Le Grand Courlan Spa Resort - Reader Reports & Opinion
Just Back From Tobago Lgc
We had a wonderful time. It is a beautiful island and very underdeveloped which is lovley. The Grand Courlan was delightful, great rooms, gorgeous beach, fabulous sea and very kind, smiling and helpful staff. Leeroy the beach chair man was an absolute hoot! The banana coladas were just yummy!
Eating on Leondros Island was great and we managed to get a table there nearly every night.
The best thing about the whole trip was watching a leatherback turtle lay her eggs on the beach and then slowly make her way, sighing with relief back to the sea. I will never forget this.
Thank you again for such a good web site. The information here helped so much in getting the best from Tobago.
Info On Le Grand Courlan
I am due to spend a 2 week stay at LGC from 19th July with my wife for hopefully a completely luxurious and relaxing break.
As much as this site has been very useful I still remain confused and somewhat sceptical as to the quality of the resort.
If anyone has travelled in the last month could they please give me an honest review of the resort and hopefully alleviate my concerns.
Going To Lgc End Of October.......
Found this site last week after booking 14 nights at the Grand Courlan.
My initial thoughts when i started searching around the many holiday review sites was that i may have made a bad move, but when i found this incredibly informative site, my mind was put at rest.
I always travel with an open mind after a holiday many years ago in the Canaries. We arrived late and the hotel staff pointed us in the direction of the buffet restaurant. The food that was there at 9:30pm was very well presented for that time of the evening and was just what we needed.
20 or so feet away from us was a family from Ireland who did nothing but complain about the food and service. They were expecting full blown waiter service in a buffet rest!(?). The following morning they were spotted in the bar, giving the rep an earfull and stating that they would be complaining to the holiday company as soon as they got back home.
We had two fabulous weeks at that particular hotel and could not find a fault anywhere.
What i think i'm trying to get at is, there will always be people that will not be satisfied wherever they go, no matter how nice the Hotel is!
I for one so far have been very impressed with the service i have received so far since booking online with Virgin. Admitedly, its a long way off till my 'better half' and I travel there, but we are already looking forward to visiting the caribbean for the 1st time and will make sure that we return back here with our views and comments on our stay.
Sorry for the long 1st post.....
Wedding At Lgc In October
we are travelling to LGC at the end of October this year for our wedding and i was wondering if anyone else has had any experience of weddings at LGC, having browsed this forum for a couple of months i have read varying reviews on LGC but nothing of weddings here. we are travelling as a party of 6 with my parents and brother and partner, none of the rest of my party have ever experienced the Carribean before and i am anxious that they enjoy their stay in the best of surroundings and go home feeling that they would like to return to the best continent in the world (in my opinion)
your opinions and views on what weddings at LGC are like and the setting for weddings (ie beach or gardens) would be much appreciated.
Lgc's Cat And Her Five Kittens
We returned from the LGC on 2nd August 2003. While we were there, the hotel had acquired a cat who had five kittens; two tortoiseshells, two tabbys and a black and white one. They seemed to live near the stairs leading up to the pool. When we first arrived, we thought they were starving and we started to take them food and drink from the restaurant. How wrong we were, as every day there would be someone else smuggling food to this loveable little family and they were probably the best fed cats on the Island!
The kittens were only about 6 weeks old when we went, so if anyone visits LGC anytime after August, could you please let me know how they are getting on.
