St James, Barbados

Trip Advisor Rating

Crystal Cove was named the 2018 Top 5 Hotels in the Caribbean & Central America via 2018 Conde' Nast Reader's Choice Awards.

Crystal Cove evokes the charm of a seaside Caribbean village and sweeps you away with striking ocean views and lush tropical scenery in a picturesque cliff side setting. Sunsets glow in a dazzling display of colour while you reconnect in an unforgettable moment.

Here, all-inclusive elegance means unlimited access to the romance and seaside charm of the Platinum Coast of Barbados. Walk hand in hand past brightly coloured village-style buildings and lush gardens. Descend to waves gently lapping against powdery white sands and where days of waterskiing, banana boating, windsurfing and other complimentary water sports beckon.

Enticing natural beauty and intimate moments are yours... toes-in-the-sand dining, tropical cocktails shared beneath a waterfall, free-form lagoon-style pools carved out of the cliff side and sunsets like something out of a dream. This is escapism at its absolute best. Effortless enjoyment waits around every corner of this picturesque resort.

Follow your natural love of adventure with complimentary water sports and activities. Or, reconnect with a simpler pace of life while Beach and Pool Ambassadors hand-deliver complimentary beverages, snacks, chilled towels, and more. Even dining is a special experience with themed events like Bajan Fish Fry and seasonal cultural entertainment. Crystal Cove grants you the luxury of never having to lift a finger.
