“Relaxing holiday in a special place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

Just back from 2 weeks at this beautiful, quiet, well managed hotel which offers the best of everything including amazing staff one and ALL who cannot do enough for you!
It was our first visit and we were relieved to find that it lived up to all the excellent Tripadvisor reviews and all our expectations. The family greeting on arrival and on leaving was a nice touch.

The rooms are comfortable and breakfast served on the patio each morning was delicious (the fruit platter was huge!) thanks due to Elizabeth, Linda and Nikki.

Lunch at Mark B's beach restaurant was always a treat with a great choice prepared to order by Mark and his team. Thanks to Kermisha the always smiling and friendly waitress who patiently took our order most days and all the other waiting staff. Chef Mark came over to diners to make sure they were happy with their choices and offered to prepare a favourite not on the menu if required. The Bash Bar was also very efficient making sure your glass was never empty! (Thanks Herbie and the other bar staff)

Evening meals in the Rhodes Restaurant were all delicious (never managed to get through all 3 courses in one sitting!) and expertly delivered to table by all the waiting staff. George at the Restaurant Bar is a delightful character - best Gin and Tonic in Grenada!

The hotel is set in lovely gardens and the garden staff are happy to answer any questions you may have. There are plenty of comfortable sun beds on the beach and by the pool and we were pleased to see that there were no pre breakfast trips for towel reservations!

Unfortunately there too many wonderful staff to mention by name but thank you all for your friendliness and good service during our stay. Hopefully it will not be too long before we return again.

Room Tip: We had Room 4 (Westside Suite) which although smaller than other suites (who stays in their room all...

Dear SueJohn4748,

Thank you for your wonderfully detailed review - It is absolutely fantastic.

What a pleasure it was having you here. It seemed as though you were part of the Calabash family almost instantly.

Thank you for your lovely comments. I am so glad that Linda, Elizabeth, Nikki, George, Kimisha and the rest made it such a special trip. As we like to say here at Calabash, nothing is too much, and we will continue with this outlook, so that all our guests always feel comfortable and relaxed.

We look forward to seeing you again soon,

Adele

The perfect week away. Leo, Adele and the family's passion for the Calabash is infectious. From the gorgeous breakfast on the balcony to canapes and cocktails at sundown, Calabash is the most indulgent, peaceful and gorgeous week away on an idyllic slice of the sleepy Grenadan coastline

Once again another perfect holiday at The Calabash. This is our 5th year now and it just gets better, although nothing really changes drastically that's all part of the charm. Everyone of the Calabash crew feels like a friend and it's great to have a yearly catch up. Can't wait to return.

Just finished our second holiday at Calabash, can't recommend this place highly enough, especially for couples looking for peace & quiet (and sunshine of course!)

The food on site is fantastic, breakfast served on your balcony, lunch served at the beach (Chef Mark is happy to oblige with special requests) Evening meals served in the Rhodes restaurant are beautifully presented, and taste even better than they look.

The beach is quiet & peacefull as is the pool area.
The suites a spacious, clean, finished to a high standard, & even have UK plug sockets which is extremely handy!
We stayed on an all inclusive basis, absolutely everything is included (cocktails, premium spirits etc, which is not always the case elsewhere) and your glass is never empty!

By far the best feature of the calabash is the staff. Every member of the team make it their goal to ensure you have a wonerful holiday, always polite, courteous and happy to help. We really enjoyed chatting with all of them, when it's time to go home, you feel you are saying goodbye to great friends (we miss you Rhondi!)


Would definitely go back again...

Room Tip: Nothing really, they all look great.

This was our Golden Wedding celebration. We had been to Grenada before but decided to spoil ourselves at the Calabash,and we did. The Rhodes restaurant splendid, but you need a rest occasionally from all that amazing food so B and B is best. The breakfast served to our own terrace was delicious. We walked across the grass to the beach for a pre-breakfast swim and lazed the days away. Bird watching, turtle watching, snorkelling, visits to St.George, and very friendly welcome everywhere.
Highly recommended

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have better access

From the moment I arrived and thru my departure, Calabash Hotel and its staff truly accommodated our amazing stay. I had stayed just up the road for several nights and wanted to try a different and more luxurious hotel. My mom and I stumbled upon this one . . . . and boy did we enjoy it!

I find that a PROS and CONS list works well in describing resorts so here goes . . . .

PROS: Security gate, then I was greeted by a beautiful smiling staff member.
The Grounds were immaculate.
Super FRIENDLY AND ATTRACTIVE STAFF
Very serene and secluded spa/ massage overlooking the bay. I really wish I had experienced a massage in that studio.
Staff, mgmt. went above and beyond the services they provide. If you have a question or concern, they tended to it immediately.

Food = Some of the best food I have ever eaten. Apparently, by world renown Chef Rhodes.
And speaking of food--along with your stay, breakfast each morning is including on your very own porch! Elegant table setting, fine cutlery and fresh hot meal that's made in the very unit you live in(not transported across the grounds from a main kitchen). A very nice daily touch to the vacation, I must say!
Nice sandy beach to walk along, lie out, build sand castles, etc.
Good water sports selection along with a SCUBA diving center!

CONS
Basic gym for the Avid gym rat but since WE all are creative, one should be able to come up with a good workout. ;-)
Mosquitos at night-- but you're in the tropics --just reach for the bug spray if you are a delicate flower. I chose not to and paid an itchy price.



Without reservation I would highly recommend staying here while exploring Grenada.
Thanks Calabash . . . . we loved our stay!!

Room Tip: If you have the doors open during the dusk hours, be sure to have your unit sprayed or use "bug...

Dear hello_travelaround,

We absolutely loved having you both with us and we were so impressed your sense of adventure.

Thank you for the lovely review. Your kind words are very motivating and help us to improve everything we do at Calabash. You are quite right to mention our wonderful staff who constantly go the extra mile and make us very proud.

I'm very glad you brought up the mosquitos. As you rightly mention, we do live on a tropical island and biting insects are part of the environment. However we are researching and implementing new methods of mosquito control which seem to be working. However we do still have insect repellent available, just in case!

We hope to see you again soon.
