Beautiful hotel on the beach

Posted 20-Oct-2014
Pros: The all-inclusive included a variety of water sports too!
We had a wonderful stay at Crystal Cove. The ocean-view room with balcony was a dream. The not-too-big resort had 3 pools and was right on the beach! The staff was extremely attentive and provided excellent service. The food was wonderful throughout our stay. I would definitely book this hotel again.

Lovely hotel, shame about the leaky roof!

Posted 21-Sep-2014
Pros: Great food, friendly staff, convenient beach.
Cons: The reaction to the leaky roof was the only really disappointing thing.
Location: Lovely location. Oistins area on a Friday night is pretty good for food, drinking and dancing, and the hotel provide transport!
Lovely hotel. Excellent food, friendly staff and gorgeous private beach. Sadly, our roof leaked when it rained, in 2 or 3 places. We reported this but we weren't moved and the problem wasn't fixed. The hotel was quite busy but it was treated as 'just one of those things'. A real shame, because the rest of our experience at this hotel was really good.

A pleasant surprise

Posted 17-Jul-2014
Pros: Position of the hotel is wonderful;small / private beach. Its staff are only too anxious to be attentative. Good array of complimentary water sports
Cons: Rooms were fine but a little tired . Bathrooms need some updating but didn't spoil our stay.
Location: Not much near the hotel but buses/ taxis are cheap. The beach is the centre of the resort. Nearest town (Holetown) is about 5 -10 mins away.
Just returned from 7 days at Crystal Cove and we have to say that it exceeded all our expectations. The hotel, staff and ambience at the hotel/ resort is set up to make your stay feel special. Ideal for a celebrations or a 'special' trip. Staff are so friendly and made the trip for us. Catering is good with two contrasting restaurants. Rooms are adequate but not luxurious.Public areas are in more up to date condition. We had an ocean view Junior Suite just off the beach which suited us very well. Only a few steps from the beach so easy to pop back during the day. The resort is off the main coast road , about 20 mins from Bridgetown There is a complimentary water taxi to visit two other sister resorts in the region. Otherwise you may want to hire a car (as we did) to travel further afield. The resort will suit groups looking for a relaxing/ safe stay. Plenty of water sports for older children/ teenagers. Not so close to a main town which will limit appeal for people looking for nightlife.

Lovely hotel with pools and beautiful beach.

Posted 07-Jul-2014
Pros: The hotel was clean, beautifully furnished and all the staff were very helpful and friendly.
Cons: Its a little rough round the edges and could do with a bit of sprucing up here and there.
Location: There are regular trips to see the turtles, only ten minutes in a boat and a ship wreck. The hotel is just around the corner from the Cliff restuarant
This was our first foreign holiday for a couple of years and it did not disappoint. The weather was beautiful and the people are extremely friendly. We had our 4 year old little boy with us who loved every minute, including the excellent well run kids club.

Excellent all inclusive

Posted 27-Jun-2014
Pros: Food and beach are the best
Cons: The toilet plumbing
Location: Great shopping in Bridgetown, The Cliff & Tides restaurants are excellent. Lots of water sports in the hotel and snorkelling is a great experience.
Great holiday in a great setting, beautiful grounds and beach. The staff are friendly & helpful and the food is excellent. Every meal at this hotel was outstanding with good choices for lunch & dinner. The breakfast buffet is the best we've had & we have stayed in many hotels. The plumbing can be a little disconcerting at times but hey this adds to the Bayan experience.

attractive beachside hotel

Posted 07-Mar-2014
Pros: Layout of the hotel. Extremely friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: Restricted beach swimming area, with some hidden rocks
Location: Excellent water sports facilities, run by friendly staff, which are included in the hotel price
Attractively designed, open air hotel, situated on St James Beach. Staff were outstanding - very friendly and helpful. Food was ok most days, but is included in your hotel price; the buffets (opposed to a la carte menus) were the best.
