Sandals Grenada Review
The resort is made up of four villages with a vast range of room categories and configurations that you can choose before arriving at the resort.
- Pink Gin Village, which is where the original La Source Grenada resort existed, has the most direct access and proximity to the beach. As well as the most peaceful above-ground-level rooms, mostly with scenic water views.
- South Seas Village has close proximity to the pool bar, this is the most vibrant village in the all-inclusive resort. This is where you’ll find the incredible Rondovals and “Millionaire” suites, with top of the line living areas. As well as a bar and dining area that opens up to the luscious soaking tub on the exterior dining area.
- Italian Village is the latest addition to the resort and is in between Pink Gin village and South Seas Village. It’s another new segment of the resort and offers the most opulent accommodation. With Skypool suites that feature infinity-edge plunge pools and idyllic views of the ocean, with soaking tubs in all rooms and suites.
- Lover’s Hideaway Village stands in a secluded part of the property with romantic views over the resorts freshwater lagoon creating the perfect setting for the utmost privacy and romance!

We stayed in the Italian Oceanview 1 Bedroom SkyPool Butler Suite with a Balcony Tranquility Soaking Tub. This room category is located on the third, fourth and fifth floors of the Italian Village. These rooms are the ultimate oversized Love Nest Butler Suites. Everything in these rooms screams romance. The most spectacular feature is the king-size bed that has direct access to our own private, solar-heated plunge pool with an infinity edge. This is where we came back to relax and take in the stunning view while literally floating in the sky.
This suite has all the amenities of home and then some. The room has a butler pantry with a fully stocked wet bar with premium liquors. A large living room with a dining room table, writing desk, sofas, and smart television. The living room leads to the balcony that features a Tranquility Soaking tub for two. You can have complete privacy by pulling the privacy curtains closed that surround the entire balcony.
Your jaw will drop when you see the exquisite details of the large washroom. It has Carrera marble vanities, a large Kohler claw-footed tub that is surrounded by a frosted-glass shower and an enclosed toilet. The floor is made of Turkish ivory patika travertine natural stone. You never have to leave your room with the Butler Elite and 24-hour room service included.
Dining at Sandals Grenada
Sandals Grenada has 10 restaurants to choose from, offering you a culinary experience like no other. Savor an epicurean adventure that’ll take you on an international journey of taste sensation meeting your every craving. Choose from cuisine from Rome, France, Caribbean, or Italian meals with the settings of casual or fine dining. Sandals Grenada boasts venues that offer the cuisine and ambiance to suit any mood or culinary desire.
There are so many dining selections that you will never eat the same meal twice unless you want to. We found ourselves returning to Soy Sushi Bar for the sushi and the Paris Cafe for our afternoon coffee, pastries, and the must-try cinnamon ice cream. I wish we had time to try them all.
If you love steak then make sure to make a reservation at Butch’s Steakhouse. Butch’s Steakhouse is Sandals first steakhouse. I enjoyed a surf and turf that was grilled to perfection. The restaurant has plush furnishings, wood finishes, and intimate mood lighting that makes for the perfect ambiance.
Soy Sushi Bar
Who knew you could enjoy top-notch sushi in the Caribbean. We found ourselves returning here several times. My husband has never been a sushi fan but he loved it so much that we returned several times.
Sandals Grenada Pools
The resort has 5 pools to choose from. The largest pool is in the South Seas Village with a swim-up bar and in-pool volleyball area, as well as daybeds and Grecian-style columns. This pool is often the center of all the action, with dance music, games and activities on most days.
The Pink Gin Village has a smaller, V-shaped pool facing the beach suited to a quieter and more laid-back atmosphere. You’ll find a medium whirlpool close-by with plenty of shaded lounge chairs.
The resort also has 2 waterfall river pools intended on looking like a flowing river with long tiers, while the pool at the Italian Village has a number of swim-out rooms directly facing the pool. The final pool is a small and serene pool at the furthest part of the South Seas village that is lined by swim-up rooms.
Review of the Sandals Beach
Grenada is known for its remarkable natural beauty and pristine beaches with impossibly blue seas. The beachfront area is relatively small and only has designated swimming areas. Sandals resort beach might be small but it is beautiful with the dramatic cliffs in the background. The enclosed cove makes it calm for swimming.
Included Activities at the Sandals Resort
When you’ve had enough of lying by the pool or soaking up relaxation in the tubs, the resort also offers many complimentary activities. These include kayaking, scuba diving, tennis, and other activities at the beach club.
The all-inclusive rates also cover fitness classes like yoga, Zumba, and water aerobics. As well as complimentary use of non-motorized water sports equipment and tennis and sand volleyball court equipment.
Red Lane Spa
The spa is also highly rated with friendly staff and top-class treatments. I was lucky to get pampered at the Red Lane Spa with the tropical glow facial. My face was literally glowing after my treatment. Experience an illuminating treatment designed to instantly brighten and smooth collagen depleted skin. Using an enzyme exfoliation, followed by a powerful blend of antioxidant vitamins and peptides, your skin will look firmer, brighter and replenished.
Grenada Sunset Cruise With Island Routes
Your trip to Sandals Resort is not complete until you have experienced the Lover’s Rock Sunset cruise in Grenada with Island Routes. We sailed on a 60-foot motorized catamaran to witness the most magnificent sunset as the sun sunk into the sea. On our sunset cruise the sunset was pink and orange, the most mesmerizing sunset I have seen.
Snacks and cocktails are served throughout the sail as well as champagne for the sunset.
Tip: leave your high heels at the resort as no shoes are worn on board. You will need to remove them before getting on the catamaran.
Conclusion on Sandals Grenada Resort
Sandals Grenada defies almost every convention of traditional design, and this new resort takes innovation beyond the realm of imagination. They have combined all the essential elements in order to create one of the best Sandals resorts, unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
This exotic island with intoxicating scents of spices and tropical blooms could easily be one of the best all-inclusive resorts and creates the perfect elixir for romance and relaxation. They’ve gone beyond the expected to provide the most luxurious and sophisticated resort in the Caribbean.
Are you looking for an exotic vacation for adults only, where everything is included in your stay and you can completely relax and enjoy the scenery and activities at the resort?
