Reviewed 14 July 2012

We stayed for three nights in a Seagrape Beach Suite which is located directly on the beach with 2 sun loungers out the front overlooking the sea. The rooms had a lovely large bathroom with all the facilities that you would expect of a 5 star hotel.
Lunch was taken in the Sea & Surf restaurant and dinner in Oliver's and all meals were excellent.
If you want a fantastic caribbean beach with lovely clear water you cannot beat the location of this hotel, they have a large selection of rooms including some with their own pool and a wonderful spa where we had a very nice massage.
The location is just three miles from St Georges and it is worth a visit on a Saturday to visit the markets and do go out and see the rest of the island as there is lots to do and experience.
In the evening there was usually light entertainment but it was very quiet during the day and we had a fantastic rest. The hotel management were very switched on and nothing seemed to be too much trouble, there was a good kids club and some non-motorised watersports.
The swimming pool was lovely and next to the bar so you were never far away of refreshment.
We would definitely go back to this hotel again and to the same room type.

Room Tip: Seagrape are the ones most booked, the One bedroom suites on the beach were also lovely, the pool su...

I booked our trip in January with BA holidays we were booked into another hotel but these was a complication and BA recommended this hotel to me. I'm a single mum with children aged 9 & 11.5. I had been liaising with the hotel prior to my visit as I have a food sensitivity.
I took the recommendation from her about requesting a room near the pool; which for us was brilliant.
I'd asked the hotel to have a car meet us at the airport as it was so much cheaper than the BA offer within their deal. ($19 US) We arrived at the hotel to be greeted by the management with a view straight out to the sea through the hotel lobby with a welcome breeze. My children & I relaxed in reception with cool spiced face cloths & cool drinks. I had per-registered so it was quick & simple.
Our bags had been whisked away we were personally shown to our Sea Grape suite 21. Which I paced to be 30 steps to the pool & 25 to the main beach area! Fantastic for us. We were the end suite that had 2 queen sized beds VERY comfortable with beautiful cotton sheets & fluffy pillows...... Dreamy!
Were were all-inclusive so a fully stocked mini bar should you fancy a rum & coke before stepping out on the veranda the to your patio to relax with your kindle. Oh for those who cannot leave technology behind There was WiFi in the room & also an Ethernet point. I left my laptop out the whole time. There is also a business center if you wish to print out papers.

The Spice Island's reputation is attention to detail. They care SO much that you have a great time it really is their pleasure to make it all right for you.
In your room they also have Molton Brown products for you to use that get replenished as you use them. 2 kinds of soap, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel & body lotion (lovely!)
You can catch the sun rays as mentioned from your hammock or one of the 2 sunloungers on your patio. There are loungers under the sea grape trees and by the pool.
Food -> WOW You NEVER go hungry here! Breakfast Oh yes all you could wish for & more from cereal to eggs Benedict, lunch 3 course's of YUM! I only had pud twice I really could not eat anymore...... The menu is contemporary but if you fancy something else just ask & if they have it they will cook it for you. At around 4 you can order afternoon tea, my son loved this.. An English tradition served with sandwiches with the crusts cut off and a selection of home made cakes.... I only managed it once due to plenty for lunch. Dinner is formal but not stuffy formal men in trousers. 5 courses plenty of choice, fusion food with a classic twist, beautifully presented. Good choice of wine.
Now, the people..... What can I say all lovely, the staff greet you by name and are happy to chat. We were not the easiest with the wheat intolerance but they were always polite and kind, always helpful nothing was too much. The staff really are the making of the Spice Island they love their jobs and are aware of what their clients need & want. If it is not right they will go the extra mile to make it work. Thank you to each and every person who we met. A special mention to Alistair who saved my sleeping daughter after the management drinks party (for which we received a hand written invitation) from the rain shower, you were off so did not get to say good bye. A huge thank you to all the F&B staff who looked after us you made our visit and it was lovely to learn a bit about you. The bar staff for helping my son with his quirky non alcoholic cocktails. I like that the management recognise the staff's efforts with awards, these are on display in the reception area. The reception staff are knowledgeable & helpful, We used one of the hotels recommended drivers Bush for a trip out to the Belmont Estate. He was a good safe driver he gave my children so much information on the island as well as fruits & vegetables growing at one point he stopped a chap to get him to cut some leaves for Them to smell! It was a great trip at a good price. Bush also took us back to the airport.
The Spice Island is a lovely relaxing hotel that caters to your every need it has guests from around the world. It's not an entertainment hotel, there is music every other night we had singers and a steel band as an example. There is also a great kids club, mine asked to go and they made tee-shirts & hand printed the wall before they left.
The Spice Island really is the friendliest place I have ever stayed. The Best hotel on the island! We met so many people there of all ages at dinner everyone greeted each other chatting about where they or you had been if you wanted to. I'd say we made many friends. The beach.... Beautiful white sand blue sea from sunrise to sunset it has it's people excising from one end to the other swimmers sunbathers etc. There are vendors if you wish to buy that is fine if not just say no & they leave. My daughter had her hair braided ($20 US).

Thank you to all at the Spice Island for a long looked forward to refreshing break. As a family we had a super time. Thank you to all of you. If life lets me I will return & I will recommend you highly to anybody going to amazing Grenada.

Fantastic location right on the beach - do go for Seagrape Suites. The food was excellent with friendly, helpful staff.
Only one warning don't travel with Virgin Holidays. When my father passed away suddenly they were no help at all and could only suggest we contact our travel insurance company to get home. Not Rock Star service rather Rock Bottom, thank goodness for British Airways.

Spice Island Beach Resort definitely deserves its ranking of #1 in Grenada.

Before I arrived, I was concerned that the atmosphere may be formal and stuffy. It wasn’t. Whilst dinner is a white table cloth 5-course affair, the staff are friendly and want to ensure you enjoy your experience. Fabian is an absolute star and leads by example. He really went out of his way to ensure we had a lovely time. He even packed us off with the leftover cake from our anniversary dinner to enjoy on the flight home.

Some other reviewers have commented on the age of guests but there was a genuine mix of ages. Age was irrelevant anyway as most guests happily mixed. In all my travels I don’t think I’ve stayed anywhere where the guests were so friendly. The evening entertainment is on the subdued side so if you’re after a raucous night out, Spice Island probably isn’t the place for you.

The rooms were well kitted out with iPod docking stations, dvd players and Wifi. I love a comfy bed and Spice Island didn’t disappoint. We stayed in a Sea Grape Suite and nothing beats being able to step out of your room and onto the beach. Whilst the pool suites are more private we wouldn’t have traded our view of the beach.

We most definitely felt spoilt during our time at Spice Island and would recommend it to people who enjoy luxury (who doesn’t?) and having everything taken care of.

Room Tip: Sea Grape for the beach views

Just had two wonderful weeks at Spice Island resort. The location is superb on a 3 mile sandy beach and every aspect of our holiday here was 5 star, deserving all of the good accolades on Trip Advisor.
On arrival we were greeted by Ryan Hopkin and handed a cold towel and a cocktail. From that moment until leaving we were treated to some of the best and most friendly service we have ever had.
Our room was a Seagrape suite (No 34) which was ideally positioned virtually on the beach but at the quieter end of the resort and with some shrubbery screening so you dont get "spectators". We would highly recommend these rooms but felt that 32 to 47 or 9 to 21 looked the best numbers, 1 to 8 at the other end looked a bit close to the water sports building and this area of the beach was heavily used by locals at weekend. If you want complete privacy any of the pool suites would be good, the Oleander suites are also quiet at the back of the property but dont have much view to the sea, even the upper floor views are largely blocked by the back of the Seagrape suites. The garden areas are beautiful and well kept. Seagrape suites are large and comfortable with Jacuzzi bath and large separate shower, and large comfortable beds. The patios are well furnished with seating, umbrella and hammock. If (when) we go here again we would certainly book a Seagrape suite. Free Mini Bar included.
As a change from the beach the pool area is really lovely and private, and just steps from the bar area (see photo). Change or wear cover ups when going in for lunch.
We had the all-inclusive option and food here is in our opinion fantastic. Hot and cold choices for breakfast, smoked salmon if you want it (just ask) and some "local specials" such as the creole fish breakfast well worth a try.
Lunch menus change weekly and again local dishes such as Roti and the speciality "Oil down" just have to be tried.
Dinner menus change daily and there are also specials and a "light option".Roast beef here was some of the most tender and tasty we ever had on holiday. Dress code for dinner is the usual long trousers and collared shirts for men, elegant casual for women. We enjoyed dressing up a bit more for the weekly Managers Cocktail receptions, a good opportunity to chat to the management and mingle with other guests.
The caribbean is a colourful vibrant place and the food reflects this, if you like to try different things this place is heaven. If you are ultra conservative you might be a bit bemused by some dishes but there is always a "safe" option.
House wines were certainly drinkable, choice of 2 white 2 Red and a Rose. If you fancy a change, the list of wines by the bottle has a wide and good quality range. We found decent French white, Italian and Argentinian red (fantastic) for around USD55 (remember that 15% vat and 10% service will be added).
Bartenders Andre Dexter and Karen were all very good and wine top ups at mealtimes were at just the right pace.
Fabian and Cristall were real characters at table and we could readily see that significant effort had been put into staff training which has certainly resulted in very high standards.
Ryan Hopkin runs a car hire service at the hotel and has a nice fleet of new vehicles at reasonable prices, we paid USD300 for a VW Taureg for 2 days exploring, well worth doing but be aware that roadsigns are very poor. Otherwise getting around by Taxi eg USD30 for round trip to St Georges.
So we loved the location the room the food and the staff. A separate air conditioned restaurant as a retreat from humidity and mosquitos would have been nice but the resort is quite small, 67 rooms in total so probably not practical.
Biting insects, beach vendors and birds scavenging around tables are all a fact of life in the Caribbean, but you know this before you go so certainly cant complain or blame the hotel.
Overall one of the best places we have been and certainly up with the very best in the Caribbean. Not cheap but this standard never is, go for it if you possibly can.

Room Tip: Seagrape suites between 9 and 47 give best seafront location. Choose pool suites for total privacy...
