How to Get There
Wow! We just returned home from a short trip to Calabash Cove. It was tranquil and relaxing and just what we needed. The entire facility is beautiful, rooms are perfect for couples. We stayed I'm cottage 6 and loved the outdoor shower, where else can you shower and listen and watch the waves crash on the shore? Cottage was clean, no bug issues. The staff are all fun and hardworking. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The food was wonderful and filling on the all inclusive plan. Every employee made sure we were enjoying ourselves and I would like to thank them all but there are too many to name and I'm sure I will forget someone! The beach was beautiful but really not much for swimming as water got cloudy/murky after a few feet. Loved the kayaks and made an attempt at paddleboarding! Cant say enough good things about our stay!
Our stay was mid November, we started our first two days with rain as November is the end of their hurricane season. The sun came out on the third day and through out our stay. Clouds can be very welcoming as it very hot in St. Lucia.
We had requested Cottage #1 however there was work being done in that Cottage. We decided on Cottage 9 the other most private Cottage. We were offered Cottage #1 when it was completed because The WiFi in #9 is very poor and my husband needed to do a bit of work while away. We took a look at #1 and I found #9 to be much nicer location wise. The setting was just nicer. Each Cottage has its own pool. The shower is in door out door. Part of the Cottage is without A/C , it can get very warm. Im thinking the large doors that open are to give you that outdoor living feeling. There were 4 water bottles in the refrigerator a coffee maker, a safe and hair dryer. An Iron upon request.
We had a few bumps safe not working was one, they addressed each issue promptly! No matter your needs they address it with a smile. Staff is amazing with the gardeners my favorite. If you stay in a Cottage you are sure to meet them. They treat you like family. Offer you fruit grown on the property and take the time to greet and with a smile and a few works each day. They keep the grounds beautiful!
You will have a hike to get to breakfast.... there are a lot of stairs! We didn’t us the pool, the beach is kept nice and raked each day. For most of our stay we shared it with just the guests of the resort. One day was an exception, it is a public beach.
The road in and out is pretty bad as the taxis bottom out, that would be my one and only complaint. From what I was told it’s a private road, maintained by the residents. In dire need of repair.
We did not go all inclusive. We had breakfast included which we ate close to 10:00 each day. The beds were too comfy to get out of :) For the most part skipped lunch and order from the room service menu each night. With a few drinks each day and a 400. Tour we still didn’t come close to the cost of the all inclusive about half. However we eat to live not live to eat. If you love food all inclusive may be the way to go.
If you bring cash make sure you bring small bills if you feel you will need them, the resort does not have USD. We had to go to a bank in Rodney Bay to get change.
We took the Wet and Wild tour it was like three tours in one, seems expensive but includes Sailng there, the ride on the buggies was so fun, lunch At The Beacon which has a view of the Pitons, mud bath, waterfall , snorkeling and a sunset sail.
In short if you are in need of R&R Calabash Cove will provide with a smile.
My wife I stayed at this resort November 3rd- November 16th, 2018. This was our first trip to St. Lucia and Calabash Cove Resort. We normally research extensively before traveling to a new place but for some reason this time we didn't. Hopefully this review will save you some time with your research.
Starting with St. Lucia-
The island is a beautiful as you can imagine. When you land be prepared for an hour and a half drive from the airport to the resort. We weren't aware of this but the drive was so nice it didn't bother us. The transfer drivers are knowledgable and you feel like your getting a tour of the island on your way to the resort. The air port is on the southern most part of the island and the resort is on the far northwest side of the island. It's really not that far away but because the roads are so winding it takes quite a bit of time. You'll drive through the rain forest along the way. You can also book a helicopter that will save you over an hour. Cost is about $200.00 per person.
Calabash Cove Resort-
From the minute you walk into the resort you'll feel welcome. The first thing you'll be greeted with is the stunning view of the ocean from the open lobby. The resort has 26 rooms of which some are swim up and some are cottages. We stayed in room 210 which had an awesome view.
We found the food to be exceptional. Chef Paul and his team do a great job. There is a specials of the day page that they'll include with the standard menu. We mostly did the specials and were never disappointed. Everyday for dinner there was someone playing live music. Don't be in a hurry to eat as it takes a little longer than expected but worth the wait.
We definitely recommend the spa. Because we were there for two weeks we spaced out our treatments. When we first arrived we did the 80 minute Spa Sampler couples massage. Highly recommend. We also did pedicures and Swedish massages. All were wonderful. The spa is a little on the pricey side but we found the service justified the price.
As Dexter, the General Manager, put it "They are gems". That they are. Everyone there works so hard. Lance, Chris, Shenelle, Dina, Trevon, The rock, and Murlon all made memorable impressions on us. I'm sure we missed someone but everyone was great.
There are Sunset cruises out of Rodney Bay that are worth checking out. We went on one called Carnival. I don't believe they're affiliated with the cruise lines. I believe it was $75.00 per person. We also did the Tout Bagay Catamaran Day tour which takes you to see the Pitons, plantation tour, Marigot Bay, Snorkeling, Waterfall and mud bath. We paid $110.00 per person. Highly recommend. It's an all day tour. There is also a Street party in Gros Islet that is popular with the locals. It's every Friday night and I understand it starts around 9. Unfortunately it was cancelled the day we went due to rain. You can search Trip Advisor for St. Lucia Gros Islet street party and it will come up.
You won't regret St. Lucia and you won't regret Calabash Cove.

The hotel is stunning. Our swim up suite was amazing. The owner and all of his staff are incredibly friendly. They make the effort for the extra touch like knowing our name.
The swim up bar in the pool is well stocked and Lance and Chennel really know how to make great cocktails.
The food is delicious, a great range to chose from.
There are a couple of things that may make it difficult for those less able bodied, mainly the steps.
The hotel is small, 26 or so rooms, no kids and quite quiet.
I could go on but basically I couldn’t recommend this highly enough.
Was fortunate to visit this piece of paradise as part of a St Lucia Tourist board fam trip about a week ago and to say it took my breath away is an understatement. The food was incredible, the hosts were fun and very accommodating. The rooms are to die for and the beach is gorgeous and if you have the chance to have a dinner on the pontoon ..... do it!
