Respond to Review of The Lodge
Review: We just returned from 10 days in paradise, aka The Lodge in Grenada. I will start by saying that all of the rave reviews on Happy Cow and elsewhere are 100% true! The Lodge itself is beautiful and comfortable, with breathtaking views at every turn. For those who like to exercise (or just splash around), the rainwater lap pool is a special treat. The atmosphere at The Lodge is conducive to total relaxation and great sleeping. We must have slept at least nine hours every night. And the food is absolutely delightful! Not only is it delicious, healthy and plentiful, it is presented artfully. I found myself taking photos of every course - it was that beautiful! Mark and Matthew are gracious hosts who looked after us perfectly, including driving us to our favorite beach (BBC/Mourne Rouge) on Sunday when the buses weren't running. And, like others have noted, Mark’s orientation tour on the first day was extremely helpful for getting our bearings and finding vegan lunch options. Taking the local buses turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. It’s an experience like no other! We are grateful to Mark for arranging a wonderful afternoon snorkeling trip on a catamaran, which included the underwater sculptures and another beautiful bay. He also set up excursions with the legendary Talfour (a walking trip outside of Grenville, which ended up at Belmont Estate for lunch) and a day trip around the island with Mandoo, which included a second lunch at Belmont, with delicious vegan options. We loaded up on Grenada Chocolate Factory chocolate bars in the shop at Belmont. Other great gifts to take home are spices of course! I suggest you run -- don’t walk -- to make your reservation at The Lodge. You will be so glad that you did!
