Cozy and Quaint

This was actually my first trip to the island of Grenada. Heliconia is conveniently located walking distance from the airport. They do offer a shuttle pick up service within set business hours. Check-in was smooth and the room was clean. This hotel is ideal for those who do not require all the extra fluff of an all inclusive resort. I was fortunate enough to stay with a local so I had a different experience of the island. We utilized the local buses to get around ( you can get picked up and dropped off right in front of hotel). The shopping and restaurants are located in Grand Anse which is about a 10 minute bus ride. We purchased groceries and cooked our own meals, the kitchenette has all your basic utensils; although I wish there were napkins or paper towels.The first night I ordered room service ( BLT and fries), food didn't take long to come and it was good. Following morning we had the breakfast, the menu is fairly simple and the prices are in U.S dollars. To maximize your dollar, I would recommend purchasing items to cook upon arrival. Otherwise the service is courteous and the location is away from all the hustle and bustle, it's cozy and quite and depending on location of your room, great panoramic views.
