From the very friendly security staff member at the gate, the reception staff members and the housekeeping staff, the resort ensures that you feel welcomed and wanted. We had rainy weather the week end but still it was still a holiday in this beautiful resort. Well kept and well maintained units and facilities makes this resort a pleasure to visit.

If it's peace and quiet you are looking for this is the perfect place. I'm not the biggest outdoorsy type of person but I really enjoyed it. They have heated pools, indoor and outdoor including a spa as well. Reception is friendly and helpful and try their best to assist as much as possible. It is very scenic and it... More

Of the things to do is the game drive with the well informed game ranger as well as a massage from the spa. The 3... More

We stayed in the club suites for three nights. It was absolutely beautiful. It has a small kitchen with a stove and fridge which is perfect for self catering. The only thing we could not find were cereal bowls? The bathroom has a shower and a bath. We found the bed to be very comfortable. We loved the huge deck... More

I took my family to this resort in 2014. We had a constant problem with the primates there. The monkeys and baboons are terrible. You can not leave your windows or doors open for a second with out them coming in to your chalet and stealing stuff. The baboons grabbed a packet of potatoes right out of my hand while... More

A group of us visited Crystal Springs in November. The weather was not too great, but we had a good time. We stayed in units number 22 and 24 and had a great view when standing on the patio. The baboons were a regular feature and we even spotted some buck. The fireplace was a nice touch because the weather... More

Lots to do for kiddies, we took our 5 year old grandson with us just for the weekend(mom & dad collected him on Sunday), he had a blast.

I love the place Crystal Springs. Peaceful, quite, friendly staff members. The restuarant's food is excellent. Facilities clean and well maintained.Did a little bit of 4x4 driving. Roads well laid out and maintained even for the flatty passenger cars. Will go back for our 3 rd visit any time. Not much to see around CS as Pilgrims are deteriorating rapidly... More

I tried to book at this place which looked good online. The instant I confirmed that they could proceed with my reservation, they gave me 3.5 HOURS OR LESS (no this is not a mistake!) in which to make payment in order to secure the reservation, which is for 7 months time!. Is that how to treat a busy person?... More
