A neat and clean resort with great views. Only negative aspects were the bathrooms that were ridiculously small and poky and the kid's games room that barely had anything in it to keep little ones entertained. The hikes, mountain bike trails and drives in the reserve were the highlights. We were quite unprepared for the cold weather in November; it... More

If you have not been before I would think it is worth @ least one visit. The negatives would be not having a flat screen TV, or DVD player.., which is not absolutely vital to have.whilst on holiday., One has to be on there guard with regards to baboons & monkeys not to mention the resorts grass cutters whom shattered...

What a stunning place to go to get away from it all. The accommodation was perfect for the two of us. We loved the food from the local Restaurant and the staff were friendly and gave us excellent service. We had the most amazing views and loved the fireplace during our winter stay. There was so much to do that... More

This will probably be my last visit to Crystal Springs mainly due to the timeshare units not being maintained. Stayed in a 4 sleeper, one bedroom unit which needed a good spring clean, the carpets and upholstery needed a good clean. The bathroom required a good scrub. The TV's need upgrading to minimum flat screens, TV reception/signal also very poor.... More

We had an amazing stay. It is such a beautiful place and so quiet. The food at the restaurant was wonderful and also the pizza. We loved the pizza so much! Although the room we slept in was small.( 4 adults and 2 kids) It was nice and cozy an nice and warm :) Would defiantly go back :)

We spent our 30th Wedding Anniversary at Crystal Springs in September 2014. Once again, we enjoyed our well deserved break. We were surprised by an anniversary dinner bought to our unit which my Daughter arranged with Jake and Tyrone. They went the an extra mile to do this. They haven't had the request before, which was hard to believe as... More

My husband and I stayed at Crystal Springs with our two boys from 18-21 March 2011. We were very impressed by the beautiful layout of the lodge. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit which was modern, well equipped (microwave, stove, fridge and breakfast nook in kitchen) and sparkling clean. Our covered deck had a built in braai and was... More

OK, so here is the bottom line. This is a very comfortable resort located in a very beautiful mountain region with many great places for hiking and sight seeing. We stayed with friends in a two bedroom villa which was clean and comfortable. We brought in groceries to have breakfast in the room before going out for the day. The... More

Crystal Springs is a very nice and quiet resort. We enjoy the surrounding mountains and the beautiful view from the chalets. We love to make fire in the fireplace every night - its just a pity the fore wood is not replenished on a daily basis. The chalets are old, but clean and kept clean by the wonderful cleaning ladies.... More
