Grenada offers many types of accommodations, from charming guest houses and inns to luxurious mega-resorts and large hotels. In fact, "Spice Island" has some of the most beautiful and diverse lodging options in the Caribbean, so finding accommodations that meet your ideals should be a breeze.

As you look through your lodging options, remember that if you choose to stay at a hotel or resort, be prepared to pay an 8 percent government tax on all rooms as well as a 10 percent service charge. Also, travel during the high season is costly, and accommodations are expensive. But rooms are reduced up to 30 percent if you travel to Grenada in the off season.

Location

In the general vicinity of the capital city of St. George vacationers will find a large variety of lodging offerings – particularly on the Southern edige of the city and beyond. You'll find everything from budget motels to luxury resorts in this general area. Wave Crest Holiday Apartments and Petite Bacaye Villa Hotel are two options in this area. Many travelers like to stay near the city, in order to be near the many landmarks and attractions, as well as the island's most beautiful beaches.

Perhaps the most popular place for accommodations on the entire island is the area stretched along and beyond Grand Anse beach, which is just south of the capital city. The beaches are the big draw, but it also features a good selection of restaurants, watering holes, and other attractions. 

There are other choices for guests who are looking for a bit more seclusion and autonomy. L'Anse aux Epines to the south, Sauteurs to the north, and Gouyave along the mid-western coast all offer a smattering of hotels and rental properties.

Personal Considerations

Choosing your accommodations on Grenada is about more than your personal desires. Instead, vacation planners have to consider a range of factors that will benefit them and those they are traveling with.

Party Size

The number of people, and the type of group you are traveling with will affect the choice you make regarding where you stay. Couples planning a romantic getaway will choose a resort such as Jameson Inn, which is known for its intimate, romantic atmosphere, over Rex Grenadian, which is a family-friendly establishment perfect for guests traveling with children.

Finding lodgings nearest the attractions and activities you are interested in is ideal. Some hotels even have packaged that cater to the things you are interested in, such a divingfishing, spas, and nature. The Flamboyant Hotel & Villas, for example, works closely with Dive Grenada to create the ultimate dive vacation.

Length of Stay

Most people travel to Grenada for a weekend or even a week of tropical scenery. These vacationers will be perfectly fine staying in your typical hotel or all-inclusive resort. For guests planning a longer stay, a rental property will be best. Often these come with kitchens that allow guests to plan and cook their own meals, and separate bedrooms so the accommodations will feel more like home.
