We stayed at Crystals some time ago and I have been meaning to write a review for some time. This was a fantasic and off-the-beaten path small hotel. The hosts Martin and Monica treated us like family and even cooked dinner for us one night. On another night we all went together to hear Martin's brother's band. The view, the... More

My husband and I spent 6 nights at Crystals for our honeymoon. We stayed in the Papaya cottage, which has the most beautiful sun deck ever and a fantastic outdoor shower. The hotel was quiet while we were there but despite this the wonderful owners, Martin and Monica, put on guest cocktails each night, talking and chilling with us. By... More

Spent a good 4-5 days here in the 3BR Villa overlooking the Pitons with two other couples, it was absolutely magical waking up to that every morning, the open living design gave way to some of the best views you'll ever find, great kitchen facilities, awesome charcoal bbq, very refreshing pool if not eccentricly designed, has a great story behind...

My partner surprised me with a trip to St Lucia for my 30th birthday. The research he did to find accommodation honestly paid off. Crystals is a family run business which is unlike anything you will have experienced before. The owner aims to avoid any of the tacky or commercial influences of your run of the mill resorts and has... More

Overall, Crystals was an amazing place to stay and I highly recommend it. The place is hidden away just a few minutes north of Soufriere. It is very private, with amazing views and incredible accommodations. We stayed in Callabash cottage. As with the other residences, it had its own pool and separate deck overlooking the Pitons with a view of... More

My wife & I just returned to Vancouver from a 10 night stay in the Papaya cottage. We booked this last June after spending significant time researching our options. We were expecting a vacation that is unique & certainly NOT the typical hotel or condo experience. The reviews that we read are so accurate,so I will not be repetitive. Crystals... More

We stayed at Crystals as part of our honeymoon. It was a short visit, just three days, and we wished we would have stayed longer! We wanted a more remote, quiet, unique experience and that is what we got and more! We stayed in the Sugar Cane and we really loved it. Yes, the bedroom is upstairs and the bathroom... More

We chose Crystals based on the reviews and because we really wanted something different. Crystals is different. We stayed in Papaya solely for the views of the pitons. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate with us- it rained every day- but it was lovely to sleep with windows open and wake up to beautiful surroundings. Overall our stay was good-... More

Thanks Guys happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Crystals and our food in the restaurant.

All hotels have different decor thank goodness, and we are elated not to... More

Crystals is the perfect island resort. Close to the beach. Big decks to lounge and tan. Private pools. Copious amounts of alcohol available, new cuisines and friendly people with awesome accents! From the first time we were greeted at the entrance to the dreaded day of departure we were well taken care of. Everything was beyond my imagination and exceeded... More
