St. George's to Grand Anse

My best friend and I had the privilege of spending seven gloriously relaxing days at the Siesta Hotel. We were returning to visit Grenada after 25 years and chose Siesta because of the great reviews we read about it’s close proximity to the beach, supermarkets, restaurants and transportation. We were not disappointed. The staff were always very courteous, friendly and helpful. The receptionist Crystal was very welcoming on our arrival. She escorted us to our room and ensured that we had everything we needed. The ladies from housekeeping were always prompt, polite and very helpful. We enjoyed our daily walks to Grand Anse beach. Siesta Hotel’s location is ideal. We had a breathtaking view of the ocean from our room and took full advantage of the balcony to relax and enjoy the view. The hotel is located close to the Spiceland Mall where there are souvenir shops, a food court, and supermarket. We even checked out the farmer’s market held on Wednesdays just a short 5 minutes stroll away. Siesta’s close proximity to everything you may need and their very budget-friendly prices make this the ideal place to stay when visiting Grenada. I’ll definitely be returning soon!!

Siesta Hotel Room

I have stayed in many places in Grenada and I am so excited to return to the first place I ever booked in St. George’s, Grenada…Siesta Hotel.
Arriving at the hotel was breathtaking. The entry decor is beautiful and the front desk staff are friendly and extremely accommodating. They have an area to park your car and a nice pool for swimming.
I met the love of my life in Grenada while staying at Siesta and we now live in America together and have a family. Siesta will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart.
My room was amazing, the bed was comfortable, and I had the BEST view ever!
You cannot find a better location. Just a few minutes walk to the beautiful Grand Anse Beach and very close to the shopping mall. The street the hotel is located on is quiet and peaceful.
After seven years we are finally returning to Grenada for Christmas and I look forward to staying at Siesta (where it all started).

Fresh Grenada spices in Curried Lentils with Yogurt and Eggs at Le Papillion. Fresh Grenada eggs make this French Creole treat!

Le Papillion: The photograph at the top features one of my current favourite dishes: Curried Lentils with Yoghurt and Eggs. This is a taste-treat to start any day! The spices in the lentils are, of course, the very best from the “Isle Of Spice”. Eggs in Grenada are always more flavourful than those we have at home! Sit in this lovely poolside terrace and you can sample some delightful French Creole Cuisine. The wooded hillside setting, in the Siesta Hotel grounds, looks out over the pretty Morne Rouge Road, St George’s. Beyond lies the mountains and rainforest of Grenada. This cafe is ideal for a tasty breakfast or lunch.

The French-influenced menu features the freshest of Grenadian ingredients. Grenada’s French agricultural history is reflected in the choices on the menu. The local fruit juices at Le Papillion are a delight. Here is a Mango Fruit Juice, which is thick, creamy, cooling and delicious! We loved Poached Eggs with Provision Hash (made with a variety of Grenadian root vegetables, peppers and Thyme – lots of fresh Grenadian thyme!). Another favourite is Le Papillion Croque Madam. This is a lovely sandwich filled with ham and lashings of cooked callaloo (a green leaf similar to spinach). This is all topped with melted cheese and finished off with a fried egg:-

Baguettes, sandwiches, crepes (various!) and quiche vie with omlettes, milkshakes and deserts for your attention. Add to this a fully-stocked bar to sample some Grenadian Rum Punch and a lunchtime could extend into the afternoon.
Opening times at Le Papillion are Wednesday – Sunday 7am – 2pm.

Gardens at Siesta

I recently stayed at the Siesta Hotel and was very pleased with everything. We were in the top room, so the view from the balcony was fantastic! The room was neat and amply furnished with everything we needed. There was plenty of room to spread out. The staff at the front desk was friendly and helpful. The pool was also beautiful and clean! We were particularly pleased with the location as the beach was a short walk away, and we were right on the bus route for St George’s University. We were visiting our daughter who is a student there, so this was particularly important to us. It was also a short walk to a small mall and grocery store. The store stayed open till 10 PM the night we arrived (Friday) which was really handy. The price was also very reasonable compared to resorts in the area!

Kitchen in Siesta

I spent a week at the hotel in October 2016. The Siesta is a fantastic hotel in a fantastic location. It is just a few minutes’ walk from the best beach in Grenada – Grand Anse. It is also close to the mall, bank, and the transportation hub to and from the capital.
It was better than I expected. The staff was excellent and kind. When I arrived at the hotel the front desk clerk was very welcoming and accommodating though I was too early for checking in. She assisted me in taking my luggage to the room although there was a handy man. The room was very spacious, clean and had all that I needed. In the kitchen area there is a microwave, refrigerator, stove, and utensils for preparing meals. Free Wi-Fi meant I could keep in contact with my loved ones and friends back home. The swimming pool was available around the clock and I made use of it. The view from my balcony was refreshing. I intend to spend another holiday in Grenada and I am already planning another booking at Siesta.
