Just returned from 10 days at Crystal Cove. Our previous visit was 5 years ago. We decided to return having been at a larger hotel up the coast last year. We remembered that despite a few small niggles the food, service and location had been excellent. This year was even better! Firstly the food is exceptional! Every dish in Reflections was correctly cooked and also correctly presented. Every meal was a pleasure. Our room (Ocean View 221) was nicely decorated with an amazing view-bathroom needs a bit of tlc but ok. Bed very comfortable and quiet functional AC. The beach loungers are a huge improvement and there are enough that no one needs to sneak out at 6.00am to take one! Service-such a feature of Barbados in general- was also first class. We were delighted at how welcome we were made and the little touches - bottle of Champagne in our room with a Welcome Back card created both a feeling of being a valued guest as well as a friend. We will certainly return. In summary this is a very well managed, restful hotel with exceptional dining. Lastly a request to Elegant Hotel Chain. It is understood that there will always be food left over from the buffet/dining services. Is there not some way you can find to allow some of this to be distributed to those on the Island who would both benefit and appreciate food they could never afford. I understand liability but if major companies like Pret a Mange can do this then perhaps you can be the first enlightened company in Barbados to help poorer people as an act of charity.
