Grenadian Hotel St George's Saint George's Reviews
Jan 15, 2007
Spent a couple of weeks at the Rex with my wife and son, 3 years old at the time. The hotel claims to be child friendly but we found it extremely hard for the staff to cater for a kids type club throughout the day. They maintained that it was because there was not enough staff and therefore not cost effective to open up the kids club. So advice is to either go deep into the tourist season or don't rely on the Rex to provide the services advertised.
