La Source in Grenada -- Escape From the World

 

How was the accommodation?

My home away from home was three flights up; at sunset that made the view from my veranda absolutely spectacular. White stucco walls and tiled floors showed off the dark four poster bed in my unit. The tub in the well-appointed bathroom was deep enough for a really good soak. Each room at LaSource has both air conditioning and ceiling fans and I enjoyed having the choice. There were no TV's or radios. This was management's choice for keeping the outside world at bay. It certainly worked for me.

 

How was the food?

The meals were divine. With four restaurants to choose from I tried to sample a bit from each one. Special mention goes to the fish and chips served at Oscars, the open air restaurant overlooking the water. They used red snapper in their recipe and it was the best I've ever tasted. The Indian lunch buffet at the indoor Garden Restaurant inspired me to go back for seconds. Afternoon Tea at the Deli Cafe was lovely, and my final dinner at the Great House was superb. I was treated to Seared King Scallops wrapped in parma ham with a light saffron sauce, followed by Herb and Parmesan Crusted Escalope of Veal. Dessert was Mango Crepes Jubilee. My wine glass was never empty for long and when I asked the server how she knew which wine I liked, she answered, 'I remembered what you chose yesterday.'

Is LaSource in Grenada solo and female-friendly? I rest my case, ladies!

Faces of Grenada...

Everywhere I travelled on the island I was greeted with the beautiful faces of the men, women and children of Grenada. Around every corner there was a radiant smile here, a wave from a local there. It was impossible to put my camera down. So I didn't. Click here to meet some of the folks I encountered.

 

Pack insect repellant...

As in most Caribbean islands you can expect mosquitos and other creepy crawlies during Grenada's rainy season. It's a good idea to be prepared by slipping some packets of insect repellant towelettes into your suitcase. We recommend towelettes because they are individual wrapped, easy to pack, and you avoid potential liquids spills. For safety reasons, aerosols that are combustible should not go into your luggage either.

 

Which airlines fly to Grenada?

A number of airlines provide service to Grenada from cities around the world. Point Salines International Airport receives most flights, but you may continue on to Carriacou aboard a ferry or in a smaller plane on a short flight to Lauriston Airport in Hillsborough. Travelers who wish to visit Petite Martinique must take a ferry to the island.
