Stayed in two bed apartment during our honeymoon. It was very spacious and modern. Taxi to camps bay was 50rand, very reasonable. View from apartment and sunset was unforgettable. Good view of table mountain on other side. Would definitely return :)

We stayed for one week at these apartments in from 15th Jan. They are very modern and have all conveniences (washing m/c, dishwasher etc), but no wifi and the tv was not the best as it kept going off. Good quality furnishings and decor throughout. Bathroom modern with a rain shower and plenty of hot water. Maid service every day... More

I decided to opt for a self-catering option for my four-day stay at Cape Town, and was recommended The Crystal by my tour operator. And I wasn't disappointed. The girl who checked my wife and I in to our apartment came back later with a bottle of South African sparkling wine as she had been informed by our tour operator... More

A lovely apartment with two bedrooms with ensuites. a good size sitting room and kitchen. The place had fantastic views of the ocean and was close to the restaurants although we did get a taxi at night as we didn't fancy the walk up hill and didn't know how safe we would have been. The staff were very welcoming staff... More

We stayed in a studio. The view of the ocean from the room and pool was obstructed by telephone cables. Two lovely pools. The room was great. The highlight was the well equipped and modern finished kitchen. The deck was great but not enough privacy offered from neighbours. Basement parking is provided for guests. There are elevators to apartments of... More

We have just returned from 2 weeks in a 2 bedroom apartment at the Crystal. The apartment was lovely. It is nicely furnished with all the amenities you need. The view over Camps Bay is stunning! The pool area is nice but could do with a few more sunbeds and the water in the pool could have done with being... More

My spouse and I stayed at the Crystal for 10 glorious days and found all the amenities to be superb. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment with the most amazing view of the beach and the amazing mountain ranges. The unit and complex is perfectly located. The complex has both a heated and cold pool, providing endless hours of... More

We stayed at studio apartement and it was nice spacious and cozy. Very modern. Bed is huge and comfy ( not so soft). View is really nice. Private indoor garage with 24h security guard. Neighborhood is quiet. Restaurants and beach is about 30min walk, bout 5min with car. We really enjoyed staying there.
