From the moment our family arrived for our one week vacation, the Mt Cinnamon staff made our vacation memorable. The staff was warm and welcoming, always available to help, but not intrusive. The rooms were a wonderful surprise: colorfully decorated, very comfortable beds (including the queen-sized sofa bed), plenty of room for two adults and two pre-teens, excellent air conditioning, modern appliances, and breathtaking balcony views. Short walk to the beautiful beach along a flowering tree-lined path. Food at the beach cabana and the restaurant was excellent. Small, but well-equipped workout facility (with beautiful view), was an added bonus.

The hotel is undergoing some important renovations: they are redoing some of the rooms and are optimizing the beach space. Apparently, they are adding a bar and a SPA/wellness center as well. Despite the work in progress, the hotel was fantastic. Its restaurant was delicious and the staff incredibly helpful, welcoming, and polite. The infinity pool is worth the trip, as it guarantees stunning views. The location is just perfect, as the hotel oversees Mount Hartman Bay from an isthmus: you wake up to a great view every morning. The sea is only a few steps away as well, even though it's nothing special if compared to the rest of the island. The hotel provides great Taxi service (ask for Dave) to go about the island - my personal suggestion is to save some time everyday to spend at the hotel though.
We had such an enjoyable time at our last visit in 2012 that we came back in July 2014 and it was even better than we had remembered. Our (Westside) suite was spacious, well equipped and had lovely views. The suites are set well apart from each other across stunning gardens.

It is a very nice , well kept resort. The room is cleaned in the morning, and later in the evening they come by to exchange your wet beach towels with clean dry ones. A nice touch is that they don't hesitate to give you extra towels, some places I have stayed, they are very obsessive about giving you extra ones, not the case here. The food is top notch with lots of options, and if you do the all inclusive , be prepared to gain a lot of weight if you are the type that wants to get "the most out of it". I don't normally eat fish for a variety of reasons, but I decided to try a couple of dishes. Marlin and Swordfish, and I can't imagine how it could have been prepared better. At dinner, they are quick to refill your wine glass, but not pushy. No pressure to get out of the restaurants once you are finished eating and just chatting. Overall a very nice quiet hotel. If you are looking for a lively party place , then this isn't your place, although there are nearby places to go if that suits you.
Maca Bana is a wonderful boutique resort. They are about 8 minutes from the airport and yet you do not hear airplanes constantly flying over you. If you are looking for warm weather, a white sandy beach, a breath-taking view and solitude, then Maca Bana is for you. If you enjoy snorkeling, then Magazine beach is the place you want to be. Our stay was quite enjoyable. The staff is warm and friendly and if you need anything, all you need to do is ask. The onsite restaurant, The Aquarium, is situated right off Magazine beach, so you can dine and enjoy the lovely ambiance as you listen to the ocean waves.
They do not have a gym at t he moment (however, one will be available in the not so distant future). Nor do they have a spa or a large pool. There is a bit of a climb from the base of the property to the villas; that alone can be a daily workout. A walk on the beach or a swim in the ocean can add to your daily workout. If you feel like you are in the mood for spa services, all you need to do is ask and they will be happy to have someone come to you. The pool they have is small to medium sized, however clean and serene.
The beachfront location is superb. The villas are excellent, and very private.
The staff not only provide outstanding service, but are some of the friendliest hotel staff that I have ever encountered !
"We went to the Bel Air Plantation on our Honeymoon. I must say that it exceeded our expectations."
My wife and I were looking for a honeymoon that allowed us to be away from touristy areas, enjoy the natural beauty of the raw local Caribbean and still be close enough to drive to nightlife and great restaurants. Well, Bel Air Plantation in Grenada was amazing. The resort is less of a resort and more of your own private home on a breathtaking hillside looking over the bay. The restaurant on the premises was fantastic (I recommend the Calaloo soup and vegetarian peas). The room was immaculate, beautiful and the bed and linens were the most comfortable I have ever felt. They also have a beautiful pool with a breathtaking view of the bay as you swim. We rented a car to get us into St. George and to many amazing local beaches. You must be confident with driving on the left and on narrow, winding roads. If you don't plan on renting a car, the resort can help you find a taxi service and recommend places for you to go.
