Crystal Cove, a seaside colony of attached duplex cottages that are whitewashed and trimmed in the perky pastels typical of the Caribbean, appeals to both couples and families. Each room is bright and spacious with a balcony or patio, most have hammocks and a water view, and some are literally inches from the beach. Winding garden paths connect the units, which spill down a hillside to the beach where you can swim, sail, snorkel, water-ski, windsurf, or kayak to your heart's
content—or play tennis, dip in the pool, or take advantage of preferred tee times at Royal Westmoreland Golf Course and Country Club. Meals are bountiful and delicious—buffets and snacks at Drifters Beach Bar and a table-d'hôte menu at Reflections Restaurant. Each night there's entertainment in the form of a steel band or other live music. For a change of scene, a free water taxi travels all day long (weather permitting) between the three sister properties on the west coast. Crystal Cove guests can also participate in a dine-around program with those resorts.
