Lisette, the owner, and her team were excellent hosts. The room was comfortable. The food was excellent...my husband particularly enjoyed the dinner rolls. And the location is very quiet and relaxing. We definitely recommend you stay there when you go to Grenada.

I can't say enough good things about the Rumboat. Everyone who works there is super friendly and helpful, and always willing to help out, should you need anything. They took care of all of the details for having a car meet us at the airport and also for a sailing excursion. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is quiet...

We really loved the Rumboat Retreat! We were greeted in such a welcoming way by Lisette, who was the most gracious and helpful host I've met. Our accommodations were spacious, comfortable, and airy. The common areas, both inside and out, were welcoming and cosy and the view is just perfection. There are only four rooms but each night we were...

This was our second night on the island and it is a beautiful and relaxing place to stay. The views were fantastic, the beds comfortable and the staff so helpful and friendly. We could have stayed a few more nights here. The owner was great when asked what to do on the island.

I cannot say enough about our stay at the Rumboat Retreat. Lisette, the owner, greeted us warmly on our first day and was the most gracious host I have ever met. Everyone there was so kind and helpful. The food was delicious and we tasted different local fruits, veggies and fish as well as warm fresh baked rolls. Our rooms...

Very nice hotel lost in the countryside. The bedroom was very clean, the atmosphere is extremely calm. The breakfast is good. And the view from your cup of coffee is just the green leaves and the sea. And Mrs Davis is a very helpful host. If I come back for holidays in Grenada, I will not go elsewhere.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for five nights in October and had an amazing experience. We landed at the airport at around ten p.m. and as soon as we got out of customs grabbed our little 2-door Rav4 at Y&R there at the airport. That was quick and painless, even if customs was slow in getting people through. With...
