The guest house is lovely and very comfortable, when we were checked in we were given our choice of rooms, which was really lovely. I had several issues with the man who managed the 'night shift'. It was cold and raining outside and we wanted to order in something to eat, he said we could not eat in our room... More

The rooms are clean and comfortable with wireless and mod coms. Very nice bar. Lovely swimming pool with chaise longues to sun on by the pool. Very close to the beach, and an easy walk to local restaurants. A lovely experience in this pretty, excellently positioned village and fishing harbour area where the elite of South Africa can often be... More

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 overall guesthouse is beautiful with a nice pool and clean grounds which you can comfortably relax in. The rooms are wonderful with their own balcony, mine even had an outdoor shower! 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.

Our stay at Sandals was great. the staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms are immaculate. A lot of the "little things" are done well ensuring we had a very comfortable stay. Would definitely stay there again!
