The Crystal Cove is situated on an amazing stretch of beach on the beautiful west coast. The hotel rooms are a little dated, but this doesn’t matter too much as the staff are so friendly and will do anything to help you have a great time. The All Inclusive food, which we were initially wary of, is really good quality. The New Years Eve party this year was exceptional. The efforts of the team made for a superb night. Wider barbados is also amazing, we surfed with turtles and enjoyed a cool running’s cruise. The hotel feels COVID safe with vigilant mask wearing and sanitising throughout. Thanks to all the staff for a superb Christmas.

Hotel's Favourite
From the minute we booked to the minute we left this was, after the year we have had a real pick me up. Celeste on reception was fantastic at sorting our quarantine stay at Treasure Beach along with the staff there. Celeste also welcomed us at Crystal when we arrived and made our check in a breeze. The first night we were there the water main burst outside on the road meaning we had reduced pressure, but the hotel again were first rate at keeping us informed and sending out for bottled water. Joan in reflections was amazing under the circumstances with reduced staff obviously trying to keep everything running smoothly. The room was kept spotlessly clean with new beach towels and bedding everyday. I know a few people had various issues but we were the first group of holidaymakers since March and teething problems are the least of our worry’s after the year we have had, but on the whole nearly all of us really enjoyed our stay. A big thanks to all the staff for making our holiday so trouble free.

Dear Stepon01, We were extremely happy to learn that your holiday was all that you expected it to be and more. We were glad to learn that you enjoyed your welcome by Celeste and Joan's smooth running of the food and beverage operation in Reflections Restaurant. At the hotel we are sometimes faced with situations which happen beyond our control and yes indeed we have to work together with external companies to ensure that everyone is comfortable during these times. We thank you for your understanding when we dealt with low water pressure on site. Thank you also for your warm words and we look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future. Continue to stay safe! Warmest Regards Sophia Babb General Manager

We stayed here in December and have been very well looked after. It’s our first holiday with our 9 month old and the staff could not have made it easier. We have a few days left and wish we could stay longer. The staff have been fantastic, the hotel is very comfortable and the food is excellent. I wouldn’t hesitate in staying here again.

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday at Crystal Cove. Before we traveled, we arranged to isolate at their holding hotel- Treasure Beach. This experience was also great, we had a second Covid test the day after we arrived and after 48 hours we were free to leave. We had a lovely welcome from all the staff at Crystal Cove and they couldn’t do enough to make sure we had a great holiday. We felt very safe in the hotel & out and about exploring Barbados. Everyone is taking the Covid situation seriously and following all protocols. Thank you again to everyone at Crystal Cove & Treasure Beach for all your hard work and for making this holiday actually happen! We would love to return & highly recommend.

We are here and I have to say the hotel go above and beyond to manage this situation - we have been in our room confined for a day and a half have had second test which was delayed due to labs work load, however the hotel and staff were efficient and supportive! 2 teenage children in one room who felt safe and catered for! For us we all feel it’s been worth the hassle and procedure! Patience and kindness will get you past the difficulties! I would totally recommend Crystal Cove and appreciate all their efforts!
