Could have been so much better
Posted Nov 5, 2016
My stay was for a week. Immediately upon arrival I realized I should have packed an electrical outlet adapter for my computer and cellphone charger, which can handle either 110v or 220v. Some hotels have one or two US 110v outlets, but the standard outlet that should be expected in Grenada is UK 220v. I just needed an adapter and asked the hotel desk on the first night. Not even the shaver outlet in the bathroom worked as it seemed blocked. They said they were out, but were expecting some checkouts and would drop it off in the room when available. It never arrived, even after asking for a couple of days. On the last day of my stay, I saw another guest with an adapter and asked the desk if they had another, which I received. I was charging during the day at the university and realized the fridge was on a transformer, which I used if I was desperate when working in my room at night. I also asked to have the shower drain examined as it would only stay halfway open/closed (but the handle could be pushed and held in either direction), creating ankle deep water when showering. I also told this to the front desk for a few days and gave up. There were small black ants in the bathroom near the sink and by the desk, which I just tolerated. Grenada has an chronic ant problem. The wifi was very spotty. It was only stable at the desk (fortunately) and near the front door. The bed comforter was stored in a drawer, not made up. My roommate moved out to a nicer hotel.
