Wonderful, friendly staff in a great location, with an added bonus of whale watching from our deck.

6/10 Good

Great room with private pool. A decent amount of the hotel staff don't really care too much about their job. The bar staff in particular. Your big lad on reception with the hair needs some customer service training urgently. We arrived early and expected to just leave our bags at reception & check in later. All we got was "check in is at 2pm". We had to ask if it was possible to leave out bags & come back later. A seriously terrible first impression of your resort. I had breakfast at 7:30am one morning on a table closest to the beach. Someone had discarded a wet wipe in the middle of the path leading out onto the beach and was in clear site. At 10am it was still there!! The shorter lady who was behind the bar most mornings did NOTHING unless she was asked. Super lazy and not what we expected from your 4.5 star rating. We experienced this lack of service from her for the entire 5 days we stayed with you. She seemed to just stare into the computer screen behind the bar endlessly leaving dirty dishes & glasses for long periods until one of your other staff collected them. You seriously need to have a chat with her as she clearly doesn't want to work for you. Mold all around the pool in our room as well as a little disappointing. Room 31

A special place, easy to recommend!
I would strongly recommend the Crown Beach Resort. The staff were the highlight, along with the setting. We enjoyed the sunsets (along with the reasonably priced happy hour cocktails) and nearly daily view of whales. Food was nice, and also reasonably priced. Some excellent restaurants not far away (i.e., walking distance). Appreciated the adults only nature, sitting by the pool in the afternoon, and some swimming in the lagoon immediately beside the resort. The resort location was not as exciting for snorkeling, but a short public push ride south was easy to do, and that was an excellent location for that. Our unit looked a little dated, but very well maintained, very comfortable, and very large. We stayed a week, and would have been happy to stay longer if we could have.

Absolutely perfect for honeymoon. Nice and relaxed with a beautiful beachfront area. The splash pool was delightful on hot days in such a private walled area.

6/10 Good

Beachfront villa was nice enough, spacious. Staff were mostly friendly and helpful. Massage was great. Maintenance and cleaning good enough. Cultural night fun but buffet not a patch on the Edgewater’s last June. Resort very overpriced for the standard. Apart from the Villa that housed us well, overall it was disappointing. We cancelled the 2nd part of our holiday and booked in elsewhere. Food and breakfast very average (bacon once in 7 days). Bland and limited variety. Cooking not cheffing. Pool okay. Dirty sun beds need re-painting and too few. Beach not very usable. Simple to fix as they have done at other nearby resorts. Rocks/coral & foliage need clearing and sand raked. 3 sun beds only for use on beach and always taken so nothing to sit on. It is supposed to be a beach resort. Can’t understand why they didn’t sort all this during lockdown, ready for opening up.

2/10 Poor

This is our third stay at the Crown Beach resort and spa. Our initial suite we were taken too was by far below the standard we had come to associate with the Crown Beach resort. The initial suite we were given was not suitable for guests. The pool was full of insects, the garden was unkept and the bathroom and toilet were still unclean. When flushing the toilet the water was black. There was also an Ant problem with large ants outside and inside the suite. Contacting the front desk and asking for another room as we advised about the shortcomings of the room. Instead of offering another suite suitable, they sent the maintenance crew to try and rectify the room. Upon arrival, the maintenance team advised they will speak to the reception area as the room was not ready for guests. This took over 2 hours to complete. on 18th Feb, we were placed in forced quarantine. For 3 days we were left with no clean linen, no laundry services or any other services which we pay for. upon exit, our refund was undercalculated with the amount received being far smaller than what we paid. While isolating, the GM tried to placate our stay with a gift of cheap wine and a magazine for attractions to visit on the island.... WE WERE ISOLATING which was insensitive and frankly an insult. Overpriced for what you get in terms of quality and service provided. The ONLY saving grace was the hand-full of staff that have remained from previous stays. Very disappointed guests.
