Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My Husband and I had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Seaclusion Suites! The only thing we would change was to stay there longer. Bob and Marie are informative and helpful and very respectful of your space (even though it's their space). Marie's food is delicious and fresh if you want a meal and the kitchen space is well stocked if you want to cook for yourself. The view is unbelievable, and the walk to the beach is perfect. I hope we find ourselves back sooner rather than latter!

Just wonderful! This was our fifth stay at Seaclusion Suites and this time we were able to share it with my sister by booking both suites. Carriacou is a hidden gem of the Caribbean and Seaclusion Suites is perfectly located for you to enjoy all of it.

We love the water and with three beaches within walking distance you are only minutes away from a cool dip or a snorkeling adventure. The view from your private deck is amazing. The sailboats passing Sandy Island of day is replaced by a sky full of stars once the sun sets.

Marie is always willing to share ideas for how to cook up what island specialties you’ve brought back from the market and Bob is full of stories and local information. They are excellent resources for planning activities around the island. We can’t wait to go back for our next stay.

We love vacationing at Seaclusion Suites. Our trip in February 2020 was our 10th stay. We discovered Seaclusion over 10 years ago and have been returning ever since. Marie and Bob are wonderful hosts. They are very attentive to our needs. The suites are very comfortable and clean.
There are 3 beaches within walking distance; our favorite is black sand beach. Snorkeling from the beaches is very good.
We really enjoy the view that we have from our suite. Very calming and relaxing. We are quite happy to stay put on our deck and just watch the sail boats come and go to Sandy Island. We never get tired of the view.
We self cater, so we appreciate that there are several choices for shopping. There is even an American-style supermarket nearby. Rental cars are available, but we prefer using public transport which can be accessed by a 15 -20 minute walk.
Looking forward to our next visit.

This is a factual review with some positives and some negatives. Our hosts Bob and Marie were very pleasant and accommodating. The studio apartment had sufficient space and was very clean. Our suite contained two very small refrigerators but lacked a micro wave and a toaster. While we understand and have visited many eco friendly accommodations this was taken to the extreme. There is no hot water, which means cold showers. Toilet procedures were extreme. The sign above the toilet says it all "In the land of sun and fun, we don't flush for number one". My wife was instructed to save used toilet tissue in a small trash container. The patio with four chairs and a small dining table, afforded magnificent views. The property was very private and quiet. The access to the beach was very challenging, it is a very steep walk downhill to the beach, conversely it is a steep walk uphill to return to the apartment. 71 steps to the beach are difficult to maneuver without tripping. White and black sand beaches are nice but require a bit of a hike. The beach along the bay is hardly wide enough to sit on, no beach chairs. The walk to the bus stop is NOT 5 minutes as stated in an earlier review. It took us on average 25 minutes, up and down rather steep hills. We were forced to leave early and spend the rest of our vacation in a more suitable accommodation, with hot water, civilized toilet procedures and much easier and safer access to the beach, with beach chairs.

This was a big holiday for us, we were leaving our young children at home and we wanted something special, somewhere we could relax and just enjoy being together. We searched the internet for the perfect place and disregarded lots before finding Seaclusion Suites in Carriacou. It looked perfect, it was secluded yet close to numerous beaches and only a 10 - 15 minute walk to the nearest village. After reading lots of information about Carriacou we booked our trip.

We stayed at Seaclusion from 1st to 9th March 2006 and had a fantastic time. We flew into Grenada and stayed overnight at the Fox Inn. We got the 9am Osprey ferry to Carriacou on 1st March. The ferry crossing was a little bumpier than expected but it was fine. Unloading at Carriacou was a nightmare as the ferry doesn't tie up tight at the dock. A man in a wheelchair was manhandled onto the dock and came close to being dropped into the sea!

Anyway, we were met by Bob from Seaclusion in his 4x4. Bob and Marie own Seaclusion, in fact they've built the entire thing and it certainly is a credit to them. Seaclusion is wholly run on solar power so if you HAVE to have hot showers and hairdryers then it probably isn't the place for you. It's about a 10 or 15 minute walk over rough ground (not suitable for anyone not steady on their feet) from L'Esterre which is a small village with a lovely bakery and a few little shops. It's about a 15 - 20 minute drive into Hillsborough (the capital of Carriacou). By the way when I say "capital" you shouldn't think of a big place, it's basically a few streets and a few food and gift shops and a little museum. You could probably wander around for an hour or two but you wouldn't need any more time than that to cover the whole place!

Carriacou has miles of stunning beaches which most of the time you have entirely to yourself - well we did anyway! The main beach is Paradise beach which had about 15 people on it when we went there. We didn't see a bad beach, each was stunning with Turtle beach being perhaps the most photogenic.

Anyway back to Seaclusion:
Seaclusion has two suites, both with a double bed, kitchen and bathroom and an outside patio. The owners live above you. The views from Seaclusion are stunning, totally stunning. You can practically see from one end of the island to the other and Mabouya Island and Sandy Island are right in front of you. Seaclusion is perfectly located for the cooling breezes which is great when it's really hot. After a walk into L'Esterre and back you can feel pretty hot and muggy, but as you turn to walk down to Seaclusion that wonderful cool wind is waiting for you and within seconds you feel pretty great again. It's like it blows only on Seaclusion and is there purely to keep you cool. Who needs air conditioning when you have the natural version like this?!

The walk to the beach is down a pathway through the trees. It's not too steep and it's a pleasant walk - takes 5 minutes maximum. The beach is very long and beautiful. Bob keeps the part of the beach near their pathway clear but the hurricane did make a bit of a mess of the mangroves further along and you do have to wade into the sea to get round them (not even knee deep so easy to pass). You can easily walk to Black Beach and White Beach too. In fact you can also walk right around to Paradise Beach. Black beach and white beach are only a short walk away and are adjacent coves. Black beach has black sand and white beach has white sand - it's quite strange to walk from one to the other. There is a British cannon at black beach - it's just lying on the sand. Bizarre.

We decided to eat at Seaclusion almost every night and this was fantastic. Marie is a great cook and has a good range of lovely dishes. We chose to have a surprise each night and left it up to Marie to decide what we'd eat - we weren't disappointed. The only problem was that I couldn't eat it all! We only went for 3 courses and even that was a struggle for me - there is no way I could have eaten 4 courses. Each night our table was set up on the patio and we ate dinner under the stars. It really can't be beaten!

Bob and Marie are great hosts, they leave you alone so you can enjoy the peace and quiet but they are there if you need them. They took us into town to get some food and they took us to the Lambi Queen to listen to Enil (sp?) on his steel drums. They also took us on an island tour which was great - they are very knowledgeable and probably know more about the island that a lot of people. They even arranged for a local guy (Alan) to take us over to White Island for the day. We had the island to ourselves for an hour or so before another couple arrived and we had to share! It's a lovely island but you need to take everything with you as there is nothing there except, sand, mangroves, water and rocks. The boat ride over was good fun too but take Bob and Marie's advice and take cushions to sit on as it can get bumpy....

Seaclusion wouldn't suit everybody as it's a little out of the way and it is quiet. However if you want to relax and just chill out then it's the perfect place. We came back feeling totally recharged and I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Also if you are a nature lover then Seaclusion is the place for you. There are lots of birds in the beautiful gardens but you can also see all manner of birds (Frigate, Brown boobies, Pelicans, Osprey etc.) diving into the sea for fish. You can see them from your room (binoculars are provided) but it's even better to watch from the beach. We got some great photos of the pelicans diving in formation. Bob and Marie also have tortoises, iguana and snakes (harmless ones) there too.

The trip back to Grenada was by plane. It was early so we landed in Grenada at the time we should have left Carriacou. Flying back gives you the opportunity for aerial photos of the islands, yet another gorgeous photo to show the relatives and make them jealous.

So, would I recommend it??? No I wouldn't - but only because I don't want you all going there!!!!!!!!!!! ha ha ha. Seriously, of course I would recommend it, it's a beautiful place in a fantastic location with stunning views, great hosts, good food and beaches all to yourself. What more could you want?!

I reserved (and paid a deposit for) 3 nights in early December 2010. Two months before my scheduled arrival, I emailed the owner asking some questions prompted by an earlier TA review. Specifically, I asked if the 2010 drought had broken, and whether the previous reviewer's comments about 'surprise' service charges was indicative of what I should expect. I was, to say the least, very surprised when, after no more than the exchange of a few polite emails over several days, the owner asked me not to come and refunded my deposit. While the owner presumably has the right to refuse service to anyone he chooses, and his unwelcoming behavior in this instance may have no bearing on how he treats actual guests, I thought my unhappy experience was worth sharing with those contemplating a visit to Carriacou.

We are just back from a fabulous 10 days in Grenada and Carriacou, 7 of which we spent at the Seaclusion Suites in Lesterre, Carriacou. The suites are is run by Bob & Marie, who have lived on C-cou for a long time, and who built the place themselves (they live upstairs). The suites are unique in that they are off the grid. Access is via a rough dirt track, about a 10 minute walk from the paved road where you can easily catch a bus to Hillsborough town for about $1 US per person.

We found the place to be spotless and really well built with lots of attention to detail and really nice decor. Marie is an excellent artist--don't miss the bird mural in one of the suites. She will cook for you, or you can pick things up in town and do it yourself. They also do an awesome island tour that goes to places the regular bus/taxi tours never visit. And they will arrange boat rides, dive trips, etc. Bob is a wealth of knowledge about the island, history, flora & fauna, etc. Or, if you want peace and quiet, they will leave you totally alone--it's up to you!

Keep in mind that off the grid means no TV, no microwave oven, no hairdryer (not that you'd need one!). If you plan to bring anything that needs to be plugged in, check with Bob & Marie first. There are electric lights, a gas stove and gas fridge (small), and the kitchen setup is efficient for cooking. A good assortment of pots, pans and utensils is provided. We brought our own press pot for making coffee, which is how we prefer it (strong!). Each suite has a terrace and ocean views--we spent lots of time on ours watching various cruising yachts come and go. Good birding too.

Food is not cheap in Carriacou, but it's not ridiculous either, and shopping in the "main" town of Hillsborough is a bit of an adventure. We recommend you start at one end of main street and go in every store to see what they have. It's amazing that while they carry lots of the same things, each place seems to have something you didn't see anywhere else. Produce is best at the greengrocers at the end of town toward the airport OR at the little stand outside of town at the other end. (Town is not big--it's an easy walk from one end to the other.) Also there are vendors along the street selling this and that.

Tip: going out to dinner is pretty much a waste of money. The meal we had at Callaloo by the Sea was decent, the meal we had at the Silver Beach Hotel was quite awful (old fish, filthy bathroom). Lunches, on the other hand, were cheap and delicious--options include stewed lambi (conch), chicken, and fish, or roti, all served with "provisions" (vegetables and a starch). There are several little lunch spots along main street in Hillsborough--look for chalk board signs listing what's on for the day. Beer is plentiful, rum even more so.

We heard some excellent steel drum music one evening in Tyrell Bay (the town closest to Seaclusion), but night life is not what this island is all about.

From Seaclusion there is easy access via a path down the hill on the property to a good white sand beach with easy swimming (no big waves while we were there) and snorkeling off the beach. The beach rarely has anyone on it. It's also a short hike from Seaclusion down to a black sand beach and another white sand beach. Again, we had both to ourselves.

In summary, a great place if you are a little bit adventurous and want to really get away. NOT recommended if you need to be connected 24/7 and are looking for night life and entertainment.

This will be the one exception to our rule of always trying something new.

Absolutely fantastic, pictures cannot do this place justice. Carriacou feels like a true Carribean getaway experience and you wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.

Seaclusion Suites is exactly what the name would suggest. Beautiful views of Sandy Island, Union Island and the further away Grenadines. Bob & Marie are eager hosts and do everything possible to make your stay enjoyable. My husband I enjoy traveling off the beaten path and Carriacou is a great place to visit if you like this type of travel. This trip was our belated honeymoon and we wanted something a little more special.

The suite was lovely and extremely clean. We had our own spacious veranda and the suite itself is quite comfortable. It's a few minutes walk to a few different beaches. On the downside, there’s no hot water and the rooms can get a bit stuffy at night with no AC and an unpredictable breeze. (We asked for an additional fan on our last night and that really helped).

There are a few details, however, that we wished we had known ahead of time. First, the island of Carriacou is in the middle of a severe 9-month drought. Because Seaclusion Suites is up on a secluded hillside, the only water available is collected rain water. The property is dangerously short on water and severe steps are taken to conserve. The accommodations felt very much like living on a boat because of this shortage. We were asked to only take one shower a day and to actually take a “dry” shower (turning water off while soaping up). We were extra careful not to waste water washing hands, brushing teeth or even flushing when not absolutely essential. We were also asked to avoid using electricity (such as a hair dryer) due to their solar power status.

Upon arrival, Bob & Marie offered to refund our money in full if we were not comfortable with the water arrangements. However, we had flown over 12 hours to get there and didn’t have other arrangements for a place to stay (obviously). I did wish that they would have been more up-front via email ahead of our trip. I must say, it was a little alarming upon arrival to have your hosts welcome you with a list of rules, even if they are offering a refund. I would have stayed with them anyway, I just would prefer a more up-front approach.

Seclusion Suites are quite far off the beaten path. Be prepared for a bit of a hike to a bus stop or to pay extra for taxis to come and pick you up (or rent a car.) We enjoyed this, but it might not be convenient for older or less fit people. Because of the remote location (and the water issue), we opted to have Marie cook meals for us. Her meals were quite good and made of very fresh ingredients. You could easily cook for yourself, but ingredients can be a bit difficult to come by on such a small island.

Lastly, Bob & Marie are very eager to service your every need, but we had a little bit of sticker shock with some of the “extras”. Sometimes they were very clear that certain things would be an extra charge (such meals) – and rightly/fairly so. However, there were other things that seemed like “favors” or basics that would be included that we’ve always had included elsewhere. For instance, other B&B hosts will offer to pick you up at the airport (which is about 10 minutes away). Bob offered and sent his driver, but then charged us extra for the service. It felt strange at the end of our trip to be surprised by things that seemed like they were “on the house.” The prices aren’t extreme or unfair, but be prepared to pay additional fees for everything at Seaclusion Suites. We were even charged for drinking water. To be honest, I felt a little cheated that I wasn’t allowed to take a shower or flush the toilet, and I had to pay extra for water to drink. One of the things I like about staying at private residences and B&Bs is the extra personal attention. These little charges tarnished the human touch for us a bit. We would have preferred our hosts not “offer” to do so many special things for us and we wouldn’t have accepted if we had known it was a business transaction.

Overall, Carricou is a lovely place to visit and Seaclusion Suites is a relaxing place to stay. As long as you know what to expect, you won’t be disappointed. In our estimation, Seaclusion Suites is probably the best option on the island, other than a private villa.
