This is a small privately owned family hotel. The landscaping is beautiful and interesting. Our first clue to the food was real brewed coffee. Breakfast and lunch was outstanding and included... Read more local dishes. The staff was always kind and eager to help. The beach is pristine Our carrier advised us of renovations during low season and offered us another property. We are happy we didn't switch as we were never aware of ongoing renovations. This is not your typical all inclusive. There is no loud music at the pool. The pool has a rooftop feel and reflects the peacefulness of the property. You can smell the ylang ylang tree from the pool when the winds blow. Here's hoping once completed renovations will improve room conveniences. Data plugs and outlets need to be conveniently located. We could have used more storage space with a bedside table for each side of the bed. Dinner felt like recycled lunch. The circulation of air needed a boost in both dining areas. Be sure to read the dress code as it feels a tad formal in this casual setting. During the rainy season it is crucial to plan for mosquitoes and sand fleas despite fogging. I was envious of hammocks at another resort close by. Read less
We stayed here for the week and got married on the Friday. It was perfect and the staff all helped to make it special. Even before we arrived Sandra Charles, the wedding co-ordinator, helped us get... Read more the correct documentation in order and explained everything to us. We put a lot of faith into Sandra and she did not let us down. Every little detail was planned and delivered to a very high standard. We sat down with the Head Chef and we planned our wedding meal together and enjoyed his expert input and advice. We then had a tasting session, where the Chef prepared a sample of what we would be eating and we were impressed by the high standard of food. The wedding meal was perfect for ourselves and our family who all commented on how good the food was. The wedding meal was enjoyed in the Kabana that all staff had spent time decorating to our own wedding theme and it looked perfect. The wedding cake was beautiful and we enjoyed it and all our guests enjoyed it. In our wedding package we had some extras that made it even more special, we had an intimate meal on the beach where the chef prepared food from a BBQ and delivered it to us fresh off the barbecue. We had our own waiter who did a fantastic job and we even had a little music playing which made the moment really special. Overall, we were sad to leave the Coyaba after all the hard work the staff had done to make our day from the gardeners who had prepared the wedding arch to the staff who waited on us for the wedding meal. We got the photographs back from the photographer the day after and he had done a fantastic job too. Overall, everyone did an amazing job and all made the day perfect. We couldnâ€™t fault anything. Thank you. Read less
My Husband and I have not long returned from spending 3 lovely weeks celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversary and my Husbands 66th Birthday at the Coyaba Beach Resort in Grenada. Although we have... Read more been to the Caribbean many times before this was our first visit to the Coyaba Beach Resort and to the lovely island of Grenada and we certainly made a good choice as we had such a wonderful time and met some wonderful people to share our celebrations with. Whilst we was staying at the Coyaba the main bar area and some rooms were going through some major refurbishments which Virgin informed us about prior to our flying out so we was a little apprehensive, but we neednâ€™t have been as this did not spoil our holiday and we do appreciate that when a resort is open all year round this type of work is always going to be completed during the low season. The room we stayed in was 215 which was on the first floor overlooking the beautiful gardens with the beach just a stoneâ€™s throw away. Although we were not in one of the newly refurbished rooms the room was adequate and very clean. The bathroom area was a little tired with a shower over a small bath but again it was all in working order and clean with fresh towels daily if needed so there was no problem. The bed linen was also changed daily if needed, I say if needed as the Coyaba like many hotels run a system where you can put a card on your bed which lets the room attendants know that you do not need your sheets changing although your bed will still be made and the same with the towels if you need them changing you simply leave them in the bath. This goes a little way to saving our planet by not wasting energy. There is also a turn down service where you are left a little chocolate treat to come home to each night. Clean beach towels are also left in your room each night in exchange for your used ones which you leave in the bath. Tip - There is a coffee making machine and fridge in your room although if you prefer your own brand of coffee/tea it is wise to take your own. The coffee machine can just boil water if you require it. Also if you prefer normal milk instead of powder milk ask for a jug at breakfast and just keep replenishing it when needed as they only leave powder milk in your room. The gardens at the Coyaba are absolutely wonderful and the gardeners are always busy working hard to keep them that way although they are never too busy to give a cheery greeting or give you any information on the wonderful plants or the amazing little lizards which are totally harmless. We found all the personnel working at the Coyaba to be very friendly although at first a few I would say were a little more reserved until they got to know you. There is a Managers Cocktail evening once a week and Andre the Managing Director is always eager to make sure that the guests are enjoying themselves and having a good time. There is plenty of choice of meals between the two restaurants whether you would prefer a lunchtime snack or a full four course dinner we were never left hungry. I will say though some of the food and soups can be very spicy, although very nice and well worth a try, bearing in mind that Grenada is called the island of Spice. If you are celebrating something special it is worth booking a romantic candlelit meal on the beach which we did on the evening of our 30th Anniversary and it was superb thanks to our delightful Chef Surjah for cooking us a lovely meal and Darlen who was our very attentive waiter for the evening. We also had a wonderful display of flowers and a bottle of Champagne delivered to our room with compliments from the Coyaba so we Thank You so much. A big Thank You also goes to the chefs who made my Husband a lovely birthday cake and for the accompanying choir as it was delivered to our table what a surprise to make his day even more special . The entertainment at the Coyaba was only 3 times a week and was not bad but not brill although I will say that the Coyaba New Dimensions was the best Steel band that I have ever heard. There was entertainment at the Umbrellaâ€™s bar next door which was quite good for a change and most nights played alternate nights to the Coyabaâ€™s entertainment. Noise from the bar next door was never a problem. There are plenty of trips to take from the Coyaba and we booked our Island Tour through a lovely helpful lady named Johanna of Sunsation. There are set trips or like us you could book a Private Tour where you have a personal driver on your own and you say where you would like to go. Our driver was named Ian and he was fabulous, very friendly and so full of information we had such a great time as we visited the Concord Waterfall, lunched at Petite Anse with a lovely view of the Grenadines, then Caribs Leap, Rivers Rum Distillery, The Belmont Estate then a nice leisurely drive through the rain forest back to the hotel all of which was well worth it. Thank you so much Ian for a great day out. Thank you to all at the Coyaba for making our holiday and Celebrations so memorable and we hope to return one day to see all the alterations completed. Tips Take lots of high Mosquito repellent and also wear it not only in the evening but through the daytime too as there is a daytime mosquito that is around which is causing a problem making people ill with Chikungunya which is similar to Dengue fever. This Mosquito is not just in Grenada it is all around the Caribbean which you can read about on the websites. A lot of visitors get their sunbeds pulled onto the beach away from the sandy garden area as there are a lot of ants nests in that area. Sand-flies are also a problem so put on as much protection as possible. Read less
Having waited ten weeks for this trip, we eagerly watched from the minivan our first glimpse of CBH. Utube had provided a tantalising taste of the resort. At reception a cold towel and a rum punch... Read more spiced with nutmeg. I had emailed weeks before for a sea view and was positively happy as we wound our way around meticulous grounds, suitable AI tagged. Enter room 126. Oh well, its small, but just a crash pad it was clean. Ancient Logie Baird TV Onto the patio, wonderful view of the whitewashed walls of the kitchens with their chimneys air con and water heater units. Had emailed for s sea view. Guess not! Enter the bathroom. UGH! Enough said. As we knew hotel was full, (ten units down for refurb) we accepted what we had. So lets hit the resort. First call the beach. Pure white sand, but slopes sharply to the sea, which makes its hard to walk parallel to the surf. By the security at the fence is a small white hut. Here they served limited drinks in plastic cups. More lovely gardens. On to the pool bar, the only bar as other closed for refurb. Soon found out not AI, need a silver band for that. So after being shouted out by three male staff. I spoke to Sheldon. Nasty man, could not be bothered, told me to sort it with Virgin. Nice guy in reception explained. Dinner in the bar area. Again some food was at a Meal supplement. $30/$40 extra. $65.5 for lobster. Sheldon again, seems like I am bugging him, walks off into his office. Again reception explains. Make the most of this appalling holiday, swallow say nothing more and eat out whenever possible. Food was god awful. A la carte definitely it is not. More like Off a Cart. Beef only medium or well done unable to do rare! How we laughed. Most meals were dabbed at then left. Lost 10lb in weight. Good KFC opposite for cooked hot chicken. Umbrellas bar next door great for food and entertainment. Building work was noticeable as they traipsed passed us all day long. End of last week vomiting and diarrhoea, all body joints aching, Mossy strike. Then ceiling collapsed in bathroom under weight of rain water. Stayed unlooked at even as we left. On last day staff appeared asking for â€œSouvenirsâ€ of our stay. Read $$$$ for souvenirs. Back home on the 22nd admitted to hospital suspected Dengue Fever. (Chickungunya) Two days on IV drips. Can personally recommend you avoid this resort, our worst trip ever in 40 years. Read less

Read more Bit late writing this review....however, we fell in love with Grenada and the COYABA was in a fantastic location to enjoy this fabulous island. Although we were disappointed with our room (like other visitors we found the room shabby and the bathroom in desperate need of an update) we did not allow this to spoil our otherwise wonderful experience in this friendly, well run hotel. The staff were outstanding and the food excellent. Many of the people we met were 'repeaters ' , some having been back 10 times! We will go back to this hotel, most definitely. However, we will book our room directly with the hotel to get exactly what we want. Get a hire car for a couple of days and explore this great island. Read less
