Yes.
From the outside this hotel can easily be mistaken for a low-end local hotel, however it was a nice, well maintained and clean resort to stay at. Upon arrival the staff were very friendly and welcoming and remained that way throughout my stay. the bellhop was beyond helpful and insisted he guide me and carry my bags to my room. He even made sure to get an electrical transformer from front desk for me to avoid me having to seek out one later since they use 220V unlike most 110V electronics. Once we reached the room he sought out permission to walk me through the room and show me the features of the appliances. this was unusual to me as most staff, when taking you to the room proceed in automatically, turn on the A/c etc. and give you the walk through. The fact that he stayed in the foyer area and asked to walk through the room as I was already inside was a pleasant surprise. The room on a whole was clean, well laid out and very comfortable. My only issue with the room was the presence of ants throughout my stay. There was an ant in the bed (which bit me) and alerted me to the fact that they were ants in the room to begin with, and ants were constantly in the bathroom, around the window, on the counter and in the bathtub on occasion. That was not enjoyable. One plus though is that the housekeeping team came around at night and checked whether persons needed fresh pool towels or need to have wet towels taken away, cleaned or replaced anything the guests indicated and left chocolate after the evening visits! BIG WIN! this was very helpful too as I was able to get clean linen instead of having to wait until the morning like most other hotels. Breakfast was delicious to me and two or three items on the menu were changed each morning to maintain variety. Some of the options were a bit too heavily seasoned but I enjoyed them nevertheless. From the ground staff hack down ensure that I was comfortable. One issue I have overall though was the fact that the hotel did not provide what in my mind were basic items for guests. For example: bottled water. The literally do not have bottled water anywhere on the property; 'bottled' water is served in a glass directly from one of those office cooler type water coolers. Anything simple like that you would have to walk across the road to the IGA supermarket and get what you need. Having to walk to the supermarket three times during my stay was a bit of a turn off but otherwise I had a good experience at this hotel.
I could write pages about all the things that went wrong with my stay, but I don't want to give the owners a free consultation , they should be ashamed to be charging over USD 250 a night for the terrible accommodations and service. The staff is friendly, but has no training, for example, I asked for a razor, they told me they didn't have one, and that I had to get it myself at the supermarket!. Other things they couldn't get for me: peanuts/nuts/chips with my drink, decent wifi (wasn't able to stream music), black pepper, etc. etc. The food all taste the same, whatever you order, all the same spices, and it is very expensive. The beach gets very crowded with people who are not from the hotel, it's also next to a popular bar and a park, so there's noise almost 24/7. The bathroom was old and in serious need of remodeling, the phone was so dirty and smelly I had to clean it with alcohol myself. Also, to top it all off, the mattress was so worn out that I was able to feel the coils on my back. I could go on and on , but I can say that this should be at the most, rated as a two star hotel, very precarious.
Location is great.Property is protected by a guard in a shack.Rooms are ok.A little dated and our overall impression is this property is overpriced somewhat. Food as part of the all inclusive plan was good, quantity was good, and the servers were attentive.We will however try another property to conclude our 3 weeks here in Grenada.We wete more disappointed than impressed.Maybe next time might be better.We have traveled abroad extensively and have seem the lowest quality to 5 star.This property is not 5 star nor does it claim to be.Spend wisely and Enjoy!!
We visited Grenada as a couple March 11-18, 2017 for a dive vacation. We stayed at the Coyaba Resort, with the all-inclusive dive and stay package including all meals, drinks, and diving with the on-site ECO-Dive. We had a wonderful vacation and highly recommend the Coyaba Resort and diving with ECO-Dive.GroundsThe grounds were beautiful and well maintained, with a variety of flowering bushes about the resort. There were very few mosquitos or sand flies. The resort sprays twice a week. BeachWe didn’t spend a lot of time lounging on the beach as we were busy diving, but the beach was beautiful with white sand.PoolThe pool was very nice and clean. No overpowering chlorine odor. It is large enough to swim some laps if you want. It was never crowded when we were there.RoomThe room was very clean when we arrived. We had a King-sized bed in room 229, with a garden view. There is a bar just outside the resort, where it could get a little noisy with partiers and music, but we were far enough away that it wasn’t a problem for us. The music usually stopped around 10 pm.Room service was very good. Sometimes we asked for extra towels, which they promptly delivered. There is an in-room safe to put personal belongings into, the kind where you put your own passcode into the electronic lock.RestaurantsThere are two restaurants at the resort. The Arawakabana restaurant served breakfast and lunch buffet style with several food choices available. For breakfast you can have eggs cooked while you wait. The eggs are fresh, from the shell. Also available were potatoes, bacon, sausage, and other items. The evening dinners required a reservation, which for us was not a problem. We usually ate at 7 or 7:30 pm, and we never had to wait for a table. We ate at the Arawakabana six out of the seven nights we were at the resort, and they usually had dinner available buffet style. One night they had menus. The food choices were somewhat limited, but we were not disappointed. We’re not exactly food connoisseurs. Men do need to wear long casual pants, collared shirts and covered shoes in the evenings, and the ladies do need to dress accordingly. We did not mind the dress code, as it did help make the atmosphere a little nicer. They had evening entertainment a couple of nights with local bands performing, which we enjoyed.We had lunch at the Carbet restaurant one time for burgers, and they were very good.The swim up bar was very nice as well. StaffAll of the resort staff, from the groundskeepers, the front desk, security personnel, wait staff, bartenders, and room service were all very pleasant, smiling, and accommodating. We really enjoyed interacting with them during the week, and we especially want to name Rudell, Ezril, Sindy, O’Brien, Misha, Delores, Jared, and Josephine. There were probably others that we failed to mention. They were absolutely wonderful.We met several people from Great Britain, and we heard that many of them return to Coyaba Resort every year for their vacations. We highly recommend the Coyaba. If you’re a food connoisseur, you might think the menus are a little limited day to day. But we had a good time at their restaurants and enjoyed the food.GrenadaOur last day topside with no diving was spent touring a little bit of Grenada. We visited Annandale Falls, which was beautiful. We saw flowering bushes we had never seen before, and enjoyed watching jumpers from a high cliff into the water below. There were lots of tour buses from the cruise ships, and many tourists. We also went to visit St George University. We had a great day being tourists.ECO DiveECO Dive was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our week of diving with them. They went to a variety of dive sites. Most dives were 50’ (15 meters) or so, and there were lots of fish. We saw several porcupine fish, scorpion fish, trunk fish, squirrel fish, blue tangs, wrasses, lobsters, etc. We were impressed with the variety and numbers of marine life. There were large schools of fish swimming around us on every dive. We also saw a turtle and a spotted eagle ray. Most of the dives were drift dives in that the boat takes you out and you enter the water, and follow the dive master. Then when it’s time to come up, all the divers slowly ascend to their 3 minute safety stop free floating in the water. The dive master swims tethered to a “Divers Below” float on the surface so boaters don’t enter the area overhead of the divers. The currents were slow all week, and if you wanted to stop and look at something for a moment it was not difficult. I took several underwater photos and I had no problems remaining stationary for a moment to take photos. The boat is a little smaller than some other large dive boats we have been on, which was a positive because the number of divers is limited as well. Some days we were the only divers heading out for a two-tank dive and an afternoon dive. When we came up from a dive, the boat captain did a very good job putting the boat between the current and the divers to make it easier to get to the ladder. We visited the Veronica, and Grenada’s signature underwater park, the one with the statues in a circle holding hands. We thoroughly enjoyed this dive site as well as several others. We did 13 dives during the week.The dive crew was very professional and accommodating. We enjoyed talking with them about the island and diving. Underwater, they had a divemaster leading the way, and another divemaster bringing up the rear. When we were the only divers on an outing, we told them we wouldn’t mind if they hunted lionfish. They normally don’t hunt lionfish during dive outings, but we are experienced divers and enjoyed helping them find lionfish.The dive boat is moored in the marina, and comes to the shore of the dive shop to pick up divers. Some days the boat brought divers and snorkelers from the cruise ships. Once the dive boat was at the beach, it was tied off to keep it stable for loading tanks and divers. A typical two-tank dive day began with us donning our wetsuits a little before 9 am, and carrying the rest of our gear to the boat in the shallow water. There is no dock at ECO dive at Coyaba, but this was not a problem to walk into the surf to the boat. We would hand our gear to the boat crew before climbing the ladder. We normally carried our own gear from the dive shop to the boat, but the boat crew would have carried it for us if needed.After a day of diving, we carried our gear to the dive shop. They had rinse basins there to rinse our gear with freshwater. We stored our gear including our wetsuits in a large back room of the dive shop where it was secure overnight.We highly recommend ECO-Dive in Grenada, and we would return.
