Calabash Cove was presented to us as an option by our travel agent after deciding to change booking from another island and AI resort. My spouse and I were hesitant at first as this was a smaller boutique hotel very dissimilar from the AI experiences we have had in the past, but since we were looking for a relaxed getaway rather than an active vacation we kept an open mind. Would we find one restaurant monotonous? Would service be what we were used to? How would the smaller sized beach and pool be? What about the long transfer to the resort? As you can tell by the title, all the pre-trip concerns were moot. Our stay at Calabash Cove was the first time we considered extending our trip because we enjoyed it so much.
With so many fake/forced reviews out there (I dislike other resort chains shoving an Ipad in my face at checkout soliciting a review) I can confirm that the food is as good as the Calabash reviews state. Whether eating in the Windsong restaurant to enjoy the exceptional views, or having room service, each meal was spot-on and of far superior quality to mass produced large resort fare. The daily specials were always a nice surprise to the point I’m not sure I ever ordered off the regular menu.
Service all around the resort was enjoyable as well. At no point did you feel as if you were getting pumped for tips, that tips were even expected or that the responsiveness of service changed based on tipping. In talking with staff, you also found out how many of them have worked at Calabash for an extended time and had some sincere interactions with the staff to learn about St Lucia and life on the island. It is worth visiting the resort for the staff interaction alone (and maybe to invent a drink at the pool bar with Shanelle).
The facilities of the resort and the grounds leave nothing to be desired for a relaxing time. It is a beautiful property that is well maintained in a picturesque location. The small beach was never crowded and most days our swim-up room was like having a private pool since it was the slower season. We did take advantage of the spa services which were simple to arrange and of as high of quality as I have experienced.
Calabash is on the northern part of the island, and the trip from the airport is daunting is you suffer from motion sickness as my spouse does. I enjoyed sitting back as a driver did the work and I was able to see areas of the island that were not part of the typical tour group trail. But, we did attempt to take the helicopter transfer back although last second weather unfortunately prevented that. I mention this because the driver who thought he was making a 15 minute transfer to the helipad had to juggle his schedule mid-trip to make the full 90 minute drive to the airport and Rohan at Calabash diligently coordinated it all remotely with little fuss.
Go to Calabash if you want to enjoy your time, if enjoyment isn’t a top priority then choose somewhere else.
We came for a relaxing break and Calabash Cove delivers on its promises. Everything about it was as we’d read before booking. Superb advice and assistance via email before we travelled and then our week was everything we hoped for. Our swim up suite was clean, luxurious and very comfortable. The pool and it’s bar are great and the beach was quiet, calm and picturesque. The menu is wide ranging and different specials are available every day. Top of the list however are the staff; excellent service, attention to detail all delivered with a fabulous sense of humour and warmth. If a relaxing break in wonderful surroundings with wonderful staff is what you’re looking for, look no further and book now!
