I've just been back from 2 weeks at Crystal Cove in Barbados and I've never felt so sad leaving a holiday! To start, the hotel is great. My room was lovely, I had a sea view apartment. The food, all meals were great! I particularly loved the lunch buffet. The pools are great, and the beach just in front of... More

Arranging any wedding is a challenge, but arranging it from 4000 miles away has its own dynamics! We have stayed in a number of hotels in St James over the years and each has their own unique characteristics. Being an intimate group of 5 couples and our 3 boys we wanted somewhere a little more informal than in the past... More

What a wonderful hotel! Lovely location on different levels! We were warmly greeted with some rum punch and cool flannels and were left to relax and take in the views on comfy sofas overlooking the sea before being taken to our room. We requested a higher room - which is what we got. The room wasn't the biggest we have... More

This is the first place I ever visited in the Caribbean. That was actually 5 years ago and I would love to go back, and judging by some of the recent views, it's still as good as it ever was. (Please note my holiday was in March 2011, but there is no option for that year on the review page,... More

I stayed here with family about 9 months ago, and this hotel was honestly everything we could have wished for. The choices for food were plentiful, all meals of the day (gained a fair amount of weight in the 10 days i was here!). Staff bring drinks out onto the beach while you relax, and were all so friendly.
