Want to say thank you to the entire staff at Smugglers Cove in St. Lucia especially Melanie Remi, Lessie, Vincent at the bar and Neil from front desk. Smugglers was a last minute choice and the... Read more family have no regrets staying at the resort. I use to work for Sandals in Antigua but the hospitality and services was remarkable. I would definitely return and spread the word around about the hotel. You guys really deserve a 5 star. Read less
Just returned two weeks ago this hotel is advertised as 4 star I would rate it a max 3 star the dinning room is far too small for the amount of guests using it, The butter is left out in the open... Read more with no cover on it for young children to pick with there fingers and flies to land on it .The whole of the hotel is in need of a complete refurbishment dirty sunbeds cracked tiles on floors and serving areas. But having said that the staff are really fantastic very helpful and always polite a credit to the Hotel .Not a hotel I will be going back to I can assure you . For me I can spend this kind off money anywhere and have a better experience. Half price for a three star Read less
Stayed from the 15th nov to 25th and what a great time it was. The staff are the first people to meet you and what a great impression they make. This continued for the full 10 days, those guys worked... Read more hard and were always polite, smiling and great to chat with. Rooms are "village" like & named, I forget the name where we were but it was 417 deluxe garden room, it was huge with vaulted ceilings & we were minutes from everything. The food at the buffet was always excellent & you always found something & more to suit your palate, it was very varied every night, usually with a theme. The restaurants were just as good, particularly Cafe Asia & Keith the manager. Great pools dotted around & excellent things going on around the beach, I do recommend the banana boat & kayaks! All in all, no real faults at all & if there were, only minor things that would never ruin your holiday. I do hear there are renovation plans afoot, but would recommend and go back. Read less
Decided upon St Lucia, excellent flights with Virgin and what brilliant cabin crew the whole journey went so smooth .The journey to Smugglers cove unfortunately took 2 hrs because we hit "rush... Read more hour!!!" The hotel is clean, staff friendly but it is not 4 star by any means , we heard whilst there the place is being knocked down and replaced with new next year. This was obvious the place looked tired and so needed repair and I think if they are planning of knocking it down they are not investing in this hotel. The management are failing to get certain areas look presentable like for instant the toilets (female) no locks on and one of the taps was not functioning .The toilets in our room needed upgrading as the cistern did not fill up without assistance,also the locks on the door were very temperamental again upgrading desperately needed Read less
Very hard to complain about anything really. Both staff and catering were faultless. All the staff were so polite, helpful and all new what they were doing. Our accommodation was the basic room, but... Read more it was very clean, with plenty of space and even a nice big telly ! The beach is 100% private, and cleaned everyday. You can easily walk round to Pidgeon Island to see Fort Rodney, worth a look. Local supermarkets and modern shops are walkable or by taxi. Hopefully back again very soon ! Read less
