We stayed at a unit at Fairways. What a let down. This resort is desperately in need of an upgrade! It is very dated and poorly appointed.The servicing staff were inefficient and left our unit dirty and untidy.The Eagles Nest restaurant was a disgrace too. The staff were inattentive. The food was cold and not stocked up.The whole resort area...

They have maintained their excellent standard over the years as one of the best equipped timeshares that I have ever stayed at. Their staff are always friendly and helpful. Noticed that they have installed a Reuter/, modem upstairs not yet in operation. Informed by their staff that they hope their wifi service will be in operation in the near future....

Fairways is situated in a 18 hole golf course. It is nestled in a valley surrounded by mountains. We occupied a proper four sleeper unit with two beds in the attic and a queen bed in the en-suite. It had a sunken lounge and a large verandah with braai facilities. The unit was well maintained and the staff were very...

Last year it was a winter break.... this year it was in glorious summer and both holidays were equally enjoyable.

The semi detached chalet is well equipped and comfortable. The verandah looks out over the golf course and up to the berg and the rhino peak and overlooks the golf course.

The units are neat and equipped very well and have spectacular views of the mountain. The resort has a lot to offer in the way of entertainment and amenities.

We went away as a family and stayed at Fairways. Was so impressed with the facilities available, especially for children. It completely made our weekend.

A muddle up with our booking. We were told we had booked chalet 116 and when we arrived it was already occupied but the receptionist found us another chalet. 161 which was too far away for the wheel chair for my 90 year old mother. That was the whole purpose of our visit to give my Mum a treat. Luckily...
