The all inclusive Elegant Hotels ethic is distinguished from other resorts of the same ilk by its relationship with the nation as a whole. You're actively encouraged to explore the island, and have loads of fun as you discover Barbados.

Oistins Night

A weekly culinary sensation, Oistins Fish Fry on a Friday night is where locals and tourists alike head to the south coast to savour some rustic dining on local seafood and enjoy the buzzing atmosphere. Crystal Cove will be recreating the vibes of Oistins with a range of local authentic dishes at Drifters Restaurant for some beachside dining. Guests can look forward to a feast of local fish marinated and cooked live on George’s BBQ grill. Delicacies include granny’s fish cakes with Mount Gay Rum cocktail sauce, fried flying fish with Bajan pepper sauce, grilled sweet potato, fried plantain, calypso rice and pumpkin and ginger soup. Musical entertainment will be in the form of a local popular DJ who will be mixing sounds of Oistins with everything from calypso to reggae to set the scene and local artisans will be at the resort selling local crafts and souvenirs. This experience is complimentary for all Crystal Cove guests.

Bridgetown Heritage Tour

Barbados’ capital is often overlooked by guests and offers a genuinely fascinating array of attractions for visitors to the island. Exclusively for Crystal Cove guests, this day long tour will soak up the most beautiful architecture and historic buildings in the capital as well include visits to the Mount Gay Visitor Centre, Kensington Oval, St. Mary’s Church, Parliament Buildings, Garrison Savannah and the Prime Minister’s Office. There will even be time in the itinerary for some duty-free shopping in Bridgetown followed by lunch and a trip to one of Barbados’ most beautiful beaches, Brown’s Beach, for a spot of snorkelling and relaxation. This tour costs £12.50 per person and includes drinks and snacks.

Heritage Night

These classes are free for guests, from beginners to seasoned players.

Road Tennis Classes

Road tennis is the little known national sport of Barbados – unique and exclusive to the island, road tennis involves a ‘skinned’ tennis ball, a stretch of road for a court and wooden paddles to bat the ball between two players. Easy to learn and fun to play, Crystal Cove staff will be on hand to show guests how to master this local sport as well as set up some tournaments for a vigorous work out. These classes are free for guests at Crystal Cove.

Rum Shop initiation

It is said there is a rum shop on every corner of Barbados and that liming (Bajan slang for relaxing) at a local village rum shop is an essential part of the Bajan experience. To test this theory, Crystal Cove staff will be coaching guests on how to ‘lime’ and really learn to relax, chill and clear their minds of any stress, by teaching them rum shop games. Dominos is a national obsession in Barbados and Crystal Cove staff will teach guests how to play slam dominos like a real Bajan as well as drink some rum based forfeits. Guests can also sample local rum shop snacks including corn beef and biscuits as well as cheese cutters made with local salt bread. This experience is free for guests at Crystal Cove.
