TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
My husband and I visited Smuggler's Cove last April (2013) as our first trip together to an all inclusive resort. We picked it because of it's numerous on site activities & it sure didn't disappoint... Read more ! My husband isn't the "sit on the beach"-type so we needed some options for him! We snorkelled, swam, water-skied, kayaked, played table tennis & volleyball. Our favourite part was spending lots of time on the Hobicat Catamarans sailing. There were a number of additional activities to do as well, we went parasailing, zip lining (long drive there though) and on a full day sailing trip on a large catamaran to see the Pitons. Highly recommend that day trip! The staff were very helpful and friendly throughout. We received complimentary beverages and snacks upon arrival, which was much needed to get us through the booking in process. It was quite lengthy and all paper. They had computers there, but everything for checking in was done via paper - a very slow process. This would be the only thing I would advise they change since we was there. The food was awesome at the general buffet as well as at the a la carte restaurants. The open air restaurants were darling. The Pina Coladas are SO fresh and delicious, I would fly back just to have one again! Our room was one of 4 in a little cabana type building, a bit of a walk from the main area, but nice & private regardless. The gardens and grounds were beautiful - there was a mango tree right outside our room! Our room was large with a seating area separate from the main bedroom as well as a private patio. The bathroom was large overall, but a touch dated in our room, and the shower pressure wasn't great. There was free wifi, but not in your room. It was in the main area of the resort near the buffet restaurant where the nightly events take place only. Read less
Lovely place with clean apartments (Butlins type layout) which are kept clean daily and are big enough for a family. The location is beautiful and the sea like bath water. Some of the loungers... Read more are not the best but plentiful so you wont have a problem laying down on the beach or around one of the numerous pools. The food was good and lots to choose from so you wont go hungry and the bars are open for most of the day/night. A great place to go for Family or Romance (or both!) Read less
We just got back from our holiday. 2 adults and 2 girls, 14 years old. We felt for an all-inclusive resort that the value was very good. The water sports require that you get in line early in the... Read more morning. We lined up every day at 6:30am and the facility opens at 8am. For us it became a nice routine. We'd grab a couple of chairs, some coffee and chat with those in line. Water skiing goes fast. At 6:30 I was usually number 1 or 2 in line. Water skiing is 3 tries and twice around the bay. The banana boat also goes fast, there are 2 small Hobie Cats that normally have spots open. If you're going skiing then you'll wait in line. There is a nice restaurant on the water where we had breakfast to order every day. No reservation required. The pools are nice, the gym was also nice. We played a little tennis, but it's a bit hot for that. We had a Garden View Room. It was nice as we had our own room with the girls on a fold out couch in their own room. Bathroom is spacious and TV has HDMI hookup if your bringing gadgets. WiFi....The free WiFi is not so good. There are so many users at the WiFi area that it's tough to log on and you can only do limited things. Email and small messages. There are so many people on the server that I often gave up. That said, for $50/week you can have one gadget on the hi-speed wifi in your room. For me it was worth it. It was reasonably fast and no issues. That said, it's one gadget only. After 2 weeks the food gets old, but it was always decent. We found the staff friendly. Some things need upgrading but for the price it's a very nice place. Everyone we ran into felt the same. Every once in a while you see someone really yelling at the staff. You can't please everyone. Plan on spending about $200 RT for the cab to the airport. Bring more bug spray than you think you'll need. They charge $18 U.S. for a small bottle of OFF. Read less
Had the good fortune to have a 2 week stay at the Smugglers Cove in July/August this year. First impressions were excellent, however, on reflection there are areas that could be greatly improved... Read more . Will not slate the Hotel as the staff we excellent and could not do enough for you. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable - silly things need attention like the Bathrooms (need modernisation) Fridges - should be standard in every room. Irons & Hair dryers are on 2 pin plugs when they have three pin sockets as standard. Like I said silly little things. Food was acceptable in every restaurant, can not fault drinks service. Entertainment however was a low point. The Hotel needs to invest in a new sound system and probably new entertainers. The Steel Band on the other hand were excellent. Main Bar closed at 11pm - which for an all inclusive is poor but there was Tommy's Rum Shop - under-utilised needs updating and promoting. The major down side in this modern age was the Wifi - when and if you could connect it was slow & kept bouncing due to the demand on the bandwidth. Yes I know you are on holiday but people still feel the need to go on line No wifi in the rooms only in the main bar area or around the Spa. All in all - would I go back - yes! I have read some terrible review and personally I think they are slightly harsh but then everyone is entitled to their own opinion and people to have holiday nightmares. Oh and re the insect bites any deet based repellant appeared to work - lemongrass not! Read less
My boyfriend and i spent the weekend at Smugglers Cove and we had an amazing time. Our room was clean, the staff friendly and accommodating, tge drinks were on point and the food was excellent. The... Read more range of pools is perfect and the swim up bar is great. Only disappoinments were the range of channels offered by the cable provider and there was no wifi in the room. It was our first time at an all inclusive resort and definitely worth the price. Can't wait to visit again! Read less
