The water is nice and clear but the room is the typical Caribbean mid price resort style. So you know, not luxurious or modern but comfy and good enough to sleep. They clean and make bed everyday. Kudos for that. We stayed in mountain view room. It was fine. Nothing special. Not a type of room you can sit in the balcony and enjoy the view. From overall view and facilities, I somehow think it's not worth to pay extra for sea view but couldn't say that since I didn't try. The hotel has all inclusive option and It's $60/p extra. We didn't go for it. I feel like this hotel is not made for all inclusive because they don't really have much things to do or any entertainment and limited choices of the restaurants. I guess the reason they offer all inclusive just to make it convenient to the guests because the hotel is isolated from the city or Grand Anse which most of the actions are over there. Plus there is nothing around. No grocery store or any stripe to walk outside. You shouldn't expect decent all inclusive here. It's just an option to make you're not staving yourself if you don't go out. We were there 3 nights and rented a car to go around and we glad we did this. The hotel is close to airport but not for walking. We drove to eat out/ hang out in another luxurious resorts and local famous restaurants every day. Otherwise without a car, we probably stuck in the hotel and be bored. Most of the actions will be at Grand Anse. The rest of the country is all about mountains and cliff landscapes. Not much for beautiful beaches. Where the hotel is and Grand Anse are only all about it. For guests who don't have a car, they have bus to go to Grand Anse and tours offering which will show on the bulletin board in front of the restaurant. They also have a car rental office and tour office but I always see no ones there. We talked with the tour organizing lady on the phone via front desk but didn't try any. If you go to Grand Anse and enter the public area beach, the beach at the hotel is better in term of privacy and convenient. The water are the same but the beaches at hotel are more rocky. Just walk further to almost the end and you will be able to go in without stepping on any This place is huge but nothing outstanding. The hotel is very very quiet. I quite not sure if this is good or bad because you can relax and no need to deal with party people but on the other hand, it loses some vibes and might be boring. I think it's too big and still they don't want to put everybody in same area even if seems like they have plenty of rooms available in each buildings because of the different prices between sea view and mountain view. All in all, for the price I paid, I gave this 3 stars for mediocre level. Nothing very bad to complain much but still nothing very good to compliment either. Good enough to relax on the beach for getaways but not decent.
We are soon to return to The Rex hotel for our sixth visit and truly it feels like returning home. Yes, the hotel is in need of updating but the care and attention given by all working at the Rex plus the beautiful gardens and beach always make this holiday perfect in every way.We wish all at the Rex the very best and look forward to seeing you soon.S Mawhirk
We are soon to go on our 8th visit. Yes it does need an update which hopefully it will get once its problems with the Grenadian Government are settled, but that withstanding, it is a great place to stay. The staff are fantastic and always go that extra mile to make us feel welcome. The location is fantastic. The 33 acre gardens are a joy together with the 'lakes' which host a myriad of wild fowl, which can be watched rom one's room. It will not suit those who want all glitz and glamour but we just adore the shabby chic. There are always many returners that we meet year after year whose opinions far outweigh those who criticise. Keep going Rex, we love you all!
Though this is dated 2016 (as that's as far back as the "date of travel" option allows on this review), this concerns our holiday almost 18 months ago but it seems like yesterday. My family had a very good holiday here but the bad memories concern the lack of vegetarian meals. The only reason I am writing this review so late is because I have just stumbled upon The Grenadian website and the food section does not mention the provision of special diets. I would like to warn any vegetarians or vegans who are planning to stay at The Grenadian that they will be disappointed with the attitude to vegetarian meals. My daughter was left in tears at one point because she was told "you can eat everything except the meat". She was given pasta two nights running, until I stepped in to ask for a variety of meals....and even then, I was asked to suggest the meals. There is no excuse these days NOT to have a vegetarian option. The internet is full of recipes. As the British daughter of a Grenadian parent, I know that fish is classed as vegetarian by many West Indians - so I would advise speaking to the Restaurant Manager to discuss your dietary preferences before booking accommodation.
The actual hotel sits on 33 acres of prime reals estate but the physical structure is in need of urgent upgrade. The hotel is three stories and the only way to access the room is by staircase or tram to a certain point.The ambience is not bad and the food is good, especially the breakfast but the rooms need an urgent upgrade to resolve the plumbing issues and the lack of adequate lighting in the rooms.Potential guests with injuries to their legs and/or feet would benefit from a lift or elevator within the hotel since they would be able to get around much easier.Staff very helpful and willing to share information on almost anything.
