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
Rooms awesome, staff awesome , Beach awesome. Beach toys included. Love this place! Will pick this place for sure when we return! Thank you Shauna for booking us the best view! Thank you every one for a great trip.
Our villa was well equiped and tastefully decorated. Mount Cinnamon staff were full of care and attention to make sure we had a flawless experience.
What we liked best: the location, the beach, the sailing and the food
What we liked least: having to leave after 5 days... we will be back!
Nice small-medium hotel, good location slightly out of town. Rooms are spacious with local colors and excellent view. Full kitchen with nice utensils (so you can cook fish from local market), washer/dryer, big flat TV in living, no TV in bedroom but stunning view completely replacing it. Staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. Fish in restaurant is very good, best in neighborhood. Live music Friday and Saturday. Diving and snorkeling places nearby on endless beach. We enjoy our vacation and will definitely recommend to this place to others.
Its been on our wish list to visit Grenada for a little while now, and Mount Cinnamon was chosen as we'd read that the service was good. Well, how right they were! The staff here are the stars. They are friendly, welcoming and a genuinely happy bunch. Everyone was a delight and we certainly felt as though they were pleased to see us each day. We spent 11 nights here, so we got to know them fairly well. I am loathe to single anyone out to be honest, but we really loved Antonio and his fabulous cocktails! Shakira was lovely too - but everyone was, genuinely.
Service, for us, is the key to a great holiday and Mount Cinnamon certainly earned their 5 stars in that respect.
The hotel is set at the end the Grand Anse beach, which is really quite lovely. There is a great Beach Cabana, serving drinks and delicious lunches every day - again, excellent service there and the chefs were happy to make us whatever we wanted, even if it wasn't on the menu - the Roti was the best!
The sea at this end of the beach can be a bit rough, and trying to venture in without getting swept off of your feet was a bit of an adventure. However, I would imagine in the main season it would be calmer. We didn't have any problems with seaweed.
We stayed in a Hacienda Suite, which was generous in proportions and certainly suitable for 3 adults. However, it has seen better days and whilst clean, they really could do with updating as it is still very stuck in the 1980's! That said the bed was really very comfortable, but our son said the sofa bed was very uncomfortable. It would probably be better to have a proper bed for people staying above a few nights.
There is building work going on at the resort, which was, at times, very noisy. Listening to a jack hammer whilst eating breakfast was not my idea of holiday dining. However, it wasn't constant, but just be aware if you are visiting before the end of the 2018 that there could be noise, which can be heard on the beach as well from time to time. We had been assured that it wouldn't disturb us, but I have to say it did (the only bad bit of the holiday though!).
Food was good and they were always happy to provide something not on the menu. It is a short menu, but there are variations always available. There is some entertainment at night (a singer), but if you are after a wild time then its not likely to happen here, but if you want a relaxed and chilled out stay its just perfect.
To sum up, we had a great time on Grenada and really enjoyed our stay at Mount Cinnamon. Would we come back? Definitely!
The Cinnamon Suite is Sweet!!!
Unforgettable that's what you are (singing). This weekend I traveled to Mt. Cinnamon! I am Grenadian but when I left my home and entered this soothing environment I knew I never left Grenada but I traveled.
For years I have played music here entertaining guests on a weekly basis and more specifically during Christmas and to bring on the new year each year. I finally got the opportunity to enjoy what one always wondered had the guest returning to this lovely place. My weekend answered just that! Luxury filled with simplicity! Walking out/Signing out is sad. My Honeymoon will be here! Oh, the staff has the tone and energy that makes you drop all worries -- from breakfast to room service. Excellent service/accommodation! Keep it up
