We have just returned from a 12 night stay at the Cristal.
We stayed in one of the Eco bungalows which are situated right on the beach and definitely made the right decision as opposed to the deluxe.
The place has a very casual, pole-pole (slowly-slowly) atmosphere.
The staff were very friendly & accommodating.
Paje beach which the resort is situated on is beautiful and goes on for miles, so ideal for long walks and stumbling on village life & the beautiful Masai's who sell there wares along the beach. Be sure to buy from them and support these natives of Tanzania.
If you are looking for a glitzy resort with non-stop entertainment this is not the place for you.
If you want peace and quiet in a comfortable and idyllic environment and to experience the real Zanzibar this will be the perfect place.
We recommend going out on the wooden boats to the reef for snorkelling, this also helps support the locals.
A highly recommended retreat that is quiet and simple.
