We’ve just returned from a 14 night stay at Mount Cinnamon. Having previously read all the reviews our expectations were high and overall we were not disappointed.The staff were lovely, so friendly & helpful, happy and always there when needed. We ate 3 times in the restaurant and the food was great.Beautiful views everywhere, from our room and all around the resort.The Manager, Mark, could not have been nicer, and was constantly checking that we were happy and asking if we needed anything. The steps down to the beach were a bit of a challenge in the intense heat but it was worth it once there, never busy always clean and tidy.The weather was really hot & humid with some heavy downpours mostly at night.We got bitten by mosquitos and would recommend to anyone visiting, especially in the rainy season, to take lots of precautions and remedies!We moved from one room to a smaller one because we wanted to be higher up with a better view so we chose one of the new Cinnamon Suites which was great. The shower had a design fault in that there was no shower tray as such, hence the floor got rather wet - obviously we used the shower mat provided which got soaked every time so wasn’t useful in itself.The beds were really comfortable - unlike the beach sun beds which could do with upgrading.The first accommodation we had was a one bedroom two bathroom suite overlooking the pool - it was a little shabby & again could do with a makeover. The air con unit leaked slightly too.Unfortunately I was unwell during my stay so didn’t feel like doing any sightseeing, but next time I definitely will as I’m sure there is much to explore.Overall we had a wonderful holiday with our friends and felt sad to leave this lovely hotel!
From the time we arrived to the time we left a week later, the staff, beach, food and views exceeded our expectations. We met other wonderful travelers from the UK, Germany and other parts of the US. The Beach here is so beautiful and relaxing. Savvy's beach club during the day had the best fish tacos on the island and the best mudslides (frozen drink). We usually take day trips each day but the beach was so inviting and relaxing, we spent many days just staying at the beach. There are beach chairs, umbrellas, towels and tables for the guests. we brought our "floaties" (rings to float in the water) and relaxed for hours with our drinks in hand. The hotel is on the far side of Grand Anse Beach but other venues were within walking distance down the beach. Very safe at night. Dinner is usually served up at the main building but on Friday nights, they light the way with tiki torches and have a bon fire and dinner down at the beach with a steel drum band and dancers. just lovely. Our 2 bedroom/2 bath suite was perfect for two couples staying together. I won't sugar coat the walk up the hill from the lobby where breakfast is served, however this was the best way to keep the pounds off without really trying. Mount Cinnamon's daily breakfast was one of the healthiest and best tasting parts of their menu. Dinner is also great. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. Really the small vibe, the wonderful staff/management (Mark, Kevin, Ashlyn, etc...... was the icing on the cake!)
Parking up at the hotel, crossed the road and headed down a flame lit path to arrive at a beautiful outside bar and restaurant on Grand Andre beach, just wow!!! Friday night, bonfire and steak followed by drummers and dancers. Food was delicious and not over priced. Absolute perfection. Take me back! Definitely have a meal here if your in Grenada.. 10/10
This was my first time to Grenada and chose this resort in light of the new Cinnamon Suites and it was located close to family that was also visiting for an event. Overall this property was a good choice with some minor issues.Airport pick up: We arranged pick up from the airport with the hotel but waited for some time (and after a couple of calls to the hotel looking for the driver) we finally ended up taking a taxi. We would have expected that the hotel would have had the driver at the airport on time.Check in: Smooth, very friendly and professional staff. We were greeted with cold towels and offered rum punch. We didn't wait long for our room and were taken to our suite on the golf cart.Room: The room is exactly as seen on the resort's website. The bed is very comfortable, there is a cell phone for calls to taxis, restaurants, front desk etc, and a small fridge. We also requested a microwave which was in the room when we arrived. We didn't spend as much time on the balcony as we normally do when we travel to the islands (when you sit in the chairs the bars on the balcony block the view) but it is a beautiful view indeed from the room and from the bed given the wide tall windows and sliding glass door. The TV had excellent reception with many channels. The bathroom was a nice size with a closed water closet, and shower with good water pressure and temperature.Minor room issues: There is very limited drawer space for clothing. There is a small closet with shelves and a small area to hang clothes and a safe. There is also a dressing/makeup area to the left of the closet which should probably have been designed as a set of drawers. My only issue with the shower is that I'm not a fan of the rain shower head since it can't be adjusted.Food: Food was my biggest complaint (not limited to Mount Cinnamon). In general, I found the food in Grenada to be not great, especially compared to other Caribbean islands (east and west), Mexico, Central America etc. The breakfast was ok, great coffee but hit or miss on the rest and often cold. (There is a small buffet and you can also order eggs etc off the menu). The best options I thought were at the beach bar/restaurant and that food always came out hot. We did go down to the Friday bonfire night but didn't stay to eat but it looked nice. We were not fond of the beer (Carib, Stag) no local light beers (only Coors Light). We purchased wine/sparkling wine from the grocery store down the hill.Beach cabanas/restaurant: Great - the beach is wide, not crowded, clean and the water (though a bit cold) was very nice. We only tried appetizers from the restaurant but they were good for a snack.Staff: Always professional, courteous and helpful. Excellent and friendly staff. The management staff we met were also very personable.Property: Beautiful flowers about, very clean and we didn't mind the walk up the hills. The pool is very small adjacent to the lobby but we are not pool people so it wasn't an issue for us.One thing management should be aware of - on our last evening, staff came by as usual to bring cookies that are wrapped in a Mount Cinnamon wrapper. Since it was our last night, I asked if I could have two cookies (one for each of my kids to bring home). She told us she couldn't give us another cookie "because they check." Oh my, that's terrible. Not her fault, but really, management, you can't give out an extra cookie and you advise staff to say that management checks? Very tacky.Grenada in general: We felt very safe, the country is clean and the people are very friendly. The beaches were also beautiful. We probably would not visit Grenada again since we are foodies and prefer a bit more to do and see (we did take a 2 - 3 hour tour of the island).Tip: I purchased mosquito coils and spray at the grocery store. Even in the room, I found pesky nats or mosquitoes and had to use the coils from time to time but certainly outside.
My wife and I just returned home from a two week trip to the West Indies. Our stay at Mt. Cinnamon during the first half of our vacation was easily the highlight of the trip. You should believe all the glowing reviews you read about the staff at Mt. Cinnamon. Helpful, friendly, and professional are words that come to mind. I have stayed at resorts all over the world and can't remember anyplace where so many staff people greeted me by name and treated me so well. It's something I will always remember about this place. In my mind the crew at Mt. Cinnamon sets a standard of excellence that other resorts in the area will be hard pressed to equal.We stayed in one of the new hotel style Cinnamon Suites which offered a beautiful view of the bay and the mountains in the distance. The well lit room was very clean and tastefully decorated. The air conditioning was powerful enough to make the room down right cold if that is your taste. Internet access was reliable and fast (which we found to be somewhat of a rarity in the West Indies). The bed was comfortable and a pod style coffee machine in the room provided a great way to start each day. I highly recommend a cup of brew first thing in the morning while enjoying the view from your private veranda.The staff booked a 4 hour island tour for us with Chris and it was a wonderful experience. Grenada is a beautiful place with lots of history. It is definitely worth seeing. Having said that, we spent every other day at the Beach Club enjoying the drinks, sports equipment (hobie cat, paddle boards, snorkeling gear all included) and just generally lazing around! It was an amazingly relaxing time. We attended the complimentary Manager's Cocktail event one evening by the pool which ended up being a very pleasant time to meet and get to know the staff a little bit. The Friday night feast at the Beach Club was another event we attended and again was up to the high standards within the rest of Mt. Cinnamon. Live music, local dancers, and great food were all part of the experience.We ate breakfast every day at Savvy's and also had dinner one evening. As you would expect the food was quite good and service was top notch. Don't miss the breakfast burrito in the morning!Several reviewers mention the walk from the hotel itself to the Beach Club. It is a very short walk (less than 5 minutes) in very pleasant surroundings. The walk up the hill to our room required a small amount of effort, but is certainly doable for just about anyone who is mobile (including my wife who is just coming off hip replacement surgery). The staff will also take you straight up to your room in a golf cart style vehicle making it basically a non-issue.Would I stay here again when I come to Grenada? I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
