Unfortunately Palm Dunes have the market cornered if you are going attend a wedding there. R 700 p.p.n you expecting something decent... This place is supposed to be a 4 star...I don't think so.... The TV in the room is still an old box TV and the signal is so bad the picture is total blurry. The walls are so... More

Place is a joke, 1 star at best, staff are clueless, rooms resemble a cheap backpackers at the price of a boutique hotel, if you must attend a wedding there book elsewhere! What a shame, such potential and it is clear that the owners don't give a rat's!

What a great venue! The setting is spectacular. On the beach with the beaches stretching for miles. The venue caters for weddings and conferences with great care. The facilities are great. The staff and management attentive and highly effecient. The owner Mark is a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended venue for weddings or conferences. You won't be disappointed!

My wife and I attended a wedding at Palm Dune during March 2014, we stayed two nights. We really looked forward to the stay at the "Four Star" Lodge on the beach. Boy were we disappointed. Firstly I must say that the wedding and the reception itself, which was hosted by Plam Dune, was very good and very beautifully. However,... More

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights for a wedding. The rooms are comfortable enough, but lack of adequate lighting in the dressing area and no hairdryer were a bit annoying. There is a small kitchenette in the rooms for those interested in self-catering. The two swimming pools on the property and both seemed clean and well-maintained. The... More

We attended a wedding there recently and were not very impressed. As we first arrived we thought it was absolutely beautiful. You cannot beat the location and setting. We loved the set up of the lodge and the pool areas. It was a pity that it rained all weekend though. Service was very slow and it took them 50 minutes... More

Attended as a wedding guest. Despite so called special rates it is complete rip off, dingy dark room under the wedding venue. We had to endure moving of furniture around after wedding for another hour or so after the function ended. There was noo hot water in the room. No light at the dressing table, insufficient lighting in the room,... More

As guests at a wedding in very heavy rain, our twin room was small, badly set up, poorly lit and horribly overpriced, despite the offer of a "Special Rate". The basin in the bathroom was so low it would have been better for a child. The cheap and nasty carpeting was permanently damp. It was definitely not 4 star accommodation... More

We got married in April 2010 in Palm Dune Beach Lodge. As out of school holidays and in the week, we had the whole hotel to ourselves, and stayed for a further 2 days after. The venue was stunning - wedding on the beach, dinner in the boma. Food was lovely and service too. Highly recommended.
