We were staying at The Tamarind sister hotel, and thought it be good to go over and see what the hotels were like, so decided to book lunch there and spend some of the day there too.We spoke to reception, and were advised that lunch would cost $240 (barbados) for the four of us, even though we were on full board at the Tamarind, which I was surprised with. But booked. Reception suggested we take our towels over too. On arrival at Crystal cove, we were stopped immediately by reception who asked where we from, obviously we were tamarind as by our colour towels, we were then asked for I'd cards as well as the voucher. Not a great feeling to be honest.We proceeded to the pools, where seating was all taken,and then to the beach which was also very very busy. Finally managed to find some sun loungers, two of which were broken, and they were actually on some gravel and not on the sand itself. About half hour in, we were approached by a gent with glasses of soft drinks, who initially offered them to everyone around us, then decided to come over to my wife and I. Similar response as we had in reception, quizzed whichhotel we were from, asked for I.d. And also our voucher.We t managed to get a couple glasses of water, but decided that we really didn't want to stay any longerWe headed back, and had lunch at our hotel the Tamarind.This was the first time in our week in Barbados were the service was anything other than excellent. Silly really, as if we didn't have different colour towels no one would have known that we were from a different hotel. But what's crazy is that we were from one of their hotels.Would I go back to stay as a guest even - not a chance.
That was our first time in Barbados and first time in a all-inclusive resort and we haven't been disappointed! We'll definitely come back! The setting of the hotel is beautiful; it feels really like a village and not a massive resort with no soul. The food was good and varied, the cockails were great! The staff was absolutely charming and helpful, every single one of them!Also very nice to have free water sports, very nice people there as well!
Crystal Cove hotel is situated on a lovely sandy beach with easy access to the sea. The pool areas are beautiful with a waterfall and access to a bar whilst in the water. The staff are friendly and very helpful and couldn't do enough to make our stay an enjoyable one. Two of our party were celebrating birthdays and the staff made these memorable. Food was all inclusive and included drinks and afternoon tea. Also staff came round to the beach area and pool with lollies and drinks. Staff were helpful arranging trips and giving advice as to which to do. Would recommend this hotel and would definitely go back.
Second time for us at the cove and we were not disappointed. Food, staff and grounds are amazing. Lads at the water sports really helpful. Beautiful clean beach and pool area.Can't wait to go back. Fantastic for couple s wanting to get away from it all.
We stayed at the Crystal Cove hotel in Barbados for ten days from 2nd October. Two couples, with two of us celebrating our 60th birthdays. We arrived in the afternoon, to be greeted with a rum punch or fruit juice, the reception people were really friendly and welcoming. Our rooms were garden rooms, but one room had a great sea view, which we were not expecting. The grounds were well laid out, taking you between the two restaurant areas and around the pools. The swimming pools were built into the rocks and were very attractive with plenty of sunbeds and shades. While sunbathing beside the pool you also had a view of the beach and sea, it was absolutely lovely. We were offered drinks and ice lollies while we sunbathed, both by the pools and on the beach. This service, by very friendly staff, really added to our holiday. There was live music every evening while we ate in the dining room, until 10.30 pm. We were on a fully inclusive basis, including drinks, breakfast, lunch and dinner and afternoon tea, complete with sandwiches and cake. All at a very good standard served by very friendly waitresses.All four of us loved the hotel, we were able to book trips and car hire very easily and were well advised as to which trip to take and what to see on the island. I can fully recommend this hotel, we would definitely go back if we returned to Barbados.
