Great Beach location- 3 star hotel at best
The beach is beautiful and this hotel is on a prime part of the beach. The grounds are well kept but the rooms are old even though they say they are recent renovated. The food at the hotel is not great, overpriced. Breakfast buffet for 2 was over $80 CAD, and not worth it by any means. I recommend you try other restaurants/hotels for food. Calabash, mount cinnamon or spice island all have nice restaurants. Also Umbrella’s (restaurant) on the beach was great and very affordable. The staff at this hotel (particularly the serves and front desk staff) are miserable and not really open to offering any assistance or recommendations. Very different from the rest of the folks on the island who were fantastic. Grenada is a beautiful place, I recommend it, but if you are expecting this to be like a North American radisson it’s not quite on point. Overall this is a 3 star hotel. Clean but old. Nice location, poor food and amenities.
Very disappointed. I am a loyal customer and expected better of such a well placed hotel. The gym was hot. The restaurant service slow. The menu is very limited. The check in was inefficient. The rooms dated.
Another Exceptional Stay at the Radisson Grenada
Once again the Radisson did not disappoint. The location on Grand Anse beach is Devine, it doesn't get any better people. The property itself is modern, clean and high class. The food at the several restaurants on site is fresh, tasty and served with a smile. The pool areas are beautiful and this property does not leave you wanting for anything. It is hard to leave once you check in. I look forward to my third trip to the Radisson Grenada later this year! I can hardly wait.
Nice location, lots of positives but needs some work
We are currently staying at the Radisson, which I would rate as a 2.5 star not more (but with 4 star prices). Having been here a week with another week to go, we thought it would be useful to reflect on the experience. Lots of positives to start with. The location is right on a beautiful beach with good access to the sea and soft white sand. Well kept grounds and pool. Attractive reception area. Friendly staff. Our housekeeper, Risha, cleans our room very well and is always happy and friendly. No complaints about the timing either, it’s always cleaned before 13.00. We were given a beach front room instead of a garden room which is delightful. It has very comfortable beds and pillows. All amenities are available including TV, AC, fan, coffee maker, kettle and a plentiful daily supply of tea, coffee and water. We don’t like the cream supplied, so bought milk in the supermarket to go in the fridge. Bring some English teabags if it’s important because the selection wasn’t great. There are plenty of sun beds both at the pools and on the beach and we never had a problem finding a bed at any time of day. The location is great for catching the local buses just outside the hotel, to take you anywhere on the island, they shout and toot at you when passing to see if you want to hop on board and they will stop any time you want them to, just bang on the roof! There’s also a supermarket across the road to buy some supplies and a choice of restaurants and bars, both on the beach and near the supermarket. Cayenne which is next to the supermarket, further up the road does breakfasts as an option to the hotel. The other beach restaurants don’t open until 11.00 or later. It’s very easy to get from the airport by taxi or bus but we arrived late and the buses don’t run on Sundays. Our taxi was 40 ec dollars about £12 plus a tip so very reasonable, it only takes about 10 to 15 mins. Our reception at the hotel was pleasant and the porter gave us some good tips, not least that the West Indies and Ireland cricket teams were staying in the hotel. The Irish players secured some complimentary tickets for us at the 20twenty game and they won! So far had great meals at Umbrellas, 61West and just about to sample the Coconut Beach Sunday beach bbq. There is a little kiosk next to the hotel beach bar which sells beers $2ec less than the hotel, most places sell beers for 5 to 7 ec but there are rip off places, like Cinnamon on Grand Anse that charges 9 and the Calabash hotel on L’Anse aux Epines beach which charges 13ec. If money is limited it’s best to ask before you buy. In the supermarket they cost $3.30ec, about a pound. Our room is spacious with a balcony overlooking the sea. There is room for improvement in the hotel. There is quite a lot of construction work in the car park area and some building work to the South of the property. This hasn’t affected us but if you were staying in some of the garden rooms, it may do. The room we are staying in needs completely refurbishing. Everything is dated and the shower pressure is quite low but adequate. The furniture is a strange mix of heavy old wood and the bathroom is just okay with some strange marks on the mirror framework and slightly mouldy silicon around the bath, and again quite dated. On arrival at the hotel we signed a CC holding slip but realised we were being charged £700 more than the amount we booked through Booking.com. We questioned this the next day and it was corrected (without apology). We have eaten one night in the hotel (Bamboo bar), and the food was appalling. The Bolognese tasted of sugar as if it was made with ketchup and was presented as a big glob of mixed spaghetti and Bolognese. No garlic bread, no Parmesan. My partner had Barracuda that was just passable. We did look at the pasta special night but the food looked poor and the chef spent more time standing at the bar and posing, than dealing with the food. The catering is sadly lacking and is expensive for what it is. I am a foodie and will pay for Michelin standard food but I don’t like being ripped off with poor quality at high prices. My advice is don’t book half board, go out and eat in the nice restaurants. We had breakfast one day this week which is actually a very nice buffet. However, the price is ridiculous. We paid £50 for the two of us. Normally £15 each is about the going rate for hotel breakfasts. Hence we are not eating breakfast in the hotel, it feels like they are being greedy and as a result, we are spending less in the hotel than we normally would. The pool chairs are laid out permanently but the beach chairs are stacked. They are heavy and are not laid out for you on a morning. Only one day this week did we find anybody helping to carry them and that was mainly for the cruisers who come for the day and tip big. I think this could be improved on. There is no waiter beach drinks service, you have to walk down to the beach bar or go into the hotel. It’s disappointing to see so much one use plastic being used. Daily, one use bottles of water etc. There is a water dispenser at reception but this could be extended around the resort to encourage people to refill there own water bottles. Even the water dispenser at reception has one use plastic cups. It’s great having an ice machine to help yourself. For the smokers (someone posed the question), there are plenty of spaces in the garden, next to the beach with large ashtrays provided and of course you can smoke on the beach and in other bars along the beach. The overall feeling is that the hotel is a bit sprawling and feels a bit dead at times despite being fully booked (supposedly). The good thing is that there are few children around at the moment, maybe the resort will be much more busy during school holidays. We are having a great holiday but the hotel food and accommodation are definitely not up to par. A complete refurbish and a new executive chef would definitely boost this place. Would we come back to the Radisson? No
Great Beach - Bad Food and Drinks
I stay here bc the price is decent for the area. If the hot tub was properly working and not cold and they served adequate food it would be better. If you are hungry , walk 10 minutes to 61 West or Silversands. Hotel needs update on inside of rooms.
