A West Indies Vacation In Grenada - Articles Surfing
Grand Anse Beach is world renowned, with beautiful white sands and crystal clear turquoise blue waters is the backdrop to and only a few feet away from the Spice Island Beach resort, which by reputation and vote is probably the number one resort on the island of Grenada in the West Indies.
The Spice Island Beach has been highly rated as a West Indian Vacation Spot for some time now, and with very good reason. The accommodation has been described as varying from the superb to the spectacular, varying from beachfront suites, to garden suites, to suites on the beach with private pools. All have been upgraded in every way since Hurrican Ivan, and they are now amongst the best in the Caribbean with huge bathrooms, many with Jacuzzis as well as showers.
On balance it is much better value for money to stay in the Seagrape rooms than an Almond Luxury Suite, even if the latter does have its own plunge pool.
Each suite has Phillippe Starck fixtures, flat screen TV, DVD Players, frette linens, and Molton Brown amenities, making for an absolutely fabulous experience.
The main part of the resort, and it has only 66 rooms, making it very much a boutique hotel, is in a stylish building which has a bar, a boutique, a fitness suite, a games room, and a seafront restaurant with a very good reputation called 'Olivers', where you can sample Creole and International Cuisine. The table d'hote menu is excellent, and there is a Caribbean buffet on Fridays and a barbecue lunch buffet on a Sunday. The dishes contain a lot of local produce, which is always good to see, the only slight challenge is that the pace of service is somewhat slow, but this is the Caribbean, and you are on holiday!!
One of the many attractive features of the Spice Island Beach Resort is the fact that it is all inclusive except for champagne and bottled wines. There is nothing quite like getting to the end of your vacation, and there are no nasty suprises on your extras bill!! The quality of the wine by glass is actually very good indeed.
This is not a beach resort on an empty deserted Caribbean beach, with only one hotel. The area around the Spice Island Beach Resort is in fact in quite a built up area., this will not spoil your West Indies vacation on Grenada at all. In fact the beach is well used by guests of the resort, and the very nice swimming pool is hardly used. You will have little difficulty getting sun beds on the beach, and enough shade if no umbrellas are available.
One of the nice things about The Spice Island Beach Resort, and this doesn't always hold true at other West Indian Vacation Spots is the quality of the guests and their behaviour. This is partly due to the fact it isn't a cheap holiday, or the fact that many of the guests are British!!
