Having travelled a fair bit around the globe, I was thrilled to discover Crystals as the perfect location for our wedding. It had everything we were looking for: a beautiful location, exquisitely decorated rooms and a fantastic host and staff that you do not expect to always find. We spent 6 nights in the Calabash cottage and loved every moment of it (it's hard to complain about mangos falling on the roof from our own mango tree that pierced the cottage deck). The hosts, Monica and Martin went beyond the norm in helping organize our wedding, including drives to Castries, decorating the patio and table and preparing dinner. The local band who played in the tree top bar one evening was great.
There is plenty to see and do around Soufriere; we enjoyed snorkelling on an almost private beach (the second beach at Anse Chastenet), hiking through the rain forest to a waterfall, organized by Crystals and evening dinners at surronding restaurants.
Overall, it was an unforgetable travel experience. The pictures only tell part of the story- this is not a Hilton, which is why we liked it.....and it's better in real life !
