We have just returned from a 10 day trip to Crystal Cove where we had a really good time. We had a great sea view (room 115) looking out over Drifters and the room was comfortable with plenty of... Read more storage space.A problem relating to our patio door and air conditioning during our stay was quickly rectified. The grounds of the hotel were immaculate and well cared for and the beach was perfect with plenty of sunbeds. The food was good as was the service in both Reflections and in Drifters. The breakfast buffet was elaborate but the hot food could have been kept warmer during the course of service. All the staff were friendly and attentive and we would highly recommend Crystal Cove.

Last week, our group of 8 Canadian women spent a week at the Crystal Cove to celebrate our 60th birthdays. We loved the smaller size of the resort. Staff was superb, and the food was very good... Read more . Rooms were small-ish but lovely. Water sports were the main activities offered, and the resort might consider some evening activities, in addition to the live music, which was pleasant and not the 'shows' that other resorts put on. We would all go back. Read less
