Set on Grenada’s famous Grand Anse Beach, the all-inclusive, four-diamond Spice Island Beach Resort is a peaceful paradise on eight oceanfront acres. The 64 suites are a minimum of 620 square feet, and they have garden (Oleander Suites) or ocean views (Seagrape Suites). The decor features pops of teal, peach or apple-green, and the bathrooms are fitted with luxuries such as large soaking tubs, separate showers, soft bathrobes and slippers, and iPod docking stations. The private terraces spill out onto the sand, while swaying hammocks and chaise longues offer relaxation. The rates include breakfast, lunch, dinner, premium drinks and afternoon tea. Guests can play tennis, take a bike ride, snooze under a beach umbrella, or go snorkeling and kayaking. There’s also a state-of-the-art fitness center, a full-service spa and musical entertainment in the evenings. The elegant restaurant, Oliver’s, serves an eclectic dinner menu that includes dishes such as pan-seared grouper with tomato confit and spice-rubbed duck leg with roasted pumpkin.
In the Area
In addition to beautiful, soft beaches, Grenada is home to the stunning Seven Sisters Falls in Grand Etang National Park — less than 10 miles from Spice Island Beach Resort. Visitors can also learn to sail on the beautiful waters of the island from Clarkes Court Bay Marina, about three miles from the resort. One unusual scuba diving or snorkeling destination is the Underwater Sculpture Park, a growing display of stone figures that are interesting and slightly spooky. Or you can just stay put at the resort and rent scuba gear from the shop next to the hotel and explore the pristine waters along two-mile Grand Anse Beach. Shoppers can browse the stores in the Spiceland Mall, and there’s a vendor market at Grand Anse Beach that offers locally made products and souvenirs. Golfers can head to Grenada Golf Club; for some excitement in the evening, the casual Junction Bar and Grill offers live music and libations.
How to Get There
I stayed at the Spice Island Beach Resort for 5 days and couldn't recommend them high enough! The staff, facilities and rooms are of the highest standard - I am not usually one for writing reviews but feel Spice Island was such a positive experience I had too.
Hotel is excellent, situated right on the world Famous Grand Anse beach frontage
Very tranquil ambience at this resort, with a beautiful quiet beach - gorgeous sands and warm sea.
Room was fantastic, straight onto the beach in seconds. It had an incredibly comfortable bed and all the amenities you expect from this sort of hotel plus more...including a well stocked free mini bar. Maid service is twice a day, whereupon all towels are refreshed and mini bar restocked.
All inclusive is a really good option here, as it literally is all included - except bottles of expensive wines with dinner! in fact, you can eat as much food as you like - perfectly served by highly trained staff, wherever and whenever you want.
Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, who really are a credit to Sir Royston and the management team. We’ve stayed in some fantastic places, but nothing compares to the level of service from the staff in this hotel. They are so friendly and helpful taking levels of service beyond your wildest dreams.
This hotel ticked all of our boxes from start to finish. The staff at the hotel create the most amazing experience and everyone knows your name the day you get there its quite impressive. They genuinely care about you and will bend over backwards for you throughout the stay in such an attentive way. The first morning we had a Spa massage which was just what we needed I would highly recommend giving this a go. During our stay there was so much to do and added extra benefits from the free hire of the catamaran sailing boats, free membership to the golf course and then extras such as snorkelling trips to the sculpture park. The rooms were huge and ours opened out straight on the beach as well. I must say my bed was probably the best bed I have ever slept on! I could go on forever about this hotel and I can now see why so many people we met there always end up going back as I would as well and that is quite a rare thing for me to feel.
What can I say location superb, you can do lots of walking and exploring from this hotel with little effort. Seagrape suites unbelievable and housekeeping staff cannot be praised sufficiently, they form the bedrock of the staff. Bar staff excellent however restaurant staff not up to standard. There is a disconnect from what you order and what comes out of kitchen too many times to be funny, we only got 3 correct breakfast orders out of 10 and some evening choices were wrong. What makes this unacceptable is the rather superior attitude of some of the staff who seem to have lost the art of smiling and who were downright surly and abrupt. Do not go into service industry if you do not like the public.
We live in Canada and given the late spring arrival, we were looking for some sun and quiet time to recharge our batteries.
The resort has a perfect setting and although we were late in the "nice" season (hurricane season start in June) we had a perfect temperature.
Staff is great, calls you by your name, attentive to all your needs. Food is great mixing quality products with caribbean flavor. We loved it.
