Loved the HotelPosted Feb 4, 2014
Loved the hotel. I received a warm greeting as soon as I stepped out of my taxi. I was then whisked away to my room where there was a snack waiting for me to ensure that I had something to eat incase I missed dinner. I was then told that I had been upgraded to a suite with a private swimming pool. The staff were amazing and very helpful. I loved my stay and would be happy to return to this hotel.

Great Time at the CalabashPosted Nov 1, 2013
Pros: Our room was nice and the surprise of ending up in a suite with a private pool was a treat. Spa facility gorgeous - looks over the bay.
Cons: Couldn't have been better
Location: Might be better off taking cabs or tours. Minimal signage made driving an adventure
Lovely facility with helpful staff and fabulous meals

Fulfilled all expectations!Posted May 29, 2012
Pros: personalized service, attention to detail.
Location: Close to the airport and True Blue campus of St. George's University. Right on the water - gorgeous!
We arrived at the hotel after some unfortunate flight problems, and every member of the staff from the receptionist to our waiter at dinner that evening was aware of what had delayed us. The staff was overwhelmingly helpful, kind, and friendly. This hotel has several personal touches, from the personal greetings from the staff to having breakfast served in our room in the morning. It's a quick trip from the airport and near the University and local shopping, making it ideal if you're visiting students or don't want to travel far to your destination. There's a private beach with free boat rentals, and at dinner we had a great performance by a steel drum band. Delicious food and nice spa. Sometimes service was a little slow (during lunch especially), but you're on vacation so relax! The islanders live a slower pace and take time to indulge in pleasantries and kindness, so welcome it. Overall a great stay.

Calabash beauty set on tranquil sandsPosted Jan 9, 2012
Pros: The breakfast were just heaven, and the tranquility soothed my furrowed brow
Cons: Dining in the evening was restricted to the Rhodes restaurant, which although had regular one-man entertainment lacked buzz.
Location: The best! Lovely tropical gardens placed on a good beach close to St Georges and several restaurants.
Beautiful setting, small complex of 30 2-layer dwellings set around a lovely tropical garden and stretch of beach. The atmosphere is tranquil and suited to couples or families with grown up children as there are no facilities for youngsters. However, this makes for perfect ambience for couples who can relax without the usual hubbub of a normal resort. The beach restaurant serves wonderful food, but closes at 6pm, and the length from time of order to serving can be up to 45 minutes with no service for drinks unless one asks. The Rhodes restaurant undoubtedly produces wonderful dishes, many of which are mouth-watering, but the dining comes at a heavy price. The chef can conjur up any demands, more simple dishes at perhaps a lesser rate, but the atmosphere suffers from lack of attendance, probably due to the cost. Locally and within 10 minutes taxi are an array of fantastic Caribbean restaurants, typically BB Crabbacks in St Georges marina, or Patricks nearby, both whom serve authentic West Indian dishes at a reasonable price. The pool at the hotel is set aside and is rather small but perfectly formed, is quite private set within its gated walls, but can capture the heat slightly due to this. The gym within this area is air-conditioned and about the only exercise available (apart from the PADI school) where one can work off the excesses of frequent dining. Breakfast is normally included, and served on ones own balcony by a maid who cooks each day with a large smile!

loved it!Posted Dec 15, 2008
We loved our time at the Calabash. We stayed in the "Morning Glory" suite # 14. It was spacious and clean and the private pool was the b-e-s-t! Breakfast made for us on the patio every morning was another incredible feature. The hotel restaurants were pricey (most expensive cheeseburger I ever ate at the beach restaurant; $$$$ for 2 desserts at the Rhodes restaurant) but the other amenities more than made up for that. The folks at Scubatech (Sabine and Carston and Kate) are super nice if you're doing a scuba or snorkling outing, or even if you're just borrowing their gear to go out on your own. The Atlantic ocean and all the beautiful sailboats were steps away from our suite. Camelia at the reception desk was as sweet as can be. Everyone was friendly and tried so hard to be accomodating to our every need. Oh, and the woman who gave us our massages was phenomenal!

The land crabs are very cute, the ants all over the room - not so cute!Posted Oct 30, 2006
Upon arriving at the Calabash I was very happy. The grounds are very pretty, the beach is secluded, and I loved the fact that I was having my own "villa." I quickly realized that these things were the only good things there. The service was less than par to even cheaper hotels. The maid did not clean certain things in the room that seemed obvious to me and there was expired food and drinks in the minibar. The worst part of the whole experience was the infestation of ants in my villa. They were everywhere! On top of this, I was expected to get rid of them myself or tell housekeeping myself. I'm sorry, I thought the maid should be looking for things like millions of ants all over the place! What's worse is that when I told the owner (I think she was the owner) she had the audacity to ask me if I had been leaving opened food around! I definitely explained to her that I wasn't raised in a barn, thank you very much. The land crabs that pop out all over the lawn at night are very cute, but they are unfortunately the best part of this hotel.
