We have had several stays at Cyrpess Lakes over the past 2 years. Even though the management has changed the overall ambience hasn't. It has become more and more tired and dated over the past coupel of years. Basic maintenance in the rooms leave a lot to be desired, staff seem to just want to tell you anything to get... More

Went on a girls weekend so we wanted a villa that would be comfortable and in a good location. Location is great right in the middle of the vineyards and the villas a good size, but it seems a little tired. The room fixtures and facilities needs some updating. We had some very wet weather and had to stay in... More

It took us a few hours of 'googling ' to decide on this resort for various reasons. We wanted 5 star, luxurious comfort , great food and location not to mention the day spa!!! We got to our villa and unloaded , looked around and thought quite comfortable but will need some money spent on it very soon. Reading the... More

great location, staff friendly and helpful. Villa was some distance from resort amenities , a coutesy bus was provided to transport . Brekafast was of a good quality, but it was difficult to get a table, that seated our party of 6 adults, as you could not bool or reserve a table. Great bed and pillows.

The "luxury" villa with "state of the art entertainment system" was so far fetched from the truth, and a complete joke! The place is old, in need of updating and the entertainment system consists of a 34cm box type TV. The breakfast is basic and crowded on a Sunday, and the place expensive!! The staff weren't too interested in our... More

The good - conference facilities, buggy transfers up to the villas (was fortunate to stay at the one furthest away from everything), the views, the many pools (I went to the pool near the villas), the large balconies, spacious rooms and living areas. How could I forget the delicious food for breakfast?! The bad - Some of the light switches... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom renovated villa which was in very good condition. Everything was in working order and we really had no complaints about the bedroom, except the very weak flow of water in the shower. The lounges are not suitable for 4 adults and when we turned the tv on we were each time subjected to 3... More

Just returned from a two night stay in a one bedroom villa. We loved the bush setting the villas are in and enjoyed the stroll down to the main building for breakfast and dinner. I had stayed here ten years ago and enjoyed it back then so that's why my husband and I stayed there this time. We were at... More
