Spice Island Beach Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Spice Island is one of the most accommodating hotel resorts I have been to. Nothing is too much for them. I would suggest you pre order your lunch before going to reduce your wait time in the restaurant. The food is excellent and was different everyday we were there. All the staff were helpful and pleasant. I would thoroughly recommend this resort. It is family friendly.
Grenadians are overall very friendly and outgoing...we enjoyed a morning adventure into St. George's, the capital...visited various shops, the national museum, Fort George, and ended our walkaround at BB's right on the harbor for an early lunch.. Perfect food in a perfect setting. Back to Spice Island Beach Resort...amazing setting directly on Grand Anse beach...crystal blue waters right off the back patio, spotless grounds, friendly, efficient service at every turn, varied menu at each meal, and our massage at The Spa was pure magic. No problems, no worries...a wonderful experience for my wife & I. Looking to return.
This was our fourth visit to Spice Island Beach Resort . Our stay this time was disappointing. We stay in the sea grape suites right on the beach. The location is very good, right on a wonderful long stretch of sandy beach. However the sand had been banked up to prevent water getting into the rooms, as happens occasionally during storm surges or when there are high swells. Consequently our view of the sea was obscured.Spice Island Beach Resort has the potential to be a great hotel but some major changes are needed in the way it is run. The staff are mostly very good and standards are very high in general but service is often very slow.Every meal is served in a very formal manner, breakfast lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.Breakfast is a quite disappointing affair with a very limited selection of pastries and fruit and the cooked choices not always cooked to perfection. An egg station would ensure prompt service and better-cooked eggs. Any sauce you request usually arrives well after the food you need it for, if at all.Lunch taken in the bar restaurant is better but again is very slow. A daily buffet would be better and quicker. They do a very successful buffet with a barbeque on Sundays.In the evening dinner is a pretentious affair with a choice of supposedly gourmet dining. Sadly the chef seems unable to deliver anything like gourmet food. Last year we found the food was better than this year. If they are to live up to the billing, there really needs to be someone in the kitchen with experience in good French, US or British hotels or restaurants.On several occasions there was nothing on the menu we wanted and asked in advance if we could have alternatives which they were happy to do. Don’t ask for lasagne though. The one we were served was ground beef sandwiched between thick sheets of paste, topped with melted cheddar cheese. Nothing like any lasagne I have been served in Italian restaurants.The house wines (included in the all-inclusive package) are of mediocre quality and the alternatives from the wine list are very expensive.The one afternoon tea we had consisted of stale bread with no spread, filled with plantains and dried-up ham. The cake was inedible – even the birds ignored it.The entertainment consists of bands which for the most part rely on drum machines or backing tracks. They quickly drive most of the guests away to bed. The exception is the steel band which performs weekly. They take a half-hour break just as the guests are finishing dinner. By the time they return from their break, most of the guests have gone to bed. The island of Grenada is lovely and the people warm and friendly. We would go back there without hesitation but would not consider Spice Island Beach Resort unless the food improves.
Ten days of absolutely luxury in a wonderful resort on a beautiful island. Spice Island Beach Resort well surpassed our already high expectations. Set on the quiet end of stunning Grand Anse beach, the hotel buildings and gardens were perfection. We upgraded to a Seagrape suite on arrival as my husband had been injured and could not cope with the steps up to the Oleander rooms. What a great decision. We had a huge room with two queen sized beds; a large bathroom with a big bath with separate shower. We also had a sitting area and then an outside covered terrace with a fan and another private lower terrace with sunbeds and a hammock. All steps from the wonderful beach and fabulous sea and swimming. Service was outstanding. Everyone seemed to know your name after one day and the constant friendliness and smiles just helped us to relax even more on a holiday which we nearly had to cancel. Everyone from the restaurant and bar staff, reception, porters, cleaners and gardeners all greeted you without exception yet the service was fun and light. There was very good team work throughout.The weather was mixed but a comfortable 80-85 degrees during the day. Humidity was high, but manageable with such good air conditioning in the rooms. The outdoor dining areas were varied and comfortable.Food was also outstanding and copious. We were introduced to many different local fruits and vegetables along with some excellent local fish. The only problem was that everything was so tempting that our waistlines suffered as a result! Rooms had a good selection of mini-bar drinks but bar to beach service was so good during the day, one rarely needed the alcohol in the rooms. Fellow guests were friendly and interesting. The Hopkin family host a cocktail party every week which gives everyone a good opportunity to meet fellow guests. It is delightful to come across a luxury hotel where the whole family are so involved in all aspects of its management. Given the opportunity we would go back in a heartbeat. This is the best hotel we have ever stayed in. We have fallen in love with Grenada and its people and as my husband could only swim and relax this time, we are determined to return so that he can go on all the adventures that I had. We had great service from Charmaine from Insight Tourism, Grenada; Nick Taxi and Tour Services and Aquanauts Grenada.Thank you Spice Island team from 'the Lucas' for an unforgettable and wonderful holiday.
This was our second visit to Spice Island Beach Resort . We stay in the sea grape suites right on the beach ,how can you beat opening your doors and setting in a comfy lounge on the beach ? And drinks offered continually by the beach server? The hotel is owned and run by The Hopkin family , this is not a corporate hotel. Each staff member feels a part of the family and it shows in the highest level of service . The food and drink are included in the cost so you never have to think about costs or tips all week. The food is mostly all local and fresh , varied and delicious . Many guests are repeat visitors , many from England but with Jet Blue flying in now more Americans will visit . Spa is clean and peaceful, swimming pool wonderful , we will be back !
