This was our second visit to this hotel so obviously we returned because we enjoyed it so much. The hotel is in a fabulous location, right on the beach which is big enough to allow seclusion with... Read more easy access to the amenties this "all inclusive" hotel has to offer. Last year we even had turtle hatchlings right on the beach! The food is excellent in the 2 restaurants and there is plenty of drinks choice to keep everyone happy. The atmosphere is very relaxed and with simple entertainment every night its a classic "chillax" venue. Our ocean view room was plenty big enough with a great balcony. The staff are very friendly and helpful and often felt more like family when we needed them. My wife was taken ill (nothing to do with the hotel!)and spent the last few days of our holiday in hospital. Throughout this stressful time, all of the staff from waitresses, housekeeping, security, maintenance, reception and management were just amazing. Caring in the extreme and all concerned to ask how everything was and provide every assistance they could. As it happens this was also true of the entire staff at the hospital, taxi drivers and even complete strangers so it must be a Barbadian thing. We'll be back again next year all being well. Read less
Travelled to Crystal Cove for 9 nights in February with a 2 and a 3 year old to get married to my partner. This had the potential to be a bit stressful but the wonderful staff made our stay extra... Read more special and completely relaxing. The wedding coordinators, Lisa and Rhea went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful day. They were so accommodating to all requests and were very well organised. All the staff were great with the kids, they remembered their names and stopped for a chat and a cuddle. This is a really great place to go with children. I particularly liked that you could order children's meals outside of scheduled mealtimes so they didn't have to wait if they were hungry. The kids club was also excellent with really lovely staff. We stayed in a one bedroom suite which was spacious and nicely decorated. The only minor downside is that they are obviously refurbishing the bathrooms and haven't upgraded the baths yet, they work fine but just look a bit worn. The resort itself is clean, well maintained and nicely landscaped. The beach area is like something from a postcard with gorgeous warm, clear sea. I would definitely recommend this resort. Thank you crystal cove for a wedding that we'll never forget. Read less

Spent a week at Crystal Cove in February .From check in to check out could not fault anything.The warmest most friendly staff could not do enough for you. Particular mention to Sheldon for his... Read more fabulous cocktails. Beautiful beach and location . Non stop drinks, jellies and iced lollies delivered to you at your sun loungers on the beach. Very nice touch. Breakfast lunch and evening meals provided an excellent choice of food. Wifi excellent even on the beach. Had a car for the day which was a great way of doing your own exploring even driving on same side as the UK. Enjoyed beautiful Barbados even the trips on the yellow reggie bus! Took a boat trip to swim with the turtles, this was amazing and a trip highly recommended, what a fantastic experience. The hotel, staff, food and setting was outstanding in every way. Beautiful, peaceful, pure relaxation and tranquility. Would recommend this fabulous hotel and resort to anyone, faultless. Can't wait to return again very soon. Read less
