Crystal Cove by Elegant Hotels

4* out of 5 stars

Crystal Cove by Elegant Hotels, in tropical Barbados, lies on the West coast of the island and features spectacular white beaches and cerulean waters. As you explore the resort you’ll find verdant garden views and scenes of the coastline everywhere you look. Inside, meanwhile, you'll find a contemporary, chic and intimate feel while you enjoy a highly personalised service. Such spectacular surrounds are ideal settings for a romantic break, honeymoon or wedding, and Crystal Cove Barbados caters for all. An all-inclusive premium resort, this family friendly environment includes a kids club, meals and drinks included with afternoon tea served everyday. Crystal Cove appeals to sophisticated romantics, families with older children and those simply seeking laid back, quality family time.

With a multi-tiered lagoon you’ll be able to lounge in the sun before cooling down in freshwater, there's even a swim up bar beneath a cascading waterfall. More active water explorations include thirty-minute snorkelling trips (where you can explore the reefs), complimentary wind-surfing, sailing, kayaking, and water-skiing. There's a complimentary water taxi between select West Coast Elegant Hotels and the Flying Fish Kids Club to enjoy too. And don't forget to make the most of the Beach and Pool Ambassador, providing scented cold towels and refreshments throughout the day.

For activities on land you’ll have the run of the resort and enjoy the use of two lighted tennis courts and the gym. To get a taste of local culture, the resort provide Bridgetown heritage tours, steel pan classes, road tennis sessions (a national sport unique to Barbados), a heritage night full of carnival themed dancing, limbo and fire eating spectacles, and finally an authentically Bajan rum shop initiation experience. 

Massage, facials, manicure, hair styling and other spa and salon services are yours to indulge in too meaning those well-deserved pampering sessions are never far away. With an idyllic backdrop and plenty of activities, you can either lounge in paradisal surrounds or get active with one of the many complimentary watersports on offer. Crystal Cove has something for everyone, situated in a beautiful beachfront location.
