Our greeting on arrival was very friendly. The room was spacious & clean & well appointed. The view over Groot Brakrivier was great. The pool area was clean & I was offered a drink while relaxing there. Breakfast was well presented & there was enough staff to handle any queries & clear dishes. All in all a very pleasant stay.

Conference venue world class, all the facilities you require, 4 large screens with projectors. Excellent homemade scones and chocolate biscuits. Wonderful setting and excellent views. Thatched boma for evening events. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Will definitely recommend venue and accommodation.

We had a lovely stay with our 1 year old daughter. Very hospitable, great for my daughter. The only thing I would change is the bathroom. But it was a memorable stay. The view from the main balcony and our room was beautiful and we regret only staying for one night.

Absolutely loved this place! We visited Ilita Lodge on a Saturday then went elsewhere on our travels. However, we loved it so much that left a different hotel in the area early to come back here on the Tuesday! The staff are absolutely wonderful - so friendly and very helpful. The rooms are beautifully decorated and have everything in them...

Great views of the ocean. Very Helpful staff. The Lagoon nearby on the island is great for the kids. Dirt road leading to lodge not bad. Breakfast was really good. We loved the area - Lots of plants, trees and fresh air

When traveling (which I do often), it is important to me - especially as a woman - that I feel welcome and secure. Ilita fulfilled both the latter criteria and much, much more. I absolutely loved my stay and felt like part of the family. Add to this the luxurious accommodation, more than adequate tantalizing menu and drinks selection, plus...

If I could give the owners advice. Do not offer Christmas lunches in future. I am not sure of the quality of the food from day to day but Christmas was a huge disappointment. The only reason why we landed at Ilita Lodge was that Fancourt was fully booked and so were all other places in the area. Bland tasteless...

I've used Booking.com for reservation in Sept 2016. We've booked a self-catering unit but upon arrival received a budget unit! We were highly upset but were told that they are fully booked and can't be moved to another unit. They said we should have received a call from their office to explain that we’ve booked a budget unit – but...

Thank you for the 4 stars which suggests we got it right towards the end. We are so sorry that your unit was not 100% completed after the refurb when you arrived. We welcome you back and we would love the opportunity to make it up to you.

We stayed in the Autumn apartment. It was spacious and beautiful with magnificent views of the river and sea. The rooms are clean and comfortable. I was just disappointed at the lack of crockery and utensils to cook with . Also ; because we stayed for a full week , it would've been great to have a washing machine

Thank you for the time taken to review the apartment. We are always at the ready to improve the units the same day. Thank you for letting us know about the kitchen utilities. With regard to laundry facilities, we will make this information clearer when checking in.

We had such a marvelous time -- we even tried to extend our stay. The restaurant was wonderful, the service was excellent, and the view was breathtaking. The only drawback I can think of was that the swimming pool was very small. We will be back next time we're in the area!
