St. Lucia has always been highly recommended by many friends as a must see destination but a bit higher priced than we can usually budget for our yearly vacation. As we were browsing our options Smuggler's Cove came up within our preferred price range, so being wary of such an inexpensive price we read every review available. Noting that most complaints were about minor things(in our opinion) concerning the need for updated rooms etc, we decided it was certainly worth the risk based on the good reviews that were also posted.
We have just returned and have absolutely nothing to complain about. We found our room to be completely satisfactory as far as a decent bed to sleep in, hot water for shower, potable tap water and then set out to enjoy the rest of the resort and Island. The food was amazing every meal! Service was excellent the entire resort was kept very clean, very nice beach and many pools. We would most definitely return to Smuggler's Cove so we could enjoy St Lucia again at a very affordable price. If these types of resorts had to keep spending thousands on renovations to please the snobs that complain about cosmetic issues then they would have to charge the high prices of the other more elaborate resorts. Everything was perfectly acceptable as it is and actually does look exactly like every picture we saw previous to our trip.Cheerz to the great staff that worked very hard everyday to make sure everyone was happy! all other guests we spoke with also agreed that we went there to enjoy the weather and culture and not inspect corners in rooms.
