Spanning multiple levels along Barbados' famed West Coast, this modern all-inclusive resort with its cascading pools app
Spanning multiple levels along Barbados' famed West Coast, this modern all-inclusive resort with its cascading pools appeals to all ages. With 88 rooms and suites in cottage-style units, this intimate resort is more charming beachfront village than hotel. Even the three lagoon-style pools that merge at a swim-up bar framed by a delightful waterfall add to the magic.
Where to start...
The resort is amazing. Small, quaint, quiet, peaceful, beautiful and just as we remember it!
I could go on and on about the royal treatment we receive from this resort!
There were a ton of Tourist that were furiousnwith the noise on the resort, for me I just blocked it out, I was not aware and truly didn’t care. It’s a resort that is open 24/7, we went during off season we would expect renovations to be done while we were there. They really have no better time!
As always we will return!
This was by far one of the best trips I’ve taien. Upon arrival, we were greeted with some delicious rum punches and dinner reservations had already been made for us for that night, which was super helpful. The only slight hiccup was they gave us the wrong room key and our bags weren’t in the room when we got there, which was quickly fixed and was really a non-issue.
The property and rooms were well maintained and you could always see staff cleaning up or maintaining the grounds, offering you a friendly smile as you walked by.
Staff in general were truly amazing and offered you a stress free experience. Resort staff would often come up while at the pool and/or beach offering drinks, fresh fruit, and even warm cookies!
Dinner service was not rushed and they allowed you to really enjoy the food and experience. There were only two dining options on resort, but had the option to go to other sister properties. I recommend trying to get your name in early if you’re looking to do that because it was difficult to get a reservation. They also offer afternoon tea, which I recommend if not only for the little scones and finger sandwiches.
Non-motorized watersports were also available, although we unfortunately did not take the time to do this. They have a gym facility that has your basic gym equipment to get a decent workout in. Nothing too fancy, but it got the job done.

where is the best place to stay for snorkling on beach in Barbados?2 answers
We (husband and I), are looking for a simple, clean place, right on a beach. It would be nice to have a reef right there. We don;t mind cooking our own food, prefer a view out of the room. Any suggestions?

I wanna go there
According to mydestination.com, Most of the diving takes place on the west and south coast barrier and fringing reefs: from Maycocks Bay on the north-west coast to South Winds fringe in the south-west. There is an incredible diversity of marine life on these healthy brightly coloured coral reefs.
The best place is along the west coast and the "Best" charter is by a young man who has a humble yet safe boat by the name of Roderick Clarke. His company is called: "CHOICES" and he operates a glass bottom boat. What makes his business the best is that Rod as he prefers to be called, takes the extra effort of carrying you along the calm waters of the western shore just off the parish of St. James. There he anchors off a shipwrecked boat and prepares you with snorkel, mask and life jacket for weak swimmers. Rody actually gets in the water and brings a package of shredded fish to feed the turtles and when they come to eat the fish treats, Rod takes pictures of you under water which become a lifetime of memories. Just look at my shoots and you'll agree he's the man for the job. My wife & I observed others charters and none of the others were as professional or as concerning. And we did not see any other charter get into the water or take pictures. If you went out with someone else and did not have a camera, you miss your opportunity and none of them get in the water with you.
Crystal Cove resort. We hardly got any suntan for we've been snorkeling most of the time, hehehe....right from the beach, didn't have to make a special boat trip.GREAT PLACE.

Once you see the sea and beach, you'll be ready to play. Try your hand at mastering the wind and water, whether on a pair of waterskiis, a banana boat, a
kayak or a sailboat.
Feel like a casual dinner? Burgers, pasta and chicken at Drifters Beach Bar fill the bill. Prefer elegance and romance? Try roasted-vegetable
kabobs or sirloin steak on tarragon-mashed potatoes at Reflections. And if you
simply want something different, ask about the dine-around program. As a guest
of Crystal Cove Barbados, you can dine at any Elegant Hotels restaurant; so
board a water taxi that connects the resorts.
What would a Caribbean resort be without calypso music? The hotel often has
live entertainment with Caribbean rhythms, or island jazz. One perk here is the
personal hammock on select guest room balconies. On a moonlit night with a cool
sea breeze, you can spend the evening just chillin' in your hammock.
Welchman Hall Gully is one of the hidden treasures of the island. Hiking
into this unspoiled tropical forest gives you the chance to step back in time
300 years, seeing the island as it once was. Another treasure concealed in the
central uplands is Harrison's Cave. It seems as though you've entered a
different world in this natural wonder of crystallized limestone. And no visit
to the island is complete without a tour of the Mount Gay Rum distillery, a
cultural icon on Barbados and considered to be the world's first.
