We visited Crystal Cove in the third week of October and what a fantastic place it is. The staff were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We are so pleased to have found this place, this being our first visit to Barbados, and definitely intend to go back. Our room was No.207, a garden room on the upper... More

Returned again and it blows you away. It is in the Caribbean so you get wet, blame god not the hotel. Food, atmosphere, service and every attention to detail are amazing and the staff are simply the best.They just keep finding new superstars like the newest kid on the block Shakira. Management should know how amazing she is with customers.... More

Have just returned home having spent 10 days at crystal cove. The surroundings and beach were fantastic. All the staff were friendly and extremely obliging, nothing was too much trouble which made for a good holiday. Food was on the whole excellent with plenty of choice. The only small negative was the room was a bit tired and could have... More

We have just returned from a 10 day trip to Crystal Cove where we had a really good time. We had a great sea view (room 115) looking out over Drifters and the room was comfortable with plenty of storage space.A problem relating to our patio door and air conditioning during our stay was quickly rectified. The grounds of the... More

Last week, our group of 8 Canadian women spent a week at the Crystal Cove to celebrate our 60th birthdays. We loved the smaller size of the resort. Staff was superb, and the food was very good. Rooms were small-ish but lovely. Water sports were the main activities offered, and the resort might consider some evening activities, in addition to... More

We have just arrived back today 17/11/14, as most of the other reports have stated it is a fantastic hotel with great food, grounds, beaches, and most of all the staff. I can only say the odd unsatisfactory report is the exception rather than the rule and these people would be hard to please where ever they went. Ignore them... More

We stayed for 1 week in September and had an amazing time. The location of this hotel is stunning. We had a sea view, just above Drifters, and the view was amazing, so close to the sea we could hear the waves. The room was very pleasant with a very large bed, plenty of drawer and wardrobe space and even... More

We stayed for 1 week over the October half term and really enjoyed ourselves. We had a suite with a sea view (although it was a little blocked by a palm tree). The accommodation was nice and spacious for 2 adults/2 children and huge for 2 adults (as our accompanying friends were). Both suites could have done with a little... More
