Place is full of spiders. When we complained about it the management stopped us from entering the premises. She was very rude and not helpful at all. They do not fumigate the cottages. Not nice sleeping with things crawling on your pillow!

My wife and i have just spent four nights based at Bydidam and loved it. It's definitely peaceful and tranquil and we unwound wonderfully. The chalets are extremely clean and excellent and provide everything one needs for a stay. Very private too. We loved just sitting and admiring the view across the dam during the early morning peace and at...

This establishment meets all expectations: a scenic setting on the edge of a large dam surrounded by mountain ranges. The unit itself is well-equipped for self-catering and a large private braai area overlooking the dam is available for use. This resort has no shortcomings if you are looking for a rustic setting with all the mod cons. You have full...

Stayed here for three nights just after New Year. There was some confusion on check in with our original chalet not being available, and the one we had been moved to we were not happy with as it was much closer to the resort centre / restaurant and thus less peaceful and not as good a view. However after emailing...
