On arrival at crystal bay we were welcomed by very friendly staff. Our room was not ready as we had arrived before the check in time. However the staff were very accommodating and got a room ready within an hour. When we got to the room which stated it had a 'garden view' we were very disappointed to see that... More

Pros: Excellent staff service and friendly too! Extraordinary beach view. Secluded beach. Spotlessly clean rooms. Really comfy beds (considering it was a 3 star hotel) Wi-Fi everywhere!! (even reaching as far as the beach). And the FOOD ... incredibly sumptuous - can even rival the local shops out there in Koh Samui (Tip: order their Tom Kha Gai). Cons: No... More

We had been staying budget so decided to book one of the best rooms at Crystal Bay and were really looking forward to some great views in a more spacious room. It was only when we arrived (having taken a taxi all the way from Chaweng) that they told us the room was no longer available and we were downgraded... More

The location is definitely scenic as you can see in real time if you make a search for “Samui webcams” on the net. The beach is quite pleasant and comfortable for strolls; although there is a big difference between high and low tide with low tide exposing more unsightly fields of rocks. (Suggestion: wear appropriate footwear when going in the... More
