Service, staff, nice big rooms/showers, toiletries, meals, price, location
everyone is friendly and hospitalized
All staff are very friendly. Overall clean hotel. Good view of coconut trees and sea. Room well cleaned daily. Breakfast and dinner buffet reasonable. They allowed me to keep my luggage in reception after 12pm checkout whilst I roamed the Island until my 7.30pm speedboat.
No cupboard in the room. No headboard as shown in the pics. Shampoo and conditioner provided but no soap. No one came to receive us at the ferry point and had to drag three suitcases in the sand to the hotel in the heat. I had emailed of my arrival in advance. Ensure they acknowledge your arrival time. Luckily hotel close to ferry point. No lift in the hotel but staff bring the luggage up and down for you.
Staff were friendly. Specially sami and two guys from srilanka who made my snorkeling day amazing one.
Room has very less to expect. Ac doesnt work. Wifi was worse of everything.
When we arrived after a long travel day we got to check in. The check in was not so good the information about the hotel was not very quickly en not explained clearly. she immediately talked about the trips that were offered and immediately asked if we wanted to book, we didn't really appreciate that, everything takes a lot of effort for her we had the feeling. But we could immediately put on what was super nice. Overall the room is fine but very small and the view is bad for the standard room. If I were to stay here I recommend booking the ocean view. the rooms are much larger and do not overlook a few metal plates in the back. the buffet in the evening was very nice, much choice and different every day. The breakfast is not what we are use to in Europe so we skipped it a lot. Overall the manager did his very best arranging our transfer to another hotel when we checked out and we appreciated it! The staff was really nice and helpful overall our stay was nice and especially for the price we paid for halfboard around $600. Thankyou Cristal sands!
Check in, breakfast, standard room (view) and the lady at the reception. Overall it was very nice but i think for the possibilities that the hotel has that they can do even better than this.
