I can't really fault this place. The room we had was basic but met our needs for the night. The views from the restaurant was spectacular and the food was superb. I absolutely loved the delicious cocktails. The staff were friendly and polite. I would just say bring mosquito spray there are lots in the room.

The location is spectacular , the grounds are lovely and the massage area is perfectly located and wonderful . The reservation staff are abrupt and the cleanliness if the rooms is medium . Our sheets were stained and the AC worked in one villa and not another . When we drew attention to the moldy shower curtains and the giant... More

Great hotel for all types of trip. Their rooms are big and clean. The staff is really helpfull and nice. The beach is one of the best in Koh Samui. It is a secret paradise! The location is a little far away from the parties and night life that's why I recommend to rent a motocycle/ car.

This is a brilliant choice for families with children. Good space in bungalows that are cosy. Huuuge half-outdoor bathrooms. Clean and well-decorated. Order directly at hotel and get a good deal. Car rent just across the street. Cheap laundry 100m. Up the road. A handfull of restaurants very close to the resort and on the resort itself. Fantastic breakfast! The... More

The best resort in the area. I stayed with my family for 4 nights on early July and we enjoyed it very much.. It has well maintained gardens and great personnel. The beach is awesome, with some low tide. The beach scenery is breath-taking. The only drawbacks for me was a) the breakfast choices, which were limited and not so... More

we stayed at Crystal Bay for 5 nights. We loved the peacefulness and tranquility of the resort. We stayed in a sea view room which was a few steps from the beach. The room was spacious and adequate. The pool area is kept very neat and tidy. The Rock Salt restaurant is amazing and is on the same premises. Breakfast... More

I absolutely loved our recent stay here! We opted for the beach villa (literally on the beach) but really any villa would have worked because of the hotel layout! The staff was great, especially the bartenders and masseuses! Thai massages average to 300 baht but it is worth paying a little extra for a one hour massage on the beach... More

We stayed at Crystal Bay for 10 nights in June, the location was great and the atmosphere was super relaxed. The beach is beautiful and the resort is a little bit shabby but in a nice way. Massages by the beach were good value and really good quality. The staff at the resort itself were not amazingly friendly and not... More
