Positive Reviews

Wonderful mountain and ocean views

The Crystal is right on Camps Bay and many of the rooms provide guests with great views of the ocean. You can also see Table Mountain from the hotel, which is another aspect that past guests have enjoyed. Since the property is self-catered, you might enjoy eating your meals on your balcony while overlooking the ocean.

Great swimming pools

The resort features two swimming pools, both of which offer views of the Atlantic Ocean. These pools are equipped with lounge chairs and many guests have noted that they enjoyed sitting in the sun by the pool and relaxing. One of the pools is heated.

Very secure property

A number of past guests have stated that they always felt safe while staying at this hotel. The underground parking is completely secure and security is on the premises 24 hours per day.

Negative Reviews

Poor Wi-Fi

You might have trouble accessing the Wi-Fi. Past guests have mentioned that you have to pay for internet access, but it often does not work in the rooms. There is free Wi-Fi in the basement, however.

Lack of housekeeping

Multiple guests have commented that housekeeping services are not available on Sundays unless requested and, in some cases, many days pass without the rooms being cleaned.

Trouble with bathrooms

Some guests have noticed that the bathrooms in the apartment units at The Crystal are lacking in some areas. The showers tend to flood the bathroom, leading to a puddle on the floor every time they are used. In addition, guests have said that the bathrooms have a strange smell at times.
