I have stayed her 3 times over the last few months. Hotel is pretty basic - only place I have seen a nylon bedspread in years.... However, it's clean and secure. Has good internet and a small bar. Is run by the owner, Sam, who is always on hand if there are any issues. Food is basic but substantial, good... More

Recently spent 2 weeks at this hotel and found the staff and the owner, Sam Gibson to be above par. The food was great and the rooms were comfortable. The laundry service is excellent and a really nice touch. Would definitely return.

It's a horrible African standard hotel with absolute NO service and NO quality! Nevertheless they charge you 150 USD for a room that is maybe worth 30 USD. They have a swimming pool but the water you have to supply yourself, the garden looks like a construction site. The bathroom stinks like a sewer and you receive exactly one small... More

I traveled to this location with a group of 15 people from the USA. Sam Gibson and the hotel staff was absolutely wonderful and a breath of fresh air. It felt like I was home with my own family. I would recommend that you stay at this hotel and enjoy the wonderful Liberian Hospitatlity.

Staying at the Krystal Oceanview was a great experience! The staff was professional and eager to please. The heart of those who served us was next to being home with family. Sam and his wife are number one in my book. I enjoyed every minute and cannot wait to go back. There is only one place to stay when in... More

The hotel has great views over the sea from the rooms and the breakfast area. This compensates for a lot! I found the bar convivial and was served quickly and efficiently (both food and drinks). The public areas of the hotel are meanwhile run down and not cared for (water, mildew, old mattresses, even discarded trash), and the hotel doesn't... More

Well probably not LAST, but for the price, it is bad value and certainly not pleasant. I changed rooms after five monutes because the first one had very stinky aircon (which you don't notice till it runs for a bit). The safe was locked and no one could open it till Monday they said on Saturday. They never did open... More
