My wife and I are from the United States. We were both exhausted from driving and flying 8 hours. When we arrived at Crystal Cove, we were greeted by a gentleman with a smile, who knew we were tired! He immediately gave me and my wife some water and a menu. This employee immediately showed us to our room. Within...

This is our second visit to Barbados so we tried a different hotel. The room was lovely, well laid out with plenty of storage space, good mirrors and a view over the beach bar to the sea. Breakfast was buffet style with something for everyone. Lunch and dinner were available as a set menu but it would have been nice...

We arrived at Crystal Cove after a last minute change to our honeymoon, we were meant to be staying at a hotel in St Vincent, but at the last minute our travel agent changed the booking because of a variety of issues the island and our hotel was experiencing, following bad storms and flooding. So it was only by chance...

My wife and I came to Barbados for our honeymoon, and although there are many places in the world where a gay marriage will be difficult to celebrate. The staff at Crystal Cove, made us feel just like every other honeymoon couple. On our first night we were treated to a special table, decorated, and with a personalised desert wishing...

staff friendly. Excellent hotel. Rooms were beautiful. Food all that you desire including drinks on the beach. Excellent position on the beach. Dietary needs well catered for. Local buses at the front door. Water taxis to sister hotels also gave easy access to other parts of the island.

We love this hotel, and we agree with most reviews that they treat you like family, they looked after me as there is some foods that I can't eat, and I just had to tell them what I would like and they did it for our evening meal. We had room 226 and it was lovely, we are going again...

Definitely mixed. Delivery falls short of expectations. Many good things – which is why we returned – such as friendly, positive staff, smaller community feel, plenty of sun loungers, ice lollies, drinks taking round to you at the beach, choice of restaurants, good cocktails, wonderful surprise special champagne in Barbadian colours for Independence Day (30 Nov). However, apart from the...
