Crystal springs is such an amazing place to stay. we were originally going to stay there for three days but ended up staying there for five days and we still could have stayed longer. My Fiance proposed to me at Crystal springs and i could not have asked for a better place for it to take place. We went out... More

It is a neat well looking after resort with amenities for adults, children and elderly's. The staff are friendly and helpful, while everything is clean and well maintained. My daughter enjoyed the play room every night, walked to there with a friend in the dark without feeling threatened. The restaurant has a typical european feel around it. The food are... More

We booked the 3 bedroom lodge this past weekend for a family of 6 adults! The entire lodge was well kept and VERY spacious. The beds were the best part of the trip - extremely comfortable with crispy bedding! Worth every moment, I would recommend it to everyone and anyone - the indoor heated pool tends to leave a "bleached"... More

This is our second visit to Crystal Springs and we spent from Monday to Friday there. From the time we arrived and went through security until we left we experienced such helpfulness and friendliness. The reception staff were extremely welcoming and made sure we were told about everything. The two bedroomed unit was beautiful and the deck just great, with... More

What a lovely weekend we had at Chrystal Springs with friends. Definitely a place we will return too. The unit are modern and the beds sleep fantastic and of course our view was breathtakingly beautiful. The amenities and facilities are very neat, modern and well kept. This did not even feel like a timeshare resort. They surely maintain the resort... More

My family and I spent a week at Crystal Springs in March this year. I absolutely loved it. The place is beautiful! It was amazing getting away from the city life and experiencing some relaxation in the nature. We had two cats that visited our challate every night(which I really liked). The challate was just the right size and had... More

Since our last visit to this juel in nature a year or two ago, things changed a bit. As I looked through other reviews, I could share some feelings of disappointment. "Deteriorating Facilities". Share/stake holders should look into matters to avoid negative feedback that could harm/damage this juel. We will return again next year depending on reviews of experienced travellrs.

We stayed from the 1-4 May 2015, the staff in the restaurant and cleaning were lovely, the chalet was lovely and clean, the TV as someone else mentioned is archaic. This is not appropriate for long stays with children. The restaurant food is delicious and huge portions. The only thing that I could fault Crystal Springs on is the reception... More
