“Enjoyable Honeymoon 2012”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

My wife and I loved ourselves at Kalinago beach resort. Our room was the deluxe suite and was well decorated by one of the staff.The entire ambience was so good we agree to return there. Everything,even the food we tried was good. My favorite dish was the cod fish with plantain,while my wife loved the buffalo wings. So we are looking to return to see our home away from home and the hospitable and professional staff. So if anyone is thinking of a place to get away, consider this resort.

This is the second time we visited Kalinago. The staff are the best, always friendly and go out of their way to make your time with them perfect. The food, the hotel, the beach, the drinks...doesn't get any better.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are beach front.

Reading some reviews continues to convince me that some people constantly look for flaws rather than looking at the many plus points of being on a delightful Island with a developing tourist industry. The menu is simple (are not all the menus at all the restaurants?) and is always an indicator of good food; the service was faster than most of the places where we have dined over the last two weeks and the tuna was hot and served with an excellent ginger and lime sauce. Coffee was good and overall the bill reasonable at EC$ 160 for two

Given some people want the negatives: the dining room has walls of dark painted walls - and the tuna had bones in it!

My wife and I have just returned from a short break at the Kalinago. We loved the room, which was clean and spacious. The beds were very comfortable too. We ate in the restaurant twice while we were there, and meals were tasty and well presented, though not always precisely what was set out on the menu. Morne Rouge beach is just a few yards away, which is clean and lovely to swim in. It's a pleasant walk away from the Grande Anse beach area, which as well as a quite beautiful beach has a shopping centre and and restaurants. You can catch the fantastic dollar buses from there into and back from just about anywhere on the island.

For all these good points though, the Kalinago has some noticeable flaws which detract from the overall package. They have a lovely open-air bar between pool and beach, but for some bizarre reason they insist on playing loud music in it practically all the time, and not nice laid-back reggae which would have been OK (if a little less loud), but sometimes harsh Dancehall-type sounds, 90s R&B divas, full-on stuff from the 80s and so on. I have very wide tastes, but every time we went down there for a drink we would be forced away within a few minutes. It wasn't just us.....the bar was just about always empty or had one or two die-hards. This, I think, is symptomatic of a hotel which just doesn't get the needs of its guests, doesn't try to understand them and therefore doesn't give them what they want, but what the staff as individuals think is right. Guests therefore end up spending time and money away from the Kalinago, which can't be good for the business. I think the hotel management need to give some serious thought to this for the future.

The other flaw became apparent at the weekend during our stay. Morne Beach is, as I said before, beautiful and calm, and the Kalinago sits centrally on the beach. Close by, though, are areas of land which front the beach which are used by locals for a range of functions, from church get togethers to parties. I haven't a problem with that at all. It's great to see. The events can be very noisy though, which is outside the control of the hotel. Saturday was OK, but on Sunday there was a party which went on all afternoon until late into the evening, and the music to this was incredibly loud. The land the parties are held on is adjacent to the right hand side of the Kalinago, when looking from the beach. It must have been very annoying for guests at that end of the hotel. Fortunately, we always travel with ear plugs, so we were able to blot out worst of the noise. As I said, this is outside the control of the hotel, but they need to acknowledge that this might be a problem for some of their guests at weekends. I asked before we went for a quiet room, as I had read on Trip Advisor about noise problems, but was told by the hotel that all their rooms were very quiet. A bit disingenuous perhaps.

I was wavering about whether to plump for 3 out of 5, but am giving a score of 4, as I think this is fundamentally a good hotel, though it could be much better.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the restaurant end.

This was our second time staying at the Kalinago, having spent a week here last Jan. as well. Kalinago is a 3 star hotel, basic, but very clean and comfortable with a laid back, friendly atmosphere. What makes this hotel special is it's location. It's directly on Morne Rouge beach (it was exactly 50 steps from the patio of our ground floor room to the beach) which has soft white sand and calm, warm water located in a beautiful tropical bay surrounded by hills. There is little else on this bay which is about a half mile long so the beach is very empty. There are plenty of trees on the beach providing shade and the hotel has plenty of lounge chairs for the beach. The hotel also has a nice sized pool and a small bar overlooking the beach. All 29 rooms have small balconies facing west, with views of the sea and sunset. The rooms are large with a nice sized bathroom with an excellent shower. The rooms have a flat screen tv, a safe, refrigerator and coffee maker. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We arrived at 7 AM and our room was available for us to use. On the other end our plane wasn't until evening and they allowed us to remain in the room until 3 PM. The down side to its being so isolated is the food situation.The closest restaurants are at least a fifteen minute walk which includes walking up a steep hill or a $10 taxi ride. The hotel does have a restaurant, also overlooking the beach, where the food is hit or miss. You can also order food at the bar all day. The best restaurant in the area, The Beach House, provides a free shuttle service to their restaurant. There is also a well stocked supermarket in Grand Anse, a 20 minute walk away where we bought drinks and food items to have breakfast in our room. All in all we really enjoyed the informal, relaxed atmosphere and enjoyed our stays here very much.

Room Tip: The rooms nearer the lobby and bar/pool area get better wifi than the rooms at the far end of the ho...

This a a small quiet hotel on the best beach on the island. The staff were very friendly and helpful, excellent bar area but very quiet in the evening. ( Crystal - liked the chalk board with the cocktail of the day!)
Breakfast - Fresh fruit, coffee & toast and what ever you ordered was cooked fresh. We ate at the restaurant a couple of evenings and again fresh local food.
The rooms and the hotel is very clean, beach towel available every day and plenty of sun beds. With a beach like, Morne Rouge & Grand Anse beach a short walk away, you are not in your room much!

I stayed here for two weeks with friends, the hotel is right on a fabulous beach, hotel clean and very friendly, bar staff make great cocktails and were very welcoming. I was very happy to also find out that canoeing and snorkels etc were included in the price. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay.

Room Tip: Have ground floor if possible it just a skip and hop to the beach.
