We stayed at Crystal Springs as part of a professional road cycling training group, specifically because of the altitude of the resort and the training routes in the area. The resort accommodation was good and the general amenities and service of a high standard. The only complaints we have - units are not serviced on a Sunday - which is... More

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 family and I have just spent a week at this resort and we had an incredible time. The buildings are quaint... wooden with thatch roofs and a wooden deck with a spectacular view (the units are situated on a cliff face). The units were on the smallish side but modern and sufficient for our needs... in a beautiful area... More

Had a really great holiday at RCI. They have all the facilities you could possibly require and a lot to keep the whole family busy. Great views!.. Only negative thing i could think of is how puffy the pillows are!

Beautiful views and the location is great. The 4pm check in is inconvenient with littlies having to bath and get dinner after a long drive. Reception staff sounds like robots reading the rules - lol. Unfortunately we got a 2 bedroom bungalow, which has one double bed downstairs and 2 single beds upstairs. With 3 kids and 3 adults, it... More

Beautiful place with great chalets that are well kept and very clean with a view to die for! We had a great time and enjoyed the swimming pools and games room. Restaurant was great! Check in was quick and very professional. Bushbuch trail was great, even for the kids. Thank you so much. Will definately visit again.

The wet rainy Weather diminished 3 days in to our Holiday then we were able to see what Crystal Springs had to offer! The Hikes we did were fantastic. The best for my Children was the Bushbuck trail, which although tough gave the best scenery. The Reception,,Restaurant and Games Room was a 2.5km trek, so prepare yourself for a long... More

Just come back from a week in Crystall Springs. This place has really awsome views and do yourself a favour and do the well maintained hiking routes of between 3-4 hours. BUT.... learned a lesson, make sure you are BOOKED INTO A SINGLE unit - stayed in one before and this is really nice and modern. This time we were... More

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

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...
