“Wonderful, clean and lovely cabanas”
Reviewed 11 December 2010

El crystal is really lovely, the cabanas are very clean, some have kitchenettes others don't. I had a wonderful stay and the price was very fair. The owners leave you to your own devices, but if you ask for something that are very happy to help. The owners don't speak English but are very patient with beginners spanish.

Reviewed 25 October 2010

We stayed here for 3 nights only a few days ago and loved it. There were 4 of us, me, my girlfriend and 2 friends so we had room number 8 which has a bathroom and kitchen/diner downstairs and 4 bunk beds upstairs. The other rooms looked like they were cabanas with 2 or 4 beds in and a small room in the eaves of the roof but we didn't go into them so can't comment I'm afraid!

We hadn't booked anything before we arrived at Puerto Piramides and we'd looked at 3 other places by the time we reached El Cristal. The cheapest hostel we found was 60 Pesos per person for single sex dorms but we wanted a room together so we kept looking. Fortunately for us we found this place which was great. Having the kitchen meant we could cook our own food and relax whilst having a few beers/wines and watch the television on our own. Food is quite expensive in the restaurants so cooking at home helped us save money. I'd suggest stocking up on food in Puerto Madryn before driving to Piramedes as there isn't much choice in Piramedes.

The place was very clean, the shower really powerful and the kitchen had a saucepan and frying pan with cutlery for 4 people. The stove had 2 gas rings which was sufficient to cook for 4 people. The bedroom had views of the sea and we could easily see Southern Right whales in sea.

Staying here (we hired a car from Puerto Madryn) enabled us to get up early and get to see the main points of the peninsular before the bus tours got there! We saw orcas, Southern Right whales, sealions, elephant seals, penguins, armadillos, a grey fox and more!

At El Cristal we paid 320 Pesos for 4 people (80 each) and we had our own bathroom and kitchen/diner with a tv too... Fantastic value. The kitchen is small but there is enough room to cook while 3 people watch tv.

We loved this place and the dog that lived next door was really friendly too!
