“Seen better days!”
Reviewed 8 December 2013 via mobile

I imagine this place to have once been rather nice however it's now in need of a desperate refurb! The location is very deceiving and is more than a short walk or ride into marrisa. I couldn't knock the chef for his service but he was the only staff member we met. Porter/chef/manager all rolled into one!? With only one staff member and us being the only guests, it didn't feel a secure place to leave valuables in the room without a safe. With some money thrown at the place you could probably make this a nice surfers resort, but with the ac not working, half the lights out, unclean pool and the wifi not working it's certainly not worth £50 a night!

Reviewed 24 February 2013

The hotel has a great location on the beach, huge balconies and rooms with wonderful views of the sea. However it is a bit shabby and has a run down air. No soap in the bathroom which could do with a complete make over and new mirrors to replace the cracked ones. The air con didn't work but the fan was effective and sufficient. The ever present staff were helpful and the food was good. Strange to be asked to pay for our three nights when we arrived. We were the only people staying there which gave it a slightly surreal air. We've stayed in more comfortable places for much less.

Reviewed 18 December 2012

Having reserved a room at this hotel through a hotel booking site, 2 months ago, this hotel have only now notified us that they are unable to accept our booking - just days away from our planned visit.

At such short notice, we are not now able to find a comparable hotel in this location.

What a disappointment.

I normally prefer not to leave negative reviews, but on this occasion I think that its worth highlighting that for us at least, booking here wasn't the right choice.

We spent a week at Crystal Villa at the end of March 2012. The resort is lovely and the website does not do it justices, the beach back’s on to the villa so you could lounge by the pool and still see the beach and hear the waves crashing.

There are only 5 rooms at the villa and it doesn’t sound like there ever really fully booked, we felt very spoilt having the villa to ourselves. The food was delicious and fresh and the staff couldn’t do enough for you.

We went to Sri Lanka for the England test match cricket in Galle, It’s a 45 minute drive from Galle and a drive away from any sightseeing activity. There is no internet or entertainment, Crystal Villa is perfect if you want a peaceful, rustic Holiday.
