Krystal Beach Hotel is a 4 Star Hotel situated on the waterfront of the paradisaical Harbour Island Marina, in Gordons Bay.

It is strategically placed and 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. It has easy access to the Cape Winelands in Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Somerset West and Elgin. The magnificent Clarence coastal drive takes you through to Hermanus, where, in season, you can watch the whales blow and breach in their breeding ground.

Our suites, and indeed all our rooms, are widely acclaimed for their spaciousness, peaceful ambience, magnificent sea and mountain views on both sides of the hotel, having either a balcony or a terrace, and with all the mod cons any discerning traveller would expect from a five-star hotel. The beverage stations with refrigerators and Nespresso coffee
machines (in our suites) are much appreciated. If one requires a room conducive to utter relaxation, with absolutely awesome views, one cannot do better than stay at the Krystal Beach. Best of all our rooms are most affordable, and this value-add benefit is arguably unrivalled within the Cape hospitality arena, which makes staying at the Krystal a must.

What differentiates the Krystal Beach Hotel from other fashionable hotels is our floor design that suggests a sense of “Lebensraum” that seamlessly integrates the art gallery, the restaurants and our well-appointed lounges with uncluttered furnishings. The ambience remains warm and welcoming but without any sense of claustrophobia.

Our restaurants offer discerning foodies and Joe Soap diverse menus, and our dishes reflect new trends in both international and
local cuisine. We are always delighted to accommodate any guest’s particular dietary requirements.

The safety of our guests is paramount to us, and our security team remains ever vigilant and professional. Our numerous internal and external CCTV surveillance cameras further monitor people traffic 24/7 for absolute peace of mind.

Krystal Beach Hotel made my wedding day the best day ever. They went out of their way to make the day special. It was the best service I ever had in my life. The food was fabulous as well as the breakfast. The room was neat and spacious. The staff at the restaurant was friendly and helpful. I will recommend the hotel to anyone. Thank you for making the 6 of October 2018 a day I will never forget.

We booked a night at the Krystal Beach Hotel as we wanted to stay in the harbour area.

We decided to book the King Suite as a treat and we were so impressed we immediately booked the following night there too.

We stayed in room 332 and could not find a single fault. We had a nice view over the pool and harbour.

The hotel was full of art (which was also for sale), the rooms were spacious and light. The bed was very comfortable and everything was very clean.

Underground parking is available for those staying at the hotel which was a plus.

There’s nice restaurants and bars a short walk from the hotel too.

We spent last Sunday at the restaurant and we had such a ball. The tables were nicely spaced with comfortable chairs. Great selection of food, a bit of everything enough to cater for everyone’s need. The perfect setting for a Sunday lunch.

A well appointed newly refurbished (complete makeover!) hotel to this part of the world. The bedroom (we had a suite actually) is spacious with good cupboard space, high quality bed linen and air con. Well appointed large bathroom with excellent shower and big towels. Yay!
Two tvs which meant that as a non motor racing fan I could sleep undisturbed while 'Bish' watched in the lounge.
