Went on my honeymoon. Amazing hotel. The photos on here don't really do it justice either. The trip to oistons on the Friday is a must The staff and locals are very welcoming. The food is just what you would want in the climate and is good quality, a mixture of a la carte or buffet

We stayed at Crystal Cove for one night after coming from the Grenadines- a family of four with two teenage kids. Good: Firstly the beaches were really nice and the sand was extremely soft, it was nice to be served drinks and fruit lollies on the beach to refresh. But within the swimming areas, the sea was quite rocky underneath... More

Once again, the staff, hotel and location each played a major factor in creating the perfect holiday for myself and my family. We've visited the Crystal Cove on 2 occasions previously and this time around we took our 22month old daughter along with us. Sceptical at first to take a toddler with us who was too young for the kids... More
