The property looks exactly like the pictures. No surprises. The room was in great condition and clean. The view was amazing from our room and from the pool area. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Bradley checked us in and out promptly he was very helpful with helping us book day trips and activities and finding places to eat. Housekeeping cleaned tidied the room daily. I would recommend and book again in the future

Great stay, beautiful apartments
Great stay at The Crystal Apartments. The room was huge and immaculately clean. It is suitable for those that want to self cater. The facilities were very good and had no issues, check in was easy and quick. The location is very safe and picturesque, however we would have liked to have been slightly closer to Camps Bay, but not an issue if you use Uber. We would return again.

Poor 2,0
Disappointing service from start to finish
This unfortunate and disappointing experience comes from what could be a fantastic location for a luxury apartment. We had flown from the UK with a 1year old baby. In summary the following aspects were completely substandard: 1) geezer was broken and therefore no hot water for two days 2) when asked how to restore hot water we were told incorrect information (to do with a circuit switch) and no assistance 3) we were told to wash our baby in our bucket with hot water from a kettle 4) we were then transferred to another apartment with bedding that had another person’s blood on them 5) we were charged to twice for the room 6) I am still waiting for a refund on my card 7) I am unable to contact anyone at all to chase this refund despite trying all contact numbers. Think carefully before staying here (unless you like poor service, cold water, blood on your sheets and no communication).

Good 6,0
Do not stay here!!! This property was dirty with tons of hair all over the bathroom floor. The hotel promised light cleaning through out our stay but the maid never came once during our stay. Because the Hotel didnt have the cleaning service that was promised, we had to request clean towel everyday. The washing machine had a horrible mold smell coming from it too so we couldn't ever us it and had to travel with dirty cloths. There are sooo many other options to stay at in Camps Bay for the price so I would suggest you keep looking.

Great for a short stay
These apartments are great for a short stay. It's more like an AirBnB than a hotel. The apartments are well equipped with TV, dishwasher, washing machine/dryer, full kitchen and utensils and are a short walk down to Camps Bay beach (10-15 mins downhill). Taxi home is about £3 using Uber. Nice bathrooms and clean/modern apartment overall. Secure underground parking provided. My only complaint is that the soundproofing is VERY poor. You can hear every chair move, cupboard opening in the adjoining apartments and I'm not a light sleeper. For this reason I wouldn't stay too long.
