We just spent the weekend here and had an amazing time! It was my husband, our 2 and a half year old son and myself. This is the second time we have been there. It is a lovely lodge situated in the mountains with amazing views!! We stayed in one of the duplex apartments (153). It had beautiful views but...

On arrival we were met with a warm welcome and a sherry or juice option. The check in was seamless and friendly. A very well appointed very fresh chalet awaited us. A home away from home with all the amenities possible! The spectacular views was breathtaking...especially the sunsets. A great place to enjoy peace and quiet in nature. Highly recommended.

The accommodation, amenities and overall experience at this resort is awesome. The units are wellkept, pristine, well-located and perfectly maintained. The perfect destination to get away from city-life. Highly recommended for rest and relaxation.

Comfortable place to stay, not too kids friendly. Not really up to a great standard of a 4 star. Not much activities to do within the crystal springs resort. Small bathrooms. Limited games room for children (table tennis, pool)

Went to the lodge the week before Christmas and stayed in a 6 sleeper. Good value for money, it's clean and spacious.. With amazing views.. No free wifi and signal is poor. You need to pay for wifi at reception. Most facilities are free at the lodge.. 3 swimming pools but carry your own towels because pool towels are charged...

Nice rooms & bathrooms. Lounge a bit old but resort busy with upgrades. Nice facilities. Pools, tennis courts, squash, games room. Lots of potholes on the way to Crystal Springs. Enjoyed the steam room, jacuzzi, sauna. Value for money.

Tons to keep you busy at Crystal Springs and it's surroundings. The Chalets are clean and well kept. They offer a game drive, which is very informative and worth experiencing. Saw zebras and other animals walking past the chalets in the evenings. Definitely enjoyed the stay.
