Went here for a day tour. My dad really wanted to surf and this is the closest surfing spot from Manila (3 hours away from Manila).Clean place and clean restroom. The campsite is cool. A very relaxing place but it is not luxurious. Staff are friendly and helpful.

My first visit here was 3years ago, and the latest one was last month. I can say that they improved big time! We pitched out tent that is near beachfront. I'm not sure if it is 380 or 390pesos per head that includes an overnight stay and pictching your own tent. PROs: You have an option to pitch in an... More

If you're up for adventure and not a luxurious trip--I recommend Crystal Beach Resort. I read reviews about its small cottages and bed concerns. Try reading more about the amenities and get an update on weather for better expectations. If you plan to surf, wait for Habagat.

My family and I stayed here last May 2015 in 2 cottages, Abednego (for 4 pax) and Malachi (for 2 pax). We wanted a surfing vacation but, when we got there, the water was flat so no surfing. If you want to go there for surfing, they said to go in June onwards. I guess that's our fault for assuming... More

Check-in straightforward. We were in a group reserving four rooms (2 rooms at 2 persons each ; 1 at 5 and 1 at 10 people). Only the larger rooms were ready for us as the people who were in our rooms STILL could not check-out for some reason. So we waited patiently. Service from the dining area stared painfully slow...

NEEDS BIG IMPROVEMENT ON SERVICE: -Have a bigger reception area or at least put staff that are efficient and accommodating. We arrived at the resort at 12:30PM and we understand that the check-in time is 2:00PM, but it would be good if the staff who welcomed us from a 5-hour ride from Manila were warm, instead we were told (with...

A perfect place to stay and be one with nature... Nature at its finest... Open and huge sleeping areas. the breeze of the ocean will definitely be felt inside the cottages no need for aircon if you want to feel nature. Huge beach front to accommodate almost all the guest. Clean surroundings, team building area to explore, clean beach, clear... More

It was my first time visiting Crystal Beach Resort and it was a very relaxing and wonderful experience. The place is really huge. With campsite, movie treat at night, great buffet breakfast, clean and safe facilities and friendly staff. I enjoyed the beach very much and watching the sunset with some friends.

I got another taste of another beautiful place in the country that I would probably go back to again and again. Staffs are highly commendable, a lovely campsite filled with pines and chirping birds overhearing the sound of waves crashing on the shore, Hammocks, bonfire and other fun activities are set up around the area for team building activities.

I've stayed at this place twice. It is best to come at this place with zero to minimal expectations. It is after all a budget resort. What will keep you coming back is the favorable service and fully trained staff that will make u feel like you are most welcome. Other budget resorts don't bother to train their employees and...
