We spent 4 nights at Crystals on our Honeymoon in July 2014. This is a perfect place for secluded sensation. You won't find anything comparable views & pool wise at this price and views are on par with anything from Ladera, Jade Mountain or the rest of the super expensive places. Waking up is like waking up to paradise and... More

We stayed in the Sugar Cane cottage, where the view was breath taking and the inside was charming and cozy. It felt like a home away... More

We've been to Crystals several times and it's truly one of our favourite places ever. The cottages are all different, all beautiful, quirky, charming, extravagant and super-comfortable.

We spent our honeymoon at Crystals, 10 nights in Sugar Cane and 1 night in Silver Palms, and we had a wonderful time. Right off the beaten track, it's an oasis in the middle of the jungle.
