TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
Have recently returned from Coyaba so here is report! I have an arthritic knee and use a stick so my view will take this into account. Flight with Virgin good as usual, although I feel the food is... Read more losing its appeal. The airport at Grenada is small and you disembark down steps, it is only a short amble to the building and an attractive interior. A staff member saw my stick and directed me immediately to a special lane. As a result the transit was very quick. Virgin reps waiting and after a short delay I was loaded in a minivan with another couple. Pleasant drive of about 10 mins and no undue ‘death wish’ drivers around. The resort is small, set in a ‘V’ shape with the reception at the apex. No gleaming glass or chrome here, the resort is long-standing so dark wood is prevalent. A large library of books to borrow reside here as well as the small shop. The main facilities between the two divisions of the V are accessible from steps or slopes so good even for wheelchairs. Pool small with the smaller restaurant to the side overlooking. This was the ‘informal dress’ restaurant which we used as my husband was without his trousers. The other bigger eatery overlooks the gardens and beach, this was breakfast and some lunches. Breakfast has good omelette station and American ‘pine flooring’ bacon. A lot has been said about the food but I found it to be very good indeed. Well-presented and tasty. The pool restaurant has table service for both drinks and food. I thought this was great – no carrying plates, wrestling with containers and jostling with other diners. The problem is the limited choice. There is an unchanging menu with options such as ‘surf and turf’ at a supplement. Also a ‘menu of the day’ with around 4 items. e.g. Chicken, beef, fish and veggie. Did get a little pushed for choice at the end although I could have cheerfully had surf and turf every day! Cocktails very good, usual high alcohol with a passing interest in flavouring! This hotel is not for the party crowd. Age of other guests was generally middle years. Entertainment is almost non-existent and music is low volume. I did miss air conditioning as it’s only in the rooms (very quiet). The gardens are beautiful to look at and walk in and very well-tended. Not bothered by locals on the beach. The sea does have a deep slope down into it which is difficult to navigate if you are unsteady. Enjoyed the week and hope to visit Grenada again. Read less
Smallish hotel with 80 rooms, excellent location on Grand Anse beach, has a decent shopping complex opposite and a short taxi ride to main town. Rooms are in blocks of 10 and where clean and... Read more comfortable. The hotel has 2 restaurants but you can order from either of the menu's at both get burgers etc from the poolside one during the day. Pool was fairly small but being right next to the carribbean sea didn't spend any time at the pool. Food and service was very good as where all the staff. Grenada itself is very good, friendly people everywhere we went and a lovely island to visit. Will say we went late July which is the rainy season, but only had a few heavy showers over the fortnight, and the mozzies were out in force and are quite vicious Read less
What excellent ambience and hospitable employees. A home away form home.. That san coche with fish, shrimps and provision just what a Caribbean girl needs to start the day. The hospitality manager... Read more goes out of his way for each guest. If you don't like your allocated room he is sure to find you one that suits you. From the hotel run down to the beach for a swim and you can have your fruits brought to you at mid morning. In the pool you can go to the bar and have your cocktail drink. Every one is so happy to serve and they can match international standards. Read less
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
