I think that 99% of reviewers have already sung the praises of the staff, the accommodation, the food, the ambience and many other positive points so I will not ramble on about how good it was. Suffice to say that my family and I all agreed that it is the best resort that we have ever visited in the Caribbean.The Christmas and New Year Celebrations and Gala Dinner were excellent, even though it rained very hard on New Years Eve, the fireworks were still spectacular.We have experienced other All inclusive resorts in the Caribbean and sometimes we have felt that the wine waiters were holding back. At Spice Island, it is completely different and it is easy to loose count of how many 'Top ups' one has consumed ! The Mini bar was also well stocked on a daily basis and the barman was happy to bring your preferences. When we arrived we had Regular Coke and Tonic in the fridge but thereafter we had diet coke and diet Tonic which was our preferences. Our Grandchildren were well catered for with very large containers of Apple Juice in the room.The Chef was most accommodating also. One morning I did not fancy the evening menu so I requested Oysters followed by Steak Tatare then Grand Marnier/ Orange crepes. What a meal that was! One day, my son requested a 'Horn of Plenty' as the name amused him from the days when he went to the local Beefeater. That evening, several arrived which were extremely authentic and very tasty.Our four Grandchildren were also well looked after at mealtimes and even strange requests such as Marmite toast were catered for with no fuss.The local shopping centre is within easy walking distance and there is a large Supermarket and local shops. There is also a large shop selling Hardware and whilst I never wanted anything I had a wander around out of curiosity and ended up buying an Air Mattress which the children( and the adults) enjoyed in the sea.There is very little to fault about Spice Island Resort but if I tried really hard here are my comments;-Toast at Breakfast time takes at least 30 minutes to arrive and often after one has finished eating.-The shower doors all seem to leak and one has to place a mat to collect the water.-From time to time Restaurant service is slow.- The 'Loan' Bicycle tyres all need pumping up !As you can see, there's not a lot to find fault with even after a 14 night stay and bearing in mind we were a party of 6 adults and 4 children, it is collective comments.All in all, a very enjoyable and memorable stay.Would we go back ?For sure.
We stayed at Spice Island Beach resort before Christmas and had a wonderful time at a fantastic resort.As has been said elsewhere, considering this a Caribbean resort, the level of service from the staff is exceptional. The hotel, I am sure, is the best on the island and we had no complaints with the quality of room, food, service or location.At times the service could be a little slow, but if you are used to the Caribbean then that is expected and it wasn't slow enough to be worthy of a complaint and is far better than anywhere else we have stayed in Caribbean (and we have travelled to the majority of the islands). The service doesn't quite match the top names within the eastern hotel industry (Oberoi, Ritz etc) but this is the best it gets in the Caribbean.The rooms were modern, immaculately clean and the mini-bar was restocked daily, as was the ice bucket. The staff are extremely flexible and keen to enhance your stay so any little quirks (like a fridge full of Diet Coke) was no issue for them.We also tried the room service one night, which was exceptional. The only charge for room service was a small tray charge ($10, I think) and the service is offered 24/7 with a really varied menu. If you wanted something particular, which wasn't on the menu, then I am sure they would have accommodated if they had the ingredients.The food was more akin to a fine dining experience, consisting of 7 courses and the space of time between each course was just right. We always choose hotels with A La Carte dining and sometimes find you can be back in bed, after a few drinks and food within an hour or so. This is far more of an event, isn't rushed in the slightest and is worthy of the time it takes to get ready. There is a dress code, it is quite strict, but it's not an issue and we were glad they enforced it (which we only saw once, with a non-guest).There were a couple of buffet nights whilst we were there, but it was a different level of buffet! You pick your food and the waiter brings it to your table, the food was terrific (considering it was a buffet) and was actually quite a nice change from the norm. There is also a BBQ at lunch once a week and this was my favourite time of the week; again it was buffet but the BBQ food was fantastic, varied and really enjoyable. The resort has a touch of class about it and, despite the high price point, we found it value for money and had a wonderful time. The guests are generally couples of the slightly older generation (we are early 30's so I think I can get away with saying that!) but due to the exclusiveness of the hotel, the cost and the relative quietness of Grenada, it's not a surprise that it's an older crowd who visited. Having said that, the guests were lovely, thoroughly interesting and made fantastic company at the bar in the evenings.I am sure we will be back but if you are researching and want to experience Caribbean luxury, you can't go far wrong!
I stayed at this beautiful hotel as a graduation gift from my dad. The staff are truly the most memorable from my visit due to their kindness, diligence and willingness to help you with any queries you possess. From the receptionists to the kitchen+restaurant staff and the housekeepers, they all had a smile and good, positive energy.I must also commend the chefs on their excellent cooking (breakfast and lunch were my favourite), especially the Sunday BBQ! I could not wait for breakfast every morning, lol!Of course, the rooms were also beautiful, clean and spacious (for the standard one I stayed in). The hammock outside was my favourite as I swung and enjoyed the sound of the waves.I will definitely return in the near future and will look forward to the great people, service, food and general ambience.Thank you Spice Island Beach Resort!
We enjoyed our stay at the Spice Island Beach Resort! Its is VERY expensive and all-inclusive but I believe it's worth it if you like to eat and drink a lot and don't want to explore much outside the hotel. The service is out of this world good! Everyone knows your names, all your requests, your wishes and your restrictions. It's really the best ever! The place is beautiful! Beautiful beach and facilities. The room is nice and comfortable. I believe they could improve the bed, bedding, pillows and towels for a better quality. It was ok but nothing to write home about. The food is really good! But again, we don't eat that much, so we thought it was way too much food for us. Breakfast wasn't that great though. They didn't have many options and the fruit wasn't good. And it seemed like every day they messed up my eggs - either by overcooking or doing the wrong one. Lunch and dinner were simply amazing and delicious! Lunch was usually slower service than dinner. The drinks were all very good and great quality! They had every single spirit you could think of. All top tier stuff. Wine and sparkling wine also pretty good. Pool service was very friendly as every other area but a bit on the slow side... We had a big issue that disappointed us but they did everything they could to fix it. We had reserved a day excursion to the Grenadines through them with a 3rd party vendor 2 months before our visit. The hotel forgot to confirm our tour and we only found out about it when we asked. They tried everything to keep us on the tour but there wasn't any more space left. They gave us a catamaran day tour complimentary which was nice but again, not what we expected. But all in all, we thought it was good. Oh, the kids club is nice but always empty so our 9 year old never wanted to go there... :( Net, net, beautiful place, great people, family run business who is actually all there all the time, good food, but way too much food for those of us that don't eat that much. I'd go back if they had other options than just all-inclusive for a more reasonable price.
We stayed here in October 2017 as a couple for 2 weeks (apologies for the delay on posting) and had the most fantastic time. We stayed in an Almond suite which had a pool and really enjoyed some lazy afternoons sunbathing and swimming in total peace. The main hotel pool, however, was also beautiful and never busy and the beach was beautiful so we were really spoilt for choice. with regard to service and food - nothing was too much trouble. The staff were so helpful and the choice of food was fantastic - and then if you really fancied something not on the menu, just ask and it will be made. My big test at breakfast was to ask for marmite - and within minutes it was brought to me in a bowl with a spoon to go with my toast. We had a great trip out organised by the hotel to go to the chocolate factory and the nutmeg plant and learnt so much about the island from our driver. On another day we used the hotel boat to have some time out aswell - and we were able to choose a "packed lunch" to our exact specifications. Loved this hotel ....it was quiet, and not a lot of evening entertainment but we met new friends, and I will recommend it to anyone and definitely look forward to going back .....its just the world is a big place and there are so many place to try.
