Coyaba Beach Resort Grenada
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
My adult daughter and I stayed at Coyaba for 7 days in mid February and were absolutely delighted with our choice. The Resort is probably somewhere between 4-5 stars and not truly a 5 star, but based on value for money it is definitely a 5 star. -The staff are very attentive and friendly.-The rooms are clean and modern for the most part except minor details.-Housekeeping is excellent and towels are plentiful.-The food is very good to excellent in so far as appetizers, soups and main course.-Desserts and baking may need a little work but were good.-The beach is drop dead gorgeous, as are the resort grounds.The resort is situated directly on Grand Anse Beach with plenty of loungers and shade. Be careful since many resorts are up the hill a ways and NOT on the beach directly. The beach is certainly the nicest that I have seen between Cancun, RM and Seven Mile in Jamaica. It is breathtakingly beautiful, unspoiled and very safe!The Coyaba gardens are impeccably kept and there is a wide variety of trees, shrubs and flowers to explore and admire.Grenada itself is lush green, garden like, unspoiled and not commercialized. The people are extremely friendly and pleasant and the public places are well maintained for the most part with national pride in clear evidence everywhere. Grenada is probably the safest place I have seen in my life and travels throughout the US, Canada, Mexico and Caribbean. It truly has a very safe feel to it with little in the way of any drugs, suspicious activity, hostility of any sort and unwelcoming individuals.I would not hesitate to recommend the Coyaba to friends, but must caution that the general age range is largely skewed to the 65-80 old year demographic. This is not a "nightlife" spot, however there is pleasant entertainment 3 nights per week that provides opportunities for dancing and socializing.Thank you Coyaba!
We have just returned from our first visit to the Coyaba Beach after what has been one of our most enjoyable holidays over the last 40 years.A wonderful location with beautiful, well-maintained gardens (with lots of shade) adjoining a wide, sandy beach - yes, a public beach, but in a central position away from St. George's and not a problem and with staff members always present.You'll see a few complaints about some of the staff and the food, but we found almost every member of staff to be absolutely charming and helpful. We ate every meal in the same restaurant, although the Pool Bar offers the same menu. The only difference is the 'Dress Code' for dinner in the restaurant. Don't be put off by that - again, you'll read some adverse reviews about that, but it really is no big deal and something that most of us would expect anyway.The room was modern and quiet with good sound insulation; only one small issue here: it was at the end of its block and the water pressure from the tap (but not the shower) was low and it took a long time to fill the bowl.Just one thing: if you're looking for a huge range of food and water sports, just remember this hotel has only 80 rooms with the constraints that this places.One final thing: we tend to be put off by hotels located near the airport. This has a transfer time of about 10 mins., but the airport is hidden behind hills and you rarely hear or see an aircraft.If you really want to know if a hotel is well-appreciated, the best acid test is to find out how many guests have been there before. We found that a majority of those we spoke to had been there before, some many times. We hope to join them!
If you have never visited Grenada, I recommend this hotel. It's a lovely property on a gorgeous beach, and it is impeccably maintained by the owners. The staff are warm and friendly, and unlike staff we've experienced in other parts of the Caribbean, the team at Coyaba is very attentive to the comfort of their guests. We felt safe there. And I loved seeing solar panels on all the roofs. I debated giving Coyaba five starts, but I've stayed at five-star properties and this one, while coming close, is not quite there. Some areas where modest changes would move them to five stars:1) For an all-inclusive, which is the package we chose, the food was good. It is also quite "British," which was apparent from some of the food options. We love Britain, but as Americans this selection took a bit of getting used-to, particularly for our 12-year-old son. What we all agreed is most needed is a top-end pastry/dessert chef. The desserts ranged from fair to pretty good, but if they had been excellent, we'd have noticed. What was really good were alternating mornings of vanilla pancakes or omlettes made to order by a chef at a station. 2) There is a bar/restaurant right next door to the property, and it was situated very close to our room. The blaring music until 10 p.m. was more than we would have liked, though it was nice hearing people having a good time. 3) When we checked in, we got a certificate entitling use to an hour's use of snorkel equipment each day. It seemed odd that at an all-inclusive resort that we would not be able to use the equipment for more than an hour at a time without paying additionally for it. Our 12-year-old had a relaxing time at the pool and on the beach, and also playing a bit of ping-pong and shuffleboard. But note this is NOT like an American family resort in the sense that there are endless activities for kids. There is no kids camp, for example. There were some other kids there, but mainly much older folks from the U.K.I don't recommend spending lots of time online when at such a beautiful spot, but the wifi connectivity was excellent--better than at my house! Some other thoughts about Grenada generally:a) We rented a car to tour the island and visit the Belmont Estate. Hysterically, roads and streets outside St. George do not have names. Period. I thought the map was mis-printed, but it was not. You have to use your intuition to get around the island, and follow small, infrequent signs that point you in a given direction. Also, the roads are narrow and twisty, the hills endless, and the dogs and goats playing in traffic are countless. Driving here is not for the faint of heart--especially if not accustomed to driving on the left. b) We used Stephan at Echoshuttle to take a snorkel tour of the underwater sculptures. He picked us up on the beach in his motor boat. Amazing time! Highly, highly recommend seeing these sculptures, which are along the coast, in a cove just a short distance north of St. George. c) We also walked around St. George itself. Be sure to visit Market Square and get some spices! Excellent prices there--don't wait to buy at the airport. Lunch at Bibi's was terrific. All in all, a relaxing week in a beautiful spot. More Americans should come and visit.
Happy with the room which was overlooking the beautiful gardens, my partner had stayed here last year for Christmas and New Year and understand why she wanted to come back. The hotel is located on the beach which is local but not busy, the staff will take a bed for you where ever you want it, the rooms were very clean and well supplied. We were on all inclusive, all meals were very tasty with a good variety to suit all, normal egg station for breakfast and restaurant changed from buffet, to a la carte and bbq, all drinks incl cocktails all made well and all lunch and dinner wines included red, white, rose and sparkling wines. The staff and management were wonderful and any request was no problem, would come back again.
Beautifully situated resort with a very friendly staff. We were on an all inclusive basis and whilst there was no problem with the standard of drinks offered the standard and variety of food in our view fell well short of a 4 star hotel
