Two wonderful weeks at Crystal Cove. This was our first visit to this hotel and third visit to Barbados and thirteenth visit to the Caribbean and we thought the hotel food was the best. All the staff were brilliant and very attentive. All meals were of excellent high quality. One problem we found was that we went at half term,... More

Although we've been to many of the Caribbean islands, we had never been to Barbados. In early February we spontaneously decided we needed some time at the beach--a warm one--so decided now was the chance to see Barbados. We arrived on a 10 PM flight on a Saturday night (no need to pre-book hotel transfers as our taxi was only... More

This was our four visit to Crystal Cove, and usual it lived up to our expectations. The hotel is in a perfect setting on the west cost, with a warm sea and fantastic beach. The rooms are comfortable and the food in both the restaurants is of a very good standard. What makes this such a great place are the... More

This was our second visit to this hotel so obviously we returned because we enjoyed it so much. The hotel is in a fabulous location, right on the beach which is big enough to allow seclusion with easy access to the amenties this "all inclusive" hotel has to offer. Last year we even had turtle hatchlings right on the beach!... More

Travelled to Crystal Cove for 9 nights in February with a 2 and a 3 year old to get married to my partner. This had the potential to be a bit stressful but the wonderful staff made our stay extra special and completely relaxing. The wedding coordinators, Lisa and Rhea went above and beyond to make sure we had a... More

The staff were excellent and everyone without exception was very courteous- we also attended the Management cocktail party and were impressed with the involvement and interest of the... More

The facilities such as gym, pools, bars and beach are definitely 4 star. They are well maintained and not too busy. The restaurants are lovely with fresh food and fabulous... More
