Coyaba Beach Resort Grenada
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We have recently returned from our second trip to La Coyaba. During our two week stay we met 7 people who were staying at the same time as us last year. Couples were enjoying their 4th, 6th or even 10th visit and I'm quite sure this unusually high repeat clientele reflects the careful attention paid to a specific market niche. Small properties cannot be all things to all people and the owner/manager of La Coyaba has decided on the guests he wishes to attract and satisfies the majority of their requirements very well indeed. As mentioned in previous reviews the age range is older, mainly 50 plus and overwhelmingly British. Although proud Canadians now, being British born meant we had lots in common with the other guests. The ambiance is one of peaceful relaxation-no bingo, no crab races, no silly pool games and best of all a blissful absence of yahoos who've had 6 pina coladas too many. The courtesy of the guests is matched by the courtesy of the staff who are smiling and friendly and hard-working-lots of fun to chat with. A great strength of La Coyaba is its perfect position on Grand Anse. This beach deserves its world-class designation and this hotel is right on the best bit. The gardens are pretty and when we were not on the beach we enjoyed sitting under the trees and watching the world go by. Lots and lots of chairs, well-spaced out with deluxe squashy coverings. So many chairs that there's no need to get up in the middle of the night to try and 'bag' one. We had a renovated room with walk-in shower and although not luxurious, perfectly comfortable with a nice balcony (swimsuits dry outside very quickly in Grenada), a small fridge and kettle. Maid service is prompt-our room was made up every single day before lunch. A feature we especially like is the nice lounge with comfortable sofas and chairs so guests can chat at the end of the day. There was entertainment most evenings but it finished by 10 or 10.30 which seemed to suit everyone. If you are a party animal this hotel is not for you, go elsewhere, please, please go elsewhere!! but if you are seeking a rejuvenating absolutely relaxing holiday La Coyaba fits the bill. Do venture and explore the island, it is very beautiful and interesting too although rather than renting a car I think it's better to pay for a guided tour or better still a personal driver who can take you where you wish-go see the fascinating stages in the production of chocolate. Of course nothing is quite perfect and the only area which could reasonably be improved is the food. Breakfast is fine, all the normal things and an especially nice egg station. However, lunch and dinner are somewhat repetitious and a few tweaks would make a big difference. Even if the price went up to allow for this I am absolutely sure it would make no difference to the occupancy rate as everything else about La Coyaba is so good.See you next year!
We stayed for two weeks. The hotel has a great beachside location on Grand Anse and is perfect for a relaxing holiday. Minus points: the rooms that have not been refurbished are a little tired and basic; the food quality is also variable and it tends to be quite bland to cater for all tastes. Plus points: if you stay on an 'all inclusive' package (which you really should), the drinks are plentiful and good quality; the staff are also extremely friendly and helpful. The plus points far outweigh the minus ones and many of the guests are repeat visitors.Thanks to all the staff for making our holiday so enjoyable and, although it is difficult to single anyone out, Alison, Nisha and (barman extraordinaire) Rudel in particular. Finally, we booked with Virgin Holidays; our rep, Johanna (who is also MD of the leading tour company on the island), is one of the best and most knowledgeable we have ever come across.
First the good, the staff were all great, friendly and helpful. The grounds are a very pretty garden, very well maintained, all well lite at night. There are ramps for wheel chair access and they even have a wheel chair if needed. The pool is smaller but nice and there is a ramp to get up to it, nice pool deck with lots of seating.The not so good, we went for the all inclusive package and found the food to be less than impressive with the menu never changing, unless you wanted to pay extra $$$ for special meals. The rooms are tired, with mismatched furniture and a well worn air to the rooms. The rooms were clean but still felt more like I was at an ageing Mom & Pop motel than a resort that fell into the medium price range for the island. The A/C unit was good and ran fairly quietly, maids have a bad habit of turning it off if you are out of the room when they clean or turn down the bed, sadly they also seem to always turn off the power to our charger for the I-pad or kindle. Room had a small fridge where we could at least chill bottle water or juice. Has a kettle and instant coffee or tea, no coffee maker. The worst, the water pressure in the shower is darn near non existent, honestly took 4 times as long to shower and wash my hair than it does at home. We had a walk in shower but a grab bar in the shower would have be nice as well as maybe a portable shower chair would be welcome. Bathroom was small, motel room small. Don't be on the side of the resort next to Umbrellas, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights they have entertainment, very loud entertainment only good thing is they do quit by 11-ish.
First stayed here in1999 and thereafter each of the next four years. Sadly Ivan occurred and that plus life moving on did not return until last year. Amazing only two staff members remained yet the ambiance was unchanged still the same incredibly welcoming holiday.Guess what -have just booked to return again this year and cannot wait.A marvellous hotel offering friendly service in a superbly relaxing environment.Service is the watchword.Friendliness is the very close word to describe staff attentionA restful friendly .
This resort is so authentically Caribbean. Loved the rooms; they really represent the Caribbean (they didn't try to make it modern and bland to please everyone). The grounds are extremely well maintained and staff do everything to make you feel at home and valued. Decided this is the best resort on the island and will get married here next year!
