construction..would not have stayed if i had been informed..lots of noise at 8am....also fridge did not work...all in all a bad experience
On water, private beach, full amenities, very comfortable. Food prices were too high and they charge a service fee of 10% to every bill which is not the tip.
The lovely staff
Upon arrival, there was no room for us. The hotel was overbooked, First time experience this, Waited until they sent us off to the Marriott Hotel which was awful. Another 2 hours waited in Marriott lobby with my 12 year old until I was checked in. That's 6.30 p.m. They put us in room where the sheets stinks and cooler above us vibrate the room whole night. I asked to be changed, Marriott said they don't have any more rooms available. Sleepless night for me & my son. The next day, went back Radisson Aquatica, had to wait until after 3.p.m. to be checked in. The staff was really nice, but nice doesn't work when they overbooked their hotel and got us so stressed out, didn't even consider this a vacation. Also my son got stuck in one of the elevators, it was really scary, they had to pull him out between the floors. Radisson promised the reimbursed 1 night stay, please contact them for my refund.
After a long day of travel, we arrived at the hotel and they didn't even have our reservation. We talked to the front desk woman for about 20 mins and finally she gave us a room. Upon checking out the next morning, the front desk guy wanted to charge us more than we had already been charged for the room on the website. I clearly explained to him that we had already pains but he said he needed to charge us. I called kayak and they talked to him and figured things out. I don't feel like I should have to be calling your website to straighten everything out. You should have sent our reservation over and we shouldn't have had a problem. Luckily my phone worked because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to call. This mistake has basically made me not want to ever use your website for anything ever again.
Friendly staff, and clean comfortable room. Only one working elevator, and diminishing towels. Every day, housekeeping would take my used towels and not replace them. By the third day, I had 2 bath towels and no hand towels. Not a big problem, just a minor inconvenience. I'm sure if I had requested them they would have brought them.
I recently lost my husband, and this trip was my first solo adventure. The staff at the hotel - everyone - went out of their way to make me comfortable. They called me by name from the first day! They were concerned that I was not on a walk back from the Changing of the Guard (I had gone with friends who knew the way back to the hotel). They were very helpful when my flight times were changed, and I tried to work out all the details. I will certainly recommend your hotel to friends, and I hope to visit Barbados again (and your hotel) next year! I have no complaints!!
I was really impressed with the location. The beach was beautiful and at the time we were there we could always find a great spot to hang out. Additionally, it was close to catch a bus which was our favorite mode of transportation (we took the bus most days since it was only a dollar). The staff was great and gave great suggestions on things to do, restaurants, and directions. We had dinner in the hotel one evening and it was pretty good. I wish they had more of a selection at breakfast.
Barbados is one of the best islands in the Caribbean and the location of the Radisson couldn't be on a more beautiful beach! The staff is very kind and helpful. The price is very reasonable. Highly recommend!
Great access to beach. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Managers Monday evening happy hour provided a chance to meet other guests. Overall a very enjoyable stay. More choice for meals.
My family and I stayed at the Radisson for four nights. It was a memorable experience. Hotel is very clean and the beach beautiful. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. The Bartender, Jermaine did an excellent job with the drinks and he is great eye candy (lol). Our Waiter at breakfast, Selwyn was happy to share information and directions to difference places on the Island as he kept the coffee flowing. Wonderful experience and I am glad we chose Radisson Aquatica Resort. Retel It was a little too quiet for us in the evenings. Maybe a couple of nights per week they should offer some type of entertainment or have a beach party. Enjoyed the breakfast, but a wider variety of items would be nice.
Work and renovations all over - dust and noise Work and renovations all over - dust and noise
The staff was very accommodating. The location was great, they have one of the best beaches on the island in my opinion. I see this hotel becoming a five star hotel within a year once they complete the renovations. There is a nightclub in a walking distance and also a nightclub district within a short taxi ride. The food was good at the the hotel's restaurant as well. There are other close locations to eat as well. I recommend everyone try the fish, egg and cheese sandwich sold at a nice stand located next to the surfing shop.
We had three nights at the resort after 10 days on a catamaran in the Grenadines and it was great. Wonderful views, pools, and beach. Good food options. Will stay again!
Staff were wonderful from people working in hotel to people on beach. Hotel was immaculate, clean, and gorgeous! Great example of what a resort should be. Food was delicious. No complaints there. Wish it was all inclusive. AC in room didn't come out as high as we wanted. Seaweed on beach. All of Barbados was dealing with this issue. However The Crane had staff cleaning the beach/seaweed daily.
everything, it is the best hotel,very friendly staff,excelent swimpools , nice restaurants and pink sandy beach, charming
The hotel is located on one of the best beaches in Barbados and there is beach-side food and drink service for guests. We loved hanging out at the swim-up bar in the afternoons and the bartenders are very attentive and knowledgeable. The front desk staff was very helpful with coordinating taxis and tours. The hotel itself is a little run down/outdated. The lounge chairs by the pool are mildewed, the paint at the swim-up bar is chipped/peeling, and the tiles throughout are a bit dated. Also my friend Cari used the spa one day for a facial and said it was good/fair, but she had an entire second day of massage, manicure and pedicure that was cancelled on her without notice. She had asked to just re-schedule the massage for another time/day and instead all of the services were cancelled. When she tried to re-book them, she was told there was no one there to do the services. Not sure if the spa techs are just on call or what? The spa seems to be disorganized and poorly run. Also $70 US for 2 people to eat at the buffet seemed high for the quality.
The location was perfect as a over night stay after our cruise.the front desk was on top of things, right down to making sure we had a taxi at 5:00AM to take us to he airport. Nothinh
We truly enjoyed the Accra Hotel. The location is great! We were steps away from the boardwalk. There are stores and restaurants in the immediate area. Transportation was 100 steps away. This hotel is very convenient. The housekeeping staff was very efficient. The grounds were well kept. It was truly a good experience. The beach was perfect We didn't care that much for the food and it was a little pricey.
The hotel was quite aged. The room the put me in seemed very old. The ac was not working properly and it had a view of the dirt lot next door. When I checked my reservation I realized I'd actually paid for a room with a balcony and this did not have one so I called down to the front desk, they did not seem happy about this call but when someone came back they said they had a room for me. So they put me in a smaller room on the first floor, facing the street, but it did have a working ac and a balcony. Just not what I was expecting for the rate I paid! Everything seemed old, worn down and dingy.
Great amenities and location Staff could be friendlier
Climate, resort, friednliness:) Balcony and balcony doors were not clean.
relaxing all rooms close to the beach n staff very helpful need another restaurant that is high end
beautiful grounds, great beach, wonderful room the bed was terrible, way too hard. We were ready to bring our family reunion there until we slept on the the bed.
They have two resturatants. The Waters Edge is the best restaurant on the island. There other restaurant is possible the worst. You have to request a room that you like. they will try to put you in room that has no view. so just simply request better room and they will review vacancies and put you in wonderful room.This is not a complaint but just heads up.
The hotel is beachfront, nicely laid out, comfy, clean. It does not protect the guests from taxi overcharging - the only country I've been to (and I've been to many) where taxi fare from the airport to the hotel is cheaper than from the hotel to the airport!! Taxi overall is expensive, and there are no cheaper alternatives for families. Ocean waves were all the time too choppy to swim. Hotel could use renovation.
One receptionist, Katrina, was quite above average. Fast and friendly. For a three hours longer stay in the room on the day of departure I had to pay 75 US dollars. The hotel was not fully booked though!!!
We just returned from a trip to Barbados and thoroughly enjoyed the Bougainvillea Beach Resort. This was our second year visiting the resort and we found the room, service and staff to be excellent. The resort is ideally located near St. Lawrence Gap and has beautiful grounds and views of the ocean.
Very relaxing, every night they have some events to entertain. Staff are all lovely and kind but not too disturbing. Also it is very clear it cares about environment which is the best thing I see in such a resort island. Bed cover (top duvet and pillow) are not washed ages and smell bad. Hope they can clean it more often.
The beach was perfect - and the staff were very friendly.
Really friendly staff, good amenities and nice location
Pleasant staff, quick and efficient service, nice beach. The restuarant had very ordinary offerings re food...water's edge is deff not as advertised...food very ordinary and appears to be made in advance but the staff very pleasant and good service.
Big Rooms Stones in the Beach
The beach views are incredible. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The beach is lovely, with a sandy swimming cove. They also provide you with beach towels, lounge chairs, and a delicious continental breakfast. I love this place and would definitely return.
The hotel is great! Loved the beach out back and it was a perfect place for relaxation. The hotel is in a central location for hotel pick ups and not but a few minutes away from Bridgetown. Great food and great location. The hotel has some work to do on the wifi for hotel guests. The internet is slow and unreliable, but there are other places around that have better wifi. The only other thing was that the beds are a tad too firm for my liking but when your tired you will sleep...besides your there to relax on the beach not in the room!
Location beach transport Not enough wi-fi
the staff was awesome! room was very spacious and comfortable, air conditioned worked great. nice beachfront wifi sucked! no elevators. poor water pressure and took forever for hot water
Beautiful, large beach with chairs provided from the hotel. The room was clean. The airport shuttle was a great and made my travels through the island feel safer. Staff was very friendly and accommodating to any needs The hotel infrastructure could have used a face lift. My bed wasn't comfortable
Beach is excellent, balcony view of ocean was incredible.
WiFi did not work for the first 5 nights of our stay; the staff only gave us excuses and was not helpful. Finally after pleading and complaining as I required the Internet for work and to monitor emails, they offered us another room, so we had the added inconvenience of having to pack up all of our stuff, move then unpack again. I travel a lot and have been to Barbados a few times before, and this is by far the most unprofessional and unfriendly place we have stayed in. I wonder if its because we are East Indian or Caricom residents that we got this unfair treatment. So... We booked the hotel for nine nights. My mom and wife went first as I had to work for the first 4 nights back home. Before booking I called the hotel and asked about the extra person fee for the room and they advised it was USD 31.44 extra per night. On arriving I was advised that the fee was USD 48.38 per night extra. No problem I paid it. We had to call the front desk to get everything that should have been in the room for an extra guest even though we paid this fee. We got these things (cutlery, extra blankets ect.) at the hotel's convenience. We asked that the twin beds be arranged into King size and for two nights this was not done. The television did not work properly and after making multiple complaints, a technician came and said he would check it. Nothing was done until we changed rooms. When I asked the manager how they intended to compensate us for no Internet and a poor television signal for 7 days before we had to change rooms, also the inconvenience of moving and the untimely service, she said that she would reimburse us 2 nights of the extra person charge (USD 96.00) which I found was insulting but to close the matter and maybe enjoy part of my stay here, I said okay. When I went at the front desk and advised about the reimbursement, the person there reimbursed us for the 5 nights extra person fee which I thought they should have been the least they did, she then called after and mentioned she made a mistake and I have to come and pay the fee AGAIN (I told her it was USD 96.00, BUT she gave me another figure which I thought was the hotel trying to make amends). I had to check my credit card transactions when I got home to ensure I was not overcharged. There are other small things like a charge for changing beach towels, I have never seen that before, and the activities area only advise activities that are provided by the hotel...so many more little annoying things that made this trip annoying!!! It was also my wife's and my 5th Wedding Anniversary, it’s so sad that we are spent it there. Coconut Court has ruined what should have been a milestone for a young couple. We had our honeymoon in Barbados, it was amazing, and we have stayed at other hotels in the area and enjoyed ourselves. I travel through the Caribbean for work and have no problems. This was really a disappointing experience. . I will never go back to this hotel
Wonderful, friendly staff. Excellent security. Comfortable rooms. Well maintained beach.
Location was nice for walking to restaurants Would like to have had a coffee maker instead of instant coffee in room. Breakfast menu needs to be improved. Daily buffet would be so nice. the restaurant location is beautiful but underused because of its menu.
The staff were great, helpful and friendly. The breakfast is actually a great value as well, since food in Barbados is generally very expensive. We stayed at Infinity twice, first when we arrived into Barbados, and for our last night. We decided to return to Infinity because after traveling around the entire island, no other hotel offered the same value for the money. For the same price elsewhere, we were staying in shabby rooms located in far to reach places without a car. In comparison, the Infinity is a breath of fresh air. It simply has everything you want/need on your vacation minus the stress or cost. If we ever return to Barbados, my boyfriend and I would use the Infinity as our base for our entire trip. The pool isn't all that, but we didn't even think to use it with the beach just steps from the hotel. It would have been nice if we didn't have to pay for an umbrella on the beach. That really should come with the chairs. Nothing other than that.
We visited this past week.Hotel was at 50% capacity.The service was great.Room was a suite ,pool side .No troubl se getting reservations at sister hotel ,Almond bay village. Best ever Italian food and attentive service.Enids restaurant prepares island food,the best soups we ever tasted. The 100 yard beach is the only downside,full of rocks and coral.Walk 500 yards to a lovely beach on clear,calm water. Wait staff put on a fashion show in bathing suits,they were great.All adults only guests mostly from UK and Canada.Very friendly.Book a private island tour on your own $105.00 US for 3 hours.
The view, food and friendliness of staff Bed comfortable but quality of the room poor. Furniture tired. We were able to open patio doors but there was no proper balcony which we had paid for. The bathroom needed a complete refurbishment. The best part was the location with wonderful sea views.
The front desk/office staff friendly & polite, however the staff workers - the woman to be specific, were just the opposite. My husband and I travel quite a bit, and I've never met more impolite, hostile, rude staff workers. The standard room was very small to the point of uncomfortable but clean. The beachfront is unaccessible to guest to use for swimming, must walk down some ways for beach access. The restaurant food was average sort of bland, surely nothing to rave about. We were unable to secure reservations at the 2 other restaurants on location and at the sister hotel Almond Beach Village for dinner. The one restaurant ALWAYS available is mostly buffet style meals. Not at all what I expected. Beware the All-Inclusive has many exceptions and they push activities and tours on the guest which are pricey.
We stayed at the all inclusive for our honeymoon and could have been any happier. The hotel's food, amenities and location were all great to the point that we look forward to staying there again. You can pay more but that does not mean that you will get more. Also, the staff and the facility managed well. As travelers we are always looking for places that allow us unwind and be tourist and we do not quibble over small things.
Great place to relax for peace and quiet. No kids. The staff was very friendly and acommodating
Just returned from a wonderful week at the Almond Beach Club. The accomodations were great, the ocean was a stone throw from our balcony, and the bar was just around the corner from the room. The margarittas were fantastic. We love the water and the snorkling was excellent with a reef and two ship wrecks within an easy swim from the Club. The service was fair, but some of the workers took the time to learn our names and shared our experiences on a daily basis. The kitchen staff went out of there way to provide us with picnic lunches for our excursions. Meet alot of interesting people and made a lot of new friends. We were meet at the airport by an employee of the tour guide service. She had arranged transportation to the Almond and later meet with us to book our outings for the week. Everyone was on time and the trips were a lot of fun. I did feel like we were stiffed a couple of times by the locals. On one trip we stopped for lunch at a local roadside dinner and the prices were not clearly posted. The cost was to much for what we ate. There were no bargans when shopping for items to bring home. The locals were very kind and helpful when traveling around the island. We never felt anxious or uneasy when shopping. It was a wonderful week and I will return.
My friend and I booked this trip for a relaxing, uneventful, quiet vacation after some rough times at work and in life. We picked it because it's all inclusive and adult only. Needless to say, we had a fabulous time! From sleeping oceanside in the middle of the day then waking up for afternoon tea, to taking the Rum and Island tour, boat rides and snorkeling trips for relatively little or no money since all water sports were included in the price of the room. The hotel staff was fanastic by making sure to give us good tips on things to do around the island and always engaged in meaningful, genuine conversation. Our room was way more than we expected since it had a living room and a separate bedroom and a whirlpool tub with a shower. We definitely want to go again to experience some of the island's festivals in the future but it will not be soon enough.
My husband and I stayed at this resort recently and loved the staff and especially how they did the registration when we arrived. They gave us a drink and basically took us to our room...we have never experienced that before. The room we were in, wow. It was a suite and the living room had only three walls so one of the walls was open but the bedroom was air conditioned. This was the most romantic room we have ever stayed in. At night, we would sit and relax with a drink in our room but it was like we were sitting outside, with complete privacy. The Spa was amazing. We luv to work out and they had great equipment and a gym set up that not a lot of people were using. I did get a massage as well which was very relaxing. We also did the turtle swim which I highly recommend. Everything was included so this worked really well for us. We can't wait to go back and try one of the other Almond Hotels!
The sunny island, supper staff, best food and supper service, enjoy !!!
upon arrival our room was not ready, this was because the people 'checked out' and left all their things still in the room, but we were asked to sit in reception (which has the most amazing view) feed room service at the pool and served rum punch which made up for it all!! the rooms was beyond great, the beach beautiful and clean, the water sports are typical but the staff makes it worth it. the staff is great. friendly and very knowledgeable about everything! the food for breakfast was standard, but dinner was wonderful!! great selection, beautiful presentation, and tasted like a 4 star restaurant. we will definitely be staying here again!
I have traveled all over the world practically, this was my first time ever traveling down to barbados and i have to say,me and my girlfriend wanted to just get away from all our problems,hurricanes, and just ever day of life. We had a time of our lives, we've been to aruba, cancun, peurto rico, all the virgin islands,nassau, and pretty much all of mexico.This was the best vacation that i've ever experienced.the entertainment and atmosphere was outstanding.This was my first time ever doing a vacation all enclusive.The sunsets from our balcony each day is breath taking,I asked my girlfriend on the beach to marry me.The atmosphere couldn't have been any better.I strongly reccommed crystal cove
Not a lot of activities during the day and need to improve on entertainment at night.
I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Crystal Cove. The staff is amazingly friendly and helpful, the three pools are wonderful, and the beach is breath-taking. I can not say enough great things about the hotel and my stay there. The drinks were good, the food was good, and the whole vacations was great!!!!! I recommend this hotel highly!
loved the resort, small and personalized attention. I wish we could have stayed for 2 weeks = great place to relax. We had an ocean front room and spent so much time sucking up the view and the drinks!!!!! Be sure to take the yellow bus into town for the experience. We will be back every year. We loved all the restaurant staff. Even though there was room service throughout the day they need it late night or some kind of snack bar for late nighters! Loved our stay.
we chose this location for our honeymoon and wanted a destination neither of us have traveled to in the past. the staff was very friendly and do work better when tipped. we only encountered two staff members who were rude, the rest were extremely nice. you are very pampered and they are very accomodating. there was a distinct difference in the way that we were treated (as americans) and the way the british were treated. it wasn't rude, but a definite difference in mannerism by both staff and other vacationers. we were informed by one member of staff that americans make the them work hard and were obnoxious. the rooms were very clean, air conditioning worked well, you could always find something that you liked on the menu, the beer is nothing special, the wine leaves a bit to be desired, the island drinks will get you were you need to be if you ask for extra rum, and bring an insulated mug to go to the beach or pool to cut down on trips to the bar. bring 'aqua socks' for the ocean it is littered with rocks that will tear your feet up if you are an ocean dweller. the sister hotels nearby are not all inclusive, but the on on the opposite side of the island is. definitely take the included tubing ride.... you will not regret it. take a cab to the resort from the airport, $30-40 US. take advantage of all ammenities.
My husband and I just returned from our 6 night stay at Crystal Cove. We were sad to leave and look forward to going back again. We loved the room, the garden/ocean view, food, service and the beach. We really wanted to kick back and relax during our trip and this place was great for that. We did take advantage of the gym, tennis courts and some of the water sports too. We definitely recommend Crystal Cove to those considering a trip to Barbados.
Hotel is good for couples who are looking for a quiet place. Food was ok. Inclusive is not like I imagine it to be. They have set time for lunch and dinner and it is basically a sit down dinner and lunch is very limited food at the drifter resturant. Breakfast was a buffet, loved the breakfast. Beach water was too rough, definitely not for kids. One day the waters were calm when we were there. You need water shoes because of rocks. Nothing around the hotel as far as gift shops or local restaurant. But you will find the local “pharmacy” on the corner street if you know what I mean ;). AS I mention hotel ok for quiet couples. Free water sports for guest. Jet ski you have to rent. Many small sugar ants in bathroom but we lived with it. Water pressure was good. I will go back to Barbados but will stay at another hotel.
I've been to other island and hotels, and by far this was the best vacation I've ever had. The hotel was beautiful, the rooms was clean and well maintained. The staff was wonderful. I enjoyed the beach and the services provided. This was a very classy hotel, I will make this my only choice when visiting Barbados. Barbados is a Beautiflu country. I loved it.
I took my daughter to this resort to celebrate her 30th birthday. It was a quaint little resort tucked away for relaxation and solitude. The bus is outside the front door. The resort provides free shuttle service to Bridgetown. The food was very good but we found the drinks lacking and the bar tenders very unfriendly. The beach is lovely although the last 3 days the water was so rough there were no water activities. The resort itself is very clean but we felt it looked a little tired and needed a face lift. It was a pleasant week and we would definitely revisit this resort.
This was a great resort with a great location. We honeymooned here in May, and could not have been happier with Crystal Cove. The people were lovely, the food was really terrific, and the water was wonderful. If we ever go back to Barbados (which we hope to), we'll definitely stay here again. We got the ocean view and room and were very pleased with that choice. Make sure to take advantage of the kayaks, and wind surfing that they have on site.
This is nice resort but I would rate it 3 stars and not more. The service was good but very very slow. Keep in mind that in Barbados there are no private beaches. Security guards were there all the time which makes you feel better. The locals didn’t bother us, they were trying to offer all kinds of stuff to buy. Very nice people, they make you feel very comfortable. The variety of food is very limited if you compare to other all-inclusive resorts, not impressed at all. Birds are eating your food at the restaurant all the time, so don’t leave your plate if you are not at the table. This is a huge discomfort, not to mention hygiene. Kid’s friendly resort I have to say. Yes, we had a nice time, but for that amount of money I would get much better service in other resorts or other islands. If you willing to dine outside of the resort and have a lovely, elegant evening, try “ Cliff” Restaurant ,not far from the resort. Probably 5 min drive by taxi. It is very expensive but you will absolutely enjoy it. If you see a monkey running around at the resort, especially early morning don’t be alarmed or surprised. They come to get mango's from the trees . Overall not bad, but I don’t think I would stay again, at least not for the money I paid. p.s. Locals love to get into water and eat mango while they cool off. As they said, the salty water gives a better flavor to sweet mango….Enjoy!
