TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
Let me start by saying we are frequent travelers to the Caribbean and have stayed everywhere from the hermitage in antigua ( which I didn't love) to the palms negril (which I love) which cost an... Read more eightth of the price of hermitage. We truly enjoyed coyaba.. Stayed in room 129 which is a ground floor unrenovated room. We can't find fault with the room..even though we asked for a king bed and they couldn't accomodate us, we simply shoved the doubles together and slept like babies. The rooms and resort are quiet... Very very quiet. Love that! The bar menu is limited but don't be afraid to ask..the bartenders will make anything... Special thanks to Karen and Karan. Food is predictable... Not a lot of variety from day to day.. But there's almost always something you'll be fine with eating..again, the kitchen went out of their way... They found me peanut butter for my toast and were happy to make an off the menu blt. By the way, the bacon is spectacular! Also deserving special mention is the lamb... They are ideally located on the beach and across from an American style grocery store. They were generous with towels, chairs were plentiful and housekeeping was great. We will be back! Read less
We very much enjoyed our stay at Coyaba! We arrived late since our flight had been cancelled, check in was quick so we could get some dinner before the restaurant closed. Our bags were brought to our... Read more rooms. The room was very nice, loved being on the ground floor so we could walk out to a terrace. The food was great, we never once ordered al a carte since the menus were always good choices. Even Valentine's Day dinner was great. The beach is the best part of the resort though, probably the best beach we have been to yet! Not too crowded, always a good place for our chairs, plenty of shade if needed. It made for a very nice daily walk as it is almost 3 miles long. There are some vendors but they are very polite and not pushy. You must speak to Alvin! It was easy to catch public transportation to Georgetown just down the street. There is a mall just across the street for shopping with bank machines if needed. Loved having wifi available pretty much all over the resort. Highly recommend Coyaba and if we ever go back to Grenada we will stay there. Read less
We recently spent 2 weeks here, having previously been to La Source (also 4 star) before it was taken over by Sandals, and the comparison is not particularly favourable. Coyaba is well situated on... Read more Grand Anse beach and the grounds are good & well maintained. There are shops and supermarket nearby. The room was plain but ok and cleaned daily. We had asked for a double when we booked, but were told there was only a twin, and a late checkout was refused even though the place was not full. The bathroom was very small with a peculiar part sunken bath, and was tired - in need of imporvement. I defy anyone to get warm water rather than hot or cold out of the shower & bath mixer tap. The aircon and ceiling fan worked ok and were quiet. We had some late evening noise from a nearby restaurant and beach parties, and didn't enjoy the 5.15 'wake up' every morning as a trolley was noisily pushed along concrete paths outside the accommodation. The food was ok, but choices were limited and it was unadventurous. Staff were generally polite but were not particularly well organised so food and drink service could be slow, some were friendly and helpful, others aloof and disinterested. The all inclusive package requires you to wear a hospital type wrist band all the time, and coffee, other than instant of an indistinct variety, was charged extra, except it wasn't as the cappucino machine wasn't working thoughout our stay! The watersports was attached to a dive school. The 2 hobiecats were in good condition, and canoes etc looked ok. However, when the diveboat was out (much of the day) there was no safety cover, often only 1 hobie was rigged and you were left to launch and beach it without help which could be tricky in the surf without help. Grenada is a lovely island with friendly locals, and whilst we enjoyed our holiday we don't think Coyaba should be 4 star rated. There are better places that are no more expensive, so we won't be going back there . Read less
We have just spent 2 excellent weeks at Coyaba. It exceeded our expectations. The staff were lovely, all of them, the gardens are gorgeous, the rooms, at least ours was excellent, and the beach is... Read more certainly one of the best I have ever visited. Great 2 km walk several times a day with lots of safe easy swimming. I think is is silly to compare this to Le Sport, they are entirely different in market, type and price. The food here is of a good standard, consistently. We never had a poor meal. It is not fine dining nor does it pretend to be. Special mention for Josephine who runs the restaurant with great skill And to Mr James in the bar who, in his own words, "scoured the island" for a bottle of my favourite malt when he ran out!! Great service style and humour Read less
The experience for us was the most memorable and wonderful time of our lives! We chose Grenada as our Destination and COYABA as our resort after many months of studying other peoples Caribbean... Read more holidays and remarks. On arrival, you are greeted with an awesome cold drink and cool towel then quickly moved to your room to settle in. Our flight on Air Canada was very much delayed and we had been worried about not getting to the resort in time to eat something for dinner. Coyaba, without any fuss, held the restaurant open for us and allowed us a relaxing incredible dinner with all the trimmings. We had requested a premium Ocean View Room on the upper level and received exactly that. The Room was beautiful. It may not have been one of the "refurbished" rooms but, it was perfect for us and everything was clean and in great condition and working order. ( room 220 ) We arrived at the resort after dark so it was not until morning when we pulled back the curtains, that we realized what a perfectly gorgeous lush, garden setting that we were in the midst of!! The sun rose over the mountains behind the resort and made our first views of Grenada and the resort most memorable. It is just simply breath taking! Every staff member that we encountered at COYABA were incredibly helpful, friendly and humble. No one ever held out a hand looking for something extra however, their friendly efficient manner of conducting their business just naturally made you want to hand them something. This is so different from any other island holiday that we have taken. One of the staff at COYABA explained it like this, " Other Countries promote themselves as tourist destinations...but Grenada simply promotes Grenada". It is true. There is a great variety of local food choices offered as well as many western style dishes. The menu choices change daily so that you get a chance to try just about everything during your stay. Quality and taste are excellent and consistent. Restaurant staff are attentive, friendly and knowledgable. During meals where a buffet is in place, you can still order other items, and the staff will even bring additional items for you from the buffet so that you do not have to get up. The Bar staff are also very friendly and efficient. Their default is that your glass is full.... enough said! Special thanks are due however to Nigel and "Trouble" at the Pool bar who are just incredible human beings! The Grand Anse Beach is absolutely beautiful, clean and suitable for bathing and enjoying. My wife had never gone into the ocean on any of our previous Caribbean vacations but it was all that I could do here to drag her out and back onto one of the many beach chairs at the resort. There are so many chairs, tables, sun and shaded areas on the grounds that you never have to fight for a spot to relax. You do see some of the folks doing so but here, it isn't at all necessary and watching others do it is kind of funny! The Beach bar is totally adequate and well stocked for the beach area. If they don't offer your choice, they will go and get it for you. The pool is not massive but the whole pool area is perfect size with lots of chairs, tables and umbrellas. The swim up bar is well attended and stocked, and is a popular hang out. My wife and I celebrated our 40th Wedding anniversary on Valentines Day. We were blown away when we returned to our room to change for dinner and found a beautiful flower arrangement and an ice bucket full of a bottle of champagne and flutes. Courtesy of the Hotel Management. It was amazing. I could go on and on about our experience here but it was truly awesome. I would recommend COYABA to everyone and we are definitely going to go back as soon as possible. I will likely try to find an alternative way to get there though than with Air Canada Vacations....The Airline is terrible except for their local Reps who were amazing... what can you do... Read less
