Great sea view. Very relaxing atmosphere and the staff were kind enough to prepare a delicious meat-free breakfast separately given our halal food needs. Very warm and welcoming hosts. Safe secure parking. Walking distance from the beach.

The bed was uncomfortable, the TV was very old and made a horrible noise. The towels provided had holes in them. Not what we expected for a 4 star...

If lazing around the pool is not for you, there is plenty to keep you busy during your stay with us. Sandy beaches stretch for miles along the coast of the warm Indian ocean, which offers a variety of activities including safe, protected swimming, surfing, or scuba diving with the sharks at Protea Banks and Aliwal Shoal. Whale & dolphin watching boat trips, angling and deep sea fishing trips are also very popular. For the avid golfer, the area boasts 6 of South Africa's top 100 golf courses according to the Complete Golfer Rankings, which are guaranteed to test your skills & astound you with their scenery.For the nature lover or adrenalin junkie, extreme adventures at the spectacular white river rafting - in season.
