Had a lagoon on and sea-facing room, a few short steps to the hotel gate with access to lagoon and beach. Stayed in September, quiet, and beautiful weather. Even got in a walk on the beach when it was totally deserted, was like being in my own private paradise. Loved!! We'll be back!

Service is extremely poor. Staff are unmotivated and have no skills in hospitality. I called for room service at 22H00, the operator who answered my order asked me to call the bar & make a separate order as she was "in the kitchen & not in the bar". Then at 23H30 I got a call after I'd already given up... More

The hotel is situated in a calm and serene location. Security is excellent and access is controlled. Watching the sun set to the secured pvt beach entrance is breathtaking. It also provides facilities to braai. You can take strolls along the lagoon and enjoy the cool sea breeze. The food is delicious and freshly cooked. You can enjoy a breakfast... More

My wife and I have stayed over at the Blue Lagoon Hotel & Conference Centre on at least six occasions, now, and have yet to experience anything other than great attention to detail, courteous staff, and immaculate rooms with stunning views.

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
