We stayed at Crystals last December and loved everyone there, from the guests to the hosts. Monica and Martin were very friendly and great with everyone. Jessica was extremely nice and sweet. She helped us map out our tour experience. She had loads of info and knowledge. We can't say enough how much fun we had from people-interaction at Crystals. Fortunate for us, they had a dinner event one of the nights. We mingled with the other guests, which was very fun and laid back. We enjoyed it. The nightly manager special was also great. Monica arranged a band one night, and then Martin showed off his music-skill another. The daily breakfast was delicious, which consisted of eggs (different style each day), coconut pancakes, bread, and fruit. We made your own coffee, which they provided coffee and milk in the fridge. Lastly, the view was fantastic! Many other big resorts around the area get the same view for much higher price.
The one drawback from this own wonderful experience is the lodging, which was a little outdated and in need for some maintenance. The bed wasn’t very comfortable, was pretty hard and had some odd smell. A few things were a bit worn too, such as beddings and towels. We had water pressure issue on a couple occasion. It had beautifully decoration and had lot of unique characters that one won't find in the other big name cookie-cutter hotel. They also had someone come daily to clean the pool and tidy up the place.
Nevertheless, we really enjoyed our time at Crystals. We highly recommend other to stay here at least a part of their St Lucia visit.
