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.

I was lucky enough to get a great deal over the Easter Holidays. Check-in was quick and easy. The room was very spacious. The food was great!! I just don't get why we have to pay for room service but hey. Overall I had a great stay. The only flaws are that I spotted roaches in the bathroom and the tea and coffee area in my room, a few times. The sliding doors in my room did not close fully, so it made an annoying noise when the wind was blowing. The bed was comfy and the views made it worth it, so I would probably recommend it. It's in a beautiful area and close to Strand and the GB hiking trail.

We stayed in the King suite, what a lovely relaxing and very comfortable suite and that bathroom, wow, that is fit for a queen. The staff were friendly and helpful. The whole hotel is cleaning and inviting.

The room was very spacious and modern. We would have like to have had bottled water in the room and some chairs for the outside patio. The restroom in the restaurant was filthy, but the service was and food was good the evening. We will definitely be back

This is by far the best stay I had whilst visiting Cape Town. The view is fabulous, staff is so friendly and the food is to die for. I would recommend Krystal Beach to anyone considering staying here.
