My 12 yr old and I stayed at Grenada Rex during May 2017. Overall we had a great time and would stay at this hotel again. I thought it was a very good value for the price we paid. A summary of the key points are below:Pros:1. Room was good size, clean & beds & pillows were comfortable2. Sample size toiletries were provided & replenished. However I would still recommend travelling with your own3. The grounds are beautiful & well kept4. The room was a bit dated but I liked that traditional, dated comfort5. The room comes with a refrigerator which was handy for cold storage. If you are on the all inclusive package, bottled water is not included but we traveled with a small kettle & empty bottle so we simply boiled & cooled water for drinking. The tap water in Grenada tasted surprisingly fresh. Cold water was also available at a station in the hotel. I assumed this was also tap water as you also had cups for drinking.6. The buffet was more than adequate, tasty & we enjoyed the variety of foods on offer. Most importantly, food is properly kept hot and cold while at the buffet. As a Food Safety Specialist this was important for me to see7. Definitely take a seaview or beach front room if you can - the view is worth it8. Plenty of beach chairs on the beach & the cabanas around the pool were heaven9. General alcoholic beverages are included in the all inclusive package10. Wi-Fi is great. I was able to watch Netflix while my son was playing online games on his computer - all without interruption11. The room has a coffee percolator but no coffee for brewing. Instead the room came with packs of instant coffee, creamer, sugar & teabags. This was fine for me as I had my kettle for hot water & don't mind drinking instant. If you wanted brewed coffee this was available at breakfast & during the afternoon tea time12. There is a gym (we didn't use it) & walking paths for persons who like to exerciseCons:1. If you are allergic or have an aversion to cats, this is not the hotel for you. There are quite a few cats on the compound. All appear clean & well taken care of and the guests there at the time of our trip seemed to enjoy their company2. The outlets in the room are 220V [rectangular prongs] & adapters are not available free. There is only one 110V outlet in the room. Luckily other guests warned of this so we just brought a four 110V outlets power strip with us & had no problems charging phones & computers3. There is definitely too much chemical in the pool - your eyes burn, so swimming is difficult4. The shallow portion of the beach is a bit rocky but not enough to prevent you from walking comfortably. The water was not rough but not perfectly calm either5. There is a very large kiddies pool but this is on a different level to the adult pool so when you are with small kids in the kiddies pool, you can't be with other adults6. If you have mobility issues, this is not the hotel for you. There are quite a few hills & many steps. The grounds are sprawling so there is also a fair amount of walking. We didn't mind since we found the terrain & distance perfect for walking off our buffet meals7. If you have pre-teen & teenage children make sure they travel with some of what they enjoy (books, games, online activity etc) & plan to do the tours in order to keep them occupied. The brochure says there is a kids club but at the time we were there we didn't see many children or teenagers. My son however enjoyed the tour which we did through the hotel & paid less than we would if we had booked it onlineAll in all we had a very relaxing vacation and would definitely visit Grenada Rex again.
This place was probably really nice in 1985 but today it looks old. They are not even trying. I can't even get sample things like a water bottle. Cons:There is no entertainmentThe food is the same thing everyday with barely any choices. Breakfast is over early so you can't sleep in. Lunch is late so there is a gap. Front desk just yeses everyone but does nothing. Pros:Nice grounds and very scenicClose to the airport Will never return hi the keyboard
Here is my review in a very simple way ;Pro:Wi-Fi coverage excellent in the beach, resort and rooms.Resort landscape& cleanliness throughout the resort was great.Management and customer service level met my expectation.Cons:I was very disappointed with the following:1. Food quality and lack of variety. We got really bored from same meals everyday.2. Lack of entertainment. Basically No entertainment what's so ever.3. Beach was long and looks great in pictures however it's very Rocky and waves can get very rough at times... becarefull of black urchins.. wear slippers as a must.4. Rooms were very tired due lack of maintenance. I didn't like small showers inside. Some rooms didn't have a full bathtubs! Average person will have a hard time maneuvering inside the shower!
We stayed 10 days at this hotel on a full board basis, it is in an excellent position close to the airport. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the grounds and beach are stunning and beautifully maintained.Our room was well located, easy to access with a lovely view. There was entertainment every night, which varied but one night a wonderfully talented steal band played and we were lucky to hear them.The food was plentiful, not overly exciting but perfect for us and we took advantage of visiting other restaurants if we wanted something different. There were two close by.This island is stunning, the locals are incredibly friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our time hiring a car and exploring the island. If you are not used to unmarked, narrow and sometimes pot holed roads this is not for you but if you fancy a bit of adventure lose yourselves in this wonderful place. The locals will help you to find your way.The hotel was perfect for us as a base and we will recommend it to our friends.
My husband and stayed one week at the Rex. The hotel is low key and the natural ambiance is to just relax and rest. The food is good and not over done with lots of different unnecessary varieties. The breakfast buffet could make better attempts to have more non-pork options. The beach is beautiful clean and therapeutic. Over all we enjoyed our stay at the Rex and will be back again. Oh! Take the tour packages with Dexter he's very accommodating.
