This place really does what it says it does. It is a retreat and you get the added bonus of beautiful sub tropical rainforest. We stayed in one of the Rainforest Canopy Bungalows. These are really well appointed, clean, neat and tidy with everything you might need. We self catered and all the essential cutlery glasses and plates were all...

We celebrated our 50 th wedding anniversary here and it is a very beautiful and romantic getaway. We stayed in Satinash which was exceptionally well appointed. Very clean and modern and surrounded by glass with a secluded, private outlook into the rainforest. Wake up to a bird symphony. It was very relaxing and a memorable experience.

This place is unbelievable, the nature surrounding us was unforgettable, the facilities are private and well decorated, in the middle of nature, with all the amenities. Great place to learn about rainforest and wildlife, observe and meditate. The walks are beautiful and well indicated. Staff very friendly. Huge DVD collection. Amazing for couples. Food wonderful. The mountain lodge and creekside...

It may have been five star once but our cottage looked tired. It looked like the kitchen was modernised. However, the floor timbers ran in opposite directions and looked like an amateurish job. It did not look professional at all. The balcony doors and screens looked shabby. The cottage was a great size for two and well equipped. The staff...

We stayed in the Tamarind Bungalow for 3 nights. The room was lovely - gorgeous rainforest view from the bed, the spa, the lounge, the deck, the kitchen. Felt very private. We did see 1 or 2 couples through the trees, heading down to the creek to the walking tracks, but otherwise felt completely alone, which was ideal. I think...

Spent two nights in a luxury mountain view lodge celebrating our anniversary and we were both blown away by our room and the amazing view - we felt like we were on some tropical remote island high up in the trees. The solar heated pool was perfect for the warm weather we had - the amenities provided in the room...

The bungalow wasn't clean properly. We found blod on the bed couchion, very dirty bathroom's door and cobweb on the walls. Also, glass on the floor and my partner cut his foot. They just asked "sorry" to us. It's a 5 stars hotel, they have only 13 bungalows they should be very clean!

My husband and I spend a week and found the accommodation setting wonderfully secluded. The meals were tasty and abundant, the girls helpful and friendly (nothing was too much trouble - thanks Shelley and Kathrine!). A wonderful place to wind down. The only 'not so good' feedback would be that the accommodation may have benefited from a coat of paint...

As probably the youngest couple to stay let alone afford this place as a new couple we feel as though we had set our standards waayyyy to high! Accompanied to the front door, complementary bottle of wine, robes, slippers! Really felt like you had your own secluded slice of rainforest.

We visited Crystal Creek for 2 nights recently for a weekend of rest and relaxation and it absolutely didn't disappoint. We arrived after dark on Fri night and were promptly whisked away in the buggy with our luggage to our cabin - we stayed in the Tamarind Bungalow. It was Devine - everything had been thought of!
