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
Beautiful resort with the most friendly, accommodating staff to help you in any way they can. Everyone is always asking if they can do anything to help you and the entire staff is always friendly and happy.
The food is outstanding, again with super friendly servers. The weather in Grenada is always perfect....warm with a soft breeze. This is our favorite Sandals so far.
I ask politely to change room after been giving a room with partial view of the beach. I booked a beach walkout club level and was given a pool walkout. I was changed room but it was annoying. For second week i received the worst possible view (obstructed view) for an Italian infinity pool villa. My wife did not want me to ask to change room. I tink sandals need to had rooms categories, because some are not giving what promised. I had a nice 2 week, but next time i boom i will be less polite and ask firmely to get what i paid for. This why i give 3 stars.
What a wonderful island. What it lacks in size, it more than make up for it in beauty. We visited one of the "newest" Sandals, 5 years old, (Barbados the other) at the end of January, into February for 2 weeks. This being our 1st trip to this resort( we have visited 5 other Sandals), we were blown away by its attention to detail, the lush, colourful grounds, and of course, the VERY friendly people. A major attraction to this resort is the proximity to the airport--5 minutes, and your are in vacation mode. although noise is not an issue, with the flights, and you never see a plane. Check-in was short, efficient, and we were in our room within 30 minutes after arriving. We had a "split stay", whereby we had a different room for each of our 2 weeks. We stayed in the "junior hideaway suite" the 1st week, and it was fairly new, beautiful, and well appointed. Highly recommend. Our 2nd week, was in the "Pink Gin beachfront" building. These rooms have ocean/sea view, but are tired, dated, but clean, and in need of an update.
We can't say enough about the food, and there was more than enough. There are 8 main restaurants available, with 2 requiring reservations(Butches Chophouse & Kimonos). By far our best experience was at "Le Jardinier." Simply put, this was the BEST Sandals restaurant we have dined in, out of our 5 different Sandals. The salmon is a must try. Rudy, the Manager, is very engaging, funny, and professional. The food at Kimonos was a disappointment, as well as the show. The food at Butches was not far behind Le Jardinier, for quality, and portions(awesome steak). There are 2 "buffet" breakfasts served at Spices & La Cucina, offering up something for everybody. Delicious. What was a bit surprising about this resort, was how breezy/windy it is. If you are a scuba/snorkel person, no problems, but the rest of the watersports were limited, due to the strong current, and choppy water. The sail boats were fairly well used, but there were no kayaks out, and only 1 paddle boarder( no success). Keep that in mind. The grounds were immaculate, colourful, and always being tended to, by friendly, dedicated gardeners. We booked a private 1/2 day tour(4 of us) to see the sights, sounds, etc of Grenada, into St Georges, along the coast and back through part of the rain forest. Spectacular. Book this through Island Routes on site, Nikita was very helpful, and engaging. Tell her you want DENNY as your guide. Amazing knowledge.
Of course, we always say, that the people make the trip. The staff here are extremely friendly, helpful, knowledgable, and truly seem to want to do whatever, to make your stay special. A special "shout out" to Rachel(Cafe-she is crazy), Alison(Soy), Jozel(bartender at Pink Gin bar), Brandee(Le Jardiner & Tipsy Turtle)., Mikeda(Cucinas), Antonio at the front desk, and Rodrigo( Food & Beverage Manager for the resort, who was everywhere, all the time, and never to busy to stop and chat). These are but a few, all the staff were tremendous.
After being at South Coast for the past 6 years, we think we have a new "favourite" Sandals. A review does not do this resort justice. Ya gotta experience it, and we will, again.
First, I would like to thank Dream Makers Vacation Services and Amy McHugh for another wonderful vacation. She took great care of us before, during and after our vacation!! Sandals Grenada is gorgeous with the beautiful gardens, pools and beach. We loved our private South Seas Waterfall River Pool Room. Thank you Supratik for honoring our room request and for checking on us during our stay. The food was delicious throughout the resort. We dined at Butch’s two times. During our first dinner there we received a special appetizer of fresh shrimp with mango sauce. Later the Chef came to our table and said he made it especially for us. We dined at Le Jardinier two times. Rudy the maitre d made sure we had a fabulous dining experience. One day I went on a garden tour with a group, lead by Christopher. He has immense knowledge about all the plants throughout the resort. We ended the tour with fresh coconut water. At the South Seas pool we received exceptional beverage service from Tracy. She’s very personable. Once she asked our names she remembered them and used them whenever she interacted with us. The ocean in front of the resort is smaller than other Sandals. I enjoyed walking the beach past the dive shop. Some days I could go further down to the rock cliffs depending on how low or high the tide was. My husband scuba dives and he loved the diving crew. Boota has a great team, especially Shawn, Prince and Gary. The diving is fantastic here. He experienced spectacular reef diving and many shipwrecks not that far from shore. We are heading to Antigua next, but will be returning to Grenada in 2021
We arrived 4th Feb flew with Virgin we had a stop over in St Lucia for around an hour couldn’t get off the plane,onward flight to Grenada was around 30 mins.
On exiting the airport we were met by our transfer people cases loaded we left the airport the best transfer i have ever had literally 2 minutes max to Sandals.
We were met with typical cold towel and glass of champagne,we checked in advisable to do most of your check in online before you leave for your holiday,we signed disclaimers for a number of things on I-pads and off we were escorted to our room Lovers Lagoon walk out plunge pool.The room was very nice mini bar stocked daily no spirits though at my room level.
Having investigated all section of the resort if you are of limited mobility you could have issues as Pink Gin Village and lovers hideaway are all very hilly to get to your room.
Another downside is Sunbeds if your not lucky enough to have paid for a butler all the sun beds around the South seas pool are gone by 06:30 reserved by Butlers it is pretty similar situation on the beach basically not enough sunbeds to go round.
All the restaurants are very nice Butchs and Kimonos which you need to book are very good,we had to wait for 5 days to get in Butchs and 4 for Kimonos however you can book if you like everyday for each restaurant if they are available.
We found all the staff very friendly and very helpful nothing was too much trouble .
It is my first time at Sandals and we enjoyed the holiday however i think there are better value luxury holidays available
One last point point the gardens are beutiful.
