Gem Holiday Beach Resort <> This is my second time? Actually the third if you count spending a cruise day there... The Gem!!!! Some reviews say it is the prettiest place to stay in Grenada when costs and amentities are compared. Okay!!! It's not the Hilton! Adequate furniture, not fancy, rattan et al. But the ambiance is cool! Julia, the manager? Is very friendly and knowlegeable. House keeping is great!!! Lizards on the outside walls, and stray cats on the patio. Fabulous views of Grand Mourne Bay, Reef to snorkle out to ( bring your own boogie board). Big fishies to see with your own mask!!! Um? No one is on the beach except you and your sweetie!!! Its an apartment Hotel? So low key. Kitched there, bring yer own coffe, taxi or walk a mile in to town to get groceries. Dinners in Grenada are 25$ to $35? So do your own cooking in a kitchen equipped with wood matches and Magnalite. Scrambled eggs with freshly grated nutmeg are wonderful!!!! In all my Travels? I keep going back to THE GEM!!! Friendly? Ambiance? Fresh Tuna fish Roti? Dont tell anyone!!! But this place is great!!! Amazing thing? On Grande Mourne Bay. Can climb over the hill to Grande Anse Beach. NO ONE is on the beach!!! Honey moon? Let Julia know!!! Such peace, freedom, and privacy!!! Have stayed at the best suites with hot tubs et al? This place doesnt even have a swim pool? Who needs it!!! One year? I brought my boogie board and dived down for sea urchins, My friend scrambled them for me the next morn at the Floating Bar ( alas, died in the hurricane). I keep going back? Only place in the Caribbean that I have been to? That gives me a BEACH, HUGE beach to myself!!! Dont tell anyone about THE GEM. Its only 85 to 199$ a noc, with a kitchen!!!
