“Langebaan Marathon”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

I guess it was "off-season", hence no other hotel guest other than us. Took the honeymoon suite which was really nice with great view across the bay. Great bed to sleep in. The price was really low for what you got (incl breakfast).

Can really recommend this Hotel! Enjoy!

We spent our first anniversary weekend at Crystal Lagoon Lodge. From the moment we arrived we were treated so well. Marelise and Martha were excellent hosts. They made us feel special, well taken care of and went out of their way for us. The breakfast was so delicious I even asked Martha for her meatball recipe and she glady shared her secret. The decor was lovely, lots of attention to detail, rooms immaculate, the views were great and the beach was clean and sandy. We slept like babies to the gentle sound of the ocean and left Langebaan feeling very well rested. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

Room Tip: Any sea facing room would be best. loved room 6

We really enjoyed our stay at the Lodge. Its location on the beach, the easy access to the nearby restaurants, the stylish decor, as well as the personal touch, such as the lit candles along the hallway, were all major factors. The breakfast was of good quality and well presented, and the staff was friendly and professional, from the warm welcome to the final farewell.

Once again a memorable stay at this beautifull guest house. The location is excellent and the service when required was outstanding. We loved the view and the room layout.


Thanks for a wonderful stay and we will definitely visit again.

Located in gated private development - Calypso Beach- about 4 miles north of Langebaan. Need to produce 'evidence' of booking for the guard at the entrance gate for first time arrival. Afterwards, the guesthouse provided an i/d to show at the gate for the duration of the stay. The newly built five storey guesthouse is literally on the dune bordering the beach and appeared very stylish with lots of 'artistic' touches.. Reception and breakfast room/restaurant, with adjacent verandah, are upstairs on the first floor. Limited car-parking (4 cars maximum) is available on the ground floor. Guestrooms and apartments are on the 3 floors above Reception. There is no lift - only a fancy spiral staircase - which makes moving luggage in and out rather fraught. Our room, #8, (pre-booked through Expedia) was on the landward side, oddly shaped and rather small with little room to move around the king-size bed and only space for one suitcase to be opened at a time. Facilities included: wall mounted TV, minibar, in-room safe, tea/coffee makings, radiator, and one chair. A very stylish bathroom had wc, washbasin and wet-room/shower. Soaps and toiletries were provided. There were no instructions for the TV or safe. One window in the corner of the bedroom was able to be opened, but promptly shut itself again on the very strong breeze. Thus the room quickly became stuffy with no adequate ventilation. Breakfast choice was 2 juices, yoghurt & cereal mixture, hot buffet, toast, with tea/coffee and eggs to order. After declaring diet problems with 'dairy intolerence' at check-in, a fruit bowl was available on the second morning. Service was very very slow, although polite. On the second morning, we were effectively ignored for twenty minutes whilst the proprietors were making a promotional video in the breakfast room. Overall, this place has potential - especially for beach dwellers - but was lacking in other areas. It was definitely neither well-organised nor convenient for luggage handling. Consequently, we were 'disappointed'.

We did enjoy our 3 day stay in Crystal Lagoon Lodge. Perfectly located at the beach with beautiful sunsets and bird views hunting for fish. Staff is very helpful and we made nice walks along the beach.
