Myself and my husband spent our honeymoon at Smugglers Cove. We stayed for 2 weeks at the beginning of June. Before visiting we'd read lots of mixed reviews about the resort and weren't really sure what we would find when we got there. We were pleasantly surprised because it was everything that we could have hoped for! We stayed in... More

Like many others we read Trip Advisor before going on this holiday and had some concerns. Previous holidaymakers had reported rude staff, poor quality rooms, ants, poor food. What did we find? The real magic of Smugglers Cove is its staff. They are amazing. Always smiling and just so helpful. Their main aim is to ensure holidaymakers have just the... More

Me & my husband came here on our honeymoon on 12th may. We had a nice and relaxing stay here. Great first impressions of the well kept grounds. We stayed in a deluxe garden view suite, they decorated our bed with petals and put champagne on ice next to our bed, was such a nice surprise and they made reservations... More

This is not a five-star resort and doesn't claim to be. For what it is iwhich is a 3/4 star all-inclusive family resort it offers outstanding value for money. My wife and I visited as part of a 'large group' family holiday in the organisation of which we had played no part. We were concerned me of by some of... More

The one thing i loved about that is hotel is it felt Caribbean !!!. Yes the rooms are fairly basic , but clean. 4 out of 3 of the restaurants are "open style" and yes so you get the wild birds and the lovely hotel cats wondering in at times. The food is excellent and the local caribbean dishes are... More

I had been to the Cove about six years ago and the hotel has come down in quality since then. It could use some cosmetic fixes. Fences missing boards, chipped tiles etc. The food was good but i would stay away from the seafood al la carte restaurant. It wasn't bad but if it's going to be a waterside grill... More

Booked smugglers despite being apprehensive following the mixed reviews that we had read on trip adviser. However any worries we had were unfounded. We arrived in st lucia and we're quickly met and greeted at the airport by a Virgin rep, the ride from the airport to smugglers can take up to an hour and it is at times on... More

The pools and kids facilities are good but beyond that nothing impressive impressive about this resort. Greasy stodgy food, dirty rooms, staff that didn't want to be there, hotel management that were invisible. Had to change room after finding a suspect bug in luggage that I showed to staff. No apology, no discussion other that a new room two doors... More

Everything great and to hand, nothing too great a distance away - 5mins to anywhere (and we're in our 70s so not exactly fast walkers). Beautiful pools, spoiled for choice with the food, lovely gardens and superior garden room more than adequate. All the staff were friendly and helpful even the gardeners, nothing was too much for them. Maids did... More
