On a hillside overlooking Grand Anse Beach, the 22-room Mount Cinnamon boutique hotel mixes the best of old Grenada (historic plantations, lively local bars) and new (modern amenities and a buzzing capital). It has a prized coastal position, but the vibe is low-key and relaxed—much like the island itself. The One-Bedroom Suites and villas are set among tropical gardens and have bursts of bright lime, orange and fuchsia in the large sitting areas, as well as modern kitchens fitted with breakfast bars and Smeg refrigerators. All of the units have air conditioning, and most come with private terraces overlooking Grand Anse Beach and the Caribbean Sea. In contrast to the modern interiors, the colonial-style buildings have red tile roofs that add a quirky historic charm—which is also evident at the popular Savvy’s restaurant. This lively spot is a destination for locals thanks to its traditional West Indian menu (fresh local seafood and spiced banana bread crumble), which is written on a chalkboard and changes daily. Elsewhere, there’s a swimming pool, tennis court, beach volleyball, daily yoga sessions and non-motorized water sports (kayaks, paddleboards, etc.), but if you just want to hang out on the beach with a drink in your hand, that’s fine too.
In the Area
Hike through the Grand Etang rainforest to the Seven Sisters waterfalls for a cooling dip, or trek to see and feed wild mona monkeys. Afterward, get lunch or happy hour drinks at the Dodgy Dock Lounge Bar, where you can enjoy calypso, reggae and live jazz. Visit the Belmont Estate, a 17th-century plantation, and learn why Grenada is called the Spice Isle, before chartering a yacht and admiring the island from a different vantage point. If shopping’s your thing, stop by Veronica’s Vision, a boutique that supports Grenada’s nutmeg industry and sells vibrant nutmeg-theme prints as wearable art, historical charts, syrup and rum.
How to Get There
My husband and I came here for our honeymoon and stayed in villa 13 in late July. On the evening we arrived, Mark, the general manager greeted us and wished us a happy honeymoon. This set the tone for the resort --very service oriented and focused on being friendly & personable. The villa we stayed at was at the very top and although it was quite lovely, we do wish we had stayed lower down so we didnt have to hike up and down. The beach for which Mount Cinnamon sits atop was beautiful and lived up to its reputation for one of the best. We enjoyed eating lunch at the cabana on the beach--the food was super, especially the fish tacos! The dive outfit that is affiliated with Mount Cinnamon was top notch - my husband noting it was one of the best dive experiences he has had. All in all, we would definitely recommend Mount Cinnamon to families and couples alike. The beautiful setting, warm staff, and amenities were all fantastic.
Our family stayed here with 3 other families with kids ages from 11-18. Everyone of them left feeling this is the best place their ever stayed on a beach vacation. I agree with them mainly because of how beautifully their Beach cabana is setup, and the views from our rooms. We stayed in Cinnamon suites. Some might feel it's steep walk back and forth between their pool and beach. It's manageable though even for the less active us who are bordering around 50s.
The breakfast, service, the food at their beach cabanas and even their dinner are so good that we all felt we shouldn't have left the resort to try out so many different places. The rooms and grounds are kept immaculately clean. The staff are super friendly. If you are person who pay attention to details you will be loving your stay here even more. From their table lamps to the balcony furniture are of superior designs, quality.
The shade and activities at the beach cabanas made our trip one of the best vacations. Looking forward to many more trips to this lovely island and resort.
We loved this place! Excellent service, relaxing, good food (and drinks), and everyone was really helpful. My only regret is that we didn't splurge for a villa, but our room was great. The staff was very helpful too, they helped arrange accommodations for tours and into St. George's.
This was our 3rd trip to Grenada but 1st time staying at Mount Cinnamon. We arrived exhausted and were immediately greeted by Mark, the general manager. He was quite friendly, as were all staff at check-in.
The next thing we knew, welcome rum punches were in our hands, chilled washcloths offered, and complimentary neck and shoulder massages made us feel like this was indeed a very special place.
It actually got better, as Mark inquired if either one of us had any dietary preferences/restrictions. This was TOTALLY unexpected as I am gluten/dairy/meat free and was prepared to resort to relying on the full suitcase of food I’d brought to survive on. Imagine my shock when he told me they actually baked gluten-free bread daily at the resort, and that they found it quite easy to accommodate me! Of course,
fresh veggies and salads daily. But almond milk for my coffee? Check! Lentils, pigeon peas and rice, quinoa, gluten-free pizza? Check! Savvy’s even prepared some delicious, exotic dishes like grilled breadfruit that I had never tried before. Absolutely delicious! Full breakfasts were included daily and there was so much to choose from. My husband’s diet is non-restrictive and he found the meals to be outstanding as well.
Although we were not on an AI package, we ended up eating all our meals on property simply because not one of them disappointed.
We were shown to our beautiful villa (14) by Judy, who could not have been more personable. My husband and I quickly realized how much we’d been undersold on this location.
Not only was the villa well-appointed and comfortable, we truly could not believe the views from all the rooms. Pure heaven. We spent more time than expected on the spacious balconies, enjoying the cool breezes and the cheeky bananaquits hoping for a little treat!
Activities were plentiful on their gorgeous spot on Grand Anse beach. We loved joining the complimentary Pilates class, stand-up paddle boarding (our 1st time, what fun!), and beach side shuffle board. We had younger family members join us the last 2 days of our stay and they had a great time enjoying all of the amenities. Three of us also had massages at the beach side cabana and all agreed Shannell was just incredible. So relaxing and just what we needed after playing at the beach all day.
Mount Cinnamon will not disappoint. From the wonderful staff, delicious meals (do not miss the Friday night beach bbq), and heavenly rooms and villas, all set on the most beautiful spot on Grenada. This was truly a vacation of a lifetime.
First time to Grenada. Very impressed. Couple with adult son. We stayed in Villa 7. Up the hill. The hotel wants you there and lets you know it. The staff is beyond friendly and helpful. There are free beach toys: kayaks, paddle board, sail boat, shuffle board, ping pong, chess, croquet. There is also strong wifi everywhere. The atmosphere is casual friendly. The beach is gentle and beautiful. There is nothing in the water to fear. The sand is a nice texture. The beach is where lunch is served and it's a fun atmosphere. The Friday Night dinner is there too and it was quite entertaining with the steel drummers, bonfire, and s'mores complete w Granada chocolate. We were the only Americans. Lots of ppl from the UK. Made many friends. We will be back. Thanks Mark and Kevin.
