My husband and I recently celebrated our 6th Anniversary at Sandals LaSource Grenada. We have previously stayed at Sandals Montego Bay in Jamaica, Sandals Emerald Bay in Exuma, Bahamas, and Sandals Grande Antigua. We have always chosen a butler room at all resorts. For this trip, we stayed in the South Seas Grande Rondoval Butler Suite with Private Pool Sanctuary - RD Category (Room 4109 - See attached pictures).
PROS: Food, Resort Layout, Beach, Rooms, Diving
CONS: We had to leave too soon! And there aren't any butler rooms on the beach.
ROOMS: There are so many great room categories at this resort, and many have their own private or shared pools. Our only complaint is that we usually like to have a room on the beach, but at this resort there aren't any butler rooms on the beach. This actually turned out to be a positive thing, as we LOVED our rondoval with private pool. We originally booked the South Seas One Bedroom Butler Villa with Infinity Edge Pool - M1P, but we were upgraded to the South Seas Grande Rondoval Butler Suite with Private Pool Sanctuary - RD at check-in. Boy, what an upgrade that was! It is always recommended to book the room that you would be happy in (and we would have been happy with the M1P), but we will definitely re-book the rondovals when we return! In addition to your own pool, you have your own hot tub that we took full advantage of at night. The bathroom in the rondoval is huge, with a large stone tub, separate shower, and 2 sink areas!
STAFF: With staff, I always have to give it up to our butlers first! Crystal and Kirt were an amazing butler team! On our anniversary, Crystal planned a special lunch prepared by the chef just for us! None of our butlers had ever done anything like this before! I truly believe Grenada has some of the best butlers of all the sandals! Steven and Carolin from the entertainment staff were also great. From the moment that Steven introduced himself, he remembered our names and would always try to get us involved in the pool games. We had so much fun playing pool volleyball with him and Carolin. Also, Hezron is one of the best bartenders at the South Seas pool. We had fun coming up with new drink combinations with him!
BEACH/POOL: The pools are great here - not too big or too small, but the beach is gorgeous! You can see the port across the way from the resort. It is absolutely beautiful here!
RESTAURANTS: We could not get enough of the food here. With each new resort, Sandals keeps improving the options! Our favorites were definitely Le Jardinier and Butch's Chophouse. We went to each of those twice. We also met another couple that went to Le Jardinier 3 or 4 times - it is that good! Butch's was the first steakhouse in the Sandals chain. The Oreo Crusted Marshmellow Cheesecake was so good! The lamb shank at Le Jardinier is another don't miss, along with the french onion soup. The only restaurants we chose to skip for dinner were Kimono's, Neptune's, and Spices. Breakfast we usually had brought to our room by our butlers, and the same with lunch - although sometimes we went to Spices for the buffet because it was so quick. Oh! Also, don't miss the adult milkshake at Cafe de Paris.
DIVING: The diving in Grenada was the best I've seen so far at all of the resorts. There was so much reef activity, and I saw a sea turtle for the first time!
Overall, Grenada is the top choice for us right now. It's probably the only resort we agree on being the best! This may be the first Sandals that we actually return to, but for now, we are booked to try new resorts in Jamaica and St. Lucia next!
