After reading many reviews on places to stay in Grenada we chose the Gem knowing there would be some issues. When any review says "I cried when I got there" that is a heads up. The location is lovely, nice beach, calm water. Whenever the cruise ships come in they have a day trip here but it never gets overbearing. It is not walking distance to anything unless you want a workout climbing hills...which isn't bad, however in the heat..ridiculous. If you want to get around you need a car or else you will spend alot in cabs. Now the Hotel...bath towels so thin you can see thru them. Everything in the unit is ancient. You get a bar of soap...that's it, so bring your essentials, which stinks because of the limit when traveling. Beds small and uncomfortable. Shower good. Toilet constantly gets stuck. Nice patio, we had oceanfront corner unit,2nd floor which overlookes a dumpster and roof of nearby Disco...can't really see the beach.Fourth floor would be better. Restaurant...limited. After first day did not eat there at all. Just really poor in need of renovation. It is family owned and obviously they do not put any money into the place. Staff very nice and helpful. Kept the place clean. All in all if you don't want to spend much I guess it is o.k. I do believe there are better choices, however in that price range? What we paid was rediculous $60.00 a night. We spent more eating out every night. We went to the best restaurants and visited the top of the line hotels. Being from New York I may go back one day, not soon...there are too many nice islands closer. As far as "The Gem " we got what we paid for.
