Crystal Paradise Resort
Stayed in a Beach Villa with Pool, 2 nights, very disappointed.”
Booked 2 nights in a Beach Villa with private pool. This was what we thought the best accommodation for us while in Narra, as we went there to buy a property. The photos in the Agoda website look lovely, but very deceiving, the place was built in the 80,s and the photos were accurate possibly at the time of opening. The long story short is it is extremely expensive for what you will get in reality. The property has been sadly neglected, poor to nil maintenance, dirty mouldy villa with paint pealing due to neglect. Hot water to hand basin but not to shower in ensuite, pathetic, honestly check out for yourself before booking, dont make the same mistake as us and book according to the nice photos, they are very misleading. Complimentary breakfast was a joke, only ate there for breakfast as it was included in the package. Disappointing all round i honestly cannot recommend staying at this property to anyone, just book in good accomodation in the city, Puerto Princessa and drive to Narra.
This place is a good place to consider when you want a quite retreat from the usual tourist areas and tours. They have villas with you own small pool overlooking the beach. It is a but far from the main road but you are there to enjoy the quiet anyway. They have a spa and very good therapists too. But do tell them to put down the curtains because of the mosquitoes while having a massage.
if you want to relax from your busy life this place is good for you. relaxing and peaceful. the staff are friendly
Scenery, Locatioin and Room
Nice View, relaxing ambance, good rooms
For The Family”
The resort is truly for families on vacation. They have enough pools and beach front to accommodate a lot of people. Food was good and safe. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our rooms are clean though rather sparse compared to what we are usually used to. Our aircon needed to be serviced because it was very noisy. But over-all it is a well-maintained resort. We did research on the flora of Palawan, and their location, Narra was a good jump-off point.
Tatty and well worn. The place in general is very shabby and worn. The price for a pool villa is out of all context with the property. The villa is 3/10 but I must say the pool was 8/10.but with a price tag of 10,000 php, £145, $200 us, it is crazy. The breakfast was very small and for a hotel saying 2 eggs any style and then not knowing what poached eggs are says it all. The saving grace was that as with all Philippine hotels the staff were great.
Our stay was absolutely amazing. Stuff was very friendly and polite. If you want to spend time privately then this is the place to be. Only 2 things are not good- Internet connection was invalid and no sunbeds on the beach, everything else super. Surely suggest to visit
Nice authentic remote resort.”
Remote - ideal for solitudal escape ”
Only stayed for two nights, enjoyed our stay in very quite and pleasing surroundings. Remote from Puerto Princesa which may be a con for some no nightlife as such.
beautiful place, peaceful people.”
we really enjoyed to stay in this resort. delisious philipino food in the restaurant, wonderful trip to small island. everything great, especially snorkel tour! they prepare a perfect lunch with lovely tableware not like a plastic or paper. try it!
Stayed in a standard room, as a treat after backpacking down from El Nido. As seasoned travellers, we're happy to stay in cheap rooms when backpacking but also are familiar with luxury hotels. Crystal Paradise was a serious disappointment -very glad we only went for a standard room. Expect nothing more than 2* service and facilities. Its only saving grace is the hotel's beautiful grounds with numerous palm trees and tropical flowers, and hammocks strung between them - all with a view of the ocean. The beach is non-existent - a narrow strip of brown sand. The reception and dining area is open air, in serious need of renovation. Breathtaking for all the wrong reasons. The restaurant's centrepiece fishtank was filthy, with flies interrupting our breakfast in the mornings. We avoided the restaurant for lunch/dinner. The level of english amongst most staff was poor. The spa was unable to offer some of its treatments, despite spa staff admitting they'd run out of supplies a while ago- they simply hadn't bothered to restock. What was most galling was the feeling that we were being ripped off at every turn, just because we were tourists. A boat trip out to the Turtle Sanctuary on Isla Arena . We did the same trip ourselves (on a better boat than our fellow hotel guests) . Tricyles to town , we did one way trips ourselves . We understand that luxury hotels charge large amounts for services they provide, it is to be expected. But at a resort where no added value is to be had at all, we found this unacceptable. If you stay here, know that it is a rundown resort, and pay accordingly. We would not recommend this place.
Amazing Resort in the Middle of Nowhere”
really it's amazing journey going to that place, we enjoyed staying and spending our honeymoon there. i recommend all those people who wants to have wonderful experience that will stay at least three nights in that resort. because it's nice place to relaxing and having some fun with romantic time with your lover far from nuisance and noise. just try it and you will see by your self.
Secluded relaxing place for a peace and quite time”
- very nice accommodation - great staff - nice food and reasonably priced - quite nites
Nice location but a very long way from the airport”
we had a pleasant stay, but there is very little to do. beaches are beautiful, but very quiet in the evenings. do not under estimate the distance from the puerto princesa airport it is a 2 hour plus drive to get there. this is ideal for travellers moving around the island, 3 to 4 days maximum!
we came from puerto princesa by car and we had booked standard rooms. at hotel we were offerd to stay in family villa for a surcharge and we decided to take it as standard room is more for young backpackers than for older travelers. we checked also deluxe room whick is a bit better but family villas are excelent, very nuce but also overpriced. the place itself and the surrounding is nice and the fishing with local fishermans is very good.
One of the best hotels ever”
one of the best hotels i have ever stayed in, great place! i recommend it to anybody, the hotel is in a beautiful palm tree park, just by the beach, which is great. the staff is very friendly and helpful, great food and they even have a swimming pool! do not hesitate just choose it !
Excellent place for relaxation, helpfull staff.”
friendly staff and good service.huge compound that makes you feel relax and very quiet environment.
