Room was good size and clean. Beds are super comfy. Staff at reception very courteous and welcoming. Property has onsite restaurant, small pool, and massage service. Ice availability is limited at this property though a family mini mart is short walk south of property. I did not like that smoking was allowed in the restaurant area. Crystal Bay location is beautiful. We would stay at Crystal Bay Resort again for a budget friendly option in Crystal Bay. Tip: take a chance on the roadside soup and noodle restaurant directly across road from mini market--the lady is a big smile there and good value and flavor.
Stayed at Crystal Bay for 5 nights and had a great stay. Initially, I had reservations re my room – the front, with a balcony, had a beautiful view of the beach and bay, but the back of the room was next to the busy road. Staff at reception were really great and helpful and promised to move me when another room became available. In the end I decided to stay where I was – I found the noise from the road was muted enough with the door closed and did not keep me awake at night. The room was big, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom while needing an upgrade was fine. The shower area was big and easy to access which I liked. Always found the room clean after the staff had been. Would stay there again.
PROS: Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Resort right on the beach with good access for swimming. Really liked this end of Crystal Bay. Lovely to walk up and down the beach early morning for exercise. Adequate breakfast with choice of eggs cooked to order. Mini mart and other eating places (Kawin's Kitchen is a must try) within walking distance of the resort.
CONS: Pillows hard, but this is typical of everywhere in Thailand. Breakfast staff need to smile more. Cooked egg dishes for breakfast were rather bland and more imagination could have been used in preparation and presentation. Pool very small, but guests staying at Crystal Bay Beach resort do have access to a much larger pool at the other end of the beach. Only ate one lunch at the resort – found the menu to be overpriced and the Massaman curry I had lacked flavour.
Easily the best beach in Koh Samui. No pollution or rubbish on the beach with plenty of shade to sit under with big trees meeting the sand. The water is lovely and clear and there are a couple of restaurants that do well priced food and drinks.
We spended here awsome two weeks. Friendly staff, clean room, modest but good breakfast. Beautiful beach right next to the hotel is the best reason to stay here.
The restaurant is excellent! Great view and even better food. The employees were very attentive and quick. Good selection of Thai, burgers, and pizza. Will return!
