Calabash is a beautiful resort with rooms which are absolutely gorgeous! The staff is polite, professional and accomodating. I would recommend this resort to anyone who is looking to have a retreat surrounded by nature and great views.
My wife and I picked Calabash Cove after doing a lot of online searching for resorts for couples. We decided that Calabash Cove was a great fit for us and I'm glad we did! The resort is at a beautiful location on the island, and the sunsets at dinnertime can't be beat. We loved the beach and took full advantage of the paddleboards and kayaks. The pool and spa are lovely and relaxing. The food was delicious and we loved the rotating specials. The drinks were stong and tasty. However, the best part was the staff. They were all so kind and easy to talk to, and you can tell they put a lot of effort into making your vacation great.
Calabash is lovely and tranquil. In the north-away from it all. I recommend a couple of days at the beginning of your holiday before you move down south where the snorkelling activities are world class-And the view is the Pitons surround you. I would have liked the breakfast service to be faster and more efficient. The dinner is nice but could be a little more lively…a bit too sleepy for me.
Great time! Exactly what we needed for some much- needed R&R. Resort grounds are beautiful and well-kept. Staff is great - attentive and courteous. Friday Night Street Party in Gros Islet was a blast! Go and experience some local fare if you have a chance. Hope to come back again soon!
I enjoyed a 5 day trip to St. Lucia and stayed at Calabash Cove Resort and Spa. The service was wonderful and the staff were attentive. It was also COVID-19 friendly. The food was delicious! Will be back.
Beautiful resort!! This is a gorgeous property and beach area. Great open air dining overlooking the carribean. The staff was super helpful and kind. Carrot helped us dial in a special tour for my daughter and me. Many perks, including snorkeling gear, and laundry services—we loved our stay here!
Wow!!! What more can I say? We are just back from an amazing trip to Calabash Cove. From the moment we walked in and were greeted with a quick check in and rum punch, we knew Calabash was special. We took the helicopter transfer from the airport and can not recommend it enough. It was the perfect way to start our vacation. We stayed in a water’s edge cottage, which was spectacular.(Of note are all the stairs from the cottages up to the restaurant.) It consisted of three rooms-a sitting area with a couch, chair, tv, and fridge/bar, coffee machine, the bedroom, and the bathroom with the jacuzzi and outdoor shower. Please know only the bedroom has AC. The plunge pool was magnificent, as was the view from it. We enjoyed the separate spaces of the cottage. I did notice the lighting was very dim throughout when trying to get ready for dinner, so I used the provided pedestal mirror and would bring it under a light on the desk in the bedroom. Also, there are no outlets in the bathroom area so when I needed to dry my hair I did so in the bedroom. Overall, I would say out of all of the trips I have taken to the Caribbean over the years, the water’s edge cottage was, by far, my favorite room accomodation. Thank you to Maggie and Janice who kept our cottage clean everyday! The vibe of the resort is quiet and serene, which we loved. Everything is laid back and relaxed. There were times that service moved a little slower than we are used to, but it didn’t take away from our experience. We spent most mornings and early afternoons on the beach where there was always an open chair and shade. We would wander up to the pool bar by mid afternoon. We met so many great people (Kyle and Casey, Maria and Claudia, Mark and Cathy) while hanging in the pool and having a cocktail (or seven!). The wonderful staff who serve you on the beach are also the same ones who are at the pool bar and restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed Talius, Daniel, Treyvon, Ashton, Miguel and all of the other kind people who helped to keep our cocktails refreshed during our time there and were always up for a quick chat. We opted for the all inclusive plan, which is a little out of our wheelhouse. We usually like to venture out when we travel, but this time we decided to try something different after all of the rave reviews and we were happy that we did. The food was delicious and varied enough over the course of our week there that we were able to enjoy something different every day. The specials helped to add to the menu and were always excellent. We would either head up to the restaurant or order room service, which was always very quick. I loved that coffee was served in a French press. How unique! For lunch, we usually ordered at the pool and would sit at the swim up to eat. We always ate dinner at Windsong restaurant and enjoyed the nightly entertainment such as the steel drum player. piano player, singer, and violin player. Some of our favorites were the Calabash eggs benedict, omelet, and a fresh fruit plate in the morning. For lunch we enjoyed the burger, vegetarian baguette, prosciutto and swiss melt, and the ahi tuna. Favorite dinners were lamb, duck, fish of the day and ribeye. The relaxed vibe carried throughout the day and we usually ended up with a quick Bailey’s on the rocks or chilled Sambuca at the bar before the night was over. We did go to the Friday night street party, which was a fun way to soak up the local culture, music, and enjoy local rum punch bought on the street. (Thanks, Chris for the best rum punch!) We also went on an excursion to the sulfur springs and mud bath on a catamaran. The day was torrential downpours the whole time and we ended up leaving early and taking a taxi back, but I am happy we went and had the experience Kevin at the front desk helped to set it up for us. Overall, Calabash was exactly what we needed- quiet, relaxation, and calm, with just a hint of cocktail-induced activity and fun. Thank you so much for an amazing trip, and we hope to be back!…
We just returned from a week's stay at Calabash Cove Resort and Spa. You first notice the almost overwhelming aroma of flowers on the estate. The grounds are so well kept and beautiful. We were immediately met by the staff and offered a much-needed drink. After a few minutes of instructions to ensure our stay was comfortable we were whisked off to the room. We walked into our Heaven on Earth for the next eight nights, and the view took our breath away. We were starving so went to the first of many excellent meals at the resort. The next morning we ordered breakfast in the room which was simple but still amazing. The three-egg omelet was our favorite. We quickly finished up and went down to the beach. It is small but never had to wonder about a chair or anything else. Soon we met Miguel who became one of our favorite faces. He brought us some great drinks throughout our stay. Later we went to the incredible pool. We had lunch at the swim-up bar and more drinks. This was kind of our routine for the week. We did not do all-inclusive because we like to experience the culture outside the resort. All-inclusive would have been ok for me here. The food was great. Every night at dinner there was different live music entertainment. Singing, violin, saxophone, and when they were taking a break the self-playing piano in the lobby took over. We ate at the Sushi on the Deck, Spinnakers, and Naked Fisherman. They were all excellent. Here is the one thing, DONT DRIVE on the island. It is a long drive from the airport on narrow winding roads. We thought we would be brave but returned our rental after driving from the airport. We found a taxi driver named "Nobe" who lives right down the street from the resort and took very good care of us. It is worth the extra cost. One of the week's highlights was the Friday Street Party, find Chris; he has the absolute best rum punch on the island. This trip was so much fun. The best thing about Calabash is that there are only a few rooms. It was so quiet all week and laid back. Total relaxation!! They absolutely cater to your every need.…
We were looking for a smaller resort that didn't have the typical vibe of a Sandals and NO KIDS. Calabash certainly fit that bill. It was very quiet and beautiful and the staff really treated everyone with special care. The location was great for the northern St Lucia activities and a short boat ride to the southern activities. The food was delicious -- we had the breakfast plan and ate many lunches and dinners at the resort as well. We are not big eaters/drinkers, or we would've happily added the all-inclusive. Taxis to town can get expensive, and driving seems pretty crazy, so the only thought we had for improvement was a daily drop off/pick up shuttle to Rodney Bay.
This Resort is great if you want to be away from the city. It is pretty secluded. It has a private beach 🏝 everyone is very accommodating and has everything you would want in a resort. The only thing I didn’t like was the fact they stop serving dinner before 10pm. So when we got back late one night from a party we didn’t have any food. You would have to wait until morning for breakfast. The food was great we didn’t have any complaints about the food. The fruit plates were delicious. They have a good variety for everyone. Come visit Calabash Cove and meet the friendly staff!!
