First time guests. The toilets seemed like they were designed to clog when flushed. Other than that everything was good. The air conditioning kicked butt. The pool was clean, the access to the beach was excellent and the private'esque beach front we had at our disposal was nice.

My husband and I have stayed at the Crystal Sands several times in the past and never had any problems. This year we decided to do a family vacation, big mistake. We stayed in 301B West. The condo was advertised as 2 bedrooms & loft, this was very misleading. It was a 1 bedroom, loft & twin beds in the... More

This is the third time in 5 years that my family had stayed at Crystal Sands. I would rate our first two experiences as "good". Our most recent stay was a different story. The carpet in our condo was disgusting. It was all matted down and stained. The furniture in the bedroom was outdated. The mattress was old and stained.... More
