Relaxing Time Away...
A lovely vacation at Sandals Grenada thanks to the attentiveness of the General Manager Peter Fraser. Contacted him in advance due to some medical issues my husband and I had and he was on it and very accommodating. Passed on the message to other staff and we’ve never been treated as well as on this vacation. We are beach people and loved walking from one end to the other many times a day. Brought my own snorkel equipment and had a great time snorkeling along the break wall seeing incredible sea life. Snorkel excursions were great. Boota, Denny a big shout out. All restaurants are wonderful. Were they perfect? No, but everyone tries very hard to please. Nightly entertainment was hit and miss. Room for improvement. Rudell was my fave bartender knowing exactly what I wanted. Yoga was great but should be more often. Don’t like the two tier service levels, butler vs no butler. We aren’t butler people by choice not by price. All loungers and umbrellas are taken by the butlers by 6am. A lounger and umbrella should be the norm, not an upgrade! Skin cancer is on the rise and as a responsible company; Sandals should ensure everyone has access to an umbrella without having to rise at 6am on vacation. The fogging freaked us out and would have liked to know when it was starting. Although considered safe let people know just before so we can move away. Grateful we were there before COVID-19. Thinking of all the staff as we all try to fight this war. Lovely people, great resort.
Great Time In Grenada!
My husband and I had a great trip to Sandals Grenada! We booked through Mike with Dream Makers Vacation Services like we always do:). The resort was only 5 minutes away from the airpot which was very nice. Staff was waiting for us with cold glasses of champagne. Once we were all checked in, our room wasnt ready yet, we went to get some pizza by the pool. Sat at the bar and ate our pizza and had a cold cocktail. We were escorted to our room once it was ready. Beautiful clean room with a wonderful view of the beach. We booked last minute so we took the cheapest room and were not disappointed!! Each day we started at either the beach or by the quiet pool which had a great view of the beach. Candice cocktail server/ bartender always made sure we had cold drinks by the pool and at the beach and was always very friendly. Our favorite bartender in the living room was Erica! She always had great recomndations and was always kind! We finished our days in the back of the resort at the pool bar and party pool. It was a little louder than the pool in the front. This pool is were all the activites were held. Enjoyed the big hot tub overlooking the pool each afternoon. My Husband enjoyed diving 3 days while we weere there. He got to dive one of the shipwrecks. We did snorkel 3 days too. Went to 3 different sites. We saw huge sting rays, a turtle, and an octopus. Our dive guide, sorry forgot his name:( brought up the octopus for us to see and it inked him. One day we booked a private tour through the resort. Our Drivers name was Davidson and he was great. We requested that he come an hour earlier than usual so we could beat the cruise ship guests up to the waterfall in the rain forest. Davidson was right on time. He was very knowledgable about the town, Island, Spices and the trees. He was our guide on our hike to St. Margrets waterfall. We did arrive to the waterfall before anyother guests. It was nice to have it all to ourselves. We enjoyed the beautiful waterfall and the hike. As soon as we turned around to hike back, there were other guest on their way up. Definetly worth going early!! He drove us back to town and showed us some sights and told us some history of the island. He dropped us off to do a little shopping and was there waiting for us when we were done. This is a very safe island and town:) We enjoyed the food and resturants. Our favorite was the Steak house. We went there twice for steak and lobster!! The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definetly return to Sandals Grenada for a future trip!!
Grenada - Beautiful Resort but Not smoke free
Loved the relaxation and resort. Only one major downfall that annoyed us several times a day. They claim at check in to be a 'smoke free' 'environmentally friendly' resort. Yet every time we walked to our room or any restaurant we had to pass the 'smoking area'. These areas were not on the edges of the small resort but between sidewalks and main walkways. Absolutely ruined the trip for us. It was disgusting.
Fantastic stay in strange circumstances
This was our first time in Grenada and first time in a Sandals Resort, and we would do both again. Everything from start to finish was exceptional. We travelled before the coronavirus really hit the UK but on arrival at the hotel, you could see that they took hygiene very seriously. The welcome was warm and friendly and we were met with a glass of bubbly before being taken to our room by Jeremy, the Customer Manager, who was very friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. Here is a summary of our experience in the hotel: Accommodation: We had a beach front room on the Pink Gin beach, which was very practical, well stocked mini bar and bathroom. The room was very clean, had turn down service, and housekeeping couldn't do enough to help if we needed it. Hotel: Well laid out and of course was not too busy due to the restrictions on travel. There were plenty of sunbeds and room to move around and plenty to do on the resort. The sea could be a little rough but nothing to stop swimming or snorkelling. Staff: What can I say - from the day we arrived to the day we left we were extremely well looked after. Nothing was too much trouble, constant supply of drinks around the pool & beach and the staff were so friendly! We remarked on how every single member of staff genuinely looked and acted as though they loved their job. They always had a smile on their face, and were happy. Food: There was 10 restaurants on site and we visited them all with the exception of the Sushi one. We never had a bad meal, food was exceptional in every restaurant, breakfast was to die for and you could practically eat all day if wanted. All in all it was a fantastic hotel with fantastic staff and we would definitely return. We were the last to leave the resort, on the last commercial flight off the island, and for 2 days there were 6 of us left on the resort. The service didn't change, we were still very well looked after, in fact, it was even better! The hotel manager kept us informed when there was doubt over whether our flight would be running or not. When they found out there was a limited food service on the flight, we were provided with a beautiful package of sandwiches, salads, cakes and fruit from the hotel to ensure we would have something on the plane. Would definitely recommend, and we will be returning!
Last week of operations
My wife and I arrived on Friday March 13th, leaving Monday March 23rd on what has proven to be the last Virgin Atlantic flight back to the UK. Our room was a South Seas Waterfall River Pool Junior Suite with Balcony Tranquility Soaking Tub - WFJS. This was perfectly acceptable though we did find the water pressure / temperature control in the shower to be a random experience - on a couple of evenings the water flow stopped completely. However, maintenance were on site very quickly after a call to reception. We spent most of our time by the South Seas pool which was great fun. We didn't have too much difficulty getting sunbeams each day - though this was helped by the fact that hotel occupancy was only around 50% dropping to below 10% for the final days. If it had been any busier we would clearly have had a different experience - according to other guests we spoke with, this issue seems to be something Sandals are quite happy with. We found all the restaurants to be of a very high quality. The staff were also exceptional - especially bearing in mind the obvious uncertainty that they faced. All in all we are lucky that we had such a nice week - something to remember now we are in a lockdown.
