Which one ?
Perhaps you could tell us what you want out of your holiday . ie Calm water for water skiing and other similar watersports or Wave action. A very busy nightlife or happy with Restaurants and Bars and a couple of night clubs -------------------------- even though both hotels are both A 1 people still usually like go out at night occasionally as there is so much to do, and it's safe to walk around. That is why most of us don't recommend All Inclusive Hotels at all in Barbados. They just aren't necessary on a lovely Island like this, with so many Restaurants to choose from,
The good thing about Crystal Cove is that it belongs to the Elegant Chain , so you can participate in their "Dine Around " scheme travelling to their other hotel in their own Water Taxi during the day, so you won't be tied to one hotel.Edited: 6:11 pm, September 20, 2018
Sorry, I should have said Elegant's other hotels not hotel. They have several on the west coast.
agree with everything Westie wrote above -- on the calmer west coast- has the use of the dedicated water taxi to visit sister west coast hotels - has free exchange dining with Waves PLUS - the big advantage is that you can take advantage of the Dine Around Plan if you choose to --- dine in more upscale hotels like the Colony Club etc, for a small supplement https:/…dine-around-programme
