All-inclusive on Pink Gin Beach with ten restaurants, five pools, and over 40 tropical acres to explore
Spread across 40 landscaped acres on Pink Gin Beach, the 257-room Sandals Grenada feels secluded from the outside world. With five swimming pools, ten restaurants, and six bars, it more than lives up to the expectations of a quiet island escape replete with pampering and active distractions.
The guest rooms have a colonial-era feel that embraces the traditional style of Grenada. Expect wooden jalousie shutters and hand-carved mahogany furniture, including four-poster kingsize beds.
While the resort is the type of place where you could easily laze all day by the pool or on the beach enjoying free premium-label cocktails (yes: top shelf), it’s worth taking advantage of the fitness classes. Yoga, tai chi and meditation classes are included in the rate and are offered daily.
There’s an added incentive for certified divers as well: longer stays get free scuba dives. For non-divers, there’s snorkeling, kayaking, waterskiing, windsurfing and wake-boarding to enjoy, so there’s no excuse not to get on the water. The spa offers several choices of facials, body wraps and traditional massages.
One potential perk of Sandals is the high percentage of European clientele here, particularly Brits. If you’re traveling down from the U.S., you won’t feel as if the rest of the country followed you on vacation.

Review of Sandals Grenada Resort & Spa
Reviewed May 7, 2018
Sandals Grenada is oh so very nice I was assured by the customer service folks at Sandals when I called to inquire about my available points. And why would they say anything else. As a matter of fact Sandals employees are well versed at saying just the right thing to guests, that’s why I was so surprised with the loyalty club at Sandals Grenada.
We arrived around 3:00 on Tuesday after traveling half the day and getting settled and food were like most people our first priority. The desk clerk announced we would like to offer you an upgrade. Having selected a walkout for a very specific reason I was inclined to say no immediately but instead invited my wife to the desk to listen to their offer. “A butler room up there” with a swipe of his hand in the air that covered an entire three quarters of the resort. So It’s either a butter or a walk out? “Oh no, just a butler room, not with a butler.” We originally considered the idea of a butler archaic and not very appealing and decided we would not be interested in those services. It all sounded a little deceiving and he was a little put off when I told him I would rather have the room I originally booked. If you’ve seen the terrain at the resort and you prefer not to have to take on goat like characteristics you might consider a walk-out as well. No “welcome home” from him, but no one is perfect or so we found out.
On Wednesday morning we inquired at the loyalty club about the loyalty (returning guests) dinner. Oh, that was last night; didn’t the front desk tell you when you checked in.?” Do you want to book next year’s trip now?” No and no. “Oh well” we’ll send the gift packet to your room. After confirming our name we left feeling a little put off but at least he seemed to try and make up for it. I mean were not diamond members but he wouldn’t have known that either cause he didn’t bother to check. The dinner was our opportunity to chat with other returning guests and meet staff members as well as donate to the Sandals foundation, what we feel is a worth while cause. “Oh well.”
It was true, this Sandals is beautiful in fact no resort that I’ve ever stayed at has been so meticulously manicured. A tropical paradise. I even found issue with negative reviews about butlers and reservations, we didn’t find that the problems existed. The food is far better than any Sandals we’ve stayed at and the service overall better than the others by quite a bit in every area except one of course. This is not how I wanted to remember the resort but ask yourself if this wouldn’t stand out to you.
After two days of not receiving our gift from the loyalty club we stopped by to chat with a petite young lady (rather than naming her) staffing the office. She defensively advised us that the packet was sent to the room that they had anticipated checking us into (remember the upgrade) and the form she read from said that, that was correct. After explaining that we had opted not to take the upgrade and the packet should have never been sent there. She confirmed that we had in fact been shown the room and declined it (according to the printout) which was not true, but for some reason the desk clerk needed to record our dismissal of the upgraded by saying we looked at it. I asked why they would send it to a room they knew we had declined and her answer was: “either way we’re covered.” That is without a doubt the poorest explanation I’ve ever received from a customer service person for a mistake that inexcusable. An insult. No sorry, no expiation, in fact they weren’t covered no matter how you look at it. They had the correct room number and just blew it. Not what I’d call good hospitality. Sandals please fix this before they do more damage.
Sandals, Grenada is a meticulously clean resort staffed with the friendliest most efficient staff we’ve ever encountered at any resort, Sandals or otherwise. It’s too bad that one office had to not only cost then the donation we would have made but they may have cost Sandals loyal customers as well.
Q: Why do UK guest get 40% discount when booking their next vacation when US and Canadian guest get 12%. See attached photo.
Date of stay: April 2018
Room tip: Besides a 6 story hotel, many rooms are on a rather steep elevation, challenged or lazy folks should steer clear of these rooms.
Sandals Grenada was fantastic we just got back on Sunday night! This was our first time as a Sandals customer, and my boyfriend and I had an absolute BLAST! The food and service at the resort was top notch! We had three AMAZING butlers - Neron, John and Alex and they went above and beyond to help us! They were extremely friendly and just went above and beyond for us! We will miss them for sure! For our room we had a South Seas One Bedroom Butler Villa with the infinity edge pool - it was amazing! I highly suggest that room! Every meal we had was outstanding - Butches, and the French restaurant was our favorite... italian was amazing too! We spent a lot of time at the South Seas pool wth the swim up bar. The staff and service is amazing there as well. They are very friendly and we enjoyed our time there!
Overall, an amazing time! I want to give a huge shout out to our Butlers - Neron, John and Alex!!!!! We HIGHLY recommend! Dragon was also amazing, he was another couples Butler who we had met, and he treated us like his own!
We will definitely be back!
Our third visit to Sandals La Source, and it's as good as ever. Beautiful location, great food, great facilities and fantastic staff. There are plenty of dining options - some where you need to reserve a table, and one where you need to 'dress up' slightly. If you want a quiet, relaxing holiday you can get it at Sandals La Source; if you want a high octane, get involved with everything holiday - you can get it at Sandals La Source! If you're a scuba diver, you'll get some great dives here. The boat leaves the resort at 9.00am for a double-tank dive and is, almost inevitably back at the resort for midday. The dive sites offer opportunities for divers of all levels, and the dive instructors and dive masters are very professional and safe, but are also great fun! The resort is, literally, a 5 minute ride from the airport - really nice after a 10 hour journey - but there is no intrusive noise. We'd have no hesitation in returning for a fourth holiday.
