TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
Firstly, don’t be deterred by my three-star rating (I’d give it 3.5 if I could). Reviewing a hotel is based on context, including price, destination, type of holiday and expectations. To this... Read more end, as a four-star Caribbean beach destination, Coyaba has plenty of plus points but some negatives, certainly more than half a star lower than the 4.5-star resorts we stayed in before. So while Coyaba does not have the flair and the finesse of a top-tier hotel it still has plenty to offer as a solid mid-range resort at a mid-range budget. The hotel (alas, no punch or towel for us on arrival) is small so expect more of a quiet and intimate stay rather than discos and parties. The grounds are pretty, although mainly just lawn, flowers and some trees, so not as stunning as some places we have stayed. The hotel is located on probably the nicest spot of Grand Anse beach, especially when the sun comes out and the water shimmers crystal clear. The beach was actually markedly better than the ones we stayed on in Jamaica and St Lucia, although the hotel can’t take much credit for that. It was also quite nice to see the beach bustling with locals at the weekend; it gave the beach a great vibe and sense of fun to compare against the quieter weekdays. A quick tip is that it is a better option to pull your sun lounger onto the beach rather than on the sand behind the fence; the view is nicer but also the sand ants are plentiful and persistent, unlike the beach vendors who were not that much bother. Our room was reasonable and in an acceptable state; the cleaning staff also did a faultless job. On the downside, you are not provided with any bottled water whatsoever so make sure you pick some up; the hotel does offer refills but it’s a bit of a pain to keep traipsing down to get some (you have to do the same for alcoholic drinks in your room as the fridge is bare). WiFi was patchy to poor. I was not aware of that much difference either between the menus in the two restaurants but the food was pleasing without being sensational. There were fish options, usually a rota of tuna, marlin and swordfish, but little in the way of shellfish, although one heron we saw managed to find some crab. Most things seemed fresh but the food was perhaps a tad monotonous, with the same sort of dishes cropping up and vegetable medley (carrots, okra, green beans and cauliflower) each night. The dessert options were disappointing, which at least is good news for the waistline. There were some Grenadian dishes, like fish stew and oil down, but I would have preferred more local flavours. The food was cooked to “tourist strength” so pretty meek; you need to ask for some pepper sauce if you wanted anything spicy. The supposed dress code for dinner did not seem strictly enforced. Be aware it is not an “all-inclusive” resort per se. The menu was a bit confusing because all dishes had an EC$ price and there were supplements for certain a la carte items (the menu for which didn’t change for the entire week we were there). “All-inclusive” also does not stretch to premium spirits or non-filter coffee. Staff were, on the whole, okay. Some members were extremely nice, such as Roderick (one of the porters who could easily be part of the management with his warmth, politeness and friendliness), Nigel and Sheldon. Most were courteous, if slightly removed, while some were a bit surly or unprofessional, such as playing on their mobile phone and paying no attention to customers or disappearing for minutes on end leaving the bar unattended. Alas, at least two of the cocktails were not available for the whole week. The clientele seemed to be a mixture of British and Caribbean, predominantly families, although the hotel is not really geared towards children; no kids club but some water activities. Although I have no experience in the hospitality sector, I think Coyaba could work quite well as a couples-only resort because of its size and layout. Sandals appears to be the main adults-only resort on the island so a boutique alternative (which can charge higher rates as people are willing to pay a premium for adults-only) that is less expensive than Sandals would allow more resources for improvements to the service and amenities – just an idea from a punter. Other gripes include not having a bar near the beach; the “beach bar” is a hut offering a sparse selection of drinks so you have to sit on a lounger with a plastic cup of beer to get a decent view of the sunset. The insects are relentless (not the hotel’s fault, of course) but it was a bit off-putting to see so many flies around the pool bar drinks and, on occasions, bugs in the food areas with little effort to counter them. The hotel also puts nets up around the entire perimeter of the restaurant, which I’ve not experienced before. They are trying to prevent birds from pilfering food but it didn’t seem to work and actually made you feel a bit penned-in; our previous hotels in Jamaica and St Lucia coped fine with a quick shoo or a selection of leftovers out of sight to keep those birdies at bay. In conclusion, Coyaba is not a flush and fancy resort – and does not profess to be – but provides reasonable food, drink and services; a strong three stars which could nudge up to four stars with a few improvements. If you are looking for a nice, small hotel with a solid offering on mid-range budget, then I would recommend Coyaba. Read less
Good hotel with polite helpful staff. They even got us an additional single bed we needed for the room. Food was plentiful, rooms cleaned well daily and air conditioning a great plus. Hotel is in... Read more great position in middle of grande anse beach . Only negative is the number of beach sellers each day, but usually they would move on after a polite refusal. Did trip around Island with helpful taxi driver who talked about history of Grenada, especially the effects of the hurricane in 2004 which they are still recovering from. Would also recommend snorkel trip by boat to underwater statues. Would definitely return. Read less
My family and I stayed at Coyaba from 19/8 to 24/8/2014 in room 129. The staff was always helpful and pleasant namely Lystra for a warm welcome and Sandra from guest services. I met Peter one of... Read more the Gardeners who enlightened us on the island's many attractions, he along with the other gardeners does a great job in maintaining the beautiful landscape. Alfred, the security personnel was alway on hand and made us feel secure with his presence and a wealth of information about the island and the history of the hotel.The housekeeping was excellent, especially convenient was the beach towels brought to your room nightly. I had an amazing time diving with the guys from eco dive. The beach is located on the beachfront of Grand Anse beach, one of the best beaches on the island and less than ten minutes drive from the airport. The only thing we missed was a couple of hammocks. jessel Read less

Our fabulous yoga instructors (Flo, Soo & "vision in white") chose Grenada for our 4th annual yoga retreat. We had the pleasure of staying at the Coyaba Beach Resort on Grand Anse Beach. Hotel... Read more & room: It was possibly a 5 mins ride from the airport. The grounds are beautifully kept. My roomie & I stayed in room #203 across from the pool. The housekeeping staff was on point with fresh towels or whatever we wanted. We had no issues with the hot water or the air conditioner. They provide fresh beach towels around 8p for the early morning beach goers. The beach was fahhhbolous! No harassment from hawkers. Coyaba is a 10-15 mins ride to town/markets. There are computers in the lobby area for guests to communicate with family/friends back home. Food: I was especially pleased to have tasty fish options during meals. The chefs did a amazing job of offering local Grenadian food (breadfruit salad instead of potato salad & callaloo lasanya). The mgmt/staff were EXTREMELY flexible when our group unintentionally arrived toward the end of the meal (e.g. On the night of arrival, the group was able to get full dinner-after 9p). The staff is the icing on the cake. They were professional, patient, pleasant & basically is the reason why I would return to Coyaba & Grenada. I apologize in advance for not remembering everyone's name but I thank Ms. Josephine, Cardell, Hermosa, Roel, Donald, Anika, Lystra. A special thanks to Sheldon, Dyan, Paul Lewis & Evril. You did a great job! Keep up the good work! *** A suggestion to consider is better management of the flies in the restaurants at mealtimes. Sherry Read less
