"The perfect place to break away from city life. It's peaceful, and clean, has friendly staff, and lots to do, in and around the Resort, for young and old. Great for family holidays; great food. From me, a 5-star rating! My third time visiting and will highly recommend Crystal Springs. Thank You." - 2022 (Facebook)

"We had an amazing stay at Crystal Springs and the staff was exceptional! The view from the Lodge was amazing; we even caught sight of some zebras and monkeys. I would definitely go back there with my friends and family." - 2022 (TripAdvisor)
