I woke up Monday morning (18th) thinking that nothing would stand in my way of winding down work and starting the perfect break. No alcohol, gym, early dinner, pack the bag, bed by 10. No problemo right. Wrong. Safety had booked a 7am monthly meeting at the Explo Camp. Surviving this, I was told that my team wanted to have a function …
... had our first real Mexican dinner, guacamole & chips to start and fajitas. And with 2for1 happy hour in progress we couldn't be rude...margaritas all round!! We took the local bus down to the hotel zone to find out what all the hype was about. After being on the bus for 45min we realised we missed our stop so it was a quick dart across the road to catch the bus from other direction. The main club zone ...
Not much happened today. The weather was pretty ******, cloudy and raining on and off but still around 25oC. We slept late and headed out to get breakfast. Once we got back to the hotel Bobbie spent most of the day in the room reading the Steven King book she had acquired from the hotel in downtown Cancun. I went for a swim when the weather had cleared up for long enough. We had been to ...
... really fascinating seeing these 65 million year old rock formations and surprisingly not that scary being under there. There was also a 6.2 mile long track we drove on a four wheeler through the Caribbean jungle and into eight caves - this was so much fun!! just after we left it was pelting down rain, thunder, lightening the works it was so full on I could barely see while driving and at some points the water we were driving through was ankle deep in our four ...
... couple from Australia on a 6 month trip who had done much of what we are about to do so we got great tips. The Cancun strip where most of the hotels are looks a bit like Spanish resorts I've been to and to be honest, its looking a bit tired and run down. Looking down the beach its a massive row of hotels which look character-less. There are much nicer Caribbean locations to visit in my opinion but I guess many guests don't need to leave the hotel if they ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Krystal Cancun
Me and my friend sayed there for a week over spring break time. I have never stayed in a nicer hotel, and I have stayed in many. The people were nice and very accomodating. The rooms were beautiful, and we were lucky enough to get a room with an ocean view! There was a variety of pools to choose from, and you can't really see it in the photos, but there was also a swim up bar, which was nice. They keep it very clean as well. I would stay away from using the phone if it is not local, because we were stuck with a very spendy phone bill, after only using it for 10 minutes. All in all, it was excellent.
Will definitely be going back next year
I have no complaints about the Krystal. We loved the location, as we were in cancun on spring break we were located right next to all the big clubs. Although the Krystal itself wasnt a wild spring break hotel its convenience easily made up for it. The best part was they gave us no problem when bringing "guests" late at night. Most cancun hotels wont let people in that arent staying there without a hefty tip.
Stay away from this one
This place is worth about $20.00/night. We had a sewage smell one night that just about made us puke. The beds were terribly hard, and you might as well wad up your t-shirt as a pillow. (it would be better) There were electrical covers missing on outlets, A/C wouldn't keep the room cool, no screens on the windows, no hair dryers for the girls. On a positive note, the pool area is great, the beach is pretty nice, and 90% of the staff is fabulous.
Krystal Cancun Hotel
This was my second year in a row at the Krystal Cancun Hotel. Both times got rooms facing the ocean overlooking the wonderful pool area. Very nice hotel in good shape. Very close to everything so we didn't even take a bus anywhere just walked. We had great weather both trips. Great staff, just don't do the time-share talks, they high pressure you if you agree to take a look at what they are selling.
I'm staying there for the third time
Ive stayed at the Camino Real next store and have vised the Fiesta Americana Coral Beach (FACB), and while it doesn't have the opulance of the FACB it's more luxurious than the gaudy Camino Real. I've also stayed and the Carissa y Palmas nearby (a place to sleep and leave your things) and the Beach Palace (all inclusive, too restrictive). I've found the rooms to be very clean, although perhaps without the greatest views. The view from the casual restaraunt at breakfast cant be beat, cou can't tell where the pool ends and the Carribean.
Cancun "star" ratings are bought and paid for by the hotel's and mean nothing. Krystal bathrooms have only two small lights over the large sink area and it just does not light up the tub or shower very well but it's not really that much of a problem. Some of their tubs have rust or dirt imbedded in them which is never removed. Rooms in the 5th to 8th floor are better than those below due to excessive water pressure causing splash into sinks.
This hotel is the worst, dirty,noisy,terrible service and above all stinky, stay away from it.
An ok hotel
i recently stayed at this hotel and didnt really enjoy it. The lighting is terrible in the bathroom, its dark in the shower. The first two nights i stayed there, the room smelled like wet dirt. The hotel looks ugly from the outside, but once you walk into the lobby the marble floors make it look a bit nicer. The pool was nice and so was the beach.The location was great, its walking distance from restaurants and clubs. good hotel for families. But i dont think i will ever stay at this hotel again. You can stay at a much better hotel for the same price.
We stayed at Krystal Hotel 5/21/02-5/28/02, it was an unpleasant experienced. The first night our 3 yrs old son used the toilet, it was not flushing, we had to call the desk to fix the problem. The next time my 4 yrs old daughter used the toilet, it was the same, the toilet does not flushed. Finally I had to go to the front desk a report the inconvenience, it does not make sense every time we used the toilet it does not flush. They finally corrected the problem. The room does not have a hair dryer and they don't have a wash cloth. Occassionally there is a sewer smell that comes out of the bathroom. The bathroom was inproperly lit, it was dark in the shower area, the tub has a rusty stains on the sides. The wall are built so thin, you could hear the people's conversation when they were walking in the hallway. The sounds of the disco music sometimes vibrates in your room. You could hear a Couple making out in the next 2 rooms adjacent to our room. The clientele the Krystal Hotel attracts are so roudy, they are very inconsiderate, making loud noises and conversations in the middle of the night, around 1:00 A.M. We woke up from the sound of the other guest noises, thinking there was a big fight. You could also smell Marijuana weeds being smoke by the other guest. There were something wrong with the bedsheets, me and my daughter develop a rash. Good thing I brought a spare bedsheets to use instead of the hotel sheets. Indeed, it was a very unpleasant experience.
I have stayed at the Krystal and im going back there in 2 months. The people are so friendly and there are many things to do. It's a very nice hotel and very relaxing!
