I am a time share owner at this resort. Frustrated by the lack of care given to the villas. I have owned the time share since 2006. The VERY SAME bed cover is still being used! We visit for at least two weeks per year. In general, I have to call the front desk for items such as a coffee... More

I read all the reviews about Krystal before making an RCI exchange. I was somewhat skeptical about going there because of some of the reviews, but we had to use some time or lose it. The Krystal was one of the few resorts that was all inclusive optional. We just can't eat and drink enough to make it worth while.... More

This is a good hotel to stay in; nice rooms with space and some with kitchen equipped with basic things like toaster, microwave, stove, blender, some pans and pots, cutlery and freezer which can be very useful. It has several swimming pools, the staff are kind people always greeting the guests. It has access to the beach, with nice spaces... More

I would never ever stay here. The staffing was horrid. Very few people were nice that counted. Stay away from here. The rooms are ok and the pool was ok. However, I would not chance staying here. The Hilton is next to it. Go to a place you know you can trust.

We stayed for 3 days in hotel and then most of a week in the timeshare section. Loved them both. The hotel is right on the beach. The rooms were very clean, the staff super helpful and nice. The resort is older but so beautiful with streets lined with huge palm trees and lots of fountains and gardens. There is... More

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time exploring the place. It was unique and charming. It was like back in the 1920's feeling. Palm trees, brick streets, real classy. We liked it. we had to jiggle the key to enter each time but it became a game to us. We have fun no matter what comes up. That is... More
