Crystal Cove teams a beachfront location with three grotto-inspired pools – complete with rock formations, waterfalls and a swim-up bar.
Crystal Cove is set in eight acres of tropical gardens on Barbados’ west coast, overlooking a white-sand beach. It’s got a peaceful feel, but is less than a 10-minute drive from Bridgetown, the island’s capital.
Tiered swimming pools wind through the grounds, accessorised with a bar hidden behind a waterfall. There’s a couple of restaurants, too, and activities like cookery classes and cocktail making.

Wonderful friendly hotel
We spent a really lovely 10 days at a Crystal Cove a couple of weeks ago. Our room was very comfortable, as were the beds. We had a good view from our balcony across the gardens to the sea. The beach is just lovely - soft white sand and turquoise water. There are three pools to choose from too. The staff were so welcoming, friendly and helpful. The whole atmosphere of the hotel is warm and relaxing. It’s quite a small hotel, which we really liked, and this adds to the friendly vibe. We don’t normally return to places, as we like to go to new places, but we would definitely return to Crystal Cove, hopefully sooner rather than later!More
Shown in the virgin holidays details as an all suite hotel which it is not
Patio doors do not always lock. Some rooms have been updated other not. If you get an updated room it’s very good . The old ones are poor had to move on arrival. Not what you need after a long trip. Water taxi to other hotels is very good. It has a great beach one of the best on the west Coast.More

If you’re expecting lavish and luxury then this is not the hotel for you, but if you’re happy to ignore the obvious wear and tear then you will absolutely love Crystal Cove! Service is a bit hit and miss but for majority the staff were friendly and went the extra mile to make our holiday a special one. The boat taxi to the other hotels is an absolute bonus - be sure to check out the other hotels, some of which are included within your all inclusive. Food at the restaurant (set menu choice of 3 starters, mains, desserts) definitely exceeded expectations, although the buffet evenings weren’t so good. All in all, we had a fabulous, chilled out week in the sun and would definitely return. More
Gem in Barbados
Friendly and polite staff. All inclusive did not disappoint. 2 restraunts Drifters Beach front or a more formal setting in the Reflections. All staff friendly and welcoming. All meals were presented and cooked to a high standard and drinks and branded alcohol are available. The grounds are beautiful and maintained by a dedicated team each day providing stunning outlooks from all rooms. The central area or hub revolves around the main pool and cave bar creative in design that has access from the pool through a water fall and an inner seated area. Up stairs is the visa bar that over looked the complex with fanned seating area and the visa bat it'self has aircon. This bar is popular open during busy time and provided tapas and cocktail or speciality coffees. So many fun nights in there. intimates but a great place to meet people. We went to celebrate our with Wedding aniversary and they did not disappoint helping us do that. Even though a lot of visitors were thee to celebrate something The staff made you feel special. The beach area is open to the public as all beaches are on the Island .This was not an issue and I can honestly say everyone we met were polite and welcoming. With the exception of Jet skis all watersports were included in the package and there was very attentive beach staff to help you out. The only note of caution is Jet skis are available but they are independent and not conceded to the hotel you hire them out at your own risk. The rooms are cleaned throughout on a daily basis and although not a critisism some of the bathroom plumbing was a little worn shower taps dripping and cupboard with tired draws. Certainly not the end of the world just an observation. All rooms had good sized bed and we're well presented. This is a more family or romantic place to stay for couples. it's not lively but does have entertainment most night that is of a good standard. The location is on the main Road between Bridgetown the capital and a 20 min bus ride and Hole and speight town about the Sam in the other direction. by taxi or much more fun the local bus what an experience but not to be missed. A beautiful resort with welcoming people and very well run standard expected are high and the staff speak highly of the opportunity to work there. I could not fault there welcoming politeness and genuine friendliness. I would recommend to anyone. Although is should be noted that there are a lot of Steps and slopes which might make disabling access and issue.More
