We've stayed a couple times at Crystal Springs which is always lovely, very relaxing and quiet. We went on the game drive which was fantastic a bit cold but after asking our guide for blankets he politely obliged and went on to give us a brilliant tour. The venue has a lovely setting. Our room was great however the couch... More

Great place. Self catering chalet has everything you need. Very comfortable with amazing views. Awesome family location as they really cater for the kids. Warm and cold pools to cater for all seasons. Try out the clubhouse with its sauna, steamroom, Jacuzzi's and warm pool for only R30 per day. And Andrew at reception is awesome, so helpful.

I couldn't believe how a "I don't care" attitude these people have. Me and my boyfriend decided that we will go away for a well deserved break from the city. And well as I have been wanting to visit this lodge since I was 10 years old I suggested we should go to Crystal springs - What a terrible mistake.... More

We enjoyed a very pleasant quiet week in a 3 bedroom unit 35 at Crystal Springs. The unit patio faced south west and had sun from late morning. The view from the patio is beautiful especially the sunsets. The unit was spacious with a big dining area, and the kitchen well equipped, including a dish washer and washing machine. The... More

We had an amazing time at Crystal Springs. The studio apartment we stayed in was fantastic, clean and very well decorated. With a tv and couches that were very modern. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The rooms were cleaned daily and the cleaning staff were very good at what they did and very friendly towards us.... More

We stayed in a two bedroom lodge. The views are spectacular. They have very friendly staff , lovely bar area around the pool and a great kiddies entertainment area. The rooms are spacious and extra heating is provided during winter nights which can be cold.

A lovely long weekend in the mountain with good friends, great wine, log fires, relaxing spa treatments and a few friendly visits from the local wild life. This is not my first time at Crystal Springs and it will not be my last! Also great for exploring the great outdoors with the kids :)
