The Crystal Cove is one of three Merit hotels, the Royal and Premium, all in the same cove and all in sight of each other, they are holiday hotels NOT holiday complexes. The Crystal is probably the least upmarket of them but still to a very high standard. The hotel is in the middle of major extension works, though currently...
