About
Description
The 4 star Krystal Beach Hotel is situated on the waterfront of the paradisiacal Harbour Island peninsula, nestled along the Western Cape shores of Gordon's Bay. The Krystal is a gem, exuding a quiet More sophistication without any trace of snobbishness, in harmony with tranquil décor conducive to relaxation, and all our rooms have truly spectacular views. We really do offer unrivalled value for money, and our staff love to please, not merely because it is our job to do so, but because it is our calling. Cape Town International Airport is only 40 km and 35 minutes’ drive from the Krystal Beach. We are only 1.5 km from Gordon's Bay Village and the walk there is usually a highlight for our guests. Bikini Beach (Blue Flag) is only 2.7 km from the Krystal Hotel. The Strand, with its magnificent beaches (Blue Flag) is virtually on our doorstep, Somerset West about 5 minutes, Stellenbosch about 15 Minutes, Hermanus about 45 minutes, and Cape Town about 40 minutes. The Krystal Beach is at the start of both the Wine & Whale Routes. The safety of our guests is of paramount important to us, and our security team remains ever vigilant, highly motivated, and absolutely professional. Our numerous internal and external CCTV surveillance cameras further monitor people traffic 24/7 for absolutely peace of mind. Less
