Nice hotel with great location. Renewed rooms, beautiful seeview. The breakfast was boring, for 15 days almost the same (no buffet). The staff was great in every department, they are friendly and helpful. KOB at the reception and MIN in the restaurant were the best! Massage ladies: 5 Stars! Thank you for all!

We arrived for our 7 night stay to be rudely asked to pay for our stay, which we had paid 6 months ago.. after being watched with unhappy faces from the staff (making us feel uncomfortable) I found the record of the transaction and not even an apology from them.. Shown to our room which absolutely does not look like anything from the website. We got 2 family rooms and are in the back of the building right next to the main road so all we can hear is traffic and people walking by all day and night. Our room overlooks water tanks and a cleaning area.. will attach a picture. Ants all through the room and not good amenities.. very basic for what we have paid. Sheets get changed every 3/4 days and after that amount of time (with 3 kids) you can imagine there will be wear and tear marks and had a member of staff come to find me with the dirty sheet to tell me they will charge me an extra 1000 baht — umm, try washing it first and not embarrass your guests by walking around with 4 day old sheets and chastise the family about it. It’s a hotel after all! The bar and “restaurant” is way overpriced and quite average too. All in all, a very expensive stay in a rather rubbish place with very rude staff. Not the Thailand I know and love. Very disappointing

Amazing location and even more amazing service. Our host Sonny made sure everything was perfect. Also helped arrange a MC rental for the week and very good price (shout out to Mr Pong’s!). The beach is so beautiful and the room was exceptional. Super comfy bed with lots of pillows and huge balcony overlooking the water. Very private. Very good food from the restaurant and overall superb service from everyone on the staff! Thank you for making our getaway special! Would love to come back!!

I booked a standard room but has issues with the toilet tank never settling down. The manager was kind enough to change my room to a family room that was huge. Even after switching rooms, there were times when the water pressure was weak. Although there were apparently problems with the waterworks when I stayed there, I don’t know if it was related to the water shortage. Otherwise, everything was terrific and I would love to come back if the above mentioned problems are dealt with. They have a beach area that is easily accessible from the hotel. There are restaurants, convenience stores, motorbike rentals, and dispesaries within walking distance.

This was our 2nd stay at Crystal Bay Beach Resort, and boy it didn’t disappoint. From the Staff in the restaurant, to the girls who looked after our room, the ladies in the office/reception and indeed even the maintenance people, nothing was too much trouble for any of them. The food in the restaurant was first class, and everything was so fresh. You could not ask for a better base to see the beautiful island, and in fact you don’t have to move from your balcony to access your own little piece of heaven. This truly is a great place to visit, and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Thank you very much foe everything, and we hope to return soon.

The hotel is in the most amazingly beautiful location, we had a Seaview balcony room and a beachfront deluxe room between our group and it was the best of both worlds. The rooms themselves were lovely and clean, although the bathrooms are a little dated the beds were amazing and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful, the restaurant kitchen still has limited hours but every thing we ate there was lovely. The real star is, of course, the beach. Sadly we has rough seas for most of our stay but did manage a couple of dips in the sea and it was wonderful. The beach can get busy os it was nice to have the hotel to retreat to.

We stayed at Crystal Bay Beach resort for 3 nights during the high season. We have been accomodated in a beach view room which was the strongest point of this stay. Room itself seemed to be worn out and needs moderinisation (the walls were chopped off, furnitures very old and mismatched). Also, the experience could have been improved by more care. For example -The curtains were moldy and dirty. There was no hot water in the shower and the system in which shower operated was probably 20 years old. On positive note- the bed was comfy and lining clean. The staff was also friendly. We've paid around $90 per night which was far too expensive for what you get. We would not stay there again.

We had a very relaxing time here. We got a room with sea-view and it was amazing. Few steps from your door and you are at the beach. The beach can get crowded during the day as it’s not necessarily private but very tranquil in the morning or evenings. Amazing sunrise from the beach. Breakfast could be better. There are shops and restaurants down the road but to get to the busier areas like Chaweng, I would recommend renting a scooter. The reception can help you with that.

They are thieves. At the time of paying, they claim a 5% fee on the credit card. It's not indicated… anywhere !!! Except on the bill when they charge you. The amount of the fee is a little bit on a case-by-case basis. No need to argue or complain, they started shout at me and told me to go away very aggressively. Des voleurs ! Incroyablement agressifs lorsque je me suis plaint qu’il n’était pas normal qu’ils prennent 5% de frais sur la carte de crédit sans que ce soit indiqué où que ce soit! Réponse : dégagez, vous n’aviez qu’à demander en arrivant.

I am very sorry for the miscommunication. We charge 3% on credit cards (not 5%) and this is common practice in Thailand as the bank charges are very high. We are happy to accept cash also and there are ATMs close by. I am very sorry this spoilt your stay with us.
