My boyfriend and I spent 6 days and 5 nights at this facility. From the moment we arrived the staff was amazing. They were more than accomodating and friendly. On the first day I asked if they had turkey bacon (which they didnt). By the next morning there was a plate waiting for me at breakfast. They were happy to... More

The Reception and communal areas are ok and in average quality... but when me and my partner spent nearly £7000 on this holiday and from the photos its meant to be a paradise... well its not. All the rooms are out dated and need... More

My husband and I had a great holiday and was made to feel special on my birthday! The staff were great, room size was average but comfortable, beach was clean and sea calm, the Champagne Band on Saturday nights provided excellent entertainment! Would definitely recommend the Crystal Cove to friends and family.

Three friends and myself went there June 2014 and had a great time. One of us had won the trip through a sweepstakes so that is how we ended up here, I never heard of this place until then. The beach was amazing and the service was great. The staff was very helpful with giving us information about tours and... More

Had a wonderful 9 days at the Crystal Cove at the end of June. Can't think of a single negative. Room was spacious, clean and well decorated; food and drink were excellent with loads of choice; all members of staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Overall a fantastic hotel. Thank you

...... stay at this hotel. From the initial check in (excellent and quick into room) to check out (equally as good), everything is geared to help you relax and enjoy your holiday. The biggest tick was the friendliness of the staff, The reception and concierge staff, waitresses, chambermaids, water sports guys and security people were all very friendly and considerate....

We arrived at Crystal Cove on 8/15/15 and were greeted with friendly faces, terrific scenery, Caribbean Sea waves and total relaxation. When 8/20/15 came we left with sad faces but fantastic memories, great photos and new friends from the U.S., U.K., and, of course, Barbados! The resort was cozy, quaint and the right atmosphere to relax and unwind. The staff... More

We stayed at the hotel for 12 nights in August having previously stayed in another hotel on the same coast 4 years ago. The position of the hotel on the west coast is really good. It's a 15 minute bus ride to Bridge Town, about 5 minutes to Hole Town and walking distance to the Cliff restaurant. The sea is... More
