My husband and I heard about Wavecrest by word of mouth. Everyone raved about it so we had to see for ourselves. It proved to be a worthwhile trip that we look forward to doing again. The location is amazing in terms of natural beauty and bird life. The accommodation was very good, clean and comfortable. The food was amazing...

It is a beautiful location with awesome views. The staff was great. The receptionist was very helpful in upgrading our rooms to where we wanted to stay. We enjoyed the weekend very much. Will recommend to friends.

If you're after a stay with absolute luxury this is not for you. However, if you would like to stay in absolutely stunning natural beauty in slightly more basic accommodation then Wavecrest offers fantastic value for money. Both the guests and the staff were warm and welcoming and we will definitely be returning!

A paradise for fishing and birding, hiking and paddling. Dress casual and friends easily made. Totally safe and secluded along a beautiful coastline. Our room needs a basic upgrade but linen is good. This is a place for a relaxed at one with nature holiday

Hotel a bit tired but due for an upgrade in May next year. I definitely will be returning for two stays next year. The trip was a fishing one, but my future intention will be to stay longer and to experience the many other aspects of this beautiful coastline.

We passed through here after our third day of trekking the Wild Coast with the Trek South Africa team and were completely blown over with how friendly teh staff were and how amazing the location is.

We had the most awesome experience with Sean the Assistant manager who kindly took us around birdwatching. He spent hours with us and went out of his way to show us "lifers". The hotel is due to be revamped so that is on the cards for the early part of next year. The staff could show a wee bit more...

So impressed, staff, facility food amazing. We went to Wavecrest Beach Hotel for my husband's 60th birthday. What a lovely experience. Every member of staff was so friendly, accommodating. I would love especially to thank Unathi and Tebulani (hope the spelling is correct) as they displayed such professionalism and courtesy at all times. The dinners were excellent. We went on...

What a beautiful setting with very helpful staff, who always tried to please one. Plenty to do with boat trips, long walks and canoeing, not to mention the possibility of tennis, squash and mountain biking. Outstanding service.
