We had a wonderful stay at Crystal Cove with our nearly 2-year-old son. The atmosphere was just so warm and welcoming. Absolutely loved the Bajan vibe! This is our first time in the Caribbean (but hopefully not the last!). Would highly recommend this hotel to other parents. Initially it was school term time so there were mainly toddlers. However, we...

Have just returned (sadly) from this hotel..... What an amazing trip! We were away with our 2 children aged 15 and 12.... so not always easy to keep everyone happy, but at Crystal Cove we had smiles all round, for 10 whole days! The all inclusive watersports (including motorised) kept my 15 year old son occupied all day, every day....

This Hotel is very quaint and people friendly. The layout of the Hotel is such that all rooms/apartments are close to one another and there is only a ground and first floor. There is easy access to all of them. There are 2 restaurants, Reflections and Drifters. Reflections is a solid building with an open front and they mainly serve...

Loved the hotel, the beach, the sea, the staff, but we had a really noisy room. It was next to the service path and from 7 in the morning to 10 in the evening when the band left, trolleys rolled up and down the concrete. It was every day. And during the day said trolleys were often parked up right...
