Fantastic place just away from the center of Lamai, the food is a bit expensiver than local restaurant but it was okay! Just 1 minute away you have the bamboo restaurant which is delicious, we recommand this hotel, however the bathroom was only partly been updated.

Great hotel in a secluded bay in silver beach. Peaceful atmosphere. Manicured gardens. Good buffet breakfast. ( you do not have to be a guest and pay for daily use of facilities). Great massage by the pool and beach. Magnificent views. Good background music.

Crystal Bay is one of the most beautiful beaches on an island full of beautiful beaches. It felt like paradise found. The sand is like soft sugar though there are large rocks and it's pretty easy to navigate your way out. The water is as warm as a bath, shallow for a long way out, crystal clear and you can... More

The pool, the restaurant and the beach is what make this hotel. One of the best places we've eaten at local prices. Exceptional views and white sandy beach. Very inviting pool which our kids loved and a prime location between Lamai and Chewang.

The hotel is placed in a good location, next silver beach which is one of the most beautiful beach of the island but it's a public beach so it's full of people. You have to go to the beach at 9 and between 10/11 am people start to come and it's impossible to find a place. The Restaurant is too... More

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you were not happy with your stay. The power cut must have been very annoying for you and I apologise for this.

This hotel has so much potential - but unfortunately they need some major improvements - mostly with the attitude and service of their staff. The restaurant staff in particular were rude, and made us feel like we were an inconvenience to them - we ended up avoiding the restaurant on most occasions. We stayed in a garden villa - and...

We stayed here for 6 nights. Our cabin was really nice and located in the beautiful garden. We had a mosquito net over our bed which was absolutely a must. But for the extra bed for our son they didn't provide one. We put one up ourselves. As for the beach, it's absolutely beautiful but NOT PRIVATE. Very dissapointing. They... More

Our stay here was everything we dreamed of. We were a group of 21 celebrating my husbands 60 th Birthday. Great beach, great staff, great location. The staff bent over backwards to accommodate our every whim. The food was great at the Talay restaurant, the staff was helpful. Ellis and Pel great! Many good times were had with happy hour!...
