A lovely apartment with two bedrooms with ensuites. a good size sitting room and kitchen. The place had fantastic views of the ocean and was close to the restaurants although we did get a taxi at night as we didn't fancy the walk up hill and didn't know how safe we would have been. The staff were very welcoming staff...

We stayed in a studio. The view of the ocean from the room and pool was obstructed by telephone cables. Two lovely pools. The room was great. The highlight was the well equipped and modern finished kitchen. The deck was great but not enough privacy offered from neighbours. Basement parking is provided for guests. There are elevators to apartments of...

We have just returned from 2 weeks in a 2 bedroom apartment at the Crystal. The apartment was lovely. It is nicely furnished with all the amenities you need. The view over Camps Bay is stunning! The pool area is nice but could do with a few more sunbeds and the water in the pool could have done with being...

My spouse and I stayed at the Crystal for 10 glorious days and found all the amenities to be superb. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment with the most amazing view of the beach and the amazing mountain ranges. The unit and complex is perfectly located. The complex has both a heated and cold pool, providing endless hours of...

We stayed at studio apartement and it was nice spacious and cozy. Very modern. Bed is huge and comfy ( not so soft). View is really nice. Private indoor garage with 24h security guard. Neighborhood is quiet. Restaurants and beach is about 30min walk, bout 5min with car. We really enjoyed staying there.

Stayed in the one bedroom apartment (111) and we were impressed by the size and comfort the apartment provided. Certainly felt at home. The views of table mountain from the rooms were amazing but the views from the balcony of the beach and beyond were breath taking. We had very memorable sunsets from the comfort of our balcony which will...

We stayed for two nights and could have stayed more under different circumstances. We were at the end of a long holiday but they would be fantastic for a longer break with a car. The apartments are very modern, clean and spacious. The setting is wonderful, overlooking Camps Bay in front and with Table Mountain behind. They are ideal for...

Dear AandM_10 Thank you for taking the time to write this review. For couples wanting to explore I would rather suggest to have a vehicle or different tours booked in advance. Although it is only a 10-minute walk to the beach front and Camps Bay Strip it is advisable to rather get a taxi/bus back as the hill can be...

An excellent base as our first stopping off point in South Africa. In a lovely, safe suburb (Camps Bay), the apartments are very well appointed, spacious and offer lovely views across the bay. With a car it is easy to get to Capetown, Signal hill, Table mountain cablecar and Lion head. Camps Bay itself was quiet (in July), with a...

Dear Harold 59 Thank you for your review. Although we have changed wifi service providers we are still in the process of upgrading the signal, unfortunately due to the layout of the block the process is taking longer than anticipated. Kind Regards Chantel Wessels
