Where do I begin? From the moment we decided to stay at the Villa Amarillo to our departure, was an awesome 5 star experience! We were greeted at the airport by Shawn and then greeted at the Villa by Anna (the owner) and Ms. Maureen. A delicious dinner and wine awaited us. Anna is the perfect host. During our stay, we invited Anna over for an evening drink and conversation - she is like a new friend! She answers emails promptly and sometimes even anticipates your questions.
The Villa itself is true to the pictures and more. It is very well maintained and spotless! We went with our family of 5 (three university adult children). Each of our kids had their own room with a/c and ensuite bathroom. There is so much room in this villa to spread out and you can enjoy a view from every sitting area. You can be together but there is enough room to be separate if you want. Ms. Maureen is a gem! She is so efficient and so accommodating to any need that you might have. She even did our personal laundry - what a treat for me!
The Villa is near to everything. We could walk to True Blue Bay resort or drive to Grand Anse beach - we did rent a car for our vacation (which Anna arranged for us). We did it all from snorkelling (Eco-Dive), to scuba diving (Eco-Dive), to kayaking (Conservation Kayak), to visiting a Rum distillery, to beaching at La Sagesse beach, to hiking Concord Falls, to touring the west coast up to Grenville, to deep sea fishing with Gary. Anna also arranged for us to tour St. George's University Veterinarian School since our oldest daughter is studying to be a vet in the US. In between all our activity there was lots of time to lounge around the villa pool or just enjoy happy hour on the veranda. Some good restaurants - the Beach House, the Aquarium and Umbrellas.
Grenada is a beautiful and safe island to visit! Thank-you Anna for making Christmas and New Years 2014 a memorable one! Until we meet again......maybe in my rental home.
