Just got back from our stay in St Lucia and Crystals. We were there for a week and started in Mango cottage before moving into Papaya for the last 5 nights. Both cottages are completely unique and fabulous. Showering outside is really lovely. The views - amazing. Breakfasts - really lovely. The mosquitoes were everywhere, but then you're in the forest and staying in May meant there was a lot of rain too. There are nets over the nets which we recommend using. Also we purchased some spray and coils which kept them away as much as possible.
Crystals' true charm lies with its hosts. Monica and Martin. Whilst we were there, they made every effort possible to ensure we had a good trip. Happy hour was lots of fun every evening (if you wanted it!). In particular, Monica put us in touch with Andrew who hired us a 4x4 for the week and I couldn't find anything anywhere else that even looked at matching his prices. We thoroughly enjoyed having the independence of a vehicle. Almost essential if you want to get out of the hotel. It really is in the middle of nowhere on the top of a hill! We also wanted to go fishing whilst there. Monica arranged it all and it was superb. Again very well priced. It was great to have such confidence in them both and know that whatever and wherever they recommended was going to be worth it.
