Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Crystal Cove by Elegant Hotels sits on an idyllic stretch of beach on Barbados’ beautiful west coast, looking out to the Caribbean Sea and perfectly situated for taking in some glorious sunset views.

Rooms at Crystal Cove by Elegant Hotels

The rooms and suites have a laid-back, sunny feel, inspired by both the traditional villages of Barbados and contemporary style, as well as the tropical Caribbean colours, with brightly coloured, nature-themed wall art and vibrant rugs adorning the tiled floors.

Every room has a furnished patio or terrace where you can take in the views of the lush gardens, the pool, or the ocean, and you’ll be just steps away from the pool and the beach. The suites are especially spacious, with separate living areas with comfy sofas, and, in some cases, loft bedrooms.

Food & Drink

The main restaurant, Reflections, lives up to its name, with a great location both next to the pool and overlooking the ocean. Make the most of a variety of buffet and a la carte dishes, with a different international theme each day.

Other options include Drifters, a relaxed beach bar and restaurant serving delicious Caribbean cuisine, and Vista, where a nightly tapas selection is paired with fine wines. The Beach bar and swim-up Cave bar serve refreshments all day.


If you like to get a workout in during your travels, the fitness centre is equipped with cardio and weights equipment, while beach and community walks are organised every morning – a healthy and sociable way to start the day. Meanwhile, tennis fans will love the two floodlit tennis courts, so you can enjoy a match day or night.

Activities at Crystal Cove by Elegant Hotels

Given the hotel's beautiful beachfront location, water-based activities are high on the agenda, with water-skiing, banana boating, tube riding and stand-up paddle boarding all on offer, and snorkelling is a great way to discover the vibrant underwater life that lives off the coast.

There is a great kids club if you are travelling with the family, while couples can enjoy the buzzing bars, restaurants and nightlife that can be found in nearby towns.
