Driving in Grenada

My boyfriend and I are traveling to Grenada next month for about a week. We are very excited about this trip! We are deciding if we should rent a car -- it seems like most people suggest that we do, especially as we are staying at more secluded properties and in the thick of Grand Anse action.

I have heard mixed things about the driving in Grenada. I feel like we could handle it, but I was curious how "scary" the roads are. I know Grenada is hilly/somewhat mountainous, and I just wanted to be sure the roads don't involve careening through hairpin turns on the face of a huge drop off with no barricade, especially as we are not left-side drivers by nature. :)

I travelled throughout Costa Rica and just cannot imagine driving somewhere like that on roads like that...while I don't think it is the same situation at all in Grenada from what I've read, I just wanted to inquire.

Also, we are most likely staying at LaLuna for the first leg of our trip. Our flight does not get in until 8. I am thinking we would probably arrange to have us driven to LaLuna and then get a car delivered to the resort the next day, rather than trying to drive that road at night (I have heard it is not the best?). Is this the plan you'd recommend?
