Radisson Grenada Beach Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We spent the week before Christmas at the Radisson and had a wonderful time. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were also clean, well-furnished, comfortable, and large. Our rooms were on the second floor, and we had a good-sized balcony with table and chairs on it that we could sit on and drink coffee. (Incidentally, we chose a "garden view" location and was happy with it; we could see a slice of the ocean from our room, and I'm not sure the ocean view premium was worth it.) The rooms were equipped with small refrigerators, which came in handy. There is a grocery store literally across the street from the Radisson, so we bought milk/cereal and soft drinks to cut down on food costs at the resort.That being said, we ended up eating breakfast at the hotel most mornings. The buffet had a large selection of both traditional American favorites (pancakes, omelet station, sausage etc.) along with local specialties (guava jam, fruit that looked like papaya but called something else, etc.) The resort includes the standard amenities: a couple of pools (although during the time we were there, the saltwater pool was closed), a dive shop where you were entitled to one free hour of nonmotorized water sports (eg, sea kayaking), billiards table, well-equipped workout room, and a spa. If I had a complaint at all about the facilities, it's that the jacuzzis are not hot tubs, i.e., they are connected to and empty out into the regular pools, so the water is the same temperature. I'm a wimp; I like my jacuzzis to be hot tubs. Grand Anse beach is lovely, with smooth white sand and warm waters. You won't be surfing in these waves, but depending on the tide, the waves might be tall enough to give you some fun body-surfing wave action.Here's what you need to know about the island in general: Grenada is not as touristy as many other Caribbean islands I have been to (e.g., Aruba, Turks & Caicos, or Cayman). You won't find parasailing or waverunners here, nor will you find endless row of tacky tourist shop after tourist shop. I don't know if our trip is typical, but the week we were there it was not crowded at all... it was not uncommon for us to go down to the beach and see at best half a dozen other people there. I personally loved it, and my family felt as though we were getting a genuine experience in a foreign country as opposed to, say, a cruise ship experience. But if you're looking for a more active night life or stereotypical spring break beach type of experience, Grenada might not be the island for you.The second important thing for you to know is that Grenada has much more than beach life to offer. The interior is replete with tropical rain forests and absolutely gorgeous waterfalls, and you should make every effort to go touring around. We hired a gentleman named Alban who came up to us on the beach and offered to be our guide. We spent two days driving around with him to various sites: Concord and Annendale Falls, a nutmeg factory, a chocolate factory, rum distillery, etc. etc. One of the highlights of the trip was a tubing expedition down a river running through part of the rain forest. It was spectacularly beautiful and exciting fun. Don't miss it. We also did a catamaran cruise to two snorkeling sites, one of which is the famous Underwater Sculpture Park, which consists of about a dozen sculptures that were sunk to create man-made reefs. In sum, if you're trying to decide to come to Grenada, here's the main factors I think you should consider: Grenada is beautiful, untouristy, uncrowded, and has more hiking and other activities to do besides the beach. You truly feel like you are in another country and not just rubbing elbows with transplanted tourists. However, although we enjoyed the underwater sculpture park, we found the snorkeling at Aruba, Bonaire, and Grand Cayman to be more spectacular. So I think it will depend on what your primary goals are. If you're primarily interesting in snorkeling or scuba diving, you may want to choose one of the other islands. Otherwise I recommend Grenada and the Radisson highly.
Absolutely amazing experience. Beautiful resort. Friendly and welcoming staff, always making sure you get the best of the best. Loved the fact that there are several pools to choose where you want to relax (some quieter than others). Our room had a beach view - it was wonderful waking up every morning and seeing the clear blue water :)I'd like to take this opportunity to thank a few of the staff who made sure our stay was truly memorable:Rayond - That warm smile you gave us when we first arrived at the resort, along with your constant dedication to ensuring we were comfortable during our stay was the highlight of our trip. Thank you so much! We cannot wait for our next visit to meet you again. Vinodh - Thank you sir! We are all so grateful for the kindness you shown to us during our stay. We will certainly be reaching to you prior to our next visit to GND.Greg - Thank you for everything! You were always ready to help, even if meant going out of your way!Kendra - Thank you, thank you! Dinner was always such pleasure thanks to you! I still reminisce on that amazing pasta you recommended. Davidson and Stevon - You guys were so entertaining! Thank you for making the extra effort in ensuring we got the best service. Octavia and Jenny - Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on our next visit :)Definitely recommend this resort to anyone going to Grenada :) ! You guys will love it.
Housekeeping failed to replenish coffee, bottle water, sweeteners, and creamers every day. Only had decaf coffee. Pool was green entire stay. Read reviews and it had been green since 4 January.Beach view blocked by big tree. Complained to desk and they said they would move us later the 10 January but never happen.Cruise ship passengers were dumped in our beach area every day and along with the roaming vendors makes this an undesirable place to stay.Had to walk about 1000 feet to get beach towels everyday, only one towel hut and it was on the other end of the resort.Staff in the bars and restaurants were not adequately trained to wait and service the customers. Errors in orders, poor service. The staff would hang around the bar talking and ignore costumers, sometimes waiting more than 20 minutes to be recognized. Found out on our last day that breakfast was free for our entire stay. But nobody told me and it wasn't in my documents. So we lost $400 in food cost by not using this included benefit in our stay.No layout map of the resort was offered or available. No booklet in the room or available covering the resort and its services. Phone charges not displayed or readily available.Access to beach was blocked by a picketed fence with very few entry/exit points.Numerous lounge chairs were setup on the beach immediately in front of the Radisson, but not identified as to the owners. Sat in two white chairs and were told they were $10 each for the day. I contacted the desk and they said theirs were the blue ones which were not setup on the beach or readily available. They were stored in stacks 50 feet from the beach and you had to care yourself. No beach service!Overall I could go on but the jest is it's not a very good place to stay!
Great hotel, awesome staff, good food and an overall wonderful experience. I loved the waterfront rooms which allowed me to hear the ocean all night. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. Thanks Carmen! Beach was AMAZING!
My stay at the Radisson was a fantastic one. I want to take a moment to thank Mr.Kendall Jackasal for his kindness and generosity. I was invited to the management cocktail party and met some of the other guest as well as the other members of the management team. The staff went above and beyond to make sure my stay was a pleasant one. I want to also thank the staff at the oasis grill and the pool bar for always making my drinks perfect. Had a great beach front room,amazing view.Jenny morin
