Great stop off after arriving in Grenada. This resort is right on the beach front with amazing views of the island and the Grand Anse beach. The service was good and staff were accommodating and pleasant.
Spice Island Beach Hotel is the best Resort so far I have stayed in. I stayed there in 2013 and this time I found the hotel renovated. Best reception, best hospitality, excellent management, clean dining, bed and beach areas. Well trained staff with smile and courtesy. No other hotels matches the satisfaction of stay here. Government ministries of 15 min distance. Airport is so close, just 15 min.
Elegant stylish hotel. All rooms beautiful with every need catered for. Sea Grape Beach Suites have the most stunning location, opening out into the white sand beach. If you are looking for lively fun please stay away. Sophisticated, unassuming luxury at its best. Staff amazingly attentive without being obtrusive. Some very lovely touches from melon & fruit kebabs served to your sun bed as a refreshing snack. Afternoon tea on the terrace. Caribbean music playing as you walk to dinner with flame torches lighting the way. Worth the money if you appreciate the finer things but if you like it big & brash this hotel is not for you. Well chosen menus that are changed daily, breakfast cooked to order. Small but perfectly formed in every way, you will not want to leave.
Spice Island has been my 1st ever trip to the Caribbean and I have to say it has blown me away. Perfect in every way. The location, the food and service are all very special. Thank you spice island for your hospitality and I hope to be back one day in the future.
Spice Island have managed to achieve a totally remarkable level of customer focus. They have found quite unexpected touches to make the guest experience special. Who would imagine change to a black napkin if wearing dark trousers. That is just an example of the lengths gone to to address guests by name on all occasions.
Our first visit to Grenada and the Spice Island Resort, and loved rest & relaxation in luxury accommodations in paradise. We were welcomed with a champagne cocktail and given a little tour of the resort & our rooms. Throughout our stay, everyone seemed to know our names from the gardeners to reception to food & beverage staff, and were always welcoming and attentive to ensure we enjoyed our stay and all our needs met. We typically don't do all-inclusive resorts, but the drinks and food here was all high-quality, specialized and freshly prepared - every meal was almost a gourmet dining experience. Breakfast got a little tired/redundant; the lunch menu changed twice where we were there and had daily specials; the dinner menu was different every night with a variety of options. Tea was delightful. We would have liked options for canapés post-beach and pre-dinner, but were able to get cheese & crackers delivered to the room. Guests from the U.K. and U.S. skewed older, but there were younger couples and families as well. This is a place to relax in peace, not party. If it was fully booked, we'd never know it - plenty of space at the beach, pool, restaurants and walking around. The resort is a little more formal but not in a very restrictive way - it's nice but there is no reason men can't wear more formal, leather sandals (and still not be in flip flops). Lunch is a bit more formal than anywhere else [luxury] we've ever stayed - would have liked a more casual option...it is a beach resort. We stayed in the Sea Grape rooms opening directly to a little patio with chaises on the beach. Plenty of room for two with a bedroom and large seating area. Comfortable bed. Luxury linens and amenities. Great water pressure. The resort stocked the minibar with our favorite beverages. The beach was beautiful! The sand is smooth and ocean clear and calm. Always comfortable chaises available. Beach service available throughout the day with attendants bringing cold towels and fruit from time to time. We could exchange wet beach towels for dry ones by the pool. One warning is that guests "reserve" chaises & umbrellas before 8am (too early!!), but don't use them. It's pretty frustrating to see unused beach setups when you're looking, as there are limited umbrellas. We didn't use the pool, but it looked lovely and well-maintained. The spa was in a pretty, relaxing setting, the massage treatment itself was perfunctory. It wasn't expensive and on resort which balanced the so-so treatment. I would look elsewhere for spa next time. We loved our visit to this beautiful resort and could not have asked for better service or accommodations. Spice Island sets high standards for itself and exceeded our expectations! We definitely recommend and would go back!
This was our first trip to Grenada and to The Spice Island Beach resort. We wanted some Easter sunshine and somewhere that wasn't too busy and it certainly lived up to expectations. On arrival we were greeted by a team of very friendly staff and a glass of champagne. We had a few moments to relax and then we were whisked away to our room. We were surprised and delighted to be informed that we had been upgraded to a beach front room. The room was splendid and the beach was literally outside our patio doors. Staff were super friendly, always remembering our names and the quality of the food was also very good. The pool was ideal for us as a family and pool service was excellent. My only constructive feedback would be the following: Service was often slow for breakfast and lunch. Breakfast did offer a buffet but if you wanted eggs etc then you needed to order separately. On some occasions we waited around 30 mins for eggs and children's pancakes and on another 50 mins for both breakfast and lunch. Our girls wanted to try out kids club and on three occasions we dropped them in for a 1-2 hours. The first time was fine, they did lots of arts and crafts and made t-shirts. However on the second and third visit they just played the wii. I'm not the biggest lover of kids clubs as we like to hang out together whilst on holiday but on occasion it can make a nice change for them and gets them out of the sun during the hottest part of the day. However, if all they are going to do is play wii then it's a definite no-no for me. By contrast, when we stayed at the Four Seasons in Nevis they ran a fantastic kids club which had lots of structured activities such as nature walks, banana boat rides, learning about the local, making smores etc. My final request would be to have pool towels available earlier than 9am (which is the official opening time of the pool). Although we could use the pool before 9, we could not get any towels and it shouldn't be too much of a hindrance to leave a stack of towels in the towel storage units first thing in the morning. Overall, we loved our stay at Spice Island Beach Resort. The setting is spectacular on an equally amazing beach, the staff were super friendly and nothing was too much trouble, the rooms were well appointed and we would definitely recommend it. For us, this was an authentic Caribbean stay and we felt like we experienced Grenada. It makes a nice change from the larger more formulaic hotels.
Completely agree with all other reviews. Spectacular resort. Half-full when we visited with mainly more mature couples and then a few families with younger children. A few specific thoughts below which hopefully help those deciding: - Hotel more casual than marketing suggested and extremely family friendly but in a very understated way - no water slides or playgrounds but all sorts of little touches like children's bath robes. Balance perfect for us. - Beautiful pool ranged from 4-6ft deep, gorgeous temperature and water tasted slightly salty. - Beach stunning and very child-friendly with gentle slope and often v calm. Beach is public but in the very best way with locals and visitors sharing in a very relaxed manner, never crowded and barely a vendor to be seen. - Seagrape Beach Suite was perfect and very well appointed and proportioned - two queen beds plus sofa bed which meant our two boys each had their own bed - huge bonus! - Nutmeg Pod children's club open daily from 9-5 (except one hour at lunch) for children over 3. Sandra and Kimberley were super and as great helping with creative arts and crafts activities as they were joining in the games on the Wii. - All-inclusive package - we didn't find a drink or meal that wasn't included (only a $10usd charge for room service). - Service superb throughout with majority of staff greeting everyone by name. This friendly attitude carried through to the guests too with probably the most casually-friendly hotel guest group we have ever encountered. Drinks reception each week with the hotel owners seemed a highlight for many. All-in-all highly recommended!
When can we go back?! We took our 6 year old daughter for 10 days over the Easter break and we had an amazing time. Absolutely loved it and found the whole experience better than anticipated. The Sea Grape Suites are lovely, and waking up to open your door to the gently lapping ocean is quite a treat. We were very pleased with the food, especially the variety and the constant array of local cuisine rather than only the standard European fare. I don't really understand the complaints about the food quality. I mean it's not Heston at the Fat Duck - but it's very good and there are plenty of options. We also found the included wine and drinks to be much better quality than you would normally expect from an all inclusive property. But Spice Island is definitely not your typical all-inclusive in any way. We felt like we part of a luxury boutique family environment the whole time. Everyone knows your name and goes out of their way to offer amazing service at every turn. One note about kids/families. As this is a resort that mostly attracts couples, you are probably not guaranteed a contingent of children to play with for your littles. We were lucky (and of course it was Easter break) and had four families with kids of the same age who formed an ever rotating tribe of fun on the beach, pool, and the Nutmeg Pod kids club. We also had the pleasure of attending the cocktail party at Sir and Lady Roystons home on True Blue Bay. It was lovely. Such an amazing spot, and very interesting to chat to the family about the island and tourism industry. I have taken a hiatus from reviewing on TripAdvisor, but I had to come back to leave my positive review for Spice Island. It was unique, chilled out, gorgeous, delicious, high-service yet super relaxed. In short, I cannot wait for a return visit to this lovely island and fabulous property. Thanks for a great time Spice Island!
Our 6th time at this very special place and we just loved it even more this time around. From the moment we arrived it is like coming home, everyone is so attentive and welcoming and it is in such a beautiful setting on Grande Anne Beach. This year we found the service here exceptional in all aspects of the resort. Reception staff always greet you with a wave whenever you walk by, restaurant staff are so friendly and nothing is ever too much trouble. We found the pool and beach service this year second to none, greatly improved on previous years. Always a drink on offer or a cold flannel or a little fruit snack - nice touches. The beach here is fantastic and we usually walk the 2 mile stretch at least two if not three times a day, makes you feel less guilty as the food here cannot be ignored. Breakfast is a delight, the lunch menu always contains specials so varies each day and dinner can be a five course affair if hungry enough. We look forward to visiting again very soon ......
