The vegan traveller...
I am not one to find faults but this is my experience...parque crystabel is in a great location, in fact hard to better, bungalows are fine, spacious (for 2 - not sure if anyone's sleeping in the lounge you would find it so - beds are quite hard & a little uncomfortable), clean, kitchen fairly well equipped & bathroom small but fine. In my opinion, the all inclusive food is pretty much the same every meal (themed nights for hot food) but bland, just warm & tasteless. The desserts never seemed to change much & tin peaches, pineapple, mixed fruit, jelly & ice cream & cakes got boring for every meal although a couple of nights they done a special dessert at front of restaurant. Now I am a vegan so I don't expect to find much & I am sure if I asked they might well have accommodated a vegan, they had soya milk (vegetarians, ham/fish & meat in most salads & food) but I don't like to be difficult, my friend who eats anything got fed up with the food after 4 days saying it's the same difference just under a different theme. We ate out a few times just to get a tasteful meal. The restaurant is big & spacious, however most meal times we had to either wait for a table or sit outside in the pool bar yet A LOT of the tables were empty but were reserved!! The staff are great, friendly & cheerful. Wifi is very good but only in reception & pool bar but can't fault it. Drinks are plentiful & the bar staff are such fun (kettle in kitchen if you are like me, a tea pot). Now anyone going please, if you wish to sit on your patio rather than the pool side a LOT of the bungalows DO NOT get sun at all & I heard several people complaining & asking to move. We had one & I did ask at reception when we arrived at bungalow 2 (bungalow, number 19 opposite us - check site map on line for where bungalows face - faces sun most of the day) seeing that it was constantly in the shade, only to be told by a very unfriendly man (the only one in the entire complex) in reception... Well go sit by the pool then as we are full. I asked our rep Lauren, if possible to change. She tried but after being given 3 different moving dates & packing, only to be told...tomorrow, we gave up as it was only a few days from our return & the weather was dull anyhow. Might be worth asking when you book!
It's extremely clean & even the sun loungers by the pool are jet washed every day. P.C. is a 3 star but for cleanliness I would give it 4 star.
Do not be put off I am just pointing out my experience not complaining. I enjoyed the stay at P.C. & there's a lot more for's than against. It's fantastic for families with young kids, it's safe for them as no way out unless you go through reception or a locked door - room key to get out of side entrance. Plenty to do & at meal times they have a little low serving section for the very young which I thought was lovely for the kids to help themselves. The child's pool is very shallow & safe for tots along with inflatable toys. Entertainment for kids seemed good but we went out every evening as for us the evening entertainment was not very good in the P.C. for adults & there's an abundance a stone throw from the door with live good music & dancing if you wish.
