“Perfect location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

We stayed in the penthouse suite for a week and the first thing that struck us was the amazing views. With a veranda on 3 sides of the suite we had the jungle on our left and hodges beach sea views front and right. The breeze from the ocean kept the room cool (it has no glass, only shutters) and you could fall asleep with only the sounds of crickets and the ocean.

The penthouse also had a roof terrace for sunbathing and even more stellar views (especially at night).

The food was nice although the menu could of had a little more variety as I was getting a little fed up of the few dishes that were on offer by the end of the week. However the local village of Calibishie had some lovely restaurants including Carols Cafe and Coral Reef.

The staff were lovely and let me mix up the evening meals for a bit of variety. Would definitely stay here again.

Just returned from spending 9 days at the Calibishie Cove in Dominica. We stayed in the penthouse of the bed and breakfast and the views were magnificient. The ocean breezes were amazing and kept the bugs away. No air conditioning there but definitely not necessary. The penthouse was very roomy and clean.
The breakfasts and dinners were served daily to our room by the two amazing cooks, Johanna and Peaches. Each cook has their own flair and serves local quisine to your tastes and liking and times to meet your schedule. The entire staff was exceptional and went out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Our housekeeper, Geraldine, brought fresh flowers and fruit from her home for us.
We highly recommend you hire a guide to take you around the island to see the beauty and culture. Our guide, Jenner Robinson, gave us a complete tour of the entire island. His knowledge and love for the island was wonderful. Jenner is such a caring and admirable person and has a unique ability to tailor the tours to the taste and abilities of his clients. This was probably the best trip we have ever had!

Room Tip: Get the penthouse, great views and love the breeze.

We just returned from 5 nights at Calibishie Cove, and we stayed in the Rainforest Suite. Now let me just say, the room, is actually like a small apartment, and the balcony is even bigger. You could hold a small yoga class easily on the balcony, complete with chairs, sofa, hammock and table. You have incredible views of the water from the balcony, we loved opening the door and seeing ocean right in front of us (actually was the scene where Pirates of the Carribbean was shot). There is access to the cleaning closet and pantry, so staff does use it occasionally. And there are no cameras, as I have read in previous reviews. They are motion sensors for the lights at night! Breakfast each morning was complimentary and plentiful, had eggs and pancakes (omg yummy), fruit, and my husband had johnny cakes and fish, the Carribbean breakfast. And the ladies there are excellent cooks. There is the penthouse suite 2 floors above, and we never heard a peep the whole time we stayed. And this hasn't been mentioned, but the rainforest suite does have an AC unit, which we needed after it rained and it was humid out, but for 90% of the time, the breeze off the ocean was nice and constant (and we barely saw a bug the entire time, not 1 bug bite and we used no bug spray). I highly recommend this place! One more word of advice, this place is a far walk to anything, as are most places in Dominica. If you can afford, have a driver arranged to drive you around, or do as we dared to do and rent a small 4wd (must have if you go to places like Syndicate Falls). My husband loved driving in Dominica, he said it was like a video game with all the twists and turns.

This lovely hotel with great views over the Atlantic Ocean. The staff were all very helpful, and the two cooks deserve a special mention for their excellent meals.

It is a shame that there is no swimming pool available for most rooms, and it would have been nice if we had been able to get food on site at lunch time.

Room Tip: AS for a room with seaview

We loved everything about our stay at Calibishie Cove. We were in the Penthouse for one week. The views were spectacular. We saw whales breaching off from the view off the upper deck. The food was fabulous local fare. Everyone on staff went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. Listening to what was not even said and providing it. This is where I would want to stay on all my return visits. The room is great for just stay in and relaxing all day. OR the island is beautiful and exciting to discover and explore.

Our stay at Calibishie Cove was wonderful. We were in the penthouse for 7 days and we could not have picked a better spot for our Dominica adventure. The suite was outstanding and the view was spectacular. The location was ideal to discover what Dominica offers. The North end of the island is quiet and I'd go back to the Calibishie Cove in a heartbeat. The staff was pleasant and always there to help. The guide services provided through Calibishie Cove were excellent. Jenner...you are the man!! Already trying to figure out our return.

This was our second stay on Dominica Island and as well our second stay at Calibishie Cove and we definitely did not regret. We booked the Rainforest Suite and we really enjoyed the relaxing evenings while listening to nature and the sea. While the view might be even more beautiful in other rooms we were able to watch the hummingbirds while hanging around in our hummock. Be aware that the name “Rainforest Suite” says it all: this room is really close to the rainforest and if you are afraid of geckos catching some sun on your patio, go and book a club hotel.
The girls at Calibishie Cove are excellent cooks and breakfast and dinner was pure enjoyment.
In contrast to what other reviews say: there are definitively no cameras on this property but infrared sensors for automatic lightening.
