Read more rooms. Just go and find out for yourselves you won't be disappointed. The only thing we felt let the hotel down was maybe the pools, could do with freshening up, but who needs the pools when you have the Caribbean lapping at your door. Read less
We stayed at Crystal Cove during February half term with 2 of our sons and we all had fantastic holiday. We have stayed in many hotels all over the world but have never visited Barbados before... Read more - Crystal Cove was a great choice and I think it suits all age groups. We had an ocean view suite which is excellent for up to 4 people and has a wonderful sea view. We found the food to be excellent and enjoyed both reflections and drifters in the evening. All the staff in the restaurants are lovely but Shaunna and Kay really stand out, and Joan the restaurant manager is so friendly and accommodating. The cocktails are great and being able to indulge in a pina colada in the late afternoon felt decadent! The guys in the watersports centre are excellent and when the sea wasn't too rough we enjoyed waterskiing, wakeboarding and tube rides. Don't miss the Caribbean night so I would recommend booking reflections that night(where the entertainment is) because it's good fun! Crystal Cove is a truly relaxing holiday. We didn't move much out of the hotel apart from going into Holetown on the yellow bus, and going on the Good Times catamaran trip (see separate review). My husband and son also enjoyed a trip to the Kensington Oval to watch the cricket which is a taxi ride away. Our opinion was that it was a great family holiday and definitely worth visiting.

Just returned after two amazing weeks. Our 5th time here as it just ticks all our boxes. Staff are brilliant - warm and so friendly as other reviews have said. The lovely Olivia, Sophia, Celleste... Read more , Lisa and Kathy are all tremendous as are all the girls Marisa, Tanya, Shakira and Sasha - I could just go on but I've got brain melt down back in uk I can't remember all the names!! But we are so grateful for the wonderful warm welcome and service. We can't forget Sheldon and Victor though.. those cocktails were to die for. The sun beds are the most comfortable we have laid on and we did a lot of lying down in the sun. The other reviews tell the story so well so we won't repeat only to say that you won't go far wrong if you book here. The bathrooms are to be upgraded which is needed so we'll look forward to trying them out next year. Met some lovely people Dawn & Steve, Miriam and Jonathan and Felita and John all made our Hol extra special. karaoke was fun I hope they keep Alan on he got all the guests chatting and we had a great laugh. Thanks again CC and see you all next year. Read less

Read more We got married at this wonderful hotel and had our friends and family staying with us....we couldn't of asked for a better venue. Hotel was clean and modern, pools were great....although not the largest they were perfect for relaxing and having a drink, room was exquisite (we had the 1 bedroom suite) with amazing views of the gardens and the sea, beach was beautiful and the food was lovely. Excellent in every way and all the staff couldn't do enough for you....we highly recommend staying here....our friends and family would say the same about this hotel too. Read less
