Wonderful small boutique like resort!

Absolutely a wonderful resort and staff! The staff was very attentive, friendly and personable! If you're looking for an upscale, relaxing small resort this is the place! The rooms are modern and clean with very good housekeeping service. The staff was always willing to help and give us ideas for things to do outside of the resort. Great value!

Much needed mini-break!

We were fortunate to spend a long weekend at Calabash Cove a little while back and could not have been more delighted. We were given beach cottage 8 and now fondly refer to it as our weekend at The Ocho. The grounds are well maintained, the feel of the resort small and welcoming. The staff were all amazing. We woke up and had breakfast on our terrace beside our private plunge pool each morning and there is no better way to start the day. Our two dinners in the restaurant were fantastic, including the best escargot I have ever had. Our last night we went for a beautiful private dinner at the end of the dock, overlooking the sea, Castries and watching a beautiful sunset.The daytime team at the pool were engaging and fun. Lance, Shenelle and Mr. Fabulous create such a great atmosphere. We are forever grateful for our weekend at the ocho. We hope to return soon.

A hidden gem

Not the largest hotel on the Island but one of the best. Where to start? The staff make it. They are warm, friendly, funny but also know what they are doing and do it well. The location is good too - close to Castries but feeling secluded with its own little beach and a huge swimming pool. The restaurant is excellent too and a cut above others we have tried. Give the place a try!

Perfect time & place

I desperately needed a break from real life, so I originally booked this resort for a solo getaway. When my boyfriend's schedule cleared up, we decided to use the trip to celebrate our anniversary too. From the airport transfer questions, to adding another reservation, the staff at Calabash exceeded the hype. Incredibly friendly, helpful, and timely- it was complete foreshadowing of the trip we were about to have. The location was clean, welcoming, and pretty. The food was delicious from the restaurant to room service. The couples massage in the gazebo set an amazing tone for our trip (try to book yours for the first night like we did!), and it was the best Swedish massages I've ever had. The Swim-Up Suite was incredible! The amenities and details are delightful- cool, scented towels at your arrival, smiles from everyone, the grounds groomed to perfection, and the equipment for water activities are just a few that we enjoyed. The setting is intimate, serene, and beautiful. However, the standout feature of Calabash Cove is its staff. All the reviews don't do it justice, and I'm sure this review won't either! The service was impeccable, and every staff member we met treated us like family. A gardener actually brought me mangoes from his personal tree because we had chatted about my mango obsession the day before! Kevin, Chanel, and Carin were among the many wonderful people that contributed to making this the best vacation either of us has had in a long time. I'm trying to see as much of the world as possible before I start repeating locations, but I won't hesitate to get back to Calabash soon!

We recently returned from an amazing holiday at Calabash Cove.The location, accommodation food and exceptional staff made it the most joyful experienceThe Resort:Peaceful, small boutique hotel with quiet beach and outstanding facilitiesRooms(Ocean View Sunset Suite) Large and comfortable with great views and daily, well serviced mini bar and large whirlpool bath. Great to come back to after a hard day at the beach.FoodAbsolutely first class, be it in the main restaurant or at the pool bar. Daily specials and always a great selection to choose from. Chef Thierry's French influence clearly on display We did a the trip (by speedboat from the beach) to The Pitons, taking in the Mud Baths and the waterfall. Would recommend this. It was a great day out.Saving the best till last:The StaffKriss, Marlon, Lance, Trevan, Shanelle, Rosa, Bobby, Sonny, Marlon, Kevan, Sysler (sorry if we missed anyone). All great friendly people, up for a laugh and making it feel just so natural to feel totally relaxed. Also Rohan from the front desk who checked us in so effortlessly, with a very welcoming Rum Punch! And Mr.Dexter, the GM and Tim , the Maintenance Manager, who were always around with a smile and a wave, and happy to chat.Not forgetting the many friendly gardeners who keep the gardens looking so beautiful, and kept us supplied with fresh cut coconuts!Thanks Guys for really making our holiday.
