My problem with this place was the lack of food at certain times... large gaps between lunch and dinner though there is a tea time.... the bars do not open until 10am and close at 2am.... the food started off a little rough on sunday but as the week went on it got much better.... towels were not readily available...

We have just returned from a week at Smugglers Cove and have to say that it has been one of the best family holidays that we have experienced. We travelled to the resort with our 2 sons, - aged 6 and 13 and felt that the resort offered activities to suit both ages. The accommodation was ideal as we were... More

We just got back and stayed 3 nights at Smugglers Cove in July 2014. Our family had a great time. We found the food to be really good, and the beach and pools were even better. The rooms could use an upgrade, but everybody was so tired after a long day in the sun...the only thing that really mattered was... More

We stayed for a week in July 2014. The facilities need a lot of improvement. Our friends had an ant infestation in their bath tub, and our air conditioner leaked to the point of soaking two towels on the ground along with our luggage. Our shower only had burning hot water (or cold water with no pressure) and this was... More

If you like sharing your accommodation with cockroaches, rats, millions of Mosquitos and toads this is the place to be! Hotel staff seem lethargic and cheesed off, something is obviously going down there! Needs a little visit from the department of health on the island as even though the food is nice, I have travelled back with food poisoning after... More

I wasn't expecting this hotel to be great after reading the reviews on here. First impressions were poor, the drive from the airport is long and bumpy and the huge drive from the road to the reception didn't make matters any better. After being given a rum cocktail in the hot reception area we were taken on a golf buggy... More

We decided to get the helicopter back when leaving as this only take 15 mins and i would recommended it as it is the perfect way to end your... More

Excellent all inclusive resort, several water sports included in price. Three specialty restaurants, Asian is the best. Main restaurant has a great selection of tasty meals, always something for everyone. Some parts do need a makeover, mostly cosmetic, nothing major. The rooms are all terraced bungalows. Staff really friendly and helpful, apart from the odd few, the reception staff need... More

The hotel is tired and needs updating. We had a garden view suite (paid upgrade) and the standard was poor. The sofa bed was dirty and I wouldn't sleep in so I didn't put my son in it. Instead we all slept in one large bed. We upgraded to get the extra space and bed but should t have bothered.... More
