Stayed in ocean view room 321, the view was superb. The only problem was the sea crashing on the rocks which was loud at night and disturbed our sleep. The room was clean and tidy, but no tea/coffee facilies,we learnt later you could request a kettle at reception.
The food at the first part of week was really tasty and enjoyable.as the week went on the quality appeared to change for the worse, with next to no vegetables. In the morning you looked at the menu for the 2 restraunts and the booked which restraunt you wanted, The reflections menu on 2 occasions was different to the one we had seen in the morning.The Drifters lunch was our favorite, self service buffet
The hotel grounds are very well kept and beautiful you could not fault the location. The staff are first class and nothing was to much trouble. The hotel even provided a packed lunch for one of our excursions.
The beach was clean and tidy,and plenty of very comfortable sun loungers.
The only problem which might stop us staying at the crystal cove again would be the Moskito/sandfly bites have never been bitten so much at any resort we have stayed at. Really enjoyed the hotel. nice people,lovelly location shame about the beach bugs
