Trip Report MyMoosie's Hotel Hopping Report - Grenada

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! I thought I would get a jump-start on my trip report (at least the accommodations part) since I tend to slack off in writing them in a timely manner after coming home. ;-) Hopefully some parts of this will be helpful to those in the midst of planning their vacation. Here's the first part of my hotel-hopping adventure in the Isle of Spice!

Petite Anse Hotel - Located in the northern part of Grenada
What a beautiful, charming property! I’ve heard so many great things about this hotel from my friends on the island that I decided to check it out and stay for a night. Now I wish I stayed for a few more days. It is so peaceful and relaxing. The cottages are set on the hillside, but the great thing is that the hill is not too steep so it is not a pain in the-you-know what to go up and down to the beach. The beach is a bit rough for swimming, but it is so nice to just walk the little cove back and forth...it took all the stress away!

I stayed in the Sorrel cottage which is closest to the pool and restaurant/bar area. It was perfect, as I wanted to be closer to where there are some people as I was traveling alone. The cottage was very nicely furnished, with a four poster bed and a mozzie netting. There is a/c in the room, but you can also choose to open the windows and french doors and enjoy the constant breeze. I love the wood floors, and the colorful bedspread. This is what a Caribbean room should feel like!

In the room there is a mini-fridge which is really great to have. They provide you with a bottle of water, plus milk if you wish to make tea in your room. There is also a safe in the room, although it looks a bit small for a laptop. I didn’t bother putting my stuff in it. There is high-speed internet connection, but not wifi. They will lend you an Ethernet cable if you forget to bring yours. (As a side note, if you really want wifi, consider getting an Apple Airport Express. Easy to set-up. I usually travel with one and set-up my own wifi connection.)

The bathroom is plenty big. The water pressure in the shower is fantastic!! They provide you with lovely bath gel, shampoo, and conditioner.

I love this place and will definitely come back for a longer stay in the future. The staff are warm and friendly. I met and chatted with the owner, Philip, who is so laid-back and down-to-earth. That’s what I love about this property…beautiful and classy, yet it retains that Caribbean feel to it. And very unpretentious! My kind of place. ;-)

If you are looking to see and explore the northern part of Grenada, or just want to get away to a peaceful setting, Petite Anse gets 2 thumbs up from me! Or stop by and have a drink and enjoy the views. If you like fruity drinks like me, be sure and have one of Devon's Banana Gordon cocktail...or fruit punch...or Yellow Bird cocktail...very refreshing! :-)

I will post photos in the next day or so…

Stay tuned…next stop, Spice Island.
