Coyaba Beach Resort Grenada
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We travelled with Kenwood Travel Agency and all preliminary arrangements and provision of paperwork were delivered promptly as expected.We flew Club on BA and after a short stop at St Lucia arrived only slightly late at Grenada (advise obtaining any spirit/mixer you want during stopover in good time as bar is shut). Customs & Immigration processes were typical Caribbean (so go with the flow). We were picked up by our Taxi (Agent holding Kenwood sign) promptly from outside for the short trip to the hotel.Having booked/paid for a Premium Sea View room (advised by Kenwood these were all supposed to be second floor rooms) in October 16 we had sent an advance email asking for a room in the North block close to the sea but had received a reply to say they were all booked! On arrival we were given room 141 which is on the ground floor of the northernmost block and decided that whilst it was not the room type we had booked, it was the second best option and we did not want to go through all the hassle/grief of changing rooms until satisfied, so stayed put. Being on the point of the room block it was the closest to the beach and we doubted in the end that the view from the second floor would have been much better, if it had been another ground floor room I would have made an issue of it.The room was clean and serviceable (recent refurbishment was in evidence) for our needs with a separate bathroom/toilet. There was a large double bed, a large 6x drawer unit, bedside tables plus a table and two chairs. There was a sliding door (plus mosquito screen) onto the patio area which had two comfortable chairs and a small glass topped table. The patio didn’t get any full sun during the day so provided some welcome shade (there are no points where you can fix a line to dry things in ground floor rooms on the patio – may be on purpose to keep the view “nice”?). The room had an efficient Air-Con plus a ceiling fan (we didn’t use the latter much as it was quite noisy at slow speeds).The weather throughout our stay was good but most days were hot & humid and only had one very clear and sunny day – the humidity and clouds being a product of being down-wind of the rainforest.We did two trips with Kenwood’s agents out there (Insight Travel); we enjoyed these (Island Treasures and a Fly/Sail day out in the Grenadines – both reported separately). The beach is a public one with the usual vendors hanging around but they were not too bothersome. It does get a lot of locals during the weekends and the language does get a bit “ripe” at times. Umbrella’s which is on the south side of the complex was boisterous in the evenings but shut down at 23:00 latest and didn’t prove to be an issue for us. We went to Umbrellas one evening for a meal and a drink which was good and reasonably priced.The majority of the staff at Coyaba are a pleasure with only a few who have yet to find and maintain a happy outlook. We would like to thank them all and give specific praise to Cardel & Shanti – Cardel was a delight at all times in the bar and both restaurants whilst Shanti was a very young new starter who visibly gained in confidence daily as she got to grips with her new job. Security are in evidence along the beach front and there are regular patrols around the complex 24x7.Gardens are well planned out and maintained with dedication from the grounds team. We did find a windfall Mango early in our stay (Monty the Mango) which we spent 10x days carefully ripening on the patio. On our last morning we were going to have him fresh for breakfast only to find at 07:30 that morning that he had been “removed” by someone ☹As many reports have stated, the clientele are predominantly “older” although there were a number of younger families arriving towards the end of our stay. Unless the children are happy with a beach and the pool then they will get easily bored here – the hotel is really a place of rest & relaxation “Chillin”.There is always background music in the bar areas but it has to be said that the choice/volume is not always aligned to the predominant customer-base age range and seemed to be someone’s personal choice.We tended to eat & drink around the Pool Bar and it’s associated restaurant as the more relaxed atmosphere was to our liking. The bar opens from 08:00 – 23:00 which should serve most drinkers needs but there is a supermarket over the road should you need to buy in some room drinks if desired (beware Coke is expensive there but compensated by cheaper rum). There is a beach bar although it is somewhat disguised, as a sentry hut and opening times are a little strange and a bit hit/miss (it must be a bit of a hot house for the staff to sit in though). The bar in the main area was more often not staffed during the day and it would have been nice if the area had some decent cooling fans running; it also lacked any atmosphere, which may be due to poor attendance? Melon-man comes round at 11:00 but he did miss us on our patio more times than often. The meal arrangements, menus and reservation system is also “somewhat strange” and is not ever explained by staff properly at check-in (most guests we talked to all struggled in the early days). You have to make a decision early in the day for where you want your evening meal reservations to be (and select time) which is a bit annoying as you may change your mind during the day (best time to do this is either when going for breakfast or lunch). Reservations can be made at either restaurant for wherever you want to eat. We did once try to go into the pool restaurant without a reservation but had to go to the main one as we had booked there instead – far too complicated/inflexible for me. All meals on all the menus are available at each location you just have to ask for it.On our last evening we did go for the “pay extra” Scallops, surf ‘n turf and jerked Tiger Prawns. It cost an extra EC$165 and would not recommend the extra outlay on the seafood – scallop base was unpleasant and the prawns were small and over cooked – the Jerk sauce “blasted” any flavor the prawns may have had. A shame really as on the whole, we were extremely pleased by the level/variety/flavor of the meal presentations for the whole stay. We only had an email from our Agents about checking-out and nothing from reception. It appears you are expected to take your own luggage out to reception for a 12:00 check-out although you are allowed full AI facilities until picked up for the airport. Your final bill will be presented with a donation line for each day of your stay already printed up (2.70 EC$ per day). We also had 4/5 International call listed which we certainly didn’t make – after telling them this and that we were putting in a somewhat larger donation to their Charity Home box (in lieu of tips) the bill was ‘realigned’.On the whole we had a very relaxed time at Coyaba which was our intention. Food and Room were good and the Complex well looked after. Many Thanks.
We have just returned from our third visit to what can only be described as "Paradise".On arrival you are greeted warmly with a rum or fruit punch, and a very refreshing cold towel. Check in us very smooth and quick, which is much appreciated after a long day travelling. Bags are taken to your rooms very quickly. The rooms are clean and very pleasant, we were in a refurbished room, this is mainly a very upgraded bathroom. All rooms have hair dryer, iron and ironing board, umbrella (great for odd Caribbean showers). There are two restaurants but you can eat from both menu's at either restaurant. Breakfast is buffet, eggs are cooked to order. There is bacon, sausages, tomato, beans, potato, toast, cereal, fruit and more. Lunch served in both main restaurant and pool bar. Main restaurant buffet, with choice of meats, fish salads. Pool bar serves sandwiches, burgers and salads. Dinner in the main restaurant is a la carte 5 nights and buffet 2 nights. There is a dress code in this restaurant. The pool bar is more casual with an a la carte menu. You would have to be very fussy to not find something to eat. The staff at the Coyaba are first class always smiling, ready for a chat and all have been there some years which is a very good sign. The staff are the icing on the top of this wonderful hotel. A special mention must go to Karen and O'Brian, who really go beyond to help the guests. If you have any special dietary needs let the hotel know they will sort it for you. I asked before arrival for sugar free sprite and it was in the bar for our arrival. Thank you.What can you say about its location - it is on the beautiful Grand Anse beach, there is plenty of shade under the trees. Swimming in the crystal clear sea is just stunning.Beach sellers not a problem, just a polite No and they don't bother you.I cannot praise the hotel enough, so good we have all ready booked to go back next year.
I have just returned from Coyaba Beach with my new wife Jennifer. We have made three trips to this 'apparently unassuming hotel' but believe me it is anything but. Just 80 rooms so you never feel crowded. Don't bother running down to the beach (30 yards from your room) to reserve a spot as there is always shade and accompanying sun loungers available all day. (Unfortunately the old days from Spain seem to be going to Grenada as people, mostly older Brits will reserve a space around 7am then disappear for the main part of the day returning in the afternoon). The staff, accommodation, food and just about anything you could wish for on a fabulous Caribbean holiday will be met by this fantastic resort and its staff. I would love to mention all of the staff in dispatches but everyone of them work overtime to accommodate your every wish. look out for the 'New Dimension. award winning steel band that are sponsored by the hotel. You will be in for a treat. Jennifer and I have already booked for next May as this is, in our opinion, the best time to go. The cruise ships have long gone which means the beach is all yours.
We loved this hotel. It wasn't huge which we liked a lot. The staff were ultra friendly the entire time we were there, they couldn't do too much for you. The room we had was comfortable, but the decor was a little bit tired if i'm honest, it could do with a bit of a freshen up. This shouldn't put anyone off at all, as everywhere else was lovely. The hotel is right on the beach which is lovely if you can tear yourself away from relaxing. The food was always good, there wasn't endless choice but plenty for the 10 nights that we were there. We were all inclusive. The whole feel of the resort was very traditional and reflected the rest of the island that we saw.We hired a car one day which wasn't that cheap but totally worth it, bear in mind that the roads are very windy!My only real gripe was the snorkelling lessons that took place every day in the hotel pool. We liked to mix where we sat, so not always by the beach, but the lessons were very off putting. Some of the instructions were just too loud, very irritating. On the whole we loved it and would definitely head back to Grenada and this hotel, we'd just need to stay away from the pool. Umbrellas bar next door was great fun too, to be honest we didn't venture much further, which says a lot about the resort!!
Best service in Grenada - hands down. The staff dotted on us with reckless abandon. One waiter even said to us, "I am dying to get you a drink!" The view was incredible and the food was too. It was truly the best in Grenada!!
