Dear tamgo, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at the Crystal Cove Hotel. It is unfortunate that you did not think our hotel was the right choice for you, and that the group that was in-house impacted your stay. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that it may have caused during your stay. The maintenance concerns have since been shared with the Rooms team as we aim to resolve these concerns. We have since received new sun loungers for the beach and changed cushions as we definitely continue to improve the beach experience for our guests. Training is ongoing with the Food and Beverage team as we strive to improve our service standards to all and aim to exceed our customers satisfaction as your satisfaction is very important to us. We welcome you back to enjoy any of our other Elegant Hotels properties, in the not too distant future. Warmest Regards Sophia Babb General Manager

About midnight. This is not the place to go if you are looking for a wild time. It's very low key. There are usually singers/bands on in the evening while dinner is served, this ends at 10.30pm then it's quiet.

Is there room service at Crystal Cove, if so is it included in the all inclusive?
You don't pay for the food but there is a flat fee charged to the room. I think it was about 7$

Not that I am aware of. Seaweed seems to be a problem on the east coast where the big waves bring it in.
