Coyaba Beach Resort Grenada
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Having stayed at this resort in 2011 for a quiet getaway we decided to return to get married here this year. The hotel is a 15 minute transfer from the airport and is located near a small shopping mall and other amenities. Coyaba Beach Resort also sits on the beautiful Grand Anse Beach. We arrived at 10pm on a delayed flight but reception staff we ready and waiting for us with a rum punch and sandwiches in our room. We were pleasantly surprised to see the rooms had been refurbished since our last visit, which included an improved bathroom with a walk-in shower. The room also had a small fridge, tea/coffee making facilities and a safe. Our room was a ground floor room in the block nearest the beach and was a very good size with a comfortable bed, a table and chairs as well as furniture on the terrace including 2 sun loungers with a view out to the gardens and beach. All staff we met were extremely friendly and more than willing to help. Our wedding party included 10 guests - we went our separate ways during the day, but the restaurant staff were always able to sit us together so we could catch up in each evening. The food was as good as we remember from our previous visit and the executive chef was more than helpful with one of our guests who is vegetarian-going-on-vegan and she was very impressed with the choice of foods she could eat. Chef also met with us in advance of our wedding and tailored a menu incorporating our favourite dishes from home and local flavours. The gardens are well worth a tour with one of the gardeners who will happily tell you about what's growing and what various plants are used for - a big thanks to gardener Andy King who carved our names and wedding date into a tree for us. We also made use of the gym whilst we were there, and although it is probably the one area of the hotel that needs some improvement, it was adequate enough for a basic workout to counteract some of the effects of the cocktails and good food! The Coyaba is as good as it is because of the staff. In terms of our wedding, we couldn't have asked for more - in fact they far exceeded our expectations - from the set up of the ceremony on the beach to the private dinner they arranged for us and our guests also on the beach by torchlight. We will definitely be returning for our 1st anniversary.
From the moment we arrived to a very friendly welcome, a glass of rum punch and seamless check in we enjoyed every second of our stay at this wonderful hotel. The location is perfect being right on Grand Anse beach with the hotel grounds going right up to the beach. You are allowed to have a hotel lounger on the beach itself (the staff will carry the loungers onto the beach for you) and still be within a stone's throw of the hotel's beach bar. There is a choice of 2 restaurants to eat at and the food at either is excellent. There are 2 bars, one being in the pool area with a swim up bar. Entertainment is provided 3 times a week and on Tuesday evening there is a cocktail party and BBQ. Our room was very clean and comfortable with a huge double bed. The air conditioning is effective and not too noisy - we left ours running all night and it didn't disturb us at all. The bathroom is not huge but the walk in shower was a generous size. There was plenty of drawer and wardrobe space. The gardens are very well looked after and full of colourful flowers and bird life. All of the staff we met or talked to were so friendly and always smiling and laughing. We left with very happy memories of a wonderful holiday and hope to return at some point in the future
Our flight was delayed and so we arrived at Coyaba at around 10pm. Upon arrival, we were pleased to be greeted with Fruit/Rum punch and taken to our room. Although quite basic, the room was a decent size with a small verandah over looking the gardens and pool. Our room was equipped with a flat screen Samsung Smart TV, a safe as well as air conditioning and a ceiling fan. The second day was when we really got to take in the beauty of the hotel. The gardens were perfectly manicured and maintained throughout our stay. There are ample sun loungers which can either be used on the grounds of the resort or taken out onto Grand Anse. Beach towels were provided and changed daily. Breakfast was hit and miss - the first time was delicious, but the three other times weren't great. Lunch by the poolside was nice, but the menu lacked variety so we only went once. As I celebrated my birthday during the stay, I was presented with a lovely cake, however this was covered in ants in a matter of hours.My advice if you're a Room-Only guest, is to venture out of the hotel and experience a variety of food from the likes of Umbrellas (along the beach), Sweet Traditions (town) as well as Spiceland Food Hall. Pros:- Perfect Location- Great staff- Managers cocktail evening on TuesdaysCons:- Housekeeping hammering down the door to change the towels at 8/9pm- Dirty toilet brush (these are cheap and should be changed)- Boring breakfast selection- Ants on the tables, sink area and floor and even sometimes in the bed! All in all, the experience at Coyaba was a pleasant one and I look forward to coming back in 2017!
I always worry about giving hotels the headline rating of exceptional value for two reasons. Firstly it might tempt management to increase their prices and secondly other people could be tempted to stay there with the same impact on pricing! Alas I need to be honest. We have stayed at the Coyaba three times ins even visits to Grenada over the years and it has got steadily better over time with care and investment continuing to take place. It has got the obvious benefit of being on Grande Anse beach perfectly located across the bay from St George's. It's modestly sized (80 rooms) within nice gardens and family owned for 30 years. The food is good if a little unchanging if you stay for two weeks. The rooms are clean and they have some very good staff on the team. So there you have it. There are better hotels on Grenada but none in our view offering such value for money. If the prices have gone up when we next visit we will blame you dear reader!
In terms of location, there are very few hotels in the region that are located on a beach like Grand Anse beach with a supermarket, fast food, restaurants and bars all in walking distance. The hotel is also only about 15 mins max from the airport.Average rooms but those above the gym have flat screen and better wifi. The gym is good for short trips but the beach is perfect for a good sweat and dip. Breakfast is buffet and average. Wifi is spotty. Lush well maintained grounds! Very friendly staff. You will need an adapter if you are coming from a 110 environment; front desk typically has one or two. Basic rooms with some normal room amenities. Bathrooms need updating. Overall a decent hotel boosted by its location and what's around it.
