Very disappointed and not worth the money!!

Chansen454 (Piney Flats, Tennessee) on Feb 16, 2024

Stay away from this resort. It desperately needed renovation and repairs. It was way over price for the marginal food and drink quantity. Some staff were friendly and very helpful but most were not. We are lifetime titanium Marriott members and this ranks in the top 3 of the worst Marriott Resorts we have stayed in.

Chilling poolside at Crystal Cove Barbados

karendK3877MY (Toronto, Canada) on Feb 13, 2024

3 great pools to cool off in and a large beach. Securing beach or pool loungers never a problem. Great poolside open air restaurant for breakfast and dinner as well as a beachfront bbq for lunch and select nights Oceanside dining. Resort was well staffed - we never had to wait in line for food or drinks. Looking forward to returning next year.

Amazing Place! Negative Reviews too harsh.

Tara C (Kingston, Canada) on Feb 11, 2024

We were there in Jan (17-26) we really had a nice time. Food was good (not spectacular but also nothing to really complain about). Would have loved a bit more a la carte, especially at lunch but definitely something to eat for everyone! Rooms are a bit small but absolutely fine. We were in Rm 119 ocean view and would like that room again if when we return one day. The resort itself is a bit dated yes but not falling apart, still allows for a wonderful and relaxing holiday. We will go back at some point as we really had a marvellous vacation. Staff is really great. Just be kind and polite (there’s always that one iykwim). Beach was great, pool was so nice and loved the cave bar. We made many good memories here! Shout out to Kathy and Jensel who were so kind and went above and beyond. Also the egg guy (we failed to get his name but he is funny, kind and one of the best omelette makers I’ve had!)

We had a wonderful time. We booked a garden room which ended up being on two floors with seating area as well as two bathrooms. There was a small patio outside. The food was good and the drinks more than plentiful and varied. The beach was lovely with plenty of sun loungers. Loved the opportunity to visit the other hotels by water taxi if only to have a view of the coastline. Bus stop outside so easy to get to Holetown, Speightstown and Bridgetown. The taxi rank is opposite the hotel which we used to get to Huntes Gardens and the airport.

Fantastic staff in an idyllic location

chris o (Wanstead, United Kingdom) on Feb 05, 2024

Lovely staff: cheerful friendly and very helpful. The location and beach are beautiful and buses run past the hotel every few minutes. We really enjoyed the food and looked forward to mealtimes. It was lovely to be offered drinks and Ice lollies as we lounged on the beach. We took advantage of the free water taxi to visit waves and tamarind hotels for a few meals. It was easy to walk between these hotels too. The yellow buses are cheap and fun to use for visits to speightstown and holetown. The hotel most certainly is in need of renovation but this does not detract from its general level of comfort and cleanliness. Maintenance is on hand and very efficient if issues do arise. Staff throughout the hotel are worthy of the highest praise!
