We stayed here back in September 2011 and fell in love with the hotel as well as the country! The staff were amazing as well as food! Our stay was 5 star and it literally was paradise! The beach is in a perfect location as the hotel is right on top of it! Can't wait to visit Barbados again and... More

Easily the best hotel I have ever stayed in (and I've stayed in some beauty's). So glad we chose it as it really was a coin flip between Crystal Cove and Turtle Beach (same owners, similar offerings). The hotel is amazing, the staff are brilliant, the food is faultless and the beach... The beach is the best we found on... More

We have been staying here for several years. Staff so friendly and helpful, they all remember us, it's like going back to see family. They make you feel at home on arrival. Each room has a nice view, don't worry if you don't have ocean view as all rooms have some sort of a view. Special thanks to Sofia, Brian,... More

Everything about this holiday was as good as it could be, good food, excellent room, friendly experienced staff and an atmosphere of enjoyment for both the client and the staff be it on the beach, in the bars and restaurants or in reception. Thank you.

I have stayed at Crystal Cove three times and just come back from a 10 day trip with my boyfriend, my mother and her other half. This is hands down the most amazing hotel, with really comfy beds, good food and the staff go above and beyond their jobs to make you feel at home. All staff were so polite... More

This was our third stay at the Crystal Cove. Very quick into our holiday we could recognise the improvements they've made since our visits in 2008 & 2009. Attention to the guest is something they have clearly made a priority, especially at Dinner service. The food is great, the hotel grounds are immaculate and the staff went out of their... More

Very good hotel with amazing staff that made the holiday.travelled in March with Virgin holidays. Travel went very smoothly. This was our fourth visit to Barbados and it certainly did not disappoint.
