We very much enjoyed our stay here. Breakfast was very good, the staff friendly, and the area is a great place to stay on Sun Moon Lake. When we visited, tourism was way down due to Covid 19. We felt the hotel had all the needed safety protocols in place, and did not let the lack of guests reduce their level of service. It was everything we expect from a highly rated hotel. The village of Ita Thao has a lot of indigenous charm, and nearby attractions like the Culture Park and Gondola are worth a visit. There is some construction on the waterfront currently.
Our favorite hotel over a two-week visit to Taiwan. We loved the suites with the jetted tub, swivel tv, large windows and beautiful breakfast room overlooking the lake. The location was perfect for us as we don't like the crush of loud people and tour groups. Tip: It is unclear how to get across the lake when you arrive on the bus with your luggage but we bought the lake pass and took the ferry across.
位於伊達邵，距離日月潭纜車站只800公尺，很適合當旅遊的基地。晶澤別館單純客房，一樓是飲料店，有點雜亂，也沒窗外景色，但設施與晶澤會館共用。櫃檯出售優惠渡船一日票，提供有用的旅遊訊息，早餐豐富，價格合理，房間舒適有設計感，整體而言還是推薦。 The Crystal Inn is located in Ita-Thao with 800 m distance to the rope way of Sun-Moon Lake. The price is reasonable, comfortable although there is no view for the window and the entrance is shared with a drink shop. However, the helpful staffs provide useful information and the hotel provides cruise day ticket with very good discount and the breakfast is good.
Stayed here for one night - which in my opinion is good enough for sun moon lake. Great location - viewing the lake - nice staff and good breakfast. Very recommendable. As for food keep in mind that everything shuts down around 19h so be prepared.
The room was clean, and my kids loved the bathtub. It is also just right next to the night market - though the entire in general is very small - just 1.5 streets of food/ shops which close before 8pm. So the DVD rental was very useful in helping keeping the family entertained at night. The view of the lake at the breakfast area is beautiful.
So we like 4-5 star hotels but the 2 hotels that we really liked around Sun Moon Like but they were way out of our price range unfortunately so we settled with The Crystal, a fine looking 4-star property. Our room is amazingly spacious with an outside terrace. The staff is friendly and very helping. But don't be fooled by the hotels 'we are part of luxury hotels' website. It looks a lot different in real like then shown. Although it is perfectly fine, do not expect a luxury property. It is outdated, bit run down 3-star hotel at best. One scary lift, not a real bar, restaurant closed, breakfast is meh, observervation deck is a joke, room decoration is outdated etc. I do not mind all this, but expectations looking at the website were a lot higher, so that leaves you disappointed. Staff is polite but the whole hotel needs a major upgrade to make it a 4-star hotel.…
Sun Moon Lake in central Taiwan is a natural reservoir and lovely getaway from urban life. It's about 3-4 hours by train/bus or bus from Taipei. We visited the region on the recommendation of a colleague and enjoyed it tremendously. We picked the Crystal Resort from the reviews and images including on Tripadvisor and chose the coach directly from Taipei. From Shuishe visitors centre a local bus took us to Ita Thao, about 15 minutes drive (the alternative is the Ferry across the lake). The Crystal Resort is just across the road from the pier. Ita Thao is an aboriginal village with a mixture of new and old development, with the Crystal Resort being one of the new ones. It's a narrow building with three apartments per floor. Check in was polite and professional, and though the communication was in Mandarin, it became obvious that the staff did speak English (though I am uncertain to what proficiency). The suites are well proportioned with good sized balconies. The Lake View rooms looked over the lake and the town with balcony access, and I am not sure if the other rooms had similar or any views at all. The sleep comfort is superb. The bathrooms are large and include a spa bath enough for two adults. Ita Thao township has several food outlets and tourist shopping, but it is still a small village. The 7 Eleven was one of the largest and busiest shops in town. The aboriginal food seemed largely Chinese influenced, but still different, and very appealing. The ferry across the lake is a short ride (about 15-20 minutes), and connects back to Shuishe. You can walk in either direction around the lake very pleasantly, though it is likely to be an all day affair if circumnavigating. Highly recommend the Crytal Resort.…
The area around this hotel is pretty crowded. Many hotels/guesthouses on a small area. We stayed here for 2 nights what is pretty long, as there’s not so much to do. We had the family suite which was really nice. Free drinks in the fridge. The breakfast is really simple. Al least they offer free DVD’s to watch and a motorcycle shuttle to the car parking.
It is very nice hotel - the one near Yuchi Boat Terminal - Sun Moon Lake Friendly and good service staff Location: can walk around the and enjoy the life in small town. Love this place, you can have the view of Sun Moon Lake
This hotel is located right in front of the lake with beautiful views. The room is quite odd in the sense that there is no door separating the toilet, the bathroom and the bedroom. Instead, it is separated with partitioned curtains. Toilet bowl is very advanced tech, will flush automatically after you use it. Front desk staff is very helpful. As soon as you arrived at the hotel, will come out to greet you and check your details, and made sure that everything is in order. Their fitness centre is very small, seriously not really a fitness centre more like exercise area and children's play area, as weights and machines are missing. Breakfast buffet was not bad, got both Asian and Western selection.
