, the Grand Anse Craft and Spice Market is right next door, next to the dive shop. There are food stalls - try Doltrice Lunches for great roti and a lovely owner/cook).
The restaurants we found (The Edge, Aquarium) were just steps from the water, with really good food. Also had a good time eating local dishes, tapas style at Patricks.
We had a wonderful vacation in Grenada and are so happy that we chose the Radisson Grand Beach Hotel. Stay here!
