We had a wonderful family holiday at Crystal Springs. Very comfortable accommodation, wonderful "kudu" hike, tennis, heated pool, superb games room with Patrick arranging a movie and making popcorn for the children. The restaurant served delicious food at very good value and the staff were absolutely wonderful with Nadia at reception being exceptionally helpful. The only negative was the old... More

Our weekend trip to this tranquil lodge was short but sweet. Some problems experienced was the patio roof leaking right in front of the entrance sliding door, the toilet seat's bumpers was broken and one missing and the shower was mouldy. The service in the restaurant was somewhat prompt and we enjoyed a good breakfast.

We decided to extend our honeymoon with a few days after Maurituis and checked into crystal springs for 3days. Lovely resort. Place is well maintained. One thing to remember. Take your own towels. They do supply towels in each unit. But only refresh it every 4 days. In the clubhouse the warm swimming pool were ice cold and we were... More

My two sisters joined me for a weekend away and this place was absolutely perfect for us. However, the tranquillity was marred by uncouth loud neighbours, playing their hip hop music and singing along loudly. Thankfully they went out somewhere for dinner and checked out the following morning. Management cannot be blamed for inconsiderate guests. We took note of the... More

Braii on the balcony, watching the sun go down over the mountains. What a relaxing three nights, jacuzzi,pool and restaurant on site. Very central to visit attractions in surrounding area. Must visit this place for a third time!!

Arrived at around 4pm on Friday afternoon. Check in was quick and painless. Was very surprised as to how massive the resort is. Our cabin was surprisingly spacious and extremely well equipped. We had seriously over packed. Lots of plug sockets available. Internet reception is a little iffy but if you hang off the balcony of your cabin you might... More

Just returned from Crystal Springs from a weekend getaway with a group of friends. Very serene place away from the rat race. Spectacular and gorgeous views. Ideal place to get away from the city life and take time out away from the big city lights. The lodges are just ok, full kitchen and fairly clean and serviced daily. There's a... More

We stayed at Crystal springs for two nights but by the first day, we realized that we should have stayed for a week! The Lodge is set on a beautiful piece of land and is laid out in a way that you do not feel claustrophobic... the only down fall is that the chalets are a distance from the main... More

Superb views over the gorge and great walking trails made for an enjoyable weekend getaway. With the changeable weather and spells of thick mist, it is advisable to pack warm clothing and rain gear. We found the units to be clean and well stocked and the complementary firewood was a bonus. Beware the baboons and monkeys!
