TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Smugglers. The people working there went above & beyond to please all of the guests. They also spoke great English! The things we enjoyed most were: The Pool Bar... Read more (adults only....yah!) was nice & quiet, only a few people in it...it gave us a well needed break from the hectic GTA. They have 7 pools there & we saw at least 5 of them, but this Pool Bar was our favorite. We also enjoyed the Italian restaurant. The food on the buffet was good & there was lots of choice & I am a picky eater. Standard of hygiene in food areas was exceptional. We took 1 day trip; going on a catamaran we saw a volcano site (this was impressive) & you could smell sulphur & see hot springs in the geysers. This is why there is some darker (Black sand) in St Lucia, because of the volcano eruption many years ago. (according to the guide) It was a bit of a long bus ride from the airport; but the scenery was nice. Homes are on stilts built into mountainsides. Very beautiful. I WOULD GO BACK IN A HEARTBEAT, especially at this time of year. I would recommend this trip to anyone. We had entertainment at the hotel, which was adequate, a couple singing at Christmas & the Smugglers duo another nite or 2. But for those who need a lot of night life this is not the place. Read less
This was our first ever trip to the Caribbean and was a little anxious after reading some of the reviews about smugglers cove. We stayed for 14 nights over the new year. Firstly as many reviews say... Read more the ride from airport to resort is long (especially after a long flight from uk) with windy roads and if you suffer from travel sickness this may be a problem. I can strongly recommend the transfer back by helicopter it was fantastic , only taking 13 minutes and worth every penny only wish it lasted a bit longer. The resort itself was lovely situated in very pretty grounds well maintained, yes needs a little up dating here and there but nothing interfered with our memorable break. We ate at all restaurants and the food was amazing. Everyone catered for. We never had a problem with getting a table in any of the restaurants. If I had one complaint it would be that it would be nice to be able to get a snack i.e crisps or peanuts late afternoon but this is only a small complaint as we had to buy them from on site shop. We stayed in the 100s suite which was very clean, not one insect seen or visiting lizard (which I was very worried about as I have a great fear of them). The bathroom was a little dated but constant hot water and cleaned every day. Bed was very comfortable with clean fresh linen and towels every day. Garden suite has a separate room for child to sleep on sofa bed but not very private as has glass door partition with wooden slats either side. Fridge was a little noisy so we unplugged it as we weren't using it. water sports were great and enjoyed very much by our teenage son. All the staff including waiters/waitresses, gardeners, drivers, reception staff, bar staff were all very happy, smiley and courteous, not one rude member amongst them. Big thanks to Chester for supplying my husband with his beer and my banana cocktails (excellent made with amaretto !!!) Entertainment very good with no pressure to join in. The swimming pools were cleaned daily even by staff getting in and wiping around the edges. Sun loungers are a little tired but with nice fresh towels over them it wasn't really a problem. Overall we had a fantastic two week holiday and would definitely go back, hope it's not changed too much just maybe a little renovation here and there. Read less
We read a lot of the revues on tripadvisor for Smugglers Cove and we were so upset by some of the bad reports we tried to cancel our stay ! Thankfully Voyage Prive laid our fears to rest and we... Read more travelled on 4 Dec 2014. We stayed in a garden view suite and Ok the bathroom was a little tired and the shower not the best but everything else about the resort was excellent. We were not troubled by ants, cockroaches or even Mosquitoes and we saw staff spraying the grounds daily for any nasties. The food was of a good standard and although sometimes repeated (over the 2 weeks period we stayed) there was always so many different choices that it never became boring. The staff were excellent, not a bad member in the entire team. The pools were clean and well maintained (and the quiet pool was amazing, very little or no noise) as were the manicured grounds. I believe the new owners intend on updating the entire resort, which it does need but I would highly recommend this as a holiday destination. Our main concern at the time of booking was that of us being a same sex couple....... NO WORRIES. NO TROUBLE Read less
I'm writing this review as I have just read about a stolen I phone an clothing ect. Well my experience at this hotel was the complete opposite regarding honesty. We stupidly left the safe key in the... Read more safe with all of our money 2 phones including an I phone passports bankcards ect ect. The maid saw it reported it to security who were called to lock the safe and take key to manager. Nothing was taken or touched. It would have been our fault if anything had been taken but these staff here are hard workin and honest I'm my eyes. We have been to this resort twice both times had a fab time and will be going again this year. It's a lovely hotel with wonderful staff fab food and from our experience very honest staff and management. Nothing but good for us when stayin here love this place. Roy and mags! Read less
