The resort is looking in great shape with all the gardens very green and well kept. We had a very spacious room with all the self catering amenities that we could think of. We also had a sheltered barbeque area. The food and service at the "Joe Fish" restaurant provided good value for money. The close access to the beach...

The stay was awesome and we will sure be visiting next year again. Our learners really enjoyed the stay especially the swimming pool seen as they do not swim often because they are staying in a reserve.

Having stayed at the resort a number of times, this is still the best place to stay. Only 45 minutes from Port Elizabeth. Great entertainment available for kids. Wonderful relaxing atmosphere. Will definitely return

good and neat accommodation. The reception could improve though. The bar service can also improve for better. The waiting period for check in was a problem> the friendliness of the eception people could also improve. The breakfast buffe was substandard. The dinner braai was epic

I have never experienced such in my life. You guys are one in a million. Keep up the good work. You were considerate of my dietary needs, the food was exceptional. My cottage/penthouse was perfect. The WiFi connection was strong at all times. The boat cruise was something else.
