DISAPOINTED

Jan 2022 | E647CLpaulah
Beautiful location /tired looking &little run down , We found the staff (not all ) quite rude! !! Inexperienced (people skills ) Maybe a little more training wouldn't go a miss ,, When the young lad comes round beach with tray & we asked for a drink he says ok &doesn't return , And the list could go on !! I wont be returning.

A sense of paradise

Jan 2022 | wayneb652
Just spent a very enjoyable week at Crystal Cove following a cruise and few days on the east coast of the Island. The resort is of a medium size, giving it a reasonable level of choices and facilities, but not too many people or condensed rooms/villas. Service was very friendly and the choice of food very good. Elements of the fabric in our room could do with upgrading but it certainly didn’t detract from our enjoyment and the benefits far exceeded. The only significant issue for some may be the regularity with which the beach is closed or ‘red flagged’, 4 of the 7 days we were there. We noticed that many other beaches/resorts were accessible during most of those days, so it would appear to be an issue with the location of the resort/rocks etc. Something to keep in mind of water sports is a priority for you.

Not a four star hotel

This hotel does not feel like a four star hotel- the hotel is quite tired- our bathroom was in desperate need of a refurb with a leaky toilet and broken flush. Some staff were lovely and helpful but the majority of staff at the restaurant and bar seemed completely disillusioned and on a major go slow (way beyond Island time!). The resort is also unsuitable for young children - having to wait for a scope of icecream for 30 minutes and 45 for a basic kiddy meal, also pools of water left unattended around the pool area made it very slippy and dangerous. Have given three stars because the location is lovely on the beach and the house keeping is good (most days) also friendly staff in kids club. However, definitely would not return here.
