Just returned to reality from an amazing vacation in Barbados. My sister and I stayed at the Crystal Cove with our daughter's and I'm glad we chose this island and this hotel. It was worth the near 24 hours of travel to get there. The view was absolutely beautiful and our room was in the perfect location for us. Our patio sat facing the pool and the beach. The entire staff was extremely friendly and accommodating throughout our entire stay. A special thanks to our servers Tanice and Delores, and our awesome bartenders, Kareem, Sheldon, Delano, and Victor! Their customer service was exceptional and we really enjoyed their company! Like we told Claire when we were checking out, 'we will definitely return next year!'
Thank you for making our vacation so enjoyable!
Cheers!
Michelle

My family and I recently stayed at Crystal Cove and we couldn't think of one thing to find any fault.
The Hotel is in a great West Coast location with great views and if you want to travel it is easy to get around on the numerous busses that work the Island.
The beach was fantastic and there are many water sports on offer to.
The food was great and the evening entertainment was pretty good.
All the staff were amazing right from the cleaners to the bar staff and the girls who run the two restaurants.
All in all it was a really fantastic experience and we will definitely be back.

The Milan Family.

Just returned from a week's vacation in paradise! This resort of 88 rooms was perfect for us. The entire staff throughout the resort was friendly, accommodating and genuinely concerned we were enjoying our stay. Everyone greeted you with smiles. We requested a room in the quieter area of the resort, upper level, and were pleasantly upgraded to a full suite with a breathtaking sea view, room 241. The rooms were clean and well kept throughout our stay. Plenty of towels. Several excellent, delicious choices on menus in both restaurants. The gardens are lovely. The architecture of this resort is impressive. Beautiful beaches and pools. Water sports lots of fun activities. Refreshments served on the beach including jellies, drinks, and popsicles. The staff went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met. Evening entertainment and dancing. All in all Crystal Cove is a superb resort, the staff is what makes it so special.
We will definitely return.

On arrival you can't help but be impressed with the beautiful view of the ocean. We were greeted warmly by Olivia the manager who congratulated us on our wedding and presented us with rum punches while we were checked in. As it was our honeymoon we had booked an ocean view room which also included a bottle of sparkling wine and petals on the bed. When we entered the room we did have a lovely view but no wine or petals which was a bit disappointing. Overall the room is nicely presented but it is tired around the edges, especially parts of the bathroom. That evening we had to go back to reception to hand in a form and were asked if we had our wine or petals. That evening, while we were at dinner, the wine as well as a card from the hotel were placed in the room but the petals never did materialise. It would have been nice if both had been present when we first arrived in the room. The beach and pool areas are lovely and really well maintained, as are both restaurants. On our first night we were booked into drifters and a beautiful table was laid out for us, a lovely touch. We ate in drifters more than reflections. We preferred the menu and also the layout, the tables in reflections felt a bit squashed in. Overall the food was very good. The cocktails were great and we especially liked the rum punch and mango colada. We really liked the cave bar and in the evenings there is a lovely terrace to sit on and enjoy the entertainment. We probably won't return as we don't tend to visit the same place twice but we did have an enjoyable stay

Following a St Lucia wedding we flew to Barbados for a weeks honeymoon. I don't think we could have had a better time.

We were upgraded to a suite on arrival compliments of the hotel. 5* service all the way. Beach was beautiful with the perfect design of sunbed.....each one has its own canopy. Stephen does a fantastic job of keeping everyone topped up with cold drinks, ice creams and jellies.

Cocktails expertly mixed. Food was overall good. Please remember to take long trousers for the men to eat in reflections.

Amazing hotel that we will definitely return too.

This was our first trip to Barbados, and our first all inclusive. we arrived late at night, which i would not reccomend. but the next morning the views were beautiful! room was very nice, and big patio with ocean views. Food was just so-so. Not good, not bad. We felt they watered down the alcohol, as did other vacationers. The pools were small but nice. The cave bar that looks so cool in the pic, was really not that great. It seemed old and the bar was messy, seemed it needed to be remodeled. The water taxi was one of our most enjoyable days. we took it to the sister hotel (cannot remember name, but the closest one). This had a beautiful pool bar, and the food was very good. it cost us $150 that day but we didnt mind. We decided we would not do an all inclusive again. We like to get out and try new food and restaurants. Our kids are grown, and it seemed this was much more of a family resort. Overall, we had a great time, and one of the best things about the trip was the service and staff @ crystal cove. Everyone was very helpful and nice to deal with. The concierge was awesome, helping us pick our excursions. we recommend the cool landings cattermeran, the raegae bus, and spend an evening in St Lawrence Gap. Great time! this hotel just not the place for us.

Room Tip: we had 2nd floor corner room near the pool , excellent views.
