Superb hotel, staff, rooms, facilities, easily the best in the Elegance Group. Appropriate for all types of travellers from couples, young or old, to families with young or older children. Being... Read more all-inclusive all water sports are free including sailing and water-skiing which I've never seen in the Caribean and saves you a fortune. Nearly everyone staying at the Hotel was a repeat customer and I can totally see why. We literally couldn't fault it, the fabulous reviews are all true and like pretty much everyone who goes, we shall be returning with the rest of our family. If you're pontificating between the other hotels choose this one as it has the style and class of The Colony Club, the facilities of Tamarind, a far better (and usable!) beach than Turtle Beach whilst being the best value at all-inclusive. It's also near the South where you can potter off to Bridgetown, St Lawrence Gap or the fish fry at Oistins each weekend. Top tip, go on the boat trip to see and swim with the turtles and rays but ask to be taken at 8am, then you miss the other boats. Read less

Stayed here for family holiday over Easter. The most friendly hotel I have ever stayed in. Clean rooms, terrific food, stunning location and brilliant staff in both the bar and restaurant and water... Read more sports. Having visited Barbados on several occasions I knew it was going to be a great holiday but was totally blown away! A special thanks to Sheldon and Kareem from the bar and all the staff in the restaurant, they are a credit to the hotel. We were upgraded to an ocean view suite and it was beautiful. The entertainment was so professional. Well Done Crystal Cove! Read less

Arranged this trip for my birthday. Could not have picked a better place! The environment is welcoming, rooms are clean and food is very good. This was my first visit and I could not be happier... Read more about our choice. Team members go out of their way to ensure you are taken care of with a smile and can do attitude. The beach is very well maintained and cleaned every day. Entertainment is provided every night to add to the greatness of your trip. I would recommend it to unwind and enjoy a relaxing and quiet time.

Stayed at the hotel at the end of March. The hotel is clean, gardens are very pretty and the food is very good, but I think the gem for the hotel are the staff. There were many which I could mention... Read more by name as they all made you feel very welcome but I have to give a special mention to Kathy, who just went that extra mile and when leaving our table after dinner my husband and I always had a smile on our face. The beach is spotless and cleaned everyday. We loved it and are planning a return trip next year. Read less
