We travelled as 6 ladies, leaving our kids and husbands behind to celebrate a 40th Birthday! Well we fell in love with Barbados and Crystal Cove. The place was true paradise. After a 51/2 hour flight from Toronto, we arrived to cold towels and a cold/strong RUM punch. Then rooms were ready right away and we found ourselves on the beach and a ride on the banana boat. All the water sports are included - waterskiing, tubing, kayak, banana boat and catamaran...and trust me we did them all (a few of my friends tubed on our last day 6 times).
We had amazing food, buffet breakfasts, buffet and al a carte lunches and dinners. No disppointments..they also served afternoon tea. They even packed us box lunches for an outside excursion we were taking, and one for our trip home (since we would miss lunch). One extra thing i wanted to mention, was one of our travellers was gluten free and they went out of their way to accomodate her.
The staff, from front desk, housekeeping, wait staff, pool staff, water sports gang, they were truly nice, genuine people. All of you at Crystal Cove, kudos for a job well done!!
