I took my family there for lunch. It took the resturant TWO hours to deliver two pizzas, and a lazanna calallou lunch to our table. Disgusting service. And the response is: "we are sorry". This is inexcusable and sub-standard service. If you tead this post.: DON'T GO THERE AT ALL. Dont have to repeat this advice, do I?
After waiting for an hour and a half for our food, I got nothing but attitude from the staff and was told to wait. The blended drinks suck just a little more than the attitude here I don’t recommend ever dining here! Worst experience ever I’m stood by the toilet throwing up! Never dine here!
We stayed in the property in one of their oceanfront villas. It was truly such a spectacular stay. The grounds and gardens are very well kept. The room was a dream, very romantic, and you feel like your are really away from the world. The restaurant provides delicious food throughout the day. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Above all, Christine and Devin really go above and beyond to make sure that everything is running smoothly and that their guests are having a great time. There is a lightship boat in the property that has entertainment on the weekends with live music and open bars. It was such a great vacation, and I would love to go back. Highly recommend if you are needing to go to a paradise, relax, and disconnect for a little while. Thank you Devin and Christine for making this stay so incredible. I look forward to going back.…
My second stay at Le Phare Bleu was amazing. With your own villa to enjoy, a lovely pool just off the beach, and an fantastic restaurant right at your finger tips you are guaranteed a good stay. The staff are all friendly and insure you are well taken care of and safe. Overall loved it!!
We have visited this property in the past but understood there were new owners and we wanted to check it out. First stop we checked out the businesses that have moved into the property (see separate reviews for them). It is nice that the new owners are trying to establish a bit more of a community - similar to what we see at home at ski resorts like Sun Peaks and Silver Star. Property is clean, staff is polite, attentive and provided good service. We enjoyed a late lunch one day at the newly rebranded Tropical Tavern and then returned for their Friday night live music event on the lightship - which was really lovely. Only reason I didn’t give it a 5 was that we have not stayed on the property so can’t speak to the rooms.
We have stayed at various places in Grenada over the past 10 years prior to sailing so we always need a few days to relax, this place is better than the website , villas are large , bedrooms luxurious and clean bathrooms, staff very friendly , pool lovely free water sport toys , good restaurant with excellent roti , we asked to come back and use the facilities for the day before we flew at night and they welcomed us back , I would highly recommend!
We had a garden villa which was comfortably appointed and we enjoyed our stay overall but there were a few issues which could easily be put right. The bed was comfortable, but the bedroom was very dark and without a great deal of accessible storage. The outside seating area was attractive and comfortable. However, the kitchen was not particularly well equipped/maintained, eg no bottle opener available and there was no plug in the sink, which was a challenge washing up. Had to ask for a hair dryer as none available when we arrived. We did enjoy our meals at the restaurant. The location is remote and quiet and you really need a car here. Beach and swimming not great compared with other beaches on Grenada.
Villas are nice and clean with a very comfortable bedroom, the place is very peaceful. Rooms are made up every other day, verandhas are lovely and relaxing. The beaches are small and not very pleasant, the one to the left appears nice on the sand but when you go out to knee level you are wading through dark sloppy mud! The one to the right is overgrown with seaweed. The restaurant is ok but service is generally not over friendly and slow, we waited 90 minutes for a very poor pizza! Sometimes the reception staff were helpful but at other times they hardly acknowledged that you were there!
We stayed in the Serenity villa which was quite wonderful. Everything was great. The restaurant was wonderful and reasonably priced, which was good since the resort is pretty remote. Beware that on Sundays the kitchen closes around 4PM. There is a small on-site grocery store with basic provisions open six days a week. The resort provides free use of their Hobie Wave sailboat, paddle boards, and kayaks. A special bonus was the on-site Blue Light Gin distillery - thanks for the great tour! The villa could have used a good cleaning - we moved a couch slightly and it appears that nobody had cleaned under the couch in at least a year. The check-in was quite slow; we arrived two hours early and girl at the front desk didn't seem to have customer service as a top priority; she never checked to see if our room was ready. We finally were granted access to the room about 20 minutes after the check-in time. I know things run at a slow speed in the Caribbean but this was at "stop" speed! Kitchen was great and had all of the necessary amenities. Beautiful place to unwind away from it all.…
We spent a week in a villa here overlooking the sea with our two teenage boys. Our two bedroom villa is very nice. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking, full size fridge, salt and pepper (thoughtful touches like new scouring pad and full dish soap). Lots of common areas for hanging out in the villa. There is a nearby grocery store (strongly suggest you rent a car - 5 min drive) along with several fruit stands within driving distance. So we were able to make breakfast and some lunch/dinners. And the view from our waterfront villa is gorgeous. Our large private terrace is equipped with hammock, bar stools, lounge seating with rocker, and lovely outdoor table. AC in rooms is excellent. Thoughtful touches like bug spray in welcome basket, milk in fridge, local coffee with French press, and ice in freezer. There is a lovely lawn right in front with lots of trees, perfect for playing ball or other games. There are quite a few biting mosquitoes so suggest long pants/shirts for night and your favorite big spray. It didn’t bother us since bedrooms have AC as well as mosquito netting. Wifi is excellent. Fresh deck of cards and some books in villa were also a nice touch. Nice soap and shampoo in bathrooms. While pretty to look at and refreshing for a swim, there isn’t much to do on the property. One of the kayaks had gone missing and one of the paddle board paddles was missing. The pool is clean but a bit small. So the touted free water sports were a bit more limited than expected. Still, we enjoyed quiet mornings here and late afternoons. The restaurant and general service was underwhelming with average, somewhat expensive food. We waited one night 1 hr and 20 min from ordering our entrees before we received them. When I went to ask when we might expect our food, a server started to lecture me that there were several large parties ahead of me. No apologies here. Fish tacos for 57EC were just ok. We had much better ones at Plywood on the BBC beach the day before with fresher fish for 22EC. We had a decent breakfast another day but again, food took 45 minutes to arrive and was a bit pricey. Generally service at this restaurant and the hotel in general comes with a dose of indifference. The women at the front desk are not unfriendly but you have to ask 20 questions to get an answer about anything. There is a very nice Canadian manager we met once. The restaurant/property could use a manager there all the time. There is only someone staffing the front desk from 8-6 and none on Sunday. In general, there is a bit of an Airbnb vibe to this place. You are a little on your own, which isn’t a terrible thing. It looks like there used to be a spa, a store, and another restaurant. So again, you get that slightly emptied out feeling here. Housekeeping service is every other day and housekeeper was super friendly, competent and kind. There are towels for beach use in the room- another nice touch. The area around the resort feels a little posh, with beautiful flowers on the way in and lovely houses. There’s not much to walk to, although we did venture down to the bridge and back a few times, about 2 mi round trip. The road isn’t too busy so even though no sidewalks it’s a little less terrifying than walking elsewhere in Grenada. The live music on Thursday on the lighthouse boat was nice, but the food menu was very limited and not of the quality of the restaurant. Basic pizza and burgers. Definitely eat before. We used this as a nice base for exploring during the day. We enjoyed Grande Anse Beach (Umbrellas), Morne Rouge beach (Plywood Bar), La Sagesse (nice restaurant for lunch- very reasonable, lovely beach with waves), and Belmont Chocolate factory tour (nice lunch). St. George is worth a look but didn’t blow us away. Driving is an adventure so we were nervous to drive at night. But after full days and exploring, we were pretty content to make drinks and simple dinners in our kitchen at night. Cabs are also possible. Definitely recommend if you are looking for a self catering experience with some service in a lovely setting. It took 20 min by car to get to Grande Anse, BBC beach, St. George, or La Sagesse. So centrally located if you have a car or don’t mind taxi service. …
