Pros: Staff is super friendly. Nice patios in most suites. Secluded. Good cable TV.
Cons: Rooms are shabby and need upgrading. Water pressure is unreliable during the day. No beach only a rocky shoreline. All restaurants and bars are located in Sabang or Puerto Galera necessitating the use of wheeled transportation therefore guests are dependent on either rented scooters or the "tricycle mafia" that controls the local transportation. You could walk but each town is about 1/2 hour on foot and there are no shoulders on the roads. Breakfast at the hotel is below average. Large of number mosquitoes in the rooms so it would probably be recommended that you bring a net if you don't want to wake up every morning with bits all over your legs.
Not sure why anyone would want to stay more than one day at the Blue Crystal. We made a mistake choosing it as we should have stayed in Sabang for about the same money. Everything is there anyways and you wouldn't need wheeled transport to go home in the evening.
Speaking about Sabang, if you are not into heavy drinking (drinks are very cheap and it is evident by the number of drunk foreigners warming bar stools), scuba diving or paying for the company of local girls, you are probably in the wrong place.
