This is my second visit to this hotel, and as I never return to the same place twice says it all. Lovely staff , beautiful setting and great food what more would you want. Plenty of sun loungers...

We had the most amazing end to our honeymoon at crystal cove! Superb accommodation where the staff can not do enough for you! They are the most pleasant staff we have ever come across! Always... Read more willing to help with a smile on their faces! The accommodation itself was great and well maintained! The three pools were small but natural looking and the swim up bar was great fun! The food was superb! Plenty of choice and variation throughout the week! The all inclusive drinks were amazing too! Plenty of cocktails to choose from and branded spirits included too! We would 100% recommend this hotel and Barbados for a holiday to anyone of any age, with or without children! Thank you Crystal Cove for an amazing week! Read less
We have just return from 2 fabulous weeks at this hotel. The beach is beautiful and great for snorkelling (we saw a turtle just off the beach), the beach staff and complimentary water sports are... Read more excellent. The restaurant and bar staff are very attentive, great fun and genuinely look like they love their job. The food is excellent with something new and local to the area every day. The reception/concierge team are happy to help and very friendly. I cannot recommend this hotel enough, if you are going to Barbados this is the place to stay. Read less
We spent two weeks at Crystal Cove and had the best of times, the staff were excellent and made our holiday more pleasurable. Drinks, jelly and ice lollies were served on the beach several times a... Read more day and there were at least sixty on each tray with nothing spilt or dropped. The rooms were adequate and beds comfortable. It has a great gym and has several water sports to offer. The food was very good with a varied selection on the menu in the two restaurants. The only downside is the evening entertainment could only be heard from one restaurant and it finished at 10:30 (although this is normal for Barbados) and the bar closed at 11:45 Read less
Everything about this hotel was perfect. It is in a great location, the staff were excellent, very attentive, helpful and friendly. It is clean with great food and drinks. The room was just right... Read more (ours was overlooking the lovely beach), the pools and beach facilities were also spot on. This was our first visit to Barbados although this particular hotel had been recommended by family and it certainly was not a disappointment. We will return and I have no hesitation in recommending the Crystal Cove to anyone who wants a fabulous holiday. Read less
