- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Holidays cost a lot of money and we need to pick wisely so I hope my review helpsThis is not a hotel for food gourmets or younger people looking for lots of activity.It is though a lovely setting and because occupancy is low there's no getting up early to grab a sunbed on the beautiful beach or great pool setting.We are on an all inclusive that was half the cost of many more "sophisticated" places. We typically find food expensive in the Caribbean so tend not to self cater. Having an all inclusive base at a good price means we can enjoy using the place as a base but then eat out as well. In fact the food has been pretty good and to our style for a holiday. No attempt to do fancy food and failing and we have eaten in more than we planned. Even the free wine is good which is not always the case.If your British, think good well cooked pub food not fine dining. The food is Caribbean, well cooked and tasty. The BBQ last night was very well done (compared with a previous post on TA) Great flavour chicken & ribs etc. Salads etc are limited so you cannot be that healthy. If you are a dessert person you may be disappointed as they are rather average but sometimes they taste better than they look.The hotel is very dated but If you can see beyond that, the pool area is lovely as are the grounds The lagoon that was apparently rather smelly is nice with some good bird life.The bed is comfortable , the air con is great and no problems with hot water. It's not luxury but I think it is good value as a base for getting out and about to see the island.If you are looking for a bit more luxury or gourmet you may want to spend more money and go elsewhere.Final word for the staff , they are the friendliest we have met on our Caribbean travels which is a credit to them. Working in a hotel with facilities that have perhaps become past their best cannot be that easy. Well done to them.
The hotel is closed to the airport just minutes away. The ocean view room is one of the best rooms especially the view when you wake up in the morning.The food is average. The staff is well trained and make you feel like this is home.The hotel organize field trips for all as a team.
The hotel need some major renovations. The place is very dated especially the rooms. I had an ocean view which was nice to wake up and see the ocean but the room needed a lot of updating. I could not use the safe because it did not work. The fridge was not working either. The hotel staff were courteous, helpful, friendly and accommodating. They went out their way to help many times. The service was great. The food was okay (not too much variety). At breakfast, I would ask for cup of tea and every time it was cold. The entertainment was definitely a joke, it was awful. The hotel had very few guests during my stay so the hotel was very quiet. The pool area was nice. I noticed most people went to the pool instead of the beach, not sure why? The beach wasn't bad at all. I did not like the foul odor that came from the lake, the smell was so awful. Also there is no elevator service, so there is a lot of walking and climbing up stairs. Grenada is a nice island and the people of Grenada are very friendly, helpful and honest.
Very tired hotel running on a shoe string !!! Booked very last minute read reviews and hoped its wasn't as bad as I had read !!!! Yes confirmed on arrival could not believe the buffet BBQ burned offerings so had a piece of sweet corn, This is honestly the worst hotel food wise I have ever stayed in lack of choice and same every night fish or chicken no taste didn't eat one dessert and even the ice cream was horrible cheap bulk buys . Spoke to management but lack of money nothing could improve needs closing down and lots of money spend on this to bring this up to date. Prices they charge for what they are offering is a disgrace .Dont waste your money hotel had about 30 guests all other hotels in area have 90 per cent occupancy.
Grenadian by Rex is great for relaxing on the beach which was our main aim. The hotel is quite tired and would benefit from investment in renovation. Our beachfront room was quite basic but kept very clean. The food was enjoyable and included local fare which was to our taste. During our stay the Rex Hotel group Caribbean catering manager, Frederic, was conducting a catering review to enhance standards which shows good management processes. Frederic was a very professional, pleasant and sociable man who was quite happy to listen to any suggestions and comments, both good and bad, and take them to the hotel manager for action. Thank you Frederic.The evening entertainment was sporadic and pretty awful when available except for one evening in our 2 week stay when a lone steel drum player/singer entertained us. The hotel is very near the airport but there is minimal noise form the aircraft. The grounds are extensive, very pleasant and kept in very good order. Unfortunately, during our stay, the lagoon had a broken pump resulting in a dreadful smell in some areas of the grounds. However, the pump has now been repaired, at Caribbean speed, and as we left, the lagoon waterfall and fountain were working again so the smell is no more. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and we met some very pleasant fellow vacationers. We went on a tour around the island arranged through Mr Moody (taxi and tours - 415-9063) who operates independently from outside the hotel reception area. This was a brilliant full day out, on an itinerary set by the passengers with commentary by Mr Moody (sometimes hilarious!). We recommend this lovely gentleman very highly. We also went on a snorkelling full day cruise arranged through Charmaine, based at the tour desk inside the hotel which was also enjoyable.Overall we enjoyed our stay as it was totally relaxing and we would recommend it for anyone with similar expectations.
