The delightful Crystal Cove Hotel enjoys an elevated beach-front location overlooking an idyllic cove on the west coast of Barbados. This area of Appleby, St James, is known as "Crystal Cove" and is bordered by glittering silver sandy beaches and the inviting waters of the Caribbean. Grantley Adams International Airport is a convenient 30 minute drive away.
The resort, part of the Elegant Hotels group, provides the ease of an all-inclusive stay in a tropical beach property and offers an extensive variety of activities, entertainment and amenities:
The swimming pools, bars and colourful guest rooms are situated in verdant, landscaped gardens leading down to the beach where the free sports and activity equipment is available. A team of Beach Ambassadors are also on hand to attend to the needs of the guests.
To provide an extra taste of the Caribbean, the hotel has a programme of entertainment which features local musicians performing typical calypso and jazz type music.
The hotel's Concierge staff will help arrange excursions to some of the island's other attractions - historic plantations, rum distilleries, subterranean caves or the capital city, Bridgetown, which is only a fifteen minute drive away.
All meals, beverages and house wines are included the holiday package. However, a charge will be made for bottled water, fine wines and champagne.
All restaurants and bars are non-smoking areas
This is Crystal Cove's more formal restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in an open-air, poolside setting. Reflections offers international fine dining and aims to maintain an elegant atmosphere.
Drifters Beach Bar
Bajan style grills and barbecues are particularly popular at this more casual open-air restaurant and bar. It is located close to the beach and is open for both lunch and dinner.
The Cave Bar
The Cave Bar is carved into the rock behind a dramatic, cascading waterfall. Guests can reach it by either swimming through the pool and waterfall or staying dry and walking through by another route. Either way gives the impression of sipping exotic cocktails in an out-of-this-world luxury cave!
The hotel offers a "Dine Around" programme with 3 sister hotels on Barbados' West Coast and provides a complimentary water taxi service between hotels.
Crystal Cove Resort also offers a choice of Honeymoon and Wedding Packages. Experienced event planners are available to coordinate arrangements for these special occasions.
