Having just returned from 10days holiday at the Smugglers, 2 - 13th November, I have to express my and my husbands pleasure at staying at such a lovely hotel. The staff were excellent, mentioning especially Michelle in the Cove and Chrissy,Sadie and Davida in the Waterside who made our meals in the resturants great, especially ending the meal with the...

My wife (Donna) & I stayed at the Smugglers Cove Resort & Spa between 28/10/2011 – 11/11/2011 Firstly let me start by saying that if you have any worries or concerns about this hotel or St Lucia in general - don't!!! Both are absolutely wonderful. HOTEL - The hotel is set in 65 acres (I believe) of well manicured and... More

The whole site appears tired and shabby and now has building work going on from 8am to 5pm with some plant equipment running 24h. Toilets in public areas were filthy, no locks on doors and the floors were wet/puddled most of the time. Rooms were clean and tidy but as basic as we expected and the outside "terraces" were just...

Normally I don't post reviews, if I could I would give this place no ratings but Tripadvisor only allows a 1 star for Terrible. I did read the other bad reviews but just wanted to give this place a chance. From the start when we arrived we were shown to our rooms. Rooms was hot and A/C was not cold.... More

Eighteen of us just returned from a great vacation at Smugglers Cove. After reading the reviews we weren't sure what to expect, but after all we were going to St. Lucia for under $1200.00. We weren't disapointed. St. Lucia is a beautiful island, friendly people and Smugglers Cove turned out to be just fine. It was the first time only... More
