“Romantic hideaway tower overlooking the Caribbean Sea”
Reviewed 15 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We chose Sugar Mill Tower because we wanted something really different, having been to Grenada several times before, mostly in resorts. The mill is just charming and full of character. It is very private, quiet, homely, and set right by the sea so you can hear the waves at night. Many features make it really special: there are attractive aged wooden floors throughout and a wonderfully romantic round bedroom occupied by a huge vintage style four poster bed. There is also a second double bedroom with its own bathroom, so plenty of room for four adults in comfort.

The middle deck offers wonderful views across Prickly Bay and there is a look out at the top of the tower with dining table and chairs; just perfect for a cocktail whilst watching the Caribbean sun sinking over the horizon.

The lower deck is an inside-outside sitting area (so no front wall facing seaward) with sofas, attractive floor lamps, rugs and a dining table and chairs. Adjacent is the kitchen with breakfast bar although we generally chose to eat outside. The pool is small, but enough for a cooling dip and to accommodate my blow-up pool lounger.

We do suggest the use of a hire car although there are some restaurants and bars within a bit of a walk.. We used the car rental company Parkeys suggested by the property manager and they were first class with a decent 4x4 featuring good tyres and a full windscreen washer bottle, which is not always the case in the Caribbean! Petrol stations are numerous and there is plenty of parking at the tiower, but note there are about 40 steps from the parking area down to the tower entrance.

Lance Aux Epines (pronounced Lance Epeen) is a very upmarket peninsula in the South-East of the island with many luxurious villas. It is a very "happening" place if you want some distractions from just relaxing at home, eg there is live music and food every Friday night at the local yacht marina which is frequented by locals and ex-pats. There are also five other restaurants/bars reasonably close by which open on various nights of the week.

The capital St George's is about 10 - 15 minutes' drive away. There is a mini market at the yacht marina although we generally drove to the IGA big supermarket about 10 minutes away which stocks most things you need including quite a lot of imported (and therefore expensive) goods. But note that fresh milk and real orange juice often runs out early so it's good to buy when you see it.

We were recommended by the property manager to the local dive company Scubatech and went on a whale watching trip and were lucky enough to see not one school but two. An amazing day.

The tower is set in the glorious grounds of a large Colonial-style house and the gardens are immaculately maintained with a profusion of flowers, so there was always some for the breakfast table each morning. There were also huge green iguanas in the garden which were a delight to watch. Just like having your own TV wildlife show on tap!

We made use of the kayaks and paddled round the bay. There is also a minuscule beach in the grounds (depending on low water) and a long dock with a shady hut halfway which was nice for a lunchtime drink or watching the sun go down. There is a huge pale golden sand beach at Grand Anse, near the big supermarket shopping complex, which stretches for a mile and a smaller beach at Lance Aux Epines although no facilities unless you go to the hotel next door. Lots of other beaches all over the island.

We found there were too few shaded areas at the tower but the owners are looking into installing a sail shade which will make a huge improvement.

Lastly but very importantly, the property is exceptionally managed to very high standards by the American manager Treva and her team. Nothing was too much trouble and she gave us lots of advice that helped us get the most out of our stay. A very professional, knowledgeable and charming host.

We cannot recommend Grenada highly enough: it's people are warm and friendly, we have always felt safe even in town and driving around in pretty remote countryside, and the community is very vibrant. It's the nearest place to paradise!

“Amazing spot in Prickly Bay, quirky, comfortable and interesting”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed here for 5 nights at the end of our honeymoon and loved it. The tower overlooks beautiful Prickly bay, and offers a really original alternative to hotel accommodation, is comfortable and accessible with an amazing view.
The tower is part of Lance Aux Epines House, a large villa, and therefore if there are people styaing there too, you will notice their presence, but we did not find this invasive.
The pool is small but perfect for a quick dip, and you can swim off the dock which has steps.
The villa host was extremely helpful and arranged everything from groceries to car hire to turtle watching for us.
The location is brilliant, although you do need a car (we found driving in Grenada fine, just keep your wits about you!), 5 minutes to the shops, 5 minutes to Grand Anse beach, and a quick drive to a few excellent restaurants, including the Calabash which we also Kayaked to.
The tower is located in a beautiful garden, we saw iguanas roaming around, amazing birds, the only thing was the mosquitos which were pretty bad but that was the same everywhere on the island and was more to do with the time of year.
We had a gorgeous meal cooked for us on our arrival night, and also did some cooking ourselves - there is a BBQ to use, and the kitchen is fine.
The tower is not 5* luxury, but it is so charming that it didn't matter to us.
We would highly recommend this to people who are looking for something really original, a little on the rustic side and a little bit off the tourist track.

We have visited The Sugar Mill twice and have found it to be an enchanting lovely place. The mill is very comfortable and the views are wonderful.
Samina family and Josie the dog just add that special touch.
