Relaxing All Inclusive Hotel

We stayed here for one week on our honeymoon after being in Arizona for three weeks. We received a free room upgrade to a beach view suite. The food and drink was always good and found the whole week to be so relaxing and enjoyable would love to return.

Costly Crystal Cove

Third visit to this resort was quite shocked by the price for four days and in my view is not value for money. The staff are firm but friendly the views and beach position fabulous. We had an ocean room but not much renovation has taken place since our last visit Food is very mediocre but quality of the drinks on a free is much improved Not sure we will return

Lovely family holiday

This was our second visit to Crystal Cove. We took our family along as we thought it was the perfect place for a family holiday. We were welcomed back with open arms, and the room upgrades and extras were much appreciated! Such a beautiful, relaxing place to spend 10 days with our grown-up family. There are many things which will ensure you have a good holiday, but the staff here are fabulous. To name a few, Lisa, Rhea, Brian, Claire. Nothing is too much trouble for Shauna, and Nikita is the most dedicated cocktail mixer! Joan is a fabulous Bajan lady - she just wants to make sure you have the best holiday ever! Jamal, Uncle Adrian B, Sasha, and the list goes on ... These are the people who love to make your holiday fantastic - nothing is too much trouble. Sophia Babb, what a great team. Besides the lovely people, you will enjoy two delicious restaurants and great food. We loved the inter-dining between the other Elegant hotels (at a very moderate cost for Colony and Tamarind) and the water taxi is a great way of travelling between hotels. I loved the beach and the sunloungers and the pools are very 'lazy' rather than frantic splashy pools. The only thing I would improve is the 'swim-up' pool bar and the cave bar. It had no 'community' about it in my humble opinion.Loved the evening entertainment while we were there, soloists some nights, and some of the bands were very good, 'Champagne' had everyone up dancing and singing, and 'The Bridgetown Boyz' were fabulous as ever.We would definitely return.

Lovely Visit, top-notch staff, will return!

This was our first trip to Barbados and we definitely look forward to returning. Overall, it is an exceptionally friendly and welcoming island. And then there is Crystal Cove...which epitomizes the friendliness and welcoming atmosphere of Barbados. Most everything was first rate - wonderfully spacious and comfortable room, beautifully furnished and well-stocked. Excellent housekeeping. Terrific beach - well-attended, with security present, and a wonderfully helpful and cheerful watersports staff. Gracious and efficient restaurant wait staff. Front desk and concierge superb - especially Brian and Lisa! Special activities everyday, including painting instruction (a first!) - so much fun with Jefferson. Only slight downside to this hotel: food, while ample, is a "B," at best. And tennis courts...painted over concrete. Both could use improvement. Otherwise - excellent!

our perfect wedding

after being together for 30yrs, my partner & I decided to get married. we had always said we would like to get married with as little fuss as possible, on a Caribbean island & on a lovely sandy beach. crystal cove delivered the lot & much more. other than an initial discussion with Rhea one of the wedding planners, the photographer (H&M Photography) & a trip to get our wedding licence that is all we had to do, except turn up on the day. everything was sorted out for us, we had no hassles to deal with. our wedding went perfectly. the delightful Rev Darlington was in charge of the ceremony which took place on the beach just as we had always hoped for. Hannes, the photographer was absolutely brilliant. we have some wonderful photos of us, our guests, signing the register & the beautiful sunset we were blessed with that day.our rooms, the staff, the food & restaurants were lovely. we had no need to complain about anything. small bonuses were packs of fresh fruit salad brought to us on the beach in the mornings & ice lollies coming around in the afternoon. such a lot of thought to make our holiday so wonderful.
