I have recently returned from a wonderful summer holiday in Grenada staying at the ultra chic boutique Mount Cinnamon Resort. From the moment I arrived to the date that I left, I could not fault the service received from the wonderful members of staff who treated me more like a friend than a guest. I booked a 1 bed villa and having got over my initial shock of realising that the hotel was actually built into the mountain (guess I should have figured that out by the name!), I couldn't fault the accommodation which gave me a taste of a home from home. A large sitting room, brilliantly equipped kitchen, a massive balcony with clever seating options and a downstairs bedroom with a huge bed that felt like I was doing a pole vault to get into but I'm not complaining! The villa gave me the opportunity of eating at 'home' if I wanted or going down to the restaurant if I felt like it. I loved having breakfast in the restaurant watching the cheeky little birds fly in to see if they could get some crumbs and it was good to have a freshly cooked breakfast rather than an all you can eat buffet. I fell in love with the stuffed chicken thighs with goats cheese and callalloo for dinner. The beautifully maintained landscaped gardens leading down to the beach was a wonder and the beach facilities were excellent with lots of water sports available for anyone interested. I did end up doing a lot more exercise than I'd originally planned walking up and down the steps of the mountain back to my villa but it was well worth the view and also slightly cooler being a little higher up than sea level - also, there is a golf buggy and driver available who dropped us back to our rooms if we wanted. There were a number of tours on offer, but as I had friends on the island, I didn't take this up, but I will certainly do so should I return. I would highly recommend a stay at Mount Cinnamon - you won't regret it. Feedback to hotel:- breakfast: would also like to see more Caribbean options available- dinner: I unfortunately do not eat seafood which meant that I was limited in my options for dinner which was around 80% seafood. You currently have a catch of the day, could you also add a meat special of the day so that for non-seafood eaters like myself, there are more options- gym: the only item missing was a stability ball- no TV in the bedroom - I know that was by design but it was missed, especially if you have someone on the sofabed- highly recommend black out curtains in the bedrooms - the light shining from porch lights from other villas in the middle of the night is irritating- the free bottle of mosquito repellent was appreciated - even if it did little to prevent the number of bites!
The resort is located in the mountains of a rain forest and looks beautiful. However, the rain forest mountain resort comes with mosquitos and ants. I had to go to the store and purchase bug spray to fumigate my room. I still got bit multiple times. The staff and managers are very friendly and the food is good. It's an easy walk down to the beach but you need a ride back up the hill to get to your rooms. This is not a 4 star hotel, but maybe a nice 2 to 3 star hotel at best.
My husband and I spent a week in this absolutely delightful place last year!A small boutique hotel nestled on a hillside with 1 and 2 bedroom apartments facing the sea with glorious views of the gorgeous mile Long Beach called Grand Anse.The manager and his staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. Everyone was a joy to be around and the service was impeccable!!The hotel is a riot of colors which gave an uplifting feeling to the hotel.There are go carts to take you down to the beach. We enjoyed walking thru a lovely garden area to get there! Delightful in ever
My family and I enjoyed everything about this resort! The staff is friendly; they made us feel comfortable and attended to our every need. I must specifically mention Oddisa who assisted us in securing the reservation, Amika who was always available at the front desk with helpful tips and Carlene, one of the resort managers who was like our personal tour guide; she advised us on the best places to visit on the island and also told and showed (on a map) how to get there. The Villas are clean and have every amenity that you can need during your stay including washer and dryer, iron and ironing board, safe, hangers, hair dryer and even a makeup mirror! We never had to ask for new linen, towels or even pillows as the cupboards were stocked with these items. The bedrooms are large and 2 of the beds in our 3 bedroom Villa were king sized beds; that's definitely something that you want to lie on while on vacation. We enjoyed the view from the balcony and I especially enjoyed the privacy of the balcony attached to my room. The welcome banana bread and water was a wonderful surprise and we looked forward to receiving the 'Goodnight' cookies each night. The gym was stocked with adequate and essential equipment, towels and water. Breakfast was amazing; having access to buffet items as well as being able to order a la carte was definitely a winner! And all of the breakfast items tasted delicious as well! My son especially enjoyed watching the birds visit the breakfast tables and try to secure breakfast items. He also loved the facilities at the Beach Club; the table tennis board, the croquet field, the hockey pitch and the volleyball net. I liked that you could collect fresh beach towels at the beach and return them right there! My family and I also enjoyed the scrumptious meals and the menu offerings at Savvy's on the beach. In addition, the resort has its own little nook on the world famous Grand Anse Beach, if that's not an attraction I don't know what is! Away from the resort, Grenada is a beautiful historic little island. We drove through the capital St. George's where we visited the National Museum and had lunch at Patrick's; a homely restaurant with an array of delectable local dishes. We ventured to Gouyave; the hometown of Olympian Kirani James. While there we visited Douglaston Estate where we learnt about the production of cocoa and purchased local spices including the infamous Grenada nutmeg. We also visited Jouvay Chocolate Factory in Diamond Estate, Victoria; the chocolate there is locally grown and produced, there is free tasting, the prices are reasonable and the chocolate is rich! Being in Grenada we had to sample their local favourites so we visited Umbrella's Beach Bar, ate food from the food vans located at the junction close to the resort (a spot known locally as 'Wall Street'), had Sugar and Spice ice-cream at Spiceland Mall which is within walking distance from the resort and sampled local rum at Westerhall Estate's and Clarke's Court. Our trip to Grenada was fabulous! We will definitely be back and there is no other place we will consider staying than at Mount Cinnamon Resort and Beach Club! Thank you so much for your hospitality!
My husband and I chose Mt Cinnamon for our 29th wedding anniversary vacation. I did read reviews before we came and I did hear about the hills to climb, but I was not prepared the steep climbs to and from the villas and suites.Our flight was delayed coming in to Grenada so we arrived later than we expected, we were greeted by a gentleman who offered us cold drinks which was very nice. We were asked to wait in the lounge while the receptionist assisted someone.( there was no one there) Soon afterward another couple walked in the gentleman again ushered them to the lounge and gave them drinks. Next the receptionist comes to the lounge and goes to the newly arrived couple and checks them in.Not nice or efficient. She asked us if we had a reservation, looked confused and at one point told us jet blue had not paid the hotel.It was angering and embarrassing. We were taken to our room by golf cart by the same receptionist whose attitude was one of exasperation, it was Saturday.The Villa was large two floors and very luxurious, I would come again just for the veranda views and the villa, they are excellent, no problems here, we thoroughly enjoyed it.In our villa were two suitcases, not ours, the helper had taken our bags to the wrong rooms, the second couple got our bags we got theirs. That was quickly rectified and we went down to dinnerDinner options and entertainment were very good, prices fine, but no Caribbean fare for dinner ( they should add at least one)..Time for bed, the beds are comfortable, but my husband and I laughed each time we got into it because it is so high up, It was fun getting in it but an elderly person couldn't get in or on, I however loved it. Breakfast- the most fun of the stay, at breakfast there were Caribbean offerings, bake and saltfish, coconut bake and smoked herring, cinnamon hot chocolate, golden apple juice, I loved it, as well as contemporary fare, bacon eggs yada yada yada. Breakfast which is included was great.The beach is perfect, great view, great service, located at the end of a beautifully manicured garden, we went every day, the water is great even when its rough. Loved it.Beach cabana and Saavy food offerings were good, the fish cakes were on point and the Burger was delicious, prices reasonable.Nutmeg and bay leaf ice cream... beyond!!!Service- the staff are so kind and attentive, everyone is friendly,( well almost everybody) the servers in the restaurant were the best, the guys who ran us up and down the hill were the best, everyone says hello, asks how you are enjoying your stay and are always willing to help, we got goodnight cookies after day #2 each night, cookies were delivered to our room, so cute ( I read about turn down service I never got that). At the beach bar the cook made us food even though it was late, he was awesome.Transfers from the beach to your rooms and back are available, call and request them as a hard days vegging can make one quite tired. All in all I thoroughly enjoyed Mt Cinnamon and once I got around the up and down the hill I was OK, If I had to walk those hills I would be unhappy, so forget the hills,If you want luxury, exquisite views, and a great Caribbean breakfast Mt Cinnamon should be your choice.
