Had a relaxing ten night stay last December. Looked at a lot of the reviews before we went and they were really mixed. Decided to splash out on the helicopter transfers as the resort is at the opposite end of the island to the airport. Helicopter transfer was amazing and well worth it after a lengthy flight. On arrival at... More

The ammenities the hotel lists seem fantastic and most activities were available. I have to say the staff were wonderful and very helpful, especially Edlon at the spa. The gardens, the cove itself are beautiful and private and the beach activities are great. The restaurants were delicious and the buffet style restaurant had a lot of variety. The pools were... More

I was there last week , hotel definitely needed some work and some money spent on it. People are lovely and friendly . It is ok if you just want their tours as there is nothing to do nearby. Mind u your are on a beach but beware it is a public beach .good for a rest

We have just returned from a two week all inclusive holiday that was very good value. Two adults and three teenagers ; the site is fine with plenty of swimming pools and activities for younger children, the rooms were good and very clean. The food is excellent both in the buffet and the three other restaurants. The staff are incredibly... More

My husband and I visited Smuggler's Cove last April (2013) as our first trip together to an all inclusive resort. We picked it because of it's numerous on site activities & it sure didn't disappoint! My husband isn't the "sit on the beach"-type so we needed some options for him! We snorkelled, swam, water-skied, kayaked, played table tennis & volleyball.... More

Lovely place with clean apartments (Butlins type layout) which are kept clean daily and are big enough for a family. The location is beautiful and the sea like bath water. Some of the loungers are not the best but plentiful so you wont have a problem laying down on the beach or around one of the numerous pools. The food... More

We just got back from our holiday. 2 adults and 2 girls, 14 years old. We felt for an all-inclusive resort that the value was very good. The water sports require that you get in line early in the morning. We lined up every day at 6:30am and the facility opens at 8am. For us it became a nice routine.... More

Had the good fortune to have a 2 week stay at the Smugglers Cove in July/August this year. First impressions were excellent, however, on reflection there are areas that could be greatly improved. Will not slate the Hotel as the staff we excellent and could not do enough for you. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable - silly things... More
