Although i did not stay here overnight and cannot speak for the rooms, i fully enjoyed a day out here. The moment you enter the long windy golf course lined road you feel the stress fall away.This is an excellent mini break.Valets make you feel welcome as you arrive. There is no stuffiness here that you find at most clubs - weather you arrive in a beat up old Toyota or fancy new Porsche the warm welcome all around is the same. The lodge itself is huge and the colors are all gold and honey and very warm. The cleanliness was supreme all throughout the hotel as well as gardens, pools, and restaurants.
Everyone is friendly and honestly care about how you are doing.
the atrium and indoor pool area is beautiful , restful and enjoyable for adults and kids alike.
We had lunch at the Crystal tavern which is decorated beautifully. Huge fireplaces, stone work and massive leather chairs to sink into while you take in the expansive mountain view from glass windows. Wow ! what a place to eat in. Service is fast and friendly and oh my , the food is for lack of a better word - amazing! Fresh ingredients from local farms are cooked to perfection. I had a roasted beet, goat cheese, avacado and roasted pepper sandwich on a housemade croissant. I really have not tasted a croissant like that in a long time it was so authentically French.My husband had lamb kebobs with a mint couscous which was spot on in flavors.lunch prices are very reasonable - a sandwich and entree without drinks cost only $28 with tax most things on the menu were less than $20.the atmosphere is what is best. However i would have enjoyed some music in common areas as well as restaurant.
The Golf courses are beautifully maintained as well as the gardens and seating areas. Other restaurants looked lovely , but were not open for lunch on the day i went( friday) i would have liked to eat at chefs garden or Bistro. Just being at Crytsal springs resort for a couple of hours was therapy for the soul. I highly recommend a visit here in any season.
