After getting back from our first trip to St Lucia, we immediately booked a return vacation back to the beautiful island. We had such an amazing time at Crystals during our first visit that we decided to spend our vacation there again. Crystals' staff met us at the airport and transported us up to Crystals. Upon arriving to Crystals, Monica and Martin greeted us into a fun and loving atmosphere. We chose to stay in the Papaya Cottage for this trip and it was beyond expectation. The view of the Pitons from the deck was breathtaking. The cottage was beautiful inside and out. It was set up with an airy open layout that gave a feeling of being outside. The outdoor shower was amazing and the bathroom was stocked with clean towels and toiletries. At night, Monica and Martin entertain the guests at their Tree Top Bar. Monica always had fresh bakes or fishcakes prepared to accompany the drinks severed by Martin (try his rum punch). Martin is also a well inclined musician and treated us to songs on his guitar or keyboard as he sang along. The energy and atmosphere was truly amazing. It was a great way to unwind from the exciting adventures that were done during the day and to share in laughs with Monica, Martin, and the other guests. Sadly, our vacation had to end. We arrived at the airport to depart on our return flight; however, we ended up being bumped from our flight. The next flight would not depart for two days. At a time of stress and panic, Monica and Martin were there to save the day--picking us back up from the airport and returning us back to Crystals. A few more days in paradise can't be bad. Back at Crystals, we had the nightly drinks with Monica, Martin, and the other guests. Additionally, Monica prepared a five-course meal that would rival any five star restaurant. Monica, Martin, and the whole Crystals' staff not only made the stay fun and exciting, but they also made us feel like family! We cannot thank them enough for all that they did and we will be returning soon!
