Stayed at Blue Lagoon for one night on a business trip. When we arrived, they could not give us access to the rooms we booked due to their card machine not working. I was given a smoking room instead, which did not do my allergies any good. luckily the room had an AC unit that I had on full blast... More

My wife and I celebrated our wedding at the Blue Lagoon Hotel and Conference Center on the 12th of April 2014. From start to finish, the entire experience was superlative. The highly capable assistance with decision making, venue decor, arrangements, referrals for service providers and hints on items that we had not even considered, coupled with a no fuss, all... More

I stayed here for business in March for 1 week, and was very happy with the location. It has a great setting overlooking the lagoon- direct access to the lagoon via a path from the hotel. The dassies all around the hotel are cute and not a disturbance. It is mainly for business guests. The rooms are average and smelt... More

Spent New Years with a couple of friends and we were just there for the restaurant and the service was appalling. The waiter did not acknowledge us upon arrival, guests that came after us got served and left before we got any service (even after we asked to be served). Eventually after many failed attempts, on of us walked to... More

No smoking room, but adjoining room had party and smoked all... More

We are the frequent guest of Blue Lagoon hotel, me and my husband. (The Melane's). I am so disappointed with the poor service, especially from the front desk staff. The manager or assistant with the name Mthe is rude and unfriendly, I am sure he is in the wrong place, probably he choose a wrong career. Whenever we arrived there,... More

Beware of this hotel which has wild Rock Rabbits (Dassies) living amongst hotel guests which bite and potentially have Rabbies. No one warns guests when entering, my wife was bitten and treated against Rabbies with large associated expenses and pain, management refuse to take any responsibility and refer one to their standard indemnity and have no courtesy to even reply...

Be aware this hotel is a huge party venue Friday and Wednesday evenings and they don't warn you in advance! 4 stars it's hard to believe? The staff although accommodating appear to be doing you a big favour! At every turn. I think They position themselves as a conference venue and club Friday and Wednesday so not a place for... More

We stayed at the Blue Lagoon for one night and it was amazing.They gave us a nice room with sea and Lagoon view and everything that you need was in the room.We had a small function at the hotel and they gave us the best service and snack platter it was just perfect. The service you get is excellent.
