From the moment we arrived and we were greeted by the fabulous Reagan to the minute we left nothing was too much trouble for all the amazing members of staff at Calabash, they really make you feel welcome and the level of service from everyone is second to none. There is a real air of calm at this hotel, the gardens are pristine and the beach is so peaceful, on the couple of days we did venture out we were always happy to return to the calm surroundings. We stayed on a half board basis and really could not have eaten anymore if we had wanted too, the breakfast on our patio everyday was a real treat and the evening meals at Rhodes were always beautifully presented and delicious. Our room was modern and had everything you could possibly want in it, there really is so much attention to detail and thoughtful items in the rooms, and was always kept spotless. We have been lucky enough to visit alot of Caribbean Islands and stayed in many hotels and have never returned anywhere as we like to try different places but here is somewhere we have seriously already discussed returning to. Thank you to all the Calabash team ! Read less

There are some rare places that really get it when it comes to luxury and Calabash certainly does. We stayed four nights and would have been very happy to stay longer.

There are some rare places that really get it when it comes to luxury and Calabash certainly does. We stayed four nights and would have been very happy to stay longer. About a dozen or more two story villas and larger family ones are set in a beautiful, lush garden by a bay. We had a ground floor unit with a nice front patio with easy chairs, and a table with chairs for dining. The good size living room had a very comfy sofa and an easy chair with a very contemporary light wood cupboard for the fridge, coffee maker, long desk, etc. and a TV. There was a bottle of rum punch and they did not skimp on the rum, plus a jar with delicious cookies that were perfect for dunking in our morning coffee. The bedroom, also a decent size, had a really comfy bed and tons and tons of cupboard and drawer space, and another TV. On each bedside table was a multi point charging plug. The bathroom was huge with double sinks and a large shower area. There were waffle bath robes and lots of thick towels. A sliding door opened from the bedroom onto a totally private back patio with a good size plunge pool, outdoor bathtub and shower, two chaise lounges and a table with chairs for private dining. Whoever designed and furnished this place did a perfect job and they did not skimp on the quality of the furniture and fixtures. Also the air conditioning works really well. Breakfast can be in your villa but we always went to the pool restaurant where the staff and food were wonderful. We had dinner all four nights in the main restaurant but there is also a Japanese Fusion one. There are daily dinner specials and lots and lots of choices to satisfy any taste. Absolutely everything, amuse bouches, appetizers, mains and desserts were delicious - no fabulous. One night I had the absolute best duck I’ve ever had. The wine list is comprehensive enough and very fairly priced. Here too the staff are wonderful, the service efficient but not rushed, and they interact with you depending on your own personality. Wait staff can make or break any meal and here they definitely make it. Read less

My wife and I spent a week at the Calabash. This Relais & Chateaux gem cannot be missed. It has what one would expect from a luxury resort but what really sets it apart are the wonderful staff. I have traveled extensively in the Caribbean and often refer to the “Caribbean cool” that we often feel from locals and employees. That is, they often seem to not be truly invested in the service industry, and they often present a lackluster attitude. Not so at the Calabash. Every single staff member was invested in insuring that my wife and I truly enjoyed our experience at the hotel. Highly recommended. If you’re visiting Grenada this is the place to stay. Read less
