We stayed at Wavecrest for 2 nights, a Friday and Saturday. What a really wonderful experience. The cost includes 3 meals a day and the food was excellent. It is a set menue, but there are choices (all of which were great). I had the best soups I have ever had, especially the tomato and the Sea Food. The Saturday... More

We had a lovely 4 nights stay at this hotel, situated on a piece of heaven. The staff was excellent, very friendly. There's no key for the rooms but you just can't feel safer and in good hands. That gives the feeling of a big family. But I must say that the SPA, some rooms and in general the whole... More

This is a lovely hotel and I can say that we will definitely be back some point next year. Our room was one that had not been upgraded yet but there was honestly nothing wrong with it, it was clean and everything works. Our room was also a sea facing room and it was lovely lying in bed staring out... More

We stayed in Wavecrest for a full day and one night before setting off on a hike up the coast. After what seamed like an everlasting bumpy ride we reached the hotel. The view across the bay was breathtaking and well worth the booking alone. Although the hotel is quite basic it fits its surrounding perfectly. Can't see what else... More

It would seem that no ALL share the enthusiasm of others and that living in the outback is not made for Many either. I must say I have been to Wavecrest many times and have endured ALL weather conditions thinkable....... In all of this the Staff at Wavecrest have been friendly and accommodating, have take insults (unecessary ones at that)... More

We visited Wavecrest in the beginning of October. We booked well in advance and looked forward to a relaxing and enjoyable holiday in the wild cost. We had a look at a few resorts on the Wild Coast, read some reviews and decided eventually to book at Wavecrest. I confirmed our booking a few days before our arrival and enquired... More

A very humble and relaxing place to spend a few days. The super helpful staff made for an excellent trip. While a bit reserved the staff replied "yes" to any and all requests. Whether a special meal or a packed lunch or arranging a guided walk or some bait. The food is simple but grows on you. They do need... More

The prefect place to be to take yourself out of the rush of the mad world in which we live... homely food, staff need to be a little more professional in dress and manners, rooms were clean but do need a coat of paint.. the rest is perfect. To be taken up the river by Sean was a marvellous experience,so... More

A little piece of paradise gently tucked away in between the lagoon and the sea. Just a step away from the ocean and lagoon had us feeling proud of our beautiful country that has so much to offer. The meals were fresh out of the ocean - seafood feast to say the least. The staff were open to trying new... More
