I was at the Africanos for dinner. The service was friendly but non- efficiant. We waited for 15 min to get a drink, the table opposite was occupied later but first served. The organisation between the stuff is a complete desaster. 3 employees at the reception and hardly anybody in the crowded restaurant. The bar besides - no customers but... More

As one of the few restaurants in the Addo area this is a place you will get good food for a very reasonable price. Don't expect fine dining. Plates are made up like that but portions are far to big to call it fine. The menu has a wide variety from pizza, pasta to steaks, burgers and fish. Friendly staff... More

Immaculately clean, beautifully presented hotel. Lovely food, great value too. Nice pool with free range of sunscreens available. Huge bathrooms! Nice outdoor shower. Has a little playroom and an outdoor climbing frame both by the restaurant, which helped amuse our son a bit during mealtimes. The only drawback was there's no door between the bathroom and sleeping/living area so light... More

We stayed three nights here. The premises were recently built in the middle of nowhere at 60 km from Port Elisabeth and 1 hour driving at calm speed -what our driver did not!- from AddoEP. Everything looks well designed and expensive. On the other hand with a lack of any cosy atmosphere. The room, the bathroom and the extensive pool... More

The condition of the room was very good, still very new, spacious, clean. Especially the outdoor shower was a great feature and nice to have with the hot weather. I... More

Resort looks great at first sight - new, well designed, expensive looking, nice fixtures and fittings, plush reception etc. etc. However the small but important details are missing. Rooms have a huge bathroom but that means only small living/bed area. So much effort on looking trendy and stylish but no storage space and only a couple of tiny waste bins... More

Best place to eat around Addo - lovely food and very well served. Reasonable prices and helpful staff. Would definitely go back and try to stay there next time. All rooms have air con which can be a must when temperatures are in the 40's.
