Perfect place for a relaxing vacation.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 Jan 2023
I first visited these cottages 45 years ago with my parents. I returned last week with my wife and two early-20's daughters. We stayed at the Sandpiper cottage, which has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Remarkably, all the good things about the Lance Aux Epines cottages from 45 years ago remain true today. Beautiful beach, peaceful surroundings, friendly staff. The beach restaurant was a nice addition, we ate there three times and were pleased each time. The other three nights we ate at other nearby restaurants. The cottage is spacious and comfortable. It has all the amenities one needs, including some outlets for USA plugs (thoughtful!). In contrast to 45 years ago, the cottage has air conditioning, although we really didn't need it much because the weather was so mild. I looked at other sites for a family vacation and the value of the LAU cottages was outstanding. If you want a quiet place to stay, this is a perfect choice. Ideal for families. The water was perfect, but there is no pool. I did rent a car. Driving in Grenada is challenging, but having a car did help us get around the Southwest corner of the island. We went to magazine beach a couple times for snorkeling (easy drive). We were so sad to leave. Grab this gem of a vacation.
Date of stay: December 2022
Room Tip: Great walk to cliffs overlooking the ocean. There are also a few good restaurants within walking...

Returned to these beautiful cottages for a second time, after having to cancel due to lockdown .
It was amazing to be back . The location is breathtaking, literally steps from the beach which is a classic, quiet Caribbean stunner. . Every single member of staff are friendly and helpful. We had a two bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage , our friends had a two bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage . There are also a few apartments. Cottages are older style inside, but with absolutely everything you need, spotlessly clean , super comfy beds with air con in the bedroom . and serviced daily . Beautiful gardens too . Sands bar has grown a little since our last visit , understandably, as it’s right on the beach , serving excellent cocktails and food . Think we have found our paradise here, and will return soon .

Hello MrMrsW50,

We were delighted to have you, your family & friends with us again after such a long wait for your return, due to lockdown and having to cancel.

We are very pleased to hear you have enjoyed your stay again and you continue to find all the amenities and ambiance to be just what is needed for your stay with us. The garden team does work hard to keep the garden lush & beautiful and the housekeeping team pays a lot of attention to details. We will be sure to pass on your compliments to the entire team!

We look forward to your return!

We have been coming here for several years and it was lovely to return after two lockdown years and find everything the same, if not better. Everyone was very welcoming and it was so good to be back in this delightful place. As ever, we were well looked after and much enjoyed the Sandbar and the occasional rum punch! We will return!

Hi J8397NYmichaelc,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review.

We were overjoyed to have you with us again after the two lockdown years. It was nice seeing everyone and catching up from where we left off in 2020.

We are very pleased that you enjoyed another stay with us and also enjoyed your meals/drinks at Sand Bar.

See you in 2023!

After vacationing on 23 different islands for the past 29 years, we have found our favorite - Grenada. Yes, we did return to several that we liked, but Grenada is the friendliest, least likely to be hit by a hurricane, and grows a lot of their own food. And now, after 4 times, Lance Aux Epines Cottages feels like our home away from home on this beautiful island.
Tim and his staff ALL treat us as if we are family, and will do anything to make our stay the best possible one. Each Cottage is a stones throw away from walking on the beach or swimming in the calm waters. The Beach Bar serves the best, most varied food - right on the property. Even Fabulous Lobster this week~!
Love listening to the waves and tree frogs at night, and the birds that wake up with the sun. Comfy beds, luxury towels and hot solar heated water for showers all make for a splendid relaxing time.
We've already booked for next year!

Room tip: Choice of 1 bedroom apt, or cottage, or 2 bedroom cottages, each one has it's advantages... look at the layout of the property.

Hello kjj09,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us this glowing review.

We were really happy to have you back after the 2 years of not seeing our regular guests such as yourself, due to covid travel restrictions. It is with great pleasure we were able to welcome you back to "your home away from home" this year! And even more of a pleasure to hear you have enjoyed it once again.

I will be sure to pass on your compliments to Tim & the team! Sand Bar does indeed serve delicious meals; the team would be very pleased to know you have enjoyed the experience.

See you next year!

We spent Christmas & New Years visiting our son-in-law attending St. George's Medical School. This was the perfect location (only 7 min drive to his apartment), a short drive to grocery and other amenities as well as walking distance to a few of the restaurants and bars. The staff was fantastic!!! I cannot say enough about the Beach Bar and the staff there as well! They have several water sports we took advantage of and enjoyed. The cottages are very quaint, clean and plenty of space for all of us, including any extra company we had during our stay. If I had one suggestion it would be to add fans in the main living area. I love the open air concept but it could get pretty warm. However, it wouldn't stop me from coming back! EXCELLENT place to stay!

Hello Mcamp71,

Thank you for leaving us such a glowing review.

We are so pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay and the amenities we have to offer. It was really a pleasure meeting you all and having you around. Such a lovely family!

Concerning the fan, we do offer guest standing fans for the living room area upon request. I am sorry we were not aware of your discomfort during your stay, otherwise we could have provided the fan. I will make a note on your file, so we will be sure to place one in the living room area for your future stay.

Have a happy and healthy 2022!
