This was our second visit here. I found it even better than the first. Friendly, helpful staff, excellent choice of food. Most beautiful location with several pools and there is something for everyone. Water sports facilities very good. I am writing this more to praise and thank all for a great holiday. This hotel is closing for a complete revamp... More

We were in Smugglers Cove on February 7 to 14. We had a great time. The food was awesome. The entertainment was great. Spark's fire show was really good and I was picked to be in it with him. We met lots of wonderful people like Junior and Shannon. We had so much fun every night at the disco. From... More

A large group of us were sent here for a night when our flight leaving St. Lucia was cancelled. It's an hour and a half (at least) from the airport to the hotel so they must have been warned that we were coming, however they seemed very disorganized when we got there. When we were finally sorted out and got... More

Visited Smugglers Feb. 14 - 21 of this year, we were pleasantly surprised with the resort after hearing some negative comments. The ride to the resort is long, yes, but there is lots of scenery to look at and had no issues with being sick. We had a room close to the lobby which we had requested before hand and... More

We have just returned from our vacation in Saint Lucia on February 14th, 2015 and we had a really good time. We got an upgrade because we were located at 521 which at the furthest end of the resort, walking a distance of about 15 minutes. My husband has had one knee replacement and needs the other knee done and... More

Spent Feb. 17-24th at this resort. As promised, the trip from the airport was loooong, but we booked private transport with Real St. Lucia tours and it was well worth it. We arrived about 20 minutes earlier than the hotel transfer and were changed and in the pool before they had their rooms. You are pretty much relegated to the... More

We enjoyed our stay. Food was great, rooms were good. Service was very good. We understand that they are tearing it down in the spring. So get there while you can. While the rooms are dated, as others pointed out, they didn't take away from the overall value.
