The hotel

Perfectly positioned on Grand Anse, Grenada's most beautiful beach. This luxurious All-Inclusive resort, owned and run by the gracious Hopkin family, offers superb, spacious accommodation, a welcoming atmosphere, top-class cuisine, spa facilities and excellent service. The white, gently sloping sands of Grand Anse Beach are perfect for romantic walks, water sports, or simply soaking up the sun; or perhaps you'd like to indulge in a treatment at the hotel's own spa or explore the local area with complimentary bike hire. Families are welcome year-round with the option of interconnecting rooms, complimentary year-round kids club and dedicated children’s menus. It's no wonder this hotel is a firm favourite with our customers who consistently give it a very high score for guest satisfaction.

In our 53 years of marriage, we have stayed in many truly beautiful places all over the world. The spice Island resort has to be in the top five everything was perfect from the location, the staff, the property to our accommodation — filled with high end luxury touches. Of the service it can be said this is one of those places where the staff doesn’t have to work here; they want to work here truly not one negative thing to say after a week’s stay, only that we were very sad to leave and are already planning our return Make a reservation here, you will love it. Book a sea grape accommodation, it was perfect Trust me — I have never lied to you before. Read less

A very friendly hotel in exceelent condition. The real strength is the various "beach suite" rooms which open directly onto the lovely soft sandy beach dotted with trees giving shade - view from these rooms is exactly as in the photos on the website. Lovely beach to swim from and plenty of natural shade for the sun loungers on the beach. Decent restaurant and bar. We had a sea grape suite which was roomy and well furnished. I would be cautious about the various "pool suite" rooms - it looks to me as if they have no view at all and are behind individual high walls. Read less

My wife and I decided to go to Grenada after very little research. We didn't know anyone and after seeing a lot of other islands, we wanted to try something new. Overall, this hotel exceeded all of our expectations and deserves a high rating. While there were some minor problems with our room key, they were always willing to assist and gave us a bottle of champagne complimentary due to the issue (as it happened more than once). The true highlight of this hotel is its customer service/workers. My special shout outs would go to Rene, Davidson (I apologize if this is not the correct spelling of his name!), and Katrina. As well, the front desk crew (I don't have specific names) also were excellent. To say that they're some of the best workers we have experienced in our travels would truly be an understatement. If there was any con in this trip it would be the menu for the restaurant. While we were always able to find a food option for dinner, it was still limited. When I spend as much as I did to come to this resort, I simply wish there was more options or another restaurant that had a different menu. Overall, I would recommend this resort if you're coming to this island. It truly deserves the 5 stars that it is rated and continues to get through ratings. Read less

The hotel is very well maintained with ample staff including a team of friendly gardeners who manicure the resort every day. Top quality equipment at the hotel. The beach is immediately accessible with great swimming and a walk along the length of Grand Anse to work off those inevitable calories! Best place to stay on Grand Anse. Read less

The resort and its fabulous location along the Grand Anse beach in Grenada warrant the resorts 5-star rating. However, there are aspects warranting consideration that prevent me giving a full blown 5-star review. Firstly, to the positives: The resort has seen extensive renovation. The majority of room/suites open up directly onto the beautiful white sands of the Grand Anse beach and the pristine waters of the Caribbean. We were booked into one of the Ocean front Seagrape Suites. These are generously sized with a terrasse equipped with sun loungers and a hammock (for those of you brave enough to try it out). A nice and helpful accessory was the outside flexible shower to was off any sand before re-entering your room from the beach. The beach itself, though open to the public, is spotlessly clean. There are additional sunbeds provided. Fresh beach towels are delivered to your rooms daily with additional towels available from the pool area - should these be needed. The staff are indeed a credit to the resort, and this aspect warrants recognition. We were always greeted by name (I only wish that my memory was that good). The resort has two restaurants - though only one is functional during the day. The Oliver for breakfast and evening a la carte dining, and the Sea & Surf Terrace for lunch time meals. Both prove an extensive menu choice to suite most tastes. Good quality house wine is available with meals and the bar has cold beer on tap. The grounds are immaculately maintained by the groundsmen and gardeners. We had several questions regarding various plants and the gardeners were more than happy to indulge our questions. The cleanliness of the rooms is first rate with bathroom towels changed daily (if not twice daily if used by turn down time). The quality of entertainment was very good and a great reflection of the Caribbean vibe. Some members of staff warrant our recognition and thanks for making our stay that extra special. We were always welcomed with a smile and occasional light banter and laughter by Katrina and Mikel at the restaurants. The menus were explained together with any specials of the day. Lyndonna ensured that our drinks were regularly refreshed and quickly compensated for any excessive "evaporation". On the beach Jamal kept us (and others) constantly supplied with cold towels and drinks. He must cover a good several miles a day - no joke in high heat. Thank you to you all for making our stay that extra bit special. You are remembered fondly. The front desk staff were also first rate (sorry for not remembering your names. We were always greeted by name and great help provided regarding access to St George and other local attractions. Our thanks also for accommodating our late check-out request. Now turning to some aspects that warrant consideration and improvement: 1. The Spa is pretty basic. OK a range of treatments are offered, but the Spa has no separate pool nor therapeutic water treatments such as showers or whirlpool/jacuzzi. I did not fine a steam room nor sauna either. Something of a missing for a 5-star resort methinks? The cost of the Spa treatments is also high by European Standards. This may explain the apparent relatively low usage - I had no problem booking my treatment and the bookings log look rather spars. 2. There is a lack of restaurant choice throughout the day. Yes, there are two restaurants with a good (no - GREAT) menu selection but only one is functional during the day. Perhaps operating a beachside grill or adding an additional "themed" restaurant at the Eastern end of the resort should be given consideration? 3. Food was occasionally served cold. There is a single kitchen servicing The Oliver and Sea & Surf dining areas. I suspect that this was down to to the kitchen being overstressed with orders. The delivery of cold food was definitely NOT down to the serving staff. Again, perhaps consideration should be given to expanding kitchen facilities? By way of moderation, the dishes provided were fabulous - thankyou chef Brenda. 4. The lunchtime menu at Sea & Surf is fixed for the week. Whilst the selection of meal options is good, perhaps consideration should be given to changing this menu a few times over the course of the week to enable guests more choice? 5. The Oliver menu, whilst changing daily, repeats at the end of the week. This can become "samey" for guests staying for longer vacations. 6. More grill an BBQ opportunities please !!! I trust that Resort Management take the above observations and suggestions positively as these are aspects that let down your otherwise fabulous resort. They are not meant as outright criticisms. We would definitely consider returning and would not hesitate to recommend the Spice Island Resort to others. With our sincerest thanks to you all for a fabulous and memorable stay. Read less
