A gentleman named Desmond picked us up in his large and comfortable van promptly at 6:30 AM and for the next couple of hours guided us through a wide variety of habitats, from mangroves to mountains. Desmond is an excellent, enthusiastic, and knowledgable guide and really knows where to look for birds. He also knows his flora as well as fauna and pointed out all sorts of beautiful trees and flowers.This tour was not only a fantastic way to bird, but also to tour this gorgeous island, venturing to locales outside of the typical tourist destinations.

We have just returned from a wonderful ten days in The Coyaba Hotel. Some of the previous reviews said they didn't like the food, and it was repetitive . We couldn't believe this and wondered what people wanted? Loads of choice, very tasty food, choice of buffet, tabled'hote or a la carte. The most amazing value on AI. We went out one night to a recommended restaurant at Maca Bana. It was a lovely setting, but the food wasn't anything special and it cost a lot more than what we were paying at Coyaba. Breakfasts plenty of choice, great omelettes. Would like more fresh fruit. Rooms very nice, not fancy but very clean, great shower and bath. We had a room near the Umbrellas but the noise wasn't a problem, we liked the soca actually. I wouldn't bother with upgrades, all rooms are good, and you don't spend any time there. Nice turndown with chocolates. Entertainment is fantastic, can't understand complaints here. Marvellous steel band, soul band, brilliant singers. Nice Managers cocktail party with pan. The staff are beyond friendly and helpful. Anyone not thinking the staff are friendly must not know how to get on with folk. The beach bar was a great addition. People saying it wasn't always open! Well it's open from ten till twelve and three till five, the pool bar is always open, From 12 till three drinks are readily available in the restaurant and lounge bar. All served with a smile. Loads of great cocktails, they will make whatever you want.They all made our holiday the special time it was and created a lovely atmosphere. The beach is wonderful, minimum hassle. The locals use the beach which is great. The pool is small and has a swim up bar. This was lovely until some returnee guests decided to spend all afternoon in the pool bar area drinking and talking, leaving no room for swimming. There are water sports, kayaks and snorkels. Hobie cats but you have to be able to sail. Would have liked more variety in the boats to use. The gardens are immaculate and the staff are caring for them 24/7. The restaurants are lovely, the pool one is more intimate and casual dress, although no-one wore beach things or jeans anyway, I liked that everyone dresses for dinner. The main restaurant has the dress code but to me is more informal in style compared to the pool restaurant which I really loved. All the restaurant staff were fantastic, always bringing water, clearing the table and making sure everyone was happy. Don't hesitate to go to The Coyaba on All Inclusive. It's amazing value , we had the best time ever for my special birthday present. Read less

We have just returned from another lovely stay at the Coyaba,check in was quick and we were fortunate to have a ground floor room with a lovely view of the beach the room was large had a king size bed good aircon and coffee facilities a lovely patio with chairs also sun loungers there is a good size pool with a swim up bar which we did not use as the beach is so fantastic we just pulled out our sunloungers in the morning under the shade of the trees bliss. There is a small beach bar that serves soft drinks beers and some spirits mid morning and mid afternoon also william comes round with cold melon in the morning which is a nice touch. i sailed the hobbycat several times which is a part of the Aic and had a lovely massage .All the meals were good and we always found something we liked to eat i should mention the dress code for the down stairs restaurant long trousers and shirts with sleeves for men at dinner.. Some nights there was entertainment and we enjoyed the music we could dance to Donald the waiter makes great cocktails and really looked after us The staff were lovely and could not do more for us we hope to return again soon,.

No incessant thump thump thump at this resort....especially if you're lucky enough to get a room in Block 8. It's a quiet resort that caters to all races and nationalities and shows true Grenadian charm. From the reception to the meals to the spectacular beach, the order of the day is relaxation. The pool is small but the hospitality and swim-up bar make up for the size. Although shade is at a premium around the pool, we had no problem finding shade on the picture-perfect beach. Although the snorkeling off the beach is limited (a few species of fish, starfish, and a sole turtle) coral reefs and an underwater sculpture park are just a short sail away up the coast. If the 8 or 10 dishes on the daily feature menu at the two restaurants aren't to your liking, a few bucks extra ($25-50 ECD) gets you an 8oz filet mignon, rib eye steak, surf and turf, etc. The all-inclusive gets you all you want though, including pina coladas, etc. The Italian house wine is so-so. We stayed in a ground floor room in Block 8 - just a couple of doors from the beach and found it to be very quiet....although the water pressure at the sink was very low. The shower was better but I think they must use solar power to heat it. There were a couple of thunderstorms during our stay, the longest one was maybe 6 hours long and was then followed by brilliant sunshine. If you like spices, Grenada is the place to visit. Read less

We have just returned from a wonderful week in fabulous Grenada,and stayed at Coyaba. The location is perfect,the beach just outside our door(definitely worth paying the supplement for a room close to the beach) There are shops close by if you fancy a wander,and St Georges just 10 minutes away in the number 1 bus-you totally need to use the buses,an experience we will never forget and still smile about. The food at the hotel was generally very good,and for an All inclusive,not too repetitive.My only did appointment was with the staff really.They were never rude,but just not particularly friendly,which is very odd as out of the hotel the local people were the friendliest I’ve come across on my travels.An example is that if you want a sun lounger on the beach,you need to drag it yourself,I have no problem with this except one of the male staff stood on each occasion,watching me struggle,and didn’t move an inch.I was able to manage and it wasn’t a huge deal I suppose but we went to Mauritius last year and there is no way that a member of staff there would have stood by while a lady struggled.I appreciate it sounds like “first world problems” but it just gives a general idea of what the staff are like.They do what they have to do but certainly no more.We went out and about a lot in the week we stayed and the Grenadians were happy,delightfully friendly folk,just not the ones working at the Coyaba. The beach and location are excellent so if you are considering staying here then I would definitely say,give it a go,I personally don’t think I would go back however. Read less
