A very friendly hotel which, relative to the rest of the west coast, offers very good value for money. The compact layout and limited room numbers gives Crystal Cove a cosy feel; you are never that far away from all the facilities. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The Yellowfin guys operating the water sports from the beach... More

We enjoyed a week at the end of February. We were in a garden room from which we could see the sea from the ample balcony. The hotel is definitely 5* but is really made by the friendliness of the staff who were without exception great. Genuinely couldn't do enough and wanted to chat and have fun. The room was... More

This was our first time at Crystal Cove but it soon became obvious that there were many regular visitors there as they were met with hugs from the staff. Some previous reviews had made me a little apprehensive about the food and accommodation, but I needn’t have worried on both counts, although neither were top notch, they were adequate. The... More

Just come back from our 19th visit – it gets better and better as the years go by. Olivia, Sophia (General and Hotel Manager respectively) and their Teams are dedicated to ensuring each Visitor is treated as if it were “Home.” Nothing is too much trouble; ask and if it can possibly be delivered; it will. You won’t find a... More

This is right on the beach with ambassador service, bringing drinks etc to you.. It has three lovely pools. No need to fight for a sunbed. There are plenty to go round. Two places to eat. One restaurant inside overlooking the pool and a more informal near the beach. The service was very good but be careful when it advertises... More

We stayed at Crystal Cove during February half term with 2 of our sons and we all had fantastic holiday. We have stayed in many hotels all over the world but have never visited Barbados before- Crystal Cove was a great choice and I think it suits all age groups. We had an ocean view suite which is excellent for... More

We stayed here for a few nights before a cruise. For the price we were expecting a boutique hotel experience where the reality is far different. It is a package tour destination that offers mediocre four star service at best. The rooms are tired, the quality of the food is poor and the evening entertainment is poor quality singers. Not...
