How to Get There
Very impressed with the improvements to the hotel, and even more impressed with the staff and the stunning gardens. There were three occasions when we needed something or reported a minor fault, and each was dealt with within five minutes. The general manager Mr Kendal Jackasal is a delightful gentleman, and one staff member who is outstanding is Mr Isaacs Floyd,
This is my fourth stay at Grenada Beach Resort (three when it was “Grenada Grand”) and the first since Radisson purchased it. I'm glad to see it keeps its island charm without too many "uniform Western hotel" changes, but the improvements that have been added are very nice. Guest rooms now have mini-fridges and ceiling fans, the ice machines are reliably full, pool deck furniture is updated and very clean, there's a shack for beach towels, the in-room coffeemakers and bedside iHome units are updated, and there's even an electric teakettle. These were amenities I was very happy to have and they make our stay feel that much more comfortable. Little things like rusted towel hooks on the patio or cracked tiles around the pool have been repaired and it all looks very nice. While service in the restaurants was never bad for us during any stay, there is now a more timely feel with servers quick to bring you coffee and ice water and see if there is anything else you need. The employees all remain smiling and kind and happy to help you, so I am glad that part has not changed!
Here is what I would tell a newcomer from the U.S. to expect when coming to the Radisson Grand Beach:
-Always have a mellow attitude in the islands when it comes to hotels and amenities and your expectations. Begin by realizing you're on a gorgeous island that is its own country in the middle of turquoise waters and beautiful hot weather. Doesn’t that make you want to slow down and enjoy things? Nonetheless you can expect a standard of cleanliness and good service at this hotel; you should expect everything in your room to be working properly--air conditioning, television, plumbing--and to get prompt attention if they are not.
-Rooms are not luxurious in the way that a five-star hotel in Chicago will be luxurious but they have very nice furnishings and amenities and are comfortable and clean and upscale. Tile floors, white bedding, comfortable beds, blackout drapes and sheers, air conditioning unit, mini-fridge, coffeemaker, electric teakettle, iHome with iPhone connectors, in-room safe, hair dryer, phone in the bathroom, mini-shampoos, large closet, flat-screen tv, patio/balcony with airy furniture. If something is not working don't be afraid to ask management; they want you to have a functioning room.
-There are two freshwater pools; a smaller square one with a deep end at one end of the property, nicely positioned to look out at the beach, and on the other side a sprawling huge thing with waterfalls and bridges that meanders through the property's other end. Both are a beautiful experience for swimming or just floating.
-Tropics means you will share it with flora and fauna. Yes, that means fragrant nutmeg pod mulch and plumeria blossoms all around your room. Yes, that also means little lizards on your porch and insects who might like to visit your room, snack on a dropped cookie crumb, and want to see if it’s fun to run near your foot. If you see an occasional small crawly critter on your tile floor, just get it with a tissue and go on with life. If you go out at night insect repellent is a wise choice on your bare skin (especially ankles) but your hotel room itself should be free of any bitey fliers. When sitting outdoors (such as at the pool), if you plant your bare feet on the cement or tile, tiny ants might like to run over your feet and give them a little nip. These aren't worse than itchy, but either keep your feet on your pool chair or put on your flip-flops. I've never heard anyone complain of bedbugs at this hotel, though; we're dealing with tropical insects here, not urban.
-There is a bank with an ATM right across the street; your average U.S bank card should get you local currency easily, though U.S. dollars are mostly accepted and credit cards are accepted at most stores and restaurants. The hotel doesn't have a gift/amenities store but there is also a mall right across the street with a good-sized grocery store, pharmacy, casual restaurant/ice-cream parlor, hardware store, and a few gift stores. You can pick up snacks, toiletries, etc. there (and don't forget to pick up Grenada Chocolate Company chocolate bars!). If you simply cannot survive without your own brand of hair conditioner, cheese crackers, insect repellent, etc., then pack them in your luggage when you come. Otherwise you should be able to find reasonable equivalents at the store. (Exception: Do come with your own sun block in your luggage; sometimes they sell out!)
-When you cross the street to get to the store/bank don't be intimidated by the number of cars/buses that honk at you; they just want to know if you want to hire them for a ride! If you don't need them just smile and say no thanks.
-Wi-fi is free everywhere in the hotel but I would hear some guests complaining that they couldn't get it in their room reliably. We never had any trouble connecting from our room, though once in a while the wi-fi would run a bit slow.
-Grenada electricity runs on 220v; their plugs look like the big Great Britain three-prongers. However, most rooms in this hotel do have U.S. -style plug outlets in them right next to the Grenada standard ones. While I always bring plug adapters when I come, I didn't even use them this last trip as my hotel room had all the U.S.-style outlets I needed.
-This is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It's long for walking, calm for swimming (though be careful getting in and out, and always be careful where you're putting your feet), features pretty shells and corals and beach glass, has a sweet little craft-and-spice market on the beach right next door to the hotel, and has restaurants you can walk right into off the beach (bring your cover-ups and shoes). When a cruise ship is "in," there will be even more activity as vendors bring drinks and crafts to sell to those who have motored beachside. Wear sunblock (and maybe a hat, too) and enjoy.
-If you take advantage of the breakfast buffet (or are lucky enough to have it included in your package--do try for that!) you can plan on making it the main meal of your daytime; we never wanted lunch after or anything more than a mid-afternoon snack. They'll make you omelets and eggs prepared to order at the buffet; it also includes juices, milk, cold cereal, yogurt, fruit, breads to toast, sweet rolls, butter and jam (try the nutmeg jam!), potatoes, bacon, ham and cheese, porridge, pancakes, french toast, corned beef hash, and always some local treat: saltfish stew, fried plantains, cooked green bananas, creole fish...Try something new!
-Yes, you can drink the tap water. The hotel will give you bottled water each day plus there is bottled water to buy, but the tap water is just fine.
In summary the Radisson has added extra appreciated comfort to a nice property located perfectly on Grand Anse Beach, and if you come with appropriate expectations you should have a great time.
Great place for the value. Friendly staff indicative of the mentality of the people of Grenada. The resort is on a beautiful beach. Wonderful gardens. They are upgrading the resort which is great. Looking forward to newer beach chairs on our next visit.
