We spent two weeks at the Yacht Club over the New Year. The bungalow was nice , slightly quirky from the point of view that the "Wardrobe" was made of wooden sticks, open to view from the main room - BUT this did mean that our clothes were able to breathe, so didn't get at all musty or damp despite...

We stayed one night at the Crystal Bay Yacht Club on our way back to Bangkok from Koh Phangnan. We had originally booked a beach view bungalow but because of overbooking, we were upgraded to what was referred to as the poolside bungalow - which would probably be better described as a cliff side bungalow since it was set upon...

My Parents and I stayed at the Crystal Bay Yacht Club for three nights over New Years. We booked two cabins, and both were very nice. I had the Garden View cabin, my Parents had the Beach View Cabin. the bathroom in the Garden View was much bigger and had both a shower and a bathtub. The beds were comfortable,... More

I have been living in Thailand for almost two years. My family came for a visit and we wanted to spend a few days in the beach. We choosed this resort for the good reviews, price and beautiful pictures (reality is not like the pictures!) . Normally I check reviews very carefully in booking.com, agoda and tripadvisor. I have to... More

The restaurant, bar and kitchen is under repair and modernisation. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The cove is beautifully quiet and peaceful. Sadly rubbish does float onto the shore from elsewhere but the hotel staff react quickly early morning and clear the beach. This, I understand, is a growing problem for all Thailand beaches. The rooms are clean... More

My partner and I have just spent 5 peaceful and idyllic nights at the Crystal Bay Yacht Club. I can now understand why some reviewers came for a few days and stayed for a month or more. It is difficult to explain how beautiful this location is and how lovely the hotel. It is not polished or pretentious but understated... More

We stayed almost a month at Crystal Bay and it became like home. Great staff, lovely bungalows, big bathrooms. Special thanks to ... everyone. From the girls at the reception desk to the restaurant team. We have not been easy customers, rather boisterous, always in need of something or other. French in short. But what's best than an early swim... More

As a local, I go there offen for its beautiful beach and lovely food. The restaurant there used to be wonderful but my recent visit was disappointing. I heard that there has been a mangement change-over. The spring rolls as one of tourists's favorite Thai dishes used to be so good and hand-made but now they are just tiny and... More

Sorry you were dissapointed in our restaurant when you visited. We have made a huge number of improvements to the resort since we took over in July, but there are still a few areas where are working hard to improve. However, I am very happy to tell you that our restaurant is currently having a multi million baht refit and... More

Very good location on a wonderful Beach (even if THE best access to THE seaside is from THE other end of THE Beach). Big and silent rooms, good breakfast. THE restaurant is med level, quite high prices vs THE general offer. THE staff is kind and helpful. Very good and romantic place to stay! Good price.
