I do not ever write in reviews and my relationship with TripAdvisor is basically looking for somewhere to eat /stay and that's petty much it . This was so taken aback and impacted my family and I that I just had to .
Crystals ( the name speak for its self) is a gem right in-the center of heaven, from the bumpy road to the rustic tree top bar held up by mango trees. My two teenagers and my Husband stayed 3 nights inthe Papaya and 4 nights inthe Silver Palm in March. The rooms were beyond words . It was large and very spacious , luxurious furniture , AMAZING VIEWS, the architecture is amazing like something you would see in a fairy-tale. My favorite was probably the outside garden shower . How skilled is the owners Monica & Martin who builds and designs all out of handmade tools and natural rocks and other commodities of nature, The bed was so soft , and the natural sound of the rain-forest came in sync with the atmosphere . What amazing nights.
My husband and I were in awe of the breath taking natural beauty not only of the pitons but the sea view and the lush greenery , the kids of course were too stunned by our private pool . The one in the Silver Palm definitely had an affect on them 35 ft pool. We had to drag them out upon departure.
Breakfast at Crystals is amazing , yummy coconut pancakes , eggs, fruit plate with something called sour- swop ( native fruit). , some local made biscuits (most delicious thing ever) and local bread ............Delicious! This was served to us-at anytime of our request
We did have a problem with out water pressure once however this was fixed in a few minutes . Jessica pointed out that sometimes leaves get into the system .
We really loved that crystals had 2 dog on property a little black poodle named storm and a playful German Shepherd called Sheba. It made us feel like we were back at home except in a more relaxed , adventurous state of mind
Crystals offers complimentary cocktail nights, you sit inthe tree top bar and socialize with other guest and Monica and Martin , who has such fascinating stories to tell . The kids loved the fresh squeezed juices and we absolutely LOVED the rum punches, which has a bit of a kick warning .... it can make you see double Sheba's.
Definitely rent a jeep ! Taxi's could be expensive and some of the best attractions require vehicle access. If you are not a driver I guess Jessica can set up a unlimited taxi for you like she did for the other couple from Switzerland.
Thank you Martin , Monica , Jessica and all the staff of Crystals for an amazing vacation!
We will be back next year ...!
Love Ellen , Marcus , Avery and Adelyn xoxoxoxo
