Spread across 40 landscaped acres on Pink Gin Beach, the 257-room LaSource 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 to come to LaSource: 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 LaSource 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.
How to Get There
We loved this resort, the dive shop, and some of the staff. But there was about 90% that was just annoyed to help us. The bar at the pool on Father’s Day where the activities were, had 1 bartender for a couple hours. He couldn’t keep up. The other women bartenders just didn’t ask what you wanted, you had to get their attention and they were bothered to make any drinks.
The food was great. We didn’t get to go to Kimonos or Butchs because we couldn’t get reservations within the first 2 nights. The French restaurant is the only one you have to wear long pants.
This place could be so much better if the staff wanted guests to be happy or if we could tip them!
We just got back from a weeks vacation and we absolutely loved this property. It was our 6th. Sandals experience. The staff, food and service was great. The property itself was well maintained with beautiful shrubbery & flowers. We stayed in the Italian Village Skypool butler suite and iIt had a great view of the ocean. Our Butlers Leanna, Jamie & John were terrific. As well as our friends Butlers, Kerry, Ifiori & Neron. I would highly recommend this Resort.
We stayed at Sandals La Source in Grenada from 6/05-12/2018. The resort is less than 2 minutes from the airport ( you just can't make this up) & you do not hear departing or arriving flights (unbelievable). Arriving at the resort we were greeted by a friendly professional staff with cold lemony scented towels to cool off from the hot blazing sun. As our ocean view room was being prepared, we went to have lunch at Neptunes restaurant facing the beach & ocean. The food was very tasteful.
The evening for the returned guests was well planned & our cocktails were refreshing. Dinner followed @ Spices which became our favorite dinner place. Spices served a STEWED LAMBI which was mesmerizing by the stews tender lambi & delicious seasoning. The meal became addictive & deserves a rating of 5 stars. We had to have that meal every night but Spices is closed on certain nights. If you want delicious pizza like in New York you must go to DINOS & the rest of the restaurants have a fantastic menu which are very good.
We only had one tainted experience at Sandals all inclusive resort (which is home away from home) where they serve the best cup of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee/espresso at Café de Paris. We had a bagel incident where 2 staff persons told us to go to another restaurant if we wanted bagels (ridiculous at an all inclusive). They were simply not fully trained.
Our days at the relaxing pool side was well needed from our stressful environment. The staff was very attentive to our choice of drinks.
The pianist, fashion show, talent show & dj made this a wonderful resort.
Our overall rating are 5 stars!
This is our third day here and I am incredibly surprised - and not in a great way. First, we are not new to all inclusive resorts, so our opinion would probably vary from someone who has never traveled to a place like this. We are 36 and 37.
This is our 8th or 9th all inclusive trip (Cancun, Cabo, Jamaica, etc). This is our first Sandals vacation, as well as the first time in Grenada. I picked this location and resort based on reviews and price. Most other Sandals were more expensive. I tend to roll my eyes at negative reviews of places like this. People seem picky over things that aren’t important. But, wait. Grenada is gorgeous. The resort is set up well and very pretty. That being said, this sincerely the worst service we’ve ever experienced at an all inclusive resort. 95% of the employees seem annoyed to be serving you. We are not picky or demanding or anything like that. We are from Kentucky. We smile and say please and thank you and act southern. Two employees appear to love their jobs and have made us feel welcome. Rudell at the pool bar and another guy at the water sports shop (didnt catch his name). For most others, every simple question seems to be met with annoyance. Perhaps this is a cultural thing in Grenada? I see the butlers that people have being amazing - but we did not spring for that. Given the price we paid for a basic room, good service should not be reserved for the people who have butlers. Everything worth doing has an upcharge. We are celebrating both our 10 year anniversary and my birthday, and I requested something....anything.... while here. Nothing yet. I was hoping for a special vacation, and I really wanted to love Sandals. Unfortunately, It makes me never want to try another one. I hope this trip can be redeemed.
The hotel grounds are stunning with all the beautiful flowers and shrubs. Humming birds are everywhere! The groundsmen do a wonderful job all day, every day
We had a Poolside room above the more noisy general pool but you could not hear it. The room was up a quite steep slope which was not very comfortable to walk as I have walking issues with a torn hamstring. The room itself was fabulous!
Service in ALL restaurants was slow - they need a Maitre D' in them to oversee staff who seemed more often chatting with each other in corners rather than attending to guests. Bringing a teapot full of hot water and then never bringing teabags to go in it is not acceptable neither is one having to get up and go ask for cutlery for your table!
Not the usual high standard of service that we normally receive at a Sandals resort.
The Dive center also need reviewing as often experienced divers were having to dive with "newbies" without getting a more difficult/advanced deep dive for themselves. Although not a diver myself I heard several certified divers complain whilst I was waiting for my husband who does dive.
Comments were made to the Manager, Mr Boota and, to his credit, he did arrange for the groups to be better arranged towards the end of our holiday but it was too late for others who merely stopped diving because of the continuing mixed groups. Much of the equipment was tired and/or faulty - leaking valves, leaking BCDs, torn mouth pieces but some new was being purchased. There was no Nitrox which disappointed many of the more experienced/advanced divers.
Staff are generally happy and helpful - they just need a bit more "managing" to get up to the usual Sandals standard.
Big shout out to Mr Boota at Dive Centre, Sheforn at Cafe de Paris, Candice in the Living Room Bar, Pamela of the Entertainment Team and William & Gary in Guest Relations.
It is a lovely resort with much to offer - it just needs tweaking and it would be ideal!
