More about Spice Island Beach Resort

All - inclusive all of the time.

by stopatnothin about La Source was my playground

Four poster beds w/ my room directly facing the ocean.

Please note though this property is quite spread out and there are hilltop rooms so bring those sneakers.

The Spice Island Beach Resort is on Grand Anse Beach ( most popular beach on the island ) and is just as lovely with a great staff. This property is unique b/c it is frequented mainly by people from the UK who stay a minimum of 10 nights. This resort is popular w/ repeat clients as well as newly weds.

Oh, did I mention that spa treatments are included daily in the ratesalong with all of your meals and drinks? You can't get much more R & R than that.

Tip: For maximum quietude,...

by beach_freak

Tip: For maximum quietude, head to the southern end of the beach toward Spice Island Beach Resort; the closest public access road is a mile away, and few non—hotel guests make the trek down.

Spice Island Resort - Fantastic All Inclusive

by TripAdvisor Member PierrelePilote

Spice Island is up and running again after Hurricane Ivan. 2 weeks all-inclusive was fantastic from beginning to reluctant end. The friendly staff could not have been more helpful, happily serving drinks to us on the beach away from the bar. Our Sea Grape suite opened out straight onto Grand Anse beach and the Caribbean Sea. No hidden extras in the all-inclusive plan, including mini bar and branded spirits. The house wine was the only minor niggle. There was a choice of 2 reds and 2 whites but they were surprisingly undistinguished Vin de Pays d'Ocs; drinkable but you longed for something with more depth and flavour. That aside, this was a faultless stay in a fabulous resort where the guest comes first.

Spice Island Resort Hotel

by magnolias about Spice Island Resort Hotel

$135 US approximately but that is very near what all the larger hotels charge and this one is right ON the beach! The rooms are very Caribbean with large ceiling fans and wicker furniture and pure white linens on everything. There are jacuzzis in some of the rooms and the ocean is just steps out of your door. The rooms have a large double sliding glass door view of the ocean and everything is provided for your comfort.

Blue Horizons Cottage Hotel

by bitsa about Blue Horizons Cottage Hotel

Comfortable, well furnished and spotlessly clean units. About 200 yards from the beach, and set in tropical gardens. La Belle Creole restaurant is one of the best on the island. Nice pool and pool bar area. Free access to all facilities (inc. non-motor watersports) at sister resort - Spice Island Resort (very expensive otherwise).

wonderful

by TripAdvisor Member neil-carol

were do you start with this wonderful hotel.upon arrival we were greeted with cold towels,drinks and warm smiles.Our beach front suite with its king size bed,walk in shower,jaccuzzi bath,and patio on the beach complete with two sun loungers & twin hammock,well stocked mini bar (re filled everyday) was beautifully presented.The beach must be one of the best inthe caribbean.The staff from the beach cleaner to the general manager cannot do enough for you,the bar staff in particular,delroy,nash,jones & tasha,are a credit to the resort.Food at some all inclusive resorts can sometimes be a bit of a lottery BUT NOT AT THIS HOTEL,the food has to be tasted to be believed and the presentation is worthy of any top hotel in the world from a simple omlette to the sunday roast beef every dish was delicious.If you get the chance to visit the spice island beach resort please do so because it simply is the best !!!!.
ps thanks to Torvill & Dean,Morag & Elsbeth for making our stay even better if that is possible

First Class Escapism!

by TripAdvisor Member MELSY

My fiancee & I have just returned from 10 days at Spice Island.
We booked at short notice on a recommendation from our travel agents & were not disappointed.
I have been to many other Caribbean islands & I have to say the beach at Grand Anse was the prettiest I have seen.
We stayed in a Seagrape Suite which was directly on the beach-with stunning views.The suite was extremely roomy & adequately furnished.The bathroom was stunning.
A word of warning however-the soundproofing is non-existent.We were lucky being on the end of a block;but could here everything going on in the suite next door.The patio area we had was a good size-however the suites in the middle of the blocks (there are 4 suites per block) did look a little cramped.Everything is open plan so you do need to get on with your neighbours as there is no privacy.
As other reviews have stated this is a public beach so you do get hawkers-however I have to say they werent unduly irritating & a polite no thankyou did see them on their way!
The service from the staff was excellent.The food was good -although they would benefit from having an alternative lighter dining option at night.The prospect of a 5 course dinner every night did become daunting!
The only real disappointment was the Spa.Its very expensive & not up to the hotels standard by any means.
Whilst we were there it was fair to say that the hotel was very quiet (approx 40% full).It primarily consisted of older retired people.If you are looking for any nightlife this hotel is definitely not for you!
Would we go back-yes,but there are so many other places I want to visit around the world!!

A perfect place to relax

by TripAdvisor Member Pantani

We stayed in a Sea Grape Suite, the bed was very comfortable indeed, the bathroom was superb (Villeroy and Grohe brands), the TV, DVD was all perfect and it was nice to have a continually stocked minibar.
The beach was fantastic, lovely sand, sea.
The food was very very good, all the meals, Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, the 5 course dinner wasn't overpowering as the portion size was just right. The serving staff at all the meals were very knowledgeable of the menu.
The gym is perfect for "holiday" workouts, 2 bikes, 2 treadmills and X-trainer and some free weights and a machine.
The staff are all very attentive.
There isn't that much to do though, perfect however if you want to relax.
The clientele age was quite high in my opinion & I'm late 30's.

Forget the golf, no person from Europe or the US would classify the 9 hole course as a golf course, so don't take your clubs, but go up there for something to do & a bit of fun.
Also, under no circumstances rely on the local airlines getting you to the place you want to go at any time close to the time you need, this is particularly important when you are going home, my advice for Caribbean travellers, either fly direct or make sure that on the day you are travelling home that you wake up on the island you are travelling from.

As good as advertised

by TripAdvisor Member kenandsherry

We just returned from Spice Island . It was excellent. The food was outstanding , plenty of choices and variety , prepared very creatively and attractively presented. The staff is extremely friendly and well trained. Our pool suite was perfect - well decorated, clean, comfortable. The beach peddlars are a nuisance. The sea kayaks don't really exist . Forget about the golf - its as bad as it gets. That is all minor. This is a beatiful, well managed property.

The Spice Island-Grenada

by BROOKS

Grenada is called the 'Spice Island', and for good reason, it's the world's second largest exporter of nutmeg. In addition, it produces large quantities of cloves, cinnamon, ginger and mace. The capital city is St. George's, the currency is the East Caribbean Dollar, the official language is English and the population is over 98,000. Since the 1983 coup and the subsequent US invasion, tourism is on the rebound on both Grenada and on its sister island of Carriacou.

Grenada is a rolling, mountainous island, covered with fragrant spice trees and rare tropical flowers. Bordered by stunning beaches, and dotted with picturesque towns, this verdant island has long been a major source of nutmeg, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, and cocoa. The seductive drifts through the colourful Saturday markets and Grenada's dense forests. In the interior of this volcanic island are cascading rivers and waterfalls, lush rainforests, and one of the most breathtakingly beautiful mountain lakes imaginable. The capital, St. George's, is widely held to be the loveliest city in the Caribbean. Its horseshoe-shaped harbour is surrounded by a pastel rainbow of dockside warehouses and the red-tiled roofs of traditional shops and homes.

Grenada's physical beauty is complemented by its rich history and vibrant, living cultural heritage. Local festivals, fairs, and markets remain an integral part of life on Grenada. Its centuries-old spice plantations and rum distilleries still use traditional methods, emphasizing quality rather than quantity. Although the tourist industry has become more substantial in recent years, the island's easy rhythms and the friendly openness of its residents evoke an atmosphere that has long since vanished elsewhere.

For many visitors, of course, the measure of any island is taken by its beaches and coral reefs, and Grenada offers plenty of both. The island is ringed with miles of picture-perfect strands, including both entrancing black and sugar-fine white sand beaches. Grand Anse Beach, a smooth expanse stretching for two miles around the curve of a gentle bay, is world famous. Grenada has plenty to offer those interested in offshore pleasure as well, with easily accessible and pristine reefs off the coast of both Grenada and its sister island, Carriacou.

JohnB- In case you haven't checked my earlier Grenada forum message,
Here is a clip from a recent TripAdvisor review:
"La Sagesse is a fantastic, affordable retreat on Grenada, and as my girlfriend Nancy and I discovered on our recent romantic holiday there, a perfect place to escape the stresses of everyday life.

The beachfront rooms are nicely decorated and local art hangs from the walls. There are no TV's or phones to interrupt the sounds of the the waves, just 30 feet or so outside your windows. The staff is incredibly friendly, which we treasure while on vacation."

if you are interested. It sounds like you would like it.

Spice Island resort is in the tourist area however La Sagesse is more remote and further away from the capital. How close do you want to be to the 'action'?

As for the beaches both are fine however I prefer Spice Island's.
