Value for Money

Posted Apr 18, 2015
Pros: Very scenic and relaxing setting at the Grenadian by Rex Resort
Cons: The no short pants policy at dinner should be stated at the time of booking to give guests a choice.
Overall the staff seems well trained, friendly and helpful. Very good meals and clean and tidy facility. But I had to wear one pants to dinner nightly since there is a no short pants policy at dinner. Meanwhile, a bunch of kids were moving freely around the dinning space in short pants and slippers

Pros: The rooms are comfortable and the grounds are well kept.
Cons: Elevators .
Location: Nice location and close to the airport. The beach is not bad either.
The hotel has no elevators and its situated on hilly terrain. It's very spread out and one has to walk a lot to get to any of the facilities . The rooms are situated on top of the hill and with no elevators, you have to walk up several flights of steep steps. Plus you have to carry your own bags because there's isn't any Valet service . If anyone has disabilities or aged or just difficulties with walking, this place is not for them. You can see the beach but you have to walk some distance to get to it. Same thing with accessing your meals. The property overall is nice but only suitable for the very fit.

Location, location, location

We stayed at the Rex one night before going to another resort for the rest of our stay. This was planned intentionally. We are very picky but choose the Rex because of its location and our short term plans. The Resort offers a beautiful setting and great location, literally 3 mins from the airport. It is much older and dated than we thought but the staff is all so kind and welcoming. The property and rooms are exteremly clean. We arrived late (10:05) but the front desk called the resturant mgr and they held it open so we grab a quick bite to eat. I thought that was very thoughtful. The place overall has so much potential. They put fresh flower pedals all around the room adding some lovely touches, it made us feel special. Not even close to the level of rooms we typically stay in but with so much effort made by the resort it would be hard to say anything negative. This place would be great for families or a couple with a conservative budget. The ocean views, their beach and the pool location is definitley five star. Rooms are very old style and the beds are very hard. Linens were nice and room was very clean.

Nice Beach, food needs improvement, grumpy staff

Posted Dec 26, 2014
The Hotel staff needs training! They seemed grumpy and bored constantly, hardly ever smiled...I just didn't feel very welcome. The hotel needs renovations...it shows wear and tear in various places. It was not dirty however. The location was fine, very close to the airport but there was very little airplane noise. Great beach right by the hotel. The food choices were rather limited but tasty. Very little fruit was offered at breakfast and none at lunch or dinner.

Close to airport, nice beach.

Posted Dec 1, 2014
Pros: Location is great price is half of Sandals, since we were visiting our daughter and off resort often it suited our needs perfectly
Cons: Food choices and quality, staffing and training, repairs and quality of facility
Stayed here to visit our daughter at SGU, her house was very near the resort. Resort is dated and understaffed. While booked as an all inclusive there are very few options included. One buffet at each meal that are repetitive and boring. One other limited menu oriental restaurant but you have to pay to eat here. Bars are sparsely stocked and staffed by only one bartender. Bartenders seemed to be uninterested in their jobs and their guests. Wait staff are also too short staffed and seem to plod through their day. The sanitary practices are mediocre at best. Rooms are basic no frills with weak air conditioners and limited US power. Wifi was fairly good throughout the resort.

Ok, but not outstanding

Posted Nov 30, 2014
If you want a pool and beach experience close to the airport , it's fine. But rooms can be a little primitive, ie two safes not working and beds that are as hard as concrete.

Limited food choices & must wear pants to dinner??

Posted Nov 29, 2014
Pros: Decent beach area on sports side, awesome sunsets, Charmaine at hotel excursions was amazing & we knew exactly what to expect on a trip booked w her.
Cons: Men have to wear long pants & a collared shirt after 6pm & women can wear whatever they wish. There was no a/c in the main dinning room! Not happy!!
Location: St. Georges was a long ways away, but Aquarium restaurant is just a short beach walk from hotel and it was amazing every time we went!!!!
We arrived Nov 3/14 & stayed for 2 weeks. Would not recommend 2 weeks at this resort or this island for that matter as not that much to do! First off taxi to hotel was $10US for a literal 2 minute ride but likely still cheaper than a hotel trans. HOTEL: Our room was oceanfront, waves lapping was lovely. Beds were squeaky, a/c worked great, tub was filthy, location to pool & restaurant a bit far, pool was up plenty of stairs & washrooms on main floor, lawn was overgrown and unkept, pillows were either very thin or very thick but both flat & hard, food was very limited, not alot of selection & very predictable - ie: fruit salad, consisted of watermelon only. Drinks are only available in 2 locations & at certain times. Scope out Terry and have him make you a BBCC! Yum!!! EXCURSIONS: Book with the Charmaine at the hotel or Dexter on the beach. If you want value for your money we strongly suggest NOT booking with Air Canada Vacations. Sure Dexter is a guy on the beach trying to make a living but he actually goes with you on the trip & you don't pay til lunch time. Charmaine explains everything in great detail so you know exactly what you're getting in advance. Air Can sugar coats details & its VERY hard to get a hold of them if there's an issue plus they DO NOT go with you. Trip to Carriacou island with Air Can is a complete rip off - save your money & avoid disappointment! *Tips are included on your bill when you eat offsite so need to tip extra
