We had a wonderful stay in this lovely guesthouse. Rooms were comfortable, private and the setting beautiful and just a stone's throwaway from the beach! The breakfast was amazing and the facilities are first class. Our host and the staff were welcoming and professional. Will stay there again!

After 3 years I returned to Sandals Guest House for more of the warm hospitality that greets all guests. The staff is very friendly, helpful and very efficient. Rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, especially impressive are the photographs taken by Tess and Rysiu - the owners- during their African travels. The garden and pool area are well maintained, yummy... More

The guest house is close to the beach and... More

I was fortunate enough to spend last weekend at Sandals Guest House. Other than the natural beauty of the area and Sandals setting, I was blown away by the quality, neatness and hospitality. Not only from it's owners, but their staff as well. Too often a person feels as if you are intruding while staying at guest houses. This was... More

Very nice guesthouse with real "African" atmosphere. Friendly and very helpful staff - warm welcome with drinks and fantastic chocolate cake ! Very good location in general: Just some walking-minutes to a nice beach at the Indian Ocean, some walking-minutes to the city-center with good restaurants and just 1,5 hours drive from there to the Addo-Nationalpark.

We spent 2 nights recently at Sandals & found the staff friendly & so accommodating. Heather made sure we had everything we needed when we booked in. We chose the Garden room, number 11, & loved having our own space with a lovely view of the pool & garden. The room has everything a traveler would need & the bed... More

I had the joy of spending a night at the beautiful Sandals Guest House Hotel. It was everything a solo traveler needed. The receptionist was warm and very helpful. My room had all the amenities and I loved my view. I also loved the big bathroom which was a God send after much travel. They have real beds. I met... More
