See What Past Guests Have to Say
St. Lucia was amazing!!! Stephanie and I just wanted to reach out and say thank you now that we are back from our honeymoon and finally settling into married life. Calabash Cove was the perfect slice of paradise and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate after months and months of preparing for the big day. Stephanie was blown away with both the island and the resort, so I’d say that surprising her was completely worth it!
We were able to do a lot of lounging/relaxing, but we also ventured out on a few excursions. They included a “hop-on hop-off” catamaran tour (which included snorkeling, piton viewing, a plantation tour, and a mud bath!), a sunset cruise on Rodney Bay (our favorite!), an island buggy tour, and a rainforest treetop zipline adventure. Most of them were only a few hours long, so we were still able to enjoy the luxuries of the resort in the afternoons.
The resort was perfect… the Water’s Edge Cottage was absolutely amazing! We had everything we needed and more: air conditioned bedroom, sitting room with couches, doublesinks, Jacuzzi, outdoor shower, a hammock other outdoor furniture, and our own personal view of the sunset every night before dinner from our own private pool! Surprisingly enough, the level of service even surpassed the quality of the accommodations. Most of the staff knew us by name by mid-week, and some even remembered other little details about our lives in general. They helped book all of our excursions and even arranged transportation to and from each of them. We felt like royalty. The dining was exceptional as well – there are just too many good things to say about Calabash Cove. There was a span of about 36 hours when the electricity went out on a small portion of the island – it honestly wasn’t even that bad (just a little warm when we slept at night). The day after the electricity came on, one of the managers offered us a $300 credit on our final bill to compensate us for the inconvenience. We were completely spoiled, and now no vacation will ever be the same!
We will have the memories we made in St. Lucia for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much for making the entire process easier for us. We recommend St. Lucia and Calabash Cove to everyone, and we will certainly recommend your services as well! The next time Stephanie and I take a big trip and need help, you will definitely be hearing from us!
We stayed at Calabash Cove for 7 nights on our honeymoon after it was recommended to us by friends. Needless to say, it went above and beyond any of our expectations. The resort did a great job arranging transportation for us to and from the airport, helped us select and coordinate different activities – all of which were wonderful – and were the friendliest, most informed staff I’ve ever met. It is a smaller resort (which was lovely) and all of the staff knew our names, as well as my food allergies before we’d even met them. The food was delicious – we were planning to eat out more but ended up only eating out on 3 or 4 occasions – only ate out once for dinner. The crab back, scallops, and bacon wrapped plantains were just a few of our favorites! Highly recommend the spa as well – one of the best massages I’ve ever had. The pool looks right out into the Caribbean Sea and the beach is only a few steps down the stairs. Activities we enjoyed: helicopter ride in, ziplining (we did the tranopy but wish we would have tried the adrenaline tour), all day catamaran tour (highly recommend), Jump Up Street Party (very local, so much fun), and Snuba (highly recommend). Sonny, Sonniel, Sylvester the Rock, Joel, Davidson (ask him for a Down Comforter drink), Bennita, and Unita are just a few of the fabulous people who made our trip as amazing as it was. Thank you!!
Room Tip: We had a swim up junior suite and it was perfect! It was on the end so it was quiet but central.
This was the most awesome wedding and honeymoon location we could have ever found. The resort is intimate and personal. The restaurant is amazing, not what you would expect from an all inclusive (normally a buffet). The staff is so wonderfully friendly and there is no detail that is missed. Unita (the hotel manager) and her entire staff are to be commended. Kim Dennis (the wedding planner) did a fantastic job and really went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect. We will always cherish our wonderful memories for this amazing piece of paradise.
Room Tip: The beach front cottages are the best!!
We traveled back to Saint Lucia in March as part of our honeymoon. We had been to Calabash Cove almost exactly 2 years earlier and couldn’t think of a better place to celebrate our honeymoon and relax after 4 weeks travelling.
We were pleased to find that all the charm that wooed us the first time still remained and even some of our favorite staff were still there and still on great form.
As usual, the pool bar was the place to be and the staff were mostly the same. A huge thanks to Lance, Gavin and the rest of the crew at the pool who made our holiday memories complete.
Another special call out to the hotel manager Unita who once again was there with her amazing smile and persona to make us feel special all the time.
We’ll be back for sure as we now consider Calabash a home away from home.
