Bottom Line

Mount Cinnamon, an upscale boutique hotel tucked away on a hillside perched over Grand Anse beach, features spacious villas and suites with colorful, contemporary decor. The self-catering rooms offer full kitchens and great views, but guests should be ready for a steep walk down to the beach. The resort's excellent beach cabana area is its stand-out feature, providing a relaxed oasis with comfortable loungers and daybeds, a bar and cafe, and games in a lovely garden.

Scene

Featuring bold pops of color against whitewashed walls, this upscale boutique resort is relaxed, charming and friendly

Shortly up the hill, on a bumpy road that curves up past the end of Grand Anse beach, sits a stone archway and a white stucco building with a terra-cotta roof that slightly resembles a small castle – or at least, a breezy Caribbean castle. This is Mount Cinnamon Grenada, an upscale resort featuring 22 self-contained villas and hacienda suites set over a tropical hillside, and a path leading down to gardens and a beach cabana below. Through the archway, the vibrant lobby features memorable bold pops of color – bright blues, greens, yellows – against a white backdrop, and a smiling staff waits in the wings.

Mount Cinnamon is one of the older hotels on the small, charming island of Grenada – but its age is only evident in its relaxed, polite temperament – as the rooms and buildings are all updated with nice, contemporary furnishings. Despite being spread out over a large property, the hotel feels small and intimate. The atmosphere is pleasant, breezy and serene, and caters equally well to larger groups, families, couples, or friends with its spacious one- and two-bedroom villas.

Location

On a hillside perched over the famed Grand Anse beach, in the southwest corner of the island

Mount Cinnamon is one of several in a cluster of resorts that utilize the fabulous Grand Anse beach. This two-mile stretch of pristine white sand is one of the largest and most scenic beaches on Grenada – and for that reason, it’s the most popular and often busy. Mount Cinnamon sits on the quieter end of the beach, however, with calm turquoise waters. The resort is on the side of a hill perched above the beach, with the customary steep walk down. It’s located in the bustling southwest corner of the island, about a 15-minute drive from the quaint, pastel-hued capital of St. George’s. It’s just a 10-minute drive to the airport.

Rooms

Colorful, apartment-style suites have full kitchens and an upscale, funky vibe

Mount Cinnamon features 22 contemporary rooms, including 15 stand-alone villas and seven hacienda suites. Each room is apartment-style, with either one, two or three bedrooms, a comfortable living room, a full kitchen, and a spacious veranda or deck. The beautiful, bright apartments are full of color, in bold stripes and floral patterns, and tropical-themed modern decor with an upscale, funky vibe.

Airy, open living rooms include flat-screen TVs and Bose surround-sound systems. They open out onto private verandas with nice seating areas and sweeping views of the sea and up the coast to St. George’s in the distance. A big World Atlas book sits on every coffee table, to help further stoke travelers' wanderlust. Pullout sofa beds provide room for extra guests.

Bedrooms have big, comfortable beds with fresh, cute bedding and generous closet space. The well-stocked kitchens come complete with ovens, stoves, coffeemakers, microwaves, toasters, and stylish, vintage-inspired lime green refrigerators. The brightly painted bathrooms have large walk-in shower areas (but no bathtubs), and every room comes with a washer and dryer

Features

The contemporary Savvy's Restaurant and bar surround a not-so-private pool

In the main hotel building, the open-air Savvy’s Restaurant continues in the vibrant style of the lobby and rooms, with brightly colored orange and green accents and comfortable seating. Live music is provided a few nights a week to accompany the contemporary dining. The nicely lit bar is adjacent to the restaurant, serving up cocktails well into the evening. Savvy's serves breakfast and dinner, which lunch can be enjoyed down at the beach cabana's casual cafe. Breakfast and half-board meal plans are available.

A small, deep pool sits in the center of the main building lined by a handful of shaded loungers, surrounded by the lobby, bar and restaurant. While it is quite picturesque, creating a nice setting for the restaurant, it’s not very private, as the lobby and bar areas look in onto the pool area.  If it’s solstice you’re looking for, you’d be better off heading down to the beach. The small spa has two parts – there is a room at the main hotel for indoor treatments, or guests can opt for massages on the beach in a little hut next to the beach cabana. A small fitness center and tennis courts are also available, but most of the action is down at the beach. Free Wi-Fi is available around the property.

Beach

The beach cabana is an oasis of cool on the popular, scenic Grand Anse beach, with games and water sports available

Set on the side of a steep hill overlooking Grand Anse beach, the rooms at Mount Cinnamon are located a more than five-minute walk down to the beach club area. Guests must follow a set of stairs and then a long path through a nice grassy field to reach the beach cabana – an oasis of cool tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Grand Anse. It’s a hike to get back up to your room, but the hotel can provide transport on a golf cart if you need a lift. 

Mount Cinnamon’s beach cabana area is its stand-out feature – offering some of the hippest amenities on Grand Anse with a fun, club-like feeling to it. The cabana, featuring a warmly decorated tent with palm trees painted on the ceiling, plays pleasant island music. Comfortable seating can be found inside the tent and out on the sand, and several games are available to guests. The bar serves cocktails beachside, as well as casual lunch, with options such fish tacos or a pulled pork sandwich.

Shuffleboard, croquet, volleyball, ping-pong and an oversized chess board are among the activities available at the beach club and garden area, giving guests plenty to do, if they happen to get bored of lounging on a padded lounge chair in the sun or in shade of a covered day bed on the beach. Water sports, including sailing and kayaks, are also available. Grand Anse is one of the most striking and popular beaches on Grenada, known for its long stretch of white sand and calm waters. Mount Cinnamon is situated at the quieter side of the beach, though there is still a lot of foot traffic and the occasional vendor.
