Le Grand Courlan To Reopen Kitchen

Le Grand Courlan Resort and Spa has been given the all clear to re- open its kitchen following the outbreak of suspected food poisoning at the hotel last week.
However, County Chief Medical Officer Dr. Mentor Melville is still to give the green light to the nearby Grafton Beach Resort, both owned by businessman Ish Galbaransingh, to re-open its kitchen that was closed for a similar reason.
Tests showed that the water and the salad served at the hotels almost three weeks ago contained three types of bacteria. As a result Melville had ordered the closure of the kitchens while the Public Health Authority moved in to sanitise them, as well as to train staff in proper food handling and processing. However, the management took a decision to voluntary close the hotels.
Grafton is expected to be ready for re-opening this week after the water system is overhauled. Manager Rene Seepersadsingh is expected to make a statement on the matter shortly.

Hi, I have been a regular visitor of this fabulous site for some months in preparation of my holiday in tobago. Unfortunately the evening before my flight I was called by my travel agent to be advised that Grafton and Le grand courlan had been experiencing a virul illness which had left approx 50% of the guests unwell. The authorities had been called in to take various tests, but that I could still go and take my chances. Needless to say I was very concerned and called lgc to check the info, they confirmed that this was the case althoug they believed the problem was all over the island and that it was probably a type of flu virus, but that the auths had taken water/food/sea water and pool water to test. As the results were going to take about 5 days to come back from trinidad I opted to get off my flight in Grenada, so never did go to the beautiful island of Tobago. As my flight came home vai tobago I was able to talk with travellers who had been there and it seems that the ones on my flight had been affected for a day or two, but they thought that the problem was dying out. Sorry I cant give my promised reports to Steve (or Kim who asked me to check out the wedding situation.) I did meet with some people in grenada who had been to le grand courlan last year and were now at le source(where I re-scheduled my holiday) an was told that it was wonderful. I hope to try it early next year. I just felt it prudent to delay my visit to the island as nobody wants to go out to the caribbean to end up too ill to enjoy.

We have just booked to go to the Le Grand Courlan Spa in early December 2003 with Virgin but are now a little concerned about the standards of the food and service that we have been reading about. Also, concerned about the general quality of the hotel. It looked lovely in teh brochure but now that we have had a look on the internet, we are not too sure. Can anyone put our minds at rest or, at worst, advise to change our plans. Help!
