My wife and I spent 8 days in the Calibishie Cove penthouse. We lucked out and were the only ones staying at Calibishie Cove that week, so we had the whole place to ourselves. The accommodations were very nice with a panoramic view that is breathtaking. Situated on a mountainside with a wonderful view of the rainforest and the Atlantic Ocean, you almost feel like you’re on a deserted island. Initially, I was a bit concerned about the lack of air-conditioning, but the cool constant breeze made it very comfortable. Each night my wife and I opened all of the windows and doors, and enjoyed the sounds of waves crashing on the nearby rocks and tree frogs. We did a lot of diving, hiking and sightseeing, and by the end of the day the private plunge pool felt great on our tired bodies. And lounging on the comfortable furniture and hammock on the huge deck was a real treat.
We had breakfast and dinner in our room three times. The food was good, and Peaches and Keisha were fun to talk to. The housekeeping was immaculate. Each day we returned to a super clean, tidy, restocked room. The on-site manager was rarely around, which made getting information or scheduling tours more difficult, but she did leave us her phone number in case we needed to contact her. A local cell phone was provided, but if you need more time than was left on the phone you have to find a place to reload it yourself. However, it was not hard to find places to do that.
Be advised that there is no elevator and the stairway to the penthouse is narrow and steep. If you have difficulty navigating stairs, access may be difficult.
Overall, our stay was wonderful. What a beautiful, relaxing place!
