I travelled alone but never felt alone, was looked after very well with both the diving and the best hostess I have come across, Nicki, who went way beyond pointing me in the right direction she would drag me to a restaurant...

When you go scuba diving, you expect some effort to go along with your weekend away with kit and gear and such. I barely had to lift a finger all weekend! Lovely rooms. Great service. Friendly and helpfull people. Very capable dive team and skippers. Decent breakfast. Overall a wonderful and highly recommended experience. A little more pricey, but totally... More

When I left, it felt like I was saying good-bye to family and friends. I traveled by myself and stayed for 5 nights. Nicki was very kind and was a very good hostess going above and beyond with going out to dinner with me a couple of times. The accommodations were very clean with nothing to complain about. Plenty of... More

As stated, this is my second review of this resort (but I have by no means only been there twice) I cannot emphasise enough just how fantastic Aghulas house is! Once you have been here, all other diving resorts will seem like a motel-like place. I have gotten to knwo all the staff members on a personal basis, and applaud... More

This was one of my highlights of my trip... too be able to dive with sharks! A once in a lifetime experience. They have a awesome team at Agulhas. Jody and Lauren are friendly, helpful and go beyond the call of duty:) I hadn't dived in a while and arrived without my diving card. But this was soon sorted out,... More

Agulhas House recognises that some divers prefer to have clean, comfortable, "up-market" accommodation. Rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable, bedding is smart and clean and all the amenities (coffee and tea, TV, safes in rooms etc.) are present. The booking process was efficient and effective. Mickey and I discussed dive and accommodation options via email and everything was booked and... More

One of my more regular venues over the past 8 years. I would never stay anywhere else on the South Coast. The people are friendly, and you always feel safe and welcome. Often leave my room open when going off diving and have never had a bad experience. Mickeys breakfasts are legendary and rooms and bathrooms always spotless. Vegard is... More
