I must extend my biggest compliments to your staff; they were wonderful. The security at the front gate were always smiling and waving whether we were entering or leaving. There was not one moment where we passed them at the gates that we were not greeted with a smile. The security at the gate is the first impressions a guest will get when coming to Crystal Springs. After an extremely long car ride, you see the signs for your destination and you are greeted the way the security greeted us; it's amazing. You feel like yaaaay we are here; not the usual ah just get me inside. Big congratulations to them; the first impressions you get of the staff there they are doing a very good job. When we drove through the Resort every staff member we passed would smile and wave ;whether they were walking or driving. Now it's very easy to walk and look down and act as if you did not see the car approaching you from behind; but this was never the case. The staff members always smiled and waved when we passed them.” – July 2017
