My husband and I stayed at Crystals for 4 nights at the beginning of March....and we loved, loved, loved our stay there! If you read all of the reviews, they really sum up what is to love about Crystals. We stayed in the Mango......and loved the decor, the privacy, the view from the upstairs balcony where we enjoyed our homecooked yummy breakfast every morning, gazed at the stars at night, and watched the sunset over the pitons and the island mountains. We felt at home.....and were comfortable. The bed was comfortable, the ambiance was peaceful and romantic...and the plunge pool was a nice afternoon delight with a champagne in hand.
Besides having excellent accomodations, we really enjoyed our time spent with Jessica, Monica, Martin and a few of their friends (I loved my time chatting and dancing with Monica and Christine after happy hour and dinner). We jammed out while Martin played the guitar. We laughed and danced and dined on an amazing dinner created by Monica. And Jessica was just the sweetest soul......... always willing to help us with a smile! They are all great people to be around... and you can sense they really love entertaining their guests, love their life, their island and each other. All in all, it was a wonderful experience for us..........and we hope to visit there, again, one day soon! XO~ Kristen and Jeff
PS: Forget the all inclusives! Forget the over-priced hotels and resorts. Book at CRYSTALS!!! We are glad we did! And do try Boucan for a romantic culinary experience and delicious dinner, and a sunset drink at Ladera. We highly recommend both of these places while on St Lucia.
