Wonderful Vacation Again

Feb 14th, 2020

We have once again just returned from another fortnight break at Spice. This resort excels in bringing a special quality of service to its Clients which explains why many Guests are "repeat customers" enjoying the hospitality of the owner Sir Royston and his excellent staff of many. I see there have been some Tripadviser comments about the meals where some guests did not like the content, yes some of the menus content can be a bit fussy and difficult for some, you can always ask the staff what you would like for dinner that evening. Perhaps the addition of smoothies at breakfast may be a advantage to guests "saving themselves" for the Lunch, Afternoon tea and the 5 course evening meal. It has been mentioned that many guests are of an senior age group in January, this of course is because after the Christmas / New Year break many families have to return to school and work! We have been to this resort many times and have often seen a celebrity of the large screen / tv having a rest, they can relax without being bothered by anyone! We stay in hotels around the world but I must say this always our favourite break We have too many staff names to mention on this site as they are all excellent. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Very disappointing

Feb 9th, 2020

I don't understand who writes the glowing reviews on TripAdvisor, but Spice Island did not meet our expectations. Although we have travelled widely, I have never written a TA review before, but this time I feel I need to share my experience with others. Good points Beach front rooms are fabulous, leading straight onto the white sand beach and turquoise sea. Super comfortable beds, quiet air conditioning, wonderful housekeeping and complimentary mini-bar restocked every day. Grand Anse beach is great to walk along (although very busy when 3 large cruise boats visit at the same time!). All the staff are lovely and Brian Hardy, the manager, is always available to deal with problems--of which, unfortunately, we had a few. Bad points This was the most expensive Caribbean hotel we have stayed in and thus our expectations were high, but unfortunately we were disappointed in many areas. We had no water for a shower on three mornings during our stay. On several other mornings the water was not really hot enough to shower, even after running it for 5 minutes. On several evenings there was nothing we liked on the dinner menu, which had limited choice. The food was often pretentious and unhealthy. Several other guests also complained to us about the food. The Friday buffet was especially poor quality. We noticed that some guests ate outside the hotel that evening. The breakfast buffet had very limited choice, notably the poor selection of fruit. Some days the only fruit was melon, orange and grapefruit, which we can get back home. Eggs from the a la carte menu were often overcooked. The layout of the restaurant is poor, with a lot of old-fashioned banquette seating. The few good tables along the beach front, with a view, were always taken before the restaurant even opened, with guests queuing some evenings from 6.45pm (!). The sunbeds near our room were too close together for a 5-star hotel, and most of the sun umbrellas were too small with insufficient shade. Guests put towels to reserve sunbeds at 7am, but then didn't use them for 3 hours. Not what one expects at an expensive hotel. It is a public beach and at weekends we had non-residents siting under the trees next to our hotel sunbeds, playing loud music and smoking__not the relaxing, privacy we had expected given the cost of the hotel. Mosquito fogging was excessive. Twice a week, the bar was closed at sunset and guests were forced to remain in their rooms for 45 minutes. The average age of guests was around 70. Many of the older, long-time repeat guests were clearly unaware of much better hotels at lower prices elsewhere in the Caribbean. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Fantastic

Feb 6th, 2020

Were were upgraded to a sea front room, which was very nice and all one could wish for, clean, bright, all the facilities you wanted and if there was anything you needed or wanted you only had to ask and it was brought to you promptly. Although there was only one restaurant, the food was as good probably better than any of the restaurants in Grenada with always a change of menu and choice, the all inclusive was top class, the staff were always friendly and helpfull. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Charming but I left disappointed

Jan 21st, 2020

I had really high expectations of Spice Island. I accept I must be in the minority but my husband and I spent ten days there last March and although he enjoyed it more than I did we both felt for the money it should be considerable better. We arrived after a flight from the U.K. and were met as promised at the airport. The car had seen better days though and the driver was not very personable. I say this because on departure, after we had left a significant gratuity with the management for back office staff, we were escorted out to a luxury Mercedes and our driver was exemplary and professional. We stayed in an Almond Suite. I didn’t want to stay in a Sea grape suite as they are right on the public beach and it does get noisy, at one end is a bar where the booze cruise docks. No fault of the hotel though. The Almond Suites have a lovely pool and are very private. I didn’t like the fact that the wardrobes are in the bathroom. There is no walk in shower, you actually have to climb over a wide ledge as the shower is over the bath. I noticed the grouting needed replacing which I thought was bad. The overall square footage of the room is generous, especially the outside area but the bedroom itself is quite small with not much room to sit and relax unless you sit on the bed. My main dislike of Spice Island was Oliver’s restaurant. It needs a refurbishment. It’s dreary with old fashioned blanquette seats that reminded me of old Beefeater Inns. Breakfast was poor, at least the buffet was. They kept running out of natural yogurt, the fruit selection was limited as were the breads and pastries. My husband ordered cooked a la Carte which he enjoyed but it would take an age to arrive as did the luke warm coffee. Lunch is served in an adjacent restaurant and was better, as was the service, most days. The buffet lunch was served one day and again it was ok but nothing spectacular. Dinner is in Oliver’s. The choice is plentiful but to me missed the mark. One night we didn’t like anything in the menu and went to have dinner at Calabash. The food, service and ambiance was far superior to Spice Island but we didn’t like the hotel as much. Spice island is charming and the staff are lovely. The guests were predominantly, at the time we stayed, rather elderly and so the bar was dead in the evening. Perhaps at a different time of year it would have more atmosphere. We enjoyed our holiday and perhaps an average rating is a little harsh but we have just returned from 10 nights in The Maldives and paid less at a far superior five star resort on an all inclusive basis in a better pool suite, travelling business class than we did at Spice Island.
