The cottage as well as the entire resort was extremely clean. The chalet has a lovely layout and the kitchen is well equipped. We loved the pantry! The staff are friendly and helpful. Best suited to a family holiday! The restaurant on site serves a scrumptuous breakfast!

Was driving back from port elizabeth and needed somewhere to spend the night. Phoned all around knysna and most places had no rooms. Eventually got a room at the club. Saw great reviews online and was rated 4 star. The accomodation was a standard self catering unit with barbeque supplies outside. Well finished with features suiting people staying for longer...

Arrived following long journey from Western Cape. Previous accommodation had all been very good and of a standard we expected. We arrived here to be directed to what can only described as a 'sauna'. Supposed to be a log cabin but was actually a small pine clad shed. 1 bedroom was OK ,the second bedroom was dark and dingy and...

We stayed toward the end of a fortnight in South Africa. After very good accommodation at other venues, this brought us right down to earth! The chalets are pretty basic and (based on the two we saw) in need of considerable updating, which should at least include air-conditioning and a hair drier, just for a start. What was inexcusable was...

We stayed for one night and it was wonderful we now regret not having stayed a bit longer . The chalets are all wood and seem well maintained each one has a Weber bar b so you can have your own braai.

This resort has so much to offer for young kids. I was disappointed though with the lack of service. When we arrived, we were given the keys & directed to the chalet, however when we got to the chalet it wasn't ready yet. The cleaner had just arrived to clean it & it was well passed "checking in" time. The...

Advertising a little misleading, due to the property being a narrow strip moving longitudinally up from the lagoon only a couple of the units in the front row or two have a lagoon view, the view for the balance is basically looking into other cabins surrounding you and are very uncomfortably close, a few meters in some instances , if...

Short 2 night stay. Wooden lodge was nicely laid out. Two large bed rooms and bathrooms connecting to a central kitchen and lounge area. Nice balcony/outdoor area. The site is a little compact and steep in places which may be an issue for some less confident drivers or those with a disability. You can walk into the Quays from the...
