Calabash Cove Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Our holiday was made special by the resorts staff, this is one stunning place, spectacular food to the incredible views especially of the sunset, made to feel very special and welcome by the staff, romance round every corner especially at the Spa and even had a Monday night meet and greet with the staff to make the stay even more comfortable.
We were looking for a small, intimate place to stay for our first visit to St. Lucia. This adults-only hotel is located about a 90 minute drive northwest from the main international airport (UVF) on the island. It has just 26 rooms, some of which are cottages. All rooms and cottages are westward-facing, so it makes for enjoyable sunset watching!The highlight of this hotel has to be the very attentive and friendly staff. From the time we arrived until our departure the entire staff was always very helpful - reception, restaurant, and groundskeepers.At the hotel's main restaurant (Windsong) the food is very good and the service both attentive and very friendly. The restaurant offers both a regular menu and a daily specials menu for lunch and dinner.The grounds are impeccably kept.There is a small beach at the hotel - it was clean, but it would not be considered an excellent beach - there are other beaches on the island that are considered better. There are no private beaches on St. Lucia, but because the beach at Calabash Cove is so small it felt very private. Added bonus: because of the quiet nature of the area, there are no vendors walking the beach, which we had heard can be problematic elsewhere on the island.Our accommodations were in one of the hotel's Water's Edge Cottages. Consisting of a bedroom, sitting area, bathroom (with large jacuzzi tub and outdoor rain shower), and expansive deck with a plunge pool it really was an oasis of tranquility! The bed was very comfortable.Why not an "excellent" rating? Though this hotel is only 9 years old, it was showing its age with respect to the upkeep of some of the areas of the property - some public areas are in need of repainting, and there was some missing tiles and signs of mold in the plunge pool. Also, the outdoor rain shower had some signs of mold. We of course realize this can be an issue in such a tropical climate, but it looked as if this condition was not being attended to as often as it should. Also, we did not receive nightly turn-down housekeeping service - a service we felt should have been provided for this level of accommodation.Given some of these shortcomings, however, it was all-in-all, a very nice place to stay.
My husband and I and our 22 year-old son had a delightful visit staying at the Calabash. The well-kept resort is beautiful with very friendly and accommodating staff. Service was truly outstanding! The food was very good, too, with most meals being excellent. We had the all-inclusive package and were very pleased. The resort is fairly small and was pretty quiet when we went, which was perfect for us. When we did want to venture out on some excursions, the concierge was quite helpful in setting those up for us. Kudos to the wonderful staff! Our son had became ill (from something he ate on the plane) later on the day we arrived and he received kind help in various ways, including a fresh ginger tea the kitchen prepared for him more than a few times. We were made to feel very welcome and valued in many ways. Our rooms were also lovely, with perfect views of the ocean - the WIFI worked fine. We will definitely recommend visiting St. Lucia and the Calabash to our friends!
This was my first visit to the Caribbean after my wife and daughter had visited previously,The Calabash Cove is a wonderful hotel, right on the beach front with amazing views and sunsets.The Hotel staff are delightful with nothing being too much trouble, always available to chat and that even includes the Gardeners and ground staff on the beach. The rooms are beautiful well equipped and comfortable and the mini bar must be seen to be believed. Our Room attendant was charming and always smiling.The pool Bar is very friendly and a couple of mentions here, Chris (aka Mr Fabulous) a great barman and knows his cocktails, had a great bit of football banter for the whole stay, shame he supports Man U ha ha. Then there is Channel ( No5) sorry if that is spelt wrong but she kept us very well supplied with Rum Punch and Piton beer( albeit a little too well supplied on some days Hic Hic.The hotel staff in the dining room were also fantastic and welcomed us each and every day with warm smiles and friendly conversation, the chef should also be praised as we had not a single poor meal and the menu was very varied with an additional specials list every day. We had a trip out to the Pitons on a catamaran and that was very special even spotting a group of dolphins on the return journey.We also went into town for a meal one evening and this was fine but to be honest the hotel was better. Had a go in the spa too and this was very relaxing and would recommend it. We really did have the most relaxing stay and would like to thank all of the hotel staff for their welcome and look forward to another visit very soon.
Calabash Cove was a dream come true. We knew we made the right choice for our wedding as soon as we arrived at sunset to a majestic, open air lobby over looking a picturesque ocean view. Calabash expertly managed our group of family and friends as if it were a well oiled machine. Yet they maintained all of the one on one care you want with a smaller, boutique wedding venue. Our wedding guests thought we were rockstars for booking such a gorgeous location. Kim, Rohan and all of the staff went above and beyond to work with us customizing the decor and choosing the beach location, flowers, archway, table settings, live music, colour palette and dinner menu. Stress free doesn’t begin to describe the ease in which we felt throughout the process. The end result was beautiful and we made the perfect choice for such a special occasion.We were lucky to visit twice. Once just the two of us for 4 days to a pre plan the wedding and another visit 2 months later with our large group of 30 people for a 7 days. We stayed in the cottages and the rest of our group were in various rooms throughout the property including Cottages, Pool suites and regular rooms. Everyone loved their experience from the personal touches, the food, the beach, the staff.... those views! We had all ages there from people in their 20's and 30's to parents into there mids 60's. There was 1 child, although the resort is more for adults, he had a great time too:) Thank you and we cannot wait to come back! – Krystal and Colin 2014
