?Grenada - Carriacou (Accommodations)

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be staying at the Blue Horizons for our third time at the end of February. While we have done a number of tours of Grenada we have not yet ventured out to the nearby islands.

We have decided to spend at least one night on Carriacou to see if this would suit us for a more lengthy vacation. We are not too fussy but would want at least a coffee maker, air conditioning, on-site security especially at night and an on-site or nearby restaurant for meals. I have reviewed a number of sites (including grenadaexplorer) and have identified the following hotels/cottages that may suit our needs...Hotel Laurena, Seaclusion Suites, Sunset Beach, Ade's Dream and Kim's Plaza. Has anyone stayed at any of these locations?

We plan on flying (with SVG) over rather than taking the ferry. Should we be booking flights now or would we be able to secure flights with short notice (we haven't decided exactly which dates we would go) ?

From what I have read recently there has been some new developments in Grenada. Has anyone taken the Discovery Train? I would imagine that this is a big hit with the cruise crowd (given the short period of time they have ashore) but am wondering if this would be something we should consider even though we have been to St. Georges many times. From what I have read it takes you into areas that you would not normally venture during a walk-about.

I have read that the Grand Anse university campus has been sold and that the 'ladies' are no longer serving meals. Is this true? Have they relocated elsewhere?

The underwater sculpture park has had some additions. Has anyone been?
