Sea and beach are beautiful best I have seen water is clear and calm. Water sports provided were fantastic including a water taxi to sister hotels Tamarind, Waves & The Colony Club. The staff were very attentive but lacked overall coordination in terms of information given. One of the selling points for this chain is the dine around, where you can eat at sister hotels. We managed to eat at Waves twice with it being cancelled on many occasions because the quota was reached little did we know that families with young children got priority. We found that from Waves, Crystal Cove were not aware of this.
The food from the buffet mostly was not edible due to it being left so long over cooked and tough. A la Carte was ok although the choice was very limited.
The room we were given down by Drifters bar was very dated and nothing like the website pictures. We had to ask for our bed sheets to be changed as they were dirty and had not been changed by house keeping.
Although there are negative views here we did enjoy the holiday mainly because of the location by the beach
We stayed at this beautiful,clean hotel in August, every staff member was so friendly and could not do enough to help you . Its very relaxing Hotel but enough things to do. The water sports was great and so easy to book. The drinks were really good ,especially all the cocktails. The two restaurants were both very good and the food was varied and plenty of different tastes. Would definately return to this hotel and would recommend it.The rooms were very spacious.
