The holiday village has very nice houses in african village style. Located just next to the beach the houses have good equipment and more than enough space. To the Whole-in-the-Wall-Rock itself you need 10 minutes to walk. Breakfast is great over there.

We booked through Flexi Club! The girls at reception were so kind and made us feel welcome immediately. The new manager had only been there a week and was interacting with all the visitors and made eveyone feel very welcome. Our rondawel had a magnificent view. The entire place was booked out and yet we never felt crowded in. There...

Self catering rustic thatch cottages are fully equipped. There is a small store but it is better to bring all your food supplies that you will be needing with you on the trip. There is a basic restaurant but not highly recommended. It is advisable to bring small change as you leave the hotels entrance as one is offered to...

The location is great. The three bed room where we stayed was good ,though some equipment was falling apart ie the braai and some kitchen tools.The beds were clean and comfortable. We did not make use of the restaurant.

The resort itself was fine and the staff excellent But the booking process was problematic. I booked through Booking.com and received prompt confirmation and was advised that Hole in the Wall should be paid directly. However I subsequently received 10 emails from a firm called Fun Holidays (Durban) which all contained incorrect dates - and they deducted a pre-payment from...

We enjoyed our stay very much. Unfortunately it was over a weekend and there was visitors in two chalets who were very noisy. They played their music until very late. We asked management to talk to them with no results. The chalets are very clean and provide everything that we need. The beach is walking distance with the most beautiful...

We had a fabulous time. All the self catering utensils and equipment provided were in good condition and we had no issues except for the dirty water that killed our vibe. The accommodation was clean and spacious and we had easy access to the beach. I would definitely come back again.

We enjoyed our stay overall and the adventure side of things was perfect. We had an amazing staff member at the resort pair us up with a local friend that took us on a 3hr hike for about $30 USD. We covered outstanding and challenging terrain. I would have loved to spend more time in this area. It is a...
