TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
Good but not great but I guess it all depends on what you are looking for. Firstly the good: lovely beach where you can spread out. Snorkeling opportunities straight off the beach and we even saw... Read more the local turtle without having to take a boat trip. Really helpful as friendly staff in most cases. Big airy room if you opt for the junior suite. Tip: beach lovers try for 124, 134, 224 or 234 which are right on the beach entrance. Nice touches were the regular drinks service and treats on the beach. Now the not so good : the rooms are simply furnished and the bathrooms need refurbishment and a separate shower. Also the patio doors need replacing as the locks have broken and the runners corroded so opening them is a struggle. Too many buffets - might be pandering to a certain clientele? Certainly we heard comments that buffets were good as they allowed multiple meals. Maybe a revamp with a small top end dining option, even at a supplement, would be good. Hard to get the favoured tables in the dining room without eating early. All in all a fabulous 2 weeks that with a bit of stretch by Crystal Cove could he been even better. Read less
Room was not luxury but quite sufficient and very clean, everything you need. Would definitely go back again . The pools were good for the children and adults alike,plenty of sun beds and amazing... Read more trips, some you had to pay for but were worth the money.. Best compliment of all is to the staff EXCELLENT Read less
My wife and myself have just returned from another fantastic holiday at Crystal Cove.We first went this time last year and enjoyed the holiday that much we booked again for this year. Our... Read more expectations were not dashed the staff are brilliant from the gardening staff all the way up to the management but a big thank you to Kathy in the restaurant who again made our holiday complete. The food is amazing with meals three times a day and afternoon tea if you can fit it in.(Who needs to visit The Cliff with food like this ?) Unfortunately this year we had one day in which the rain really came down from very early morning until late that evening, Unfortunately we got back to our room to find we had a leaky roof, I left it until the next morning to report the leak but with in a couple of hours we had been upgraded to a suit and all our cloths had been dried and replaced with out any fuss what so ever. The bars staff are quick and efficient with Victor and Dolores helping where ever they can. if you have any doubts about holidaying at Crystal cove don't be worried it is brilliant. On the beach you have all kinds of water activities which are free to use and a free water taxi which takes you up towards Holetown and back with no charge. Unfortunately we cant make it back next year because of other commitments but will be looking to go back as soon as we can. Thanks Crystal Cove. Read less
This hotel is amazing! it is nothing plush but the rooms are clean and very adequate fab air con and a large and very comfortable bed. The waitress's and waiters work tirelessly with smiles on there... Read more faces to make your holiday as good as it can be. The beach and sea are amazing the sea is warm and calm. The food is good West end quality and if there is nothing you like on the menu you can order something difrent room service aswell. The entertainment is very good but finishes at half 10 however this isn't a problem as I loved getting a full day in the sun! The water sports were all included apart from the jet skies but they were Â£60 USD they were helpful people always happy to get you ready and show you what to do. The only complaint I'd have would be the lady in the shop when buying a lilo from her she moaned about pumping it up and then when it needed more air she just handed me the pump and didn't even show me how to use it I wasn't the only one who had said she had lost her humour either, however this could have been because everyone else was so nice However victor kareem kevin tanya and eceryone else was amazing it's truly a beautiful island with beautiful people I cannot rate barbados and crystal cove enough thank you for a lovely stay and can't wait to be back Read less
On arrival we felt hotel was quite dated but it grew on us we were travelling with s 5 month old baby and the resort whilst the staff are wonderful and accomodating the resort is not, far too many... Read more stairs to get everywhere. Would have gone elsewhere if had realised this with a pushchair! Interesting we booked a suite and whilst there met some others that were in double rooms and they did not have a mini bar whilst our room did. Food was very good albeit a bit repetitive. No real entertainment to speak of but that suited us with our little bundle in tow. Read less
