A wonderful family holiday destination. Fantastic location and excellent service! Relaxed, not fancy which is ideal for a good relaxing holiday. Beautiful walks loved the kayaking up the river and great beaches and snorkeling too. Wonderful bird life. A really super holiday highly recommended

We decided to get away for a few days before our baby is due and this was the perfect place for us. We were so relaxed and the staff were amazing always willing to help and the food was awesome. Loved every moment we spent there. Will definitely be going back to Wavecrest.

Food was very nice home cooked meals, the location was beautiful , a perfect little spot to escape the hustle and bustle of the world , just kick your feet up and read a book or go for long walk or just drink watch the waves roll in

We stayed 2 nights at Wavecrest. They were full when we arrived and went out of their way and made a plan to accommodate us. The food was outstanding and offered 3 meals a day. The staff was also unbelievably friendly and good. Thank you for making our stay very pleasant.

The location of this hotel was unbelievable on the Wild Coast of South Africa. The beach stretched out before us almost always with a mist coming in from the waves crashing onto the beach. We were there for a gallop along the beach and rides into the interior. The hotel is situated at the river estuary and so canoeing, river...
