Short Trip Report - Grenada

Jump to last reply

Well, our long awaited trip to Grenada has come and gone...sigh. I hesitated to write this because I don't want people flocking. I wish GND would stay just as it is. We didnt do much of anything on this trip but a little snorkeling. The rest was just resting after the hell of a year we had.

I wanted to thank ejcrowe and mymoosie and all the folks at grenadaexplorer.com for the tips and recs.

We'll be back. Oh well here goes...

Flew Air Jamaica. Not bad. Hot meal, which is practically non-existent today. Flights never on time, but not too bad. I would fly AJ again, but they are having shake-ups at the CEO level and had a walkout at Mobay the week we were gone. I hope it doesnt change too much.

Archie's Car Rental. I would rent from them again if the price was right. Good service. Okay car. The lady wasnt there when we arrived, had an emergency. So we took a taxi to the hotel, she called later on, and delivered the car to the hotel next morning. No hassles.

Coyaba Resort. Can't say enough good things about Coyaba. Very well run place. Customer is first. Food was great. Room very nice. Bed bugs the size of VW's (hahaha...just kidding...must deter...dont want crowds here too).

Grand Anse. What a lovely beach. The water is so clean, that we had tons of star fish and some nice sea life out in front of the resort. Nice!

Aquarium. My favorite thing to do during the day (went 3 times). Loved the beach for snorkeling and the restaurant beach bar for limin. Anshon makes the best Pina Colada I ever had..ever!

We ate at the resort quite a bit. We never had a bad meal out. We tried:

The Grill at Spiceland Mall. Good Roti.

Red Crab. Good food. Loved the lambi cocktail.

The Beachhouse. Loved this place. The ambiance is fantastic. The mosquitos were bad when we first got there, but they provided Off and put coils all around the place. It was okay after that.

Aquarium. Fab. fab. fab. Can't say a bad word about this place. Well maybe that hill is a little hard to navigate after a couple of cocktails. =)

Well, that's it in a nutshell. Read three books, limed a lot, and just enjoyed the laid back, no hassle-ness of GND. We will def. be back.

Peace, Greenie
