Second time visiting Crystal springs - great quality accommodation, super clean. Hiking trails and adventurous walks enjoyed by my family. If you love the mountainous outdoors - visit this resort. Wildlife roams the surrounds, waterbuck, zebras, and wildebeest to name a few.

The beautiful scenery and inviting outdoor activities are being let down by outstanding inhospitable manager (Ronel)that supposedly welcomes you at the front desk in not in the least bit accomodating and not to mention somewhat racist undertone of the assistant manager Ronel

Hi Petrool123. We passed on your feedback to the Resort Management, who informed us that unfortunately the concern stemmed from a case of over occupancy. For various good reasons, including the safety of guests and complying with legislation, Crystal Springs has a strict no overcrowding policy and this means the Resort does not allow more than the maximum occupancy per any given unit, as stipulated. Management did offer to accommodate you with an additional unit, which you accepted at the time. Nevertheless, we apologise for any inconvenience caused. Kind Regards – The Crystal Springs Team.

Dear sir, my first suggestion is that you contact the resort direct for more information. I can however state that OR Tambo (Johannesburg) airport is the nearest Airport. The road is safe and good. (There are several routes you can take) In the immediate surroundings of the resort there are many things to do. The cable car to the top of the mountain, Several top class restaurants. A small zoo at the dam, "booze" cruises' etc etc.

"All room are in in good postions. Mainly the main bedrooms are facing the beter view."
"The chalets on the edge of the gorge are the best for great views especially in the late afternoons."
"I guess any room will do, but the chalets overlooking the mountains are really nice."
"Suites 100-133 are overlooking the gorge"
"Ask to be put in one of the chalets that is really high up, not a club suite room."
