Travellers' Choice
The 4 star Krystal Beach Hotel is situated on the waterfront of the paradisiacal Harbour Island peninsula, nestled along the Western Cape shores of Gordon's Bay. The Krystal is a gem, exuding a quiet sophistication without any trace of snobbishness, in harmony with tranquil décor conducive to relaxation, and all our rooms have truly spectacular views. We really do offer unrivalled value for money, and our staff love to please, not merely because it is our job to do so, but because it is our calling. Cape Town International Airport is only 40 km and 35 minutes’ drive from the Krystal Beach. We are only 1.5 km from Gordon's Bay Village and the walk there is usually a highlight for our guests. Bikini Beach (Blue Flag) is only 2.7 km from the Krystal Hotel. The Strand, with its magnificent beaches (Blue Flag) is virtually on our doorstep, Somerset West about 5 minutes, Stellenbosch about 15 Minutes, Hermanus about 45 minutes, and Cape Town about 40 minutes. The Krystal Beach is at the start of both the Wine & Whale Routes. The safety of our guests is of paramount important to us, and our security team remains ever vigilant, highly motivated, and absolutely professional. Our numerous internal and external CCTV surveillance cameras further monitor people traffic 24/7 for absolutely peace of mind.

Nice hotel with comfortable beds, large rooms with nice balconies, good shower and spa tub. Helpful staff and nice breakfast. On the Harbour with beach and restaurants near by and great security. Recommended. We left something valuable in the room and staff were able to find it and return it to us. That means a great deal.

Thank you for rating us highly. We try hard to please because it is not merely our job but our calling. Your review is therefore much appreciated. If you take a stroll down our beautiful boardwalk on the Marina towards the sea, several eateries and pubs are available. So, we have our own excellent Krystal Restaurant and Captain's Table plus our Oh La La Restaurant and Cocktail Bar. Then, next to us, there's a fantastic Italian restaurant called Antonio's Pizza Place. Two other restaurants - Berties Moorings and Ocean Basket - are only 30 and 50 metres further up the boardwalk. Finally, the Gordons Bay Boat Angling Club is on the slipway, making for a diverse group of eateries and pubs within 100 metres of Krystal Beach.

My mom and I had such a lovely time, we even extended our stay by one more day. The ambiance is very relaxed and peaceful, you actually feel like the only guest. The stuff was very friendly, and the food was great!

Not what we expected from a 4 Star. No bottle water. WiFi not given with check in. No biscuits or rusk in room. Breakfast was cold. Lady making eggs, omlette not friendly at all. Didn't even offer to look up and help us so we had the cold scramble eggs. Fruit not ripe.

It was a very short exciting visit which I want to do again soon. The place is amazing I had the most comfortable short stay. The food was so fresh and delicious the view of the sea was the greatest moment. I want to come back with my family the next time so they can experience the Krystal comfort.

We booked and paid for our romantic turn down for our honeymoon. When we arrived at hotel nothing was arranged and when I called reception I was told there was no housekeeping and they could not explain why the room was not set up. This was only done the morning after me and my husband came from breakfast, which defeats the purpose as the night before was supposed to be romantic for us as this was our wedding night. Up until today no manager contacted me to apologized or to offer us something to make up for their mistake. DEEPLY DISAPPOINTED.

Stayed one night in the premium suite, no hairdryer in the room. Called reception and a had a fat argument with the receptionist who insists the hotel is almost full so we cannot get a hairdryer. I ask her to get one from a vacant room, she says no can do. Wife asks if she must walk out looking like a drowned rat (she has long blond hair) receptionist says yes. I then tell her the aircon is not working in the room but the lounge one is. It is a Daiken aircon in both rooms. She tells me it is an air vent. Seriously ? I ask for the GM, he is not working (on Easter Weekend with almost 100% capacity ???). Trevor, awesome guy took the phone from the useless lady at reception and with in 5 minutes Trevor was in our room with a hairdryer. What a superstar he was and an asset to the hotel. All this could have been resolved by little princess at reception if she cared enough to get up and make a plan, like Trevor did. Its a trivial matter but I expected better being in the in the "superior room". Left a sour taste in the mouth. We have stayed in this hotel before and loved it, unfortunately this was my last visit.
