- All Inclusive Features
FOODThe buffet is good, food is plenty. They serve a variety of fish, pork and chicken. Rice, salad bar and soups are delicious at dinner. Omelet station with bacon and sausage at breakfast.Saturdays is BBQ night which was my favorite.Lunch is also served at the pool restaurant which offers burgers, fries and pasta station.There is an Oriental restaurant closed on Thursdays and Saturdays. You are entitled to 2 reservations and you can purchase Lobster and shrimp at a fee if you wish.Nutmeg everywhere, it is Grenada's gold.ROOMWe had requested a beachfront room since the resort is built on cliffs and has many stairs to climb. Think beachfront if you have mobility issues. Flat-screen TV and hot water anytime of the day. Every room has a balcony.Kept clean daily and housekeeping do a good job.RESORTThe resort needs some refurbishment but is being upkept.Our flight was at 4:30pm and checkout is at Noon. Management arranged for us to stay in the room until 1pm and all inclusive is valid until 3pm. I wish Air Canada would arrange something with the resort to accomodate their clients according to flight schedules.There are adopted cats and many birds on the property. A large pond is located on the resort.Enrique Eglasias' CD gets played on a loop, it'd be nice to have variety and also some Carib style music.STAFFNot unlike other resorts, a please and thank you can go a long way. Some staff members will smile and treat you like a friend and others will make you feel like you are a nuisance more than a paying customer.Special thanks to Mary, Raphael, Chad, Amaechi, Etienne, Samantha, lovely water girl in training at the Cinnamon (no name tag but kept calling me "pretty lady") and the lady that hums at tea time.ACTIVITIESEntertainment lacks in participation due to the older clientele.There was a good steel drum band on Saturday.We booked the full day sail and snorkel excursion which is fine if you want to ride the catamaran half way up the Caribbean coast. Otherwise stick to the resorts' reefs.There is a Saturday market in St George's and there is a shuttle for $8 USD round trip.Other activities are available such as rum, nutmeg factories tour, rainforest hikes and trips to sister islands.BEACHThe resort is split in 2 sections. If you are a loner and want to avoid beach vendors, stick to the right side of the resort.Vendors often go about their business with a simple "no thank you".Left side is great for snorkeling adventures. Sea is sometimes choppy with a bit of current but mostly not a problem. Do bring your gear.Kayaks at the Watersports hut are available at no charge. The pool area is clean.
We had a fantastic vacation and I would like to thank the Rex Grenadian and their phenomenal staff for that. A great place to relax. The beach is beautiful- clear blue water- it's almost unreal. The food was awesome!! A little of everything-buffet style. Local cuisine, a variety of chicken, fish, rice, soup, cheese, potato salad, pasta salad, and much more. It was all good. The staff made you feel right at home. They are always smiling and treat you like family. As far as the bartenders, Charlene and Yolanda we're our favorites. They always take the best care of their guests. Also, Deslin who works in the restaurant was awesome, we love her. These three are irreplaceable, we received the best customer service at the Rex than any other hotel we have been to. We will definitely be back. Done change a thing- it was perfect! We look forward to seeing our friends we met on our trip next year. All the best !
We made the decision to go to Grenada at the last minute and chose Grenada because we had never been there before. It is called the spice island but I'll get back to that in a bit.The hotel itself is literally around the corner from the airport so handy it is. It is a clean resort that has cats roaming the grounds but they're harmless. We were told not to pet or feed the cats. There is a small manmade lake that has Herons living in the trees. This hotel needs a facelift to keep it fresh looking but it didn't take away from the ambiance. The rooms are clean, have louvers as the windows in the door and bathroom but don't have screens so keep that in mind when wanting the fresh, warm air blowing in your room. You may end up with more then the fresh air in your room such as insects. I would recommend taking bug spray with you to the island. The patio door was extremely hard to open to the balcony, so hard that it took my husband two hands and pulling with all his might to open it. If you want oceanfront, you get what you ask for, we had this view and we were about 50 feet away from the ocean from our room so we had the sound of the waves 24/7. We loved it. The hillside rooms are quite a distance from the beach and pool and there's no elevator to get to your room, just stairs so unless stairs are a part of your exercise program, I would suggest the sea view or oceanfront. The furniture, I feel is a little dated and should maybe be changed.The beach is a public beach which means anyone is allowed and locals are there wanting to sell their wares like, hats, bowls, jewellery, bathing suit cover-ups. It wasn't a problem though as if you said no thanks, they would say "have a nice day" and move on. There was no pressure. Also, there was never any competition to find a lounge chair at the beach or the pool.The food was good and plentiful but buffet and once you've been there a couple of days, it gets boring. There was an oriental ala carte restaurant which is heading in the right direction but they need big improvements to make it successful. You need to make reservations and it's only open Mondays and Wednesday evenings. My husband and I were the only ones in the restaurant at the time and it took quite a bit of waiting before we ordered. The food was good but maybe be a bit more generous on their portions. We were left waiting over 20 - 30 minutes to order our dessert but left because we were tired of waiting. I got injured while there and the staff did everything they could to make me comfortable, that included opening the gift shop to get some Advil for the pain. We were going to do a snorkelling tour and had it booked but had a bit of grief from the tour company at first but they gave both of us a full refund. There are only 2 bars on site, one at the pool, the other by the lobby. We paid all inclusive with this trip but premium brands were extra, as well as seafood and steak at the oriental restaurant. I felt that was nickel and diming us since all inclusive usually means just that.The people were wonderful and we would go back again.We went into St. Georges, which is the capital of Grenada and the island is divided into parishes. It's not a big island measuring about 12 miles by 22 miles if I remember correctly. To be nicknamed the spice island is an understatement to say the least. They grow nutmeg, cinnamon, coffee, mace, bay leaves. cocoa as well as fruits such as lemons, limes, mangoes, papayas, bananas and everything gets used be it for eating, baking, cooking, alcohol or for medicinal purposes. The smells at the market are amazing and can also be overwhelming but the experience is there for the taking. My biggest hint would be to take a pair of good shoes with support since the island is very hilly so comfortable shoes not sandals are needed. Go, have fun, enjoy the hotel as well as the island. It's an interesting island!
Lovely views, quiet and clean, food same same everyday but plentiful and fresh wont get sick. Bad point is when you bring 2 families for a week it cost a lot of money. To have my wifes skirt stolen from the room puts a damper on the trip. To find that someone has tried your clothes on before deciding what to steal gives you a bad taste in your mouth. For that reason I would never go back here again
Perfect for bird watching! On this property is a small pond which is home to several variety of bird species. You should spot herons, sandpipers, pelicans, doves, osprey, falcons, bullfinch, terns, hummingbirds, gulls, plovers, grassquits, egrets and more. The pond/lake is beautiful and many birds have nested in this area. A great way to spend a relaxing morning is walking around the property, spotting and photographing the many birds and other animals found by the pond. Highly recommended!
