Group of 4 friends. 2 of us stayed in a SeaView bungalow and 2 in a garden view bungalow. I was slightly dissapointed with the Sea View from the bungalow. We hadn't paid a lot extra, but it was more of a glimpse of sea. I did ask twice to make sure it was sea view. I was assured it... More

The setting for this hotel is sublime. Best beach on Samui by some way. Sit at a table overlooking white sand and blue ocean and order a beer. Not cheap but the view alone us worth it. Great swimming pool. Clean rooms. Good value place. But for me its the beach that's 5*

Crystal bay yacht club is beautifully located among a lush tropical back drop and beautiful picturesque beach. The rooms are great and kept very clean and the location (for us) is ideal, far enough away from the hustle and bustle to have a peaceful rest but only a few minutes walk to local restaurants on the road and if a...

I loved this wee resort, it is a 3.5 star facility with 4 star staff. Helpful in every way. There is a good breakfast to be had every day with a wide range of choices. The lunch menu is varied and tasty, with dinner acceptable. No T-bone steak available on Steak night was a bit funny. Live Music was 2-3... More

Fantastic place just away from the center of Lamai, the food is a bit expensiver than local restaurant but it was okay! Just 1 minute away you have the bamboo restaurant which is delicious, we recommand this hotel, however the bathroom was only partly been updated.

Great hotel in a secluded bay in silver beach. Peaceful atmosphere. Manicured gardens. Good buffet breakfast. ( you do not have to be a guest and pay for daily use of facilities). Great massage by the pool and beach. Magnificent views. Good background music.

Crystal Bay is one of the most beautiful beaches on an island full of beautiful beaches. It felt like paradise found. The sand is like soft sugar though there are large rocks and it's pretty easy to navigate your way out. The water is as warm as a bath, shallow for a long way out, crystal clear and you can... More

The pool, the restaurant and the beach is what make this hotel. One of the best places we've eaten at local prices. Exceptional views and white sandy beach. Very inviting pool which our kids loved and a prime location between Lamai and Chewang.
