Walked by the Crystal Cove hotel along the beach, and was sickened by the garbage stuck in a tree just in front of one of the hotel rooms just near the beach bar. Lots of plastic cups, plastic bags. I cannot remember the exact words of the sign on the beach, but it seemed to indicate that the beach was... More

We have just returned from our 10 night honeymoon at Crystal Cove, we spent some time reading reviews and its safe to say this hotel does not disappoint! It was luxury from the moment we arrived, after the long journey we were welcomed with a lovely view from the terrace and a rum punch. Our room was a garden view... More

This was a very special holiday for myself and my husband - our first together in 10 years as he works overseas and we see each other only 3x a year! I had visited this lovely hotel some 6 years ago with my parents and daughters (2010) - so I already knew what a fabulous experience it was and together,... More

Just returned from Crystal Cove again and it remains a beautifully clean and peaceful resort with an excellent high standard in all areas. Food is delicious and the staff go that extra mile to make your holiday special - they even remembered us from last year which goes a long way for repeat customers! I would just like to say... More

On arrival we were greeted like old friends, my wife had stayed there several years ago with our children and some of the staff remembered her from that stay. The location, on a white sandy beach on the West... More

Apologies, it's a bit long winded! There was a party of 4 females staying in the Hotel. They were loud and their behaviour was totally unacceptable. i.e. extremely drunk and using rude and offensive language whilst at the poolside bar. i.e. one of them ended up standing on the concrete swim up bar stool and shouting to myself and others...

My family has visited many islands and resorts and Crystal Cove was the most beautiful. The landscaping and pools are gorgeous! The size of the property and number of rooms is ideal. We enjoyed the resort's water activities; our son is 16 and it helped to keep him busy. We were able to snorkel everyday at no charge and we... More
