The Cove Eleuthera

An escape to the cove

An intimate and secluded retreat, The Cove Eleuthera is situated on the island of Eleuthera which makes up one of the over 700 islands of the Bahamas. With only 57 rooms and suites, you will get a real sense of escapism as soon as you arrive. Boasting two cove beaches with 180° ocean views, enjoy lazy days barefoot walking along the white sands and taking a dip in the crystal clear waters that hug this stunning island. Eleuthera itself can be described as an emerald gem, showcasing stunning scenery - take a hiking trail after lunch to explore more of what this island has to offer. When the sun goes down, take a romantic stroll through the resort's perfectly landscaped grounds, laze on a hammock under two palm trees or dine at the signature Freedom restaurant and sushi bar, serving great seafood and meats with ingredients grown at the resort. With a range of accommodations nestled across the resort, The Cove is perfect for couples looking for a romantic getaway or a family looking to escape the hustle and bustle of every day life.

A very nice hotel on a magic island

Herrliberg, Switzerland

The Cove has an interesting history. Before it was a chicken-shack and then this wealthy guy, Sidney, came from New Orleans and built a 5-Star-Hotel out of nothing. Personally, I think the place is really cool. The service lacks sometimes 5-stars-quality. But since your are on an authentic island, you won't regret your stay for one second. The Cove is a must for all travellers with high expectations for adventures and well being. Don't miss it.

The Cove

Beautiful property, rooms are very basic. The service is all around painstakingly slow/poor. If you let them know about something wrong in your room for instance, you can’t count on it being resolved by the time you leave. Lovely people but it’s simply not a service oriented resort. Don’t expect to get what you ordered for a meal. Do expect to wait 15 minutes after your meal has been delivered to get the utensils required to actually eat it. Astronomically high prices for food/drink with limited options. Tip already included on each bill so no real urgency from staff. You will spend a lot of money while at the resort and a lot of time waiting for mediocre service. Would reiterate again though that it’s a gorgeous location for relaxation!
