My husband and I just returned from a week's visit at Crystals, and what an unforgettable experience it was! Jessica, Monica & Martin went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. Truly sweet, sweet people! We stayed at Papaya & had the opportunity to visit a couple of the other cottages. All are exotic, unique & beautiful. The deck & outdoor shower made Papaya the perfect choice for us. With the kitchen set-up, we were able to make a couple of our suppers & pack up picnic lunches for our day trips. We also participated in a couple of dinners hosted by Monica & Martin. Simply delicious--I really recommend doing this! Also, the breakfast each day was delicious & fortifying for our island exploration.
One of the truly memorable Crystal experiences was the evening social time. We had the opportunity to visit with travelers from Holland, France, England, Germany & fellow Minnesotans (escaping our nasty Minnesota winter!). This was such a nice touch that we haven't experienced on our other Caribbean travels. Watch out, tho, Martin's rum punch carries quite a punch!! Loved it!
We rented our car with Andrew Chitolie through the Crystals recommendation, and that went off without a hitch. Also the price was very reasonable and included pick-up & drop-off at the airport, trips which would have cost $140 on its own.
Having explored other areas of St. Lucia, we were very happy that we settled in the Soufriere area & absolutely thrilled that we chose the Crystals. It was a vacation well-earned for us & everyone at Crystals made it absolutely wonderful. A heartfelt hank you to Jessica, Monica, Martin & staff!
