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
Mount Cinnamon was a truly exceptional experience. The management have developed an excellent all round customer offering. The Villa had glorious sea views with a delightfully decorated interior. The service and culinary experience can only be described as best in class brought together with the highly recommended beach dinner for 2. I would definitely return. A Gold Standard Experience all round.
From the moment we pulled up to the resort until we left after three short nights, the staff greeted us by name and treated us like we had been there hundreds of times. The service was amazing no matter where you were in the resort...the staff was so friendly and welcoming. The suite we booked (cinnamon suites) was new, large, clean and beautifully decorated (bathroom was bigger than the room on the boat we came from). We ate at the restaurant a couple of nights and were very pleased with both food and service..the beach restaurant was also very good. Next time, and there will be a next time, we will definitely stay longer. A beautiful resort, beautiful accommodating staff along with wonderful amenities...we had high expectations which were definitely exceeded!
From the moment we stepped onto the resort I knew we were going to have an amazing experience. The staff greeted us as if we were their long lost friends. Our villas were decorated so cute and had all the amenities of home!! The view from our porch was absolutely breathtaking!! I will never forget that amazing sight!
Let's talk about the food! The food prepared for us at Mount Cinnamon was AMAZING. Everything was fresh and delicious. Fresh caught fish to fresh squeezed juices...each meal was better than the last.
The hospitality ay Mount Cinnamon was extraordinary. Everyone on staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. We traveled in a large group of 17 and no matter where we were on the resort we were treated like family. They spoke to us by name, greeted us with hugs, and hand delivered treats to us with a smile on their face. Each person on staff really enjoyed their job and you could tell that they loved what they were doing.
I can honestly say that Mount Cinnamon will forever remain in our hearts!!
Grenada is a beautiful country and if you are ever lucky enough to make it there I would highly recommend a visit to Mount Cinnamon!
I gave my husband a trip to Grenada for his birthday. We went for a week in December. I have to admit, this was one of the best vacations we've had. Mt. Cinnamon Resort is a true "boutique hotel". It is not like the all-inclusive hotels (e.g., Sandals) which is very nice. Instead, Mt. Cinnamon resort is more of a "concierge" type of hotel where they focus on catering to your every need. The staff is UNBELIEVABLY kind and professional. The management is kind, respectful and supportive...including to their staff. They provided individual villas (mini apartments) which are kept very clean; every evening they left us a cookie that said "goodnight". They delivered to our villa a slice of cake with "happy birthday" drizzled on the plate and a bottle of champagne. We dined with a professional singer performing in the evenings and toured the island during the day. The food was very good except that we would have liked to have added to the menu more of the cultural cuisine. Even though the water on the Caribbean side was a bit cold for swimming, I highly recommend this trip to anyone who would like a relaxing (not doing too much) vacation during the winter while absorbing a beautiful scene.
This is a fabulous resort. The accommodation is superb and the staff are lovely and so helpful.
The beds were so comfortable.
My family and I were staying for 4 nights but we arrived with our extended family for lunch. The staff were so accommodating and even ran my elderly parents to/from the beach in their golf buggy.
We were welcomed by Kevin (a director of the resort) who was very engaging and helpful with local information.
The beach cabana is the best on Grande Anse beach
