- What's Included
Spent a long weekend at Graycliff. Heard wonderful things and the restaurant is amazing. The staff was very good, helpful and pleasant. The groinds and rooms need updating. Loved the location and amenities (restaurant, cigars, wine cellar)but did not think it was worth the money.
Cool place to walk though for 30 minutes while in Antigua. I enjoyed the cigar store. You can actually watch them roll cigars and learn a little about the different papers they use. A little tip jar is available and probably a nice gesture if you do not purchase anything. The chocolate shop was okay. I like my chocolate, but thought the quality could be better. Friendly people. Check out the pool too. Old school chic. Worth a visit.
Overall, a lovely property. Old mansion with a lot of stuff. I say stuff because there is everything from a pool, to a pizza restaurant, to a cigar factory and many other things. There are also a lot of activities on the property as well, related to the various businesses located there. This is all great, except you wouldn't know any of this unless you read the binder in the room once you get there. However, by then offerings are usually full so it doesn't work out well.The rooms were spacious and included a mini bar. Also, keep in mind this is not a typical type of tropical stay, but more of a jungle retreat.Little things about this place made this 4 stars for me:* No screens on the windows, so you have to constantly keep them closed and use the air conditioning.* The voicemail box not cleared out between guests.* Not being told ahead of time when certain things would be closed.* No tour or overview of the property upon arrival.* Having to walk by dinner guests at the nice restaurant after a day on the water to get to your room.This felt more like a business than a hospitality endeavor. That little spark of genuine caring for guests was missing.
Whilst the hotel is a premium price for the Downtown Nassau area, it's worth a visit. We stayed for a single night at the end of our trip. We didn't eat in the restaurant so I can't comment on that. The room was very big and comfortable. Had a great feel to it (which felt nice in Nassau, which is otherwise all a bit too "Cruise ship/Paradise Island super resort-ish" for my liking. The hotel itself comes into it's own when you see the other things that are there - the Cigar factory is well worth a visit! even just to take in the wonderful cigar smell upon entering the door. They let you look around, but they do offer a short (very short) tour for about 10 dollars per person (It's not worth it, as the tour doesn't really go beyond a corridor with some signs on the wall) - just go an have a quick look instead. The other absolute must do, is to ask for a tour of the wine cellar. I'm not sure if they advertise it, but I asked at reception and a very kind member of staff took us down to see the incredible collection, at no cost (about 300 thousand bottles with some very rare and old wines), it's stored in the cellar which is a converted colonial prison block. If you really do have some money, then you can dine down there (but that's getting into silly money territory). in conclusion - a wonderful experience if you can afford it (I couldn't normally, but having just our final night there was fantastic and worth a bit of overspending).
We were told that this is a 5 Star Restaurant....DO NOT BE FOOLED!!! This is NOT a 5 Star restaurant, although they charge 5 Star prices!! I would love to post some of the pictures we took of the night we ate there....OMG, a dead viney plant was our centerpiece...on a wooden table, NO LINENS at all!!! What a joke!! I would NEVER recommend this place....OH by the way, even though we had a confirmed reservation and arrived on time...we waited 45 minutes for a table?!?!!? NOT 5 STAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cafe Martinque or NOBU are much better in every way!!!
