Never a dissapoinment. Always friendly staff and food is great, the dinner rolls are my favorite. Location is everything. Great natural diversity and beautiful scenery. Perfect for every occasion.....

We stayed in a rondavel with view on the ocean and immense estuarium. Kayaks available to get to the beach. We had a firm massage in their spa. Restaurant buffet was average. The tv lounge has a funny cimema set up! They serve complimentary snacks at the bar around 1800 hours.We could have stayed longer and will return.

Stunning location and friendly staff. A really relaxing break. Would recommend for couples or families looking for a holiday with a difference. Amazing views, getting back to nature. Really exquisite bird life in the area for those who are into birdwatching.

I think the views from this hotel are outstanding, this is the second time I have stayed here. I was a little bit disappointed this time with my room but understand the complex is being renovated. The food is fab and staff super friendly

Lovely hotel on the beach, great fun canoeing across the little river, food was delicious and plentiful especially the breakfast which was yummy, rooms are very dated and in need of renovation but this is ongoing and will be completed, the family room could have done with a bedside lamp as had to use a torch to read with, no...

Check in protocols need to be re evaluated as the Reception Staff left no impression on any of our party. The 'rondavels' offer basic comfort. The views from the deck, dinning area and certain rooms however are truly beautiful. The open area in the dinning area that serves the whole day, a wide range of teas, hot chocolate, coffees and...

After travelling 35 km on a poorly maintained gravel road we finally reached out hotel. This hotel was the first leg of our Meander Walk. Although this hotel needs some serious maintenance the views are unbelievable. There is free coffee/tea available with little cup cakes. The pre-dinner snacks were also great. The food was really good. The rooms are very...

Right on the edge of the lagoon, with a wonderful view of the river mouth and pristine beach stretching for 3 kms to the next headland, Wavecrest is ideally placed for the most relaxing and laid back holiday. Great food, friendly and very helpful staff, and really good value. And who can complain about 3km of white sandy beach virtually...

Road to Wavecrest from Kentani (Centane) proved a little challenging at the beginning for a 2WD but the further you got to the Hotel the better the road became. Still it is a slow trip and took much longer than we anticipated. Allow extra time for this part of the journey Wavecrest booking and payment systems are very organised and...

The hotel, rooms, swimming pool, deck, chairs, etc need serious maintrnance. The swimming pool is green and full of alge. There are also no sun loungers. The uncomfortable benches in front of bungalows and chairs on deck has no cushions.
