MOUNT CINNAMON RESORT (by Theresa)

A couple of weeks ago we had our boat hauled out of the water for general, annual maintenance. During the time the work was being performed on Pilots’ Discretion we opted to treat ourselves to a stay at the luxurious Mount Cinnamon Resort and Spa. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel like family returning home. Jesma, at the front desk, greeted us with an infectious smile and escorted us, via golf cart, to our two (2) story, two (2) bedroom, two (2) bathroom,  and two (2) balconied villa.

Upon entering, one’s eyes could not help but be drawn to the spectacular panoramic view of the turquoise blue waters of St. George Harbor, and the white sand, palm tree-lined crescent Grand Anse Beach stretched out down below.

While the boys were ecstatic with the spaciousness of the villa, they were elated, equally so, by the deliciousness of the welcome pastries (delivered, much to their delight, every subsequent evening)!

As spacious as the villa was on the inside, the impeccably manicured grounds outside seemed also, to go on forever. While golf carts were available to take you anywhere on the property, we relished strolling through the tropical gardens taking in the vibrant colors and exotic scents.

The array of available activities likewise seemed never-ending! Ryan and Ronan enjoyed sharpening their shuffle board and croquet skills, and even challenged Mom to a lawn chess match.

There was ping-pong and beach volleyball, both in the shade of the palm trees.

And, as if living on a boat didn’t give the boys enough time on the water, we could hardly keep them away from the all included water activities.

The boys put their sailing lessons to use taking the Hobie Cats out in the ever blowing trade winds. Randy also went out sailing with them, while Patton and I enjoyed some quiet time on the beach (yes, Mount Cinnamon is dog friendly!!!)

With all the activities, the boys worked up quite the appetites. The two on premises restaurants served up amazing cuisine.

On Wednesdays, General Manager Mark Kitchen hosts a poolside meet and greet cocktail hour to introduce the  Mount Cinnamon Resort management team and staff. It is readily apparent that this team is a cohesive unit working hard to ensure their guests have a great experience while at Mount Cinnamon, which we surely did.

On Friday evenings, Savvy hosts a beach bonfire dinner under the stars. Feet in the sand, we listened to Caribbean calypso and steel pan drums. Graham crackers, marshmallows and Grenadian chocolate are provided to all for delicious, mouth-watering s’mores.

Savvy is also available for special “private” dining occasions. Our stay at Mount Cinnamon coincided with Randy’s and my anniversary. Chef Kareem, and the team at Mount Cinnamon did an outstanding job making our anniversary a romantic and special day to be remembered!

Eight days after she was hauled, the Pilots’ Discretion was safely back in the water, maintenance items complete and our brief landside stay at Mount Cinnamon Resort was over. We truly cannot say enough good things about Mount Cinnamon Resort. Whether you are taking a break from life aboard your boat or you need some really special accommodations for visiting guests, Mount Cinnamon gets our highest recommendation.

    Incredible. What a magnificent place. It looks like Patton and the Kids are really enjoying it. Were you able to train Patton to use artificial turf to do his business when underway? We tried that with out cockers but they would have no part of it. We put them down on the AstroTurf and they looked at us like we were crazy. We had to dinghy them to shore instead.

    Have fun you’all. Splice the MainBrace!
