True Blue Bay Boutique Resort

Grenada, Caribbean

The hotel

There’s something special about staying in a family run hotel. It adds an air of authenticity, a warmer kind of welcome, and little extras which bigger hotels might just forget about. That’s what you get with True Blue Bay Boutique Resort. The owners know just what you need for a stay on this south coast bay, and they include family musts like a kids' club, local touches like cooking classes and rum tasting, free treats like Hobie cats, ocean kayaks and yoga classes. They even run a complimentary shuttle to Grand Anse Beach, BBC Beach in Morne Rouge and Aquarium Beach in Point Salines. Designing the hotel themselves, the Fielden family have added Caribbean touches throughout, as well as those things you’d only expect from a big-name hotel, including two pools, a spa, a PADI-certified dive centre and 24-hour room service.

We had been in Grenada for 10 days and needed to switch hotels our last night due to a convention at our other hotel. After doing some research I picked this resort as I liked the quaint look. I already knew going to it that I wasn’t going to be on Grand Anse beach anymore. When we arrived, we had to hike to our room, climb up more stairs to get into our room, then to get the view I paid for I had to climb more stairs. It was just exhausting. I asked if we could pay to upgrade to a room closer to the water or main area. But we could not change rooms. The room was great and had a full kitchen with a stocked minibar. We went to the beach and pool area and had some drinks and made the best of our last day of vacation. We found we really liked Nutmeg Coladas. We also found some shortcuts to get around the complex so it was all good. We ate all of our meals at the hotel restaurant and the food was fine and prices were reasonable. Again, the nutmeg coladas were so good I made sure the barmaid gave me the recipe and we enjoyed many of them during our quarantine and just wished we were hiking back up to that room for a view. In hindsight, we enjoyed our 2 days/1 night at the resort. Our maid was super friendly. Everyone at the reception area and restaurant/bars were nice. So we are glad we got to experience a different part of Grenada on our last night. Read less

We loved our hotel stay it was amazing! We stayed in the Coco Pods and loved the modern touch of it, it was very spacious and the bed was massive! We loved that it also came with a tiny kitchen. The staff were very friendly and accommodative. The entire resort was quite small and cute but we loved that it was a tight knit family owned, it gave it more of an authentic stay. Our stay included breakfast which was amazing, especially if you love Caribbean food. The only disadvantage were the birds in the morning that had to be shoo'd away but that's nature for you! There was entertainment every night available with dinner. There were two different types of pools, one mimics a beach and one a regular swimming pool. The closest store is about 10minute walk from the hotel otherwise there is a massive supermarket opposite the beach which you can catch the shuttle bus to. I would recommend renting a car to get around to explore the island but we were quite lucky as my boyfriend has family in Grenada who took us around the island. Read less

This was my 2nd trip to Grenada. I visited the island many years before, pre hurricane Ivan. We spent 8 glorious days at this hotel which I absolutely loved! The check in process was a bit slow but we did arrive early. We had to wait on the vehicke rental a while because we thought while we waited we could have gone for a short drive while the room was being prepared. We were offered some refreshments & breakfast from the restaurant while we waited and all was well. This was my 40th birthday trip & had requested a special decorative welcome as I had seen done for previous guests but there was none. I did not bother because I was hot & sweaty. Just wanted to shower and relax. I didn't inform management either but I did make notice of this. The rest of our stay was very good. Food delish and had daily turn down & maid service. The restaurant staff was amazing as I looked forward to it every morning. We had an issue with the vehicle rental company, Sanvics and I vowed to never rent from them again. Also had a few friends going to visit & stay at the hotel and advised them not to patronise Sanvics. The weekly food fair the hotel hosts was a bit confusing. Not my cup of tea but the entertainment was good. All in all, the hotel's location and staff were wonderful & amazing. Read less

They offered to house us in apartments at a different location, but would not provide transportation and refused to have any manager speak to us until the next morning. We will NOT be staying here in the future!! Beware of not having a place to stay the night of your arrival! Read less

A really lovely hotel, great bar and restaurant with different menus every night. Lovely pools and friendly staff. Only negatives- breakfast not great and the gym bike and cross trainer were ancient and unsafe.
