We had a house in France for ten years but sold it five years ago. Since then we have travelled widely, particularly in the summer. Our golden rule has been 'never go back' but we have met our match! Normally we would seek the single out a member of staff but that would be unfair. Everyone was lovely, very genuine... More

The gardens are divine, the beach is great, suites are large and comfy and breakfast is excellent. No doubt a top notch hotel, especially by Caribbean standards.This could be in Thailand easily. BUT: There is one big downside! Smoking is not allowed anywhere, except on the balcony. Now, come on: It s in the Caribbean and a beach hotel. Yet... More

We have just returned from our fifth stay at The Calabash. It is difficult to express how excellent this hotel is. Paradise is a good word, also all the staff go out of their way to make your stay so memorable we could not pick out any particular person. The accommodation is luxurious, the food amazing, both on the beach... More

Calabash is a little oasis in Grenada. From the warm and welcoming staff, to the world-class restaurant, everything at Calabash is done first-class. The villas associated with the property are stunning and offer some of the best views on the island. Although the food is delicious and the setting is gorgeous, the best part of Calabash is its wonderful staff!

Our room had a small porch where we watched the baby cats eat the food we gave them. The kittens where super controlled. There was a shuffle board game out on the lawn and trips to go snorkeling and scuba-diving and tubing! One receptionist knew how to carve pictures on a calabash and made one for us, it was gorgeous!... More

This is a very special place to stay. Friendly and helpful staff. We had a suite close to the beach which made a quick dip so easy. The breakfast was prepared to order by our maid and was superb. The grounds are well laid out. The receptionist arranged a trip to a beach to see turtles laying eggs. The beach... More

Returned home recently after my sixth visit and have just booked for March 2016. As always wonderful holiday, nothing is too much trouble for any of the Garbutt family and staff and the welcome really genuine.

From pick up at the airport until our departure we could not have been more warmly welcomed. The restaurant in the evening was superb. Food, location, wine, staff I could not wish for better. I prefer a breakfast in restaurant (how are you meant to know what you want the day before) but that might just be me.

John F, I am so pleased you enjoyed your time here and we are glad you enjoyed the food and found the staff so accommodating. Having breakfast on your private balcony is a unique feature of Calabash, and it is unfortunate that you preferred a more traditional setting, however I do hope that you enjoyed the quality of the food...

Lovely hotel, spotless comfy rooms with lots of thoughtful touches, top notch food in the restaurant and beach bar, excellent friendly staff - nothing was too much trouble. We had a wonderful couple of weeks to totally relax and chill out. Thoroughly recommended.
