I stayed at Crystals in May 2015 and it was absolutely amazing!! The rooms were spectacular offering both luxury and earthy comfort. The restaurant; esconsed between trees is absolutely to die for, the rum punch is a must have. The staff are all extremely friendly and eager to serve. The owner is an absolute gem! I would definitely stay there... More

Beautiful decor - Professional service and I wont forget to mention how amazing the food and staff were (especially the rum punch). I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants...

I was privileged to experience pure bliss at one of St. Lucia's most captivating getaways. Crystals,situated on the out skirts of Soufriere, is by no stretch of imagination, a subsection of heaven. The thing I love most about this place is the overwhelming presence of flora and fauna, on both the inside and outside, which gives it a more naturalistic... More

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
