Crystal Coves is quite frankly a 10/10 awesome resort & hotel! We just returned after 14 fabulous nights, and can honestly say, we all had a tear in our eyes when we pulled away in taxi to the airport. :-( The hotel situ, its lay out and the service is unquestionably one of the best we've experienced. The staff were... More

Having recently stayed at the Crystal Cove for the first time we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived it was perfect. Very welcoming staff and impressively clean. We particularly liked the way the pools were arranged and the lovely swim into the cave bar. The beech was lovely and you could always get a lounger, plenty for all.... More

We stayed here as a combination wedding anniversary/40th birthday celebration. It was amazing! The staff are the most cordial and accomodating people you will ever find. If you enjoy a smile on every face and a "how may I help you" from every mouth, you will love it here....The management didn't even know we were celebrating a special occasion and... More

Just returned from crystal cove, great food and drinks. It's a shame the downstairs restaurant doesn't have some sort of cover, if it rains you have to go to main restaurant which is not air conditioned and turns into a buffet night, this became a bit much and really don't like buffets. Beach and watersports great fun.

If you are an Olympic swimmer training for Rio then I suggest you don't stay at Crystal Cove if you don't think the pools might be quite big enough. However it is perfectly situated next to the Caribbean Sea. If you want a relaxing holiday in a well maintained hotel with fantastic food and staff who can't do enough for... More

We stayed here for our belated honeymoon and loved every minute if it. The hotel is perfect. The staff are so helpful and friendly. The food is excellent. We liked the option of a formal and casual restaurant. We particularly enjoyed cocktail of the day from the cave bar. The pools are attractively set amongst well tended flowers. The evening... More
