Crystal Cove Hotel

Is it really a big problem to get any sunshade at this hotel? Do we really have to rise at 6.30am. to bag a beach umbrella? or are there any palm trees that we can sit under and sup our rum punches. We go on 25th May, looking forward to the hot sun but from time to time need just a bit of shade.

I am afraid the 'sun bed' mentality is alive and kicking in Barbados, I have taken this issue up with a couple of managers but nothing seems to be done about it - the attitude seems to be if you can't beat them join them.

There is not much natural shade on the main part of the beach but to the LHS (as you look out to sea) there is a big tree which offers some shade

Not really the ideal solution but if it is (deplorably) as bad as some suggest .....I would personally invest in my own sun shade ( with the management's agreement) ...better than sunburn or stressed holiday

Did this once in Spain and surprisingly the hotel paid for it ...after all they have responsibility to provide for ALL their guest not just those who get up early
