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.
Our stay at Angler Apartments met our needs to a tee. We wanted a self-sufficient, convenient location that had a restaurant to suit our dietary needs. Chandra, the owner, provided us with everything we asked for and was a good source of information. Angler Apartments is not a high end hotel but we were not paying high end prices. We would recommend this accommodation to anyone who wishes to be independent and explore the island. By the way, the beach that Angler has access to is beautiful.

Set 100 yards from the beach, this hotel offers 14 apartments, 3½ miles from Holetown; 6 km from Bridgetown. All apartments …More
What a great place to stay. When I read previous comments about how friendly the staff were I thought perhaps they were being polite, but seriously - the peeps at the hotel (in fact everyone we came across on this delightful island) were genuinely lovely, friendly and most welcoming. The hotel's 246 restaurant serves some cracking dishes (I can recommend the chicken with creamy sauce and tagliatelli (the sundried tomato was inspired) and hubby loved his curry. Shrimps in Barbados are humungous (I'd just like to quickly mention how good the chips are too with lunch shrimps!) and Daphne's next door also does quite a mean steak. I can highly recommend Tides (Holetown) for something a bit special (our wedding anniversary dinner) and for a day out, catch a Reggae bus into Bridgetown - an experience! Barbados is special and the stay at Tamarind will only enhance that. May I also take this opportinity to recommend the services of Paul Payne for an excellent Island Tour.
