Beautiful Beach Resort
A lovely resort on an incredible beach. The bungalows are very comfortable and look out at the beach. Food and drink in the restaurant were good. Nice breakfast buffet. Friendly, helpful staff.If I were to return, I thinkl I would still choose the bungalows, but since they don't have AC, it was hot at first at night.

My stay at crystal resort was amazing. The beach was literally 30 steps from my room and the whole scenery was breathtaking.

i wouldn't go rushing back but was OK-ish
Arrived late at night and was helped to my room by the Massai guys (very nice and polite), in the morning woke up to a stunning view from my Eco Lodge straight onto the beach, beautiful to wake up to every day. I opted for Bed and Breakfast and I'm glad i wasn't forced to eat anything more than that, the lunch and dinner menu is poor. Thai food that tastes straight out of a jar, one night took 45 minutes to serve me grilled fish which was raw in the middle. During my last few days i over heard a manager going through the order for the kitchen and the words "jars of black bean sauce" hit home the standards of the kitchen. So decided to spend my evenings relaxing with reasonably priced drinks and food further down the beach at oceans bar, staff at this bar amazing knew my name, welcomed me when i arrived, even offered to walk me back to the hotel when it got dark - great service there. At the Cristal not one member of staff referred to me by name or at least miss/madam. As a solo traveller was shocked when no one informed us that a couple from the hotel got mugged on the beach. Do not book excursions through the hotel - try others on the beach. I stupidly paid $185 for the Blue Safari excursion - only to find that other people from different hotels on the same trip paid $100 - this hotel rips you off on these things.
