Really enjoyed this hotel! The staff is friendly and attentive and really goes the extra mile for you. There are two small but nice pools on the middle of the hotel that are a nice way to relax during the heat of the day. Free breakfast included every morning, and a great location next to the main park and cathedral....

If I compare the other hotels in the city this one is one of the best. The warm atmosphere good service and a large nice rooms with the windows aircondition and the view to the patio is the base. As a favor thehotel is just a few meter from the main square and the main street with many restaurants.

The Colonial is slap-bang in the middle of the buzzy colonial city of Grenada. While it lacks a nice frontage with veranda and chairs, like the Alhambra opposite, it concentrates instead on three smart interior courtyards. These are immensely attractive, festooned with both original art and bougainvillea, and two of the courtyards have small swimming pools, a blessed relief in...

This hotel is in a great location just off the main square and is a really pretty hotel set around courtyards with 2 small swimming pools.

The hotel has a wonderful location, and the staff is very friendly and understand and speak English. I was very pleasantly surprised that they had both BBC World and CNN among the TV channels.
