Spice Island Beach Resort

- All Inclusive Features
As an increasingly ‘grumpy old Man’ and cynic I very rarely stay anywhere without finding an aspect of the experience that I would improve ! Spice Island is quite simply faultless, helped by the wonderful setting in the special Island of Grenada. The staff are truly wonderful and above all happy which is a credit to the culture that Sir Royston and his excellent Management Team have created. The 5 star food is tremendous with huge variety and a willingness to create whatever you would like if it’s not on the daily menu Whilst the Beach Rooms are small you open the patio and are directly on one of the best Beaches in the World ! As I stated I cannot find anything that isn’t truly wonderful it’s a special place we will be back and cannot recommend Spice Island too highly This is a special experience. Excellent for families or Weddings we attended Dan and Karen’s Jewish Wedding whilst we were here it was beautiful service despite the weather. Ian Kinga Lily
Well, where to start? Words just can't do justice to this place, but I'll give it a try. From the moment we arrived, we felt like we'd returned home - that's how warm and welcoming every member of staff is, even though this was our first visit! The resort itself is immaculate, with rooms having been recently refreshed. They had just re-opened days before our arrival after a short closure to install some new features (mainly a new outdoor pavilion on the beach which will be used for morning yoga - a beautiful setting indeed!). The resort is set on Grande Anse beach, one of the biggest and best beaches on the island. It's a public beach, however the resort is monitored constantly by security guards, and you never feel that there could be any issues. Comfortable loungers are plentiful, and the warm sea and spotless sand are immaculate and so inviting. Going back to the resort itself, the pool is just the right size for the size of the resort, perfect for a refreshing dip to cool off in the afternoon sun. The included watersports are great (we only took out some kayaks, but they also have paddle boarding, hobie cats, snorkeling etc included as part of the all inclusive package). The food is also exceptional, with plenty of choice at all meal times. Everything is cooked fresh to order, and the choice is varied and plentiful. However, if nothing takes your fancy, the kitchen team are more than happy to make you something off-menu - my friend loved the vegetable roti she had on the first day so much that she had them make it for her every lunch time while we were there! You really will not go hungry (or thirsty!). The drinks are of a high quality, and the Spice Island Classic and Liquid Sunshine are my top tips from the cocktail menu. Delicious! Last but not least, I have to give mention to the staff, from the grounds staff, housekeeping, waiting staff, reception, through to management and even the owner and his family (who have a continuous presence around the resort) - every one of them does their best to make sure you feel at home. You really feel that nothing is too much trouble, and they really do want to make your stay a memorable one - and boy did they do that! Never have I been to a resort where the staff are quite so invested in their clients happiness, and the sheer volume of repeat guests we met while there shows that this is what sets Spice Island apart from other luxury resorts of their kind. We completely fell in love with this place, so much so we're already planning a return visit in May 2018 - and I'm sure it'll feel just like going home!
Just returned from a dream vacation in Spice Island resort, Grenada. This is our 4th visit to this resort and we felt so special when Sir Royston Hopkin, his son Ryan and Management team were there to bid us farewell. During our short stay,they were always there to make us feel welcome.The Seagrape beach Suite was so inviting, immaculate, nicely furnished,Morton Brown toiletries and towels were soft and smelt so fresh. The two queen size beds were very comfortable with 4 pillows and all the bed linens to allow you to relax and enjoy a good night’s sleep. You open the patio door and there is a sofa, table and two chairs with a ceiling fan if needed. Two steps down, there are two comfortable padded lounging chairs and a hammock under an umbrella. You can relax and view the famous Grand Anse Beach, listening to the clear blue water rolling onto the sandy beach. There are lounging chairs closer to the beach and there was no problem securing them for your use. The beach was not crowded and the odd vendor would pass to offer your his wares. A simple no thank you and they were on their way.We have never experienced this high level of personalized service in the Caribbean, being fellow Caribbean residents. The owners and Management team set their standard very high and this sets the resort in the diamond category.The meals are nicely presented, satisfying and the menu is wide and varied. The breakfast menu offers lots of fresh fruits, juices, pastries, cold and hot dishes. The lunch menu has the chef’s favourites and so many choices for the hearty eaters, light options and the vegetarians are catered too. The soups offered are very creamy and wholesome. All the bread,pastries, cakes and ice cream are made in house. I ordered an item on the menu that I enjoyed on my last visit 14 years ago and I could not believe that it tasted just as I remembered it. I enjoyed every mouthful. Although I was so full and satisfied, Janelle, the waitress offered me two scoops of the homemade avocado ice cream which I could not resist.We were too full to enjoy the afternoon high tea and I cannot comment on it.Thanks to head chef Jesson Church, the dinner menu is wide and varied. We enjoyed the choices we made and were very satisfied. The steel pan music added a special touch to the evening.We are looking to our next vacation in Spice Island Resort, hopefully next year.
In ways, there isn't anything I can add to the positive comments this place gets - and deserves. We had a fantastic week here (during which I celebrated a big birthday) and it was fantastic. The staff are helpful, attentive and friendly but also recognise that some guests are happy being quiet. The food was great - too good in ways as my weight showed on getting home! I'd recommend the fish options at breakfast. Rooms are well laid out, bed was comfortable and very good (and quiet) air conditioning. My only slight gripe was that there was a family with small toddler in the room next door and a lot of noise came through the connecting door as the sound-proofing was pretty minimal - so that was a bit trying (but fortunately they left part way through the week). It was great being able to walk out onto the beach, though - and the seating area on the 'terrace' was also really nice in the heat of the day. The hammock, whilst a good concept, wasn't that practical but that aside, a fantastic resort and definitely one I'd recommend (and hope to return to in the not-too-distant future)!
This is truly an amazing boutique hotel. The food is fantastic the hotel rooms are lovely with the most comfortable beds. The staff cannot do enough to make your stay special i only drink vodka and the frudge in my room was filled with vodka miniatures and tonics. This is a quiet hotel which is great for couples or adults. The beach is a stretch of golden sand and a romantic early morning stroll to the end is a must. Overall our holiday here was amazing.
