Dear Terry I am not sure what negative reviews you are referring to? There have been a lot of incorrect postings for a lodge in another part of South Africa. We keep having to report the incorrect postings. Amanzi has just won Best Sea View lodge for 2015 and has a 9.7 rating We are very proud of our staff who are 100% African staff who are relishing the opportunity to grow with us. Let me assure you Catherine and I are 200% committed to delivering only the best at Amanzi and we have very exiting announcements to make Amanzi even better in 2017. I look forward to chatting about anything you feel we could improve. All the best and thank you very much for your support James 27823337337

"The suite with self catering was amazing."
"Dolphin Suite is fabulous - but don't think there is a 'bad' room here"
"Our favourite is the Dolphin Suite - it has a small balcony, with seating for two, with views over the lagoon"
"Best views at the front"
"Book a lagoon facing room but not under the communal terrace"
