Beautiful surroundings, picturesque view of bush and sea. We stayed in the villas, tastefully furnished and private roof top plunge pool. The kitchen is well equipped if self catering is preferred. The club house supervisor victor is very helpful. The private beach 10 km away is good to visit for the sea experience but nothing special about it. The golf... More

The complex is huge, the scenery is picturesque, the grounds have lush greenery, the villas are amazing, it is secured to a high standard, and the golf course just looks the business, but.... The club house - service is very slow, staff forget your orders, forget to bring the condiments and cutlery. The food is of travelodge standard (sorry chaps,... More

We stayed here in a group of 10 persons for my birthday party and the choice of staying here met everybody satisfaction and need. The beautifully "Malibu" designed houses were comfortable and perfectly hidden in this large sisal estate. The staff were very friendly and Beth always answered our emails and responses on time and for sure the first class... More

The food is good, most of the time. The service has been both horrendous and OK, but to be honest never great, and you only need to be yelled at once for things to seriously drop in my opinion... However, I would go back as I have friends who live/work there and the views are lovely and the food (if... More
