We have just returned from Smugglers Cove, due to some negative reviews we were a little dubious prior to our trip. We were pleasantly surprised by what the resort had to offer. Where do I start? The food was the best we have had at any previous carribean resort. Lovely spa if you wish any massages or beauty treatments, plenty... More

I had already read a few reviews before going so I was aware of some previous issues. Do not get me wrong, I did have a nice holiday and not any great complaints. The staff I found to be very friendly and good at their jobs, particularly Princess, Vince and Javin. The resort in itself is like other people have... More

So your thinking of going here? If you have kids and want Butlins and hi de hi in St Lucia go for it. The food in all the restaurants is this venue it's best feature. However beware that you will be eating with the local birds eating off your table or feral cats pestering for food. The rooms are basic... More

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

My family had a fantastic two weeks at this resort! The grounds beautiful, marvellous staff (so friendly). water sports all included which allowed us to try out the water skiing, banana boat, kayaking, snorkling all free of charge. Several restaurants, our favourite was the waterside which catered the local food along with a menu suitable for children, other restaurants included... More
