“It felt like visiting family!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2010

I can't say enough about my visit to the Blue Crystal Resort. We were greeted by the friendly staff, and escorted to our room. Their friendly and sincere attitude was evident from the first moments we arrived. The level of service was unparalled, and any need or want we had was provided. They arranged for all my diving, as well as helping with transportation. The food and service was first rate, and the staff, attentive without being intrusive. Each day our room was spottlessly cleaned, and the rooms are well appointed. I highly recommend this resort for people who want to get away, to a quiet place and be content. The beauty of the resort is its isolation from all the hussle and bussle of the town or Sabang. Yet both places are just minutes from the quiet solitude of Blue Crystal. I was very happy I made that choice. For novice swimmers and snorkelers, the reef in the small bay has many varieties of fish and is easily accessible. Most days the water is flat and very safe. I will definitly visit the resort again, and look forward once more to visit my new "family"!

We booked this resort 6 months before we arrived, courtesy of favourable reviews from users of this site. There was 13 of us, mix of Canadians and Pilipino's and we all had a fantastic time. The service at the resort was exceptional, even putting together a last minute anniversary party. The rooms were clean and well maintained. When the power went out the back up generator was started very quickly (common problem on the island).

The resort is a bit out of the way, but they arranged pick up and anything we asked. Boat and snorkeling gear, motorcycles, all transportation. They really went out of their way to make it a vacation to remember.

This resort is so lovely...we found peace, tranquility and we were able to relax well....the staff are very accommodating, they always smile as they served you...the accommodation is reasonable (its cheaper)...the food is good and room is nice...BCBR has a good management...
I just want to recommend if the management and the people around living in the area if they could do something to take care the aquatic life, preserve it thru taking out the garbage's on seashore and stop thoroughly fishing using fish net and digging the corals under...i noticed that corals are already dead...i hope city government of Palangan will do something on this....the Area is so beautiful...it can attract more tourist if u preserve your coral reaf...

This is a good place for those who want tranquility and peaceful environment. . . The resort staff are nice and friendly. We were given personal attention by the staff during our stay. We used the swimming pool exclusively. However, there were some hitches like the hot shower were not functioning, the beach are not suited for swimming because they are dirty and filthy, and the foods are expensive. But overall I am impressed with this resort. . . .

this happened last year... arrival to white beach is so stressful, your like a celebrity except they're not there to get your autograph or picture, people offering tours/accommodation will be swarming towards you. And they don't easily go away, so just make sure you have reservations or have someone to pick you up, I know we should understand that our kababayans are just trying to make a living (I still hope they don't commercialize too much it should be a place of relaxation and peace) Anyways we didnt have any reservations but one call and someone was already there to pick us up. Our tricycle driver is Mang Pablito he is so kind, compared to others who will take advantage of you. Arriving to the resort we are greeted warmly by the staff. I forgot the names, sorry mga ate. First thing, rooms, super clean! better than what we expect from the pictures online. The pool is clean and well maintained as well,we practically have to ourselves,and best thing about that is the ocean is just overlooking... Hmmm... I like the hammock near the sea water, relaxing. About the food, its expensive but the serving is big so we just shared, its cheaper that way, from what i remember the food that we ate was delicious. the restaurant is on the 3rd floor i think,in the morning.... we requested for our breakfast front our rooms (veranda)and the staff gladly gave our request. We only stayed one night but the experience is very good. If your looking for a nightlife, this is not for you, this is far from town. The place doesnt have an actual fence or anything dividing it to the residential houses w/c is quite far but I still feel safe since people there are friendly and kind, so if ever you lose something, it could either be your fault or one of the guest (hehe). Oh yah, maybe they could also spend sometime cleaning the beach area, that one is a negative and also just this one time there was a dog.

It's always nice to come back to our castle named Blue Crystal. The whole resort is really like home to us. The staff gave us the best service. The place still enchant us after all the visits we've made to that place. The swimming pool is really a nice addtion to the resort and the beach is really fantastic with its inviting clear, turquoise water. We will come back I'm sure.
Thanks a lot!
