We have been taking an annual winter break in the carribbean for some 20 years and have loved the experience but the Calabash Cove was a great disappointment. The staff were terrific, friendly and helpful.The food in the restaurant was excellent but the evening entertainment was very poor .....mediocre pub type singers who packed up at 9pm leaving guests to...

My husband took me to St. Lucia for my 40th birthday, and after reading reviews on pretty much every property on the island, I chose Calabash Cove for the overwhelming number of positive reviews. We did not want an over populated resort with an abundance of nightlife, but a more laid back place where we could relax and really enjoy... More

Calabash Cove was a perfect honeymoon destination. The hotel is very small, and we reserved one of the ocean cottages. The cottage was pretty, but slightly rustic. The restaurant at the hotel was amazing, and tourists from all over the island came to our hotel. Note, there is not any nightlife and the hotel is fairly secluded.

I always make it a point to post a review anytime I am especially pleased or displeased, as I find that these reviews can be very helpful to someone who is about to spend their hard-earned income on a vacation to someplace new and/or exotic. I can be a little wordy, but I really like to paint a picture for... More

My Wife and myself chose Calabash Cove for our Tenth Wedding Anniversary. We were not disappointed, we stayed in one of the cottages and were amazed. What this facility considers to be a mini bar wow.....The facilities and the staff are amazing, the sunsets are fantastic. Our favorite time was breakfast, the staff would bring us breakfast at the room,... More

We are still here with two days remaining. I felt it necessary to mention a few reasons for an early review. The management and staff are extremely friendly committed to ensuring that your stay is perfect, even the gardeners want to ensure your break is an exceptional one. What I love about Calabash Cove is that they have got the... More

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights for our honeymoon and had an amazing time. We stayed in a waterfront bungaloo (the only free-standing one, the rest are two units per bungalow). The room was fantastic. There was a separate living room and bedroom. Be warned: the living room has no AC. So you couldn't sit in there... More

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... More

Calabash Cove is self-contained and an excellent place to escape with its lovely sea views, beautifully manicured exotic gardens and small but well-kept beach. The food served on the main terrace is among the best on the island at dinner time with some of the fish dishes particularly noteworthy although the lunch service around the pool area and quality was...

Everything about this resort is top notch, and you couldn't ask for better scenery, food, cocktails, and staff. Shout out to my main man Lance at the pool bar-and Gavin, too.. A guy named Dorsey carves homemade stuff from wood, and they made great souvenirs. I'm sorry if I forgot the names of some of the other guys, but they... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tucked away on gently sloping, tropical beachfront on the northwest coast of the island, Calabash Cove is one of just a select few five-star resorts on St. Lucia. Nestled in the sheltered bay of Bonaire Estate, Calabash Cove is perched on a hillside sloping gently towards the Caribbean Sea, where cool ocean breezes provide a wonderful respite and the turquoise sea is offset by the vibrant green of tropical vegetation and views of Walcott Island. A private beach and nearby coral reef provide the perfect place to rest, reflect and dream. The resort has been designed with great care to complement and exist in harmony with the beauty of the natural surroundings. The main buildings of the hotel, such as the lobby, restaurant, bar, sanctuary, and infinity pool with waterfall lie on a slope, with the villas in the midst of lush vegetation perfectly situated to view nightly sunsets. The natural elements of earth, wind, light and water are represented in the exotic wood, stone and natural materials used in the composition of the buildings. The peaceful and tranquil gardens, under the care of one of the finest landscape architects in the Caribbean, have been created to capture and optimize the natural splendor of the area and are filled with vibrant, fragrant flowers set amid groves of trees. ... more   less
