Our whole experience in Dominica was surreal. The island and views are out of this world. The unbelievably gorgeous Calibishie Cove suites only added to our "This can't be real, can it?" mentality.
We stayed in the penthouse 4 nights in early October. Regrettably, it was meant to be 5 nights but our flight to Dominica was cancelled. Once we finally arrived to Calibishie Cove the next morning, Hazel showed us around the room. My husband was speechless and I could only manage a handful of gasps, "oh my!" and lots of sighs. We were in awe. Even though it was past breakfast time, the fantastic staff still delivered a gorgeous spread of fresh fruit, eggs, toast and bacon.
The penthouse is just unreal. The kitchen was perfect for mixing up rum punch, keeping the kubuli cold and the kitchen table was the perfect place to play cards at night when the wind picked up outside. The rooftop deck was fabulous to read, look up at the stars, play cards with some wind protection, but still be in the sun.
The porches are divine. The plunge pool was perfection: chilly, but that's what it is for! We'd be warm from a walk or from driving around, hop in, rinse off in the outdoor shower and plop down on the porch with a cold Kubuli. Perfection! Know that no picture will ever do the room and view justice.
Just as everyone says, the staff is terrific! Everyone was very kind, welcoming, but at the same time they give you plenty of space to just be by yourselves. Help was there whenever we needed it, but we still felt wonderfully, fabulously alone.
The food was amazing and believe the hype: Arl's eggs really are that good! Hazel's cooking is also phenomenal! We were stuffed every morning and night. Most days we would have a light lunch or split something because we were still so full from breakfast. Arl had fabulous suggestions for outside places to eat.
I cannot recommend Calibishie Cove high enough. Book soon because I’ve told every family member and friend about this unbelievable find! I fear the secret may be out very soon.
