Spice Island Beach Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Went with my wife and kids to Spice Island Beach Resort in late August. Had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The resort is a simple one with a lovely beach, swimming pool and restaurants. There is a kids club as well. The kids club is of a good standard, they do some arts and crafts and there is a wii and xbox etc. The beach is very lovely and is a selling point of the resort. The service was gyenerally excellent although one or two staff lacked knowledge of certain things. For instance when we went to the reception to ask about day trips, the woman Keira seemed perplexed and said she was not sure about these and to speak to our travel rep. I booked our whole trip on ba.com so had no travel rep per se. She seemed surprised and suggested we contact the virgin rep. I was a little surprised she had no contacts of any travel companies or any suggestions whatsoever even if the hotel themselves don't organise trips. Once she saw my disappointment she did make an effort to draw circles on a map around some key spots in the country worth visiting. She also gave some good advice not to try driving on the island myself as it is not well signposted. I looked online and read a telegraph article about a guide called Telfor who has won an award for his guiding work. I called him as I found his number online and he came in our car and did a guided day tour which was an incredible experience. The food in the restaurants varies between good to excellent. Most dishes are very good, some superb, I was overall very impressed and contented with the food on offer. It's important to try different things and the chef was very accommodating in making fried plantain for us on request which we love! There was one day I was somewhat surprised as we were relaxing by the beach side bar and we were told we could not have ice cream at the bar and had to go to a restaurant table to eat this. Ice cream can also be consumed poolside. I was surprised and asked a manager for an explanation and they simply stated this was house policy. The hotel is a little old English in some regards in expecting guests to wear trousers for dinner and the ice cream rule, there's a flavour of my old private school manners about the place. Once I got used to that I found it fine although I have to say I think it's a dated approach and they should move with the times and let guests come for dinner in shorts and allow them to eat ice cream by the pool side bar! Also the ice cream wasn't very tasty and they really need to explore getting a new brand in. The milkshakes though were very tasty so not sure if they used different ice cream in there. The alcohol on offer is a good variety although generally not top shelf, there were a few such as Johnnie walker blue label though, in any event the regular drinks such as rum were very nice and a good variety. The bedrooms are impeccable and absolutely lovely, top end five star standard. The bathrooms hansgrohe and v&b, really excellent. We went during a quiet week and were lucky to get an upgrade to a Seagrape suite which was amazing being by the beach. Bear in mind there are some local touts on the beach, none of the beaches in Grenada are completely private. However the touts are rarely seen, only early in the mornings usually. The hotel has some sort of arrangement with an independent water sports company which has a shack on the beach. However the guy in there seemed strangely inhospitable. He took us on a snorkel out from the beach (we wanted someone to take us to the best areas with coral) and was mildly friendly and helpful then, the next day I asked him if there are any boat trips we could arrange and he said "what kind of boat trip" sounding perplexed, on the whole I was not impressed by the standard or service from the water sports centre, although it wasn't really necessary as we were quite happy relaxing for the week and the pool and grounds of the resort as mentioned were delightful. All in all we had a fantastic time and enjoyed the stay thoroughly. True Caribbean hospitality. Sir Royston the owner was there some days when we were there, he is a delightful hardworking person, who cares passionately about the resort and high quality service, that is a big selling point of this small boutique resort. I would definitely return as it was a wonderful experience.
If you stay at Spice Island Beach Resort you'll know you've stayed like royalty considering that's where the likes of Prince Harry and many dignitaries have laid their head when coming to Grenada and now I know why.This resort is 'beautiful' - the only adjective needed when describing this luxury resort feet away from the world famous Grand Anse Beach. I love Grenada !!!
My father organised a family holiday here and what can I say – just WOW! This is without a doubt one of the best resorts in the world. We stayed in a Seagrape right by the beach and loved every minute of it – even when it rained! There was a good selection of food at the resort and each day we tried different a Grenadian dish. They even cooked us Grenada’s national dish – Oil Down – which was a very complicated/complex meal to cook! One of the many highlights was the night when the New Dimension steel band played. They are amazing! All in all, we loved Grenada and Spice Island is the place to stay if you visit the island. Thank you to every member of staff! You made our family holiday extra special.
This was our first trip to Grenada and Spice Island. From the moment we entered the resort and until we left we were treated with such care and attention and genuine warmth it made us feel so welcome. The staff at this resort are so proud of their facility and their island and they want you to enjoy your stay so they go above and beyond to ensure your every need is catered for. This is a family run beach resort and the family many of whom we spoke with take a real interest and carein their business, and of heir guests and staff.After our reception where we were greeted with cold towels and a cold glass of fizz we found that we had been upgraded and we stayed in a Sea grape suit which was pure luxury and backed onto the beach and was only a few steps from the sea.In the room you are provided with Molten Brown shampoos, creams etc, there is a shower and bath, safe and a well stocked mini bar that is constantly replenished.The main restaurant is used for both breakfast and dinner. Lunch is served in an adjoining area near the bar. Both are open out to the beach and great views are had of he Sea and beach. One of the best things l liked was that you did not have to book for any meals but turned up whenever you liked. The food at all times was wonderful and beautifully cooked and nothing was too much of a problem. The menu is not huge but there is more than enough choices and varied and if not you can order off menu.The whole site is very clean and the gardens are wonderful. There is limited entertainment in the evenings which did not bother us as we were there for relaxation. However the acts we had were top notch and very professional.My wife and l both had a massage which was very relaxing, professional and reasonably priced.We both loved this resort and in particular the way the staff genuinely look after you and make you feel both valued and welcome.I now know why so many people return time and time again. We have visited many places around the world but Spice Island was special to us and we will return.I am sorry I could not remember all the names of the staff that treated us so well and knew us all by name and it would be wrong to name just a few. As a result l would like to thank ALL the staff for making our holiday so special.
We chose Spice Island Beach Resort for our honeymoon. We were welcomed at the airport by a friendly staff member, who knew our name and where we had come from. When we arrived at the resort several employees graciously greeted us by name, congratulations, and smiles. We received signature drinks at check in and had champagne, chocolates and fresh fruit in our room. We were upgraded to a nicer suite and they made sure we had everything we needed or could imagine. The room had a beautiful design, was clean, comfortable, well maintained and supplied with anything you might need. We had a private pool suite which was the best decision, it made it so unique and special! The food was outstanding, we didn't have a bad meal. The quality was superb, the menu choices varied everyday however if you wanted to have something again or had special requests they were happy to meet your desires. The service was friendly, polite, the ambiance was great and the view was breath-taking. The hotel is overall beautiful, has the perfect setting on the best beach in Grenada, and had the most amazing staff. They made our honeymoon so memorable by making us feel so welcomed, treated us with such care, and made sure to help us plan unforgettable excursions. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone and would not stay at any other hotel in Grenada!!!
