We've been going to San Lameer for many years now and always stay in the most beautiful villa, which wants for nothing. Please note that this review is about the hotel, NOT the property. First off, the poolside menu has changed, and one can no longer have just a toasted sandwich - and the prices are not friendly to South... More

The room was fantastic. The number of stairs was a huge irritation and we actually didn't want to go out of the room because of that. The food was mediocre to put it kindly. The staff were delightful. The buildings looked so ugly, but the river view was nice. I wouldn't stay there again as it really doesn't have enough... More

Hotel is ok. Rooms average, a little more attention to cleaning. Service absolutely shocking , no supervision guests are left to fend for them selves. Estate is immaculate and a lovely setting for a Holliday , just not in the hotel! Rather stay in a self service villa!

Besides a wonderful resort of San Lameer. What a treat at this hotel that serves a scrumptious buffet. Beautiful surroundings and wonderful food. A selection of salads , best chicken curry , excellent pork loin . Not to mention the desert cheese cake.

Our family rented one of the villas over New Years 2015, and this has got to be one of the nicest holidays I've ever been on. From the beach to the golf course to the spa, you cannot get a better holiday for the whole family, young to old, active to Inactive. I am already trying to book our holiday... More

We absolutely loved the resort a great place with loads on offer. The rooms in the hotel are great only let down was that our rooms were not ready until after 15:00 which was the official check in time. The majority of our stay from the 28th December until the 2 January 2016 was enjoyed by the whole family. What... More

My fiancée and I stayed at the San Lameer at the end of a very long drive as a stopover on our way to visit friends north of Durban. At first glance, the resort impresses with its carefully manicured lawns, its palm trees lined drive to the houses and the hotel. The later however is past its prime and could... More

We stayed at a 1 bedroom superior villa for 5 nights. The villa was gorgeous and felt at home. Everything you can think of is provided for. You can walk to the beach from the resort.
